A series of 4 articles looking at each of the astrological elements…..
Each of the signs of the Zodiac resonates with one of the four elements, i.e. fire, earth, air and water.
Let’s begin with Fire. The fire signs are Aries, Leo and Sagittarius.
Aries lights the spark and sets things in motion, Leo radiates the warmth of the flickering candle and Sagittarius carries the torch of truth out into the world in the quest for enlightenment.
Represented in the Tarot deck by the wands or rods, the fire signs share a certain idealism and vision, shining their light into the future and brightening the dark corners with their optimistic and idealistic approach to life.
A lovely quote from Sagittarian, Winston Churchill, encapsulated this when he stated that “We are all worms, but I do believe that I am a glow worm”!
Independent and freedom loving, fire signs dislike restriction and have a strong dislike of being micromanaged. While being able to make a commitment to a vocational path or a cause, Fire signs need the stimulation of a vision or the call of an adventure, to drive them forward, to fire them up.
And contact with the other elements?
Earth can contain or put out the fire, water can douse it or create steam
Air can fan the flames and stimulate fiery passions and rhetoric
Too little fire and we can feel lacklustre and jaded, too much fire and we have a forest fire, suffering burnout.
And to finish – here’s a quote for the fire signs…
“Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.”
