A Look at Practical Magic, Alchemy Magic and Fairy Magic
While various types of magic are very well known and talked about three types of magic are somewhat less well known. These three types are practical magic, alchemy magic and fairy magic. They are practiced the world over and many find them to be fascinating as well as fun and useful. This article will talk about each of the three in turn and explain a little about their various uses and unique charms and influence with those who practice them.
Practical magic, is essentially a natural method of performing magic spells and magic. Rather than being other worldly, difficult to understand and far fetched, it is useful and abides by the laws of the feminine. Practical magic often uses various herbs, rites and rituals that have been practiced throughout the ages by witches in time honored traditions. The seasons, the Earth, nature and the moon and sun play important roles in the use of practical magic. For instance many spells cannot be preformed unless the moon is full, waxing or waning or should be cast during certain seasons such as Autumn or during the Winter or Summer solstice. Using the power of the earth produces amazing results and is considered the most natural way to involve oneself with magic and magical practices. Practical magic is also the subject of a novel of the same name which was later turned into a movie starring Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidmann. If you are interested in magic in general you may want to investigate practical magic and the various intricacies of this art in further depth.
Alchemy magic is very ancient, never-the-less very few people who have heard of or even practice magic have ever heard of this form of mysticism. Alchemy is considered both a form of magic as well as a type of ancient science. During its inception it included the in depth study of nature as well as philosophical and spiritual disciplines; in this regard it is similar to practical magic in that it uses nature as its basis of investigation and practice. Alchemy magic has its roots in Egyptian and Greek cultures of the seventieth century. It is considered one of the oldest forms of magical and spiritual practices known to civilized man. Some ancient alchemists were very devoted to the idea that common materials could be turned into gold and attempted this with great vigor. Other respected alchemists were more devoted to the study of nature and specifically the composition of minerals, rocks and metals found in the Earth. During the Middle Ages a strong movement concerning alchemy magic and spirituality began to evolve. It was during this time that alchemists from all over the world, particularly in Europe, began to search for a substance called the Philosopher’s Stone. This high profile alchemy magic was said to increase the owner’s knowledge of alchemy magic, amplify their spiritual understanding and, most interestingly, give eternal life to any who drank from it. Alchemy magic is very interesting and worth learning more about.
Fairy magic is the last topic of discussion in this article. Fairy magic is certainly the most imaginative and fun of the three. Fairies are nothing new to those who are interested in mystical creatures and lore. Many cultures throughout the world have spoken, written about and created art that depict fairies and their special brand of magic. The Irish culture and Celtic traditions are often heavily steeped with fairy lore and history of fairy magic. While many people in modern culture are familiar with fairies, fairy magic is somewhat less well known to the masses. It was and is a common belief amongst many people that fairies would provide wishes and offer magical aid to those who sought it from them. There is a considerable amount of Celtic lore on the subject of winning over a fairy so that she will gladly give forth her magic to kind and decent people. This type of magic is as intriguing as practical magic and alchemy magic is and well worth investigating further.
