Since it would be impossible for us to survive without the presence of our wonderful green Earth, it's crucial that we show our respect for this planet we call home. So how do you find your own particular eco-style?
The tarot -- based on the wisdom of the four elements: earth, air, fire and water -- can offer insight to help you find your path. Read the descriptions of each suite/element below, decide which one most fits you, try some of the suggested tips and discover how you can honor Mother Earth in your own unique way.
Suite of Swords/Air
You value communication and the mind. You have the ability to distance yourself from emotional situations and see things logically. You are articulate and good at convincing others of your point of view. You can honor the Earth best by using your intelligence to find solutions to environmental dilemmas.
Earth action: Write letters-to-the-editor about environmental issues, join an environmental group, engage others in conversation about the planet.
Suite of Wands/Fire
Passionate and charismatic, you love to take action about matters that concern you. You inspire others with your enthusiasm and you are a good leader. Your creativity and artistic nature give you the ability to entertain others while educating them. Honor the Earth by finding new ways to teach others about the importance of the natural world.
Earth action: Create a play, painting or other creative piece that is eco-friendly or that features an Earth-based theme. Throw a fundraising party for your favorite Earth issue.
Suite of Cups/Water
Intuitive and emotional, you are deeply attuned to the more subtle realms of life. You have a naturally compassionate nature and treat others with kindness and care. Your ability to gently nurture all forms of life is a great gift. You can honor the Earth by tending to her spirit and body, and by taking care of the people, plants and animals who need support.
Earth action: Organize a meditation or prayer circle for the Earth. Volunteer at an animal rescue organization (since you resonate with water, try a whale or seal rescue group).
Suite of Pentacles/Earth
You are down to earth, practical and hardworking. You know what needs to happen to get a job done and are usually the first to step in and get started. Others respect your competence and authority, and are more than willing to follow your lead. Honor the Earth in a hands-on way, creating actual physical changes that make a difference.
Earth action: Start or volunteer in a community garden. Work on a local habitat restoration project. Learn about your local plants, animals and environment so you can share this knowledge with others.
