1 Water

1 Water is associated with winter, midnight, the void and downward, inward energy. This archetype is symbolised by deep water.

One water energy is reflective, characteristic of contemplation, meditation and sleep. People with this energy are deep thinkers and are innovative. Philosophical, intuitive, sensitive and like to find meaning.

Water can be fresh, vital and active (mountain streams) so they can appear to be lively and positive with a spirit of adventure. At other times deep, brooding, slow and calm (ponds, lakes, sea).

1 Water people have an independent nature which likes to explore. With the easy ability to find the way around obstacles in life, seeing connections and then considering objectively to move them forwards. Their ideas come from an inner knowing more than thinking.

With a dislike of being obstructed 1 Water people like to flow where they wish to go and are not easily contained. Water needs movement and flow otherwise it stagnates. However, water benefits from guidance and direction. Most water sources have some sort of container like a river bank or a tea cup. Without containment you can be chaotic and undisciplined- think of a river bursting its banks!

2 Earth

2 Earth is associated with late summer, afternoon and Mother, a nurturing and supportive energy. This archetype is symbolised by Mother Earth.

2 Earth energy is like lunchtime; a time for discussion, finding out what’s going on as well as some reflection for what needs to be done in the afternoon- a bit nosy and likes to be prepared. They are great at organising and are exceptionally kind and thoughtful.

2 Earth energy is the quality of unconditional giving, of the breast-feeding mother. Constantly giving of her resources and whoever receives this energy thrives.

2 Earth is a nurturing as well as a containing and supporting energy. We could not thrive without our Mother Earth constantly holding us and giving us all her natural resources, this energy in alignment offers deep nurturing to all.
