The Imbalance of Elements in your Natal Chart, pt. 2

Hello again! Want to catch up on part one? Now, onto part two. An overabundance of Fire can go two ways: passion before reason, acting without thinking, and unearned confidence with no direction; or all of that passion, action, and confidence directed towards a clear goal. You can use this to bring out whatever you lack in your chart. Excessive Air cares more about words than they do about people, logic and reason reign supreme over emotions. With Air dominating your chart, it’s easy to remain detached from the corporeal in favor of the cerebral; but to balance what’s missing you must experience the tangible. Consider it research.

Excessive Earth is a consumerist dream. Sorry, but it’s true. Between the Taurus ruled Second House of possessions and money, the Virgo ruled Sixth House of daily work, and the Capricorn ruled Tenth House of your career, an overabundance of Earth means you work more to acquire more. When your worth is based on what you have – your car, your house, your Saint Laurent bag – you miss out on what you actually have: people in your life who love and support you. Don’t let yourself forget that.

A Water dominant natal chart is tricky and, I feel, the most extreme out of all of the elements. On the one hand, you can be imaginative and empathic. On the other hand, you can be easily influenced and prone to changeable moods. You’re also highly sensitive, which can be a good and bad thing. It makes you more attuned and compassionate to the world around you, but it’s also emotionally draining and can cause you to withdraw into yourself. So, the good is pretty good, but the bad is dreadful. With this, finding balance and stable ground for yourself is difficult; especially if you’re lacking Earth. I think the best route is to find what quiets your emotions; maybe meditation, or yoga, or cooking, or whatever it is that gives you calm. When it feels like someone is manipulating your emotions, remember this: opinions are like assholes, everybody’s got one and they’re usually full of shit. (Admittedly, that’s easy for me to say. Go back to the first paragraph to read all about a Fire dominant’s unearned confidence.)

As always, thanks for reading and let me know what you think in the comments. Bye!
