You May Get

Fire

Joy, laughter, and warmth radiate from you, offering partnership and love. Fire people love to connect with others, laugh and be free. This can sometimes get them into trouble though. As a fire burns brighter, it burns faster. Fire people can burn themselves out by constantly socializing and having fun. Summer is the season of fire as it is easy going and joyful.You have a strong gift of propriety and people love to be around your warm, sunny nature. You may be a romantic, always looking for someone whose heart sings to yours.  In Chinese medicine, the heart is the supreme controller of our bodies. It also helps to govern the fire in the body. The heart is where our rawest selves lie, and it is the grand radiance of life that shines through us all. The fire is our passion and love in the world, and it is the place that connects us to the oneness of the universe. Be careful though, once you’ve been burned, it may be difficult for you to open your heart back up again. On the flipside, some fire people leave themselves too open, not sorting out the good from the bad and letting everyone (including the wrong people) in.  Ways an acupuncturist looks at the fire element in people:Fire in balance (Enthusiastic, optimistic, excited, bubbly, elation of being alive, magnetism, seductive)Fire in excess (manic, over the top, immature, overly excitable, grandiose, scattered)Fire as deficient (Bitter, joyless, shut down, unavailable, protected/walled off, heart not in residence/checked out, flat)

Earth

You are an earth element! Thoughtful, sweet, and always dependable, you have the gifts of the Earth. You are sympathetic and offer empathy. You know how to take care of and hold people and they love it. On the flipside, Earth people can sometimes feel resentful as they give and they give, but never seem to receive. You are an excellent gift giver, and you also enjoy good food and being nourished. However, the movement of earth energy is round, and you can stuck worrying about many things in a circular fashion. Late summer is your season, when the earth is humid and the fruits are falling from the trees. It is a time of provision and relaxation. Earth people love to be comfortable and relaxed!  Governed in our body by the Stomach and Spleen, it is the element where we digest not just food but life itself. It is our ability to nourish ourselves and the ones around us. Remember though, giving and receiving is a balance!Ways an acupuncturist looks at the Earth element in a person:Earth in Balance (rooted and secure in self, extends compassion and understanding, nurturing, thoughtful, reflective, empathetic)Earth in excess (Overprotective, Over nurturing - "sticky", meddlesome, over bearing, over worried, obsessed, fills up space in effort to take care of everything, leaves no room for others, has advice for everything, martyrdom)Earth as deficient (Stuck, inert, "Yes, but...", plea "ing" for understanding, rejects support, overly self-sufficient and contained, bottomless hole - nothing is enough, vampiristic - draining)
