From the Major Powers:

Creation, The Magic

TAROT: MAGICIAN

SYMBOL: THE LINE

THE MAGICAL TOOL: WAND

 

This is the power of Creation and creativity. With this power one can create one’s own world, realm, eald, etc. Unlike the first power, which is essentially effortless and accepting, this second power strives to mold the world, or really a part of the world, by its own vision. There is a danger here that one may attempt to compel their vision upon others and force them to yield to one’s will. This, however, is a violation of the basic principles of elfin magic and a corruption of this power, which functions not through force and coercion, but by attraction and enthusiasm.

Fantasy writers who create worlds so vivid that hordes of fans hunger to enter into them give a good example of this power to us. Tolkien’s works stand as a testament to this power. This power is also true of those who founded religions, kingdoms, fashion and art styles, etc. However, if one proceeds as if their way is the only way, the one true and right way to be, then they have lost their way and are wandering toward the dark side.

The true power of creation stands as a unique and individual manifestation, among other unique and individual forms and beings. It is a star among a Universe of Stars. It is ever a pioneer, and if others follow the trail it has blazed, it does not care, for it has already moved on.

Create your own Eald, dear elfin, and invite your co-creators to join you in the weaving of a magic that makes a better world for all of us.

 

EVOCATION:

I summon forth the powers of Creation

I make my world anew by the power of my vision

Talents, skills, and powers come to me seeking expression

I send them forth to make the world more loving, kind, and beautiful

I send them forth to make life more exciting, adventurous, and fulfilling

I send them forth to express thems’elves perfectly

Great artists each in their chosen field.

INVOCATION:

I open myself to the powers of creativity

That I may express mys’elf truly in my own way

Creating wonders of magic and beauty in my own style

Filled with energy and power I set forth

Renewed, and revived, and ready to give to the world

The treasures that I bear within me.

ENCHANTMENT:

The powers of creation are mine

The world responds like clay

And in the course of time

We see the coming day

Awakens now renewed

Our efforts have been true

And the magic we have brewed

Will guide us on our way.

From the Minor Powers:

WATER: SUIT OF CUPS

Love—Minor

 

TAROT: ACE OF CUPS

THE SYMBOL: THE HEART

THE MAGICAL TOOL: CHARM BRACELET

This is the root power of all relationships, whether it be family, romantic, friendship, acquaintance, legal, business or any other. They all come under the influence of this power. Being under the element/state of water/liquidity, this power is very fluid in nature and extremely adaptable, yet it retains its essential nature in its largest and most microscopic forms. It is also very feeling oriented and its essence is based upon feeling rather than mental or even spiritual attraction. Thus it is linked to both intuition and instinct, but primarily to the feeling of attraction or repulsion that draws us to or inclines us to avoid certain individuals.

For any relationship you wish to develop, improve or from which you wish to depart, this power can be of help. It is also a supplementary power to all the other fluid powers. To invoke this power is to develop your own ability in creating successful relationships, enhancing the power of your personality, giving it weight and power.

The evocation of this power brings the personal touch and an inner sense of connectedness to even the most formal associations. If one feels they are faced with a mindless and callous bureaucracy, the conjuration of this energy will arouse a sense of sympathy and relatedness in those with whom one must interact, helping to bring the element of the human or humane/elven into an otherwise cold and uncaring association. It awakens the feeling in people, helps remind them that they are not robots, but feeling human beings/spirits, which it to say spiritual beings.

 

EVOCATION:

I treat all I meet with loving kindness

With gentle concern, with reassuring comfort

Each relationship bearing the potentiality for friendship

For romance, or for a delighted flirtation

Each an opportunity to spread love into the world

To make the world a better place

A more loving place

A place where love can prosper

In all its forms and variations.

INVOCATION:

I draw in the power of love

So I may see the potential for love in all situations and circumstances

So I may be able to love in all situations and circumstances

So love will fill my soul and exude from my body

As an aura of energy

Creating and atmosphere of love

Wherever I go.

ENCHANTMENT:

Love comes to me today

Love comes in every way

Love is the very source

Love is the way, the course

Love is the action that I take

Love is the way for its own sake

Love is the purpose

And the meaning, too

Love is the goal for all I do.

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.
