dedicate this book to the sister of our blood, to the sister
of our magic, to our faerie sister, Gail Avrill.
thanks to Nikolay Lyapanenko for his review on Goodreads:
Great, useful book!
This book is very unique and helpful and should be on the shelf
of every magician, who works with the spirits.
This book describes a completely new theme in magick or long
forgotten theme in past, with many additions!
It is about the interrelation of the two grand sciences -- Magick
Based on known Periodic Table of the Elements in Chemistry,
the authors perceive each element as a special spirit that can
be called for assistance and support in life!
from Kristine on Goodreads:
"I love the mix of science and mythology in this book.
It is full of wonderful wealth of information and news ways
to view and do things. It is definitely a unique, fun and extremely
well researched novel that blends science with magic flawlessly.
It is a guide that will come in handy endlessly in my own writing.
A book any writer of magic should own, read and use!!!' A genuine
writing from page 18-19 Beginning of Introduction:
It is a common practice in magic to speak of four, sometimes
five essential elements, which are the basic formation of the
beings or spirits who are known as the Elementals. In Western
magic these four elements are viewed as Fire, Water, Air and
Earth. In traditional Eastern magic, which is to say essentially
Chinese, Korean and Japanese magic, basically Taoist magic,
there are five elements conceived of as Fire, Water, Wood, Metal
and Earth. These two systems are often brought together somewhat,
but not entirely, in modern magical systems by adding an element
of spirit or ether to the Western systems.
We elves view the nature of the world into elements as well,
but we conceive of our elementals in coordination with the Periodic
Table of Elements of which there are four basic states of being.
These are Solid/Earth, Liquid/Water, Gaseous/Air and Plasma;
we however, as we will explain later have used Radiant or Transformative/Fire
for this fourth elemental state. The fifth element, the formulation
of ether or spirit, is not in our view an element at all but
rather the underlying energetic nature of all being. It is the
Unifying energy that unites them and is thus connected to and
is an expression of the Divine Magic.
Often the elements of fire, water, earth and air are also seen
as the Elementals. Thus the air element is also the air elemental.
(Sometimes these are viewed in the form of otherworldly spirits
associating Fire with Salamanders [dragons might be better],
Air with Sylphs, Water with Undines and Earth with Gnomes, although
we think Trolls might be more appropriate. If one were to give
an association for the element of spirit it would probably be
Angels.) However, to these elves, the elementals are the individual
formulations or spirits of the elements. Thus Hydrogen, Nitrogen
and Oxygen are Elementals of the Gaseous/Air element. Gold,
Silver and Platinum are elementals of the Solid/Earth element.
Of course, these elementals can at times change forms. Gases
can become liquid, liquid solid or gas, solid liquid and so
forth. These indicate relationships between the elementals..........
THE LORDS AND LADIES OF THE AIR AND THE NOBLE GASES, MASTERS
OF THE NEBULOUS REALMS
Hydrogen, Lord Quaridarea
(pronounced Q air rye dare ree
Lord of the Invisible Fire
Chant: Mighty Lord of Air and Fire brings us now our
This magical spirit is the lightest of the elementals. This
being so, this elemental may be of assistance to those seeking
the power of levitation; however, as we pointed out in the introduction,
Helium might be a better choice to evoke since the idea of being
lighter than air is so commonly associated with that elemental
and Hydrogen is explosive. Thus this elemental might push you
to change more quickly than you may wish. Of course, there is
no problem in evoking both these spirits if that is what you
wish to do; however, if you are in a hurry and dont mind
the stress then Lord Quaridarea is the one for you.
Lord Quaridarea also represents the most abundant chemical substance
in the Universe so his reach is vast and wide. Therefore, if
you wish to evoke the aspect of abundance in your life, this
would be a good spirit with which to start. Since hydrogen is
colorless, odorless, tasteless, this Lord is nearly invisible
when summoned and requires a psychic sense to see him. One tends
to feel his presence rather than see it. So if you wish to develop
the power of invisibility, to go through the world unseen and
yet have great influence in it, he is the elemental to consider.
Further, he may also be of value in anything that has to do
with ghosts or shards of the dead.
Hydrogen is a non-toxic, nonmetallic, highly combustible diatomic
gas and thus while Lord Quaridarea might be thought to be mild
mannered, he is really quite sensitive and volatile, manners
and decorum are especially important in summoning him. He knows
how influential he is. At the same time, Hydrogen is the simplest
element, so put on no airs around this Lord, directness
and simplicity will be appreciated.
And while he gets along well with water and many liquids and
doesnt mind going down into the world, he doesnt
get on well with metals and tends to make them brittle. Therefore,
it is unwise to have anything metal in your circle when evoking
him. If you feel you need a ritual blade or athame, let it be
made of obsidian or flint or stone or even wood or bone. The
same is true of your other instruments (tools) of magic.
On the other hand, for this same reason he is quite useful at
weakening metal. In the olden days he may have been evoked to
weaken the swords of ones enemies. And while we said that
he might be useful in evoking abundance; it is unlikely that
abundance will appear in the form of gold, silver or any other
metal. However, if you wish things to flow to you, he surely
can be of assistance there.
