Summer is a time when our fire element is strong. Its a time of passion, dancing, it feels good to be alive, a time of high spirits, to go out to events, we wake early and enjoy the long days. The fire energy is meant to open the heart and bring warmth and joy to our inner being. There is a sense of respect for ourselves and others. However sometimes the fire gets too hot - we feel impatient and hurried which can lead to a type of arrogance, disregarding or feeling frustration with people, rage and hatred. We can appear edgy, merciless or stern especially if we can’t express our passion for life and have fun. An overheated fire element can put pressure on the physical heart and the circulatory system and cause our hormones to go out of balance. Water is the element that balances this heat: swimming, walking by the water, gazing at the sea, taking a bath or drinking water cools our fire. Water moistens our heart and stops it from getting too dry. If our spirits become to elevated and we are prone to big highs and lows, then ground yourself by gardening, cooking or doing a craft.
