Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Anyone is free to write to our authors in care of Llewellyn. After we published Earth Power, author Scott Cunningham was deluged with letters. Most people wanted more "advanced" material. Of course, this was basically impossible. The natural magic Scott wrote about was simple and direct. Scott couldn't write a more advanced version, but he could write more. And that's exactly what he did in Earth, Air, Fire & Water.

Even though the first book still sells well (150,000 people use it), we didn't want people to have to buy it in order to understand this book. Therefore, Scott made Earth, Air, Fire & Water complete in itself.

That means with this book you will learn all of the basics of magic, including what you need to know to make the magic really work for you. Then you'll learn the importance of the magical elements and rituals and techniques you can do that are based on this information. This is followed by information on nine different types of natural magic that you can do for any purpose.

But my favorite part of the book is the last section. Here you will learn how to combine the information on the elements with the information on the basics of magic to create your own rituals for any purpose you can imagine! He gives over forty examples so you can see just how easy it is to design a ritual.

Scott also covers how to determine the best time to perform the ritual; how to combine the words of power or rhyme for the spell; gives a list of magical symbols; a selection of mail-order suppliers so you can get all of your magical needs; a glossary of the specialized words used in the book; and an annotated bibliography so you can know what other books you can get to further your knowledge. This is an outstanding book, and one you should have.

About the Author

Scott Cunningham practiced magic actively for over twenty years. He was the author of more than fifty books covering both fiction and non-fiction subject matter; sixteen of his titles are published by Llewellyn Publications. Scott's books reflect a broad range of interests within the New Age sphere, where he was very highly regarded. He passed from this life on March 28, 1993, after a long illness.

Format: Paperback
This book is among my favorites in my Pagan library. I have had it since it was published and have over the years bought several copies. It's either been referred to so much it's fallen apart or has been borrowed and never returned. The brilliance of Scott's teachings are that he teaches only what's worked for him but he gives permission to you as Practitioner to evolve into your own Witch - you can tweak the spells so that they work for you and he applauds that and suggests that you do just exactly that. I have always had nothing but respect for the man and his writing - and am sad that he's no longer in this world to write more and share more of his wisdom.

This is a great book to give to a new witch, one who is just starting out on their path and also for those who're perhaps more jaded and have been on their path for decades and maybe needing a reminder as to why they stepped onto this way in the first place - there's inspiration in these pages.

Also, the illustrations by Robin Wood make me want a coloring book of those pictures as well!! Stunning work all around!

Cunningham is great at writing helpful guides for beginners on the path of the Goddess. This book is no exception. The spells are simple and the ingrediants are easily found. No climbing to the top of a maple tree to get the highest leaf to throw in a stream running east. =P Don't you hate that?! ;) This book is a continuation of Earth Power, but you don't have to read that one first. This book has instructions for doing spells using each of the elements. There are also spells that use snow and stars which is rather unique. Also, there is a chapter at the end on how to write and perform your own spells! This is refreshing because it truly does help when your own energy goes into your rituals. I would also recommend Wicca: The Guide for the Solitary Practitioner by Cunningham. It is still my favorite of all time for beginners. Best of luck on your journey, and Blessed Be!

Format: Paperback
Earth, Air, Fire, and Water is a follow-up to the book Earth Power. Both are comprehensive guides to simple folk magick, which doesn't require elaborate ritual but for those who crave ritual can be easily incorporated. But the two books are not clones, nor is Earth, Air, Fire, and Water simply a padded re-release or sequel to Earth Power. They use a similar setup, and cover the same topic, folk magick, but Earth, Air, Fire, and Water is almost wholly new. It covers some of the topics discussed in Earth Power, but encompasses a range of new or related topics. Earth, Air, Fire, and Water is indespensible among Cunningham's volume of works. If you want a comprehensive guide to folk magick, and have read Earth Power (you should start with Earth Power), then Earth, Air, Fire, and Water is definitely for you. If you haven't read Earth Power, then do, and then come back for this one, you will learn, be entertained, and probably recommend this and other Scott Cunningham books to friends before too long.

For those who are into folk magick you may just love this one so much you wont be lending it out. This book will teach you about the elements and how to do spells with them. Eventually you can master the elements though some just want a freindship with them; thats your call on that one. Anyway the spells are not complicated some are quite simple. They have been effective most of the time for me. This is good for the beginner and the advanced.

Format: Paperback
I have bought many wonderful magik/Wiccan/Pagan books, and this one is the easiest, most exciting and useful. Scott Cunningham uses plain language, and explains everything very clearly and interestingly without wasting words. Each chapter is short, informative and has a variety of spells and exercises that you can do yourself (easily), along with a make-up-your-own-magik chapter. If I could only keep one of my magik books, this would be the one. I hope you'll like it as much as I do!

Earth, Air, Fire, Water was the first magick book that I purchased. Definitely money well spent. It is fun trying to make your own spells, and learn about different meanings of candles and other things. There are basic magick elements. The Elemental Profile in the beginning of the book is incredibly helpful with everything else that is magickal, or supernatural even. I use the Elements to interpret my cards and such. This book is definitely worth the money.

Format: Paperback
This is a great book for those of us who practice natural magick and like simple spells. This book is good because it also has a long chapter on how to write your own spells. Yes, this book is a sequel to "Earth Power", but it can be read and used without "Earth Power".
I like Scott Cunningham's books because they are down-to-earth and easy to read. I think that this is a must-have for all practicing Natural Magick.
I hope that this review helped you.

This book like all of Cunningham's books is just so great. People who don't like this book need to try the spells again because they probably weren't casting the spell from their heart. I have tried so many of Cunningham's spells that I have lost count and all of them have worked. If the spells that people have tried and didn't work try it from the heart because it really does make a difference.
