What is an element?

There are four main elements in astrology: water, air, earth, and fire. Each of these elements corresponds to a different personality type and has different characteristics.

Water signs, for example, are emotional and sensitive. Water signs include Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces. Air signs, on the other hand, are intellectual and communicative. Air signs include Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius. Earth signs are practical and down-to-earth. Earth signs include Virgo, Taurus, and Capricorn. Finally, fire signs are energetic and enthusiastic. Fire signs include Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius.

Understanding the elements can help you better understand your own personality as well as the personalities of those around you. When you know which element dominates someone’s chart, you can better understand their strengths and weaknesses, as well as how they approach life.
