Astrology has four elements among the 12 signs – fire, earth, water, and air. These elements describe the quality and traits of each sign. Earth signs tend to be grounded, stubborn, slow and steady, loyal, and practical. Water signs tend to be mysterious, deep, and emotional.
However, fire and air signs are different. They are passionate, motivated, actionable, dynamic, and temperamental. Here is how to understand the fire and air signs.
Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius are the three air signs. They are great communicators and thinkers among all zodiac signs.
These wiseacres lead with their Brains. When handling a situation, they analyze, process and probe. They gush through life, never stopping to catch their flow. They are good decisions makers, and their intelligence plays a vital role. They follow a “live and let live” mentality.
You can always rely on Air signs for leadership qualities. They make good leaders in society. They always see a situation from an intellectual perspective, they are people with hearts, but they know how to control emotions and not get clouded by them.
They can be stone-hearted or even seem emotionless at times. Their feelings and emotions are very private and protected most of the time. They do not want to wear it on their sleeves and walk around. Air signs always work on facts. They are full of ideas, facts, and achievements.
Air signs know better how to get any started! They are concerned about minor details and will point out every error. If you need some help getting some brilliant ideas, make your first call to them – they could be your saviors.
They are very sociable, even with those who aren’t part of their social group. Air signs are experts in deep conversations and small talk. They are witty and brilliant enough to use that wit to get out of any awkward moments.
Their humor, timely action, and charming nature mean they radiate at any social gathering. If you think of a merrymaker, you’re probably thinking of an air sign.
Geminis are a mutable air sign. They are flexible and prone to changes. From a mile away, this chatty sign can understand situations. This, in turn, helps them to make decisions effortlessly. Geminis are constantly struggling between right and wrong, making them seem flighty.
However, they want to ensure they’re making the right decision. You can share gossips, news, and secrets with Geminis. However, they do have flaws, like any other sign. They’re addressed as two-faced because they’re extroverted, flexible, loyal, and clever while being emotionally manipulative.
They’re also indecisive, impatient, impulsive, nosy, and unreliable. They don’t take things too seriously. Before proving them wrong in an argument, think twice—they might not even have meant it!
Libras are cardinal air signs, which means they occur at the start of the season and are born leaders. They are also charming and thrive in social settings. So it’s no surprise that they are the biggest flirts of the zodiac. These intellectual Libras critique art and society to help shape the world.
Libras are the sign of relationships and tend to always be into someone. There’s no doubt someone else would be crushing on them too. Libras are always well-balanced. They always strive for fairness and justice.
They see issues from both sides, evaluate the situation and sometimes seek advice from others so that their decision doesn’t go wrong. Making the wrong decision is one of this sign’s worst fears. This is why they often overthink and are perfectionists.
Aquarius is a fixed air sign, which occurs in the middle of the season. Aquarians speak to and for the collective and are the humanitarians of the zodiac. They are adamant. Water bearers represent them as they give knowledge to the world.
They first analyze, process, and probe relationships, situations, and news slower than other air signs because they’re focused on the long term and the big picture. They are always trying to help society evolve better with their information.
Aquarians are sometimes called the “aliens” or “weirdos” as they march to the beat of their drum. They are always innovative, creative, and are intellectuals.
Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius are the three fire signs. Fire signs are passionate, creative, spontaneous, inspiring, and competitive.
Fire provides warmth but can also be destructive. Similarly, the people under this sign are very stimulating. When thinking of fire, remember that it needs fuel to ignite and burn. People of this sign need motivation and appreciation to keep themselves keep going.
When they don’t feel motivated, they are grumpy. A fire covered in ashes doesn’t mean it has died down. One cannot contain a fire in a closed place. A fire covered with ashes is powerful enough to light a forest fire, with little “spark and motivation.”
You’ll find these signs often taking the lead in the group. Fire signs are not concerned about pressure or the level of risk involved. They want the work done spontaneously. Fire is warming, inspiring, passionate, impatient, inventive, and idealistic.
Aries is associated with impulsivity and action. Being the only fire cardinal sign, they tend to act before thinking or challenge head-on when handling a situation. Aries always set goals and work effectively towards them. They always want to stand first and be ready to take the risk.
Aries are innovative, independent, and creative. They have the strength to start new things and inspire others to do the same. Their energy is infectious, and they are kids at heart. Aries also has the power to help others spiral out of indecision.
At their worst, Aries can be selfish, impatient, and rise to anger quickly. While they are quick to start on new projects, they can abandon them halfway if they lose interest. They are very independent and can be irritable if they feel controlled. They like being in charge of themselves but don’t hold themselves accountable.
Leos are the fixed fire sign. They know to look inside themselves. However, their purpose lies beyond looking in the mirror. They are fueled by generosity and wish to give others the same energy. They are creative and have the gifts to be a light for people around them.
A Leo, at their best, can see the positive impact they have on people. Leos are strong and self-reliant. Leos are not afraid to work hard; they focus on succeeding. They want to pave their own way. Getting constructive criticism can hurt their ego, causing them to spiral and question everything.
This also means they don’t like asking for help or being told what to do. Leos can learn something from Aquarians. Leo’s motto is, “if we cant come together for a common cause, what’s the point?”
Sagittarius is the mutable fire sign. They always have people around and are the best conversationalists. They are exciting, spontaneous, independent, honest, fair-minded, funny, and intellectual. They are always helping others by inspiring. They do not hesitate to ask for what they deserve.
At their worst, Sagittarians can come off as preachy, unresearched, and shallow. They can also move on when they get bored, causing them to have a reputation for being commitment-phobes. If you want someone to cause drama and walk away, call on an unevolved Sagittarius.
