Video: Wicca Circle casting by Priestess and Priest (Woodland Witches)

In a Wiccan ritual or any pagan Ceremony, creating Sacred space includes the casting of a Magic Circle – for safety and protection, and to keep the powers that are being worked with..so that magic can happen. Here we demonstrate the casting of a Wiccan Circle, with easy to learn words.

Traditionally, in a group or coven, the Priest hands the casting tool (a wand, an Athame or a Sword) to the Priestess. He then either steps aside or stands beside her and connects with her psychically and adds his energy . The Priestess channels his energy as well as her own energy to visualise and cast the magic circle (sphere). Traditionally they start at the North, move through East, South, West and end back in the North.

The Circle can then be sealed with a Pentagram. (In this video in may seem like a Earth invoking pentagram, but from the point of view of the Circle-casting Priestess, it is a Fire invoking pentagram). Once the Circle is cast, the Priestess hands the Athame / wand to the assisting Priest with a Kiss. He then places it on the Altar.

Then the magical work begins inside the Circle such as calling elemental quarters, raising energy, and invocation of God & Goddess, and more. (** Remember to ground the Circle once the full ceremony is completed!!!**)

(more videos demonstrating those will be uploaded soon).

Bright Blessings. -Mani & Louisa.
