Next up in our Energetics of Elemental Magick series, we move from the North and the element of Earth to the East – the element of Air and the Mental Realm.
Fire has been on my mind a lot this past week after receiving news from a friend that an arsonist attempted to burn down her home while she was at work.
Luckily firefighters were able to get her dog out safely and stopped the fire before it destroyed the entire property. Still, the damage is immense. Entire walls are gone and charred debris and ash clutter the floors.
A potent reminder of Fire’s volatility and uncontrollable nature.
Like all of the elements, Fire is both life-giving and destructive. We couldn’t have evolved the way we did without it. But it also has the potential to destroy everything.
Another potent reminder that nature is neither good or bad. It simply is.
As a Sagittarius Moon and Leo Rising, Fire is one of my favorite elements – even when I fly too close to the sun and burn myself out.
I love it because it reminds me I AM ALIVE. When I am connected to my Fire, my spirit, my desires, my passion for life, there is an undeniable spark that lights everything up!
In the Yin expression of Fire, we are fully expressed and magnetic in our shakti life force energy. This is our passion and creativity, emanating from the sacral chakra. It is the power and vitality of our sexuality and our vivaciousness and lust for life.
In the Yang expression, it is all about taking direct action. It is dynamic and constantly in motion, urging you to take the next step. It is our solar plexus chakra and willpower to get shit done. It is the phoenix rising from the ashes, burning away everything that no longer serves.
Calling upon Fire, we can cleanse and purify everything we are ready to release. Well, hopefully you’re ready because it will force you to change no matter what! It is an initiator that pushes us to grow into our most empowered, courageous, expressed selves.
To tap into the energy of Fire, we must never be too far away from our true desires. This element urges us to follow our turn ons and fuck the world with our penetrative presence and determination. Take some time to feel yourself and tune in to where your pulsing heart and fiery loins are leading you.
How to Connect with Fire
- Light up your intentions with Candle Magick! It can be as simple as lighting a colored candle that corresponds to the energy you’re calling in.
- Dance around the fire like witches always have and feel the warmth of the flames on your skin.
- Spend time out in the sun in the heat of the day (but don’t forget your SPF!)
- Write out your fears and limiting beliefs, your pains and angers, and everything you want to release then set it aflame and watch it incinerate.
- Touch yourself and feel into your animalistic desires or raise energy for your manifestations with sex magick
