Circle of Three #10: Making the Saint
by Isobel Bird

p.147 She had Becka sit on one side of the central candle and she sat on the other. She took matches and lit the first candle. "Flame of the East," she said. "Spirit of air. Burn brightly in our circle." Then she lit the second, saying, "Flame of the South, spirit of fire. Burn brightly in our circle." The third and fourth candles, symbolizing the flames of the North and the West, were then lit with similar incantations invoking the spirits of water and earth. Then Annie lit the central candle. As she did she said, "Flame of the center, spirit of healing. Burn brightly in our circle."
