November greetings to All.
I want to talk to you about one of the two classifications of the signs of the Zodiac—The Elements.
The Elements (Fire, Earth, Air and Water) are based on ancient Greek philosophy. The ancients went back to square one, the building blocks of life: the solid earth upon which we stand, the running water we use as a resource, the air we breathe and the fire which keeps us warm and aids in the creation of additional resources. See the kinship to science.
As Astrology developed, the Greeks began attaching elemental characteristics to the Signs, seeing as how it made sense to place a watery label on a more emotional sort. This led to the classification of the Signs to their corresponding Elements.
The four elements and their corresponding Signs are Fire (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius), Earth (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn), Air (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius) and Water (Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces). While the Elements describe our basic nature, once combined in our overall astrological chart, they help to define us as a whole and complex person.
In looking at an individual’s astrological chart, the presence of more Fire Signs may well indicate a fiery, combustible personality. The absence of Earth Signs in a person’s chart would indicate someone who is not very grounded or practical. The presence of a mix of all of the Elements would be a sign of a well-rounded individual.
Each Element reflects a quality of human nature: Fire (think physical), Earth (think practical), Air (think intellectual) and Water (think emotional).
So the next time you are engaged in conversation and the person gets all bend out of shape or not making any sense, chances are they’re missing an element.
It’s a great day to be part of the Universe!
