Elements / Spells

Invoking Earth

Traditionally the direction of this Element is
north and the colour normally associated with
Earth is green. It is represented on the altar
usually by salt or sand. Crystals, because they
are totally natural substances, can also be used.

When invoking Earth and the powers of the
north, you are looking for recovery and healing
and perhaps trying to find answers to questions.
These powers deal with gaining knowledge,
blessing, creating and shielding. When working
within a magical circle, this is the first corner or
quarter on which you call for protection.

The principal nature spirits of the Earth are
called gnomes. They are said to live
underground and guard the earth’s treasures.
Other groups within the earth’s nature spirits
ruled by the god Pan are brownies, dryads,
Earth spirits, elves and satyrs.
