Your first step in learning astrology is knowing the different zodiac signs and what they mean. And that's exactly what we explain in the guide below. Read on for your first lesson on reading the stars.
The Four Elements
Each of the 12 zodiac signs belongs to one of four elemental categories, fire, earth, air, and water...
- Fire Signs
The fire signs are Aires, Leo, and Sagittarius. They are strong, intuitive, and intelligent.
Very emotionally reactive, they love exciting, new things and hate the mundane. They're often so passion-driven that they overlook small details, including the impact of their own actions.
- Earth Signs
The earth signs are Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn. Earth signs are logical, highly adaptable, and well-attuned to the five senses. Their ability to think things through and adapt to change makes them very loyal friends.
- Air Signs
The air signs are Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius. Air signs are lead by their mind. While they may seem objective and removed, they are very social, excellent communicators, and good leaders.
- Water Signs
The water signs are Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces. Water signs are very emotion-driven creatures. They are sensitive, passionate, and, above all, empathetic.
Their own emotions, and the emotions of others, are everything to a water sign.
