Finding my element
Post # 1
I'm looking for a way to find my one and true element I've did practice fire spells before but then I felt a type of "calling" to the others like water and wind so I have three questions to ask
1. Is there a way to find your own element
2. If you find your element lets say fire does that mean I can't practice wind or water spells
3. Are the sun and moon part of the elements

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.

People do not have a "one and true element". You might have an affinity for a particular one over all others, but that's it. There is no one and only element. You can work magic with all four elements or however many elements might be in your particular cosmological structure.

As the people above said, you have no single element. They are all your elements. You can practice any spells you like, but if they involve controlling the elements, they won't work. The sun and (I think) the moon fall under the category of Quintessence in Aristotle's cosmology.
