Please keep in mind, as I stated in an earlier post I disagree with this layout, and FOR ME change Air & Earth, as that makes more sense TO ME, and works FOR ME. IF it makes sense to you, you could consider trying it during your next casting. HOWEVER, I wouldn't recommend this if you don't feel it is RIGHT...Magic works because we believe it works, and who knows how it may go awry if you don't believe every bit of what you are using is right..?
I have tried to link to information on as many of the Zodiac Signs/plants/Spirits/Jewels/Goddesses/Gods as I could find, for those interested in more information on any of them.
PS Sorry it's so late getting up...it took FOREVER to get it just right... *grin*
