Elements: air, fire, earth, water
The balance of elements in the chart tell a lot about a person. Lots of water, very emotional; lots of air, very mental. Lots of Earth, stable. Lots of fire, well – yeah. Fire and water? Well, they don’t mix well. Fire and air – yikes. And on and on …. Often the energies are conflicting; this is where free will enters in.
Cardinal – active; starter; awakening – this is initiating energy – Brahma.
Fixed – internal; reflective; observing – this is sustaining energy – Vishnu.
Mutable – adaptable; fluctuating; shifting – this is adaptable energy – Shiva.
The planets continue to move through space, and because astrology is Earth-centered, this list indicates the approximate length of time it takes for each planet to move around the Earth.
