Term: Doorway

An entrance cut into a Magickal Circle after it has been completed. Commonly done by using one or two knives to visually “cut” a door through the circle so that someone can enter or leave the circle without destroying the integrity of the circle. The purpose of cutting a doorway may be designed into a ritual or to deal with an emergency. Traditionally, the doorway is cut in the northeast of the circle, but groups will cut it anywhere.
