Air elements embody the
uplifting, expansive energy of Summer. In Summer the energy moves
upward, stimulating our mind and opening us to the infinite possibilities
of the universe above. Air elements enjoy exploring unique ways
of looking at things and can get bored easily if not mentally challenged.
Air/Water people abide in the mental world but are drawn toward emotional connection. Because of this they often struggle with the conflicting desires of freedom and intimacy. They are challenged to balance their tendency towards discernment and living in fantasy with a willingness to be emotionally present with the actual experience. If they spend too little time connecting with others they can become overly analytical, emotionally distant and cold. When their heart is open their presence is playfully-loving and they are gifted with a unique ability to see the big picture while being sensitive to otherís emotions.
Air/Earth people abide in the mental world and are pulled toward physical interaction. They are challenged to balance their tendency towards discernment, judgement and taking life too seriously with that of acceptance and play. They are usually quite capable and often have high expectations for themselves and others, which can lead to a feeling of pressure in their lives. Sometimes their standards are so high that they donít even try due to fear of failure. Their mind tends to resist surrendering to intimacy and sensual pleasure, but when they do drop down into this level of experience they discover a part of themselves that is enjoyably rich and life supporting.
