The Elements and Their Significance

Posted 08/01/2003

The four elements associated with the signs are Fire, Earth, Air and Water. The balance of these elements in our charts may tell us something about our temperaments and overall attunements. This may be especially important for those who have a preponderance of planets in one element and for those who have little or no representation of an element. The Fire signs are Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius. Fire is high, hot energy that carries an indomitable spirit, lots of self-importance, and leadership capability. Those with lots of fire are generally bold, fearless, competitive, enthusiastic, and optimistic. They are the most likely to get speeding tickets. Their cars may have a dent or two, and they do run out of gas occasionally. Those low in fire energy may be more passive and more serious, and less courageous and less self-confident than their fiery counterparts. They are cautious drivers.

The Earth signs are Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn. Strong earth energy brings a grounded approach to life through practicality and a focus on the tangible, material world. An emphasis of earth energy brings perseverance, tenacity, dependability, integrity, and commitment to hard work. These folks are not as likely to get speeding tickets, but might collect a few parking tickets. Their cars will be washed, polished, well-tuned, and in good working order. Those low in earth energy may have a more difficult time with the practical and mundane details of life and be more attuned to spiritual or intellectual pursuits. They need a reliable mechanic and frequent maintenance checks.

The Air signs are Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius. People with a preponderance of the air element are wired toward thinking, the intellect, and communication. Air moves fast, and their minds are in constant motion as they travel the world of ideas. They are social and people-oriented, but not in an emotional way. Abstract thought, language, and mental dexterity tend to form the ways they relate to others. They are likely to talk their way out of traffic violations by reasoning with the cop. Their cars will have a supply of books on tape. The air filter may need frequent replacement. Those lacking air energy tend not to place much value on ideas. Lack of air doesn't necessarily suggest a lack of intelligence, but the pursuit of knowledge for its own sake probably isn't an overriding concern. Remaining objective could be an issue because of a potentially weak ability to appreciate other viewpoints. These folks need very clear directions.

The Water signs are Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces. A preponderance of water brings a subjective, emotional, and imaginative approach to life. Sensitive and easily hurt, emotions can overwhelm these folks. There may be a need to construct appropriate, protective boundaries around taking in and feeling pain. There is a strong sensitivity toward others, and emotional connections with others are critical to happiness. Water operates on hunches and instinct, and may be intuitive or psychic. These drivers take the scenic route and stop to help others in the breakdown lane. Their cars always have a supply of tissues in the glove compartment, but the radiator often gets overheated. Those with little or no water lack the emotional intensity of a watery person and tend to recover more easily from emotional setbacks. They may appear to others as detached and unfeeling. They do have an emotional life, although their feeling states are probably not an intensive learning area for them. Their cars need to have fluid levels checked periodically.
