WATER

The element of water is feminine. It is the element of emotion and subconscious, of purification, intuition, mysteries of the self, compassion and family. The Element of Water is a heavy, passive element and is contrary to Fire. It is associated with the qualities of darkness, thickness and motion. The wisdom of water is infinite, and you will find it if you invest the time to meditate and contemplate it’s vastness your rewards will be quite enlightening (if not enlightenment itself).

Our bodies are composed of about 70% water, a similar percentage to that of the ocean surface compared to land. Blood and sap are really variations of water. As much as we drink it, wash, fish and swim in it, and cook with it, we nearly always overlook the special relationship water has with our lives. There are a hundred times as many water molecules in our bodies than the sum of all the other molecules put together. Although water is the most familiar of liquids, it is also the most mysterious and least understood.

For many reasons, water meaning deals with intuition, psychic perception and dreams. What happens under the surface of water is a mystery to the unaided eye. It’s much the same with human emotions. Water reminds us to dive beneath the surface of our feelings and use intuition for better understanding.

Free-flowing rivers, meandering their way through nature’s peaks and valleys are often seen as some of Earth’s most serene wonders. The gentle waves tumbling over rocks and the glistening reflection of the world around makes water a true natural beauty.

However, like most things beautiful, below the surface many complexities often arise and the same is true when talking about the water zodiac signs, which in the world of astrology comprises of three different signs: x, Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces.

  • Cancer: June 22–July 22.
  • Scorpio: October 23–November 21.
  • Pisces: February 19–March 20.

The water signs are known for being sensitive and emotional. They tend to hold on to people and items long past their expiration dates, and their emotions are always flowing like the waves of the oceans. These signs have intense dreams, visions, and intuition so strong that it’s basically a psychic power. Security is important to them after all, water needs a container, or it dries up and disappears.

Spiritually water represents change. Water is always moving, just like the circumstances and events of our lives. The sea can appear extremely rough one day, but the next morning it’ll be calm again and it will look like nothing ever happened. The same goes for our everyday life. The storm will eventually die down and make room for clarity and calmness. 

When we swim it is water that supports us, when we are thirsty, it is water the quenches our thirst, another manifestation of this element is the rainstorms that drench us, or the dew formed on plants after the sun has set. As well as being vital for life, within the energy of this element is contained the essence of love. Love is the underlying reason for all magic. Water is love.

Water also symbolizes purity. It is literally the most important element we use to clean and wash ourselves. However, what most people don’t realize, is that water possesses a healing property towards the spirit as well. Even just looking at water can help calm you down and make you feel more connected with your true life purpose.

 The powerful element of water is finally becoming widely acknowledged as the incredible vehicle for consciousness that it actually is.  Like many things in life, it was right in front of us the whole time, but it was not until we became aware of it’s existence that we were finally able to finally see it.

One of the most beautiful lessons water can teach us his how to be flexible and embrace change. Consider: Water always takes on the form in which it is held. It can also carve out mountains to make its way forward. Water reminds us to go with the flow no matter what the situation.

Water is a relatively simple element with which to work. When you are stressed out, just wash those energies off your hands. By turning water warm, you add the Fire element. Once, released, cool the water for regenerative and invigorating vibes. Speaking if vibes, the element of water matches with Master number 22. In numerology, 22 is the builder. It takes our dreams and aspirations and helps us manifest them just as the water element does.

It is the restlessness of water that gives living systems the ability to become ever more complex and to strive towards the perfection they can never reach. As a driver of evolution, water is a model for our own striving, allowing us to evolve through our own mistakes. This is the self-empowerment on it’s own.

If we could personally experience and truly understand the miraculous properties of water for life, our lives would become more meaningful and, (if it is not too late) we could become responsible custodians of Nature.

In Tarot, the traditional Suit of Cups is the suit of water. It is receptive, a vessel, and a symbol of the deep, primordial unconscious mind and womb. Water shows us the images, or imprint, of things. Emotions, feelings, and psychic knowledge are all represented by water in the Tarot tradition.

Water flows and changes, and it carries away what it cleanses. Water is the great purifier. We wash away our sins, we cleanse our wounds, and our tears bring release.

Fire

The element of fire relates to will and power. The passion, the electromagnetic field of presence.The power of the tongue! Fire is,expansive, intense and constantly seeking to overcome anything that limits its self-expression.

Fire provided a source of warmth, protection from predators, a way to create more advanced hunting tools and a method for cooking food. These cultural advances allowed cultural innovations and changes to human diet and behavior.

Because fire warms and gives off light like the sun, it often represents the sun or a sun god in mythology. It is linked with the idea of the hearth, the center of a household. Fire can also be a symbol of new life, as in the case of the phoenix, the mythical bird that is periodically destroyed by flames to rise reborn from its own ashes.

