Earth is a sensual element that will charge prosperity charms, fertilize your creative spells, and help your magic grow. The optimum time of the week to perform earth magic is on a Saturday (ruled by the planet Saturn), or a Friday (ruled by Frigg, the Norse Earth Goddess). If possible, choose dawn or dusk when the magical half-light is neither day nor night, a truly mystical time.
Earth spells a most powerful when performed outside. A wood, cave, hill, or moor make a natural sacred space in which you can attune to the earth’s energy, infusing your spell-casting with the forces of nature. If you live in the city, a park or garden can be just as effective. After using salt, sand, or soil in a rite, ground the energy of your spell by returning it to the earth in a respectful manner, or use it as an offering to the spirit of a tree.
