AIR - The Elemental Series

Air Element


It's the air in our lungs, a necessary element of survival

It's the wind that blows through the trees and kisses our cheeks

It's the traveler, always on the move to new places

It is invisible, and yet its presence is ever present

It's movement in it's purest form

Our second element in this series is Air. The Air element at its core represents  knowledge, intellect, and communication. It embodies swift movement, clarity, and inspiration. 

Below is an extensive list of the Air element correspondences. This comprehensive list is one that I've compiled over the years from multiple sources and personal experiences. Feel free to use what feels right for you and omit what does not resonate.
