Earth nourishes, protects, encircles. It is the foundation, the structure in which we move and breath. That matrix of form can be rigid, confining, or claustrophobic. But it also provides the ground from which all things grow and flourish.
Earth rules—but it also serves. Everything is in its rightful place: Balance, harmony, even conformity. The rule of law and the rule of the totality. Not power over others, but empowering and enabling.
Earth Element is the basis of the world of form and structure that we inhabit. It is the source of “enrichment,” growth, stability and an organized and secure life. As the foundation of living, working and thriving, if it is not fully integrated, there can be failure, poverty, loss of status or of social value. Yet Earth excess means that freedom and possibilites are too highly controlled and limited.
The form of our body is a very sophisticated hierarchy of structures within structures, organized and coordinated with extraordinary precision. The matrix of connective tissue provides the framework of every living cell. But when Earth becomes deficient, this marvelous city of the body begins to decay and collapse. Conversely, when Earth is excessive, there is rigidity, restriction and contraction.
Earth Element is the inner Ruler, the force within our psyche that organizes, logically governs, and structures our psychological world. It provides a stable and practical base, and a sense of nourishing and enrichment. We are where we truly belong, with generosity towards others. But if disconnected, we feel impoverished and unstable. And the dark side of Ruler is miserliness, oppression, and self-centeredness.
