What Effect Do Our Magical Body Parts (Elf Ears, Wings, Tails, Scales etc.) In Etheric Form Have Upon Elves and Otherkin?

December 17, 2018
Zarda_dragn_Naritatemple

“Even when the wings are just etheric, they still affect our incarnate being, for from an elven point of view the material world is shaped upon the ethereal and imaginal worlds and not the other way around as most people seem to presume…. Elf ears (pointed) for instance may be a bit atrophied and in need of being exercised by hearing intuitively, so imagine your Elven spirit body and then practice listening from that perspective on the shamanic and psychic plane.”

It is a simple fact that faeries love their wings in the same way that we elves love our pointed ears. And even though time and the circumstances of fate have served to remove the points from most of our elven ears and apparently there aren’t any humanoid faeries with physical wings, we still love to put on prosthetic ears and faeries love to wear their wings around whenever they are around their kindred and can feel free and safe in doing so. This wearing of wings and pointed ears is a recognition of our love of our ancient peoples and our attachment to the lore that surrounds them. Whether there were even humanoid beings with elf ears and faerie wings doesn’t entirely matter to us. What matters is, elf ears and faerie wings are cool, and we love them. While we might not have physical elf ears or wings anymore they still exist for us in our hearts, our imaginations therefore upon our bodies of light.

For the most part, in our experience, no two wings are exactly alike, just as snowflakes and fingerprints are each unique, and Otherkin wings come in a variety of thin/thickness, curves, range and which all effect the lift of the wing. One common problem that our winged otherkin brothers and sisters speak of (the angels, faeries, vampires, dragons, etc.) are the effects on one’s health when incarnated in a human body and while still having etheric wings, they no longer have physical wings to use for movement.

One of our kindred, Reinero De Valois, proposes that it is possible that this lack of use of the wings may cause or be caused by blocks of energy in the winged area that may even cause back problems and other ailments. A number of fae have verified his theory as he has helped them to unblock the energy, and one such fae sister did so adding that she feels it may be the lack of use of the wing when in human form that makes her walking difficult and even painful, effecting her lower back and legs. We see this as completely plausible from an aerodynamic view of wing lift and drag, in that a somewhat atrophied wing may have an incredibly burdensome drag on the human body. As we have said, the wing section characteristics, i.e. the shape and diameter of the wing area, effects the wing lift or ability to give assistance in motion to the body as does the ability to use devices like flaps to assist the lift. Even when the wings are just etheric, they still affect our incarnate being, for from an elven point of view the material world is shaped upon the ethereal and imaginal worlds and not the other way around as most people seem to presume.

But we feel too that this ‘disability’ can be corrected with proper visualizations and exercises. And so, we suggest that if any of our faerie kindred are having back or walking problems, they try some wing exercises to strengthen the use of the etheric wings and increase the lift ability. We are not suggesting that this will help you actually fly (although we leave that possible idea up to your imagination) but it may help your wings to assist you in ground motion, like walking and running and even jumping and it may help lessen the burden (and thus pain) on your body of carrying etheric wings around that have inadequate lift, even in their own realms, due to lack of use.

We suggest some visualization in which one first (in a standing position) exercises the full spread of their wings and full range of motion for 3 to 6 cycles (do this in pairs so if you have more than one pair of wings then you may wish to repeat the exercise for each pair separately). Once one has mastered this in a standing position, the next step is to try walking slowly at the same time, and eventually walking or running at a faster pace and a longer period of time (in time you may be able to use more than one set of wings at a time if your magical form has and uses multiple wings for flight). Take it very slowly at first and only do what feels right to you, using your own intuition to guide your exercise. You may also wish to visualize some etheric flaps at the bottom of your wings to help in the gliding once you have begun walking and running. And it should have a positive effect upon your posture overall.

