Basic Nature:

Mentation, Thought, Discernment

In a fivefold paradigm, the Element called Air intimates many things: this Universe, Thought, Internal Reality, Abstract Reality, and Subjective Reality. (May You Soar.)

Air is the Breath of Life, that which makes Life possible on this Planet. Air is inexorably related to Thought, our intellects, the mind, and all mental processes and abilities. Air is psychic abilities, learning, knowledge and theory. The nature of Air is to provide a Jumping Off Place, a platform of Knowledge from which we grasp for Enlightenment. Air embodies the arena of Gnosis in which we strive to become ourselves. Air seems insubstantial yet also is irresistible in force. There is a transitional quality to Air; in some senses Air is the subtle material realm which exists between various physical and spiritual planes, partaking of both Natures. Air is the indispensable element through which we activate all our senses, particularly Sight. And Sight is the sense of this Element. At some basic level, Air is freshness; there is little more precious than fresh air. A whole cadre of human responses relate to the Archetype of Freshness, Spring, Maidenhood and Youth. The oxygen in our particular gaseous mix that we call "the atmosphere" enables the "Hidden Germ Ally" of the Ægyptians (or Mitochondria as we are more familiar with calling them) to make our multi-cellular life-forms possible. Humans require Air, and Humans need fresh Air to function at our best.

Etymologically, the Greek word for Spirit, "Pneuma," and for Soul, "Psyche," both relate to the root word for breath. Similarly, the Sanskrit "Prana" and Chinese "Chi" imply the life-giving and life-enhancing force that enters the body with the breath. The Sanatana Dharma Goddess, Shakti is the personification of that universal life breath force. Greek Prometheus breathes life into his Humans made from dust, as does Ægyptian Khemnu into his People formed on the Potter's Wheel out of the Nile's Clay.

Air as an element, resonates with the Seeking entity, and the Adept. Air symbolizes the state of SuperConsciousness. In an Ægyptian parts of Being system, the Ba, the Ren, the HeruUr or Banner Name primarily represent Air. Air is the Weak Nuclear Force, the Gaseous State, Height, Depth, Space, and the Unseen Force.

Some Traditions relate Air to the South, the Notos Wind, or the Auster Wind. Other Traditions relate Air to the East. In other Teachings, the Golden Path, the Rainbow Bridge, and the Peacock Gate are spoken of. Air is Linear Thinking. Air is the Nation. Air is Dawn and the Morning. In the Pancha Tatwa system of Sanatana Dharma, Air holds the place of Vayu, the Blue Circle. In the Garden of Life Tarot, Air is reflected in Atu 1, called the Magi, Atu 2, called the High Priestess, and the entire suite of Blades.
