Earth is one of the four Hellenic elements of ancient Greek ghilosophy, one of the founding bodies of knowledge upon which classical alchemy was based. It is associated with concepts of solidity, immovability, and the physical world. Its associations with ancient mystery cults and cthonic deities has also lent it significance in matters of sensuality and death.

Invert the symbol of earth to use it as the symbol of air. This symbol is linked with the atmosphere and its resultant weather, and is associated with intelligence as one of the Hellenic elements.
