Fire represents South, which is the spark of life and the energy that gets things done. Fire is associated with the will. (The will is defined as: “The mental faculty by which one deliberately chooses or decides upon a course of action.”)
To represent fire, place in the South corner one of these things: a lit candle, dragon figurine, or a hot chilly pepper.
South associates with noontime, the peak of the day’s hustle and bustle. Many people and animals are most active and awake at this time.
Summer represents South. It’s the growing season and hottest time of the year, when things flourish.
South represents the adult phase of the life cycle. We can take care of ourselves and take on more responsibilities. Our lives are at the peak of health and strength.
