Let’s Talk Witch – Strengthening the Circle
A circle of light or a physical circle can be strengthened by casting three elemental circles just inside it.
Some practitioners aim to put the triple circle on top of the light one but I prefer radiating circles, albeit close together.
If using empowered salt and water as one of your elemental circles, you would empower the mix first before the elemental casting.
The three clockwise circles, either positioned one over the other or extending inwards, should be made with salt and water, or just salt (the first), with incense (the second) and with the directional candle of the south or a central one (the third). If you use salt for circle one (and not the salt and water mix), use incense for number two and magical water droplets for the third circle.
Create simple elemental casting chants according to the substances you are using and the nature of the spell or ritual.
*Note* With a group, before the triple circle casting invite them to walk the triple circle in line after you as you cast it. You can use three people to make the triple circle by having them each carry a substance around it. You need not use words for this unless you wish. With a group it is easier to make the three circles over one another just inside the original light circle.
You can end the triple element casting by sprinkling each person with a few drops of either the saltwater or the water alone saying:
You are Blessed!
If you are working alone, end the triple circle casting by taking the water and sprinkling yourself, saying:
May the Lord and Lady God and Goddess bless me and my spell/ritual.
