Air Magick

Ok! Let’s talk about Air Magick!
I love love love the element of Air. When I was little, that was the first element that called to me. I spent so much time outside, listening to the wind, watching the trees dance from it. And even found peace and nurturing wisdom while I was down. Over time, I learned how to call to each direction. Finding each one delivering a different need and advice.

I found the North wind to hold many memories of the past, and connects to others who are far across. The North wind is powerful and ancient, and takes promises seriously. From that, I developed magicks based on

  • Message Spells
  • Oath Spells
  • Past Life Spells
  • Initiation Spells
  • Memory Spells
  • Growth Spells
  • Wisdom

The East wind was a tremendous help during my years of magickal discovery. Taught me focus and meditation. And whenever I went into the astral world, I found myself always facing East. From this I learned to connect to my intuition naturally. Which then developed

  • Psychic Spells
  • Astral Travel
  • Spirit Contact
  • Mental Spells
  • Manifesting Spells
  • Travel
  • Knowledge Spells

The South wind has always felt like a challenger to face. It summons courage and demands respect. Almost like facing a warrior that assesses your strength and vulnerabilities. Expecting you to search for your inner power. With this powerful wind, I found

  • Self Power Spells
  • Heightened Power Spells
  • Courage Spells
  • Road Opener Spells
  • Success
  • Commanding Spells
  • Lover Spells
  • Breaking a Habit

The West wind has always been a friend and ally for me. Having been helped by it on more than one occasion, my heart has always been opened to it. That is why, it is the wind of the heart and has inspired spells related to such matters.

  • Healing Spells
  • Love Spells
  • Peace Spells
  • Happiness Spells
  • Truth Spells
  • Purification Spells

And so much more to discover as you work and meditate with each wind.
Now each wind has a God/Lord assigned to each. Through many cultures, they have been called numerous names. I personally use their Greek names. Something about them had called to me. They are called

The Anemoi

Boreas – Who is of the North Wind Special Offerings: Stone Piles
Formally called on high peaks.

Eurus – Who is of the East Wind Special Offerings: Incense of Sage & Bay
Formally called in open valleys/meadows.

Notus – Who is of the South Wind Special Offerings: Bonfire or Flame
Formally called in dry sunny areas.

Zephyrus – Who is of the West Wind Special Offerings: Libations
Formally called by ocean waters.

And Aeolus is the God of Air and the Winds all together.

Special Offerings: An altar dedicated to him with all elements from above. Call to him on an area that incorporates all winds. Somewhere high where they can meet.
Of course, they can still be called in a pinch, from wherever you are, but your intentions must be loud and clear. And if your offering is special, all the better.

Now, let’s discuss how we invoke the wind. A breeze.
There are many different methods. You’d be surprise by how much others had created in order to summon the wind.
In fact, I’m sure everyone has tried a different way.
I will cover two of my own wind calling spells here, and other spells that I’ve seen and tried.

SPELL 1

I created this when I was young was easier for me at that time to do when I was outside. I would draw in the ground the symbol of air, and a rune within it. Come to find out later in life, that it was the Dagaz symbol for dawn. And call the wind for a heavy breeze. After practicing this for a while, I found that over time I no longer needed to draw the symbol in the ground, but easily visualized it in my mind’s eye, and then would call out to the wind. As a child I didn’t formally call to it, only spoke to it in a friendly manner. But when I grew older, I started to chant out in either ancient Norse (Icelandic) or in Latin. This is what I would say in order to call the wind to rise.

“Vindur Haekkun”

SPELL 2

When I wished for not only wind, but clouds, and even rain. A good gloomy day really. And that was braiding my hair. I use to braid my hair and imagine the weather I wanted. I would do this until I was done. I’d keep my hair braided for the day. And either when night came or morning, I unbraided it. Visualizing the magick/wind releasing. I often got good results from this, and ended up giddy. Lol

Other spells I’ve seen had often used tools or herbs.

