In natural magic, feathers are used in
spells and ceremonies to promote change.
They are used as catalysts to help focus

The medicine bag, also called power pouch
or sachet, often includes special feathers
which have meaning to the wearer and help
attracting good luck as well as driving
away bad things. Equally, wands and many
other ritual tools use feathers for the
same purpose.

Feathers are magically ruled by the element
of air. This makes them good communication
helpers. But each feather can also hold
other special powers; depending on the bird
from whom it came, its colour, place of
discovery and other factors.

The knowledge of what kind of feather is
best used for what kind of indent can only
be found out for oneself by trial and error. A pigeon feather is not as helpful for creating a defence strategy than a feather taken from a bird of prey.

Feathers are often used to focus
concentration in spells.
Basically all feathers can be used for any
spell; they can either attract or repel
energy. But their colour gives them an
additional specific energy which should
also be chosen in accordance with the
desired outcome of the spell. Naturally
coloured feathers are far more powerful

candles are used in conjunction with
feathers to give additional strength to
the spell.

Feathers used for magical undertakings are
mainly determined by the energy which is
brought into the feather by the user
through concentration and thought.
In addition to the energy the user
brings into the object, feathers hold
certain natural abilities
