About Those Sun Signs

We are NOT one dimensional – we have Astrological layers! There are 12 signs of the Zodiac. In addition to the characteristics that are assigned to a Sun sign, each will also have traits of one of 4 Elements – Air, Fire, Water, Earth and exhibit the behaviors of one of 3 personality types (modes)-  Cardinal, Fixed, Mutable.

The attributes that are associated with these Elements and Modes add depth to the personality of our Sun sign.

Elements: (Triplicities)

Air: Analytical, social, cerebral- Gemini, Libra, Aquarius

Water: Emotion, sensitive, artistic – Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces

Fire: Enthusiasm, energy, volatile – Aries, Leo, Sagittarius

Earth: Dependable, practical, hardworking – Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn

Cardinal: Initiators, leaders – Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn (Notice that they follow the Equinox/Solstice seasonal changes in North America)

A Sun sign along with their Element and Mode can contribute to how we operate, how we respond and often how we get along with one another.

Air signs are usually most compatible with Fire signs and Earth signs are most compatible with Water signs. But, as always – it’s all good.
