To tymej (sorry if i spelt it wrong)- I am an aries too :D April 17, actually! Our element is fire and colour obviously red. Although many refer to their zodiac sign for their element, this isn't always the best thing to do. Just because i am an aries, it doesn't mean that fire represents ME best. I look the system as elements being related to the majority of people under that star sign. I for one seem to connect most with air although i am not certain. But i don't believe that fire is my element- as much as i like messing with it, it may not be mine. XP. If you truly want to find your element, i suggest that you work with all the different elements. Meditate in an environment with mostly earth, air, fire, or water there. Or you can meditate on an object to represent the element- for example air- feather, water- bowl or glass of water, fire- candle, earth- rocks, crystals or simply dirt/soil. Elements are not a 'hoax' but rather a very strong part of magick and many different religions. I wish you luck in finding your own element/s (forgot to mention, but one person can have more than a single element. For example i could feel closest to both fire and air) and that i have helped you understand the elements more.
