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.

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.
