The Elements In Magick
The Elements In Magick
The elements play a major role in the path of the witch; the elements not only relate to the magick we cast, but also within the witch herself (I say herself but a witch can be a male). Each element rules over different aspects of ourselves. Earth is our body our physical selves, how stable and grounded we are. Air is our minds how quick we think on our feet; how we see the world around us. Water is our emotions it influences our spiritual connection to others. Fire is our inner drive; it that spark our inner passion that drives us forward to make our mark on the world.
What i've done here is shared different types of spells that can be done with each element along with the spell vehicles, or what our main way of casting a spell could be with each element.
In these spells, with the main focus being that of water, we may take a bath or do washing where we cleanse our house. Maybe we will float a secret message in a bottle or on a leaf down a river or stream. These can also be spells where we go to the ocean or river and send our magickal intention out that way. These spells can be slow but more on the emotional side.

Earth spells are great for dealing with the mundane issues in life such as the home life, and all things related as such. What does this planet earth mean to you? What areas of influence do you think these spells encompass? These types of spells are slow but lasting.

Fire is the ultimate element to use for spells that need to have an extra umph of energy fast. These spells tend to be the ones to manifest the fastest but each spell has it’s own internal time line for manifestation. These spells are hot n spicy, and leave you in awe at the end. It is no wonder that most beginners use candle magick in the beginning.
