Element of Fire in Witchcraft

How to Use the Element of Fire in Witchcraft

Our ancestors used it to cook their food and warm their houses.  Unlike the other elements, the element of fire does not exist in a natural state.  It can only take form when it consumes the energy of another element.

The element of fire is passionate and it transforms everything in it’s path.  Candle magic is one of the simplest forms of fire magic.

The element of fire is masculine and is opposite in nature to water.  It is associated with motion and brightness.
