The East corresponds to the element Air, to the mind, dawn, spring, to pale, airy colors, white and violet, to the eagle and high-flying birds, and the power of knowledge. It is connected to the rising of the sun and moon. East is the portal to enlightenment. Some Witchcraft Traditions orient their alters toward the East, while others have them facing North. A.G.H.
