Tools of the Trade What do you keep on hand?
The five elements: water, fire, air, earth, and the void are connected to sustain life. To create healthy energy the basic elemental tools need to be explored.
East, Water, Cup, compassion, love, healing
South, Fire, Wand, personal will,
West, Air, Sword, thoughts, communication
North, Earth, Pentacle, material, physical
Aether, Ether, Akasha, the void
The Void - represents those things beyond our everyday experience, particularly those things composed of pure energy.
( In Aristotle's system aether
had no qualities (was neither hot, cold, wet, or dry), was incapable of change (with the exception of change of place), and by its nature moved in circles, and had no contrary, or unnatural, motion.)
Aristotle added aether as the quintessence, reasoning that whereas fire, earth, air, and water were earthly and corruptible, since no changes had been perceived in the heavenly regions, the stars cannot be made out of any of the four elements but must be made of a different, unchangeable, heavenly substance.
The five elements are associated with the five senses, and act as the gross medium for the experience of sensations. The basest element, earth, created using all the other elements, can be perceived by all five senses - hearing, touch, sight, taste, and smell. The next higher element, water, has no odor but can be heard, felt, seen and tasted. Next comes fire, which can be heard, felt and seen. Air can be heard and felt. "Akasha" (ether) is the medium of sound but
is inaccessible to all other senses.
