The summer and fire energy is more warm, active, physical and passionate than any other season. The days are long and light with very few hours of darkness. Nature’s energy is at its peak. Try to match it with yours!
The Fire element is all about heat and energy; a time to live life to the full, stay up later and get up earlier. A chance to soak up energy from the sun, and absorb oxygen and perfumes from the outdoors while everything is in full bloom. This is the time to create energy and power which will carry us into the harvesting of the late summer and then the storing of your resources in the autumn for the long winter ahead.
Traditionally, summer was the time of year when we all worked outdoors for long hours spending time in the healthy sun and then, after work, it was the time to; dance, sing and party, have fun, be in love, with plenty of laughter — the food of the soul, providing the extra momentum when needed and the feeling of internal joy and happiness! It delights in the richness of the moment.
The colour associated with the season is red, which has the ability to stimulate the pulse and heart rate. Hence the saying to ‘paint the town red’, inferring to celebrate and go out partying.
This is to balance calm with being, adaptable, friendly, outgoing, warm, peaceful, charming, spontaneous, vibrant, expressive and joyful!
If summer was a person, their nature would be someone who loves to enjoy rather than strive. They move and operate from the heart, which makes them open but sometimes vulnerable. Their strength is that they are warm, empathetic, joyful and exuberant. They can perform with passion and are able to draw out the positive and the hopeful in others and be extremely persuasive. They focus outwards, can be extremely charming, and love to communicate and elicit people’s co-operation. In the extreme they can manipulate. They have charisma and tend to easily grasp the whole picture and can ignite the actions of others with compassion
