It does not matter that we cannot see air physically - it is active, powerful, and, obviously, crucial to survival. In terms of magick, the element of air encourages newness, freedom, and visualization. Air is inspiring and imaginative, and all that must be done to connect with this element is take a deep breath - feel the freshness of air filling your lungs. Go outside and feel the gentle breeze against your face. Let these things remind you just how good it feels to be alive.

The air signs - Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius - are the “smart thinkers” of the bunch; the ones who are best at handling abstract reasoning, are naturally clever, and are skilled at being overall perceptive. They will handle issues with rationality, looking at all sides of the equation… Balance is important to the air signs, just as important as helping to make situations better. However, just as with the wind, the air signs can blow hot or cold - when off balance, air signs have a hard time coming back to full mind-body, usually focusing heavily on just one or the other (this is why meditation can be so beneficial for these signs). However, generally speaking, air signs are witty and full of thoughts, weaving through ideas as quickly as wind rustles the leaves of a tree.
Earth is the starting point of all magick, the centre of the elements, the Mother of everything - but, you probably already knew this! In terms of magick, think of the element Earth as a foundation. Much like the physical planet itself, the element of Earth is grounding, and its usage in witchcraft is based around growth, strength, and prosperity. The existence of Earth is what gives life to all other elements. It is the home of our flowing waters, the soil which provides us with growth, and the oxygen that allows us to breathe.

The earth signs - Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn - are all about grounding and stability. This translates into having very dependable, trustworthy, and practical personas. Earth signs are definitely the ones you can depend on for a measured approach. This may in turn cause them to neglect the emotions of their peers, as they can become quite caught up in their own objectives. This occasional desire for material objects in helping lead to a happier life often deems them to be materialistic; however, these signs are really just extra firm in their ideals and passionate about their goals.
(That being said, it is still healthy for such signs to try and maintain a healthy balance of possessions and self).Much like the planet Earth itself, earth signs are simply strong in their desires to obtain a comfortable environment through a stable, grounded life.
