Through the ages, we are born, we are grown… we are weathered by the sun, we are species dying under the changing moon. From space and air, from land and earth, we are purified through fire.

In alchemy, fire represents emotions such as passion, love, anger, and hate, which are sometimes referred to as “fiery” emotions. Aristotle labeled it as hot and dry, and it is represented by the colors red and orange, as well as the humor yellow bile.

Additionally, fire is also seen as a more masculine symbol.
