That’s my younger Fire self in full action!! Fire is filled with passion, action, creativity, pride, adventure, curiosity, and optimism. Fire is also an element we are often afraid of, or taught to be afraid of.
Another part of Fire can show up as impulsiveness, bluntness, and anger. I know this all too well!… Even though I’m a double water sign my chart is filled with Fire.
Anger was my go-to emotional coping mechanism as a kid. I’ve not only been in continual practice of softening my anger but also embracing its amazing benefits. If not for the Fire in my chart I swear I’d be a crying, sensitive, depressed mess tucked-in under my blankets at home never wanting to leave to avoid feeling all the swirling energies of the world around me…. Oh lordy, my Pisces Sun & Cancer Moon! Thank you Aries Rising!
So I love those that, like myself, come in wired with their roaring passion and spiciness! Especially when we’ve learned to come into our hearts and use anger for conscious acts. It’s ok to embrace your Fire when it shows up as anger because it’s usually the first signal that something is amiss and a boundary has been crossed.
Finding the balance is key, and although not intentional, it’s good to check in when we might be using it as a weapon. When we’ve stumbled into a rub with a friend or family member and we feel angry, are we able to be with it and explore the boundary that has been muddied and bring it to the relationship for discussion? Or do we just hold it in tight and resent them, or stir up the ‘I’ll get them back’ attitude?
Fire is an amazing transformational agent. It’s a spiritual power. So try not to be alarmed or afraid when you feel anger in your body. It is a boundary show-er and can be a part of healing. The Fire element is often exactly what you need to get you into the action, decision, or direction for your life. Remember, Fire fights for Love… it fights for passion!
Big Love 🖤
What I’m about to share are a couple profound experiences (teachings!) I witnessed as a young adult. It is with sincere thanks to my family for always allowing me to be who I AM. And for the courage in each of you to always be with ‘what is’.
Alright, I’ve been wanting to get this in ink for quite awhile. I’m calling BS. Technically I’ve written about this topic in various ways over the years but this time, well, it may feel harsh, direct, or not as gentle as usual, but… it’s time.
It’s time to feel into what we are connecting with and what we are disconnecting from. Quite awhile back I had a bomb drop on my front doorstep. Well not literally a bomb but the visual of what arrived created an unexpected explosive sensation that could only be mimicked by the dropping of a bomb.
