South-Fire, Summer-being expressive, emotional, and passionate, be motivated, see new things and build up an active social life. This is the perfect time to be noticed. Fires duel nature, from warm light into raging flames, can quickly change our pleasant summer mood. Neither good nor bad times should allow us to lose our own equilibrium; instead, we maintain our balance by adhering to our inner truths and moral codes like a fire clings to wood.
SouthWest-Earth, late summer/early fall- summer is changing to fall; a road of giving to others and thinking beyond our own needs. The energy here is nurturing and helpful; the time of deeper connections and strengthening relationships. However, this energy can turn into to feelings like jealousy, indecision, and insecurity if we lose balance. Earth Energy is the essence of the nurturing principle. Like the abundance of air, water, food, and resources that we have around us, earth is the energy of giving without thought of benefiting itself. The SW direction also leads to the path of forgiveness. Late summer energy helps consolidate and improve the situation we find ourselves in and can help focus us to be more practical and careful. The road of late summer is a time of action through conformity within the situation. If we concentrate on improving the quality of our own life, as well as those around us, we invite good fortune for all.
West-Lakes, Autumn- The Lake is an allegory for the mouth, constant in its soft way of making sound that moves us to relaxation and joyful feelings. This is a good direction for communicating our deepest thoughts. Speaking from our heart enables us to communicate with others without misunderstanding; talk produces harmony, speaking softly and sympathetically makes us heard and heeded. Autumn energy has another side and words unchecked can cut and destroy what could be favorable results. This not only can easily result in loss of motivation but also creates alienation from others. Autumn is the time of harvest; reaping the rewards of all our actions, and is a favorable direction to reflect on our conduct and accomplishments.
NorthWest-Heaven, Early Winter-The NW energy carries the power of wisdom. The aspect of Heaven energy helps us achieve high levels of self-discipline and self-control. This is a time to put greater value on our dignity and refine our self-respect. North West is also the direction of early winter, symbolizing the time of anticipation, when harvested crops are prepared so they last over the challenge of winter. Early winter energy is useful for planning and becoming better organized, enabling us to take a long-term view on life and working methodically towards long term goals.
