Tip: Represent the Elements Simply
I've always felt the need to do more than simply light a candle when calling the Watchtowers. Today's Witchy Words tip stems from what I place at the corners of my circle as a firm representation of the elements.
I breathed into a container as a representation of the east. I then gathered ashes to place in a jar for the south. I filled another container with water for the west. Last but not least, to represent the north, I placed soil in the final container.
I did these as part of a full moon ritual some time ago. I then placed them outside under the light of the moon to charge and purify. They are now a permanent part of my process when casting a circle.
How do you represent the elements for your altar or circle?
