THE ELEMENTS OF ASTROLOGY
The twelve zodiac signs are grouped together into four elements; air, water, fire and earth. They all have a long history, these four elements have been the pillar of everything we are surrounded by. Below is how each sign is categorized;
Earth Signs: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn
Air Signs: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
Water Signs: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
Air signs are the thinkers, communicators, and doers of the zodiac. They analyze, synthesize, and probe. They breeze through life, never stopping to catch their breath. They have a “live and let live” mentality, and their intelligence helps them make decisions easily.
Air signs are the leaders of society. They have the ability to see situations from an intellectual perspective without being clouded by emotion. Air signs are all about ideas, achievements, and correct information. Air aims to bring one’s soul in contact with the deeper knowledge by expanding it to its full potential, knowing no bounds.
Air signs know how to get any party started! They can get along with anybody—including those who aren’t part of their social group. Air signs are masters of both small talk and deep convos, and they know how to use their wit to get them out of awkward moments.
Earth sign traits can be very comforting, they are the grounded people on the earth and help remind us to start with a solid foundation. They are known as the "builders" of the zodiac signs, with loyal, organized and practical traits and stick by those close to them in hard times. Often the earth sign will have a calming energy and you will actually feel down to earth with them around.
Earth signs are the most grounded peeps on the planet—you know, the ones who always keep it one hundred percent real. They’re known to be stable, pragmatic, and unwavering. Slow to anger, it takes a lot of effort to get them frustrated. But when they’re annoyed, watch out!
Sensual to the core, they love to collect material objects—especially when they’re treating themselves as a reward for all their hard work. Never ones to abandon a project or relationship, they’ll keep it all going and remain friendly till the bitter end. Their patience and artistic skills are amazing. They’ll always use their beautiful minds and high standards to work on long-term projects that require a lot of energy and commitment—but it must align with their values.
Fire signs are known for being highly creative, passionate, dynamic, and temperamental people. They tend to be rebels because of their charisma and enthusiasm, and they can easily motivate others. A single spark can set off a forest fire. As a result, fire signs need to be nurtured and managed carefully. They often wear their emotions on their sleeve and are dynamic with multiple interests or skills. If you want something done fast, call a fire sign. They are impeccably good at getting things done.
Impatient by nature, they’re always moving forward, passionately chasing their goals—and never looking back. Because of their impulsivity, they rarely reflect on the past. Instead, they’re always racing toward the future. Never apologetic, they use their drive to make sh*t happen. They believe they were born for greatness—and TBH, they’re not wrong. In fact, they have the utmost drive for success… Fire cannot be contained, so these signs are often found taking the lead in a group or off doing their own thing.
Water signs are the most intuitive of the zodiac signs, they can be as mysterious as the ocean itself. They usually have very clear dreams and will make you feel heard and seen. Like water, they can be refreshing, or they can drown you in their depths. They are very nurturing and known to be bleeding hearts. If you need someone to talk to about deep things, they are usually happy to lend an ear. They are very comforting people. Security is important to them—after all, water needs a container, or it dries up and disappears.
Emotional and creative, they rely on their hearts and gut to make a decision. Logic and reason are second to their feelings—which is how they navigate the material world. These signs also long for security at all times, which makes sense as they’re protective of their loved ones and themselves. They do everything they can to help the ones they care about, even if it’s at their own expense.
They tend to hold on to people and items long past their expiration dates, and their emotions are always flowing like the waves of the oceans. These signs have intense dreams, visions, and intuition so strong that it’s basically a psychic power. They can see situations happening from a mile away before it actually happens IRL.
