Elements

The four elements of astrological tradition refer to the vital forces (or energies) that make up the entire creation that is commonly perceived by human beings. The four elements in a birth chart reveal the ability to participate in certain realms of being and to tune in to specific fields of life experience. These elements have nothing to do with the elements of chemistry and in fact transcend them completely.

The four elements—Fire, Earth, Air, and Water—each represent a basic kind of energy and consciousness that operates within everyone. Each person is consciously more attuned to some types of energy than others.

The element of any sign that is emphasized in a chart (by significant planetary placement in that sign) shows a specific type of consciousness and method of perception to which the individual is strongly attuned.

Fire

A lack of fire usually manifests as a lack of spiritedness, a tendency not to trust life itself. The joy of living is often markedly absent, and the person is often devoid of faith and optimism. Self-confidence may also be poor, and there is often a tendency towards despondency and lack of enthusiasm for meeting life's demands. Challenges often scare these people, and any major life problem takes a long while to overcome, since the residual psychological effects tend to linger long after the experience has reached its peak. A lack of fire is almost always indicative of a major problem in the way the person approaches life. Vigorous physical exercise tends to stimulate the fiery energy and is highly recommended for this type of person. The diet should also be watched carefully , especially if the person also lacks earth,The element fire refers to a universal radiant energy which is excitable, enthusiastic and which through its light brings color into the world. This element has been correlated with the dynamic core of psychic energy by C.G Jung, that energy which flows spontaneously in an inspired, self-motivated way. The fire signs exemplify high spirits, great faith in themselves. They need a great deal of freedom in order to express themselves. They also are able to direct their will power consciously better than other signs.Too much emphais on fire is rarely felt to be a problem by the individual until it is too late to do anything about it. This could manifest asburning yourself out, leaving an exhausted shell of a person, especially if alcohol or drugs are abused. They tend to be overly active, restless, and overly concerned with making something happen in the world. Too much fire can also lead to problems in dealing with others, for the impulsiveness, selfcenteredness, and unrestrained desire to act directly at all costs can give rise to an extremely insensitive, crude way of approaching other people.