There is a larger question subject here and that is “What effect are our magical body parts (wings, elf ears, tails, scales, etc.) in etheric form having upon our physical bodies and how can we heal and improve our bodies by increasing the use of these magical parts?” Elf ears (pointed) for instance may be a bit atrophied and in need of being exercised by hearing intuitively, so imagine your Elven spirit body and then practice listening from that perspective on the shamanic and psychic plane. We Silver Elves have long thought that is most likely what our elf ears are really for—increasing our psychic perception and our non-verbal connection to each other, past, present, and future.

While some folks might think this crazy, none-the-less, when someone loses an arm or a leg through injury or accident, they often still feel that phantom limb as though it were still there. It may still itch or ache and the solution they have found is to have a mirror of one’s other limb so one can see the phantom limb and scratch it. This is really the same principal at work here in understanding the astral limbs or other etheric body parts.

And it should be noted that while the lack of use of our etheric wings or ears may burden our physical bodies, this neglect can also have an effect upon our psychological well-being. When faeries get depressed perhaps they just need to get their etheric wings going and fly in spirit. When we elves, as so often happens, feel so very alone in the world, searching ever for our others, perhaps we might consider listening to them with our etheric elf ears. For if you listen carefully, you can hear them in the distance drawing ever closer, calling to us in their hearts as we are calling to them.

So, dear Sisters and Brothers, may your wings be fluttering, your ears be attuning, your tails be waving, and your scales be shining!

And what about those faerie wings? Here is an excerpt from Caressed By An Elven Breeze: The Poems of Zardoa Silverstar of an enchanting poem about a faerie who had no wings:

The Faerie Who Had No Wings . . . . . .

There once was a faery that couldn’t fly

He was born without wings

But no one knew why.

They took him to doctors

And wise women, too

But no one knew why

Or what to do.

They said, “It’s a shame,

That’s certainly so.”

But when asked the cause

They said, “We don’t know”.

And when asked the cure

They said much the same

Despite their titles, diplomas or fame.

So this faery named ‘Wingless’

By all of his friends

Grew up on the ground

While they did ascend

To the tops of the trees

To the bottoms of the clouds

He felt quite ashamed

While they felt most proud.

But his mother did love him

As good mothers do

She said you’re without wings

Oh yes this is true

But that’s not your fault

It’s nothing you’ve done

And though you can’t fly

You are still my son.

And you know among faeries

You are quite unique

You’re special, my son

But he felt like a freak.

And he thought to himself

What’s the matter with me

Why don’t I have wings,

Like a normal faery?

Why can I not soar

Why can I not fly

And look down on the Earth

From way up high

Like everyone else

Like all faery kind

Why is it me

Who’s left behind.

And as he did grow

And was given chores

They were close to the ground

Or near to the shores

He tended the flowers

And the roots of the trees

And the branches low hanging

That swept in the breeze.

And sometimes he’d climb

As high as he could

And watch all his friends

Sail like birds though the wood

And then he would wish

And then he would sigh

And gaze with great longing

Across the sky.

But always in time

He’d have to climb down

And have his feet

Once again on the ground

And though he’d enjoyed it

He’d still have to frown

For he felt like a fool

He felt like a clown.

For his friends seemed so graceful

As they skimmed cross the sky

And he felt so clumsy

As he climbed way up high

His mother would tell him

It’s really okay

But strangely it never

To him felt that way.

But he worked very hard

And he did his best

Completed his chores

Like all the rest

Was good at his job

In every detail

Bringing love to the flowers

Everyday without fail.

And as the days came and went

And nights passed him by

He came to accept

He never would fly

He gave up trying

And wishing, too

He came to accept

There was naught he could do.

He was born without wings

And that was his fate

Though he hoped as a teenager

That they’d grow in late

But that was a wish

That never came true

And once again

There was naught he could do.

So day by day

And night by night

He did all he could

To be happy and bright

And accept his life

As it came to be

Tending to flowers

And loving the trees.

For while it was true

That his friends could all fly

What did they do

Up in the sky

But tend to flowers

And love all the trees

And laugh in the sun

And sway in the breeze.

They did all that he did

And he did the same

Except for flying

There was naught one could name

That he couldn’t do

As good as another

He was a faerie true

Like any other.

