Pitta people are fiery! Their strong fire element gives them drive and passion, and makes them purposeful and focused. They are loyal, reliable, sharp and funny (often sarcastic humour). They can focus, they like to have goals and will usually achieve them.
Their fire also makes them critical, impatient, snappy, and controlling. They like to be right. They have a moderate build, get hot easily, and have a strong appetite. Don't be around a Pitta if they've skipped their lunch!
Pitta people are prone to particular ailments. They can easily overwork and overexercise and burn themselves out, leading to excess heat and inflammatory conditions in the body. So they need to chill out, make time for fun and see the beauty in life and in other people (especially those who do not have their drive and action!).They need to keep cool, physically and metaphorically, and take time to smell the roses, literally.
