Those who know the underlying concepts of magic and witchcraft throughout history are well aware of the importance that the elements play in their study. At the origin of most magic spells and gifts, it is not surprising that your association with any element can have an impact on where your natural powers are.
Going back to the very roots of witchcraft, beliefs have evolved in the natural world. In this world, there are 4 well-known fundamental powers, also known as the 4 basic elements. Everyone rules over a different aspect of the world we live in by bringing their own unique influence on the world. These include earth, water, fire, and air. When we bring them together with the element of “the Spirit”, we have a magic concept discussed in the teachings of the early Celtic pagans known as “five-ness”.
It is believed that true strength and true power come from the balance of these elements, the union of earth, fire, water, air and spirit into one united force. While this is most often seen as the pinnacle of power, there are forces associated with each of the individual elements, each rule of a different type of magic. While a witch can perform any spell or ritual, by identifying the element with which she is most closely associated, she can refine her greatest gifts for an even more powerful and successful magical experience.
You don’t know what element governs your life? Each of the zodiac signs is associated with one of the four classic elements of nature. It is the key to your own magic power and strength.
Discover your most powerful magical gifts according to the element of your zodiac:
Fire: Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius
An intense element, being an element of fire means that you have incredible power, however, you must learn to use it responsibly or you can cause great destruction. Those who dare to cross you must be careful, because they have painted a target on their back, and those born under a sign of fire have quite the temperament when they have been injured or disrespected in any way.
Not only are you skilled in the most obvious magic, candle magic, but the fire signs have incredible power to heal physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. This includes not only bringing healing to someone when they are dealing with an illness or disease but also the gift of exorcism when it is their soul that needs attention.
Earth: Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn
The strongest and most stable of the elements, those of you who were born under an earthly sign are faithful and reliable individuals who are not afraid to roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty. Drawing your power from the earth itself, you feel a close connection to the magic of crystals and herbs.
Another magic force that is often overlooked, but also derives its power from the earth is that of runic magic, most often seen inscribed on stones, wood or the ground itself. Learning to harness this power will provide you with the guidance necessary to unleash your greatest natural magical ability – that of protection. When used to its full potential, you have the ability to protect yourself and others from some of the most malicious energies and forces in the universe.
Air: Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius
The dreamers of the zodiac, those of you born under an aerial sign are truly free thinkers, without fear of thinking outside the box. You refuse to be bound by the rules and constraints of society, choosing instead to maintain your independence in everything you do. You are incredibly in tune with the spiritual world and the existence of other areas, which allows you to contact and communicate with spirits.
It is an incredible gift because they often have a lot of wisdom and insight to share. Your freedom also extends to freedom from the constraints of your own body, which gives you more power in the area of telepathy, remote viewing, and even astral projection. If you are looking for information, there will be no physical constraints preventing you from seeking it directly.
Water: Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces
Associated with love, connection and intuition, if you were born under a sign of water, you thrive on the connection you can establish with others. While others, like those born under a sign of fire, are known to upset the balance of life, your powers are working to restore that balance.
You are able to “see” beyond the physical world, a gift that gives you power in the field of illusions, divination and the walking of dreams. In addition, the practice of mirror magic has long been associated with the water element, as it was practiced in still water long before the use of artificial mirrors. Your clarity and vision can lead you to great things, as long as you trust your intuition.
