Water Chant:

Salt Chant:



"Blessings be upon this creature of salt; let all malignity and hindrance be cast forth thencefrom, and let all good enter therein. Wherefore I bless thee and invoke thee, that thou mayest aid me."




I take this salt of the Earth, Blessed with the will of Fire; I take this water of spirit,Exorcised with mind of merit; I mix them with words of power, Dedicated to every Tower.



"By the power of moon and sun,
By the power of Spirit,earth and sea,
God and Goddess are part of One,
As I Will, so mote it be!"





Casting of the Circle:



"I conjure thee, O circle of power,
As thou encircle every Tower.
That thou beest a place of Truth, Joy and love,
Encircling Flight of Eagle, Hawk and Dove.
Mighty Aegis of the Lady and Lord,
Rampart of thought, action and word.
To Work in Peace, Powerful and Free,
Who walk between two worlds conjure thee;
A boundary to Protect, Concentrate and Contain,
That Power raised here be not in vain.
Wherefore do I bless thee and consecrate thee, in the names of Cernunnos and Aradia."





Sealing of the Circle (seal with water/salt mixture)

Linking air and fire!

Linking water with the Earth!
As the four directions are brought to merge,
Let influence of the mighty ones converge!"

Airy Lords of Spirit;
Let your influence of Power,
Aid our minds with merit!
I do summon, stir and call you up, to witness these rites and to guard the circle."

By wand, blade,and pentacle,
I call you now, attend to me!
This Is my will, so mote it be."

''Power thingy'' is how I will not describe circle casting. This circle casting has been taken from a number of places (example but this is one of many ways to cast circle. I would suggest reading an article on what a circle is so you have a better understanding. A circle is an area we enchant for our rituals and spells. It creates a liminal space like holy ground with a protective dome like barrier to keep us safe. Traditionally, you call the four quarters of east, south, west and north, but you do not have to. Some call on the elements associated with these directions, but are not necessary. While circle casting is a basic skill and one you should learn, not every witch casts circles when doing spellwork. It would come in handy for rituals where you invoke spiritual beings and for more powerful spells like curses where you need more precautions. Be sure to also find how you open circles.
