Personally, I have discovered all roads lead back to the elements. Below, please find the results of my contemplations regarding each element and how it relates to the signs and planets.
Ether is a medium that fills the spaces where nothing exists. Its not something we can reach out and touch, yet its all around us, we draw upon it to create. Scientists study ether in an effort to understand the movement of light, while spiritual people draw light through ether to connect with God. The Universe is infinite, therefor so is ether.

The panchanga at the time of birth describes the energies of one’s life and how they may be used most auspiciously. Panchanga is Sanskrit for five limbs: pancha = five and anga = limbs.
Panchanga is the five ways that celestial light influences the matter of the world:
