As we move further and further into summer, we fall under the influence of the Pitta – a season governed by the elements of Fire and Water. Pitta qualities are: hot, light, sharp, mobile (spreading), liquid, oily and subtle. In the overall balance, Pitta energy is the force of transformation within us, without it change is impossible: fire takes one thing and transforms it into another. Pitta is our sharp mind, our intellect, our ability to take information, process and draw conclusions and make connections. It’s also the driving force within us.
