A cauldron is a black cast iron pot, with three legs used by witches or those of the occult to cast spells, brew potions, and hold offerings. A cauldron is often associated with the four elements that consist of earth, air, fire, and water.
|The Four Elements|
|Earth – The earth element provides herbs and berries for potions.|
|Air – is needed to keep the fire burning.|
|Fire – is needed to heat the materials in the cauldron.|
|Water – is needed to provide the water for brewing within the cauldron.|
The cauldron has a long history in the craft for many witches, as it represents the four elements and is most often used within a circle on an altar. The cauldron can hold the elements and transform them into food or a potion and is often relative to transformative change. The cauldron represents the feminine because of this regeneration to some pagans and Wiccans.
