Casting the Circle
I conjure thee, O circle of power,
As thou encircle every Tower.
That thou best a place of Truth, Joy and love,
Encircling Flight of Eagle, Hawk and Dove.
Mighty Aegis of the Lady and Lord,
Rampart of thought, action and word.
To Work in Peace, Powerful and Free,
Who walk between two worlds conjure thee;
A boundary to Protect, Concentrate and Contain,
That Power raised here be not in vain.
Wherefore do I bless thee and consecrate thee,
In the name of Cernunnos and Aradia.

New Moon Chant
This I will by magic rite.
That which troubles me tonight,
Take with You on Your dark flight.
By Your grace and by Your might,
Let it never
see the light
Waning Moon Chant
Grandmother of the dying light,
Work my Will by magic rite,
Take this burden to Your side,
That it may vanish with new moon’s night
Full Moon Chant
Full of love,
To this sacred space
To ask in faith that You will do
This favor that I have asked of You
Waxing Moon Chant
Maiden racing cross the sky,
Work my Will by magic rite.
Make the ______
As the light increases
Chant for a Circle Dance
Faerie folk around me go
Moon of silver
Sun of gold
Air and Earth
Ring the Circle of Rebirth
Deosil the dance is done
Bound as One
Heart to heart
Lip to lip
Five are the points of Fellowship
Blessed Be Thee!
Blessed Be Me!
Never bound, always Free!
Opening the Circle: Celtic Method
Draw the Circle
I consecrate this Circle of Power
To the Ancient Gods
Here may They manifest and bless Their child
At the altar
This is a time that is not a time
In a place that is not a place
On a day that is not a day
I stand at the threshold between the worlds
Before the veil of the Mysteries
May the Ancient Ones help and protect me
On my magical journey
To Make a Sacred Place
“I cleanse and purify this place
Let all adverse influences depart
With all the enemies of my Art
Depart, Depart, Swiftly Depart!”
