The Binding Ceremony

Incantation: Fire, earth, metal, air, water and blood. By these elements we bind the circle and follow in the steps of our ancestors who pledged themselves to fight against the forces of darkness. When evil assails us, when fear weakens us, when dissent threatens us, in the circle we will find our power. We come to this place alone, but leave bound as one. With this oath, our journey begins together.

  • This Binding Ceremony binds the powers of the witches in a Circle, somewhat concentrating the magic, although each member of the circle is left without being able to use magic by themselves.
  • In the episode Bound, The Circle goes to the beach at midnight and Diana performs the Binding Ceremony with a Bonfire.