And so he accepted his fate

As he grew up at last

His life was his own

The dice they were cast

And now the only thing

Left him to do

Was accept himself

As he was, he knew.

And so off he went

Into the deep woods

To think on his life

And all the great goods

That had come to him

In the course of his days

And the mysteries of Nature

And all of her ways.

For our lives each have meaning

Or maybe they don’t

You have to decide

Or maybe you won’t

Things are as they are

As they’re meant to be

But still we can change

If our minds are free.

On this our dear faerie

Without wings he did think

As he strolled through the trees

And the dew he did drink

And thankful was he

For his life as it was

Because it was his

And perhaps just because.

So walking about

He happened to spy

A lovely young elf

With a twinkle in her eye

He said, “Greetings, elf kin,

How goes it today?

Do you live here about

Or pass on your way?” …………

“. . . . in the long run the ultimate connection will be the feeling you have for each other — the sense of simpatico, the realization of kinship and kindreth. But there are other things that you can use to discover more about them.”

First, it always helps if you start with examining yours’elf. You are a member of that tribe so they are like you. So, begin by looking at yours’elf, particularly examine what you feel about yours’elf, what you imagine about yours’elf, for much of our elfin faerie natures are buried in our subconscious, in the Collective Unconscious that is shared by all our kindred, and which we inherited from the ancestors, and which can often be best accessed by trusting our own intuition about ours’elves.

If you like or are drawn to this or that, then, it is very likely that so will your people. It is not that you are all exactly the same, surely. For elfae sorts are eccentrics by our very natures, but still tribes of elves and packs of pixies, and flocks of faeries wearing frocks, and conspiracies of unseelie, surely have much in common with each other. Of course, it is true that you are unlikely to recognize your people merely by their appearance. Although, that can be an aid. You can see a particular folk wearing this and that style and think, hey, I love that style, and know by doing so that you are related to them somehow. Yet, in the long run the ultimate connection will be the feeling you have for each other — the sense of simpatico, the realization of kinship and kindreth. But there are other things that you can use to discover more about them.

You may very well ask: What is your magic? For it is likely you have some magic in common. In fact, magic is something nearly all elves and elfae have in common, although the particular types and forms of magic may vary from tribe to clan. We are nearly all of us enchanters of some sort, but some of us practice healing magic, while others emphasize sorcery, shamanism, druidism, witchcraft, wizardry, ceremonial magic, necromancy or necromagery or any one or number of numerous other magic technologies. In that way, we are somewhat like doctors and other professionals. Some doctors are general practitioners, others are pediatricians, optometrists, surgeons and so on. And even then, there is subdivision. Some are brain surgeons, some heart surgeons. While all doctors tend to get the general medical education, most tend to specialize in time. So do we, as elfae, tend to specialize in the types of magic we do. Which doesn’t mean there aren’t general practitioners out there, or individuals with several specialties, but merely that magic is so vast one can be a jack-of-all-trades, as the saying goes, or a true master of a few. Knowing our magic tells of something of our people.

You may also ask about your preferred element (water, fire, air, earth, spirit, metal. etc.) or where would you prefer to live, etc. Most elfae have fairly definite feelings about the environment they prefer to live in. Some are wood elves, some are mountain elves, river or ocean elves and so forth. In many ways, that will get you close to your tribe. If you would find them, certainly knowing where they might be or wish to reside can prove to be a great help. Likewise, you can examine your preferences for your favorite tree or flower, gems and crystals, or totem animals. It is also very helpful to imagine what fictional elf or fairy folk you might be most like. These preferences of your own are also all hints as to what others in your elfae or otherkin tribe might be drawn to and are part of the fabric of your magical narrative.

It can take years to find our people. Seeking here and there in the world, on the internet, ever hoping to encounter those with whom one will truly feel attuned. So use your magic. If you have not found your kin as yet, then it may help to create something you like, perhaps a bit of elfae art or music, and share it as widely as possible. If you like it then others of your tribe will most likely feel attuned to it as well and be drawn to it and you. By doing so you are using the essential skill of all elfae to use enchantment magic to find your kindred. Remember, they are as attracted to you as you are to them. And every moment that you spend searching for them, they are looking for you as well.

