The Fire Element: Anger or Action?
Everyone has Mars somewhere in the horoscope and everyone can potentially feel very strongly about certain matters, not just personal offenses or injustices but perhaps broader social or political causes. If we dig deeply enough, we will discover where we are willing to take a stand and assume whatever risks there might be in taking that stand. The question is how do we manage the feelings we have about sleights, inequities and imbalances, or simply not getting our way when opinions differ? It can easily be seen that our society as a whole has failed to manage anger, violence, inappropriate sexual behavior, competition, and the risks associated with excessive greed, lust, and ego. This webinar is about learning to understand and appreciate skillful use of fire so that energies when unleashed support not just attainment of goals but improvement of circumstances for all concerned. In short, it is about reconnecting with sacred fire through purification of motives and actions.

Fire thrives on excitement, depends on loyalty, and accomplishes its goals through effort.

Using strategies that are harmless is another important lesson and often one that depends on the capacity to inspire and lead. Hidden in the turbulence of fire, there is the potential for nobility, transcendence, and perfection. The challenge to create a better world without harming a single soul
