Calling in the Elemental Powers

Facing your altar, and the North direction, stretch your arms toward the sky. Merge with the Earth element, and say:
“Guardians of the North march,
Generous powers of Earth,
Protect the gate of the North ward,
And guard this circle and all within.
Come, I summon you!”

Now turn and face the East and stretch your arms toward the sky. Merge with the Air element, and say:
“Guardians of the East march,
Generous powers of Air,
Protect the gate of the East ward,
And guard this circle and all within.
Come, I summon you!”

Then face the South, stretching your arms toward the sky. Merge with the Fire element, and say:
“Guardians of the South march,
Generous powers of Fire,
Protect the gate of the South ward,
And guard this circle and all within.
Come, I summon you!”

Then face the West, and stretch your arms upward. Merging with the powers of Water, say:
“Guardians of the West march,
Generous powers of Water,
Protect the gate of the West ward,
And guard this circle and all within.
Come, I summon you!”

Now stand in the center of your magick circle, face your altar, and say:
“Guardian spirits of Earth, Air, Fire, and Water
Grant me your power and protection tonight!”

The elemental powers are now set in place.
