Minor Arcana And Elemental Clans
This post continues the previous one and provides further information concerning Magickal Elements. While practising Planetary Magick, every Mage (depending on the properties of consciousness) finds him/herself in one of the six clans, and thus gains the ability to alter reality according to one of the six parameters.
Mages of the Elemental clan of Fire gain power over energy, using which they can realize or stop practically any process or situation.
Mages of the Elemental clan of Earth gain power over matter and are able to change the structure of substances, materialize or dematerialize objects.
Mages of the Elemental clan of Water gain power over Time. They are capable of travelling through time, shifting to past events and changing them.
Mages of the Elemntal clan of Air gain the ability to change the probable course of events and change the future. Due to this, they can create practically any event. One of the Higher abilities of Air Mages is the ability to travel between parallel worlds.
Mages of the Elemental clan of Life gain the ability to control the energy of life. By manipulating the energy of life, they can prolong or shorten the life span of any creature.
Mages of the Elemental clan of Death gain the ability to control the energy of death and to open portals to the World of the Dead. By manipulating the energy of Death, they can heal any illness or cease the life of any living thing. By opening portals to the World of the Dead, they can contact the dead and affect their posthumous existence.
The practices of controling energy are described in the Minor Arcana of the Tarot, which are part of the Sacred Book of Thoth.
The Minor Arcana are divided into 4 suits (groups). Every suit describes the technologies of working with one of the Elements.
The suit of Swords (Spades) describes how to control the Element of Fire.
The suit of Pentacles (Diamonds) describes how to control the Element of Earth.
The suit of Cups (Hearts) describes how to control the Element of Water.
The suit of Wands (Clubs) describes how to control the Element of Air.
Some Tarot decks also include the Suit of Life (Roses or Sunflowers) and the Suit of Death (Skulls).
