Casting a Circle With a Broom

For Pagans and Wiccans

The below is an example of how to cast a pagan and/or Wiccan circle utilizing a broom. The use the broom in this manner will certainly created the needed actions. Always remember that these types of things will work without any doubt as long as you do not have any doubt. As with any type of spiritual crafting/magic and spellwork, it is based on intent.
(Say this rhyme while sweeping the circle.)
  •  Here flies the Broom to a Place not a place,
  • While the light of the Moon shines down on my face. (night)
                                  or
  • While the light of the Sun shines down on my face. (daylight)
  • I Journey by Broom to a Time not a Time.
  • The Mystery dwells in the words of my rhyme.
 (Starting in the East, sweep sunwise and scribe out the circumference of the circle, repeating the rhyme if need be until the starting point is reached.)
  • Then say:  “The circle is cast. Let no one leave the Circle unless there be urgent need.
  • Should such need arise, cut a gate, leave, and close the gate after you.”
Then begin your ritual. 
 To open the Circle:
 (Take the Broom and, starting at the East, sweep widdershins to banish the energy.)
Say:
  • “As I sweep this Circle round, magic vanish in the ground.”
(Repeat until you return to the starting Point. ) Then say your customary closing.
I use the old traditional closing:
“May the love of the Goddess be ever in your heart.
Merry Meet and Merry Part, and Merry Meet Again.”
