The fire element represents pure, raw power.
There is nothing placid or calm about fire: It is creation and destruction, an energy that operates in extremes.
Anger and action. Passion and lust. The divine spark. The sun. A spiritual purifier and clearer of obstacles. That which transforms all things into something else.
Heat produced by fire has been the key component in alchemy since ancient times. In myth it was stolen by Prometheus from the Gods, and shared with humanity, bringing them out of the darkness of ignorance and suffering. It brings light into the dark, the terrors of the night, and banishes our fear.
As a fire dragon sign in the Chinese zodiac, and a Leo sun with an Aries moon, I know fire well. I sometimes joke that it’s only my Libra ascendant that keeps me from burning the world down (in my time I have had to work on that Highlander temper, lol)!
In my work and purpose, I see myself as a light that’s shining against the darkness. And I will hold.
A colleague once showed me, too, how to sever cords and attachments from the aura with a flame of a candle. And another one taught me how to clear the energy of a space with flame and burning salts (NOT for the faint of heart!).
