Billie Burke'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).
Burke's "elemental make-up" is described below. Remember that most people are "unbalanced" or lopsided, and if Billie 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.
It is very difficult for Billie Burke to be objective and detached, or to view a situation from anyone else's point of view - her own feelings and personal experiences color Billie's judgment too much. Though she may sympathize or feel for others, Billie may in fact not really understand where they are coming from. Billie Burke needs to develop the ability to stand back, reflect on life and analyze a situation logically. It is also essential that Burke learn to communicate. Because Billie senses and feels so much, she may expect others to know what she is experiencing without filling them in. As mentioned earlier, words do not come easily to Billie Burke but she would benefit greatly by learning to articulate and express herself verbally - otherwise she can stew in her own feelings too much, or find herself at the mercy of her own poorly-understood emotional patterns.
Deep inside, Billie Burke has a vibrant, passionate, courageous, and life-affirming soul (discussed in detail in Chapter 3), which balances her introspective and hypersensitive side.
