The Element of Fire 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 Fire signs – Aries, Leo, Sagittarius – your elemental type is Fire. But what exactly does this mean?

The Fire Sign Personality

Fire Signs are energetic, adventurous types, filled with great passion and enthusiasm for life. They always need a grand plan or mission to believe in and feel excited about, and to provide an outlet for their strong creativity.

The three Fire Signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) function primarily on gut instincts – ideas or hunches that just ‘come to them’ seemingly out of the blue and often for no logical reason.

Known for their brilliant, lightning-fast flashes of inspiration – but also their impulsiveness – Fire signs possess a visionary kind of mind that is good at grasping the ‘big picture’, but often poor at coming to terms with details.

Fire people tend to have a well developed ego and a marked sense of their own importance in the world. They take a strongly proactive approach to life and instinctively want to take action to make things happen rather than just ‘go with the flow’. By nature, Fire signs are predominantly ‘yang’ – outgoing, competitive and assertive.

Warm-hearted, fun-loving and renowned for their playfulness, the Fire Signs like to make the most of the opportunities that present themselves in life and have a knack for turning everyday events into thrilling and memorable occasions!

Excess of Fire

When someone has too much Fire, they may be excessively preoccupied with themselves and their own goals and projects, to the detriment of others’ desires and feelings.

Lack of Fire

No Fire, or too little Fire, in a person’s make-up can result in low self-esteem and personal confidence, excessive modesty and a lack of dynamism and drive.
