Do you know what your astrological zodiac sign is and its element? The twelve astrology zodiac signs are grouped into four essential “elements”— the Earth, Air, Water, and Fire. It is because of these four elements that Life is made possible. Each of these elemental groups have their own distinctive traits on which the twelve zodiac signs are based on. The elemental symbolism of these twelve zodiac signs is so accurate that the specific element that each sign is under greatly influences the person’s unique personality traits.

Earth Signs – Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo
Earth signs are the most “grounded” individuals of all the other elements or signs. They keep things real. They are the ones who often remind us to work with solid foundations and bring us down to earth (to the real world) as necessary. Earth people are stable and loyal friends/ family members, and although on good days, at their best they are useful and practical, at their worst, they tend to focus too much only on the superficial surface of things other than delve into their deeper essence. They also tend to be materialistic. Nonetheless, Earth signs are slow and steady “builders” and are good at sticking by the side of others through the most difficult of times.
Capricorn (December 23 – January 20)
Capricorn earth sign is a deep and mysterious sign, much like the deepest depths of the earth. It represents the lower earth and is earth itself in its purest form. Like the Earth, Capricorns, can have many sides and take interest in all things practical ranging from material possessions to powerful, influential status symbols. They can also be dark in a way that they’re very conservative and may have difficulties appreciating the pleasures of life because they’re always concerned with career and the more serious aspects of everyday life. They can excel though in most things because they are reliable and innate hard-workers. They are the most loyal and down-to-earth of all signs.
Taurus (April 21 – May 21)
Taurus is the strongest and most stable sign of all twelve zodiacs. They always maintain solid foundations and help others, too, in building their own. They are nurturing, wise, and highly dependable. Taurus can be stubborn by nature though and unwilling to change. Nonetheless, they seek happiness and harmony and strive to create it by holding tight on to the things and people that matter to them. They are often classified as “earthly sensual.”
Virgo (August 22 – September 23)
Virgo represents the middle earth, hence typically, they tend to be indecisive or stuck somewhere in the middle of things. Nonetheless, Virgos are flexible, stable, helpful and can make great observers. They also think quickly with clear analytical precision and can live in their own earthly-mental plane. Virgo is not quite deep down or too up on the surface and is the least physical type of the three earth signs.
Air Signs – Aquarius, Gemini, Libra
Air signs are the “winds of change.” They are strong gusts of wind that hit you and move you. They are all about motion, ideas, and action. Like the breeze, they cannot be quite caught. While some Air signs may only seem true “airheads,” some of them can be as powerful as gravity-defying forces. You’ll never know where or when they will drop you the moment they sweep you off your feet. Air people can bring a breath of fresh air to everyone when things are getting stale though. They are also almost always an adventure waiting to happen.
Aquarius (January 21 – February 19)
Aquarius is the highest of the air signs. They are a powerful force that can twirl the world around like a blasting jet stream. And like an air circulating stream, the Aquarius sign can knock down barriers, seeking clarity and understanding whilst uniting everyone and everything. Aquarius is the sign of originality and change and can have the power to change others too as it does to itself; thus, they can be very erratic and unpredictable. They are the most advanced thinkers of the zodiac and they often seek for truth everywhere. They are often concerned with the future of mankind and the advancement of people or civilizations.
Gemini (May 22 – June 21)
Gemini is considered the most flighty of the astrological signs and indeed, they behave like the dust devil wind that pick up debris and swirl with it before letting it go to explore off to another place. Geminis never feel complete and their sign of duality always makes them on the look out for someone or something that will complete them. When you force them to slow down, they cannot do so for long and they often don’t know what to do with it. They are also marked by their trait of indecisiveness but their sign is also the sign of communication. They are like the wind that forever flows to every nook, eager to know everything and everybody.
