Variation on the Open Alexandrian Circle cast.
Connect to the Earth and feel the energy flowing through you.
Connect to the altar and ask for the blessings of the Lord and the Lady
Standing in front of the altar in the East, start walking the circle in an anitclockwise direction. Feel the energy flowing through you into the boundary of the circle. Send the energy out from you fingertip or your athame.
“I Conjure Thee O Circle of Power, that thou beist a boundary between the worlds of Men and the realms of the Mighty Ones, that thou beist a guardian and a protection and a place wherein we may meet in love and trust and worship of the Lord and the Lady. And I do command that thou dost preserve and contain all powers that we shall raise within thee. So mote it be.”
Keep walking until you return to the East.
Take up the Chalice of water and place it on the Pentacle. Dip your athame into the cup and then draw a banishing Earth pentagram over it saying:
“Creature of Water, I do cast from thee all ills and impurities of the Spirit…”
Draw a Water invoking pentagram over it saying:
“And I do bless thee and consecrate thee in the most holy and perfect names of Lord and Lady”
Remove the cup from the Pentacle and place the dish of salt upon it. Take your athame and dip it into the salt. Draw an Earth invoking pentagram over it saying:
“Creature of Salt, I do bless thee and consecrate thee in the most holy and perfect names of Lord and Lady”.
Take the salt off the pentacle and place the chalice of water upon it once more. Take a few pinches of salt and mix them into the water.
Take the mixed salt and water around the circle, sprinkling it as you go. This is to consecrate the circle with the elements of Earth and Water.
Place the chalice back upon the altar.
Take up the censer of incense and place it on the pentacle. Run your athame through the smoke. Draw an Earth banishing pentagram over it saying:
Creature of Air, I do cast from thee all ills and impurities of the Spirit…”
Draw an Air invoking pentagram over it saying:
“And I do bless thee and consecrate thee in the most holy and perfect names of Lord and Lady”
Take the censer around the circle to consecrate it with the element of Air.
Take the censer back to the altar.
Place the fire candle upon the pentacle. Run your athame through the flame. Draw an earth banishing pentagram over the flame saying:
“Creature of Fire, I do cast from thee all ills and impurities of the Spirit…”
Draw a Fire invoking pentagram over the candle saying:
“And I do bless thee and consecrate thee in the most holy and perfect names of Lord and Lady”
Take the fire candle around the circle to consecrate the circle with the element of Fire.
Return the candle to the altar.
Feel your circle around you… above and below… a sphere of protection and power.
Say: “The Circle is cast, blessed be!”
The next step is to ask the Guardians of the Quarters to be present.
Face the East.
Draw an Air invoking pentagram in front of you and say:
“Guardian of the East, Lord of Air, I do ask that you attend my circle and witness my rite”
Visualise the Lord of Air in front of you, feel the breeze coming from that quarter.
Face the North.
Draw a Fire invoking pentagram in front of you and say:
“Guardian of the North, Lord of Fire, I do ask that you attend my circle and witness my rite”.
Visualise the Lord of Fire in front of you, feel the heat coming from that quarter.
Face the West.
Draw a Water invoking pentagram in front of you and say:
“Guardian of the West, Lord of Water, I do ask that you attend my circle and witness my rite”.
Visualise the Lord of Water in front of you, listen to the waves coming from that quarter.
Face the South.
Draw an Earth invoking pentagram in front of you and say:
“Guardian of the South, Lord of Earth, I do ask that you attend my circle and witness my rite”.
Visualise the Lord of Earth in front of you, smell the rich soil.
When you have completed calling the quarters move back to the altar.
It is now time to open the gateway for the Gods. This is called the Central invocation.
Stand in the centre of the circle. Raise your arms to sky and say:
“Our Lady of the Moon and our Lord of Death & Resurrection,

We do build this circle, a place sacred and apart in thine honour,



Descend we pray and fill this place with love and thy power this night.”
Slowly lower your arms as you feel the power building within the circle.
When your arms are lowered say:
“So mote it be.”
Raise energy into the circle by dancing or chanting or performing the Witches Rune.
It is now time to perform any work, rituals or worship within the circle.
Cakes and Ale:
Place the wine in the pentacle and plunge your athame into the cup saying:
“As the Athame is to the Male, so the Cup is to the female and when they are cojoined they bring forth the great blessing”
Drink some of the wine but save some for libation after the circle.
Place the plate of cakes onto the pentacle. Touch each cake with the tip of your Athame saying:
“O Queen most secret, Bless this food into my body bestowing Health, Wealth, Happiness, Luck and that deep Joy which is the knowledge of Thee.”
Farewell the Guardians that you have called.
Stand at the East, draw an Air banishing pentagram and say:
“Guardian of the East, Lord of Air, I do thank thee for attending this circle and I do bid thee Hail and Farewell.”
Face the North, draw a Fire banishing pentagram and say:
“Guardian of the North, Lord of Fire, I do thank thee for attending this circle and I do bid thee Hail and Farewell.”
Face the West, draw a Water banishing pentagram and say:
“Guardian of the West, Lord of Water, I do thank thee for attending this circle and I do bid thee Hail and Farewell.”
Face the South, draw an Earth banishing pentagram and say:
“Guardian of the South, Lord of Earth, I do thank thee for attending this circle and I do bid thee Hail and Farewell.”
It is now time to close the circle. You are going to visual the energies of the circle dissipating naturally and the energies returning to the Earth.
Stand in the centre and say:
By the Earth that is Her body, by the Air of her sweet breath, by the fire of her bright spirit and by the Water that is her blood, may the circle be open but unbroken, merry meet, merry part and merry meet again.
Cut a doorway in the circle and depart, remembering to put out any naked flames and charcoal.
