Wicca Symbols and Their Explanation

By A. Bachman

There are many different symbols used in wicca that a true practitioner should know about. These wicca symbols represent different types of energy and aspects of the spiritual world. The most basic to understand and develop a relationship with when it comes to wicca symbols are the basic elements. These are the foundation of everything physical that you can touch. So let's begin our study.

Earth is the first of the elements we need to talk about when it comes to wicca symbols. The symbol for earth is an upside down triangle with a horizontal line running through it. Earth is the foundation of everything. It represents firmness, vision, stability, fertility, material abundance, and growth.

Earth is also represented on a compass as north. It is represented by the angel Raphael and is ruled by the planet mercury. Develop an understanding of this element as it is the foundation of everything. It is the physical world and it is where our food comes from. Not to mention the fact that it gives us a place to live. This is why it has been referred to as mother earth for so long. It feeds us, clothes us, nurtures us, and gives us home and hearth.

Water is the next element we need to talk about. Water is still a solid, but begins to move toward the realm of the elements that cannot be touched. All of the elements can be experienced, but you can't pick up a handful of water like you can a handful of dirt. The symbol for water is an upside down triangle. Water represents intelligence, change, flow, intuition, inner knowledge, sympathy, and love.

West is the cardinal direction represented by water. Gabrielle is the angel associated with water and the planet associated with water is the moon. Water is the next of wicca symbols to understand. It is the essence of human life. Without water, we would all die. It is the most essential element of survival.

Fire is the third of wicca symbols and it is represented by a triangle right side up. Fire represents those energies of expansion, direct commitment, courage, purification, creativity, the higher self, and the will to dare.

West is the cardinal direction of fire and Michael is the angel represented by fire. The sun is the planet associated with fire. Fire is the next element because it can still be seen but never touched or grasped. As we move up the chart of the elements, we begin to move into those areas that can be experienced, but not touched or tasted as rocks and dirt can. Fire is necessary for warmth and cooking.

Air is the fourth of the wicca symbols to develop an understanding about and it's symbol is a right side up triangle with a horizontal line through the middle. Air is represented by south on the compass and includes aspects of communication, spontaneity, concentration, compassion, warrior ship, giving, concern, and empathy.

The planet Venus is associated with the element of air and Ariel is the angel. Air is that aspect of breathing, freedom, and movement which is necessary to the success and happiness of all living creatures.

The spirit is the fifth and final of wicca symbols we will discuss here. The spirit is located on the compass directly in the middle of all the other elements. It is the balance between them all and includes the ability to shift from one to the next with ease. It represents understanding of all the other elements. Spirit is everything and everything is spirit.

The spirit is represented by the planet Saturn. It's angel is Cassiel.

Develop an understanding of all of these wicca symbols and use them on a daily basis. As you expand on your studies and learn how to be a witch and a wiccan practitioner, your understanding of these elements will be absolutely essential to your growth.
