Air is the mind, the intellect of the Witch. It is the Element of movement, of freshness. Magic of this realm is mental or inertia-creating. It is used to “get something off the ground”.
Gods and Goddesses of the Air include Hera, Shu, Arianrhod, Nuit, Enlil, Mercury, Thoth.
Offerings to this Element should be thrown into the air.

    Dear Cassandra I love this display on Air since it is my symbol. I have a lot of things in common with this sign and I just wanted to tell you I lost all my photos because i had to buy another computer. But by doing that I’ve lost everything on my old computer. I still could hook my other computer up to this one but I am afraid of virus transfer. They say that Apple computers rarely get virus’ but I don’t want to risk it. I am preparing to take all new photos but it is a lazy thing. I don’t feel like taking them out of the plastic when they’ve been blessed by moon light and are prepared to be blessed for their purpose. I hope you’re not mad at me because I’ve not heard from you in a while. So please contact me back.
