AIR FAERIES
AIR FAERIES ENERGIES ARE SUBTLE , QUICK AND FLUID.
WINGED FAERIES ARE THE SOULS MESSENGERS, REPRESENTING THE SPIRIT FREED FROM THE MUNDANE. ALL STORMS AND WINDS ARE ASSOCIATED WITH AIR SPIRITS, FROM GENTLE 
BREEZES TO TO GREAT DESTRUCTIVE TORNADOS. A WHIRLWIND IS AN AIR SPIRIT UPTO NO GOOD!

EL NUMBERO (THE TEMPEST) IS A SPANISH WEATHER FAERY- AN UGLY CREATURE IN ANIMAL SKINS WHO RIDES UPON THE CLOUDS AND CAUSES STORMS. 
A BURMESE FAERY CALLED MBON IS RESPONSIBLE FOR WINDS BOTH FAIR AND FOUL.

IN FINLAND , THE ANCIENT UKKO IS THE OLD MAN OF WEATHER PHENOMENA, COMMANDING THE WIND AND RAIN, FOG AND STORMS, THUNDER AND LIGHTNING.
GREMLINS ARE MODERN ADDITIONS TO FAERY FAMILY - ACTUALLY IN ANCIENT TIMES THEY WERE CALLED FLYING IMPS. THEY ARE NOISY AND DESPISED BY FAERIES,
WHO TRAVEL EFFORTLESSLY, PROPELLED BY THOUGHT AND EMOTION RATHER THAN THE WHRRR OF MACHINES .

AIR FAERIES OFTEN TAKE THE SHAPE OF BIRDS. IN THE PHILIPPINES ISLANDS, THE "ALAN FAERY SPIRITS" WHO APPEAR ARE HALF HUMAN AND HALF BIRD.
THEY HANG BAT-LIKE FROM FOREST TREES - AND ALTHOUGH HOSTILE THEY CAN BE HELPFUL TO THOSE IN NEED.

THE FLYING FAERIES OF THE AIR ELEMENT ARE IN GENERAL AN EVOLVED FAERY FORM, FOR THEY INCORPORATE ASPECTS OF ALL FOUR BASIC ELEMENTS. 
THE WINGS OF THESE FAERIES ARE SYMBOLIC OF AIR ,THIER HUMAN LEGS REPRESENTING EARTH, THE LUMINOUS SHIMMERING QUALITY IS FIRE AND SHAPE SHIFTNING REPRESENT WATER. 
THUS THEY MAKE A BALANCED CONNECTION BETWEEN THE FOUR ELEMENTS.
