Lighting Candles with Magick

The past few years I have been working with the elements of Fire, Earth, Air and Water to heal and balance my personal energy. This after I learned to read astrology charts four years ago and discovered I had virtually no Fire or Water in my chart. We need all four to function properly.

Each of these gives us a different quality or skill. Fire gives us confidence, ambition and creativity. Water is all about intuition, emotions and personal relationships. Air is about communication skills, thought processes, thinking skills and how we see things. Earth makes us practical, grounded and materialistic; it relates to both spiritual and physical wealth and how we experience it.

Healing Tip! Lighting a candle activates all four if we do it consciously! Ground yourself first by sending your attention into the Earth and shield yourself with violet light 😉 



When I mention that I have little Water in my chart people are surprised (2 of 10 planets and luminaries). My saving grace is Mercury in Pisces - the planet of the mind in a highly imaginative, intuitive and empathic Water sign. Nevertheless, I did have to put in a lot of work to connect with my emotions and intuition. It took a year of weekly classes at The College of Psychic Studies to get to the point where I felt relaxed. Now that I am teaching, I find most of my students are quicker to access their intuition. Having looked at some of their charts, natal astrology explains it.

Which brings me to the other Element that is underrepresented in my chart - Fire! Without Fire, our enjoyment levels go down and the motivation that keeps us going disappears. It also gives us ambition, confidence and belief in ourselves. One of my tarot students put it perfectly, using exercise as a metaphor. We all know it is healthy to go to the gym or to work out. If you find a work-out that you love, time flies and before you know it an hour has gone by. With other workouts, we might give up after 10 or 15 minutes. This definitely rings true for me - spinning classes fly by and an hour is gone before I know it, but after 15 minutes on the elliptical I am bored silly. 

The past few years I have gone out of my way to channel Fire and Water in Energy Healing sessions. The intention is for the archetypal energy to become part of me so that I can rely on it in my daily life. There are many ways to go about it. The easiest has been to call on the Archangels that govern the Element that we are missing - Michael for Fire, Gabriel for Water, Uriel for Earth and Raphael for Air. Another option is to meditate with the Moon as it travels through the Zodiac. I have been connecting with the Moon in Scorpio to dial-up both Fire and Water. Scorpio is a Water sign, but it is ruled by Mars, the planet of ambition, war and sports. People with lots of Scorpio energy tend to have tons of intuition, fire and power in their lives. It is pretty intense though and grounding and healing ourselves is incredibly important (true for any star sign).

Lastly, we can program crystals with lunar energy and take them with us. If you'd like to know more check out Chakra Healing & Magick as it lays the groundwork for this fun stuff - details below!

The Elements Are Magickal Too

Six months ago I signed up for a class where we learned to channel the purifying and healing qualities of archetypal fire. It is a Reiki class so the energy flows from your hands and it is so intense. I had always had strong sensations with energy healing but with this new Reiki, I sometimes feel like a character in a Marvel movie =) 

Last week I tried to light a candle but it would barely take. Then the symbol that we use to activate Reiki Fire flashed through my mind and I intended for it to go to the candle. It lit up!!! I was so excited - it's the witchiest thing I have ever done. Then this week we were talking about the Elements in class, and when I mentioned Fire the students gasped and pointed at the candle in the room. I didn't see it, but apparently, the flame lit up when I mentioned Fire. 

A Meditation to Get You Started. 

Below is a meditation to connect with Water. If you'd like to know more, check out Chakra Healing & Magick. It covers energy healing and we also look at the elements from a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual view - through the Aura. The tools in that book lay the groundwork for healing with astrology, which I will be covering on this blog in 2020. Stay tuned! 




Hope you enjoyed this! Working with the Elements has been life changing. I love how it also relates to Tarot - we can use the images on the cards to heal ourselves as much as anything else. 

Healing with tarot symbolism is one of the themes in Chakra Healing & Magick - essentially how to heal yourself with crystals based on the cards that you are drawn to on a particular day.
