What’s Your Favorite Element?
Do have a special affinity for one of the elements of Earth, Air, Water or Fire? Do you find one of these easier to work with than the others? Do ritual objects or other items associated with this element just seem to find their way to you?
On the flip side, do any of these elements – or what they represent – give you trouble? (For example: If you are drawn to the Fire principle, do you struggle with the emotional or spiritual aspects related to Water?) How do you balance out the elements within yourself? If you are ‘missing’ an element (or more than one) in your astrological chart (few or no Air, Water, Earth or Fire signs), do you consciously make an effort to enhance or strengthen the influence of that missing element(s) in some way?
What symbols, tools, animals, compass direction, emotions or spiritual guidance do you associate with the elements of Earth, Air, Water and Fire? And what does Spirit represent or mean to you?

Well, since I'm not a ceremonialist, wiccan, etc.. I don't have a favorite "element" per se, the directions are different in traditional witchcraft, so sadly, I don't have a favorite.

I'm a Fire Sign, (Sag) so I suppose I can't help it. I have some interest in herbs, stones, oils, etc. but I *always* employ candles and always have to visit the candle section of any store I'm in. Orange is my favorite color.
Interestingly, I'm also very strongly drawn to Water. Love baths and showers, long for the pool and beach. Turquoise is my other favorite color, as well as my birthstone.
While I don't feel anything really stongly towards Air or Earth, I don;t feel like I am "opposed" to them or that they "work against me."

I find myself drawn towards Fire and Earth.
I resonate strongly with things associated with solar energy and Fire. Fire is warmth, protection, shielding, Life and Death. It's quite interesting that one character in my Chinese name has the character depicting 'sun'. Perhaps, with the strong identification with Fire, I also struggle with a temper.
Earth is the grounding aspect in my life and in fact, the Earth element within me finds itself at odds at times with folks who identify with Air.
One such archetype I work with is the Phoenix. Solar energy. Fire. Rebirth and renewal.
And what does Spirit mean to me? Life. Source. Ever-changing. Ever-learning.

Iam fond of all, but seem to turn more towards the earth and water elements in my workings. By nature Iam a capricorn and an earth element, I have found that most of my workings are usally for healing animals and humans.
Thank you for your time,
Love and Light
