The circle is a sacred place in which magic is worked, where Wiccans can meet with the god and goddess. The word circle, may be misleading though. It is actually a sphere made of energy that encompasses all the participants and the altar. The magic circle defines the ritual area, holds in personal power and shuts out all distractions and negative energies. You can use objects on the ground to show the boundaries of the circle, such as stones, flowers, branches and candles, or crystals. It is formed of personal energy which is visualized as streaming from the body to form what looks like a bubble made of mist. Some Wiccans use tools such as the Athame, to direct this power, some use their hands.
Once the energy is flowing through your fingertips or chosen tool, walk the circle three times clockwise, envisioning the mist, or light or energy, whatever, trailing outward from you to form the sphere. When the circle is complete, shut off the energy flow by shaking your hand or pulling it back into your tool. Once the circle is cast, you are ready to perform your ritual, or magic.
