Invoke the elements
Rekindle harmony and vigour with the help of these elemental rituals from our spiritual experts
Reap your manifestations with this planting ritual from elemental expert Karen Kay
1 At the new moon, take a seed and hold it in your hands in a prayer position. Think of a heartfelt wish you would like to manifest.
2 In your mind or out loud say: “Oh little seed, filled with all the love and light of the universe. I imbue in you my love that you may grow big and strong, and that your time on earth will be healthy and long.”
3 Place the seed in the ground, in an area where it will have the freedom and space to grow unhindered.
4 Call in the fairies to protect and nurture the seed as it gestates deep within the soil. Say: “Fairies of the earth, I call on you, to protect this seed, hear my wish, it’s already true.”
5 Gently cover the seed with your hands
over the soil. Visualise love and light beaming into the ground where the seed is.
6 Then, call upon the fairies once again by saying out loud or in your mind: “Please keep watch over this seed as it grows, I leave this seed under your tender care, I am grateful to you, for the love you share.”
7 Return to check on the seed each new and full moon, and as it grows, so too will your heartfelt wish.

Wash away bad habits with these witchy water spells from High Priestess Silja
Water is the feminine element, ruled over by the Moon Goddess who influences the tides. It is usually called on and placed in the west and represented by a bowl of water during rituals. However, it can also be represented with a blue candle on the altar by a chalice. Ultimately, in magick, water can be used to clear away the bad – energies, habits and circumstances. Try these simple spells:
1 Go to the sea or a fast-moving river and throw a pebble with a drawing or carving that represents a habit you wish to break – this could be a cigarette for smoking for example.
2 After a stressful day, take a shower and visualise the negativity going down the drain.
3 For situations and people you wish to cut ties with, write down the name of the person or situation on a piece of paper. Then, put this piece of paper in a cup of water and in the freezer to literally ‘freeze them out’ of your life!
4 For divination, put a few drops of dark ink into the water of your cauldron and interpret the swirls it makes. Alternatively, place a lit candle behind a clear, full glass of water and interpret the flickering shapes and lights that you see through it.

Unleash your fiery passion with help from ceremonialist and magick maker Amanda
For this ritual you will need a pen and paper, a timer and one candle and fireproof bowl.
1 To begin, sit quietly, ground yourself and meditate on your candle whilst visualising a golden dome of protection surrounding you.
2 When you’re ready, chant: “Powers of fire, help me transmute darkness into light. Through you I release un-serving energy and allow passion and desire to re-ignite.”
3 Set your timer now for five minutes and write down all that you wish to release, then place the paper over the candle flame and into the fire proof bowl. Be present as it burns and turns to ash – take as long as you need.
4 When ready, gaze upon your candle flame, asking the fire to purify you and your surroundings. Notice the empty space that has now been created within you from this release. Acknowledge yourself for showing up.
5 Once you feel complete with the ritual, speak the following to close: “Energies of passion and bright flame, thank you for your powers of transmutation. I give thanks to Mother Earth for grounding me and the light for protecting me. I draw in my power and return to the hearth of my heart. So it is.”

Clear away the cobwebs with ceremonialist and energy healer Violet Skies
This practice invokes the element of air to support you in blowing away what no longer serves so you can flow with the winds of change, bringing newness into your life. It’s the perfect time to utilise this with the energy of spring approaching.
1 Star by lighting your favourite incense to support you in welcoming air into the space. Next gently close the eyes, taking a deep breath in through the nose. Connect with the element of air as it fills your lungs, visualising new beginnings entering your body as a bright, purifying light.
2 Next, exhale through your mouth using the out breath to blow away anything that might be holding you back – things you no longer wish to take forward in your life.
3 In time with your breathing say these words in your mind: “I take this breath bringing the element of air in, welcoming divine light to fill me within. Into my life I invite new beginnings to flow, and with the out breath I let negativity go. Any blockages holding me back I release, from this moment forward I manifest with ease.”
4 Continue this until you feel complete. Gently open your eyes and say out loud: “And so it is, it is done!”

Open your mind’s eye with psychic medium and spiritual teacher Fenn Pullinger
When connecting with Spirit, it is important to make your intention clear in your mind as well as raise your vibration to a higher frequency, which can be done by listening to music or meditating. Spirit exists on a higher vibration to us, and in order to communicate, we have to connect to that and tune in. Always ground and protect yourself beforehand and ensure you close the channel afterwards.
1 To start the ritual, find a quiet space where you will not be disturbed and ensure that you are comfortable. You can put on some gentle meditation and light a candle to create the right ambiance. Hold a clear quartz crystal – this will help you to connect.
2 Close your eyes and start to create a safe space in your mind. You can be creative with this, perhaps it’s a room, or an outdoor space. Whatever feels right and comfortable for you.
3 Now invite your spirit guides in to bring in a pure spirit and just feel their energy. Still your mind and allow any messages to flow in, trust what you see/hear/feel. Feel free to jot down the messages you received so you can look back on and build on them.
