I appreciate that we’ll be reconnecting as we head into summer, my favorite season, and the time of the Fire element. It seems especially appropriate and timely given the current state of the world.
Fire is about sharing good times, feeling joy and happiness. This energy is about connection, relationships and trust. I think most of us, to varying degrees, have been missing this in the time of covid-19. All of can use a dose of Fire right about now.
A healthy Fire wants to laugh, play, be silly and feel the warmth the sun and other people. This energy is about spontaneity and being in the moment. Fire isn't so much about thinking it out first, but about being excited and going for it.
This energy requires a new level of emotional openness and vulnerability. This can be challenging for many of us. Somewhere along our way to adulthood, many of us unconsciously became guarded, or uncomfortable being silly and playful. We may have become worried about how others might understand or judge us. Now is the time to relax these concerns: let your guard down and relearn how to be playful and trusting.
These months of isolation have heightened our need to reconnect and feel the warmth of the sun and our connections with one another. But, as we move into this summer, and befitting the challenges of Fire constitutions we will experience a mix of excitement and challenge of how to engage freely while being limited due to the pandemic. Let the Fire energy feed your spirit, allowing you to connect with ourselves and others more freely and fully.
