Who are the Guardians? Well depending on who you ask you will get a few different answers. But ultimately they are the watchers of the four elements. Some may see them as angelic spirits or daemonic spirits or what have you. But I tend to see them as Dragons whom watch over, observe, guard and protect their domains and all they are connected to according to what element they preside over.
These dragons are sacred to Hecate as her chariot is directed by Dragons. Hecate is a goddess whom fills in the blanks so to speak so that we may receive and understand the larger picture when it comes to our ritual and spell work as well as everything ‘in between’. So it makes sense that our Goddess Hecate would be the one to provide… the Directions. Corners, Quarters, Guardians… etc, by whatever name you call them. They are the same.
The main four elements are as follows, Earth, Air, Fire, and Water. And these four are what we will cover for this portion of the topic. I will connect a link to another page that will dive further into the other directions but for this page we will only be discussing the elements that are guarded by Hecate’s Dragons.
Meet the North Direction Guarded by the Earth Dragon!
The Earth element is associated with, obviously, Mother Earth. It is the element which one will find the most grounding energy. If you seek stability, or an awakening of the heart chakra as well as the Root, Earth elementals are the best to work with. This element is associated with practical tree magick. So its understandable to why it is associated with the gnomes and dryads of the fairie world. There is much fertile energy for one to bury the seeds of a new beginning or project.
Other Associations: Death/Rebirth, Cycles, Change, Lessons of Time, animals, home, wealth, crops, Pentacle, Rock, Hammer, Salt, Shield, Drum.
