E A R T H represents strength, grounding, prosperity, the material, wealth, success, foundations, death and rebirth. Focus on this element if the goal of your spell is about fertility, prosperity, business or stability. Earth spells may take longer to work, but they're also more firm and are good if you're looking for long-term solutions.

A I R represents intellect and the mind, wisdom, knowledge; logic as well as abstract thought, intuition and higher consciousness.
