Description:
This image has been in my head for like 15 years now and I finally managed to work out the geometry on paper and get it to look right. >.< Those who are Pagan will most likely recognize the symbols. But if you're not, it's still a cool pic. **grins**

Elemental Casting Circle
Symbols and their Meanings

Copper Loops: Cardinal Directions, Connection to the World and Elements of the World, Time and Seasons
Silver Star: the 5 Elements of Power, the Form of "Man/Woman" (the Head above, Hands to either side, Feet below, Body in Center)
Gold Ring: Connection, Unity of All
Within the points of the Silver Star, starting in the East and moving clockwise: Red Triangle = Fire, Green Inverted Barred Triangle = Earth, Blue Inverted Triangle = Water, Gray Barred Triangle = Air, Silver Lightning Bolt = Spirit
Triple Spiral in the Center: The Universe/The Divine = (Goddess-Feminine/God-Masculine) Maiden/Youth (Silver), Mother/Warrior (Gold), Crone/Sage (Copper)
East Side, Top to Bottom: Sunrise/Morning, Spring (flower), First Quarter/Waxing Moon
South Side, Right to Left: Noon/Day, Summer (green upright leaf), Full Moon...
West Side, Bottom to Top: Sunset/Evening, Autumn (copper inverted leaf), Last quarter/Waning Moon
North Side, Left to Right: Night, Winter (silver snowflake), New Moon
Gray or Natural Background: Neutrality of the Universe and Magic – Do As You Will, Harm None.

To draw this out properly for spiritual or magical work:
1. Start at the top and draw the copper loops clockwise, following the loop to the right, then down, then left, then up.
2. Then draw the silver star going clockwise starting at the top and going down/right, then up/left, then right, then down/left, then back to the top.
3. Then draw the gold circle starting at the top and going clockwise around.
4. Then do the red triangle, then the green one, then the blue one, then the silver one, then the lightning bolt (for spirit), then the triple spiral in the center (silver first, then gold, then copper).
5. Then move to the outside symbols, starting with the ones on the right (flower first, then sun, then moon), then do the three at the bottom (green leaf first, then sun, then moon), then the three on the left (copper leaf first, then sun, then moon), then finally do the three at the top (snowflake first, then sun, then moon).

Clockwise is casting, counterclockwise is banishing/dispersing.  So, for example - creating an altar piece with this, you want to go clockwise, always.  You can use the loops/star/circle without the other symbols, drawn clockwise as described in steps 1, 2, and 3, to create a seal on something (ie - windows, mirrors, doors, etc) using blessed water you dip your right index finger into and draw with said finger.  I use this all the time to seal house entry points and mirrors, along with white sage "Smudging" to purify the space and cast away any negative entities or energies.  You can use a staff or sword point to draw out the loops/star/circle pattern clockwise to consecrate a spot for ritual work, then in reverse (circle/star/loops) counterclockwise to lift the seal and disperse the energies you had conjured.

The four seasons, the four moon phases, the strength of the annual sun cycle, the four elements encapsulated in a pentacle with spirit above the physical elements, the four cardinal points, the circle depicting the cycle of life, death and rebirth, and finally, the triune symbol in the center depicting the three phases of womanhood: maiden, mother and crone or the three aspects of a witch: student, initiate and elder/teacher. Very nicely done.

Thank you very much!  As I said in the description, this design was floating around in my head for 15 years before it finally cleared up enough for me to fully draw it in 2007 (I was ordained in 2004).  I posted it here for others to see and if they feel drawn to, they may use it in ritual and protection work (for positive workings only please).  :)  The description has further info on this.

You're one to talk considering you have a flaming tribal demon on your page.  Do not come here and condemn things you know nothing about.

No problemo~ do you mind if I incorporate some of the design int my own studies? I won't post it online just for my book of shadows! Mainly the Celtic knot formation around the circle.

Actually, you are more than welcome to transcribe the entire circle to your book. All I ask is that you are careful in your use of it and that you pass the knowledge on to others whom you may teach in the future. **smiles**

XD Thanks. That was 15 years in the making trying to figure out how to draw it out, along with a lot of soul searching and trying to get the symbols right. I'm glad people like it.

Andt ze witchcraft symbols on the board, starting from the top and going clock wise.

Wind, Fire, Earth, Water, Light. The center; Darkness. Somethin I learned at a party, and discovering different things like what is your inner of the elements? I was surprised to find mine was light, and my friend JB's was darkness. We thought it over, and found that it made sense.

o0 Yes. Especially since I thought I'd be dark and JB light. Looked into it and makes sense.
