CREATING A FAERY RING
To attract faeries and other magickal beings to your door,
you can create your own version of a Faery Ring by drawing a
circle in the dirt where you want your Ring to be. The circle
can be as big (a large meadow) or small (a flowerpot) as you
want or have space for, depending on your needs and
After you have drawn out the Ring, gather together
enough stones to line the parameter of your magickal Faery
Ring. One by one, set the stones on the outline of the Ring so
they all touch together. Take your time when doing this,
fitting the stones together while thinking about the ring you
are creating and its purpose.
Once you are done outlining the circular ring with stones,
sit or stand back for a few minutes. Now in your mind’s
eye, imagine a thread of bright white light energetically
connecting the stones together. Imagine light weaving the
stones together in a clockwise motion, around and around
the circle at least seven times.
As a finishing touch, plant flowers and herbs that attract
the faeries in and around the Ring. Select your favorites
and the faeries will be pleased. Faeries and other helpful
magickal beings are attracted to all beautiful things connected
with the living spirit of Nature.
Optimally, your Faery Ring should reflect the passing
of the seasons. For example, plant some narcissus, which
bloom in early spring, and perhaps some daffodils, tulips,
irises, all of which bloom shortly thereafter. Add a few
daisies or annuals, and a rose bush or three or seven (miniature
roses are great in Faery Ring flower pots). These plants
keep on blooming until autumn, and in some milder climates,
they bloom continuously. Be sure to snip all spent
blooms back, and water the plants regularly.
Creating a Faery Ring is one of the simple and enjoyable
ways in which you can get in touch with Nature, and
in turn, the magickal energy of the faery. The next section
further explores the ways in which you can work with
Nature to bring the energy of the faeries into your life in
order to do magick. Being magickal themselves, they bring a
potent power into your overall life patterns and your personal
goals, which define who and what you are and what
you like, dislike, dream about, value, do, and accomplish.
CREATING THE FAERY MAGIC CIRCLE
The Faery Magick Circle protects you from harmful
energies when doing magick. It acts as a vortex of light,
bridging the mortal and faery worlds. Each time you do
magick, you create the magick Circle. First, sprinkle water
from your cup clockwise all around the inside of the Faery
Ring to purify the area. Then hold your athame or wand
in your power hand with the point outward, face in the
direction North of your Faery Ring, and slowly spin in a
clockwise circle. As you do this imagine a blue-white light
shooting out of its tip. Trace a clockwise circle of light
with your athame over the Faery Ring you have created.
You are basically drawing a double circle. Next, face the
altar, and say:
“I consecrate this Circle of power
To the generous and helpful faeries
Of Earth, Air, Fire, and Water.
May they bless this circle with their presence.
So be it! Blessed be!”
Consecrating Your Faery Magick Tools
To consecrate means to make sacred and divine. By consecrating
your tools, you imbue them with divine blessings
and power. Consecrate your Faery Magick tools outdoors (if
possible) at dawn, noon, twilight, or midnight. I have found
that dawn and twilight work best for this purpose because
these are the times when I usually encounter faeries.
Before consecrating your tools, smudge them with cedar
and sage smudge to get rid of any unwanted energies. Then,
consecrate each tool individually by blessing it with the Elements
of Earth (soil), Air (incense), Fire (flame), Water
(water), and Spirit (scented oil) in that order. Put the Elements
on the tool. For example, rub clean soil on your cup,
pass it through the incense smoke, the flame of the candle
(swiftly), dip it in or sprinkle it with water, and then rub it
three times with scented oil. As you apply each Elemental
“With this Element,
I consecrate this tool to the helpful faeries.
So be it! Blessed be!”
Next, present the tool to the directions of North, East,
South, West, and center, in that order. Now face the altar,
“I charge this tool by the Ancient Ones,
By the divine powers and blessings of the helpful faeries,
By the powers of the sun, moon, planets, and stars,
By the powers of Earth, Air, Fire, Water, and Spirit
I consecrate this magickal tool.
May it serve me well.
So be it! Blessed be!”
Now hold the tool in your hand and imagine the helpful
faeries. Merge with the faery energy and use your deep
breathing and intention to move that image and power into
the tool. Your Faery Magick tool is now ready to use.
CUTTING THE ENERGY DOOR
After you set the faery guardians in place, cut an
energetic doorway from which you can enter and exit the
Circle without disrupting its magickal energy. Traditionally this
is done just below the Eastern most point of your Circle, but for
practical purposes you can also cut the doorway at the actual
doorway in the room. Use your athame to cut the doorway by
tracing a doorway with it. Each time you exit and re-enter your
Circle, open and close the doorway with a sweeping motion of
PULLING UP THE FAERY MAGICK CIRCLE AND RING
Once you have bidden farewell to the faery guardians,
it is time to pull up the magick Circle and Faery Ring. Do
so by holding your athame or wand in your power hand,
face North, and slowly turn in a counterclockwise circle. As
you do this, imagine the blue-white light of the Circle being
drawn back up into your athame or wand. Then scatter the
flowers in the ring to and fro, and erase the mark of the
ring with your shoe, foot, or besom. Do this in a counterclockwise
motion. Lastly, ring the bell once, and say:
“The Circle is open, but ever unbroken.
May peace and love fill our hearts.
Merry meet, merry part, and merry meet again!
Now clap your hands three times. It is done.
