This circle casting makes use of invoking pentagrams.
On your altar, you will need a bell, an athame, a red candle, a chalice, a pentacle, a small bowl or jar of salt, a small bowl of water, and symbols for the God and Goddess (statues/candles/items from nature, etc).
Light the red candle and incense. Ring the bell three times, and then say:
"Let it be known the circle is about to be cast."
Beginning in the east, walking deosil, draw a circle around your available work space with the athame, saying:
"Here is the boundary of the circle of power
A protection that shall contain the power raised herein
Naught but love shall enter in
Naught but love shall emerge from within."
Lower the tip of the athame into the water, saying:
"As water is life's beginning
So salt is its end."
Scoop three pinches salt into the water with the athame and stir deosil, saying:
"Combined, they bring forth new life."
Draw a circle with the Holy Water, tracing the same circle you drew before with the athame. Then draw the circle with the incense, then the red candle.
Anoint yourself with Holy Water at the third eye, lips, throat, heart, and feet, saying:
"I consecrate myself, [magical name], in the names of the God and the Goddess."
Move to the East, and with the athame, draw an invoking Air pentagram, saying:
"Hail, forces of the East, powers of Air.
Golden eagle of the dawn,
Rising sun, come.
By the air that is His breath,
Send forth Your light; be here now."
Kiss the blade of athame. Then move to the South, and draw an invoking Fire pentagram, saying:
"Hail, forces of the South, powers of Fire.
Red lion of the noon heat,
Sparks of life, come.
By the fire that is His spirit,
Send forth Your flame; be here now."
Kiss the blade of athame. Then move to the West, and draw an invoking Water pentagram, saying:
"Hail, forces of the West, powers of Water.
Blue dolphin of dusk,
Ocean waves, come.
By the waters of Her living womb,
Send forth Your flow; be here now."
Kiss the blade of athame. Then move to the North, and draw an invoking Earth pentagram, saying:
"Hail, forces of the North, powers of Earth.
Black bull of midnight,
Fertile field, come.
By the earth that is Her body,
Send forth Your strength; be here now."
Kiss the blade of athame and return to the altar. Raising your athame high in salute, say:
"From cave and desert, sea and hill,
By incense, blade, cup, and pentacle,
All hail the Four Quarters!"
Assume the Goddess position and say:
"Crescent One of the starry skies
Flowered One of the fertile plain
Flowing One of the ocean's rolls
Blessed One of the gentle rains
Gracious Goddess, descend I ask,
Be with me in my sacred rite."
Assume the God position and say:
"Horned One of the wilderness
Winged One of the deep blue skies
Rayed One of the splendorous sun
Fallen One of the Samhain cries
Glorious God, descend I ask,
Be with me in my sacred rite."
Return to normal standing position and say:
"May the powers of the One
The source of all creation;
May the Goddess, Lady of the Moon,
And the God, Hunter of the Sun;
May the powers of the creative force,
Rulers of the elemental realms;
May the powers of the stars above and the earth below
Bless this place, and this time, and I who am with You."
Ring the bell three times then say:
"The circle is now cast
I am between the worlds
Beyond the boundaries of time
Where night and day,
Birth and death,
Joy and sorrow,
Meet as One."
The accompanying circle closing.
