Not to sound like Avatar, but we really all fall under one element. Unfortunately, these elements don’t give us any supernatural powers, but they are the external forces that influence the Zodiac.


Wherever we fall on the 12 Zodiac’s each of our star signs is ruled by an element. These are earth, wind, water, and fire. Each piece rules three signs out of the 12 signs and will therefore affect the personalities of each.

These are earth, wind, fire, and water. Therefore, while some signs may appear as different as day and night, they may make perfect friends or romantic partners due to sharing an element. So, where do you fall? Scroll below to understand your nature even better.

Before we get into the groupings, let’s get a base understanding of the signs. Fire signs are just as passionate as the element of fire. They are bold, brash, creative, and daring, and their tempers run hot. Earth signs are more solid and practical. However, they are sensory people drawn to material goods. Plus, they can be pretty stubborn and not easily yielding.

Water signs are intuitive beings. Emotional. And they are highly in touch with their subconscious. Sometimes you might even appear as overwhelmed. Next are air signs who are good communicators and display sharpness and intellect but can often be theoretical or fantastical.

In the study of astrology, the moon and water are powerfully linked. Therefore, water signs are deep and lunar. They speak to emotion, intuition, and memory. At their best, these signs feel everything and often make lovely artists as they are highly imaginative.

Moreso, they are loyal and compassionate. Due to their high sensitivity, water signs easily hurt and take things too personally. This, therefore, will make them moody and highly suspicious of others.

Air Signs - Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius

These intellectual and communicative signs are experts in the abstract. That is, things in this world that lack physical form, for instance, language and information. Like their ruling element, they drift everywhere from people to places and may overindulge in fantasy.

Despite having incredible social skills and excel at communication, Gemini’s Libra and Aquarius are more likely to ghost you and quickly get over you if you piss them off. Here is where you shall find them being cold, fickle, or aloof.

The most intense element rule these fiery signs. You may quickly know them from their intensity which shows up in their passions, their ability to be bold and electric charisma. However, fire can heat something or destroy it.

At their worst, fire signs need to be the center of attention and act out in selfish, vain ways. Plus, take note of their quick temper. They will take on those who challenge them, but lots of people will benefit if they use this energy for good.

Earth Signs - Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn

Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn are known for their stability and groundedness, just like the earth. They are also extremely practical, and this makes them excellent accumulators of wealth. However, they appreciate the finer things in life like good food and wine to meet their high sensuality.

Despite their loyalty, earth signs are stubborn and unyielding. Think of the term; it’s my way or the highway. Also, their love for the material can make them lazy and unnecessarily extravagant.
