note: these are my personal correspondences! you may not agree with them, and thats totally okay. i just wanna share some ideas so you can form your own opinions :) feel free to add to the list!

Why would you involve the elements?

depending on the sigil’s purpose, different elements can aid the intent. for example:

WATER

water would help with sigils relating to emotions, wisdom, purification, love, healing, femininity and others.

WAYS TO CHARGE/ACTIVATE USING WATER 

  • drawing the sigil on paper and letting it soak in the sink
  • placing the sigil out in the rain
  • letting the sigil absorb moonlight
  • drawing the sigil on your body while you swim or bathe

EARTH

earth would help with sigils relating to gardening, money, grounding, divination, fertility, employment, stability, and others.

WAYS TO CHARGE/ACTIVATE USING EARTH

  • placing the sigil in soil
  • if it is a sigil to help with plants, place it under the pot or near the plant
  • let the sigil absorb sunlight
  • surround with crystals/rocks (selenite would be good!)
  • any sort of physical way would be good

FIRE

fire would help with sigils relating to sex, courage, exercise, destruction, force, cleansing, protection and many others.

WAYS TO CHARGE/ACTIVATE USING FIRE

  • draw the sigil on paper and burn it (be careful!)
  • pass over a candle
  • pass through incense smoke (or any smoke) 
  • cut up the paper
  • let it absorb sunlight
  • have the paper under your pillow or nearby when indulging in acts of passion (yep. you know what i mean.)
  • draw the sigil on your skin and everytime it moves it’ll charge

AIR

air would help with sigils relating to flying, moving, intelligence, school, karma, and others.

WAYS TO CHARGE/ACTIVATE USING AIR

  • pass through incense smoke
  • play your sigil some music
  • toss the sigil into the air
  • take it with you when traveling 
  • fan the sigil
  • study with it nearby if it is to do with that


hope this helped!!

What Is The Universe’s Third Most Common Element?

“But there’s one killer move that stars have that makes carbon a loser in the cosmic equation: when a star is massive enough to initiate carbon fusion – a requirement for generating a type II supernova – the process that turns carbon into oxygen goes almost to full completion, creating significantly more oxygen than carbon by time the star is ready to explode.”

When the Universe was first born, all we had was hydrogen and helium, with a trace amount of lithium and absolutely nothing else. 13.8 billion years later, hydrogen is still #1 in the Universe and helium is still #2, but lithium isn’t close to #3 anymore: more than two dozen elements have passed it. The key? Stars! Over billions of years, nuclear fusion in the cores of stars have built up all the naturally occurring elements we know of in the periodic table. You might think that since three heliums can fuse together to make carbon, that would be the third most common element in the Universe. And it’s close: carbon comes in at #4. But another element has it beat.

So who’s number 3, and how did it get to be that way? It’s oxygen! Find out why today.

If your chart is lacking in one element you likely are attracted to that element in other people or in the physical world. I.e. If you lack in water you might admire beaches and love to swim. Whether or not you are attracted to that element it is healthy for your mind, body, and soul to be around things associated with the element.

Witch Tip

When grounding yourself after a spell, connect yourself with the element you were born under for the strongest effects.

If you are an air sign, lie under or beside a fan, or, on a windy day, go outside and drop your energies and let them be blown away.

If you are an Earth sign, put your palms into the dirt outside and push the energy you used in your spell out of you and back into the Earth so you can rest and be calm again.

If you are a water sign, dip your fingertips in a bowl of water and shake off your stress and leftover energy.

If you are a fire sign, burn incense and watch the smoke elevate from the stick and focus on the images you can find in the smoke, calming and emptying your mind from the stress of your spell and resting.
