Everybody has one specific element that they are more in tune with. It usually corresponds with your astrology sign and what season you were born in. Some people have more of a connection to their element than others, but we all have the basic energy.
I myself am a fire symbol in every way, fire signs are usually very passionate and a bit hard headed. My love of the summertime is very connected with my element. To me, there’s nothing like a 100 degree day and the more humid the better. This comes in handy during ritual because fire scrying is a very effective way of being able to see the world from another view, like seeing the future. This technique is ancient and works best for me if I just clear my mind and gaze into the heart of a blazing fire.
Water signs are of usually natural swimmers and feel empowered when it’s raining. These are generally individuals who enjoy warm spring weather best. And they can use their energies to perform water divinations. I myself have dabbled in this technique or using a basin of water to look into the future, past, or find a broader understanding of the future.
Winter is a particularly great time of year for Earth elements. These people tend to enjoy curling up under a nice fuzzy blanket during the cold and seem to slightly hibernate. My husband is a true Earth element; he loves dark places and often burrows his head under pillows and blankets when he sleeps. I like to call it hamster syndrome. A great aspect of being an earth element is that Earth magick comes more naturally and surrounds us every day, giving Earth elements a bit of an advantage over others.
Then of course there is Air. Air elements seem happiest in the Fall, when the autumn breeze is filled with the scents of apple cider, fireplaces burning, and a cool crisp scent. I often compare water and air elements but they do have traits all their own. The powers of air elements are very ethereal. Wind magick has always been an aspect of Wicca that I highly enjoy. Most wind workings can be performed with little or no materials at all, but require the utmost concentration and precision.
All of these elements make up our planet and each person’s energies. Luckily St. Louis gives us all a taste of each different season with the power and grace that Mother Nature intended. Every year I revel in the beauty and mystery of the winter, spring, summer, and fall, with how they correspond to our elemental Earth, water, fire, and air signs.
