What better way to celebrate Earth Day this Sunday than by honoring the four elements -- Air, Fire, Water, Earth -- the very foundation of this beautiful planet of ours? Discover which element represents your astrological sign, and then let your love shine!
Air (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)
Communication is your thing, so talking, writing, teaching and learning about how to heal the planet will make your Earth Day special. The more you use your mind and your words to connect to the planet, the more you’ll be using your natural talents. But don’t forget to take a moment to physically connect with the natural world as well. This will help to keep you grounded and prevent you from being all talk and no action.
Earth Day Activity Ideas: Throw a fundraising party for your favorite environmental cause, attend a lecture or talk about the Earth, write a blog, article or tweet about going green.
Fire (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)
You fire types need adventure, fun and action in your lives on a regular basis and Earth Day is no exception. Fire needs to move or it can get stagnant, so you’ll enjoy activities that get you out and about, sharing your passion for the planet. It’s important that you have other people around to inspire you and keep you humble, so make sure you plan activities with others in mind.
Earth Day Activity Ideas: Honor the element of fire by spending time near fire itself. A hiking trail restoration project, a beach clean-up followed by a bonfire party, a volcano hike (inactive of course …), or other fire-inspired activities will help you connect with your inner environmentalist.
Water (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)
You have a deep emotional connection to the planet, which makes you particularly sensitive to environmental destruction. Taking time to honor your feelings on Earth Day is important. It’s good for you to balance your powerful emotions with movement so that you don’t get stuck and become stagnant. Earth Day is the perfect time for you to actually be in nature enjoying and celebrating the planet.
Earth Day Activity Ideas: Go to the beach and meditate or pray for the health of the ocean, take a swim (or dip your feet) in a nearby lake, pond or stream; clean up any trash you see around you.
Earth (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)
Your earthy nature will inspire you to do something practical to serve the planet on her day of celebration, and physical action is what makes the most sense to you. Just be sure to also remember to invoke your naturally sensual nature, enjoying the bounty of the Earth as you celebrate in her honor. Remember that it’s actually okay to have fun while you work.
Earth Day Activity Ideas: Spend time gardening, cook a meal using organic produce to honor the abundance of the natural world. Get a massage or mud bath to celebrate your body -- and the body of the planet.
