Water is, of all the elements, the most clearly transitional, between fire and air (the ethereal elements) and earth (the solid element). Water as a symbol of the collective or of the personal unconscious. Secondary symbolisms are derived from associated objects such as water-containers, and also from the ways in which water is used: ablutions, baths, holy water, etc. There is also a very important spatial symbolism connected with the ‘level’ of the waters, denoting a correlation between actual physical level and absolute moral level.
