Earth, our lush home and our protector provides us with warmth, sanctuary and food. It is the northern most element, that despite its fertile energy, is the season of winter and the time of deep night. So, what does Earth Magick look like? It can be used for multiple purposes from something as simple as a house plant blessing to something slightly more complex. Primarily earth magick rules gardening, magnet, stone, tree, knot, binding, hearth and home magick. We have the words but what does these spells look like?

Let’s look at knot magick first, one of my favorite types of magick and one I think should be used more often. When it comes to knot magick, you can use it from everything to binding to releasing. Colors play an important role in knot magick, so that is something that you are going to want to know and perhaps even numerology as it can play a key in knot magick. One of the most well-known knot magicks is considered to be a witches ladder; a string or strings that is knotted nine times. Which can be seen down below.

Another type of earth magick is stone magick. Stones are the bones of the earth and every stone, no matter the “value” of the stone, can be used for earth magick. If you want to perform stone magick with pebbles picked up from the side of the road? Rock that shit out. Do not be fooled into thinking that you must pick up expensive stones from a store to perform. When you wish to use stones, just as with any magick, you can imbue with your energy or you can write your intentions on them. Stones can also used for scrying. I, myself have a beautiful set of amethyst rune stones and let us not forget our crystal balls. The only limitations are those that you place on yourself when it comes to stone magick.

If you wish to use tree magick, this will require some memorizing, just like herbs, to remember their meanings or you can just write things down…..write things down, I do. Some common trees and their meanings can be found below. This by no means is a complete list, that would be epic, but is just a few common trees that can be found in the USA.
