Wicca Natural Magic Kit: The Sun, The Moon, and The Elements, Elemental Magic, Moon Magic, and Wheel of the Year Magic - Lisa Chamberlain 2018


Many people first learn of the Wicca religion in the context of Magic and Witchcraft.

Although there is far more to Wicca than Witchcraft, I wanted to create a guide that helped newcomers and seasoned Witches alike to learn about the properties of the Elements that make up our Universe—as well as providing knowledge for readers who want to practice Witchcraft. After all, a great number of Wiccans do practice Witchcraft, whether on special occasions such as the Sabbats or as part of their daily routine, and as such, the information is important.

Of course, the way Magic and Witchcraft is portrayed in Hollywood is very different from how it is practiced in reality. However, the only thing that really matters is to always practice Witchcraft from a good place, and with good intent—you should never perform spellwork that deliberately seeks to harm another person, or encourages them to act against their will. Love spells are a great example of this, as, although love is a positive emotion, forcing a specific person to fall in love with you is highly manipulative.

This isn’t an issue for most Wiccans—our appreciation of nature and the world around us means we are a peaceful bunch! However, for anyone planning on practicing Witchcraft for mischievous ends, the Threefold Law is highly ingrained into the Wiccan belief systems. This essentially says that whatever intent you send out into the Universe—in other words, good or bad—will come back to you three times as great. While some Wiccans will disagree over the existence of this cosmic ’law,’ it is still a useful guideline to follow, and encourages all of us to be better human beings.

In this guide, I have attempted to take an unbiased approach wherever possible; however, as nothing with Wicca is set in stone, my own experiences as a practicing Wiccan may have influenced certain sections of the book. I have tried to be open and informative about the differing beliefs among Wiccans, and make reference to them where relevant, but some information presented will undoubtedly be influenced by my own journey and understanding of the topics.

To become a practicing Wiccan you do not have to share all of the beliefs I hold, or the ones presented in this guide. If something doesn’t feel right to you, you’re free to find your own path, and incorporate the beliefs and practices that do resonate with you. For many Wiccans, their beliefs are constantly changing with every new experience they face. My advice to you is to keep an open mind, as what you believe to be true today could alter a great deal tomorrow.

In my opinion, this is the best thing about Wicca: it is a lifelong journey, on which you will never stop learning!

I will leave you with that thought, though I sincerely hope that this guide to the Elements has given you a better understanding of the Universe and the world you inhabit. I have included a number of tables of correspondence at the end of this guide, which should prove useful as a reference point for any further study of the Elements.

I sincerely hope you enjoyed learning about Wicca and Witchcraft with me, and I would love for you to become a regular practitioner—by following the outlines in Part Three, you have everything you need to get started. However, if this is the end of your Wiccan journey, I hope you have learned something new, and that you better understand the belief system of the wonderful people who practice Wicca.

Thank you one more time for reading.

Blessed Be.
