At the request of OP Fancy Mancy, I am obligated to post the effects of the elements on my emotions and personality.
Now, I do have to note, that I am a Fire Sign individual with a Stellium (Venus, Mercury, and Saturn) in Aries, and Mars in Taurus. So, I'm not exactly an emotional person other than you know, what I like to call passion.
But nevertheless invoking the elements can really
effect you as an individual, and this is meant to be an educational post, not a suggestion of what you should do.
First off, I'll start with an experience I have had recently:
I was on a run one morning, and stopped at a lake to take a rest and meditate outside, something I hardly ever get a chance to do. It also happened to be quite a windy, and beautiful spring day down in the tropics, so I took it as an opportunity to invoke the element Air. And boy was I in for a fucking ride dude. A week long, emotional roller coaster ride.
Now, this was all my doing, it was my ignorance, and has since been corrected by my GD because I couldn't handle it, and he's like a brother to me, and helped me out vastly. I invoked air 13 times, now it doesn't seem like a lot, but the suggestion is 7, the most I've gotten away with without too much discomfort was 8, and I got carried away and invoked air 13 times. Now, at first, I was fine, I felt light, airy, and intelligent, I thought I was a badass. WRONG
A few hours later whilst I was at work, I had an anxiety attack. All that was wrong, was that I was crashing from caffeine, and had a belly ache from the protein shake I drank, within the same 20 minutes as the energy drink, bad idea. But other than that I was fine, but i was so nervous, and anxious from the excess Air that I wasn't used to, that I had spun myself into an anxiety attack and ended up going home early. I even had to take the next day off of work because I couldn't get myself to calm down.
Now, of course, when you retain an element, your body adjusts to it over the course of a few days depending on how much you take in. So I was getting more and more used to it every day and was chilling out enough to be able to work. But still had minor anxiety attacks every morning, even this morning before I decided to get help from my GD and fix this shit because it was effecting my exercise (which is second most important to me next to being an SS, and my family), as well as my appetite.
Ways I was able to fix this was by invoking Earth of course, the 'opposite' to air, which helped to offset the excess air, but also created a backlash of the dominant Air element, so I was still feeling a little anxious, but I was more 'down to Earth' about it, and wasn't so flighty. Invoking Earth was one of the most comforting feelings I've had the past entire week. Like holy shit, it was like taking a chill pill made of dirt fellas, no kidding.
Another way I was able to help with ridding myself of the anxiety and feeling mentally shitty and exhausted over all was by invoking Fire. It gave me a feeling of happiness which helped to better support my down to Earth feeling as well. You see, without Earth to sustain Fire, fire just burns out. Fire needs tinder, but fire also consumes oxygen (air) so it will offset the effects of the air element. At least that is what I experienced, but the effects of the elements also depends on your own personality and who you are as a person, so it is best to know a lot about yourself before you go messing around with elemental magick. With that in mind, I have had anxiety attacks in the past, but for good reason, not because I had the shit sweats from protein and energy drink not sitting well in my gut, as well as some "probably-way-too-much-taurine-in-a-given-amount-of-time"
seeing as how the protein shake also had a lot of taurine as well, because it is an amino acid and is relatively good for you. But there is an excess to everything of course.
Invoking and condensing the elements into your chakras however is much different, and has far less effects on your emotions and personality. So, doing that is much safer than doing what I did. Like I said, it was my ignorance that let this happen, I wasn't taking the necessary precautions to invoking the elements. Fuck, I didn't even think to exhale the air after I invoked it because I thought I was cool. So, like I said, this is educational, take it or leave it. I am of course going to adjust to the air I invoked, probably well within the next week as long as I invoke fire and earth as well, being my more dominant elements on my natal chart, this will over power the air.
So, let's review the elements' effects on me.
Air- Nervous, irritable, paranoid, anxious.
Fire- Sexy, strong, happy, and oh, did I mention strong?
Earth- Disciplined, consistent, and 'down to Earth.'
Water- Compassionate, and loving. Buuut, I hardly ever invoke Water, so I don't know every single effect it has on me, but I do know that it is present in my more emotional side, which presents itself in my beliefs and my loyalty to the people (or Gods) that I love.
Moral of the story here today brothers/sisters, is to be careful when you invoke the elements, especially the more Emotional members here, because it can really fuck with your head if you over do it.
PS. I also did this on the same day that the Jews burned a bunch of children in Russia, 5 days before passover. Which helps explain some of the bull shit I felt, as enemy energy was abundant.https://www.ancient-forums.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=3680
