There are four basic magical Elements: Fire, Water, Air, and Earth They are the basic modes of existence and action the building blocks of everything in the universe. (These Elements are not to be confused with the scientists table of elements, which are only the most materialized expressions of the Elements in the physical plane.)

Qualities of Water: passive, feminine, receptive, sustaining, subconscious, creative, fluidic, and generative. In an esoteric sense, the concept of water implies all liquid materials. Furthermore, the primeval waters, the image of all primal matter, contains all solid bodies before they obtain rigidity and form. The so-called fluid body of man is translated by modern psychology as a symbol of the unconscious or the archetypal feminine side of the personality. Water is seen as a symbol of the Maternal, the Great Mother, as well as the great unfathomable and mysterious well of Wisdom contained within the subconscious mind. In short, water symbolizes the infinite realm of possibilities, which precede all form and all creation.It is limitless and immortal the Waters of Creation. Submersion in water alludes to a return to the pre-formed state. Like the Element of Fire, Water also symbolizes the ideas of transfiguration and regeneration. The direction or cardinal point assigned to Water is West. Excerpts from the book Self-Initiation into the Golden Dawn Tradition

The Cup is based in part on Egyptian Lotus designs. The Cup has eight lotus petals painted blue ornamented with orange.
