The elemental runes are not opposed, but rather in a rock-scissors-paper kind of relationship. I don't remember completely, but off the top of my head (and this is probably wrong), Air "defeats" Water "defeats" Earth "defeats" Fire "defeats" Darkness "defeats" Air. The Moon sits in the center of the pentagram/pentagon.

Only the Power Runes are opposed (Fertility-Death, Harmony-Disorder, etc).
