House & Motto: “I see” therefore I am: your social areas, higher education, philosophy, religion, long distance travel and foreign concerns. I am the projection of the self to new horizons, collective knowledge, morals and social conduct.
I am the NINTH house of knowledge, and I have a never-ending curiosity and wanderlust about life. I can be very exaggerated in my optimism and about my philosophy, which is how I react to my environment.
Element: Fire is light and heat and is in a class by itself (not a gas, a liquid or a solid). It is Combustive-seen and felt. Even alone, fire is violent and acts with great physical force. It reacts with even greater force at interaction with it, and fights wildly so that it may not be put out. It creates action in hopes of getting a reaction due to its inner motivations. It is passionate and immoderate-showing or resulting from strong feeling. It is furious, extreme and intense-tending to distort the meaning of whatever interacts with it. It is excited, agitated, energetic, assertive, dynamic, enthusiastic, idealistic, self-projecting, and always looking for challenges-thus taking action for the benefit of itself.
Fire is the will and the spirit within the individual that motivates them to aggressive action. It is a physical element that is responsive through action and inspiration.
