great question. sorry about the delay in my response.

the circle is often used by Solomonic and other magicians to protect
the evoker from the energies she sends into some receptable, such as
a nearby triangle, or some other entity or geometric form. symbolically
it represents transcendental and 'higher' energies. one can often see
in elemental symbolism the more circular shapes associated with 'ether'
or 'spirit' rather than any of the other elements which it is described
as transcending.

the square is traditionally associated with earth-energies, with whom
I associate demons. I intended the ritual to be an invitation and
welcoming of the demon in question, and therefore drew a container
or target which I thought the demon would enjoy.

I prefer invocation, but otherwise me too!

so you believe that talking about a ritual beforehand somehow
affects its power or success?

blessed beast! (nagasiva)
