Do you cast a circle for ritual?

Obviously if you don't do religious rituals this question isn't for you - please skip!

I do not cast a circle before preforming Rituals, I have always tended to see that as more of a "Wiccan" practice... But I was wondering about the rest of you... What do you think? And what do you do?

  • Sometimes I do, but usually I don't. The only time I do is for a little extra "comfort" (I can't think of a word that accurately describes it) when I'm doing something totally new, or if I'm doing something really important to me (like my dedication type rituals and things like that).

  • I almost never do

  • Kind of. I draw the shape of the pentacle in the air over my altar, but only for spells. Not for baby blessings or crossing over rituals. I don't "call the quarters" or anything like that.

  • Only for healing rituals and deep meditations...
    For any type of spell work I don't... my home is my circle and it feels safe to me
    so I don't have to cast one all the time...

  • Depends on if we are doing a more formal sabbat type ritual or something simple. When we do more formal rituals then yes, we cast a circle.

  • I don't... I also think of it as more of a Wiccan thing. I feel restricted by the circle.
