How to cast a spell?

Post by crazymagicalbeau »

so far for awhile I have been struggling to death with just learning how to cast spells.
I've been studying for awhile and so far I'm learning
Its confusing to me!!! ::darkmood::

I have written my spell, I know the intent, I have my candles ready ...

I've meditated calmed my mind,

am I suppose to just close my eyes, start chanting the spell and visualize...the results?
repeatedly?

If you follow a Wiccan tradition, it is traditional to cast a circle for protection before performing the actual spell. Casting a circle is where you call upon the elements and watchtowers to protect you during magical work, it also helps some people direct energy. Before casting the circle, you should cleanse your magical space, there are many ways such as sweeping the area, using salt and water, incense, and smudging.
Blessed be

Here is a ritual of casting and un-casting a circle. I found it on this site :)


If you have one, set your altar in the center of a clean area. If not, simply sit/kneel/stand on the floor in the center of a cleared area.

Casting the Circle

Light one white candle. Envision a circle of white light around you (and your altar).

Face North and say:

Hail to the guardians of the North, mighty earth who feeds us, our home and mother, welcome to the circle.

Next, face East and say:

Hail to the guardians of the East, blessed air who cools us, the breath of life in all, welcome to the circle.

Next, face the South and say:

Hail to the guardians of the South, sacred flame that sparks life in all, our protection and father, welcome to the circle.

Finally, face the West and say:

Hail to the guardians of the West, Waters of life, where all are cleansed and reborn, welcome to the circle.

Proceed with your ritual.

Closing the Circle

At the end do the following:

Face the West and say:

Hail to the guardians of the West, thank you for attending this circle. Go in peace and know you are always welcome here.

Face the South and say:

Hail to the guardians of the South, thank you for attending this circle. Go in peace and know you are always welcome here.

Face the East and say:

Hail to the guardians of the East, thank you for attending this circle. Go in peace and know you are always welcome here.

Face the North and say:

Hail to the guardians of the North, thank you for attending this circle. Go in peace and know you are always welcome here.

The circle is now broken and your spellwork complete. At this time, snuff your candles and do any parts of the spell that require you to leave the circle (burying an item, scattering the ashes etc.)

Sorry...just thought it would help. You don't have to cast a circle. You could just create sacred space and then perform your spell.

The poster has prepared their spell & just needs to set intent & use the meditative state to know the spell is done.

. Dab or rub the spell item with an oil to hold the psychic charge.
. Ground & Center - draw energy from earth & sky to the belly through the breath.
. Know the goal in your mind. Hold the thought once about 20 seconds. Using chanting or speaking helps. Repeat phrase three times because the 3rd time's the charm. As you speak...set intent.
. Set intent by pushing that psychic charge from the belly thru the hands, gaze & breath & into the spell item.
. light the candle after setting intent. Take a minute to gaze into the flame until it is all you see. In the slightly hypnotic calmness feel the satisfaction & know it's done. This sets the energy into the etheric realm where it draws mass to itself. When enough mass is attained it sets events in motion for the spell to happen in the physical 3-D.
. Let the candle burn in a safe place while you do other things.
. Dispose of candle stubs in household trash. Their job is done.
