The magical circle is a sacred place where all rites and ceremonies are carried
out. It acts as a doorway to the Gods.
More important it is a boundary of concentrated power. Within the circle you
are able to transcend the physical and open your mind to a higher level of consciousness.
In ancient times circles were drawn around sick people to protect them against
demons. The circle was also used in ancient Pagan rites.
The circle serves to keep out unfriendly spirits. Negative energy is cleared
prior to casting a circle.
The circle should be nine feet in diameter but larger circles are sometimes
cast for large groups. The alter and ritual tools are placed inside the circle.
The circle is drawn on the ground or sometimes laid out with a cord. The witch
visualizes a field of energy.
The working space of the circle is in fact a three dimensional sphere. Candles
are placed on the ground at the cardinal points.
Coveners enter through a symbolic gate which is then closed. The circle is then
consecreted with the four elements.
Then the gaurdians of the four elements are invoked. The God and Goddess are
invoked through ritual.
The purpose of the ritual is then stated and carried out. At the close of the
ceremony food and drink is offered to the coverners.
The candles are then extinguished and the circle is ritually closed
THE FOUR QUARTERS
All points of the magic circle are associated with an element, ritual tool,
color and attributes.
NORTH : To the ancient Pagans the heavens spun around the north star and they
aligned their temples to this star. North is associated with darkness, mystery and the unknown.
The north is also associated with the colors gold or black. Some traditions
align their altars to the north.

colors are red or white.
It corresponds to the element of air, the asthame or sword. Most traditions
align their altars to the east.
The northeast is the dividing line between the path of darkness(north) and the
path of light(east).

fire are associated with south.
