Fire: Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius.
These Signs want to be surrounded by others who share their willingness to set off on an adventure or challenge. Always bounding forward, they rarely stop to smell the flowers and experience life for its beauty rather than its action. They can often seem like busybodies and restless, but they are also the engine to the train that keeps the spirit alive. Though they may be denoted for their evil and force, fire is also life and warmth. The hearth of the home and the sun in the sky.
Water: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces.
These sings make others feel that no matter what happened, everything is going to be alright and they’re there for you. Though often a little on the emotional side, water elements have the advantage of change. They experience life through the ups and downs of being human and the experience that makes our hearts hurt. Water signs change with the tide and represent the rebirth of something. Much like fire, it represents life, but also floods that destroy the mind and soul when overwhelmed.
Air: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius.
These signs most desire the freedom to think and say what’s on their minds and share their ideas. They wish to gain knowledge and understand themselves and the world they are in. this often leads to them being lost in thought or distant from others. Freedom is their main goal and they achieve it through mental strength. Air signs are the life that lives around us. Always there, but dangerous when too much or too little. They are the ones that knock down the barriers of the old and understood and reap what is to be sown, like the Tornado.
Earth: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn.
To capture their hearts one must first earn their respect. All show and no substance will leave you cold. Earth elements are often too grounded in their ways and sometimes need to be shown that there are alternate ways of thought. They may be hard to befriend, but once friends with them they are there for you, solid as stone and never wavering. Earth is the solid mass of life that, like the air, is always and ever shall be there. Old as time, and true as steel. One does not move a mountain, nor does one provoke a giant.
