One of the best I've read this year...

This book is one of "those" for me: it brought together so many pieces. Upon finishing it, I had a holistic picture of the four elements as applied in many areas of metaphysics, including astrology and tarot, and in medicine and sacred wheels used in many spiritual traditions. Margie covers so much, from the five platonic solids of sacred geometry to chinese medicine and the tao, to archangels. She even has recipes! Her discussion of the four elements is the most in-depth and informative I've ever come across. I've been studying metaphysics for over 17 years, and this book was the one that gave me what I was missing re: fire, earth, air and water. She also discusses elementals, which I've been curious about. Her style is companionable. Her meditations are doable - and I really have trouble in that department. Do yourself a favor: get this one!

An impressive "must have" for your bookshelf!

This book has information regarding the elements that I have not seen anywhere else. Insightful, and creative, the content of this book appeals to both to the beginning and intermediate student of the occult. I went on the suggested journeys and found them well thought out, highly interesting, and came back with information about each direction that I had not been aware of in my 20 years as a Priestess. No serious student or teacher of the occult arts should be without this book.

Best book about the Elements.

An eclectic and personal study of the Elements this book is the best on the subject since Scott Cunningham's EARTH POWER. Actually more complete, more full of exercises and of much greater depth that Mr. Cunningham's book, it is the next step in our understanding of the elements. Material derived from many cultures, all of which Ms. McArthur has personal knowledge of, enlightened the reader about the universiality of elemental expressions. The exercises very accurately actualized the essence of each element. This is a good reference book for creating ritual and interacting with the powers of Nature. I've already given out 4 copies to friends.


I found this amazing little book quite by accident, and what a fortuitous accident! This book cuts right to the heart of things - a human's relationship with the basic elements of life - in a way that is practical, relevant, heart warming, and mentally satisfying. Though this is not a book that purports to be about shamanism, the world view this book puts forth is indeed that of the shaman, who acknowledges his/her relationship to "all that is." Or perhaps it would be more accurate to state that this book manages to reach beyond titles and labels such as shamanism, neopaganism, witchcraft, buddhism, or any of them, to the deep secrets of acknowledging one's intimate relationship to the very forces that shape body, mind and spirit.

Deep and thorough

This is the one of the best books I've seen on this subject. The author provides deep and thoughtful explanations of the powers of the Four Elements of Air, Fire, Water and Earth, in a way that is both magically and practically useful. The book includes magical and spiritual correspondences for each element, as well as exercises, ideas for altars, information on the chakras, and an intriguing section on dreamwork. The book is well written and organized, making it easy to find just what you're looking for.
