A to Z Blogging Challenge words of the day - Eagle and Element of Earth

Hope all are enjoying these little post. Today I chose two words that beginning with “E”. Eagle and Element of Earth

Eagle, is used as a magical symbolism in the Kerubic emblem of the element of water. It comes from the complex magical symbolism of the zodiacal sign Scorpio. The eagle (in alchemy) is a common symbol and usually represents mercury. If paired with the lion it means mercury and sulphur, which are the basics of all metallic items.

(I personally would have never thought an eagle would be related to water. I could see air, and maybe even earth, but to me water and a eagle doesn’t match well.)

Element of Earth It is one of the four, (or five, depending on your beliefs) elements corresponding to matter in solid form, as well as to the cold and dry qualities. Attributes of Earth vary, but there are some standards in most current Western occult systems. A few that my resource listed are below.

Earth symbol:


Name of God:                         ADNI, Adonai (Lord)
Archangel:                   Auriel (Light of God)
Ruler:                          Kerub
Elemental King:           Ghob
Elementals:                  Gnomes
Season:                        Winter
Time of day:               Midnight
Qualities:                     Cold and dry
Nature:                                    Stability

Of course how this information is applied and taken depends on your belief system. Or in a writer’s case how it applies to the story world and character you are creating.

Hope all enjoyed today’s post and comes back tomorrow to find out what word I chose that begins with the letter, “F”.

  1. Hmm yeah I wouldn't have put eagle with water either. How strange!

    Happy A to Z-ing!

  2. As far as Eagle and Water go there is the fish eagle, but you're right, not the first combination I'd have thought of.

  3. I have to agree, eagle does seem an odd choice for water. Fascinating info yet again - sorry I'm late in posting I was off gallivanting with the in-laws yesterday.
