the four elements.
As early as the Renaissance, the twelve zodiac signs were divided among four element signs with three signs associated with each element. Together they form the natural world, so each element in some way depend on each other.
The Element of Earth - Attached to the zodiac signs Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn.
Earth is immovable and stiff, therefore needing air for balance however their challenge is to be able to recognise this due to its transparency, fast pace and instability.
The Element of Air - Attached to the zodiac signs Gemini, Libra and Aquarius.
This is the element that connects all other elements, it opens our lungs, gives us room to breathe, and opens our soul to freedom. People born under this sign may have a problem with the regular order of their surroundings therefore their main goal is to stop worrying about others opinions or pleasing others, and just follow their own liberating ideas. People of Air signs are balanced by the element of Earth, needing a healthy routine and physical activity to remain aware of their physical existence.
The Element of Fire - Attached to the zodiac signs Aries, Leo and Sagittarius.
Although fire may have no fear, this element needs air to help stay alight.
The Element of Water - Attached to the zodiac signs Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces.
It is almost impossible for water to find direction if there is no contact with fire, as this offers passion, energy and direction. After all, water alone may be magical, however without direction it will disperse.
