The Elements Series: Fire

the-elements-series-fire-triple-moon-alchemy-blog-imageFire. Such a fierce element. The power to illuminate. The power to heat. The power to transform, to transmute. It converts the energy of objects into other forms. It refines. Even the smallest flame is grand in its power.

Fire is forever and always in active mode. Once it is formed, it grows and changes shape constantly. We use Fire to warm our homes and to cook our foods. All of the other elements can exist on their own. Fire can not exist in a raw natural state. Its physical form can only take place by consuming oxygen (Air).

Fire energy is masculine and is full of passion, zest, excitement, motivation and creativity.

The Sun is a huge fiery ball providing light and warmth to us all. Physically and spiritually. Fire is masculine energy (Sun), Water is feminine energy (Moon).  

Astrological Sun signs that have predominate Fire energy are

  • Aries
  • Leo
  • Sagittarius

In the best light, a person with predominate Fire energy is courteous, eloquent, polite and expressive. They can also be energetic, artistic, passionate, and easily excitable. Very much like Fire itself, those that possess abundant fire energy can rapidly change emotional states as well as become aggressive at times. They are drawn to sensual experiences and are attracted to drama and sentiment.

  • Ambitious
  • Aggressive

The Element of Fire is an ethereal and light active element and is contrary to Water. It’s direction is South. You can find an abundance of Fire energy in places like deserts, hot springs, volcanoes, ovens, fireplaces, anywhere sex is taking place, as well as weight rooms, locker rooms, and of course, saunas.

The element of Fire needs boundaries though. When we light a candle there is controlled Fire. The destructive nature of Fire is well know. This should be feared healthily and respectfully.

Fire is ruled by Venus the planet that governs passion. When performing magick that involves personal power, Fire should be involved. It is associated with endings/beginnings, bravery, and manifestation. Light a fire in the fireplace, or light those candles and dance like the salamanders with joy and renewal!!

fire-element-series-triple-moon-alchemy-blog-imageGrowing up,  my family home had an active fireplace. Although Winter is not my favorite time of year (too cold), lighting the fireplace was and still is one of my favorite things to do. The smell of the wood feeding the fire. Watching the flames dance and sway. Listening to the crackle and hiss of the wood…man it brings back such warm memories. Sitting in front of the fireplace having long conversations with my mother were some of the very best times of my life. Those years grew my affinity towards Fire and now, fire and I have a healthy relationship. Mine will always be the house with the fire pit ablaze! There is magick in the fire. Those of us lucky enough to experience it know…

Fire is alive and full of energy. We can use that energy to propel us forward through the cosmos and into the life that we envision. Be one with the Fire and dance like the salamanders. Ashe!
