WItches Weekly June 13, 2004: Rituals – Meditations
1. When performing rituals/meditations, do you associate yourself with the element most closely related to your astrological sign?
Odd; I never noticed until I just thought about it, but I usually begin my meditations next to the sea, a stream, or by a pool of water. I’m a Cancer, which is the cardinal water sign. Coincidence? Maybe. I just love water, and I associate it with purification. I like to symbolically cross water or immerse myself in my meditation landscape before I begin my meditation proper.
As for rituals, I prefer to use fire and earth-based energies.
2. If not, do you associate/align yourself with your moon sign, or something that just “feels right”?
Again, I’m a Pisces moon, so there’s no escaping the water influence. Six of one, half a dozen of another. (Yeah, delving into astrology helped explain my hypersensitivity. I added fire to balance my practices and things are better.)
3. Do you follow the typical elements of earth, water, fire, air, spirit? Or do you follow an even more non-traditional association akin to earth, water, fire, metal?
I employ the traditional elements, but I consider metal a very powerful substance. I see it as being a meld of earth, air, fire, and water.
