Elements

**All of the below information has been taken from "Witch Crafting" by Phyllis Curott

Earth
Direction: North
Nature: Mountains, Fields
Aspects: Body
Qualities: Creativity, Fertility, Strength, Groundedness
Tool: Pentacle
Zodiacal Sign: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn
Spirit Form: Gnome
The Earth is the body of the Divine. It is Goddess, God, and the genderless Sacred. The element of earth is associated with the powers of growth, fertility, mystery, and rebirth. With earth magic you can attune yourself to Nature's rhythms, her cycles of growth, death, and rebirth, and so understand the rhythms of your own body as you age and mature, and the events of your life as you grow, create, outgrow things, and begin again. Earth helps you manifest your ideas and desires, tap into your creativity, create prosperity, and give birth to the life you want.

I ask that you join me in my sacred space
Be with me now at this time and this place
