Elemental Cauldrons

cauldronsElemental Cauldrons

Ways to use a cauldron for Wiccan magick, Sabbat celebrations, and to attune to the energies of the four magical elements, Fire, Water, Air, and Earth.

The cauldron represents, among other things, the "fifth" element Spirit, and symbolizes inspiration, rebirth, illumination, and rejuvenation.

Elemental cauldrons can be used many ways. Use a Fire cauldron with salt petter to cast a circle. Use the mists of an Air cauldron for an initiation. Burn away hate, prejudice, and negative self-images, with a Water cauldron. The Earth cauldron is ideal for indoor Beltane rites.

You can use elemental cauldrons to decorate the center of the circle during Lesser Sabbats. An air cauldron at a Spring rite creates a misty, magical quality for the ceremony. In Summer, the cauldron will flash and spark. A blue flame burns mysteriously within the Water cauldron during the Autumn festival. Throughout Yule, the Earth cauldron burns steadfast and constant. During Moon rites, when magick is done, write down the purpose of the working on paper and toss it into the burning cauldron while chanting.

A working cauldron should be cast iron, with a tight-fitting lid, three sturdy legs, and a strong handle. Season your cauldron before using it for the first time. Pour in generous helping of salt and lighter fluid, slosh it up to the rim and wipe dry. Remember to place a burning cauldron on a fireproof surface.

Earth Cauldron

Layer salt, wax shavings, three powered or ground herbs, lighter fluid, and ivy leaves in the cauldron while focusing and chanting. Use a candle to light it. When the smoke starts to roll, extinguish the cauldron by putting the lid on.

Air Cauldron

Using tongs, put a chunk of dry ice in a small glass or ceramic bowl and place the bowl on a cloth in the bottom of the cauldron. Allow the cauldron to smoke as long as the ice lasts. The mists create excellent images for scrying.

Fire Cauldron

Cover the inside bottom with dirt or sand to dissipate heat. Light incense charcoal and add either salt petter for flame and spark or flash powder for a different but spectacular effect. To assist in releasing or firing off peak energy, try using flash "bombs". Make a small pocket in a piece of paper, fill with flash powder, and tie with thread. The "bomb" should be about the size of your smallest fingernail. The results are spectacularly bright, so use the powder sparingly. Don't look directly at the flash as you drop the "bomb" in the cauldron.

Water Cauldron

At least seven days before the ritual, place equal quantities of three appropriate herbs in a pint glass jar. Fill the rest of the jar with Everclear (200 proof alcohol), cap tightly, and shake gently while concentrating on the purpose of the ritual. Add a chant if it feels right. Let the jar rest in a dark, warm spot and shake twice daily, charging with purpose. Before the ritual, place a fireproof ceramic or glass bowl in the cauldron. Pour in the herb mixture, being careful none spills into the cauldron. Light with a candle to produce a beautiful blue flame.
