North

Post # 1
So I was telling my boyfriend a little about circle casting and he asked: magnetic North or true North, and I realized I hadn't seen that specified in any books I've read.

Curious if anyone has insights/opinions on this as far as candle placement.

North, South,East,West, are "general" directions. "Towards the North", for instance. But some may indeed use a compass1

I know some who use a compass, but I tend to go 'sun rise is there [place candle] sunset is there [place candle] so north is roughly here and south is roughly there.' If you cast in the same place you get to know where the directions roughly are.

I work like Nekoshema, use sun for direction.

I do the exact same as Nekoshema.

I alternate between using a compass and Nekoshema's method. :)

Thanks everyone! That was kind of my impression that it needn't be exact exact, though at least facing the general right way :)

There is also a technique where you cast two layers of the the circle where the inner one is where you set the candles or other pieces in the directions that are best for you to set them in while the outer layer realligns them into the proper directions. It's not a traditional method, but I find it can be useful.
