Elemental Energies in Magick – Air
Symbolizes and controls the forces of conscious mental processes, communication, ideas and all other non-physical forces that seem to have no substance. Air does have substance, of course, it just operates in a way that is unlike the physical substances that we are so used to. Air can be a very powerful force as the crushing winds of a hurricane or an idea that can change the entire world. The element of Air can be represented through the color yellow or whatever other color suits you mental picture of this type of energy. Mental Magick is especially successful when performed under the supervision and assistance of Air Elementals or Sylphs ruled by the spirit of the East Wind, Michael.
Elemental Energies in Magick – Fire
Symbolizes and controls the forces of fast kinetic energy (as opposed to the slow dormant energy of Earth) that activates quickly and with little control over itself. Fire Elementals are best invoked to create fast or intense change that requires great (though not necessarily long lasting) energy. For example, Fire is the best element to invoke for protection, purification and defense. These actions usually need high energy to be set in motion, but once they are present they do not require additional energy to maintain themselves. Many colors can represent the element of Fire, but the colors red, orange and yellow are the most common. Use what feels the most right for you. Spirit Magick though spirit calling, invocation, necromancy and sorcery is especially successful when performed under the supervision and assistance of Fire Elementals or Salamanders ruled by the spirit of the South Wind, Ariel.
