This altar is gently composed in front of a wall made of wood planks.

Our 2021 Theme: Elemental Magic

This year we will be exploring the magic of the elements! This theme, submitted by our beloved Pigeon (aka: Pidge Fletching) will be woven into the rituals, skill shares, conversation on Discord, and magic we invoke throughout the 2021 cycle.

We are in the process of conjuring accessible community events during the pandemic!

A safe container is very important to us. While we know that public rituals and human contact are desired by our members, it is imperative that we honor the CDC’s guidelines at this time. This means staying home, choosing not to attend large public gatherings, and wearing a mask over our noses and mouths to help prevent the spread of Covid-19.

The gift of this theme is that all of these elements can be found within our immediate surroundings. Here are a few ideas of things you can do to begin creating our sacred container for this year’s magic. Your contributions are important and necessary for the magic of the whole!

Create altars of found objects that inspire a deeper connection to earth, air, fire, water, and spirit. Spells and change begin in these sacred spaces.

Allow your awareness to focus on a single element or a couple of them for a few moments when they catch your attention. Breathe, touch, feel, create, and be present in those precious spaces of potential.

Chat with the people you love about air quality, ocean discoveries, permaculture, campfire songs and the causes that you care about. Talk about the elements in their physical and mythic forms to connect to with their potency.

Dream of the magic to come in 2021 as all of the simple, yet intentional choices we make this year influence the whole. Seen or unseen: what we do matters. The elements are the allies here to support us!

Do you have other ideas of how we, the Reclaiming Pittsburgh community, might invoke the elements during these challenging times? We would love to hear from you! Comment below to stir the pot and join our collective elemental story as it begins to simmer…
