The only thing I can think of regarding the Buckland shoulder thing is that a person starts in the centre, facing W with their right hand pointing to N, then one turns on the centre spot so you can better see the circle you have cast...but then I wonder if he starts at N.
Another possibility you've raised is casting circles from the outside. So maybe when one only needs/has a small area to work in, one could put objects on the table for instance and cast a circle around them.
Where's the maybe? Work with what you have yes?.
Going back to your other posts you've also brought up something I was going to get to later on - "the rest of the rigmarole I usually include in a circle casting - Calling/welcoming the quarters in some way - and if specifically needed, invoking a Deity."
So maybe let's find out some more...
Do people use a script they've learnt from a HP or book?
Or make up their own?
I use my own when alone, and some bits I've found I really like out of books (they're all short - I don't like to go on forever, and I like to be able to easily remember things).
In a group I would use whatever format the group has agreed on.
Here's a circle casting I like that I sometimes use:
"Black spirits and white, red spirits and grey, harken to this rune I say.
I conjure this circle of power, that it be the interface between Gods and Men.
Great ones, spirits of the hour, forge it with protective power"
(I modified it a bit and I can't remember what book I got it from).
Here's the beginning of my quarter call:
"Earth of the North, Deep rifts of the Savannah, Mountains of the sun & moon.
Guardians of strength I call you here, Empower my circle with endurance..."
and so on.
N.B. If I am being "structurally correct" (on my own I don't follow a full structure most of the time. I do it when I have a specific theme/ritual), or were directing a group...
I would follow:
Set up the room, ground by visualisation/chant, align/empower by visualisation/chant.
The objects on the Altar, then the space and aura with LBRP (modified Morningstar version) or incense, sound,
3) Cast the circle.
4) Call the quarters.
5) Invoke the Deity.
1) Banish the Deity.
2) Banish the quarters.
3) Unwind the circle.
What deities/godesses/gods/angels/elementals/other are people calling? (And to which points?)
For specific themes this differs - as I'm eclectic.
My 'default' for the quarters are as above, speaking to the elements in the landscape/nature.
My 'default' Deity, which I call after the quarters, and who would have a representative object on the Altar if there was one - is my patron Nun/Naunet (from the Egyptian Ogdoad - Deity of primordial chaos), and I have my own chant to address hir (Androgynous).
Wicca groups will usually use a polar duo - male and female. Depends on the group and their "tradition".
A great little book I can recommend for constructing Deity invokations is:
'The Gods Within' by Jean Williams and Zachary Cox. It's pocket sized and after I read it - I always know how to construct a formal Deity address. Lol. (Jean passed away this last Christmas 2015 - on Christmas day).
And a lovely book I can recommend for a Wiccan practice overview, which is modern eclectic or "progressive", so not Alexandrian/Gardinarian, is:
'Magic Without Peers' by Ariadne Rainbird and David Rankine.
Do people using Hebrew worry about the pronunciation?
I have no idea how to pronounce Hebrew and no idea how to use it - so no, I wouldn't.
I believe one should understand what one is saying in order to put intent/meaning behind the words. If I were desperate to use Hebrew - I'd visit my Jewish friend in NW London and ask him to tutor me on the specific text (and luckily he'd be happy to oblige).
And I would imagine that originally - when other languages were used, the users were scholars of those languages, and so knew what they were saying...
I may and do, use short phrases from Latin, Italian, and even old Egyptian (and no-one knows how to pronounce that now.) - if I'm sure what the phrase means. Italian I'm familiar with, as that's my mother's mother tongue. Latin, I can usually look up or find someone to help.
