Last updated by Susan Taylor

The 12-star signs are split into 4 zodiac element groups; Fire, Earth, Air, and Water, and each group represents both a type of energy and a way of approaching life. Indeed, they all exert great influences on our temperaments and attitudes. The Fire signs (Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius), group together the energetic personalities with warm temperaments. The Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn) correspond to calm and reasoned individuals. The Air signs; (Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius) are linked to communication and creativity. And, the Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces) are the most emotional and intuitive. Susan Taylor reveals how each zodiac sign element influences your personality.

Fire gives life, and Earth allows it to be incarnated. Consciousness awakens with Air, while Water brings emotion. As we can see, each element corresponds to qualities, a particular vibration that permeates the world and interferes with the garden. And the astrological signs are no exception to the rule. In order of appearance, Aries starts the wheel of the zodiac with Fire. Next comes Taurus, with the dense energy of Earth. Then Gemini with a sigh before welcoming Cancer with Water.

To understand the zodiac signs, it's essential to know the symbolic meanings of the four elements of the zodiac.

Fire signs include Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius: This group is zealous and determined

Fire signs

Just like their ruling element, the Fire signs are enthusiastic, dynamic, and powerful. They can be identified by their passionate, outgoing and brave attitudes to life. Things can go either of two ways with these three signs; either they love you or they hate you. That's right, with them, things and either black or white.

Fire signs are full of burning confidence, ambition, and willingness to succeed. They can do anything if they set their minds to it, although they do at times need help channeling their energy. Fire induces vitality, gives great energy resources and directs activities outward. But, Fire also provokes excesses, overflows, impulsiveness, meaning it can make people arrogant or self-centered. 

Fire signs
Best qualities:
Passion and drive.
Worst traits:
Short temper and pushiness.
Best career path for them:
Leaders/management positions.

Earth signs include Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn and are known for being pragmatic and sensible

Earth signsEarth signs are known for their smart and logical decisions; they definitely have their feet firmly on the ground. Solid, grounded, stable and perseverant are the best adjectives to describe these three signs. These natives can come across as a little cold and distant at the beginning, but once you get to know them a little better, they become a lot friendlier and warmer.

The Earth element induces realism, it gives practicality and draws attention to concrete, useful and material things. But, it also provokes rigidity, obstinacy, resentment and can make people stubborn or petty. 

Earth signs
Best qualities:
Smart and reliable.
Worst traits:
Distant and shy.
Best career path for them:
Decision-making reliant roles.

Air signs group together Gemini, Libra and Aquarius and make for fantastic orators

Air signsAir signs are very gifted when it comes to communication and social exchanges. They are naturally very friendly and warm, although their chattiness can at times distract them from their zodiac sign goals.  These signs love learning new things and satisfying their natural curiosity. This group is known for its logical thinking, fairness and intelligence. The one downside is their superficiality.

This astrological component blesses natives with good communication skills and makes people curious, sociable and adaptable. These personalities seek to understand situations, mechanisms, and people. However, when Air disperses will and objectives, it gives you a mocking, superficial or casual attitude.

Air signs
Best qualities:
Communication skills and intelligence.
Worst traits:
Naรฏve and unfocused.
Best career path for them:
Educational jobs.

Water signs group together Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces. They are known for being emotional and creative

Water signs

Water is the zodiac element of emotions, feelings, and sensitivity. Signs linked to this component are secretive, emotional and have great intuition, yet they lack a sense of reality and choose to live in fantasy worlds. They also have a hard time dealing with materialistic people. Water signs make amazing artists and are usually the most creative zodiac sign. They are kind and fun, but if you hurt their feelings, they are likely to go crazy.

This powerful component makes natives emotional, sentimental and intuitive. It can also add secretive, sometimes mysterious and preoccupied elements to personalities too. That said, Water provokes irrational behaviors based on emotions and is a feature that dramatizes and sometimes brings confusion.
