Water is one of the few materials on earth that can exist simultaneously in more than one state of matter (solid, liquid, and gas) at certain temperatures. Because of this unique scientific property, each state of water has its own magickal associations. It is vital to carefully choose the best state of water for your magickal application.
- Earth: solid-state water (ice or snow). Its crystalline structure represents stasis.
- Water: liquid water. Its fluid structure represents adaptation.
- Air: gaseous water (steam or fog). Its nebulous structure represents communication.
- Fire: energy (lightning, heat, fire). It causes changes in state, thus representing change.
