Avatar The Last Air Bender + The Elements
🤔… This just came to me out of nowhere, but do you’ll know “Avatar The Last Bender”? Okay please hear me out and bear with me. So the Air Nomads were wiped out and Aang was the last air bender. If you think about it astrologically, the world without air nomads lacked air. Lacking air can mean being detached and feeling disconnected. The Water Tribe, Earth Kingdom and Fire Nation were all disconnected from each other due to the Air Nomads being wiped out and the Fire Nation being the dominant power in the world. Well if you think about again astrologically, the world had an excess of fire which can mean being “too” driven/powerful (in a sense) which definitely applies to the Fire Nation being the dominant power. Aang being the last air nomad single handedly joined the nations together through establishing relationships with people from each element - excluding his own of course (Katara & Sokka = Water, Toph = Earth and Zuko = Fire). With the Fire Nation being the dominant threat/power in the world (specifically Firelord Ozai), Aang had to fight against Ozai and when given the opportunity to take his life away, he chose not to. He instead took his bending away. Since Aang took the most power person in the Fire Nation’s (Ozai’s) bending away, Ozai no longer held control of the fire nation anymore. Since Ozai can longer bend fire, there is no longer an excess of fire in the world. I feel like what is important here is the fact that Aang decided not to kill Ozai when he had every right to. Applying this astrologically again, Aang realized that air needs fire and fire needs air. Without air, there would be no connectivity, stimulation and mental focus. Without fire, there would be no motivation, energy and driven focus. And Without either of them, Earth and Water cannot thrive in balance. All of the elements represent crucial aspects of life and must live in harmony and balance in order for the world not to dive into chaos. Aang being the last air nomad saved the world by connecting (air) all the elements together in order to bring about balance. Basically, Avatar The Last Air Bender taught us the astrological importance of each element as it displayed to us what can happen when there is a lack and an excess of a certain element.
