DEFINITIONS

Water: An element associated with the west quarter. It is one of the four elements. Water is also a symbol of regeneration, renovation, and dissolution. In occultism beings known as Undines are creatures of this element. Traditionally, the element of Water is associated with the color green—in many modern Wiccan/Witchcraft Traditions the color is blue.
