The elements surround us moment by moment, but many people go through life without noticing their connections to them. And as Witch, you’ve probably experienced a closer relationship to them than most. Each gust of wind evokes a feeling, each leap of a flame has a hidden meaning, and our connection to the elements that surrounds us is constant. The classical elements of Earth, Air, Fire and Water, plus the fifth element of Spirit, are the energies of nature that are constantly working all around us to build the physical world that we experience. It’s in the elements that we find structure and often aid as we raise energy to work magic.  So as the theme this month is Green Witchcraft, let’s take a moment to honor the elements that evoke much passion and reverence, and allow deep insight into the world we live in.
