I’ve got a lot more new followers lately, so wanted to do a few more posts to help people just getting into it! So, what even are the elements?
There are four elements: fire, earth, air, and water. Every sign has an element assigned to it, and its element never changes. These are one way the signs are grouped, and they say something about the characteristics of a sign.
The groups are as followed:
Fire - Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Earth - Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn
Air - Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
Water - Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
The cool thing about elements is that the signs are really like the element!
FIRE signs have similar characteristics in that they are passionate, impulsive, and strong willed. Imagine a fire in your head, the way it burns and flickers, setting anything in its path alight. This represents the fire signs.
EARTH signs have similar characteristics in that they are stubborn, realistic, and reliable. Imagine a big oak tree, and how it grows around whatever lay in its way, acting as a stable nurturer for plants and animals around it. This represents the earth signs.
AIR signs have similar characteristics in that they are dynamic, adjustable, and charismatic. Imagine a strong breeze, hurtling past you as it plays with the birds and waves, making its way past forests and buildings. This represents the air signs.
WATER signs have similar characteristics in that they are empathetic, caring, and optimistic. Imagine a long river, winding its way around obstacles, and always reaching its end goal. This represents the water signs.
