The 4 Elements of Numerology
Four elements or seasons exist
the Earth (Autumn),
(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
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
Partnership, it is sometimes
interesting to compare the principle numbers of each partner
Desire Number and
Path) on such a basis. This can help you to
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
Here is the correspondence
between the four elements and the nine digits.
UNDERSTANDING THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE 4 ELEMENTS:
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 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 !
