In occultism and magic the magic circle is a sacred and
purified space where all rites, magical work, and ceremonials are
conducted. It serves as a boundary for a reservoir of concentrated
power and is the doorway from this world to the spirits and gods.
The circle is symbolic of wholeness, perfection and unity; the
creation of the cosmos; the womb of Mother Earth; and the cycle of
the seasons and birth-death-regeneration. Within the circle it is
believed possible to transcend the physical, to expose the mind to
deeper and higher levels of consciousness.
The magician enters the circle expecting to unite the spirits
or gods with the forces of nature in a harmonious relationship.
Positive or desired deities are invoked, invited, and not
commanded, evoked, to witness and participate in the rites. The
circle also serves to protect those within it from negative
spirits and energies. The circle is been thoroughly cleansed of
all unfriendly spirits and negative energies, witches frequently
symbolize this by sweeping the space with a boom.
Circles since ancient times have been reputed for magical
properties. They were drawn around beds of the sick and mothers
who recently bore children to protect them from demons. Their
remnants which are seen in the stone circles of Britain give
credence to the importance of the circle.
Circles were frequently cast for protection in order to ward
off psychic attacks or physical intrusion of a home. They must be
recast because their protective and magical powers are not
permanent, but must be renewed with ceremonies.
The magic circle contains the four quarters, or cardinal
