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?

Okay, I am a major pyromaniac. I am always playing with fire or trying to catch something on fire. However, my affinity would have to be with the earth. I have always loved the feel of rolling down a grassy hill or taking a break and just lying down in a field, away from the world. I am always trying to protect and conserve the natural lands in my area. So I would side with earth every time.

As a born water I must say water is my favorite element. Just think about it, we are all made up of a certain amount of water. Water gives life and water takes life.

As a born pyro, I'd have to say fire. I'm infamous for always having something burning. From candles and incense to something on the stove. :) When there are bonfires I'm always catching a stick or something on fire just to watch it burn. People find this odd...because I'm a pisces, a water sign. =P
White I've had a tendency to learn for my love for the flame, I try to keep myself balanced by taking baths, going swimming, or fishing. I try to garden (key word: try) . As the only computer/techno literate person in my house, I'm in constant exposure to electricity (some say it's a form of air) . But I still love my pyromania.
| Water Is My Favorite Element ||May 20th. at 3:07:21 pm EDT|
|Annick Lynn Rodriguez (New York) ||Age: 35 - Email |
I have always loved the water since I was a child. I have also had an intense fear of the water , since I nearly drowned as a child. But I still love the sensation of water, I love being near lakes and oceans.I know there is something magical about it and also that it is a force that should be respected, not feared. One day I will learn to swim so that I can feel the power of water touch me. I know I will get over my fear one day and when I do I don't think anyone will be able to get me out of whatever body of water I am in.

My favorite element would have to be Air, but i never really thought of it as Air but more so as Wind. It comes naturally to me, i remeber even as a little girl conjuring up wind. And water, water has always felt like a warm safe place for me to be in. I love water and I'm a Pisces. But Wind is the easiest foer me to control, summon, and work wit. Some of my most powerful magick is done when i sing. (is that wierd or can someone else do that too?) Anyways i guess that's about it. cool question.

I have a strong affinity to both spirit and fire. Interesting this is because my sun-sign is pisces, my rising-sign is cancer and my moon-sign is scorpio - all water signs! (And yes, I am very emotional!) I live in the spirit - although I know I have things to do here on Earth. I wish to return to the spirit - not to sound depressed or depressing here. I wish to return to my astral family - both before and after me. As for fire, I am just entranced by it. I trust it, though I know that it can kill and get out of control. I just feel it is a friend - sort of like - that's the best word I can think of right now - "friend."

I have always considered myself more of a water person, for the elements. Although, I generally correspond with water, but my actual element is air.

I love the Earth elements.A walk in the woods, a cool breeze in the air, the smell of a campfire and the sound of a babbling stream or brook near by. That is my Avelon! My Summerlands! Have a Great SummerSolstice! Blessed Be

My favourite element is Fire, being an Aries. My second favourite when I need to unwind is water. I like to light candles while in the bath/shower, so that's a combination of my two favourites. I've seen lightning associated with Air, so that would have to be my third favourite. I don't have much Earth in my chart, other than being a Virgo rising, so Earth I would have to say would be my least favourite, though I do love to take walks in the woods.

As a fire sign, I am drawn to the element of water when I seek peace and tranquility. It tames my flame when it ignites to great heights. I fear fire, a representation of myself for the most part. I see what it is capeable of and know what I am capeable of. It reflects the shadow self of me. The element air is both soothing and frightening. It can be a calm caress, soothing me or it can add fuel to my firey nature. The element earth, is of my favorite as it grounds me and keeps me in balance. Spirit is a mystery and keeps me enraptured, like a good novel that you can not put down, thus mimicking the wonderous connection with all. The Elements and I are entertwined, joined, a part of all and each other. Our energies linked.
