The Four Elemental Phases of the Moon

The Four Elemental Phases of the Moon

Elemental Time

It’s unsurprising that noon and summer would be associated with fire, and by that same logic, the full moon should also be in the same category….Earth, in the opposite direction as fire, therefore corresponds with midnight, winter, and the new moon….Air is the element of new beginnings, youth, increase and creativity. As such, it is associated with spring, the waxing moon, and sunrise…Water is the element of emotion and wisdom, particularly the wisdom of age. It represents a time past the peak of livelihood, moving toward the end of the cycle.

The Four Directions, Elements, Times, and Colors of the Four Corners

The Four Directions, Elements, Times, and Colors of the Four Corners

This simple circular chart of the Cardinal Directions North, South, East, and West is absolutely correct. Ancient Church documents shows this to be the case, as well as several Judaic references. This is it, folks. This is the historical and factual viewpoint of Judeo/Christian Mysticism and ‘Magick’.

The ‘Pagan’ tradition of Four Elements…

ELEMENTS: The four basic elements to many pagans are earth, water, air (wind or spirit) and fire. Many consider the first two passive and feminine – and the last two active and masculine. In Wiccan or Native American rituals, the “quartered circle” (also the Medicine Wheel) represents a “sacred space” or the sacred earth. The four lines may represent the spirits of the four primary directions or the spirits of the earth, water, wind and fire. (This set of elements differs from those used in alchemy.

Adam began to b…

Adam began to beg God, saying, ‘O my Lord, my God, and my Creator, You commanded the Four Elements to be gathered together, and they were gathered together by Thine order. Then You spread Your hand and created me out of one Element, that of dust of the Earth.

_______________________

One of the Oldest, yet still the best, most popular, and most misunderstood Symbolic Representations of the Four Elements bases itself upon two sets of opposing equilateral triangles which come together to form the Star of David. All things considered, most especially the fact that Christian Europe has been using this particular Alchemical insignia since the Middle Ages, one can rightfully claim the entire system of symbolizing the Four Elements is a classic example of the Judeo/Christian Tradition, both then and now. What follows is a brief listing of the most common form of triangles as they relate to the Four Elements of God’s Creation:

The Ancient Triangle Symbols of the Four Elements
1) FIRE: Upward Triangle colored Red
2) WATER: Downward Triangle colored Blue
3) AIR: Upward Triangle colored Yellow with horizontal dash through the upper tip of Triangle
4) EARTH: Downward Triangle colored Green with a horizontal dash drawn through the lower tip of Triangle

In essence, the Star of David provides the most simplistic (and easy to draw) method of representing the various combinations of either Air and Earth, Fire and Water, Air and Water, or Fire and Earth.

Opposing elements are on opposite sides…and are distinguished by the presence or absence of the crossbar within the triangle…Air and earth are opposites and have the crossbar. Water and fire are also opposites, and lack the crossbar.

Also, even Earth and Water may be drawn using a Star of David, in spite of the fact that both of them have Downward Triangles as their official symbols. Why? Because Water is considered lighter than Earth and so becomes an Upward Triangle so that both together still form a Star of David, just as Fire is lighter is than Air and therefore represented with a Star of David when combined.

The Blatantly Obvious Star of David = Earth + Air = Water + Fire
The Somewhat Obvious Star of David = Earth + Fire = Water = Air
The Not so Obvious Star of David = Earth + Water = Air + Fire

References to the Triangular Symbolism of the Four Elements

Each element is either warm or cold, and this corresponds with a male or female gender…The orientation of the triangle is determined by warmth or coldness, male or female. Male, warm elements point upward, ascending toward the spiritual realm. Female, cold elements point downward, descending into the earth.

– Four Elements and their Qualities, by Catherine Beyer, About.com

Each element has a symbol and color. Common symbols are Fire: a triangle pointing up. Air: a triangle pointing up and with a horizontal line through the middle of it. Water: a triangle pointing down. Earth: a triangle pointing down and with a horizontal line through the middle of it.

The four classic elements are still essential symbols of the cultures and belief systems of many groups, including Native Americans, pagans and various tribal groups throughout the world…During the Greek Hellenic civilization (323-146 B.C.), the symbols used to represent the four elements of Greek physics were based on the triangle:

Fire: Triangle points up
Water: Triangle points down
Air: Triangle points up with a horizontal line through center of triangle
Earth: Triangle points down with a horizontal line through center of triangle
