Elements of Nature – Influence on one’s personality

I am someone who believes in Sun signs and horoscope when it comes to analyzing someone’s personality. I somehow find the description perfectly apt. While I was browsing, I found this amazing description of personality based on the four elements of nature. Did some further browsing and here are the results. enjoy 🙂

FIRE sign types (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) are high energy people who need a lot of room to move.  Fire represents the life force glowing within us. They are often physically active with strong opinions and an abundance of creative ideas.  They are usually confident, optimistic, outgoing and adventurous, and may make good salespeople or promoters.  They have a strong sense of self and are better givers than receivers.  They are visionary and need some area of their lives in which they can be leaders. This element projects self expression, creativity, courage and enthusiasm.

Negatively, they may be self-centered and find it difficult to listen to others or consider alternative viewpoints.  They tend not to be very flexible or good at spotting details. Word of caution – over expression of fire can turn assertiveness into aggression.

EARTH sign types (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) : Associated with the signs of Taurus, Capricon and Virgo, Earth represent the practical, realistic material side of our nature, it seeks to assert a stable, secure, structured environment into which we can function. Earth people are practical concerned with physical comforts, money and the material world.  They are excellent business people and may be employed in banking, financial services, construction, farming, or any field requiring an ability to deal with money, land or tangible realities.  You’ll recognize an earth sign at home or at the office by the comfortable and substantial furniture, high quality sound system, or the money jar on the desk!  It’s important to them to be building something solid in life. Earth is patient and reliable, solid and strong. Earth can be a stabilizing force in a relatioship contributing to balance and harmony.

Negatively, earth signs can be stubborn, unimaginative, anti-social or stuck in routine.  They can be narrow-minded and closed to new ideas.

AIR sign people (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) are socially oriented and usually relate first to others through conversation.  These folks are intelligent, curious, broad-minded, well-read and love to keep up with current events and information.  They are delightful to have at parties because they help draw other people out.  They are friendly yet need space in their relationships and will keep a respectable distance between themselves and others.  They are inventors and idea people, occasionally exhibiting a touch of genius. Air contributes inventiveness, originality and versatility to the personality. It gives that feeling of freedom, unattachment, it reaches out to the mental self. Enjoy that refreshing gentle breeze, allow thoughts to flow freely and nourish the creative moment. Air expresses love of people, the ability to intellectualize, to appreciate the differences in people.

Negatively, air signs can be too detached, scattered or “spaced out.”  They may have trouble being aware of their emotions or feeling comfortable with intimacy. Air should seek to maintain practicality and develop consistency in dealing with the real world.

WATER sign types (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) have tremendous depth and emotional capacity.  These are the people who cry easily and will give hours of their time to help a friend in need.  They are moved by the unseen realities of life and often help open others to their feelings, dreams and inner world.  You’ll often notice your water sign friends saying, “I just had a hunch about that,” or “My intuition told me it was okay.”  Water sign people are tender, compassionate, helpful and insightful.  It may even seem that they can see through you!  They like to be in the water, enjoying swimming, scuba diving or luxurious bubble baths. This sign influences the conscious and sub-conscious forces that act on our lives. Water seeks to heal and nurture those around it.It allows one to feel their pain and suffering and offer sincere compassion. However, when uncontrolled it can send emotions on a turbulent path resulting in moodiness and unpredictable highs and lows.

Negatively, water signs can be over-emotional, over-indulgent and over-dependent on the good opinion and support of others.  Their sense of self can be weak and they can favor fantasy over reality. Weakness can result from being too protective and possessive of their loved ones.

If you notice that you have traits of more than one of these element types, you’re in good company.  We are all a blend of two or more types.  Yet there is usually one element that provides a clue to our most dominant traits.  This predominant element is not always the same as the Sun sign, which explains why a person with the Sun in Leo may act more like a Virgo, and so forth.  The more chart placements you have in a particular element – Fire, Earth, Air or Water – the more you will recognize yourself as a “type” in the above descriptions.
