Storm Magick Correspondences, Dos & Don’ts
Storm Magick is one of the oldest forms of magick and was practiced by Ancient Egyptians. Over the centuries, witches have been blamed for causing storms to thwart monarchs and armies or destroy crops. Of course, these women and men were simply the scapegoats for natural phenomena that couldn’t be explained. The intent of Storm Magick is not to create or cause a storm, but instead to tap into its energy.
Storm Magick is a powerful practice related to the element of air, and you can use it to add a burst of manifestation energy to your spells. You can also tap into a storm’s power to charge your tools and magickal jewelry.
Storm Magick Dos and Don’ts
Before we dive into Storm Magick, let’s take a little time to discuss some dos and don’ts. Storm Magick can be a chaotic practice, and we want to make sure you’re safe.
Do prepare ahead of time! Storms can be unpredictable, so take some time to plan for your supplies and have an open mind.
Don’t get too caught up in how you think the storm should be. Remember, some powerful electric storms may produce no rain. Be sure to think outside the box and embrace sand and snowstorms too!
Do thank the storm. Giving an herbal offering to the storm while outside is a beautiful way to show your gratitude to both the storm and Mother Earth.
Don’t put yourself in physical danger! Use good judgment if thunder and lightning, hail, extremely high winds, or tornadoes are close. You can still practice Storm Magick inside, and better safe than sorry.
Do remember that storm magick is naturally unstable. You can’t control the storm or its effects, so it can be chaotic. Storm Magick is sometimes one of those “be careful what you wish for” practices.
Don’t try to harness the storm or control the weather. Leave that to Hollywood. Instead, your intent should be to harness or connect to the storm’s energy.
Do remember that storm magick is neutral. It’s not light or dark. What you do with the energy is up to you.
Don’t perform magick when you’re unstable emotionally, mentally, or physically. You must be calm and grounded during your practice, otherwise, the storm will sweep you away.
