The 12 Zodiac Signs & Their Elements

Do you believe in zodiac signs? Whether you do or don’t – even the most skeptical of us can’t deny that strong characteristics often link people to their zodiac sign. For example when we observe that a person is very similar to us, just to find out that we share the same zodiac sign. 

Each of the 12 zodiac signs can be linked to one of the four elements: fire, air, water and earth. If you don’t know which element belongs to your zodiac sign, you’re about to find out.

Fire Signs: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius

As their element already suggests, fire signs are fiery. They can light up a room, but they can also, to stay with the metaphor, burn your house down. They are passionate, creative, adventurous and have an immense energy. As quickly as they can get angry, they also forgive easily. Fire signs are born leaders who inspire others to become the best version of themselves.

Water Signs: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces

Water signs are highly intuitive and emotional. When it comes to their loved ones they are super supportive. People like to talk to them, as they radiate a peaceful and gentle energy. Profound conversations are what water signs love the most. Being ultra-sensitive, they can sometimes get overwhelmed by their feelings – and tend to wall themselves off. Water signs can be as mysterious as the ocean itself. 

Air Signs: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius

Free-spirited, communicative and witty are some of the typical air sign traits. They are master communicators and love to socialize, coming up with new ideas all the time – but also prone to having their heads in the clouds. If you want to have a philosophical discussion, air signs are your go-to conversation partners.     

Earth Signs: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn

Earth signs, just as fire signs, live up to their element – they are grounded and bring the ones surrounding them down to earth. Most of the time they are practical and realistic, but they can also be very emotional. Sometimes they tend to be stubborn and unyielding. But when it comes to their loved ones, earth signs are incredibly loyal and stick with you through the hardest of times. 

To which element does your zodiac sign belong? Do you find your own character traits reflected in there? I can’t wait to read your thoughts about it in the comment section below.
