First of all, I’ve got to explain a bit here. This is why I started a new topic, so I wouldn’t hog the page. When I was a little girl, long before I even knew paganism and Wicca was a real thing, I loved A Swiftly Tilting Planet by Madeleine L’Engle. Well, I loved A Wrinkle in Time and A Wind in the Door too, but Planet had a special place in my heart because it had The Poem. The one that I wrote out and memorized and used when I was sad or lonely or scared.
When I went to sit down to write something I wanted something that would comfort me as that poem did, but that would be easy for me to remember. I don’t know if I’ve done either one just yet, it’s too early in the game. But I’m at least happy with what I wrote and can use it to cast a circle. That’s something.
Oh, and for all you wondering, in the last bit where I use the term bell, I mean an actual bell. I have a little silver bell I use to open and close a circle. I’m not really able to get up and walk the circle, so I use the bell and imagine sound waves coming out and making the circle. It works for me so why not?
So here’s my entry to the Weekly Witchy Challenge - Elemental Mastery. Hope y’all like it!
Elemental Circle Casting by Kasie
I call on Air to bring fresh wind!
Wisdom and knowledge to reside within!
Guardian of the East hear my words,
And surround me with the wings of birds!
I call on Fire to bring me heat!
Passion, action, and excitement to meet!
Guardian of the South, hear me speak,
And surround me with the blaze mystique!
I call on Water to bring me rain!
Emotions and loving action to gain!
Guardian of West, hear this phrase,
And surround me with your comforting waves.
I call on Earth to bring me rocks!
Mental and magical objects to block!
Guardian of North, hear me say,
And surround me with your comforting soil this day!
On this day and in this hour,
I call on Spirit to lend me power!
Energy gathers all around
And anchors the Circle into the ground!
With these words, I cast a spell!
Safety and grounding at the sound of a bell.
Lord and Lady heed my call,
and protect me from negative energies with an impenetrable wall!
No harm shall come to you or me!
As I will so mote be!
