Maya Angelou'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).
Angelou's "elemental make-up" is described below. Remember that most people are "unbalanced" or lopsided, and if Maya 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.
Maya Angelou has an abundance of energy but she prefers to play, discover and create, rather than work. Unless she is fortunate enough to be able to do this, Maya may have trouble coping with the demands of the workaday world. The constraints and limitations imposed by material, routine responsibilities weigh heavily upon Angelou and she is apt to resist (or feel incapable of) taking them on. However, it is important for Maya Angelou to impose some structure, discipline, and consistency on her life in order to realize the dreams she cherishes. Otherwise, though she has ideas, talent, inspiration, vision and hopes for the future, Maya Angelou may have nothing tangible to show for it. One of her challenges is to come down to earth, make do with what there is (even though it is not likely to be as grand as Angelou would like), and acquire some patience and humility in the process. Maya Angelou needs to learn to be practical!
Especially when young, Maya Angelou is apt to push herself beyond her limits and burn out by ignoring her bodily needs, trying to do too much and not giving herself time to rest and relax.
