You know... following timing and numerology, many magicians will turn to the space in which they work to perform magickal acts. Designating a sacred space is one of the oldest forms of magick and is almost a prerequisite at this point...
In the West Country of England, these spaces are called Whist and Hood, and they are the loci of spirits... a way between worlds. When you create a sacred space, especially by casting a magick circle, many spirits and forces can be made available in greater abundance when you call on them.
In the Greek and Egyptian Mystery Traditions though... stretching all the way back to the Graeco-Egyptian Magical Papyri, magick circles were used as a means of protection from spirits you would call on... kinda like a barrier.
But... where did magick circles come from? And more importantly... how would you go about creating one?
Well... as usual, we got you covered! In today's episode, we're gonna take you through the theory, history and practice of casting magick circles... Where they came from, why they're used, why they work... and of course, a mini tutorial on how to go about creating your own!
On a physical level, they just act as places for you to do spiritual work in a focused manner, like setting up your magickal office or delineating your workspace, which also means they let you invite only the people or energies you want in, and keep uninvited guests out.
In the more esoteric sense though... magick circles are like a half-way house or travellers rest stop while Astral Projecting. It’s a place that exists in both worlds at once, and when you’re inside it, you have one foot in this world, and one in another.
So, come learn why spirits love and hate them, and how you can integrate them into your practice!
