Each zodiac sign will fall into one of the four elements: fire, water, earth, or air. Each element has a wealth of benefits that go beyond your physical needs. Connecting to the elements can be simple and impactful.
We all can cultivate a connection to the elements that make up our physical reality. And doing so will make us more in-tune with life. You might find that when you are out of balance, it’s because you are needing more of a certain type of elemental connection. For example, if you find yourself at the point of burn-out, tapping into water energy can be helpful. And if you are feeling sluggish, connecting with fire will inspire you to new goals and excitement. Communing with your Sun sign’s element will help you to connect more with yourself and your purpose in this lifetime.
The benefits of connecting to the elements not only help us to be more balanced internally, but they also can help us in relationships too. If there is another person who you are trying to connect with, you can commune with their Moon or Venus element in order to help you understand them better and become closer.
Here’s how you can connect to each of the elements.
Have you been spinning in your mind? Maybe you are feeling a lack of money or resources? It might be time to connect with the earth. Earth energies provide a stable, consistent, and balanced energy that can help us to achieve anything one step at a time. The Earth signs are Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn. Taurus energy will connect us with the pleasure and luxury of this world. Virgo placements allow us to be organized and methodical in our manifestations, and Capricorn unites our spiritual purpose with our physicality bringing more meaning and discipline into our lives. There are many easy ways to do this:
- Keep a meaningful crystal nearby.
- Walk barefoot on dirt or sand.
- Weed the garden.
- Spend time in nature.
- Count coins or paper money.
- Eat foods that are also roots like potatoes, beets, or carrots.
- Wear the colors of the earth.
- Wear a lip balm designated for Earth Signs
Are you finding life to be stale or are you bored in your relationships? Connecting to the element of air can be helpful to expand our ideas, find new solutions, and freshen our spaces. Air energy purifies us from the inside out. It opens us up to possibilities we otherwise wouldn’t notice. Zodiac signs associated with air are Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius. Gemini placements allow us to hold conflicting ideas in mind without difficulty. Libras connect us with pleasure and aesthetics. And Aquarius placements are able to connect us with all of humanity to expand our conscious awareness. Here is a list of ways to connect to air:
- Breathe intentionally.
- Read compelling books or articles.
- Write a simple story or some poetry.
- Play music
- Visit a higher altitude.
- Speak your truth at a rally or event.
- Burn sacred wood.
Are you confused about your direction or feeling disconnected from your desires? Maybe you have a hard time knowing exactly what you want. The element of water allows us to become in tune with our emotions so that we can have rich and meaningful experiences in our lives. Water is about bringing light to the depth of the human experience. Connecting with water means you also are connecting to the signs of Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces. A Cancer placement is going to increase your emotional sensitivity which will also increase your manifestation abilities. Scorpios will be able to tap into the depth of the human experience and provide love and acceptance unlike anything else. And Pisces placements allow us to tap into our own intuition and creative expression. Here’s how to connect with the water element:
- Have a good cry. (we all need that sometimes.)
- Visit natural water formations.
- Take a bath or shower.
- Mindfully wash a dirty stone from outside.
- Gaze at a bowl of water while meditating.
- Drink filtered water.
- Paint a picture.
- Spend time noticing the moon.
- Read comforting literature or watch comforting films.
Do you need more action in your life? Maybe you have big plans and you need a lot of energy to accomplish them. Fire is all about your passion for life. It’s what wakes us up in the morning and gets us ready for the day. Fire can occasionally allow us to tap into our anger, but when we use our anger as information on how to love ourselves the most instead of lashing out at others, anger can be very helpful. When you connect with fire you are also connecting to Aries, Leo, and Saggittarius. These fire signs know how to get motivated. The sign of Aries inspires us to massive action to win even the toughest conquests. Leos dig deep into their hearts to blend their fire with deep compassion and loyalty. And Saggittarius placements give us spiritual wisdom mixed with playful movement and even travel. Here’s how to connect with fire energy:
- Eat spicy foods.
- Fire gaze while meditating.
- Go to a wreck room and smash out all your anger.
- Play music with intense beats.
- Wear red or orange.
- Spend time in a sauna.
- Start a simple and quick project.
- Make a list of desires and burn it in a fire to release it as a prayer to the Universe.
Hopefully with these ideas, you can see that connecting with the elements that make up this planet can not only be very simple but also very meaningful. And you might even find that your creativity has been piqued enough to come up with your own rituals to connect to the elements.