And If I feel that I’m some sort of Otherkin but don’t know what kind, what should I do?

First, you should trust your instincts, intuitions, imagination and really, in this instance, your desires. We Silver Elves have been asked from time to time by various folks what sort of elf or faerie or other they might be and we have, as much as possible, resisted telling them what they are, because what they truly are depends almost entirely upon their own wishes. We have opinions, of course. But for the most part, unless someone really urges us to share our impressions and observations with them, we keep them among ours’elves. And no matter what our opinions may be, it is still up to the individual to decide and declare through action what they truly are. It is not our business to tell you who you are but your right to tell us who you are.

There was even an occasion a decade or so ago when someone wrote a post on the internet claiming we had said they were this or that (we don’t remember what), which was utterly untrue because, for the most part, we don’t tell people what sort of other they are. We just don’t. However, if someone is totally lost and wants our opinion, we may offer it as a suggestion that they may proceed upon until they discover within their own s’elves what sort of elfae they may be. Their own reaction to what we tell them, whether they embrace the suggestion or not, in itself will tell them a bit about thems’elves.

Although, here we rather come to the crux of the matter. The question involves the fact that the person doesn’t know what sort of elfae they are. But the reality of Elfin and Faerie isn’t a matter of what you are but what you wish to be. And if you support that wish with action, which is to say the magic of living, or manifestation, of making it real in your life and in the world, that is what you are and what you will be. We are not simply the products of Faerie and Elfin, we are its co-creators.

Most folks think in terms of their ancestors. They are elven or faerie or whatever in their minds because they were born that way, which is to say created that way by some outside force, god or power. But we are elfae folk, we are others, we are magicians, enchanters and spell weavers and we are whatever we wish to be. We are not what others have made us, but what we make of ours’elves.

Now, this is not to say that others don’t have influence in our lives. This is surely true of our earliest beginnings. So, if you are asking not what you are but what you were, that is a different question. A question really that has to do with previous lifetimes. But in elven philosophy, you don’t have to remain ever the same, as some authors have mistakenly written about us that we are eternal but never changing. What doesn’t change isn’t eternal. Change and transformation are part and parcel of the eternal. In a certain sense, all elfae are shapeshifters, not only changing our bodies from lifetime to lifetime and surely aging, usually gracefully, within a lifetime, but changing our minds, our attitudes and our sense of being, which we ever strive to improve, uplift and make better. We attune ours’elves to Nature within and without so that all that we do is natural and thus easy.

So, the question here isn’t really what sort of elfae am I but what sort of elfae do I wish to be. What sort of spirit do I wish to manifest in the world. Although, the answer is generally found in our own inner being. Who do you wish to be? What sort of elfae or other sings to your heart and soul? What kind of elfae arouses your imagination? This is Faerie. This is Elfin. You can be whomever you wish to be. But you must enliven this wish with magic if you wish it to be true. If you wish it to be real, you must make it real by living it. So, who are you? What sort of elfae? Only you know for sure and only you can realize it, which is to say only you can make it real for yours’elf and therefore for others.

And, if you haven’t already, or if you’d like to do so again, take our elfae/otherkin type quiz on our Silver Elves website (http://silverelves.angelfire.com/HAelfkin.html) and we will do our best to assist you in creating a magical narrative that will help you understand your elfae/otherkin type and tribe, a gift from us to you. For surely in understanding yours’elf and your others, you will grow closer still in the nether realms and drawn ever nearer in the world.

Why Are So Many Modern Elves So Into Fashion?

May 12, 2018

ZandSilverF_elf costumes
“. . . we put on pointed ears and dress in traditional elfin garb and embrace our magical nature whenever we can, doing whatever we can, no matter how superficial it may seem to link us to the realm and folk that we love and of whom we are so beloved. Wearing elven fashion, dressing in elven raiment is an act of magic. It is an announcement of one’s true nature, one’s connection to Elfin and our kindred elves, and every time one does so it radiates a bit of Elfin into the world.”

