Cole Porter'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).
Porter's "elemental make-up" is described below. Remember that most people are "unbalanced" or lopsided, and if Cole is lacking or deficient in a certain element (or elements), it simply means that he 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.
He is able to express ideas clearly and directly. Cole Porter is a great teacher because he can organize ideas logically, aptly highlight the important points and put minor details into perspective. Cole is also a great solace to those who are emotionally distressed or confused, and he is able to provide warm, loving support to others.
However, Cole Porter is also likely to be overly humble or unsure of himself and to look to others for inspiration, motivation, reinforcement and approval. Cole generally lacks a strong sense of self, confidence, courage and self-faith. With a tendency to be somewhat passive, Porter must learn how to take initiative and motivate himself.
He is inclined to periods of decreased enthusiasm. At these times, Cole Porter can feel bored and loose his sense of joy and enthusiasm for living. Eating warm, spicy foods, living in a warm, sunny place, and using fire in his daily life (lighting candles, using a wood stove or fireplace for heat) can help to balance him. Furthermore, initiating relationships with warm, cheerful and positive-minded people and developing a philosophy based on spiritual optimism can stir up Porter's own zest for life.
