The fire of incandescence and luminosity is here! In nature the Fire Element is related to the season of Summer when yang energies are at their greatest with the heat and long sunlit hours.

Just like the flames of a fire, this season’s energy gifts us with dynamic enthusiasm, movement, joyful expansion, charisma, activity, desire, passion, laughter, love, and ecstatic bliss.

It’s the season of numinous and luminous light, warmth and affection burning on the altar of our hearts. When our fire element is healthy and balanced, we feel happy, compassionate, light and playful.

To make the very most of the seasons’ blessings you can…

  • Paste up images of the gorgeous phoenix, the immortal bird of transformation, and be inspired for alchemical transformation within yourself.
  • Wear red — lipstick, nail varnish, jewelry or clothing.
  • Watch comedies or host a game night and laugh, laugh, laugh!
  • Have a love affair or refresh the one you’re in!
  • Balance your fire element if you get overheated and go swimming in a cold river or pool.
  • Use the fire element for clearing, cleansing and purifying with smoke. Light incense to cleanse a space.
  • Burn Taoist joss papers and as the fire meets the sacred papers, your prayers immediately are in the Heaven Realm with the deities.
  • Light sparklers and fireworks and delight in their colorful, bursting luminosity.
  • Give your bedding a sunlight bath. Place your pillows, bedding and mattress outside in the morning sunshine for at least three hours to absorb the yang chi of the sunlight. This removes any illness, emotional or stagnant energies.
  • Give yourself a sunlight shower. Bask in the light of the sun between 7am-9am or 11am -1pm for about 6 minutes or so. Imagine being showered with fresh, bright yang energy and feel the sun is washing away any inauspicious energies as well as boosting your vitality.
