ELEMENTAL GEMS

So a few people said on my previous post (about the Desert Glass) that Lapis and the Desert Glass had something in common. They’re element controllers. (For now, we’ll just call them Elemental Gems.)


So far we’ve really only seen two Elemental Gems, and both are in similar situations:

They were both imprisoned in an object of some sort, presumably for their usefulness as a tool. Lapis was trapped in a mirror and used for seeing the past. The Desert Glass was trapped in a pillow, however it’s function is unclear, but it is likely that it was used for mass construction possibly for bases during the war.

The both, as far as we know, lack any type of weapon. To compensate for their lack of weapons, they have immense control over elements they appear to be associated with. For example, the Desert Glass

when on the sand, it quickly erected towers and stairs with ease, moving massive portions of sand and rock. That was while it was STILL CONTAINED, meaning it could potentially move mountains with a flick of the wrist when free.

BUT when separated from its element, like in this picture

it had no power whatsoever.

And with Lapis Lazuli, she was able to control water even when bound,

and once freed, was able to raise this giant hand of water without even lifting a finger.

And when she actually did put effort into her actions…

SHE SUCKED THE ENTIRE FREAKING OCEAN INTO SPACE.

The basic premise of this post is to tell y’all that Elemental Gems are really scary and I hope that we’ll see more of them soon. The Hiatus is almost over.

That’s all for now.

Cancer, Scorpio & Pisces

Water people are very sensitive to their own feelings and to the feelings of others. They perceive life through their emotions. They are concerned with what feels right, with their hunches or impressions, rather than with what is practical or rational.  They use the emotions, not the intellect, to understand and to value. Water can raise people to the heights of bliss, but can bring them down to the depths of despair. 

Water people need close emotional relationships, and rarely have superficial affairs. They can be volatile. They are romantic, sentimental and affectionate. They can be very nurturing and very possessive with their family and spouse. They have fixed opinions. They communicate in non-verbal ways; emotionally, psychically, or through forms as art, dance, music, poetry and photography. Their beliefs are based on feelings rather than on reason, passion or practicality.

Ruled by Two Elements

When your chart is dominated by two elements equally it can create a very unique balance. Some with a dominant element different from the element of their Sun Sign may find this applicable as well.

Fire and Earth:
Keywords: tenacious, strong, creative, insensitive, prideful, controlling

Fire and Earth are in many ways opposites: Fire is bold, passionate, impulsive and childlike while Earth is reserved, practical, measured and cold. When they come together in one’s chart, they can be a bit of a wild card. This individual can be practical yet impractical, impulsive yet controlled, reliable yet volatile. These individuals are very strong, they go after what they want and they always get it with their powerful mix of Fire’s creativity and passion and Earth’s determination and sensibility. On the other hand, they can also be inconsiderate of the needs of others, cold if not cruel, and highly controlling.

Fire and Air:
Keywords: visionary, optimistic, communicative, social, warm, open

Fire and Air are compatible elements so they join smoothly. Air brings logic, objectivity and tolerance while Fire brings emotion, passion and idealism. When they come together in one’s chart, the native is very social and warm. They are the type who can make friends with anyone, they are so open. They also tend to be restless and unable to focus on one thing at a time. The bold energy from Fire and Air mix to make an individual who can easily be swept up in unrealistic ideas.

Fire and Water:
Keywords: intuitive, emotive, sensitive, warm, creative, disorderly, volatile

Fire and Water come together to form a very unique individual, highly in touch with their emotions and needs. Fire brings instinct and Water intuition allowing an individual ruled by both to understand themselves and subsequently others more so than most. These individuals are either very sensitive and can be easily swayed by those around them yet also bold, blunt, and inconsiderate. They tend to be completely swept away by their own emotions, acting erratically and even hysterically at times. It’s all too easy for them to focus solely on themselves and their emotions, often they are inconsiderate due to this.

Earth and Air:
Keywords: logical, efficient, objective, practical, cold, detached

Earth and Air work together harmoniously in one’s chart. When ruled by these two elements, an individual can find the perfect balance between realism and idealism. They are visionary and creative and possess the tenacity and common sense to follow through and make their ideas a reality. They possess a powerful imagination but are grounded enough to never be swept away. On the other hand, they can be dangerously cynical, cold and inconsiderate of others.

