The athame is associated with bothFire and Air. depending on the tradition.Those who link it with Air are drawing from the symbolism of pre-Wiccan esoteric systems like that found in the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, which was a major influence on Wicca. Because sharpness is associated with intellect—the domain of Air—and because the athame directs energy through its movements in the air, this association feels the most authentic for many Wiccans.
