4 elements and 12 signs in astrology

The modern astrological education generally devotes little space to the elements ( fire, earth, air , water) , yet which are one of four founding pillars of astrology , with the signs , houses and planets .
We often forget , for example, that the signs of the same element share many common characteristics and it is always important for a first approach to the chart , identify the elemental dominant .
In fact, an element represents both quality energy and approach to life.
It is easier to make an interpretation (either a character or position) if the essence of each of the 4 elements has been entered. We will see in detail what is called triplicity , ie , the four groups of elements (each meet three characters) . This kind of simplicity will help when you try to relate the elements to human personality.


Elements/Modes Fire Earth Air Water
Cardinal Aries Capricorn Libra Cancer
Fixed Leo Taurus Aquarius Scorpio
Mutable Sagittarius Virgo Gemini Pisces

I . The Fire element | The signs of Aries, Leo and Sagittarius

The element of Fire The fire triplicity including cardinal sign of Aries , Leo fixed and mutable Sagittarius based on the idea of activity.
Whether you are marked by this element because your Sun or your Ascendant is a majority of planets in one or more fire signs , you present with those who have the same elemental dominance a number of similarities that can be expressed as:

Great vitality anime , you have energy resources above the average ( ie higher than other dominant elemental ) and this dynamism is naturally oriented towards concrete outdoor activities in a positivist attitude based on idea to fight and win, to undertake and succeed.

Your attitude is generally straightforward, spontaneous , straightforward . You prefer the straight line path diverted and action reflection.

To negative, you have excessive , too passionate nature and sometimes reckless because you act without considering the consequences too and let you easily talk your instincts or your ego. Motivated, enthusiastic but a bit " rough around the edges " , you can easily hurt the most sensitive natures own, including those marked by the Earth who have trouble keeping your pace and accept your lack of patience or disregard to your neighbor.

 

II . The element Earth | The signs of Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn

The element Earth The triplicity of land including the fixed sign of Taurus, the mutable sign of Virgo and Capricorn cardinal rests on the idea of ​​construction.
Whether you are marked by this element because your Sun or your Ascendant is a majority of planets in one or more earth signs , you present with those who have the same elemental dominance a number of similarities that can be expressed as:

You are above all a realistic and pragmatic and you wear your interest on concrete , useful and material things. You are quite conservative and you need to accumulate knowledge, emotions and goods for you to feel comfortable. That you have the qualities and skills that you develop gradually built what you are and there is therefore a common identification between having and being .

Temperament is rather high , that is to say that the reactions are not spontaneous , immediate . You need to assimilate, to "digest" the new situations such as meeting new people. The time factor is important to you and you often work at a slow pace but determined according to the adage that goes slowly goes surely.

Stable and reliable , in general you have patience and pragmatism , you do not like to take risks or you feel unsafe and routine tends to reassure you.

To negative, you often show stubbornness , obstinacy and you are very open to new ideas because you put time to accept and assimilate . The background is often shy , cautious and looking for tranquility. It may be difficult for you to you "move" as you are suspicious. Your steadiness and your taciturn nature can often be misunderstood by many people more sociable and lighter than you, especially those marked by the Air element.

 

III . The Air element | The signs of Gemini , Libra and Aquarius

The Air The air triplicity element comprising the mutable sign of Gemini , the cardinal sign of Libra and Aquarius fixed based on the idea of communication.
Whether you are marked by this element because your Sun or your Ascendant is a majority of planets in one or more signs of air , you will present with those who have the same elemental dominance a number of similarities that can be expressed as :

A great need for communication , discovery and exchange animates you . Curious , sociable , mind and thinking often take on pure action and may even eventually paralyze or weaken the force of internal debate . The main engine of life is a desire to understand (things like people ) .

The general attitude is sociable, gregarious, open to the world but can sometimes be too light or as passive temperament is very (sometimes too ) intellectualized .

The ability to communicate and a healthy curiosity vis-à- vis the thinking or the lives of others , how " it works " (and how) are often the pillars of the mind, which predominates over the action as emotions.

The Air element therefore has a wide range of people from the pure intellectual scholar such pretty distracted through the speaker or writer psychologist . Cartesian logic often very rational behavior , practice or technique can be difficult to be understood by the most intuitive natures, more spiritual , especially those marked by the element Water .

 

IV . Water element | The signs of Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces

Whether you are marked by this element because your Sun or your Ascendant is a majority of planets in one or more signs of water , you will present with those who have the same elemental dominance a number of similarities that can be expressed as :

High sensitivity and intense emotional needs you alive. Environmentally sensitive , receptive to ambiances , you draw much of your energy from others . This energy is largely turned inward , either defensively or in imaginative or spiritual . The main engine of life is a thirst to feel and perceive things intuitively .

The general attitude is rather secretive , reserved, sometimes mysterious as the inner life, rich , takes precedence over the rest . The report is on the other sensitive and fusion fashion : we often aspire to dissolve in the union and that the proposed relationship is familial, romantic , sexual or universal.

The ability to adapt and a provision to detach the material plane ( the dream or higher states of consciousness erotic meditation ) predisposes you to pay attention to feelings but you are easily distressed natures or tortuous . Especially that there is often a real compassion for others.

Water element therefore has a wide range of people from the artist inspired the monk through the doctor. Purely emotional or instinctive very irrational behavior often can be difficult to be understood by the most reactive in nature and facing immediate action, including those marked by the Fire element .