SPELL 3

One was using a broom. Sometimes being specifically made and enchanted to call the winds. This broom would be thrown in the air. Preferably on a hill, to summon the winds. And then being burned to stop them, or to stop a bad storm. Then buried in the ground.

SPELL 4

Another was using grains of paradise (an herb), and tossing it to each direction to call for favorable winds. The same can be done with rice even. And wishes can be made the same time. But that’s not good for the birds.

SPELL 5

The last spell I’ve seen for this, is actually quite nifty and enjoyed testing it. It had called for a naturally made clay jar with a cork. Preferably one that was made by you, but its not needed. Still worked for me. Then a wind symbol was drawn on it, or in my case, I simply painted the words WIND on it. On a windy day, go outside, and open the jar. And as soon as the wind stops blowing, cork the jar. On a different day, when wind is needed, go outside, and open the jar. A wind should pick up after doing so. This was amazing to test and do. Sadly, my jar had fallen over and broke surprisingly. And I never went and got a new one. But this is recommended to try!

That’s what I got so far. So go ahead and practice with these! And if you have anything similar, please share!

Enjoy trying some awesome Air Magick!

The First Spell

The Spirit of Flight. The Spirit of Flight, the force responsible for the powers of movement of the wind and air, has gathered  around her all the flying things she loves. Birds, insects, flying fish, swirling leaves, seeds of  dandelions and sycamore trees, butterflies and fairies all dance around her in a grand array of wild  free motion.:

Today was a day of remembrance. I found myself outside on a beautiful sunny-windy day. Gazing up to the sky, feeling the wind against my skin, reminded me of when I was little and had done my first spell. I smiled to myself, recalling the sweet innocence of magick when I was young. I had little knowledge of the craft but I knew in my heart, despite not knowing the correct term for it, magick was all around.

It was fascinating how magical occasions would arise. For example, whenever I would wish for something with all my might, it would occur, and there I was staring wide-eyed amazed that it had happened. This was especially during a time when my parents would explain how magick wasn’t real. But I had refused to believe that. If that was the truth, then how was it that wishes would come to be every time I truly desired them? It was after this questioning that I remembered I longed for answers.

One day, after a particular disagreement with my parents, I had gone outside. I rested on a swing, fuming with sadness and confusion. I remember feeling utterly alone and misunderstood. It was overwhelming and I admittedly began to cry. Not long after tears were falling that I had suddenly found myself feeling not alone. I will never forget this; it was the first time I ever felt a divine presence. Immediately I was soothed by a comforting light within my heart.

Sweetly, I had asked, “Are you there?”

The wind blew. To clarify, this was a hot dry day. There was no breeze when I was outside until this moment.

Once I felt this breeze, my soul had trembled. There was no denying that I knew something, or someone was listening. Again, I asked, “Are you here to help me?”

Another strong wind. With this, I felt a feminine energy, and a feeling of peace consumed me. I rose from the swing bench and stared up into the sky. “What should I do?”

The answer that came then is truly difficult to describe. All I knew was I had to raise my hands to the sky, and call out. I called for the wind. I don’t know what it was, but I just needed a cool breeze. Needed something to soothe the ache. My request was granted by a wonderful gust of wind, and I remember the unbelievable cleanse that consumed me.It had rushed into my lungs. Chills shot through out my body, and for a moment I felt whole.

Thinking back, I now know I had casted a spell for a purification. A wind spell. And the Goddess had shown me how to do it. Ever so grateful for how I felt, I was a believer after that day. Nothing anyone would say, friends, parents, strangers, had ever shaken that belief. After that, I found myself doing a lot of wind spells. That was my element of choice. That is until I found books to help teach me how to cast with other elements. Every time I had done an element spell, I felt closer to the Goddess, and found where I belonged.

I suppose today, as the wind caressed my face, it casted its own memory spell over me. The beautiful sister wind showing me where my path had begun. To this day, I am so grateful. Grateful to the gifts the Goddess has given me.
