Format: Paperback
'The Circle, Cubed' is a detailed, complete lesson in how to cast a Wiccan circle [MacMorgan, like Buckland, uses the phrase 'erecting the temple'] beyond the four candle, salt and knife version found in most Wiccan how-do books. For practical purposes, the components of the circle are broken into five parts: energetic, spiritual, physical, mental, and traditional. The book does not purport to teach the first of these dimensions, saying that this can instead be learned by practice, or by circling with others. Instead the focus is on the other four dimensions.

To those familiar with MacMorgan's other works, this book follows a distinctive pattern- focusing on WHY the ritual is done the way it is done instead of teaching how to do it. The how is there, and the author regularly cites some common rituals to give examples of the why intersecting with the how. In addition, a small selection of rituals (including reprints of the Arising Coven circle, The Gardnerian circle and the Ritual of the Compass Rose) are provided as lessons in their own right.

Although casting the circle is very much a beginner's lesson, this book cannot be called a beginner's book as it regularly expects the reader to understand the circle at a deeper level than most beginners do, and regularly plays with concepts beginners may not be prepared to play with.

In addition to the elemental tetragram, there are three-point circles, focusing on land, sea and sky, non-elemental circles, pentagrams and, of course, the previously published octogram.

Kaatryn MacMorgan-Douglas has some great ideas. Casting in the Compass Rose way didn't really resonate with me. Still glad I bought the book thou.
