MYSTERIES OF ELEMENTAL WATER:
Elemental water forms our emotional bodies and governs shape and form. Water will always for to the shape of its container and is easily molded by intention. Water rules the sense of taste, which is one reason why Witches fill their chalices with something tasty to drink as a means of enjoying waters power. In Hermetic alchemy, elemental water is said to have a wet and cold nature and anchors the polarity of fierce feminine power.
Water is the element of the astral plane and the subconscious mind. Ruled by the moon, water is the psychic energy shaped by the other elemental influences yet forms the matrix out of which our reality blooms. Just like physical water, its power flows everywhere, connecting everything.
In water we dive deeply into our intuition, dreams and visions. These spiritual waters are where our subconscious mind rests. When we are asleep, the watery realm of the astral plane is where our subconscious mind goes to dream. When we dream ~ we achieve REM (rapid eye movement) levels of sleep where our watery essence is poured back into the astral ocean of Divine Love.