Fashion is a particularly faerie thing, usually. Faeries love fashion but elves do also and particularly in this age where our very existence is often denied and in which others feel it their right to ridicule our cultural heritage, never even bothering to ask what we mean when we say we are elves, or making any inquiry at all. We elfin are inclined to cling to those things that declare our elvenness to the world. Thus we put on pointed ears and dress in traditional elfin garb and embrace our magical nature whenever we can, doing whatever we can, no matter how superficial it may seem to link us to the realm and folk that we love and of whom we are so beloved. Wearing elven fashion, dressing in elven raiment is an act of magic. It is an announcement of one’s true nature, one’s connection to Elfin and our kindred elves, and every time one does so it radiates a bit of Elfin into the world.

In many ways, it is not unlike dressing up for Halloween in a fashion that one loves but which would not be deemed appropriate the rest of the year. So many elfin go to faerie faires, ren faires and other gatherings and put on their elven raiment for those events that simply would be socially unacceptable for work or even for just walking around in the world. We love being elves, but most of us are not daring enough as yet, to prance or glide about presenting our true s’elves on a constant basis and the simple fact is that we might lose our jobs if we did so or just face unwanted hostility from miscellaneous folks in the world who believe it is their duty to be the fashion police and keep everyone in line. And in some areas, where the orcs, goblins and grimlins abide, to beat them in line.

Some folk, perhaps many elfae folk, are simply not ready to fully accept their elven nature and thus they dress up and pretend to be what they really are, or pretend to pretend, and approach the borders of Living Elfin as close as they may but they dare not step over into that realm where they’d say, “Yes, I am an elf (or faerie or pixie or whatever),” for fear of others reactions. They still hunger for social approval and acceptance and until they value freedom and mastery of their own responses in the world over the opinions of others, they will never quite pass the threshold (the forest’s edge) into Elfin. But whenever we wander among them, we do our best to nurture them and they have our love and sympathy for their predicament.

We who have fully embraced our elven nature, still must often move with caution through the world at times. Sometimes camouflaging our s’elves and our natures, most times wearing raiment that is suggestive of the elven but isn’t quite smacking it in their faces the way pixies often do.

So why are so many elves into fashion? Because we love being fair. We love being the fair folk, the faire folk, the faerie folk and it is our way of saying to those who are open to it, we are elves. Most can’t see it. In fact, most refuse to see the truth. They see what they wish to see ever limited by their stereotypes and preconceptions, but for those who are ready, something stirs in them and they feel the Call of Elfin, just as we did and think, I may just step a bit closer. And we ever await them.

What Does It Mean To Be An Elf?

September 14, 2017

Blessings1 copy

For these elves overall, being Elven means creating
a world of wonder and magic where we can be together
in love forever with our beloved kindred.

This is like the questions, what does it mean to be a woman, or what does it mean to be a man, or what does it mean to be a human being. All of which can be answered in innumerable ways by various individuals and still will never encapsulate the entirely of the question. What does it mean to be an elf? Well, first it means that we are spirits who have chosen to manifest as elves. Being an elf is a spiritual choice. That, first and foremost, is the most important thing because being an elf is always about choice. While one may feel that as an individual sHe had no choice but to be born as a man or a woman or to this or that race, these elves think that we are elves principally because we have chosen to be so, we have chosen to be born elves (in human bodies).

The thing is, however, there will certainly be other elfin who feel that they were born as elves and had no other choice but to be elves, and that their birth as an elf was not by their own choice. And while we disagree with this point of view for our own s’elves, we cannot help recognize their right as elves to believe this for thems’elves if that is their wish. Usually, however, we tend to think that people feel forced to believe they are only elven by birth and not choice because they wish to assert their essential elvenness in a world that almost continually seeks to deny their elven being and ridicules them for even daring to think that they are elves. In saying that they were born elven without a choice, they assert their right to be elves no matter what others may think. This is the same dilemma that confronts gays who feel they must assert that they are gay by birth/nature because of those who judge them and say instead that they are gay by choice and have no right to be. But, from an elven point of view, it doesn’t matter if they are gay by birth or not, they have every right to choose to be gay, just as we have every right to choose to be elven.

