I'll draw a Circle round times three

The Magician's Rules
Here are the four precepts to magickal working:
1. To Know: This does not just mean knowing the methods, correspondances, ways of raising power and directing intent. It also means to know yourself, what you intend and what you might, subconsciously intend. For not truly understanding your inner feelings and motivations, may affect your magick.
2. To Dare: You must not only be prepared to do this thing, but you must know that it will happen. You must also be prepared to take this step confidently. Everything you do has the possibility of going wrong or misfiring. So do you dare? Any doubts, don't do it!
3. To Will: "Will" is again not just hoping, or wishing, it is using your will-power, your personal energy, to actually force it into being. Imagine the person you most love about to come to harm - the 'will' you put into your magick should be as strong as the 'no' you would scream.
4. To Keep Silent: Probably the hardest of all, this means exactly what it says: keep silent. Consider this: when you are upset, your talk to your friends, and your upset begins to subside. In magic the same is true - as your feelings fade the more you talk about it, so does the energy put in. Moreover, the more people you tell, the more likely you are find someone who has doubts about your spell, which will dilute your energy flow.
"Witchcraft is not about gaining power,
it's about knowing when and how to use it."
