Spells

Spells are used mostly by solitary witches, when doing spells you have to want it with all of your being, your thoughts, your desires, you want to drive all your magical power into it.

*with this being said- it is the main reason it is better to do it for yourself then for someone else, you are more likely to put in all your energy for yourself,  then for someone else*

In order to do a Spell you must first ground yourself and cast a circle.

Casting a circle is a safe place to work you magic. A place that is blessed by the god and Goddess. You call on the elements. Below I will go step by step on how I myself cast.

  1. Find a space quite, safe, one may be outside in the garden, or in a room just for you.
  2. Depending on if your working in a group or by yourself is how big your circle will be. 3-5 feet is good when working alone. Sometimes you can work in smaller areas if needed 2-3 ft.
  3. you can physically mark your area with chalk, salt, stones,sticks or even a rope tied at the ends.( when working inside I find the rope works best) You may just want to visualize the circle.
  4. place tea candles in the four directions, color candles that represent the element or you may use glasses with the elements with in them. As the photo above (similar).
  5. Once you have your circle -Call the quarters this is also known as cardinal points, work clockwise (Deosil) .Start at the north and work

tip*Earth is to North, Fire is to South, Water to the West, and Air to the East

I use the spell found in Silver Ravenwolf Solitary Witch I found on page 55 in her book. I find this is the one I do the most and have it  better memorized.

Calling the Quarters

Hail guardians of the north, element of earth, and all ye in the realm of Faery,I,(say your name),do summon,stir,and call you forth to witness this rite and protect this sacred space.            So mote it be 

Hail guardians of the east, element of air,and  all ye in the realm of Faery,I,(say your name),do summon,stir,and call you forth to witness this rite and protect this sacred space.                                 So mote it be.

Hail guardians of the South, element of fire,and all ye in the realm of Faery,I,(say your name),do summon,stir,and call you forth to witness this rite and protect this sacred space.                                 So mote it be.

Hail guardians of the west, element of water,and all ye in the realm of Faery,I,(say your name),do summon,stir,and call you forth to witness this rite and protect this sacred space.                                So mote it be.

Tip* Remember this is your place and none must enter unless giving permission.If you must leave during the spell ( maybe you forgot a tool, or herb) make a door. Light each candle when moving around or you may make a sign in the air with your wand, finger, or an incense above.Do what feels right for you. Visualize and feel the energy coming into the circle.Open your arms and welcome the guardians in to your being.

When you are finish with your spell don’t just leave with nothing being said give thanks to the guardians. When releasing work counterclockwise (Widdershins)

guardians of the (direction), element of (element),thank you for participating in my circle this night(day). Go if you must, stay if you like. Hail and farewell.

Blessed be
