There are four astrological elements, fire, earth, air and water. The fire signs are Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius. The earth signs are Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn. The air signs are Gemini, Libra and Aquarius. The water signs are Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces.
Traditional astrology will tell you that fire and air mix well as do earth and water. To some extent, this is true. Certainly, a lot of fire signs enjoy having a witty air sign on their arm. And Air signs appreciate the flirty attention of fire signs. Meanwhile, practical earth signs enjoy the pampering and imagination that water signs can offer and in turn, water signs feel comfortable with the stability and understanding that earth signs return.
What about combinations that are less straightforward? Say, Fire and Earth or Air and Water?
Fire and Earth are often compatible because fire likes to have someone practical and solid in their life to help them curb their excesses and remember their appointments. Fire also adores earth’s lustiness. Both Fire and Earth are usually the most faithful elements too. Fire and Water can be a passionate combination because Fire loves Water’s adoration and intensity and Water loves Fire’s blend of excitement and romance.
Air signs and Earth signs are both reasonable and like to look at the facts. This combination can create a meeting of the minds and achieve much in the world. Air is turned on my Earth’s physical nature and Earth is soothed by Air’s lighter approach. Air and Water are less comfortable together. Air is continually fascinated (or irritated!) by the depth and breadth of things that Water cares about. Water likes the way that Air can make them lighten up or see things from a different and often, more realistic perspective.
And, what happens if you mix fire with fire or water with water? These combinations often work best of all. A fire/fire couple will be forever enthralled with the drama of their romance. They may enjoy recounting stories of how they met and all the adventures they have had. They will want to look good for each other or perform for each other. The Earth couple can be a power couple. They will build a home, a family, even perhaps, a business empire. Their sex life usually remains robust. The Air couple never run out of things to talk about and usually has many of the same interests and same friends. These two enjoy socialising. Finally, Water couples can become very cosy and wrapped up in each others lives and families. They are emotionally in tune and enjoy discussing their feelings and looking after each other.
