These four elements correspond to the four directions, the four
quarters of the universe, the four winds, and the four quarters of
the magickal circle.
Each element has assigned traditional rulers and boundaries to

magnificent creature is unreal and, of course, you have those who say it lives. I
believe the latter . . . do you?
