Term: Circumambulate

DEFINITION:
To walk in a circle. In temples of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, this was a clockwise circling of the temple. It was said to represent the rise of Light. In the Golden Dawn’s inner order, the circumambulation of the temple by initiates would create energy in the form of a cone or vortex. This may be the source of the Pagan/Wiccan concept of a “Cone of Power,” although the influence may have gone the other way. A reverse circumambulation, going anti-clockwise, was symbolic of the fading Light.
