Earth My Body
Water My Blood
Air My Breath and
Fire My Spirit
This is my symbol. A pentacle: five pointed star inside of a circle. (Not to be mistaken for the Pentagram which is a star with no circle.) Each point represent an element; elements that are part of me and who I am. Though my true element is Earth, every other element is part of me. The elemental pentacle represents our war of thinking about the existence of things, starting at the top with Spirit (Life Force).
Everything that follows is a building block to all life.
Each element on the pentacle is represented by colors and aspects of life. I will make it easier for you.
|SPIRIT||White,Black,Clear, Violet||Divinity, Consciousness, Harmony|
|AIR||Yellow, Light Grey, White||Clarity, Intelligence|
|FIRE||Orange, Red||Passion, Vitality|
|EARTH||Green, Brown, Black||Body, Health|
As you can see, each element has a corresponding color and aspect of life. Those of you who meditate focus mostly on the Spirit aspect, trying to gain Harmony in oneself; but you also use the other elements as well. Air for the breathing to clean out your body, Fire to rejuvenate the soul, Water to control your emotions, and Earth to ground your body and let the energies flow to heal your body.
For Pagans, the colors play the role of symbolism to the Pentacle. This brings me to casting a circle.
Each element, save for Spirit, represents a direction. Earth is North, Air is East, Fire is south, and Water is West.

Now that you have a good idea how we set up our circles with elements, let me say thanks to those sites that helped me explain all of this to you:
The Pentacle is the symbol of our religion. Just as the cross, cresent moon, and others are symbols of all the religions in the world.
To be honest with you, I do not think any religion is wrong (except scientology). All are right in their own way. There are just holes that need to be filled and crazy shit that needs to be taken out. We are all followers of one thing or another. We should never ever go against another human being for what they believe (except scientologists) and accept those who are different. We, as humans, can never achieve happiness, nirvana, or enlightenment unless we believe that we can coexist.
