Earth Elemental Associations

Animals: Most animals from forests and woods and animals that are active at night. Wolves, bears, etc. Colors: Olive, black, citrine, russet Court cards: Pages Function: Reliability, stability, greedy, boring, materialistic. Leprechauns: A type of Irish fairy sacred to Earth, sometimes known as the ‘wee folk’. These aren’t the cute sort- they’re capable of great evil just as we are, and tend to be tricksters, lustful, and mean. Leprechauns are said to drink heavily and are shoemakers. If you can find a leprechaun and catch him, you can take his gold… unless you get tricked out of letting him go. Yes, leprechauns are usually said to be males, and loners at that. Long ago, shoemakers were traditionally male, so for the culture it makes sense. Qualities: Cold, dry, excessively heavy. Unyielding, stubborn, passive, malleable, patient and ignorant. Obscurity, excessive solidity, and rest or stillness. Sense: Touch Stones: Quartz, rock salt. Tarot trump: The Devil, The Empress, The Emperor, The World. Tibetan failing: Pride.

Tibetan wisdom: The wisdom of equality. Time of day: Midnight. Trolls: Quite the fearsome creatures, trolls. Though in the modern day most trolls are nothing more than an online pest, this race from Norse mythology is related to “trolleri”, the Swedish name for a kind of magic intended to do harm. They aren’t intelligent, but it’s clear one doesn’t need to be intelligent to cause harm. They have tough skin and regeneration powers, and will eat anything including metal and bone. The only way to stop them is to burn them, and their eating habits lead them to a disgusting sort of attack: vomiting on their target. Types of magic: Grounding, prosperity, ancestor worship, fertility, plant magic. Zodiac: Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo

Ley Lines: Magical Energy of the Earth

What is a Ley Line?

Ley lines are believed by many people to be a series of metaphysical connections that link a number of sacred sites around the world. Essentially, these lines form a sort of grid or matrix, and are composed of the earth’s natural energies.

Benjamin Radford at Live Science says, “You won’t find ley lines discussed in geography or geology textbooks because they aren’t real, actual, measurable things… scientists can find no evidence of these ley lines — they cannot be detected by magnetometers or any other scientific device.”

Alfred Watkins and the Theory of Ley Lines

Ley lines were first suggested to the general public by an amateur archaeologist named Alfred Watkins in the early 1920s. Watkins was out wandering around one day in Herefordshire and noticed that many of the local footpaths connected the surrounding hilltops in a straight line. After looking a map, he saw a pattern of alignment. He posited that in ancient times, Britain had been crossed by a network of straight travel routes, using various hilltops and other physical features as landmarks, needed in order to navigate the once densely-forested countryside.
