There are four main elements that make up this planet. The four elements are earth, water, air, and fire. Each of these elements work together to sustain the planet. They all play a major role in our lives. Astrology is based off of these four elements. If you are a believer of astrology or just like to read a horoscope for fun every now and then you may have noticed your sign in alignment with one of these elements.
Earth: Taurus, Capricorn, Virgo
Water: Cancer, Pisces, Scorpio
Air: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
Fire: Aries, Sagittarius, Leo
Each of these signs describe the element itself. Earth signs are known to be productive, resourceful, and reliable. This makes sense as the Earth is full of resources. We feel grounded to the Earth as we rely on its gravitational pull to keep us balanced. We rely on the Earth to grow our food. The Earth keeps us productive as it is constantly rotating through the seasons. The Earth is in constant motion and you might notice earth signs act very similar, they always in constant motion with their daily lives.
Water signs are known to be sensitive, intuitive, and adaptable. If you notice when a leaf falls into a still lake the water immediately begins to start a ripple effect stretching the entire length of the lake. Water is a very sensitive element. Water moves with the natural current of the ocean due to the gravitational pull of the moon. When you fill a glass of water, it immediately takes the shape of the glass. This shows how adaptable water is to any situation it is placed in. You will find that water signs act very similar to this in any situation.
Air signs are known to be quick, creative, and social. The wind acts very similar in the way as it moves quickly. If you look up at the clouds in the sky you see the speed of the wind carrying them. Air is completely social as we all breathe the same air. Air signs are very creative people, the atmosphere and weather are always changing in different ways. You might notice the lightness of these people when you are around them. They are easy to get along with and very interesting people!
Fire signs are known to be enthusiastic, direct, and outgoing. Fire obviously acts the same way iit is hot, direct, and loud. Fire burns very brightly and ignites everything in its way. Fire sign people act this same way of igniting everyone they meet. They have a strong fire burning within them. They are very enthusiastic people and magnetic to be around. Similar to the element of fire, people with this sign’s element bring everyone they meet into their excitement for life!