It can also represent bravery, beginnings and drive. Fire is active energy. It houses beings called Salamanders that dance inside with joy until the source burns no more. In Feng Shui the Element of Fire embodies our enthusiasm, warm feelings, movement and spiritual radiance. The Fire is alive and gives birth to new life and new ideas.

Fire Signs:

Aries – March 21 – April 20

Leo – July 23 – August 23

Sagittarius – November 23 – December 21

A Fire sign individual (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius) is an indicator of someone filled with creativity. This element manifests itself in creative and unique ways, and those in its glow are wonderfully courageous and lively spirits. Those influenced by a Fire sign are self-sufficient, spontaneous and possess a tremendous zest for life. Natives of this component are passionate and could even be compared to volcanoes, especially when their enthusiasm turns into a form of aggressiveness.

Fire represents many things to many people and cultures. It is recognized as a purifier, a destroyer and as the generative power of life, energy and change. It represents illumination and enlightenment, destruction and renewal, spirituality and damnation”.

What is spiritual fire, where does it come from and why does it drive us to seek greater purpose? Why do we search for meaning in our lives? Why does it seem like we have a spiritual fire burning a hole in our souls? Really, why should we do this? It holds no immediate gratification to find meaning in life and yet many are seeking.


Fire is one of God’s greatest gifts to humanity. With fire we cook food, heat our homes, and destroy garbage that would otherwise overwhelm us. Likewise, the gift of speech is of great benefit. With our tongues we communicate information, express affection,praise and curse. A tongue under control can speak life and truth into our world, bless and discipline our children, and transfer the wisdom. But, like fire out of bounds, our tongues can also do great damage.

How do you use this element in your life?

The fundamental elements of our nature

You must have heard about five elements of nature and I am sure you have some basic understanding about it as well. Every visible thing was made up of some combination of earth, water, air, and fire. These four out of five elements were even used to describe the four temperaments a person could have. However, when it comes to body cleansing process or any other natural healing process, there are 5 elements of nature that plays a very important part of the whole ( aka HOLE we dwell in..) In this post, you will learn about those basic but very important concept of our body.

In reality, we do yoga to strengthen our body and we practice meditation for peace of mind, but do we know about the most important elements from which our body is made?

Every human body is essentially made from five elements which are Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Space and upon death all these 5 elements of the human body is dissolved to it’s respective element of nature, so that it can balance the cycle of nature.

Each of these five elements has its own functions and characteristic as described below:

The first element is “Earth”. This element is perceived by five senses. which are Sight, Smell, Taste, Hear and Touch. The physical body with muscles and bones refers to Earth. ( If you think earth is just the planet or ground or world we live in, you couldn’t be more wrong. Earth is the skin that covers your bones,blood , tissues and organs etc.) Earth is the external manifestation of OUR HOME.

The second most important element is “Water”. This element has no odor (smell) but can be heard, felt, seen and tasted. In the human body, blood and other fluid are refer to Water. As we all have been told or even studied, our body contains up to 60% of water. The surface of the earth also covers almost 60% of water or more, what does that tell you ? ( Our bodies, aka Planet Earth cannot survive without over average % of water which contains half air) same as the external surface of the earth we dwell on. hmmm..

The next higher element in human body is “Fire”. In human body our temperature is referred to as the fire. It can be heard, felt and seen. (Internally, our digestive system is a very good example of Fire element that helps our body digest the food we take everyday). The heat, passion and zeal that is required to do anything externally refers to the fire element. We simply cannot do without it! The combination of these elements are the cause of weather change, planetary shifts etc..

The fourth element is “Air”. Air can be felt and heard only, one cannot see air. In the human body, the oxygen and carbon dioxide in the body refers to Air. It is considered as one of the most important factor in life. As we know that the human body can not live without Oxygen which is known as Prana in Sankstrit and this is why one must do regular breathing, mental and physical exercises to keep their body’s Oxygen rich and to prevent diseases.

The fifth and last element is “Space” which is translated in Sanskrit at ‘aakash‘. Space is the medium of sound but is inaccessible to all other senses, and in the human body the Soul refers to Space.

The combination of these 5 elements of nature make up our body and will (a.k.a the wheel of life) ie “our willpower”. These elements in our body will dissolve into their respective elements upon death.

Our fascination with these elements has also led to countless theories that have been created revolving around one or more of these elements for centuries. One of such area of elemental study incorporates philosophical connections to human life, with the individual elements being associated with various personality types. The most notorious of which is Fire, is synonymous with having a fiery personality and being overly-emotional or easily triggered. The Earth type is grounded and they possess strong maternal, and protective instincts. Water types are fluid and easy-going, oftentimes they are the more balanced ones. The Air type is a rational, free-thinker who can see the big picture with more clarity than the other element types.

The elements inside and outside of our bodies are all the same. Awaken to your divinity as a whole!! We are all individually part of a bigger picture..

In my next post, i’ll be diving deep into the world behind all the above mentioned elements.

With love..