Still, it seems to us that we choose to be born elven, which is to say, we choose to manifest as elves for we are elven in spirit. And certainly we could choose to deny our elven natures and hide among normal folk. Many of us have tried to do this and a great many of us have failed for while we can sort of pass among them, most elven never quite feel comfortable among the normal folk and they in their turn are never quite comfortable around us entirely either. They usually feel they can trust us once they get to know us, but they are never quite sure what we are (which is something strange and wondrous) and if we told them they wouldn’t believe it anyway. At the same time, the choice to manifest or not as elves is ours. It many ways, it is really about whether we accept ours’elves or not.

In a certain sense this question: what does it mean to be an elf, is really about individuals searching for some definition of elvinness that they can compare thems’elves against. We could say an elf is this or that and they could see if it fits them and thus know if they are elven or something else. But the problem with this is that elves, being the unique and individual beings we are, never fit comfortably into set categories and no matter what you might say about what it means to be an elf, you’ll probably find some elf who says: “well, not this elf.” And again, how could we deny them their right to pursue their elfinness however they may define it. Elfin and Faerie are vast and there is room for everyone in it. Those who don’t accord with our sort of elfin nature will find their way to another part of Elfin. But none are denied and none are rejected. Not by Elfin and not by these elves. Only the individual hir own s’elf can deny hir entry into Elfin. Only the individual can deny and reject hir own elfin nature. The most we can say is that they are different elves than we, and that is surely true of nearly all elves, even our most beloved. The principle that opposites attract holds true in Elfin as well as the rest of the Universe.

But in another sense, the meaning of being an elf depends upon the elf hir own s’elf. ‘What does it mean to hir?’ is the essential question. So the question really is: what does being an elf mean to you? And only you can answer that question and mostly you can only do so by your behavior, your actions, your magic. What you say is not nearly as powerful or telling as what you do.

For these elves overall, being elven means creating a world of wonder and magic where we can be together in love forever with our beloved kindred. Beyond that, it is really up to each one to make of Elfin what sHe will.

What the Elves Say About Themselves — from Elf Quotes by The Silver Elves:

“We elfin often have cause to pass through the world of the normal folk, but for us it is like someone swimming beneath the sea. We can swim beneath the ocean and explore the world of the fishes but we are ever aware that it is not our natural environment and we are only ever visitors there.”

“Some people think that we elfin are re-emerging in the world in order to take control. We find this idea laughable. We have not come to control the world but to set it free.”

“What truly defines the elves is our unique and individual beings. There is an exception to every rule and the elves are usually it.”

“Some people speak of half elves or of being part elfin, but we elven do not see it that way. To us, if you are half elven, you are elfin. If you are part elven, you are elfin. If you are a friend to the elves, you are elfin, too. If you wish to be elfin, you are as elfin as you wish to be.”

“In so much as there are elves who exist in human bodies and we can interbreed with man, we can be considered part of humanity, although we prefer to call it “hu-elvity.”

The Voice of Faerie: Making Any Tarot Deck Into an Elven Oracle

September 16, 2013

We are very excited…

Dearest Kin … to have recently published our second book on tarot. Our first book, “The Elven Book of Powers” is a guide to using the tarot of magical visualization and wish fulfillment, with evocations, invocations and rhyming spells for each card in a traditional tarot deck. Our newest book, “The Voice of Faerie”, is a reference guide for reading the tarot. It is a Living Book (to be consulted over and over in time) designed to be used in concert with any tarot deck so that the meaning of the cards can be easily accessible to anyone interested in communicating with the elven and faerie spirits of other realms and dimensions.

