Fire, Water, Air & Earth: The Four Astrology Elements Explained
Which one are you?
The 12 zodiac signs are split into four main elements: fire, water, air and earth. There are individual traits that pertain to each elemental group. All four elements come together to shape the natural world in which we live in. As such, each of these elements are in some way co-dependent. Let's dive in to find out more!
FIRE SIGNS: ARIES, SAGITTARIUS & LEO
When you think of fire, you think of adjectives such as passionate, emotional and energetic. Individuals born under this sign tend to be all these things while also nurturing and kind. They can switch between these emotions quite frequently so caution should be taken. It's best to manage their emotions carefully as they can either burn out really quickly or stay warm for a while.
WATER SIGNS: CANCER, PISCES & SCORPIO
Individuals born under the water sign often exhibit personality traits such as sensitivity, perceptiveness and sentimentality. They can sometimes feel as deep as the ocean itself, and can be difficult to decipher at the same time. They can either renew people or drown them. Water individuals need to feel stable and secure, or they spill over and disappear.
AIR SIGNS: AQUARIUS, LIBRA & GEMINI
Air signs are often always on the go. They enjoy being active and forming new ideas. They sometimes come in like a wrecking ball and people around them can't help but move with their wind. They're adventurous and are particularly good at breathing new air into an otherwise stale environment.
EARTH SIGNS: CAPRICORN, TAURUS & VIRGO
Earth signs, much like the element itself, are down to earth and "grounded" people. They like to be honest and sometimes borderline blunt with their words. They like to take things slowly by building a foundation first before anything else. Individuals born under this sign are often known to be loyal and secure in themselves. Sometimes, however, they can only look at things at surface level, making their shells hard to crack.
