Fire

Masculine
DESCRIPTION- Fire embodies passion, enthusiasm and desire. It is both heat and light". The harnessing of fire is the one act in the history of man that marks his change from animal to human; it represents both the light of intelligence and the courage to follow it. It is the spark of passion and initiative. Fire shares with water some kind of intrinsic quality of life: fire makes things warm, water lush and full, and together they make them alive. Just as in the case of low water functioning, low fire functioning does not impair a person's basic ability to survive, but it drastically impairs the capability to enjoy life. Excessive fire is dangerous as fire destroys everything in its wake, but poor fire is just as unhappy: a poor fire person is cold, slow to act or passive, without enthusiasm for his life and himself. Fire magic will help to regain the spark of initiative, bring courage and passion, help to destroy the old and go ahead with the new.
BASIC NATURE- Fire is the creator and the destroyer. It warms our homes, cooks our food, and fuels our passions. Unlike the other elements, Fire cannot exist in physical form without consuming something else. Thus, fire transforms objects into new forms: heat, light, ash, and smoke. On a sunny day, go outside at noon and press your receptive hand against a warm rock. Smell the smoke from a burning fire. Gaze into a candle's flame. Immerse yourself in Fire energy, and realize that it also exists within us. Fire must be controlled to be of benefit to us. When we light a candle, we call upon its powers but also limit them. This is necessary if its physical forms are to be of use. A raging forest fire actually helps the Earth, clearing away underbrush and encouraging dormant seeds to burst into new life. Purifying, destructive, cleansing, energetic, sexual, and forceful. Heat is a manifestation of this element.
ATTRIBUTES- Fire is the element of change and strong passions. It is creativity, motivation, will power, drive and sensuality. It is sexuality, both physical and spiritual.
