I am slightly confused about the below that i found from the following link. https://spells8.com/lessons/how-to-cast-spells/
Start by facing East and ask the Air to accompany you during your ritual and take care of you while you work. Then turn South and ask Fire for the same favor. Look West and ask for the help of Water. Finally, face North and call for the help of *Earth.
Look North and say: “Spirit of the Earth, my ritual has ended. I bid you farewell”. Repeat as you turn to the left, moving from North to West, then to South and East, saying goodbye to each element.
Does the order of the cardinal sign matter and why does it start from East clockwise but then to close, from North - counterclockwise?
I have my altar set up to the north, as Earth resonates within me strongly.
If I envoke elements starting from North clockwise, does this mean it would make sense to close from West, going counterclockwise? [as based on the logic given above].
Thanking you all in advance, blessed be!
