Irish-American Witchcraft: Why I Don’t Think Plastic Wards Against Fairies | by Morgan Daimler

Morgan Daimler, my authority for all things concerning the fey clarifies some ideology about iron protecting us from certain faeries… This is an excellent discussion.

There’s currently a thing going around some corners of social media suggesting that fairies are now averse to plastic instead of iron. I am genuinely concerned about this idea spreading particularly in American paganism which always tends to pick up on ideas from fiction and gaming and apply them to belief.

  1. This was important: “One possible reason given for the effectiveness of iron is the process that goes into its working, that is that there is some inherent apotropaic magic in turning iron ore into iron products. Another is that iron is simply protective against some spirits by its nature; the word for iron is rooted ultimately in words meaning holy, powerful, and strong*. A third is that iron is effective because it is the least electrically conductive metal next to lead and that it therefore grounds magical energy as well**; fairies as more magically in tune or natured beings would therefore be averse to a grounding element or one which disrupts their magic…”
