Circle Casting, High Priestess:

“Hand to hand we cast the circle,”
The priestess walks to the next person in the circle and takes the hand to her left.
“In Perfect Love and Perfect Trust.”
They continue around the circle, walking to the next person and as each person clasps the hand to their left they say:
“In Perfect Love and Perfect Trust.”

High Priestess, raising her hands, still linked, group follows:
“We consecrate this circle of power to the Goddess and God.
Here may they manifest and bless their children.
This is a time that is not a time,
In a place that is not a place,
On a day that is not a day.
We come now to celebrate Litha!
We stand before the veil of mysteries.
May the Lord and Lady help and protect us on our magical journey.”
Unlink hands.
