The Elements

Photobucket


The elements are major players in magick. The type of magick most of us use is natural magick and this involves the elements in one way or another. We call upon the elements to safe guard our magick circles and to send their energies to our workings. Each of the elements offers something unique and special.

Read below for information on the elements and correspondence for them.
