Decembers Theme - FIRE ELEMENT..
The Fire element governs the heart organ-meridian system in TCM.
In TCM, the heart organ-meridian system's functions include regulating the cardiovascular system (including the heart itself, the blood vessels and the blood that flows through them) and maintaining the functioning of the nervous system
As we are in summer, the warmest season,  FIRE, is the 5 element ssigned to this time of year.
Fire can mean heat, something that is burning, also urgency or speed.
Fire gives life, warmth and also maturity. An emotion associated with Fire for example is happiness.
