  • The Elements

    Earth: The element of earth corresponds with the zodiac signs of Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn.  The earth element is aligned with our physical body, instincts, and basic needs.  The direction of earth is North and it is representative of feminine energy for its fertile and stable nature.  The tarot suit represented by earth would be Pentacles for their stability, material conceptualization, and concreteness when interpreting their meaning(s).  The Chakra associated with earth would be the Root Chakra due to its grounding nature and centering.   Air: The element of air corresponds with the zodiac signs of Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius.  The air is aligned with our thought processes, communication, and wisdom.  The direction of air is East…

  • Feminine Energy

    Feminine energy identifies with the abstract, intuitions, ethereal, our emotions and perhaps the concept of the heart.  In its purest form, feminine energy encompasses indulging in feelings, embellishing emotions, and experiencing everything to the fullest extent.  Feminine energies are vast and focused on the philosophical aspects of a very beautiful, altruistic universe.  The essence of feminine energy is caring, loving, indulgent, imaginative, and to some extent flighty and lost in the fantastical possibilities of existence. Feminine energy does not have to be assigned to only human form.  When I considered feminine energy, it is all things beautiful and limitless.  For example, the ocean(s), the forest(s), the mountain(s), and the night…

  • Masculine Energy

    Masculine energy identifies with the head, mind, logic, the physical brain.  In its purest form, masculine energy encompasses data driven, outcome producing, statistical reliant thought processes.  Masculine energies are very task based and focused on the concrete aspect of a very definitive time line.  The essence of masculine energy is formatted, planned, regimented, disciplined, and to some extent hardened and steadfast. Masculine energy does not have to be assigned to only human form.  For example, if you view it from a societal level, it would align itself with the current operational conditions of the United States and many other nations.  As a whole, our industries, from the most successful tech…

  • Chakra’s

    The chakras are points or centers in the body that are energy activators.  For some, there may be a spiritual aspect to the chakras as well.  Personally, I consider them centers of energy for their corresponding region of our body, the process of aligning the chakras and then living in balance, that is the spiritual part (for me). There are seven in total and they begin at the base of the spine and follow the colors of the rainbow in reverse all the way to the top of the head, as follows: Root (Red), Navel/Sacral (Orange), Solar Plexus (Yellow), Heart (Green), Throat (Blue), Third Eye (Indigo), Crown (Violet) For the…
