Casting Directions for ‘Casting a Circle’
Set the candles around you at each cardinal directions (south, west, east and north). This will serve to mark your circle. The ring should be as wide as you’re tall.
Make a psiball using a planetary source. If you dont know how to do this, simply cup your palms (without letting them touch eachother) and choose the world you will take the energy from. I reccommend starting with the planet that rules your zodiac sign. (if youre a Scorpio, utilize Pluto, if youre an Aries, use Mars, etc.) Visualize the world lowering itself over you and raining energy all over and into you. Guide this energy to your hands and imagine it swirl into a ball in the distance between them.
Add more energy to your psiball. Visualize the planet spilling more energy. Guide it to your hands and into the psiball so as to make it more dense.
Move your hands to guide the energy across the circle. Walk around the circle directing the energy into it. Imagine it forming into an orb around your space.
As you walk the ring, chant its purpose: Walk the circle thrice about to ____. (An example would be: Walk the circle thrice about to keep undesirable influence out.)
Seal the ring, once done. I do this by saying As above, so below this circle is sealed. So mote it be, and then stomping my foot on the floor.
If youre going to invoke any other entities or energies, then do it now.
Once you no longer need the circle, thank Earth and any other entity you invoked, and just draw back the energy and seal the ring. I do this by stating The circle is open, but never broken. Merry meet and merry part until we merry meet again, then stomping my foot again.
