where to start

Ok, I've read many books, especially Scott Cunningham and Raymond Buckland (who were both awesome). I absorbed them like a dry sponge getting water. Gotten the tools that I need and made my own alter. A voice keeps telling me "ok you are ready! What are you waiting for?". I honor God/ess every morning and night. Even my husband says that since I've gotten back on this path things are going so much better for us. So can someone please tell me why I am so nervous about casting a circle and just "doing it"?

Don't be afraid! I was once afraid to cast a circle and practice Wicca and Witchcraft. The more you practice, the sooner your fear will fade away.
Blessed be :)

Ask your guides to help you at first. Ask them for protection and imagine pure brilliant white light to fill you. Have everything ready and at hand first and do a run through first. Good luck, and follow your intuition.

Try simplifying the ritual. Don't attempt the the whole ritual all at once. Invocation can be intimidating so replace it with an acknowledgment - you can’t offend anyone by greeting them. Or use a different circle casting method like ex.1 below. :D

Re - prepare sacred space - 2 examples
. We can work & worship in a simple circle. Simple circles dissipate when walked through.
. Start & end each pass at ex.1. north, or ex.2. east.
1. Broom-sweep a circular area <~widdershins to cleanse, then point & walk deosil~> to project energy circle, or
2. Walk three circuits deosil~>: 1st sprinkle combined salt & water to cleanse & introduce earth/water; 2nd waft incense smoke to bless &'introduce air/fire; 3rd to point & project energy circle
. Words for both: Round, around & round about, all good in & all bad out. / As I walk the circle is cast, guarding all & holding fast. (ref.Doreen Valiente
