Worship and magic both are done in what are called Magical Circles. The purpose of a circle is to separate the people within it from the outside world. They are outside of time and space. Time passes differently inside a circle, and it tends to be warmer inside than outside.
Each Circle is divided into four Quarters. Each Quarter faces a direction. Each Quarter also corresponds to a time of day, a state of being, a season, etc. This is a table of those correspondences.
