Fertility, Stability & Practicality
The element of Earth is the basis of the physical universe. Working with Earth requires an understanding of it's physical nature and experience of the importance of matter on our planet, in our universe and our lives. Its presence is most obvious to us in the spectacular side of nature; in mountain ranges and canyons, earthquakes or erupting volcanoes. But it is evident in less dramatic ways, in our everyday experience. It forms the matter of bones in our own bodies, the ground on which we walk, and feeds the vegetation that keeps our planet green and living
The spiritual properites of Earth are manifestation, fruition, fertility, embodiment and solidity. It's physical gifts are sensation, physicality, food, shelter and the shield of protection.
