The Elements - Fire - Metal - Earth - Wood - Water  
   

Characteristics

Fire offers comfort and warmth on the one hand but can also destroy and burn if left unattended or allowed to get out of control. It is an element that is powerful and needs to be respected. When using fire it is often wise to use only a small amount to stimulate the Feng Shui cycle you are looking at. Add too much and it can be too powerful. An example would be containing in a hearth or rinmg of stones. This is controlled. If the fire is allowed to get out of hand it can create a forest fire. Add too much fire of the fire element as a Feng Shui cure and it can have a destructive effect instead of a positive one.

Fire People

Fire people tend to be passionate & spirited about life. They make very good leaders and are self-driven. Fire people are also creative. If nothing is happening in their lives they are very good at creating a spark to get things on the move. A Fire person likes a new challenge and look for new things to take their interest. This sometimes means they have a tendency not to look carefully at something before leaping into it. Great successes can be created where things go their way. Conversely problems can be created when things don't go as they would hope. Fire people like to be the centre of attention. They make very good speakers but are not very good listeners.
