What's My Element?

Post # 1
Actually, the idea that you have an Element isn't correct. It's something that Hollywood dreamed up in the movie, The Craft, and someone people latched onto it and it won't go away.

We are not one Element, we are composed of all of the Elements. What we truly want to do is learn to work with all of them in balance. It is true that you may find that one or two of the Elements are initially easier to work with. That isn't because they are "your Elements" but because you need to spend more time and effort learning to work with the others that are more difficult for you.

Nor is it true that "your Element" is the Element of the Sign of the Zodiac in which you were born. Anyone who does astrology can tell you that your birth sign is only a portion of what influences your life. Which Houses the other planets fall in also has great influence. Take myself for instance, I was born in Taurus, which is an Earth sign. But I also have planets that fall under Water, Air, and a lot in Fire. So again...I am NOT one Element only.

Which Elements you work with also depends in part on which forms of magic you practice. The classic Elements in Western magic are Earth, Air, Wind, and Fire. Some also add the Element of Spirit to that. In Chinese astrology and magic the Elements are Metal, Water, Wood, Fire and Earth. That's why it is important to understand what you want to work with and in which system you are working because it changes the perceptions regarding the Elements.

Thank you! I was really unsure because I made the wind blow a certain way once (it's hard to explain) and then I found out that my sign, Aquarius, is supposed to be associated with air, so I just thought it was my element! Thanks for clarification.

Actually no, the zodiac has absolutely NO influence on what type of magic a Witch practices whether we are talking about the zodiac sign of the month or the zodiacal year of Chinese astrology. A Witch is able to and should practice magic associated with ALL of the Elements. This concept of having one Element to which one is bound is a bit of Hollywood fluff that became popular following the movie The Craft. Continuing to insist that the zodiac ties you to an Element is to limit your abilities and practices.

Actually lark is right! Good post lark, it is extremely true and is actual very tasteful in facts.

However to answer the questions on zodiac signs, no your element doesn't even relate to astrology. In some beliefs?people believe that the element your zodiac symbol is associated with just makes you feel more connected to it.

Like lark said, the elements are all combined into all of us. Without one, it would not be balanced therefore we will not only have one element.

Say earth is our ground, water is emotions, air is our thought and speak, and fire is our desires and movement's, also akasha(or spirit) is what makes us complete. Various things cause confusion, and coming from lark it just proves how much we are missing.
