So what is the spiritual meaning of the element earth? Earth represents order, structure, foundation, stability, fertility, masculine and feminine energy, nourishment, shelter, grounded, manifestation, prosperity and projection. I find the earth element to be the most intriguing of the four elements because it presents itself to the universe as both masculine and feminine energy. Fire instantly presents itself as masculine energy while water presents itself as feminine energy. Air instantly presents itself as masculine energy, but the energy of the earth is more androgynous. Most people view the earth as feminine energy, but this is just one way of viewing earth. Earth has a masculine side. The earth is mainly consisted of rocks and rocks are mostly sturdy and rough and this is a physical representation of masculine energy.
Earth also features a moon and because of that, this sheds light on earth’s masculine side. Planet Venus is feminine energy and it has no moon. Planet Mercury doesn’t have a moon either but the reason why is because its orbits is too close to the sun, and the closet energy to planet Mercury that contains feminine energy is Venus and because of that, Mercury doesn’t require a moon. All the other planets have moons and because of this polarity of energies, this makes all the other planets a representation of masculine energy. Jupiter, Neptune, Pluto, Mars, Saturn and Uranus all have moons. The reason why all the planets and the universe operate under this system of balance is because of the Law of Gender and the Law of Polarity. I meant to write a blog post about the Law of Gender so I will write about it next week. Once you have a better understanding about how the universe operates, you will soon shed some light on the darkness. Check out my Law of Polarity post.
Earth’s feminine side displays nurturing, food, shelter, prosperity, mothering and protection. Planet Earth feeds and shelters all of its inhabitants and provides life for all to grow and flourish. This is a prime example of the earth’s selfless duty to take care of all of its inhabitants and this is a representation of the divine feminine energy and the feminine energy side of the earth is the only reason why most people around the globe view earth as mother earth and feminine energy.
