Why do witches cast a circle? Is it necessary?

Answer

Witches cast circles to provide a sort of ceremonial 'safe space' in which to perform a ritual, or work with energy, or simply to celebrate the Full Moon (for example). Casting then dismissing the circle marks the beginning and end of the ritual.

While not necessary, casting circles is really lovely and magical to do - try it!
