Ritual Correspondence


The Directions


Associated elements, colors, spirits, animals, stones and energy for spell craft


When beginning a ritual or spell with the calling of the directions you must call the east before the west. This is the sunrise turn because it follows the natural way of the sun in the heavens. When performing a spell while stirring a cauldron it is recommended you stir clockwise. The only time you would "widdershin" is when you want to perform darker magick.

Widdershin


The direction opposite to the path of the sun in the sky. Anti- clockwise movements are used for performing darker spells. This movement is anti-clockwise and used for darker spells because it goes against the natural way of doing things. Reciting chants backwards, walking in anti-clockwise around a circle, etc. is Widdershins.
