Their orange-ish and sometimes neutral hues represent both fire and earth. and since orange is often considered a social color, pumpkins are a perfect pairing to halloween + thanksgiving since orange promotes lively conversation and communication. the fire element makes us feel warm + gracious while earth is grounding + comforting.
The gourds’ round shapes embody the metal element which helps us stay focused + mentally clear-headed.
and since they bloom from a plant, pumpkins hold the wood element, too. this is the element that gives us flexibility + opportunity for new growth.
Should your pumpkin have a glossy sheen, water is also being expressed. and when we incorporate water into our space, we connect with the flow of life.
Remember, when all the elements are expressed around you, it nourishes a restorative sense within you.
So, as autumn lights wherever you are, stitch her fully into your space with a plump pumpkin or two.
