Fire Signs: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Key Word: Act

Fire can keep you warm, or it can be explosive. They are the ones who light up the room with their spirited energy. At their best, these signs are energetic, passionate, and creative. They live to spark life in the world around them. Their downfall is to act first, think later. When they exert too much energy, they tend to burn out. But just like a phoenix, they rise again from their own ashes. Nurture them, kindle their flames, and they will shine through the darkest of nights.

The Earth Signs: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn
Key Word: Build

Earth is the foundation for everything. It is what gives our world structure. It is the very ground in which we plant our feet. Loyal, kind, and practical, Earth signs are naturally grounded people. They win the race by going slow and steady. They live to manifest through tangible, relatable processes as they are the “builders” of the zodiac. And of course, the most connected with Mother Nature. When out of balance, they can become materialistic and critical.

The Air Signs: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
Key Word: Think

Air signs are made up of mental energy. Quick-witted and intelligent, they are like a breath of fresh air. Information is their gold as these signs are the world’s “communicators”. Their curiosity is boundless and they will bounce ideas around like the breeze. Their downfall is the tendency to intellectualize their emotions. Air signs have a tendency to detach. On one hand, this gives them the gift of perspective; but on the other, they often miss out on making real connections.

The Water Signs: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
Key Word: Feel

Water is the giver of life. Emotional, sensitive, and otherworldly, water signs are as deeply mysterious as the ocean. Never ones to be caught analyzing, they make decisions based on feelings and gut-instinct. They often have intense dreams and psychic intuition. At their best, they are imaginative and compassionate. At their worst, they become reclusive and moody. Because they can absorb other people’s emotions so easily, it tends to make them prone to escapism. It is important for water signs to learn the value of meditation in order to achieve emotional balance.
