Writing Elemental Spells


I find that reading a list; ordered, unordered
or definition list is boring. Unfortunately, that is
about the only way to present this information. I
have copied the below list of Celtic Goddesses and
Gods directly from my personal Book of Shadows to
give you an idea of the number of Deities you can
invoke for your spell craft.

You are going to decide which element your spell
is related to. Then choose which Deity is best suited
to your purpose. At the beginning of your spell, (when
you open your circle,) you will invoke that Deity and
ask for their assistance and protection throughout.

As I said, these are Celtic Goddesses and Gods
simply because I follow the Celtic tradition. If you
prefer the Egyptian, Native American or Aboriginal
traditions then you can invoke those Deities. You would
just look up the Deity that is associated with the
purpose that you have in mind for your spell.

Air Deities — East

**Air represents mental activity, thoughts,
reason and intellect, memory, knowledge, persuasion,
birth and friendship, freedom, clarification and
expression.The feelings of moist heat are associated
with Air, it’s season is Spring, it’s direction is
East. Symbolized by the Wand, Athame, or the smoke
of your incense. Represented by the colors White,
Lt Blues, Yellows and Green. Your spells should be cast
during the first quarter Moon phase and at Dawn.

Visualization is an important tool in any magick
work, it makes the events happen. For this type, it
is important that all the other factors such as color,
time, the moon phase, winds, etc. are all in balance.
You should be certain to use the other tools, such as
incense and candle burning or even the tea or wine
that you drink in the correct manner. This is because you
need to “repair” or “ground” the images or ideas you are
using in your visualization.**

Earth Deities — North

**The Element of Earth is the provider of all our
needs. She represents sensations, decay, patience,
stability, strength, health, warmth and comfort, animals
and animal instincts, farming and physical labor. Her
feeling is dry and cold, and season is Winter. Represented
by the colors brown, black, purples and some greens.
Symbolized by the Pentacle or rice, salt and grains in a
brass or terra cotta bowl, you may also use a stone.
Moon phase is the fourth quarter and its favored time
is Midnight.

Earth Magick can involve the use of herbs and plants.
Using the correct herb to attain your desire along with
the other tools can be very effective. Burying something
and making some offerings to the Earth such as planting
trees is a form of Earth Magick. Using your gems or
crystals and burying them in the Earth under the appropriate
tree while making your wish is also effective.**

Water Deities — West

**Water is the symbol of our emotions. It
encompasses our intuition, fertility, the womb, health,
beauty and divination. Its feelings are cold moisture,
the season it represents is Fall, the direction is
West. It is represented by the colors blue, light
grays, sea greens and whites. Water is symbolized by
the cup or chalice. The Moon phase is the Full Moon
and its time is Dusk.

Water magick is especially good for love spells
and when you need to clarify your own emotions. This
type of magick can give you insights into others
that may be ill and to find the truth within yourself.
Be careful when using this type also; if there is an
intent of maliciousness or control of another, all
you will get is a reflection back into yourself.**

It is symbolized by the Athame/Sword, Candle and the Burner.
It’s representative colors are Reds, Oranges and Golds. The

conditions at work and home, awaken subtle powers and aid
in attraction desires.**