Libra (September 24 – October 23)
Libra represents air that circulates slowly and gently for breathing. Thus, they characteristically bring life, balance, and harmony to everyone and the world around them. Like precious air, Librans want to be in peace and to feel essential to the lives of every people they meet. They want to form a relationship of mutual balance with everyone—“I give you air so you give me life, too.” Thus, relationships are of top importance to the Libra sign.
Fire Signs – Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Fire signs can be highly passionate, dynamic, and even temperamental. Like fire itself, they can either keep you warm or scald or burn you. Fire can burn out pretty quickly once fuel is gone, but it can reignite its power even from the ashes. One spark can start a destructive forest fire! Hence, Fire people need to be nurtured well and dealt with carefully. Nonetheless, Fire signs can be high-fuel and can get things done pretty quickly.
Aries (March 21 – April 20)
Aries fire sign represents fire in its purest form. They are the most active of all zodiac signs and are interested in almost everything. They are adventurous, enthusiastic, and have vibrant child-like qualities. Like a fire that’s been carefully ignited in a fireplace, they are full of warm kindling traits as well as joy and light. They can also have heightened temperamental and dynamic qualities but only if provoked.
Leo (July 23 -August 21)
Leo is the fire sign that always seeks to be in the middle. They are like the sun that especially loves to be at the center of everyone’s attention. This is where they feel at their best and also perform their best. Also, like the sun, they are radiant and dependable and can help keep others under their control. They are steady and stable as well as grand and they can easily make their presence known.
Sagittarius (November 23 – December 22)
Sagittarius is the most gentle one of the three fire signs. They are symbolic of a fire that is slowly going out as it is nearing its end. They are often mystical and can be out of reach, and they tend to lean towards the philosophical. Their fire energy is geared towards higher philosophical ideals which makes them constantly wandering towards the most creative, idealistic pursuits.
Water Signs – Pisces, Cancer, Scorpio
Like water, Water signs can be as refreshing as the stream or they can be as dangerous as being able to drown you in their depths like the sea. They can be as deep and mysterious as the ocean and often have almost psychic-like intuitions and intense ambitions and dreams. Water people are intuitive, ultra-sensitive, and emotional. Security is also very important to them. Water, after all, requires containers or it will scatter around and disappear.
Pisces (February 20- March 20)
The Pisces sign represents the small creek that can adapt and change its flow directions. Pisceans are adaptable and very flexible. Their character is also like the beautiful creek that artists love to paint their pictures from. They are very inspirational, charming, and could be mystical and highly spiritual, too. Towards other people, they are generally calm and could be the sound can that relaxes you and put you to sleep. Pisces can mystify you and also, they are considered to be the most spiritual sign of the zodiacs.
Cancer (June 22 – July 22)
Cancer is the elemental zodiac sign that represents water in its purest, most basic form. It is genuine, nurturing, and the most concerned and helpful of all the other signs. When Cancer’s water is unleashed, however, they are like the river that overflows to its banks and can be very dangerous and aggressive especially when they feel the need to defend themselves or the people they love. Nonetheless, they are very family-oriented and love home and family life.
Scorpio (October 24 – November 22)
Scorpio represents the potentially great power that water has. Scorpios are full of intensity that is almost comparable to a raging river. If they’re not properly contained, they can wreak havoc on everyone or everything in their paths. They need to be under control and must also practice self-control. To be effective, they need their energy properly harnessed. It is like using a hydroelectric dam to help hold a raging river. Nonetheless, Scorpios provide power, light and protection to the people closest to them.
Significance of the 12 Zodiac Signs and Their Specific Elements
It is important to note that all of the twelve zodiac signs in their respective astrological elements must work together in perfect sync or in a way that one doesn’t get too much control over the others. This is so that all elements may co-exist peacefully to help sustain a more balanced life for everyone’s benefit.
Ideally, the four astrology elements form the natural world, so naturally, too, each sign should be in some way co-dependent with one another.
This is the main essence of astrology signs and their elements: balancing oneself with the others, no matter what sign, so that everyone can live pleasant, harmonious lives.
