Closing the Circle


When the Circle's work is done, R goes to the East, athame in hand, salutes, and draws a banishing Earth pentagram, saying:


Ye Lords of the Watchtowers of the East, ye Lords of Air, we thank you for attending our rites; and ere ye depart to your beauteous realms, we bid thee Hail and Farewell...


Hail and Farewell! (R extinguishes Quarter Candle)

Repeat for the remaining Quarters, addressing each with the titles by which it was invoked.

R thanks and says goodbye to the God and Goddess. (Words To Be Decided.) and extinguishes altar candles.

R then thanks and dismisses any spirits who have gathered.


The Circle is open but unbroken. Merry meet, merry part and merry meet again.

R extinguishes the Presence Lamp, saying:


This rite is ended!


So mote it be!
