SYMBOLISM: The 4 ELEMENTS. Earth,water,air,fire
The 4 elements refer to ancient beliefs inspired by natural observation of the phases of matter; with the classical elements: earth is equivalent to solid, water is equivalent to liquid, air is equivalent to gas and fire is equivalent to plasma. The 4 elements are physical components, of which the entire world is made up from
Sometimes they may include a fifth element or quintessence (after “quint” meaning “fifth”) called Aether or spirit, which describes that which was beyond the material world. The symbol for either is a circle
