Cast the Circle

Cast the circle in whatever fashion you use.


Calling in the Elements

Calling East:

Spirits of the East, spirits of air,

Awaken us with the Spring breeze

Fill our lungs, and join us

In celebration of the endless renewal of light and life. (light yellow candle)


Calling South:

Spirits of the South, spirits of fire,

Warm us with the rising sun

Quicken our hearts, and join us

In celebration of the unfolding of the Earth. (light red candle)


Calling West:

Spirits of the West, spirits of water,

Wash us in gentle rain

Revive our longing, and join us

In celebration of boundless possibility. (light blue candle)


Calling North:

Spirits of the North, spirits of earth,

Clothe us in the finery of new growth

Support our steps, and join us

In celebration of a world made green again. (light green candle)

Calling the Goddess:

Goddess of Earth, mother of all

With love we greet you

As night and day once again

Greet each other in passing.

Be with us, complete our circle,

And help us always to see your face

In all that lives. (light pink candle)


Calling the God:

God of the growing light

With love we greet you

As night and day once again

Greet each other in passing.

Be with us, complete our circle

And help us always to see your face

In all that lives. (light purple candle)


The circle is cast, the ritual begun.

May the powers of the Ancient One,

Source of all creation,

May the powers of the Goddess, bright lady of the moon,

And the God, horned hunter of the sun,

May the powers of the guardian spirits,

Rulers of the elemental realms,

May the powers of the stars above and the Earth below,

Bless this time, this place, and all who gather here.

Blessed be!


Spell to restore balance to your life.

Light the black candle and say:

Sometimes life gets chaotic.

We celebrate to make it right-

To strike a balance on the equinox

Of equal day and equal night.


Light the white candle and say:

Sometimes life gets chaotic.

We celebrate to make it right-

To strike a balance on the equinox

Of equal day and equal night.


As we light these candles,

We begin to re-center.

Restoring balance

Welcoming in earth’s splendor.


Take some incense and sprinkle it on top of the charcoal tablets.

Say:

Return balance to our lives,

Using the harmony of equal day and equal night

To tune our lives.

Aligning our intentions and actions

So we may thrive.


Balance Spell Jar

What you will need:

A jar or container with a lid

Salt

Black pepper

Black and White Candles

How to make it:

Charge your salt with positivity and happiness

Charge your pepper with negativity and sadness

Mix them and put them in your jar

Seal the jar with wax from the two candles


Once this is complete, say:

With the magick done here today

We continue the cycle

To stabilize our lives

For time eternal.


As we align forces,

within and without

To equalize

and balance out

As the chaos dies.


We release this magick into the air

So mote it be

Into the Goddess’s care.


Releasing the Elements

Releasing the God:

God of the growing light

For the Spring

For your warmth

For your power

For the lengthening day

For the energy that surrounds us

For your presence within our circle

We thank you, and ask your blessing,

Until we gather here again.

Releasing the Goddess:

Goddess of Earth, mother of all

For the Spring

For your love

For your power

For the pomegranate

For the fertility of the world we share

For your presence within our circle

We thank you, and ask your blessing,

Until we gather here again.


Releasing North:

Spirits of the North

We thank you for your presence here

And ask for your blessing as you depart

May there be peace between us now and forever (extinguish your candles as you go).


Releasing West:

Spirits of the West

We thank you for your presence here

And ask for your blessing as you depart

May there be peace between us now and forever (extinguish your candles as you go).


Releasing South:

Spirits of the South

We thank you for your presence here

And ask for your blessing as you depart

May there be peace between us now and forever (extinguish your candles as you go).


Releasing East:

Spirits of the East

We thank you for your presence here

And ask for your blessing as you depart

May there be peace between us now and forever (extinguish your candles as you go).


The circle is open, and yet unbroken.

May the love of the Goddess be ever in your heart.

Merry meet and merry part,

And merry meet again.
