What is Magick?
Power Points in Space
Power Points in Time
The Magick of Earth settles vagueness, confusion and illusion into something specific and defined by clear limits. Limitations, enforced and imposed by strong boundaries, bring the mind into focus so that it can operate at its most effective level, without distractions or ambiguity.
In the physical dimension, the two defining features are time and place, so when, and only when, we can specify these parameters, is it possible to effect changes that have real impact - that impact reality. In other words, we need to know WHAT we are doing and WHERE and WHEN we are doing it.

The Magick of Air directs a focussed mind with exemplary clarity. Mind is what directs the life force into a particular expression, and thus is the agency through which desire, or will, is made manifest as reality. However, mind is mercurial, and impossible to bring completely under control for very long; it is as capricious as the wind. Exceptional ability to concentrate attention is a requirement in this work because energy is held to its purpose by mind alone. It is dangerous to raise energy which you cannot control.
Techniques have been developed over thousands of years by which we can train the mind along a give, disciplined, track of thought. Airy-fairy, silly ideas about magical processes create nothing of benefit and can even be rather disruptive to the mental health of a casual practitioner of the craft.

Knowledge of Breath
Power of Beauty
Consciousness of Crystals
A common misconception is that power is more a masculine expression and, even when wielded by women, takes the form of directed will and dominance. Yet softness and grace are very often the most effective tools for change since these are likelier to win the support of others by diminishing resistance and triggering trust and inspiration.
However sharp the mind may be, its train of thought can very easily be disturbed by emotionality - hence the need to master the various aspects of breathing. Control the breath, control the emotions. Beauty, despite its reputation for being subjectively in the eye of the beholder, has universal particularities that can be studied. One example, a way to know of beauty, is by opening the heart to crystal consciousness. This can be a stepping-off point by which the heart learns how to perceive beauty as present in all places at all times.

Energy and matter are interchangeable and the transformation, one to the other, is the fiery process called alchemy. Historical alchemists attempted this process in the physical sense of changing lead to gold, yet today the word alchemy refers to a more subtle-level shift in consciousness that brings about real changes - first on a psychological level and then in scenarios and life circumstances.
Typically this involves cathartic processes of release, until the practitioner is clear emotionally, and after which thee is a more immediate ability to cause changes in the world.

Elven Star Magick is: consciously experiencing the knowledge of 7
The knowledge of 7 runs throughout our lives mostly unobserved. Those who seek it will find it; those who do not will probably not. Most ancient stargazers would have seen but 6 moving lights in the sky, and only the curious, studious, constant observers would notice Mercury because it was mostly too close to the Sun, whose glare was strong.
Similarly, most of the curious students of magick are not sufficiently curious, nor steadfast, nor willing to be guided. They do not find the 7th mystery because they render this sacred art into something silly or unattainable, dark or unreal. It is none of these things to the sincere and dedicated student.
The Elven Star is also called the Faerie Star and conjures up the atmosphere of non-physical realms populated by beings of light, faerie folk, elves and unicorns. Its reality is non-physical so it has to be accessed by carefully training the heart and mind into new attitudes of perception. Yet there must be an interface, or we could not have knowledge of that realm; and we do. Here, we study that interface: the way to walk the path of 7 and still act as a coordinated, physical being whose ability to operate in the normal world is not compromised – but indeed masterful.
a) to affirm that who-we-are comprises 7 distinct aspects, and
b) to learn how to live with awareness of all 7 simultaneously.
This is the mystery of Elven Star.
Techniques, understandings and life choices underpin our commitment to walk such a path. These are studied as we further our willingness to practise magick. The material included on this website and video series is but a taste of the feast, the subjective preferences and experiences of one commentator. Still, it’s a start and will take any serious student forward towards their goal.
