ELEMENTS AND OUR ‘PERSONALITIES’

HOW THE ELEMENTS INFLUENCE OUR PERSONALITIES

THE AIR PERSONALITY
These personalities tend to be rational and analytical. They prefer logic and carefully thought out ideas over impulsive or irrational behavior.
Air types enjoy mental stimulation in their interaction with family, friends and colleagues. A great evening out for them would include a lively exchange of thoughts and ideas.
Life is all about finding balance and learning to overcome your shortcomings and challenges.
When Air is out of balance it can become critical and judgmental and has a tendency to become over-analytical and nit-picky until it almost literally blows a thing apart.
This tendency can be particularly detrimental or destructive when a creative idea or project is in the beginning stages and could do with a little tender, loving care and positive nurturing rather than over thinking everything and looking at all the things that could go wrong.
Too much Air (talking, discussion) and there is a danger that things can become “airy fairy” and plans may never materialize. So the secret is to find a balance and to build on your strengths and work on your weaknesses
Star signs governed by Air include:

 THE FIRE PERSONALITY
‘Fiery’ personalities are warm and extrovert, with a strong sense of fun and playfulness. They are often charming and charismatic, passionate and intense. They love living life to the full.
They are usually very intuitive and tend to base decisions on their “gut instincts” rather than on careful consideration and deliberation.
They make good leaders and are often attracted to creative pursuits where they have a chance to shine. When it comes to relationships, they enjoy adventure and risk-taking and can feel trapped or bored by too much domestic routine.
When Fire is out of balance it can become destructive. Too much Fire can lead to “burn-out”. If you find yourself taking on too much, remember to set boundaries and limits and learn to say “no” when necessary.
These personalities love drama and being in the limelight, but need to be careful that they don’t become selfish and take over. They need to make room for others to ‘shine’ too.
Too little fire, however, can be linked with a lack of vitality and low energy, which can lead to hopelessness, depression and a lack of motivation. As always, it’s all about finding balance. Listen to your body and keep your ‘spark’ alive.

 THE WATER PERSONALITY
Water personalities are emotional, sensitive and spiritual and often have a well-developed 6th sense. Water types are the poets and dreamers, approaching life from a felt sense, rather than from thought (Air), spontaneity (Fire) or practicality (Earth).
They are romantic, nurturing and empathic when it comes to relationships but can be prone to being a bit over sensitive and imagine insults where none exist.
Lack of Water creates difficulties in forming relationships, because the person shies away from emotional intimacy and finds close contact difficult. This could be because they struggle to access and share their own feelings. A lack of empathy and intuitive / psychic skills are also indicated.
Too much water can lead to being awash in a sea of emotion and flooded by feelings that are difficult to contain. It becomes challenging to function and operate in the everyday world.
One of the ways to find balance in dealing with these emotions is to practice ‘earthing’ or ‘grounding’ yourself. One of the simplest ways of doing this is by walking barefoot on grass or sea sand.
Star signs governed by Water include:

THE EARTH PERSONALITY
‘Earthy’ personalities are home-loving, dependable and loyal, and are in their element when surrounded by their family. They really know how to enjoy the pleasures of the senses – food, material comforts and a healthy sexuality. Physical touch and affection are vitally important to them.
Too much Earth element can be stuffy, plodding and dull with an overemphasis on security and material possessions. Negative Earth finds it hard to take risks or try something new and can easily get stuck in a rut – they fear the unknown and it is easier to stay in a job or relationship that they no longer want because it is easier and safer than risking their material comfort and the unknown.
Too little Earth element can be associated with someone who struggles to focus or concentrate for long periods of time. They may lack determination and perseverance and find themselves having great dreams and ideas (especially if they have a strong Fire or Air influence) but not being able to bring them to fruition.
Star signs governed by Earth include:
Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn
