The Earth Element
In magic, one of the basic principles is that almost everything in the Universe is made up of a combination of the 4 elements: Air, Fire, Water, and Earth. With an understanding of the 4 elements and their characteristics you can understand anything in the Universe. That includes your basic personality and your relationships. You can learn more about the Earth element in our Magical Element Earth short course. To get you started, here are some of the basic characteristics associated with the Earth element:
strength, money, foundation, endurance, structure, mundane world, serenity of beingness, solidity, boundaries, permanence, land, commerce, products, confidence, loyalty, persistence, stubbornness, fortress, security, anchor, barter, substance, body, base, possessions
The Earth Personality
After reading the above characteristics of the Earth element, look at them in relation to your own personality, relationships and interactions. Do any of these sound like personality traits that you exhibit? If you are an Earth personality you are a practical and pragmatic person. You are a down to earth person with much strength, endurance, patience and persistence. Structure, boundaries, loyalty and permanence are things that you value. Earth personalities are often good at commerce and build strong foundations in their relationships and lives. Earth people are great manifesters and builders and do well in situations that they can add structure to. They want to know how things work and often fool around with improving everything. They are solid people that others drift to in uncertain times or see as an anchor or a "rock" and very often are very serene people. The challenge for Earth people is not getting stuck in a rut. Their desire for stability can often lead to stubbornness and inflexibility. They err on the side of caution, make decisions slowly and usually avoid taking risks. Another challenge for Earth people is their tendency to get bogged down with too many materials possessions, especially large ones.
The Road to Success With an Earth Element Personality
Earth personalities will do well in roles and situations that allow them to exercise their practicality and love of structure. Careers that emphasize stability, strength, loyalty and long-term dedication will be the most successful. Earth people should avoid situations with lots of quick change and too much risk taking. A good challenge for an Earth person however is in learning to take some risks periodically.
