In different traditions they are placed in different directions on the Wheel of the Year. On most wheels air is in the east, but for me, in my tradition it is in the north.
It is my belief that there is no right or wrong place for the elements. You will know which Wheel is the right one for you because it will feel natural. That is how I felt when I started learning about the Wheel of Ana when I trained as a Priestess of Avalon.
It just fit.
Air is the element that can not be seen, but is all around as. It is within us as our breath, and is what keeps us alive.
It is connected to the mind, communication, stillness, meditation, inner peace and wisdom.
It is the wind in the trees, and connected to the birds in the sky.
It can be gentle as a breeze or the healing breath in meditation.
It can be as destructive as a hurricane.
And we can experience and call upon the energies of both of those.
Communicating with Air
When we allow ourselves the time to be still, to connect with our breath, and to find the peace within we can hear the whispers of Goddess.
To connect with air, burn incense, go outside and pay attention to what the wind is doing. Can you feel it against your skin? Can you see it playing with the trees?
Write down what thoughs come to you.
To learn more about the elements and to dive deeper into your connection to Goddess you may want to have a look at my online course Awakening to the elements.
