Hi there, thank you. The video will be the first of its kind, as I haven’t met another Taoist Weather Magician before, I’m working on filming a full ritual so people can see the entire process. (Its kind of hard when your camera isn’t water or weather proof!)
With this art it is important to keep in mind the three main categories of power, there exists The Magical Powers of Man, meaning magick that comes from the self. The Magical Powers of Earth, meaning magick that involves nature, mountains, stones, crystals, these people work with the Stars, the Moon and the Sun to generate their magick. Finally there is The Magical Powers of Heaven for those who work with gods, spirits, entities. Eventually you will master all three but since you are new to the Taoist school of thought, I’d say pick one and focus on it.
Weather Magick can be done in many different ways, for example, if you want to bring rain to your local area to end drought, you can do this by CREATING rainclouds through magick or by BORROWING them from another location. Creating the clouds out of a clear sky is more difficult, borrowing them is quicker but more risky. The universal law states that whatever you borrow you must return, I’ve heard horror stories of foolish magicians who did not learn the art of returning the clouds back to their original places and it caused chaos within that place, so be considerate of the bigger picture and the environment.
I would recommend you start by researching the Taoist Hand Seals and Incantations, the hand seals are based on The Eight Trigrams of the Bagua, you’ve probably seen the Bagua before, well each trigram corresponds to a different type of weather pattern so for example, if you wanted to summon an Eastern wind, you should use the Zhen Bagua Hand Seal whilst speaking an incantation. I’ll give you one that I use often to summon wind “The Winds Shall Follow Effortlessly! Blowing Through Every Limb Of Tree!” said in a very commanding and clear voice. Hope this helps you!
