Wolf of antimony’s system of understanding:

  • East = (relative Element)
  • West = (relative Element)
  • North = (relative Element)
  • South = (relative Element)
  • Center = Kna
  • Above = Fire
  • Below = Earth
  • within = Water
  • without = Air

My understanding is that the cardinal directions are relative to the practitioner, and because of that correspondences are also relative to your position. This means the directions may have correspondences related to natural landmarks that are in certain directions. Such as if you had an ocean to the east the east would, become associated with water because of the high amount of water kna in that area. Then depending upon which element you choose to represent which direction based upon your geographic features will represent that kna in your magick, and will take on the correspondences of that element in that direction. This understanding brings a lot of customization and personality to your rituals, and it also allows you to draw on the kna of the land around you. you better believe it, so if you have oceans on both sides of you both directions will not be water, and the direction that has the most water kna would take Elemental Association. the one that loses out would need to take on the kna of their second most strongest Elemental kna in your correspondences.

I also bring in the directions of center, above, below, within, and without because I feel like these understandings are more fixed, and absolute, and because of that they can actually add something to your practice through their understandings.
Center is connected to kna, and the individual, and the present. This is the middle of everything, and the place where everything comes to. It is like a control room being able to observe, interact, and control all things that come in contact with it. this direction is usually held by yourself in your personal relative perspective which is why it is connected to kna.

Above is connected to the element of fire, and the higher planes of existences. this is your connection to everything that is above whether that be above physically, or spiritually. It connects you to the higher planes of existence, your divinity, while also connecting you with the physical Universe, and the placement of the heavens above.

Below is connected to earth, and is connected to the physical plane of existence, and is also connected to grounding. This connects you to everything that is below you mostly the earth, and its kna, and the connection to your physical being, and your body’s ancestors.

Within is connected to the element of water, and the internal feelings, and emotions of the individual.

Without is connected to the element of air and the external logical, and reasonable sides of the individual.
