Fall is the perfect time to connect to the elements and add balance to our lives. It’s elementary, my dear Odd reader, so please do read on.
Air, water, earth, and fire—we all have a cosmic connection to one of the four elements, each of which represents human qualities.
The element of air represents the intellect, the ability to respond to reason, logic, and order and to weigh one fact against the other in a logical, intelligent way.
Water represents the emotional side of our nature. Our inner feelings, sensitivities, and responses to other people and the environment.
Earth represents the physical side of human nature. Down to earth people tend to deal with life in tangible and concrete ways. They sow deep roots and nourish those around them. They are protectors
Fire governs the intuitive and spiritual sides of our nature. Fire also represents energy and activity. If you’re “all fired up,” you’re inspired and ready to go.
While we are all a little bit of each element, the date on which you were born determines your dominant element. I’ve broken these dates down for you.
THE NUMBER 1: Born on the 1st, 10th, 19th, or 28th of the month – Fire is your natural element, representing energy and force.
THE NUMBER 2: Born on the 2nd, 11th, 20th, or 29th of the month – Water is your natural element, representing feelings and emotions.
THE NUMBER 3: Born on the 3rd, 12th, 21st, or 30th of the month – Fire is your natural element, ruling force and energy.
THE NUMBER 4: Born on the 4th, 13th, 22nd, or 31st of the month – Air is your natural element, representing mental and intellectual qualities.
THE NUMBER 5: Born on the 5th, 14th, or 23rd of the month – Air is your natural element, ruling thinking and mental activities.
THE NUMBER 6: Born on the 6th, 15th, or 24th of the month – Earth is your natural element, governing practical and down-to-earth ways of dealing with things.
THE NUMBER 7: Born on the 7th, 16th, or 25th of the month – Water is your natural element, representing deep thoughts and inner feelings.
THE NUMBER 8: Born on the 8th, 17th, or 26th of the month – Earth is your natural element, governing methodical and practical ways.
THE NUMBER 9: Born on the 9th, 18th, or 27th of the month – Fire is your natural element, denoting intuition, spirit, and energy.
Here is an example of how the elements offer us insights into ourselves and our relationships.
My element is earth. My teen’s element is water. Our water leak crisis gave me an opportunity to observe how we each approached the element of water. Cole puzzled over the leaking water. He was slow to action. I fully expected him to make paper boats to sail along the leaks as he pondered where to put the next sand bag. I searched for water sources and sandbagged every puddle in an effort to protect our abode. Cole’s element demands introspection, while my element demands that I act and protect.. Our different approaches can be frustrating. A fresh breath of air would add reason, order, and logic to our water strategies.
Now, it’s your turn. Does your element suit you? What element would bring more balance to your life?
Stay tune, we’ll talk more about the elements, numbers, and synchronicity in upcoming posts. I’ll read tarot cards for Odd Readers on October 23, 30. Click over to see how the Lunar and solar Eclipse will influence our sun signs this month.
