The element of fire shows up in mythological stories all across the world, often in stories related to the sun.

There are five basic elements within pagan religions. These elements are not to be confused with science lab chemical elements.
These five elements are also represented at the five points of the pentagram.  These five elements are air, earth, fire, spirit and water.

Four of these five elements correspond to the cardinal points of the sacred circle, the fifth (ether or spirit) relates to the centre and circumference of the circle. These elements can be thought of as natural energy in different states of being.

Fire represents energy, inspiration, love, passion and leadership. In rituals- fire is represented in the forms of burning objects... love spells, baking, lighting candles and fires.

Fire is also the element of change. Actually it represents magick itself. Fire is the most physical and spiritual of the Elements.
It has been an important part of all cultures and religions from pre-history to modern day and was vital to the development of civilization. 
Fire is a masculine element - its aspects being change, passion, creativity, motivation, will power, drive and sensuality. It is sexuality, both physical and spiritual. Fire is used in spells, rituals and candle magick for healing, purification, sex, breaking bad habits or destroying illness and disease. Fire is the element of authority and leadership.
Have you ever sat around a campfire with your friends... as you all fall into contemplative silence? If so - you have felt the magick of Fire.

To feel the manifestations of this power, go out on on sunny day and feel the warmth and light of the Sun.
