In my last post, i wrote about the elements and what they generally are..Everything on our planet (EARTH) is comprised of the first four, or the classical elements- Fire, Water, Earth, and Air.[-the 5th being Space a.k.a. spirit}. Various states and combinations of them make up the first four. We get Darkness and Light through Fire. Water gives us Ice, and Earth gives us Nature. These elements are vital for human survival, they make life possible, and death inevitable. However, today we are focusing on Earth, (the planet we live in a.k.a, our BODY) and the personality types that best resonate with this element.
Planet Earth is one of the unique planets in the Solar System because of the presence of abundant water resources to sustain life ( p:s , The oxygen we breathe contains 47% water.) The structure of the Earth is like an onion; it has multiple layers. Scientifically the earth is made up of mostly these four elements : Oxygen, silicon,iron and aluminum. The earth´s atmosphere however is composed of 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen, 0.9% argon, 0.3% carbon dioxide and traces of other elements and particles. Which basically means we are all just a bunch of elements!! and it’s important to which are the elements make you, YOU!
THE EARTH ELEMENT: Practical
TAURUS (April 20-May 20),
VIRGO (August 23-September 22),
CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19)
While each element often carries distinctive connotations depending on cultural settings, there are some commonalities.
Earth energies facilitate all manner of manifestation by putting down strong roots from which our dreams grow into reality.
That is not to say that the Earth Element has nothing but positive characteristics. It can be fierce. Just watch a volcano erupt or the damage from a quake. This kind of power is why it is so important to respect our mother (you know the old saying: it’s not nice to fool Mother Nature).
The Earth is stable and reliable, yet constantly working and moving. Those with the Earth element share these traits. You are practical and logical and stand firm in your convictions. You learn through experience, which is never difficult for a curious person like yourself. You aren’t interested in unrealistic dreams, but rather you believe in setting achievable goals that are attained through hard work. Your home is welcoming and warm and always open to friends and family, which is fitting considering you’re a bit of a homebody.You are stubborn and bull-headed and will often stick to your position for no other reason than it is your position.
Earth Magical Properties: growth, femininity, prosperity, birth, fertility, stability, grounding, finances, death, motherhood.
Magical Tools: salt, pentacle, stones/crystals
The earth element works in conjunction with all other elements to sustain life on this planet. Think about how earth works with the others: earth feeds fire, requires water for growth, produces air (trees/plants) in conjunction with water. But can also suffocate fire and air and impede water. We live on the earth, our feet and homes planted in the soil, and grow our food in the earth. Without earth, we would not survive. Earth is nurturing, grounding, loving, growing, replenishing, moving, sowing, and reaping and no matter what zodiac sign you represent you are EARTH ! as in your skin is ..