Sample From the Major Arcana:

0. Awakening: Something Magic This Way Comes, Wicked’s Had Its Way Too Long

TAROT: THE MAGICIAN



Something Magic This Way Comes



Something Magic This Way Comes is a card of blessing and good luck. An unexpected turn of affairs brings new magic into your life, refreshing and revitalizing you. Other signs will confirm this soon.
Greet this change of circumstances with optimism and enthusiasm, thus making the most of it. Something Magic This Way Comes is a confirmation of the power of the good and the beautiful to renew itself. It is a response from Faerie to the magic you have already done and that is now coming to fruition.
 However, Something Magic This Way Comes also implies that we must wait for the magic to arrive. It is coming but it hasn’t come yet. It’s on its way but still we must await it with patience as well as expectation.
 This card holds the promise therefore of good to come, of the triumph of good over evil, of the return of health and healing after illness, or the beginnings of understanding after estrangement and clarity in the wake of confusion. 
The magic time is coming. Have faith; trust in its arrival. Know that the Dawn will disperse the darkness, that Spring will chase away winter’s chill, bringing new growth and renewal.

Visualization: 

The feeling has been growing for weeks now and each day it gets stronger. Something is about to happen. Something special. Something Magic This Way Comes.
You tingle inside. Power surges through your body. You feel like you can hardly contain it and you are alive with expectancy. Something comes. Something magic. You can feel it in the wind. The trees whisper about it. The birds call to you, telling you it’s coming. “It’s coming. It’s coming,” they say.
 Your power is calling you. It’s as though someone suddenly plugged you into a wall socket. The electricity streams through your body. You’re alive, alive, alive with the magic, with the power, with the possibility.

The Magic:

 Stop and relax a moment. Where is the magic? Is the power building or waning? Can you feel it? Don’t try to force anything. Just feel the energy. Note where it is. Check it daily. Make yours’elf ready.


(An Alternate Interpretation)
 Wicked’s Had Its Way Too Long

Wicked’s Had Its Way Too Long tells us that sooner or later the Law of Karma is fulfilled in its exacting fashion. Those that have stood against the light fall and the good prevails once again. Each receives hir (his/her) just and exact due as hir magic is fulfilled. 
This is the time of struggle, however. Evil will not give up on its own volition. We must act against it with all our power bringing the weight of our Elven magic to bear, but a direct confrontation with evil is to be avoided if at all possible because we wind up entangled in conflict and destruction. We, and many innocent bystanders, are often harmed by this conflict. Direct confrontation, therefore, is a last resort. The best defense again evil is to make energetic progress toward the realization of our positive dreams and visions. By creating our eald, our bit of Faerie, in the world, by putting all our energy toward creating a better world, we undermine the power of the Wicked, which depends upon decay and dissatisfaction to gain its ends. It is parasitic by nature and 
cannot endure on its own. Creating our own realm of Elfin is like turning on a light in a dark room.
By pursuing fairness and justice for all, we remove the sources of discontent upon which evil thrives and that it ever endeavors to create in order to bring imbalance to the world.
However, sometimes evil must be faced directly and so this is a card of choice. If you receive this card you must decide your best course in dealing with wickedness in this situation. Do you act toward the good, act against evil or wait for things to change on their own?


Something Magic This Way Comes and Wicked’s Had Its Way Too Long are paired, although, one follows the other. This indicates that after obtaining magical power and influence, one is then faced with a choice concerning what to do with that power. What will you do with the power you gain?


Visualization: 

It has become clear to you that there are those who are deliberately seeking to enslave the world for their own profit and gratification. It is also evident to you, having the magical power that you do, that you have a responsibility to use your powers to remove these people from the positions of power from whence they carry out their wicked aims.
The question is: what’s the best way to do this? Should you use your powers to create good and ignore those others, trusting in time and karma to deal with them? Or do you think that the situation demands that you take measures to bind their evil and obstruct their path? Can you do both?


The Magic: 
Hold a magic circle and do a binding. Resist wickedness in your own life and you will have the power to bind it on the nether planes.
