The Element of Air in Astrology


     


photoThe elements of Fire, Earth, Air and Water represent four fundamental styles of being which define our core values and attitudes towards life. Each of us has our own individual mix of these four vital forces which makes us the unique person we are. Ideally our elemental make-up would be perfectly balanced, but in reality we often have an excess or deficit of one or more element compared to the rest.

If the majority of the planets in your birth chart are in Air signs – Gemini, Libra or Aquarius – your elemental type is Air. But what exactly does this mean?

The Air Sign Personality

The three Air signs are basically cerebral types with a marked talent for communication. Because their thoughts and decisions are governed primarily by reason and logic, they possess good objectivity and the ability to look at issues without bias, strictly on the basis of facts.

Air types have a liberal, open-minded outlook on life and a gift for understanding and appreciating different individuals and viewpoints. Blessed with outstanding people skills, they thrive on social interaction and lively conversation and debate.

Air signs have an insatiable thirst for learning and make good students. At the same time, their talent for clearly communicating information to others gives them an aptitude for teaching, writing and speaking.

All the Air signs make friends easily, although their detachment means there is always a degree of coolness and distance in their personal relationships. They have some difficulty handling emotions, and are ruled primarily by their head as opposed to their heart.

Excess of Air

When someone has too much Air, they have a tendency to over-intellectualize issues, placing too much emphasis on logical analysis at the expense of emotional and intuitive insights. They may be prone to ‘all talk and no action’.

Lack of Air

No Air, or too little Air, in a person’s make-up makes it hard for them to relate to other people’s perspectives, where these differ from their own. Because communication isn’t their strong point, they may have difficulty expressing their feelings and impressions in a rational, easily understood way.
