Astrology: How the Zodiac Relates To The Elements
The zodiac is a highly complex system of constellations that each have an archetypal energy that allows us to break down aspects of human existence and act as a map that we can study to unlock our greatest potential.
Today we are going to break down how the zodiac signs correlate to the four elements, Fire, Earth, Air, and Water.
Fire relates to the three signs, Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius. Fire is the element of passion, courage, drive, flamboyance, adventure, protection, and child like curiosity. When you are connecting to your fire you might feel a surge of confidence, like you can do anything. Our fire drives us to work towards what we are most passionate about.
The element of earth relates to the zodiac signs of Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn. Earth manifests itself as grounded, practical, task oriented individuals. When you are connecting with earth, you might feel secure, stable, and organized in whatever you are working towards. Earth helps you to have a stable foundation when you are working towards your goals.
The element of air relates to the zodiac signs of Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius. Water energy manifests as protection, boundaries, knowledge, truth, seeking education, communication, and the inner workings of the mind. Connecting with air is anything that deals with your thoughts and matters of the mind. It might feel like a new idea, or meditating to master your thoughts. Air helps you to have the insight to know where to place your foot next when working towards your passions.
The element of water relates to the signs of Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces. Water manifests itself as emotional intelligence, intuition, psychic abilities, connection in relationships, and creative energy. When working with water you might feel very creative. You might also have more ease in your relationships. You might also be more in tune with yours and others emotions. Water helps you when it comes to connecting with other people as well as your psychic gifts
The zodiac is a powerful tool that helps us to get to know ourselves. We have an entire chart that correlates to different aspects of ourselves. We will talk about all of that later. For now, think about the elements and how they manifest in your life. You don't necessarily have to have the signs mentioned above as major placements in your birth chart to feel the effects of the elemental energy in your life.
If you have no idea what i'm even talking about but are interested in connecting with the elements, just begin by noticing. Notice situations in your life and start to see how the elements might be at play. How do they manifest in yourself? How do they manifest in others?
Working with the elements is an excellent way to really connect with the world around you and even begin to connect to the spirit world and unlock a whole way to discover and heal your inner self.
