Angela Merkel's fundamental needs, values, and orientation towards life are symbolized by the four astrological elements. Each person has their own unique balance of these four basic energies: fire (warmth, inspiration, enthusiasm), earth (practicality, realism, material interests), air (social and intellectual qualities), and water (emotional needs and feelings).
Merkel's "elemental make-up" is described below. Remember that most people are "unbalanced" or lopsided, and if Angela is lacking or deficient in a certain element (or elements), it simply means that she needs to consciously develop that particular aspect in order to appreciate and/or work harder in that dimension of life.
Sometimes we overestimate the element that we are least endowed with, sensing it as a lack within ourselves, but more often we neglect or ignore it. The qualities described below will be reiterated and explained in more detail in the following pages.
Merkel's gift lies in her ability to perceive, understand and communicate about feelings and matters of the heart and soul. She is thus well suited to any field that involves working with people as a counselor or teacher, and even if Angela is not trained to do so, others seek her out as an advisor, for Angela Merkel is able to clarify and sensitively discuss their personal concerns and problems. Relationships are of primary importance to Angela Merkel, and her ability to handle them is one of her richest and most fulfilling experiences. Angela, even more than most people, requires relationships with friends and intimates with whom she shares her thoughts and life experiences.
Angela Merkel also has an active and creative mind and is apt to spend much time reading, thinking or daydreaming, and/or writing (stories, music, lyrics, diaries, letters, etc.). Film or any media combining words with images and emotions also fascinates her.
At times her mind and intellect may seem to be at odds with her instinctive, emotional side, and it is Angela's task to bring them together. Angela Merkel may spend a lot of time mulling over her experiences and feelings, trying to understand and make sense of them.
She is quite sensitive (psychologically and physically) and may avoid taking a direct, active part in life.
