The Four Elements and the Cornerstone

The Four Cornerstone (Judeo-Christian) Elements, which still hold scientific validity, are Earth, Air, Water, and Fire. When combined together, they form a hexagram, or a Star of David. The ancient symbols representing these four elements can be seen as follows:

I. The Element of Earth
II. The Element of Air
III. The Element of Water
Element Ikons
IV. The Element of Fire

The practice of Judeo-Christian Magick and Witchkraft involves the manipulation of these symbols, which naturally combine to form the Star of David. The traditional understanding of this concept can be visualized in a variety of ways as can be seen below:

Element Ikons
I placed him on earth, a second angel, honourable, great and glorious, and I appointed him as ruler to rule on earth and to have my wisdom, and there was none like him of earth of all my existing creatures. And I appointed him a name, from the four component parts, from east, from west, from south, from north, and I appointed for him four special stars, and I called his name Adam, and showed him the two ways, the light and the darkness (II Enoch 30:12-13)
