Woden's Day - Mercury Day, the Day of Communication and Connection....there are minor magickal energies today for doing divination and working elemental magick.
Air, from the gentlest breeze to the strongest wind, represents our thoughts, and therefore the beginning and planning stages of all actions. Air is represented in the Circle by the direction of East, and the color yellow. It is the Season of Spring and the morning.
Fire, whether the flame of a candle or the brilliance of the Sun, is our passions and enthusiasms, our strongest energies and the aspect which makes us decide to carry out our plans. Its direction is South, its color is red. It is Summer and the afternoon.
Water, from the tiniest drop to the oceans, is our emotions, feelings, tears and laughter, the part which imbues a project with feeling. Its direction is West and its color blue. It is Autumn and the evening.
Earth, the soil, rocks and mountains, is our physical body and the physical realm; it is putting plans into action. Its direction is North, the place of power, its color is green. It is Winter and the night.
Spirit is the Goddess and the God; it is the spark of life. It is the self within and our individuality. It is the center of the Circle and is represented by the colors violet, white and many others. It is all seasons and all times of day.
As Kate West says: "Unbalanced magick is like a chair with a short leg: wobbly."
