Fire Element

Archetype: The Wizard and Socializer / Marketing


Fire is yang/masculine in character, its direction is upward and its energy is expansive. In Chinese thought Fire is associated with the qualities of dynamism, strength and persistence; however, it is also connected to restlessness.

The fire element provides, warmth, enthusiasm and creativity, however an excess of it can bring aggression, impatience and impulsive behavior. In the same way, fire provides heat and warmth, however an excess can also burn.


Fire is the Element responsible for the passionate resonance when you are following your life’s calling. It is the joy and laughter associated with playfulness. Fire type people are charming, fun, mischievous, easily excitable, and change emotional states rapidly. They love change, bright colors and environments that stimulate.The negative emotion is hate, while its positive emotion is joy.

Summer the Season of Abundance; The Element of Fire

The Fire Element

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the Fire element is the spark from which all of life derives. The emotion associated with Fire is joy, which, when in balance, represents an overflowing enthusiasm for life. An excess of Fire, however, can create hyperexcitability and restlessness, while a deficiency of Fire can produce a lack of joy and a feeling of apathy. The color associated with Fire is red; the climate of Fire is hot; and the sound connected with Fire is the sound of laughter.


Symptoms associated with imbalances in the Fire element include the following:


  • Excessive perspiration, or lack of perspiration
  • Rashes, hives, or hot skin eruptions
  • Sleep disturbances, insomnia, and restless sleep
  • Palpitations, or an irregular heartbeat
  • Restless, agitated, or explosive energy
  • Inappropriate laughter
  • Anxiety and irrational fears and phobias

How to Keep Healthy and Joyful During the Summer

As summer is a time for play and relaxation, make sure to create time each day to “de-stress.” Take a few minutes and do what I call “calming the breath.”

  • Exhale completely, then close your mouth and inhale through your nose to a count of five. As you breathe in, imagine that pure, clean air is entering your lungs.
  • Hold your breath for the count of twenty, imagining that your cells are using this opportunity to empty their waste products into the bloodstream.
  • Exhale to ten counts, visualizing the waste products exiting from your body.

Engage your senses. As summer brings with it a myriad of intense colors, sounds, and fragrances, make yourself available to the abundance all around you.

  • Go outside in the grass barefooted and feel the textures that greet your feet.
  • Go into the garden and listen intently to the sounds of the birds and crickets, or of children playing.
  • Smell the flowers, the smells of summer, and take time to allow them in.
  • Taste the fresh fruits and vegetables, and linger over their unique flavors.

Trust your intuition. The heart rules understanding and intelligence, but not of the cerebral type. When we know something in our heart, we are connected to a deeper part of our being. Try to engage in this deeper knowing, and take the time to listen to your inner voice.


Eat cooling foods, and eat slowly. Enjoy the flavors of the vegetables and fruits in their season. The taste associated with Fire is bitter, so try to include bitter greens like endive, escarole, spinach, kale, and Swiss chard in your diet.


Drink lots of pure, fresh water. The sun pulls the moisture from your pores, so it is important that you rehydrate. Drink eight to ten 8-oz glasses of water a day. If you don’t feel thirsty, force yourself to drink it anyway; most likely, even if you force yourself, your body will give a sigh of relief, thanking you.


Exercise. A healthy heart needs regular exercise to keep the circulatory system in good condition. Get a good cardiovascular exercise and try to build a sweat, which helps to cleanse toxins from the body. Depending on your level of fitness, make your workout fit in. If you are out of shape, begin slowly by walking daily. Try to walk fast enough to just break a bit of a sweat, but don’t overdo it. The heart is more vulnerable in the summer, so build your exercise routine gradually.
