Casting A Circle With A Rope

Postby LadySibella » Mon Mar 26, 2012 9:42 am

I read on the Net that the best color of rope to cast a circle is "red", up to now I had a blue rope...I am wondering if I should change it for a red one? If "red" is truly the best color...why is it so?
From what I know red is for the element of fire, still if the color matters than wouldn't "white" be more appropriate as it is the color for protection???
Thanks for your help :D

I've never heard that. Pretty much every source that says to mark the Circle with a rope uses a white one.

Blue is the colour most Circles are visualised in, so I'd say your blue rope will be fine :)

White seems more practical to me as well. Listen to your intuition.

Thanks Raynelae :D I will go for a white one, it had seem logical to me too...I wanted to replace mine because it is so thin that it is a hassle each time I cast a circle and I wanted to go ahead and get something thicker. I was about to go for white when i read about "red" being a better color...And I could not make sense out of it, that is why I wanted to check with you on EUTM.

Thanks again to you both!

Red is traditionally a colour of protection, I assume thats why you saw that a better colour was red. White does seem more fit for the purpose, though.

I've only been aware of using rope as a visual guide so I'm not up on the meaning of "casting a circle with a rope."
Could someone explain the process please if it's different than setting a visual guide? Much obliged. What if the rope is charged with the intent as has been mentioned elsewhere? Does an energy barrier still have to be projected (?) as it says below that no magic channels thru the demarcation objects. Are these different people's variations? I found this:

"After physical purification is complete, cleanse the area spiritually. In most practices, this is a meditative process which involves visualizing spiritual impurities and pushing them away physically. If your practice involves a catalyst, such as a wand, staff, charm, or broom, use this to aid you. Some ritual practitioners use purifying elements such as witch hazel oil or burning sage to aid in the purification process. Once the area for the ritual is prepared, it is helpful for some practitioners to mark the intended area. While advanced practitioners can often get by without physical markers, beginners often find it helpful to have a physical, visual boundary to focus on. Most ritual circles are as wide as the practitioner is tall, though powerful casters can make them larger, and it is not too difficult to make it smaller if desired. To demarcate an area for the circle, any material is acceptable. A circle of stones, one drawn in chalk, sprinkled salt, or even a loop of rope arranged in a circle are all perfectly fine. Remember that the physical element is to help the caster focus; no Magick is channeled through the markings, so they can be anything that you find helpful."
