The 4 Elements of Numerology

Four elements or seasons exist which are:

the Earth (Autumn), Water (Winter), Air (Spring) and Fire (Summer).

Each one of these elements has a fundamental role to play to make a « complete cycle ». In the same way that these 4 elements form the essential pillars of natural life, we can consider that to be a « complete » person, we must be positive in these 4 key sectors seen in the personality. We can associate schematically specific qualities for each element.

The EARTH is the indispensable base. It is the nutritious support, the symbol of fertility. It will be characterized by the taste for work, solidity, the sense of traditions, health, concrete sense, respect of ecology, cleanliness, generosity and seriousness. The negative aspects of an « Earth » personality could be inertia, heaviness, harshness, a pessimistic or blinkered vision. In Numerology the Earth corresponds in principle to the number 4, 6 and 8 vibrations.

The WATER irrigates the Earth. In reasonable quantity it can generate abundance. In excess it floods the Earth and will erode the soil. It will be characterized by the sense of organization, relationships, co-operation, order, logic and intelligence but without creativity (organization rather than intuition). A negative personality of this type means coldness, hypocritical relationships or relationships for self-interest, contempt, an excessive taste for hierarchy and rules. The combination of Earth and Water qualities brings economic well-being because the two parties complement each other. But often the Water leaders are passionately fond of dominating or of strangling the Earth people (who form the majority) with taxes. In the end, this leads to limitations or a recession. In Numerology, Water generally corresponds to the vibrations 2, 7, 22 and sometimes 1 and 8 (if those people are devoted to managing).

The AIR has the capacity to evaporate Water in favor of it's own distribution over the Earth. It is an indispensable element. Air will be characterized by morality, a sharp sense of justice, the search for spiritual or scientific truth, originality, new ideas and a creative intelligence. The Air carries it's spirit and vitality to the Earth-Water system. The corruption is a negative combination of Water and Air. In Numerology Air corresponds in general to the number 5, 6 and 11 vibrations and sometimes the number 1 (if the 1 has an individual and innovating mind). The 6 being taken with it's more psychological or spiritual aspects (desire for harmony)rather than physical.

The FIRE is the sun which comes to heat the Earth and permit the belief in good conditions. It will be characterized by panache, charm, magnetism, harmony, beauty, confidence, warmth, enthusiasm, passion, the emotions and kindness. The Fire comes to add the final touch of human warmth and beauty to the Earth-Water-Air system. Relationships where everyone's a winner are a positive combination of Air and Fire. Suspicion is the result of negative Air and Fire. In Numerology, Fire corresponds in principle to the numbers 1, 3, 9 and sometimes 2 vibrations (the sensitivity and human warmth of the 2).

For Partnership, it is sometimes interesting to compare the principle numbers of each partner (Expression Number, Intimate Number, Desire Number and Life Path) on such a basis. This can help you to understand certain aspects of your relationship better and also improve one or an other of the 4 elements, knowing that a good relationship necessitates a healthy base to each one of these elements. It is also necessary to know that we often favor a bit more one of the 4 elements and that the attraction of one element to another follows the natural cycle of the seasons. In this way Fire is seduced by the stature of the Earth which is attracted by the sense of organization of the Water which in it's turn admires the creativity of the Air which is attracted by the charm of the Fire.

Here is the correspondence between the four elements and the nine digits.


















Earth-Earth : Good relationship in the physical and material areas, but more delicate on the emotional plan. Quite a poor relationship as far as new ideas and spirituality are concerned.

Earth-Fire : Delicate agreement which takes a long time to master. It is necessary to avoid the Earth (dominant) becoming lifeless or depreciating the Fire's contribution. A risk of frustration if the two philosophies are not in harmony.

Earth-Water : Harmonious and sensual relationship. A good love or friendship relationship. But in the end it's the Water who dominates.

Earth-Air : In so far as elements are opposed, there is an incompatibility here under the form of an incomprehension (different wavelength) or even conflicts or continual clashes. Delicate.

Water-Air : If there is agreement for a shared project, the energy of these two will be powerful and will profit from a complete cycle. But more frequently, sentimental compatibility is reduced. An intellectual friendship is more suitable. In the case of conflict, the Air will end up draining the water away.

Water-Fire : We find two opposing element here that often have an explosive relationship. Not very interesting due to the constraints. A common work is possible if you manage to keep a good atmosphere by reciprocal efforts.

Water-Water : Two accomplices in their activities but a bit dull and boring as far as a love life goes. Both are often too calculating and not altruistic enough to hope to reach a real love.

Air-Fire : Excellent compatibility. In principle it is a harmonious relationship in all areas. Passion is present as well as communication. Be careful of unreasonable passion or a loss of individuality.

Air-Air : This is a very strong, very intuitive relationship suitable for developed and sensitive people. The intellectual area is favored. However, some material or down to earth gaps. If there is good sense the relationship will be excellent.

Fire-Fire : Passionate and powerful relationship. It is beautiful to see but sometimes the " fuel " is lacking and in such a case there is a risk of friction.

To want to base everything on one of these pillars is a mistake, we understand the necessity for success with a good agreement in working on these 4 centers !
