Using a cauldron, symbol of inspiration and rebirth, has brought new dimensions
to both group and solitary work. A cauldron decorates the center of the Circle
during Lesser Sabbats. An air cauldron at a spring rite creates a misty, magical
quality for the ceremony. In summer, the cauldron will flash and spark. A blue
flame burns mysteriously within the Water cauldron during the autumn festival.
Throughout Yule, the Earth cauldron burns steadfast and constant. During moon
rites, when magick is done, we write the purpose of our working on flash papers
and toss them into the burning cauldron while chanting. A working cauldron
should be of cast iron, with a tight-fitting lid, three sturdy legs, and a
strong handle. Season your cauldron before using it for the first time. Pour in
generous helping of salt and lighter fluid, slosh it up to the rim and wipe dry.
For indoor use it MUST have a fireproof base or your workings will summon up
yellow-coated salamander spirits from the fire department.

EARTH Cauldron

Layer salt, wax shavings, three powered or ground herbs, fighter fluid and ivy
leaves in the cauldron while focus and chanting. Use a candle to light it. When
the smoke starts to roll, extinguish the cauldron by putting the lid on.

AIR Cauldron

Using tongs, put a chunk of dry ice is a small glass or ceramic bowl and place
the bowl on a cloth in the bottom of the cauldron. Allow the cauldron to smoke
as long as the ice lasts. The mists create excellent images for scrying.

FIRE Cauldron

Cover the inside bottom with dirt or sand to dissipate heat. Light incense
charcoal and add either salt peter for flame and spark or flash powder for a
different but spectacular effect. To assist in releasing or firing off peak
energy, try using flash "bombs". Make a small pocket in a piece of flash paper,
fill with flash powder and tie with thread. The "bomb" should be about the size
of your smallest fingernail. The results are spectacularly bright, so use the
powder sparingly. Don't look directly at the flash as you drop the "bomb" in the

WATER Cauldron

At least seven days before the ritual, place equal quantities of three
appropriate herbs in a pint glass jar. Fill the rest of the jar with Everclear
(200 proof alcohol), cap tightly, and shake gently while concentrating on the
purpose of the ritual. Add a chant if it feels right. Let the jar rest in a
dark, warm spot and shake twice daily, charging with purpose. Before the ritual,
place a fireproof ceramic or glass bowl in the cauldron. Pour in the herb
mixture, being careful none spills into the cauldron. Light with a candle to
produce a beautiful blue flame.

The cauldron, as the fifth elemental spirit, symbolizes inspiration, rebirth,
illumination and rejuvenation. Use a Fire cauldron with salt peter to cast a
Circle. Use the mists of an Air cauldron for an initiation. Burn away hate,
prejudice and negative self-images, with a Water cauldron. The Earth cauldron is
ideal for indoor Beltane rites. Remember to place a burning cauldron on a
fireproof surface. Practice safety when using any volatile materials and you
will enjoy your cauldron for many rites.
