Water

Feminine
DESCRIPTION- Water flows from the inside of rocks or pours gently from above, like feelings which "well up" inside you or sweep over you. Tears, water flowing from the eyes, are the outward expression of a strong emotional content. Indeed, feelings are made of the same stuff as water: they can be felt cool and refreshing on the skin - but try to grab them, try to get hold of them, they elude you and pool only where they find a gentle place to rest. Water imbibes all life forms and gives them lushness and freshness. Without any feelings the soul would not be a soul at all, but an arid desert of calculations and speculations based upon reactions on the physical surroundings. Poor water functioning causes a person to be arid, distant, cold and unresponsive. On the other hand excessive water is like a river that exceeds its banks and can wipe away all sense of reality and measure. In cases of poor water functioning water magic is very helpful. But be careful not to use water magic in the case of excessive water functioning. As for all the other elements you must remember not to deal directly with excesses but to find out which element is lacking. Nourishing that one the balance will be automatically redressed without danger.
BASIC NATURE- Water is the cleansing, healing, psychic, loving element. It washes over us when we see our mates; supports us when we swim; gives us life when we are dehydrated. Dew dusts plants after the sunsets. Rainstorms (one manifestation of this element) drench us. Taste pure water. Move your hand through a stream, lake, pool, or bowl full of water. Feel its cool liquidity; it's soft touch. Listen to water trickling into a pool. As you do these things, remember that we contain Water energy within ourselves as well. The energy of this element is vital to our well being as humans, for it contains within it the essence of love. ~Love is the underlying reason for all magic. ~ Water is love.
