Working the Magick of Air, Fire, Water & Earth in the Western Mystery Tradition|
Practical Elemental Magick - Working the Magick of the Four Elements of Air Fire Water & Earth
Author: David Rankine and Sorita d'Este
Category: Natural Magick Level: Intermediate
�The four elements of Air, Fire, Water and Earth exist as
spiritual essences, as philosophical concepts,
as energy states and as a tangible physical reality. �
Working magick with the elements helps to connect us to the tangibly present natural powers in our physical world, whilst at the same time we are returning to the building blocks of magick by rooting our feet in the
material world. Since Empedocles formalized the system in ancient Greece in the 5th century BCE, the four elements have become an integral part of the Western Esoteric Tradition - passing from ancient Greek magick, through the Qabalah, & Grimoire Traditions into modern derivative traditions of ceremonial magick and paganism.
In Practical Elemental Magick the authors provide an unprecedented combination of research and techniques for working the magick of Air, Fire, Water and Earth, as well as the spiritual creatures associated with each. The Elemental Gods, Archangels, rulers and other types of elemental beings (including Sylphs, Salamanders, Undines & Gnomes) are discussed and explored. Both the spiritual and physical aspects of the four elements are considered, together with how they interact with each other and their appropriate use for magickal work.
The creation and use of Elementaries (Elemental Thought Forms) ; Elemental Tools, the Elemental Tides and correspondences are all considered in detail, together with previously unavailable original ritual & meditative material including the Unification Rite, the Inner Talisman, the Elemental Pyramids, the Elemental Magick Circle & the Elemental Temples. In mastering the four elements within & without we master ourselves, bringing the external forces of the natural world & the internal forces of our existence into harmony.
Author's Notes: About the Authors::
Sorita d�Este and David Rankine are students and practitioners of the Western Esoteric Tradition who live and work somewhere near the borders of Wales and England (UK) . Upon their first meeting in Atlantis Bookshop they had a long debate about incenses and when they finally �got it together� more than a year later they still found themselves debating some intricate matter related to something magickal, political, historical or religious and happily are still continuing their debate to this day. In late 2000 they founded their first Wiccan training circle together in Chiswick (West London) , this group would develop into what is today the StarStone Network, a network of covens (Alexandrian lineaged) and groups focused on creating a community of peers.
