Paganism and Wiccan in relation to The Elements


In this past week I’ve been researching and reading a lot about pagan beliefs in relation to the elements. I already knew about

Fire, Earth, Air, Water. In pagan beliefs, there is a fifth element: Spirit. Here is my research on the current elements and their symbolism/belief relations in Paganism. I can use these in my project by displaying them through photographs and illustration, it also helps me understand the importance of the elements in some peoples lives.