Earth and Water:
Keywords: empathetic, grounded, intuitive, practical, logical, detached

Earth and Water work together easily as compatible elements. In ways they are very different, Earth solid and practical and Water free and emotive. When these two elements rule an individual’s chart, they are both logical and emotional, realistic and idealistic, distant and sympathetic. They find balance between their deep emotions and their strong sense of reality, never letting one get in the way of the other. They have a special talent for rolling with life’s punches and even making obstacles work in their favor. They can easily become distant and detached and are prone to pride.

Air and Water:
Keywords: intuitive, idealistic, communicative, humanitarian, impractical

Air and Water have many conflicting characteristics but they come together in positive ways. Individuals ruled by these two elements are highly compassionate and interested in the needs of others but they can also be extremely distant and even cold. Air’s objectivity and Water’s sensitivity fluctuate, at times very dramatically. They are very logical and analytical but always sympathetic. Their reasoning always has a very human edge. They can be highly impractical, unrealistic and cold.

Elemental Balance: Fire ☆  Earth  ☆  Air  ☆  Water 

Aries, Leo & Sagi

Fiery people have high spirits, great self-confidence, enthusiasm, and direct honesty and openness. They project a radiant, vitalising energy that glows warmly. They need a good deal of freedom to express themselves so they can insist on their own point of view. They are consumed - even entranced - by whatever they do. They are motivated by excitement, insight and intuition. That is, they get an idea which captivates them. They do not consider rational or logical thinking or practical feasibility, because the idea comes to them fully formed and full of power. While the idea may grow over a period of time, it does not grow logically but grows intuitively. For this reason, sometimes fiery people do not know why they must do what they must do!

Not surprisingly, fire people are assertiveindividualisticactiveself-expressiveand freedom loving. Fire sign energies can stimulate others, but they can also overpower and exhaust them. Good natured and fun-loving, they may have many friends. They are generous with their time, energy, and resources. They value having a good time above material possessions. They are generous but can be egoistic. Fiery people may believe so strongly in their own powers and abilities that they fail to notice the powers and abilities of others. This may mean that they do not give others the credit they deserve, or it may be that they underestimate their opponents. They believe that “If you want a job done well, then do it yourself”. However, they belong to a group that is the most daring and capable inspiring natural leaders. They lead from the front. In war or business, they are out in the front leading the way. They are independent and individualistic leaders, rarely consulting others before they act. In fact, they may not even think things through to themselves, because their mode of thought is intuitive – the decision comes fully formed, so they may not know why it arose. They are always “on stage” and need to be recognised and admired for their attainment and accomplishments. They consider being appreciated more important than being rich. Nothing hurts them more than being ignored. The fire sign sense of honesty is straightforward and often child-like. They believe everyone is like themselves an open book. This may lead them to be gullible and naïve, or to others exploiting their openness.

Elementals of the Zodiac

Fire: The Salamander - Not to be mistaken with the amphibian, Fire Salamanders are small, dragon-like beings that usually appear a foot long but can alter their size as they see fit, sometimes appearing as great beasts or the smallest spark of light. Their skin is slick and ephemeral like a flame, dark yet glimmering like a brilliant ember. Without Salamanders, there would be no fire in this world, they are the beings which make flame come to life, lying in wait for matches to come out.

Earth: The Gnome - Gnomes are rarely seen by humans as they move through the earth with as much ease as we move through the air and stay there. They seek out humans very rarely but when they do it is often in order to help them. They guard mines full of gold and jewels or forests in which animals take refuge. These elementals take on many forms from elves to satyrs but in their natural state their skin shines dully like gold and crystals sprout from their shoulders.

Air: The Sylph - These beings are Air itself. They are drawn to humans who are artists or philosophers as Sylphs seek to whisper inspiration in their ears. Sylphs rarely take on physical form, if anything they may appear as a whisp of smoke, but when they do appear as humans their form varies wildly. Sylphs may appear as gorgeous adults or precious cherubs, as angels with broad white wings or fairies with gossamer, gauzy wings of cloud; their eyes glow a bright white and their being is translucent.

Water: The Undine - Beautiful, humanoid beings that reside in lakes, rivers and waterfalls. Their songs are often heard by humans but simply written off as the call of birds or babble of water. At first glance, Undines are easily mistaken for humans but when you look closer you can see the nictitating membrane that flickers across their eyes like a crocodile’s and the unearthly sheen to their skin. Their laugh may be as sweet as a bird’s song but their smile reveals vicious fangs.
