What is my element?
By:
Post # 1
I was born on 6 march 2001 I used to be depressed I can get very moody I have ginger hair. I play with fire a lot and I find it fascinating, I like swimming an feel relaxed in the water and I love nature and fight for the environment. I dunno if I need to say anything else but I really want to know why my element is cuz I'm stuck between water, fire and earth(not air I don't feel anything towards it)

As a Witch, you strive to work with all elements. Therefore, you do not "have" any one element. We are made of all elements. However, while one may have an affinity for an element, this does not mean that the element is theirs, and that it was a birthright.

You should take a test to know more about your element. If you like playing with fire, it doesn't mean your element is fire. If you feel very relaxed with water, it doesn't mean your element is water. Sometimes it depends on your birthdate or your personality.

You were born March 6, I believe that makes your star sign a Pices. That in turns says your element is water. Hope this is what you were look for.

And yet birth date or personality doesn't necessarily mean all that much either in determining "your element." It all depends on what tradition you are borrowing the concept from. In traditional western magical practices, you do not have an element. You may be influenced by celestial bodies that are predominately influenced by various elements, or otherwise have a similar factor involved, but you are otherwise generally composed of all of the elements. That element which you are most comfortable with provides you with the place to start in your exploration of all four.

quickest way that I know of for that are rather focused forms in martial arts, now I myself am deeply rooted in earth but with fairly strong water.
Now if you want to use this method you will need something to punch(backpack filled with something soft) some open space and a training partner that will realistically describe how it feels.
Characteristics that you need to look in yourself during all this are:
Water- fluidity of movement that just seams to drain energy from your opponent and keeps you fluidly out of your opponents grasp, defense is based on parrying and using his power against him, for punch both with fist and palm they will feel almost weak/soft but will travel far(almost like pushing) and leave your opponent feeling drained(aikido or tai chi).
Earth- movements are somewhat rigid, and are not fast but are not slow either. Defense is just like movement rigid and firm and relies heavily on blocking or just bulldozing through enemies attack. Punch with fist and open palm are both firm and heavy but somewhat shallow(karate or judo).
Air- movements are fast, fluid but short, defense is mostly dodging with some misdirection of there attacks, punch is superficial and with much speed but little power(Wing Chun or something similar).
Fire- movements are fast and meant to cover good distance with one or two steps although somewhat rigid, defense is a more aggressive version of one used by Air, punch is meant to not hit the target before you but the behind the horizon(basically punch through you enemy)(forms most suited for this element are box and muay thai).
Forms that are most comfortable for you to use are generally like that because your element is aligned the most with them(considering that your element influences your personality and by association you body).
Oh almost forgot breathing during this test must be as close as possible to one you use during meditation.
But if I had to guess you are probably Water with Wind as strong second(bit of Intel most people have Water as either there first or second).
On the other hand this test is best suited for Martial arts practitioners so it could be wrong to determine spiritual element.

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.

Sorry to say this but I disagree with all of you. Everyone has a element or 2, 3, 4, and sometimes even all 5. It's why all of us are different from one another. The element that you have is the one that you feel in your heart. Not the one people tell you. You have to find it. And btw in different ways of practice you need a element. The use is for circles. So not to be mean but find your own path. Don't follow what others tell you.
