The Elements In Astrology

Each zodiac sign is a unique combination of an Element and a Mode. There are four elements (and three modes), which are also known as Quadruplicities. The four elements are:

Fire Earth Air Water

FireEarth, Air and Water.

Fire needs to burn bright! Earth is solid and reliable… Air gets everywhere! While water goes deeper than the others…

Our dominant element is a good indicator as to what motivates us. It’s our basic principles and how we deal with challenges and conflict.

Generally, the elements will get on well together – fire with fire, earth with earth… That’s because there is a natural and shared motivation. But before you rush ahead and read about the element of your Sun sign, you’ll want to know that it’s worth taking into consideration your Moon, Venus, Mars and Mercury signs, and your rising sign and midheaven to get the best idea of your predominant element.

You’ll know all of the signs by looking at your individual birth chart, for help, read How Do I Work Out My Birth Chart.

☆ The Fire signs are Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius 

The Earth signs are Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn ☆

The Air signs are Gemini, Libra and Aquarius ☆

☆ The Water signs are Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces ☆

Just remember that looking only at the element of your star sign (your Sun sign) will give a very narrow indication of your personality – especially if it’s very different from the bigger picture!

Though you’re a Taurus you might have a LOT of Fire, you could be Sagittarius but be very Watery in your chart…

For the best analysis, a professional astrologer is best placed to help you interpret your chart.
