Your Sun sign keys you into understanding the fundamental energy that you run on. There are four basic different categories of this energy: Earth, Water, Air and Fire. Start with understanding your element and then move on to understand it’s specific qualities within your sign.
Today we are taking a look at the energy of Fire.
Fire energy is excitable and motivating. There is dramatic charge with Fire. Fire energy needs inspiration and action to get moving. It is the most outward (yang), it needs to express.
Cardinal Fire: Aries. Cardinal energy as we have learned is all about INITIATION. With initiative fire we arrive at the archetype of the pioneer. Boldly going where no one has gone before. One who embraces new beginnings with courage and gusto.
Double Aries Marlon Brando was wearing jeans and white t-shirts way before everyone else. He embodied a style of rock n roll before rock n roll was even happening! This is the spirit of Aries.
Fixed Fire: Leo. Leo is naturally associated with the Sun. The Sun is Fixed Fire, a.k.a Fire MAINTAINED and burning bright. Leo energy basks in the limelight, exudes a natural confidence and celebrates it’s own radiance with play and spontaneity.
Double Leo Halle Berry visibly exudes the Leonine confidence in the manner she carries herself and communicates. It’s no wonder that she often lands roles in which she is supposed to show this kind of energy, whether it’s as a Bond-girl or a sly and stealthy “Catwoman”.
Mutable Fire: Sagittarius. If inspirational and excitable Fire energy is constantly ADAPTING, REFINING and CHANGING itself we may be looking at a person with strong and impassioned beliefs and opinions, based on what they’ve learned along life’s path. Sagittarius wants to learn, and identify itself with what it’s learned. But in the Mutable spirit- always continue learning, changing and evolving- hence we get the archetype of the free-spirited traveller, the student, or one who seeks more and more knowledge/ life experience.
Double Sagittarius, Jon Stewart’s fire burns strong as he explores all sorts of different structures of belief and opinion in response to current events. In the true spirit of Fire, he makes sure to always add a sparkling sense of humor to these thoughtful expeditions.
The next post will wrap up this Sun Sign series as we will explore the light and socially-inclined element of Air.
