Metal Magick

Properties of some common metallic elements and their uses for metal magick in rituals and spells.

ALUMINUM *Projective/Mercury/Air/Male
Aluminum is the most abundant metallic element on the earth and the moon. 8% of the earth`s crust is composed of aluminum in some form. Almost all rocks contain aluminosilicate minerals. The human body also contains traces of aluminum.
Powers Of Aluminum: A conductor of electricity.
Magick Uses: A Modern metal with no magick history. Aluminum foil can be used to fashion shapes for image magick.
BOJI STONES *Projective/Mars/Fire/*Akasha
Powers Of Boji Stones: Protection/Healing/Psychic Power
Magickal Uses:Use for grounding and healing by holding the stone in your hand while visualizing. Use these stones to protect and strengthen your psychic defenses.
Balance: Wear to balance energies within the body

Powers Of Brass:Healing/ Money/Protection
Associated Deities: Sun deities
Magick Uses: Brass can be used as a substitute for gold for money attracting magick rituals and spells. A simple money attracting *talisman that can easily be made is to inscribe a pentagram on a small piece of brass and carry it with you at all times. Brass is used for sun magick and fire magick rituals and spells. Sun magick spells used to attract wealth and money should be performed at sunrise. Because brass has protective attributes it is used for defensive magick to protect and send back negativity to the sender. Brass jewelry is worn for this purpose during such rituals.

COPPER (Cu/cuprum) *Receptive/Venus/Water/Female
The human body contains traces of copper.
Powers Of Copper: Conductor of electricity/Healing/Love/Luck/Protection
Associated Deities: Ishtar, Aphrodite and Astarte, and other Goddesses associated with Venus.
Magick Uses: Copper is used to make wands to direct energy during ritual. It is also worn during ritual to increase the direction of energy towards the desired goal. Pure copper is also worn for healing and to prevent sickness. It is said that copper should be worn on the opposite side of your dominate hand. For example, if you are right handed then wear copper on your left side. Because it is associated with the planet Venus it is also worn to attract love. It is highly effective for attracting love when copper is combined with emeralds.
Balance: Copper has the ability to balance the polarity`s of the body, this is why copper is used to heal and prevent sickness. Copper balances the flow of energies in the body, both receptive and projective. When a person feels ill, it is believed that the energies in the body are not in balance or are blocked and copper is worn to balance these energies and stimulate the natural healing of the body.
WARNING: In the book, Metalen En Hun Effecten, Roos Leffebure(Dutch), Copper has a physical effect as well as an emotional effect. If worn for too long the physical effect can result in bluish of the skin with a smell, headaches and an unstable heart rhythm. The emotional effect is like silver, it produces emotional instability if worn for too long.

A substitute for gold to use in money attracting spells is Pyrite( also known as Fool`s Gold)
I like to wear a piece of amber shaped heart on a small gold bracelet at times when I need to increase my chances of success with a particular situation.

PREHNITE Spiritual powers: Dreaming and remembrance. Enhances one's protective field. Brings peace and calm. Healing attributes: Builds the immune system. Useful for anemia for blood disorders. Clearly the color and unusual touch generate a serenity and tranquillity uncommon even in the typical stress release stones. This is a most powerful stone. Has been used to aid in remembering dreams. Rub Prehnite just before going to sleep and ask for assistance in lucid dreaming. Due to its ability to rapidly move one into the other world, Prehnite has long been used as a secret stone of Shaman's. Because it can carry one into both the sub-conscious and the earth's astral it has become known as the "Prediction Stone", and as such is much in demand by channelers.
Do not take Prehnite lightly. Before you go contacting entities make sure you have some understanding how to let them go, how to ascertain that you are truly in touch with the same energy (entity), and that you have some knowledge in limiting the vital life force any discarnate entity can absorb from you. Prehnite is par excellence for visualizations of any kind. It provides a smooth transition into meditation. One of the top stones available for self-hypnosis and auto-suggestion. In healing, Prehnite has been used to reduce high blood pressure and control hypertension. We have recently found that this remarkable stone can be used to balance meridians and also to activate (balance) acupuncture and acupressure points.

SILVER (Ag/argentum)*Receptive/moon/water/Female
Power Of Silver: Intuition/Emotions/Psychic Mind/Dreams/Love/Protection/Invocation of the Goddess

Magick Uses: Use for water magick, scrying, divination, dreams, rituals invoking the Goddess and love and healing spells. Silver reflects negativity away. Silver influences the psychic mind increasing your chances for psychic dreams and enhancing intuition. Silver can be used for scrying. Take a piece of silver with you outside on a full moon and allow the silver to catch the reflection of the moon. Silver is also associated with the stones, Lapis Lazuli, Jade, Pearl and Emerald. When one of these stones are used together with silver as in a piece of jewelry it is used to attract love. Wear silver to sleep with a stone such as moonstone to enhance psychic dreams.
Balance: If wearing too much silver overwhelms you and makes you emotionally overwhelmed, try wearing gold with it to balance out. This particular problems occurs with me if I wear silver for too long. I therefore just take off my silver bracelet and rings for a few days.

Magick Uses: A modern metal without history of magick use. Since it is a projective metal it is used today for defensive magick to deflect negative energies away. Steel knives are used either through visualization or physically held while visualizing negative impulses and all negative energies away from yourself. Afterwards take the knife and place it under your mattress to symbolically serve as protection and to block negative energies from disturbing your thoughts at night. A steel knife used in this manner is for symbolism and visualization. Use caution when handling a knife.

Metals have a long history of use in magic. One of the most common uses is the engraving of planetary talismans and other sorts of talismans on circles or squares of the metal that corresponds to the intent. This will be a rather short section, containing the planetary correspondences for metals and some of their traditional magical uses. Most of the metals are those that have been around for a long time rather than modern discoveries, and most are readily available except for mercury which is very poisonous and in any case is liquid at room temperature which makes it quite difficult to engrave anything on it. Substitute aluminum for mercury.
