Clouds

April 30, 2011 § Leave a comment

Clouds, because of their tendency to change appearance – always being in a state of metamorphosis – are symbolic of indeterminate things. They are an intermediate between formal and non formal, because of their elusive state of being. Another symbolic function of clouds is the obscuring of processes (like the mask that hides the process of transformation/metamorphosis, see: Chrysalis).

They represent the combination of two elements; the fusion of Air and Water. Since water and heat (fire) combined, produce steam (clouds), the “Mist of Fire” is representative of all the non-solid elements: air, fire, water.

Clouds are sometimes described as the Upper Waters.
