Summer energetics are fire and heat. The organs that make up the fire element are the heart and small intestine. In Chinese medicine the heart regulates blood circulation and also controls consciousness, spirit, sleep and memory. The heart houses the mind. When the mind is settled it is anchored. When the mind is anchored there is peace. If the mind is not anchored there is restlessness. The spirit is said to wander. This presents as symptoms such as insomnia, anxiety and mania.
When the fire element is in balance, sleep is deep and restorative and an individual is happy, joyful and calm. If the fire element is out of balance, a person may be easily startled, timid or depressed. Physical symptoms of an imbalance are agitation, irritations, heartburn, palpitations, agitation or restlessness.
The fire element has a very Yang quality. To unify the summer you must express expansion and growth. Yang energy rises so there is lightness, outward activity, brightness & creativity.
The emotion of the fire element is joy – truly what Summer energetics are all about. Work, play and be joyful! Explore what joy means to you this Summer, here are some ideas.
While we all believe Summer starts in December in Australia, Summer truly begins at the Summer solstice. This year the solstice is on Monday 21st December, this is the day with the most daylight hours of the year.