The word Hydrogen, which is from the Greek, means water forming.
Since water is H2O, two Hydrogen atoms combined to one Oxygen
atom, having a chalice or bowl of water in your circle can be
very conducive in his summoning.
From Page 25-26
Nitrogen, Lady Moderea
(pronounced moe deer ree - ah)
Lady of the Fields
Chant: Enrich us all the best you can and make the earth
a better land.
Nitrogen is the seventh most abundant element in the Universe;
therefore, Lady Moderea is very influential. At room temperature,
it is colorless and odorless and thus like the previous two
elementals, this Lady can be hard to see. It constitutes about
78% of the Earth atmosphere, so once again she is a very important
being. And while Nitrogen composes only about 3% of the mass
of the human body, it is none-the-less the fourth major element
in the body after oxygen, carbon, and hydrogen. It is often
a key ingredient in fertilizer, thus Lady Moderea is a patron
of gardeners, farmers and others who grow things. So if you
wish to provoke growth in your life or some situation in your
life, she is a good elemental to summon.
Nitrogen is also a key part of ammonia, nitric acid and organic
nitrates, which are used as propellants and explosives, and
also in cyanides, so she has her dangerous side, too. She is,
therefore, a key ingredient in fertilizer bombs. In this capacity,
Nitrogen is perhaps best noted in the form of saltpeter, sodium
nitrate or potassium nitrate (note those combinations of elementals),
which is a primary ingredient in gunpowder. When compounds explode,
burn or decay back into nitrogen gas, tremendous energy is released.
The Lady thus must be treated with due care and respect.
Interestingly, nitrogen also composes part of the compounds
that make Kevlar fabric and super glue so she has her protective
as well as bonding aspects as well. Find out the other elementals
involved to summon a combination that will produce the aspects
Alchemists during the Middle Ages called nitric acid, a nitrogen
compound, aqua fortis or strong water. Aqua regia or royal water,
a mixture of mixture of nitric and hydrochloric acids, was noted
for its ability to dissolve gold, which was important in alchemical
work. Thus this elemental has a strong association with Alchemists.
Also, every major pharmacological drug class has Nitrogen molecules
as a part of it. This includes antibiotics but also caffeine
and morphine. You can see how very important this elemental
is and the variety of things this Lady can influence is truly
vast. She has influence over amino acids (and therefore proteins)
and the nucleic acids, which is to say DNA and RNA. And despite
its tendency to be used for explosive purposes it tends to extinguish
fires. Its explosiveness, as we saw, coming from its tendency
to wish to return to its elemental state. Thus, like Helium,
Lady Moderea is really a bit of an introvert. Shed rather
putter around a garden, minding her own business, and only tends
to get volatile when forced into situations or relationships
with which shes uncomfortable. Thus, we repeat that she
loves to see things grow and is in her best mood when called
in that capacity.
If you are someone who has been forced to be other than you
truly are, pressured into conforming to standards that dont
suit your true nature, than this elemental is the one to summon
to help you return to your true self and your true relationship
Oxygen, Lady Emper (pronounced eem - peer)
Lady of the Enthusiasm
Chant: Awaken bright and stirring be, its time for
to clearly see.
Unlike Helium and Nitrogen, whose elementals tend to be introverts,
Lady Emper, the Mistress of Oxygen, is an out and out extrovert
who interacts easily with all sorts of elementals. The name
Oxygen, however, means acid forming, thus she can be a bit caustic
and is not afraid of expressing her opinions or her wit. This
Lady can party, but she can also burn you out. The expression
burning the candle at both ends definitely applies to her. Ruling
the third most abundant element in the Universe, she is extremely
powerful and influential.
While Oxygen composes most of the mass of living organisms,
this elemental also has great influence over many inorganic
compounds, such as teeth, shells and bone. But, Oxygen can be
toxic to some forms of life particularly those that were dominant
early on in Earths life cycle. Over twenty percent of
the volume of air is composed of Diatomic oxygen gas. Without
the influence of this elemental, we could not live in human/humanoid
bodies. Oxygen is also the most abundant element in the Earth's
crust, so you can see how very important this elemental is.
Like its brothers and sister before it, it tends to be colorless
and odorless at room temperature. Thus we have another spirit
that is difficult to see directly. In air, it tends to be O2,
which is to say that really there is not one elemental but two
sisters who are twins and can be easily mistaken for each other
since they are essentially identical. So keep this in mind when
summoning this elemental, you may get one or the other, but
most likely both of them. They go by the same name. They love
to hang out together. If you wish to deal with just one of them,
have a bowl of water that is exposed during the evocation to
direct sunlight. Otherwise, if you wish both sisters, you may
call them at night. Be lively, they love energetic people, they
love parties, they are 24 hr. party people. These elementals
are enchantresses and tend to be hostesses. If you wish to get
a coven or group together, they can be of great help.
If you can get them to materialize either in solid or a liquid
form, they will probably appear to be sky blue in color. Their
manifestation may be the inspiration for many Hindu gods and
even elves being pictured as having blue skin.
