What is your element: Are you Water, Air, Fire or Earth?
Did you know that your birth chart offers insight on your elements? At the time of your birth, all 12 planets were in a specific sign, with each sign correlating to one of four elements — fire, air, water, and earth. Your unique elemental makeup gives clues to your strengths and weaknesses, how you behave, how you communicate, how you manage stress, and even how you express love.
The Mystic Gems was designed to help you harness the elemental energy of your chart by amplifying your strengths and cultivating the elements you’re lacking. Because life works best when everything is in balance.
