Air I draws inspiration from the Ace of Swords tarot card which denotes clarity of thought., intellectual interests, thirst for knowledge, the power of reason, good opportunity to clarify something, making sensible and clear decisions.

Sometimes our core values change or evolve, so this is a wonderful exercise to check back in with at the beginning of each year. You can post them somewhere in your workstation, dress them up and set them on your altar or paste them to your fridge so that you can be reminded on a daily basis.

Stand facing East in the posture of Air.
Call: Powers of the East!
Essence of Air!
I summon you to this sacred place!
Sylphs Sovereign Paralda, Angels, Spirit of Eagle and Guides of the windy reaches!
Be with me now and lend your powers of wisdom, imagination and communication.
Open my mind!
Awaken your power of knowing and wonderment within me.
Come wings of flight and mountain height; come golden dawning breezes light and laughter lifting to focus and inspire this magick.
Draw the invoking pentagram of air: Starting at the top right point of the star, moving left down and around back up to the top right point. See the star glowing yellow in the air of the eastern quarter. Encircle the pentagram deosil (clockwise) to unlock the gate. Draw the power in with your natural athame, like pulling a yellow streamer of light to kiss your fingers. The portal opens, the circle is flooded with elemental energy and the yellow girder encircles your sphere. Place your dominant hand on your heart and bow to the east. Say: I welcome you with gratitude. Hail and welcome!
