Basic Nature:

Physical Manifestation, Existence, Matter, Manifestation, Incarnation, Fertile, Stabilizing, Grounding. Gravity is a Manifestation of this Element

In a fivefold paradigm, the Element called Earth intimates many things: our Birth Planet, the Womb, Physical Manifestation and Existence, Consensus Reality, Inter and Intra-Dependent Reality, and Durative Reality, perhaps best captured in the Dream of Durative Ægypt. (May You Nuzzle the Breast of the Mother.)

Earth is Manifestation; Earth is Existence. Earth is Matter, Energy condensed, as we now know, to appear solid. Earth is Solid. Touch is the sense of this element. Earth is all Elements of scientific notation, from the lightest of gases to the impossibly heavy ones, which sprang from the Hearts of dying Stars: Earth is Stardust . . . without which we would not be possible. For Humans, Animals, and Plants, the corporeal state of Flesh is the embodiment of Earth. Earth is feminine; Earth speaks of the Mother. Earth is the Changing Woman, the Woman who Changes not Forever, the Creatrix. Earth is stability and growth, transcending paradox. Earth is the Record-Keeper, the Archivor, of all the elements only Earth keeps physical records that all can read in rock strata and fossils of Her story of Life. The Heart of the Mother Goddess is enormous, simultaneously distant in the core of the planet and so close that we can "press the grass apart, and lay our hands" on Her Heart.

Humans need Earth to grow food for ourselves and for our flocks and to build our dwellings and civilizations upon. Earth is the Foundation, the base upon which all things may be built. Of Magickal practitionors, the Alchemists give Earth primary metaphorical position, from the beginning at prima materia to the result of Philosopher's Stone. The Path of Earth rotates between Light and Dark, Warm and Cold, Wet and Dry, and encompasses everything in between. The Sun-drenched plateaus at the top of the World and deepest, darkest Caverns all hold the Gift of Life from the Mother. Earth denies nothing.

Earth as an element resonates with the Nurturing entity, the Care-Giver and the Elder. It symbolizes the Normal Waking State of consciousness. In an Ægyptian parts of Being system, the Oo'Wast, the Sohu, and the Khat primarily represent Earth. Earth is Gravity. Earth is the Solid State, Normal Perpendicular Force, Contact Force, Volume, Mass, Breadth, Width, Matter, and the Immovable Object.

Many Traditions relate Earth to the North, the Boreos Wind, and the Aequilo Wind. In other Teachings the Emerald Path and the Turquoise Door are spoken of. Earth is Instinctual Thinking, Ancestral Thinking, and Tribal Thinking. Earth is the Individual. Earth is MidNight and Night. In the Pancha Tatwa system of Sanatana Dharma, Earth holds the place of Prithvi, the Yellow Square. In the Garden of Life Tarot, Earth is reflected in Atu 3, called the Empress, Atu 21, called the Universe, and the entire suite of Discs.
