An article on how to open and close a circle.

If you have one, set your altar in the center of a clean area. If not, simply sit/kneel/stand on the floor in the center of a cleared area. Light one white candle and envision a circle of white light around you and your altar.

Opening the circle

Face North and chant:

"Hail to the guardians of the North, mighty earth who feeds us, our home and mother, welcome to the circle."

Now face East and chant:

"Hail to the guardians of the East, blessed air who cools us, the breath of life in all, welcome to the circle."

Next, face the South and chant:

"Hail to the guardians of the South, sacred flame that sparks life in all, our protection and father, welcome to the circle."

Finally, face the West and chant:

"Hail to the guardians of the West, Waters of life, where all are cleansed and reborn, welcome to the circle."

Proceed with your ritual.

Closing the circle

Face West and chant:

Hail to the guardians of the West, thank you for attending this circle. Go in peace and know you are always welcome here.

FaceSouth and chant:

Hail to the guardians of the South, thank you for attending this circle. Go in peace and know you are always welcome here.

Face East and chant:

Hail to the guardians of the East, thank you for attending this circle. Go in peace and know you are always welcome here.

Face North and chant:

Hail to the guardians of the North, thank you for attending this circle. Go in peace and know you are always welcome here.

The circle is now broken and your spell work complete. At this time you may snuff out your candle.
