Many spell casters seek out nature, both for guidance in their magic and to connect with the natural world. Magic is based on finding harmony and balance in one’s self. Finding a connection to not only nature but the elements that surround them.
Many will stick to one element for meditation or to focus their magic feeling attune to the elemental. Some look to the element they were born under, while others seek out the one, they feel the most connected to. However, when facing problems and situations one must seek out all the elements for guidance. This is a simple five card spread focusing on a problem that you are facing. It could be something as simple as deciding on dealing with a friendly disagreement to a problem of the heart or mind. Some use the spread to reveal a problem they didn’t notice at first. The first card is laid in the center with the next four cards circling around it, like casting a circle. The next four cards are placed in their directional spaces East, South, West, and North. Each being the core of the element and how it associates with the problem.

Personal Experience Usually when my mind is troubled, I seek out a pond or a small source of water for meditation. I know that to lose control over my emotions will only make the situation worse. Being an empath, I’m also the one many go to when they seek advice for their own problems. I have always used nature to aid in my situations showing that even on a subconscious level, I listen to the elements and their advice.
