Elements and Ogham

The Druid tradition has 5 elements:
Air, Fire, Water, Earth, Spirit

Each of these goes through five combinations, e.g.:

Spirit of Air
Fire of Air
Air of Air
Water of Air
Earth of Air

Thiese are linked with the first five letters of the Ogham alphabet: BLFSN

The next five combinations produce

Spirit of Fire
Fire of Fire
Air of Fire
Water of Fire
Earth of Fire

These are linked with the next five letters of the Ogham alphabet: HDTCQ.

Combinations of elements thus underly the Ogham Alphabet.


In the Druid magical tradition the sequence is sometimes arranged as:

Air, Spirit, Earth, Water, Fire
