Elements in astrology
Groups of signs in astrology share certain characteristics that are cl
assified according to four earthly elements – fire, air, water and ear
th. It helps explain why some signs are more compatible than others.
The Fire signs are Aries (March 21 to April 19), Leo (July 23 to Au
gust 22) and Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21). Fire people
are leaders, dynamic. They light up everything around them. Because
Fire needs Air to exist, Fire signs are most compatible with the A
ir signs. Water is anathema to Fire and a Water person could try to
dampen the dynamism and enthusiasm that defines Fire.
The Air signs are Aquarius (January 20 to February 18), Gemini (May
21 to June 21) and Libra (September 23 – October 22). These are th
e idea signs, the air that breathes a spark into a flame. They can’
t be tied down. They require freedom of movement and thought.
The water signs of Cancer (June 22 to July22), Scorpio (October 23
to November 21) and Pisces (February 19 to March 20) are characteri
zed by the phrase still waters run deep. They’re emotional and sens
itive, given to deep thoughts and conversations. Just as water can
blur an image or hide secrets within its depths, so do Water signs
have secretive emotions and abilities. The Water signs are most co
mpatible with Earth signs.
The Earth signs are Taurus (April 20 – May 20), Virgo (August 23 to
September 22) and Capricorn (December 22 to January 19). They are st
able and consistent. While not as compassionate as the water signs,
they are nonetheless nurturing. They can be rigid (stick in the mud)
and easily stuck in routines. They are most compatible with Water s
igns, as Water is necessary for the Earth to properly nurture growin
g things. Earth helps Water contain itself, which is often necessary
for survival on the planet.
