Book Study – Casting Sacred Space

The use of casting as a means of establishing sacred space is a common practice in Wiccan and Neopagan traditions. In fact it is widely considered the most important step in spiritual and magickal work. And yet few really know how to do it or do it well.

In Casting Sacred Space, Neopagan practitioner Ivo Dominguez, Jr., offers a comprehensive introduction to the techniques and rituals of casting, including:How to become grounded and centered before one beginsThe proper timing for casting and ritual workHow to open up one’s psychic senses to work with subtle energiesHow to set the stage for magickal work both internally and externallyProtection, symbols, and meditations for maintaining sacred spaceThe Circle, the Quarters, and other modes of casting sacred spaceQuartering, energy work, and many cross-practice connections including Qabala and chakras.

This is a practical, accessible handbook for the beginner with cross appeal to seasoned practitioners of ritual magick.

Yule

Yule, (pronounced EWE-elle) is when the dark half of the year relinquishes to the light half. Starting the next morning at sunrise, the sun climbs just a little higher and stays a little longer in the sky each day. Known as Solstice Night, or the longest night of the year, the sun’s “rebirth” was celebrated with much joy. On this night, our ancestors celebrated the rebirth of the Oak King, the Sun King, the Giver of Life that warmed the frozen Earth. From this day forward, the days would become longer.
