Air is one of the four primary elements and comprises one of the four watchtowers of a circle used for casting magic or raising energy for protection. The element of air is closely associated with knowledge and the intellect and it may be used to discern clarity in a situation or to bring new knowledge toward the caster.
Although witches do utilise the power of the wind to facilitate spell work it is perhaps more commonly documented that witches use spell work to control the power of the wind. In older times a witch used to sell the power of the winds to sailors. She would tie knots in a piece of rope and instruct the sailors to release the knots one by one to intensify the strength of the winds.
Many witches use wind chimes in and around their property. There is a lot of folk lore surrounding this. One function of the chimes is to keep negative spirits at bay, another is to attract good spirits with the vibrations of the tunes generated by the wind. The sound of the chimes can also be used to clear negative vibrations in the air and as some witches will use a bell to purify a circle before ritual, it is not unusual for wind chimes also to be employed for this purpose.
The element of air can be used for creating powerful shields. The visualisation of a wind generated forcefield or vortex can be a strong image to base personal shielding upon.
Wind can be used to raise energy, witches tap into wind power in a not dissimilar way to how the power is harnessed as a source of power for industry (minus the wind turbines, lol). It can also be used to sweep away negativity, by blowing negative vibes from the home.
One of the best ways to perform a spell using the wind is to take a piece of cotton and tie each of your worries into the cotton as an individual knot. The cotton is then cast into the winds and the worries are blown away as the wind carries them from the caster.
