Metaphysically, we generally do not state that water and air are compatible. Air likes to be lite and free while water can be dense and deep. Yet, water and air interact all the time as do all the other elements. Air is composed of mostly nitrogen with oxygen and traces of water vapor and other components. Water is composed of 2 hydrogen atoms with 1 oxygen atom. These two elements, physically and metaphorically are similar in composition. Water and air act as transportation vessels for each other. Each allowing the other to move from one phase, space, or form to another. Sometimes this can happen forcefully such as during hurricanes or tornadoes but generally it is a calmer activity. Utilize what you need from the interaction of water and air. Regardless of whether it is a gentle or intense interaction, the results will be powerful.
