Definition of Element

An element is one of the basic building blocks of the universe. There are four elements; fire, Earth, air, and water. We need all four to survive. In astrology, every sign of the zodiac belongs to one of these elements.

Signs of the same element usually get along, because they have the same basic tenets in their foundation. The fire elements are Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius. The earth elements are Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn. The air elements are Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius. The water elements are Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces. Each sign also belongs to a quadruplicity, which helps to determine each one’s basic character traits.
