One reaches romantic maturity when they have accepted their “opposite” side and instead of looking for their opposite, they look for the truely “other”.
One may be an oceanic soul, another more earthy. Earth is very staid in your ways, resist pressure, firm in opinions. They like structure and being focused on topic. What’s the bad thing about earthy? Doesn’t hold up well under change, paranoid, prone to destructive shifts, and quakes under the right circumstances.
I’m fire Water is receptive, fire is expressive. Both are fluid, changeable. I’m impassioned, flare my temper and things get chaotic. Water and earth are the more relaxed elements. Fire and air the most driven. Know your elemental nature and like any totem you can use it to your advantage.
When earth meets earth, it is rock and roll. When fire gets fiery, earth gets fire proof. Earth is fireproof, it gets charred and then renewed.
Each element has a role, earth is structure, water is temperance, fire is catalyst and air is overview. Want a lot of ways of seeing something? Ask an air person.
Your thoughts are welcome. Be well friends.
