Too much of the Fire element in the summer needs balancing
Fire in abundance may spark impulsive behavior, even aggression or violence. It can be balanced by adding the Earth element to calm its effects. In the cold winter Fire is a welcoming balancing element, used as candles, lights or fireplaces to bring warmth and light into the environment and into our hearts. When Fire is low or missing, it can reflect coldness, darkness or even fear.
The Fire element is proof positive of being alive
The Fire element is an important component to all living organisms, but especially animals and humans. If your personal chart is low in or lacking the Fire element or its Grantor element, Wood, you can balance it in many ways:
- Your daily occupation or career choice
- Choice of relationship partners
- Surrounding yourself with friends abundant in those warmer elements
- Adoption or working with animals, pets
- much more….
