Coven of the Unicorn's Realm

The Celtic accepted the following division being; three elements divided into three realms.

Air:    Wind             Water:  Sea         Earth:  Rock 
        Sky                      River               Soil
        Storm                    Spring              Wood

There are many ways that these can be divided, and variations on the system.

Realm   "element"       physical        spiritual

Land:   earth           flesh           body
        stone           bone            strength
        salt            nerves          fate

Sea:    water           blood           force
        rain            fluids          desire
        cloud           brain           consciousness

Sky:    sun             face            talent
        stars           eyes            path
        wind            breath          soul

These can be further broken down into three divisions of head/heart/hand(body), the three harp strains, and the three cauldrons, but those divisions aren't necessary. As I said, all of this is flexible and different sources from different periods will list different "elements" in different orders.

"Element" is misleading anyway. Rather than being a primal creative component in the universe (as earth/air/fire/water in ceremonial magick), "element" instead implies "created things within the universe." These are, as well, philosophical rather than physical divisions within Celtic religion.

I have chosen my path
The choices I made
They thrive as part of my soul
I can never change my roads
For I must make do with this string
The life I could have had
For better or worse
I know not the future
Nor the dimensions of time
I feel my parallel self
We are one in the same
Yet different in choice
We are both regretful
What may have happened
Though We are intertwined
Our roads can never cross
