This month, I’m looking more closely at the element of Air. Air is one of the four classical elements, which also includes Earth, Water and Fire. A fifth element, Spirit or Akasha, is also sometimes included – and can represent the five points on the Pentacle.
Air represents the mind and intelligence, knowledge, communication, inspiration, imagination, intuition, illumination, ideas, freedom, clarity, telepathy, psychic powers, dreams and wishes, travel, finding lost things, ability to know & understand, brainstorming, and new beginnings.
Air symbols include the sky, wind, clouds, vibrations, smoke, feathers, plants, trees, flowers. Types of magic using Air energies include divination, concentration, visualization, wind magick, feather magick, prophecy, and karma work. Air related rituals include playing a flute or wind instrument, tossing objects in the wind, burning incense & aromatherapy, hanging objects in trees/high places.
