The Element of Fire
When speaking about the element of Fire, we have to keep in mind that this is the only element that shines. Water can sparkle, that’s true, but only if it reflects the light created by Fire, whether a campfire or the Sun as an enormous fiery celestial body.
This is the element that represents energy itself, and even though there is a lot of earthly energy in the element of Water, it cannot be compared with the amount of energy that lives in the Sun, even though they might be equally important to the human race.
The element of Fire is represented in the zodiac through Aries, Leo and Sagittarius. These signs truly uplift the strength of the Sun and each individual born as one of these Sun signs has an assignment to nurture and cherish their emotional side. They often have to be trained for compassion and a deeper understanding of other people, and have basic problems in relationships triggered by their need to give more than they should to those who didn’t ask for anything.
Each fiery individual has to use their energy solely on their own life, unless if somebody asks for their advice and engagement. Of all three, Sagittarius is the most giving, for they are at the end of this Fire trine, already learned so much, with a strong life philosophy and numerous good intentions.
How Do We Balance Fire?
This is the first element with strong masculine energy, and it easily neglects the feminine principles within, burning everything around a person and making all the Water in their body and life evaporate. A life without love isn’t worth living, and in order to make them happier, all fiery people have to respect their emotional side and acknowledge their emotional needs. In the outer world, this translates to their relation to women, suppression of the feminine principle on a wider scale, leading to all sorts of conflicts that ultimately take human life.
The biggest challenge for anyone guided by the element of Fire is to remain calm and peaceful along the way. With a strong need to move forward, people born with an ascendant or many planets in Fire tend to forget that passive approach is needed as much as an active one. Therapy could do miracles here, for they don’t lack awareness or the excitement when they learn something new and get an opportunity to save or recycle some of their wasted energy.
