Over the next few days we will focus on putting something that represents the elements in our box. Today we start with Air.
Some witches have specific ritual tools consecrated to each one of the elements but others take a more spontaneous approach using everyday items.
There is no ‘perfect’ elemental tool. Just pick something that is meaningful to you.
Air is the element of communication, ideas and exchange. It is invisible and we know it only through its effects on the world. It is changeable, self-aware and swift-moving.
Here are some ideas that can represent the element air:
Traditional: Sword or Wand in some traditions
Other objects: Windchimes Bell Feather Fan Incense Wind-blown flowers and seeds Brightly colored ribbons Yellow or White Candle Images of clouds and sky Angels Birds Butterfly Dragonfly Crystal Quartz Smokey Quartz Citrine String instruments Fairies A symbol of Air Eucalyptus, Lavender of Peppermint oil A statue or picture of Hermes or Thoth The Ace of Swords card Wheel Spoon
