|After struggling with his own love life, L.A.-based spiritual counselor Martin came to this conclusion: “People love in different ways.” To delineate these ways, Martin looked to the four elements of astrology-Air, Fire, Earth, and Water-and found an intuitive system for determining one’s love style, and what that style means in terms of romantic relationships, that he delivers with a game sense of adventure. In broad terms, “Air” indicates a thinker who prioritizes communication; “Earth” types are practical and grounded; “Water” stands for emotion and intuition; and “Fire” is creative and enthusiastic. After filling out a questionnaire to determine one’s core style, readers will find a straightforward, in-depth examination of each elemental type, including strengths and weaknesses, famous examples (Clark Kent and Lucy Ricardo are Airs, Wonder Woman and James Bond are Fires) and a focus on “deeper needs.” Geared toward self-discovery and “Deep Inner Growth,” Martin’s guide discusses intimacy among the types while emphasizing how greater understanding enhances all relationships (not just romance).|
