The five cardinal points of Creation. In the North lies the Elemental Pole of Air, in the East lies the Elemental Pole of Wood, in the South the Elemental Pole of Fire, and in the West the Elemental Pole of Water. The Elemental Pole of Earth is the Imperial Mountain of the Blessed Isle and the omphalos, the axis of creation, around which the world revolves. As one moves away from the calm and stability of the Pole of Earth and closer to one of the four active poles, the active pole’s influence grows stronger and stronger.
