If you've ever sat around a campfire or glanced at a candle and found yourself relaxing and losing yourself in the flickering, ever-changing flames - you've already tried fire gazing without even realising! Fire is an intense and yet soothing element, it can destroy and create. It is said that gazing at the shapes created by a flame can give us hints about the future. And even if that doesn't work, it can be a particularly strong form of meditation.
Fire burns towards the heavens and was said to originate there. It is a symbol of cleansing - witches were once burned at the stake if they were discovered. Fire is associated with the following astrological signs:
Aries, Leo and Sagittarius
These signs are considered to be "fiery" in personality which can mean any number of things!
- Fire opal
