In western astrology, it is believed that the universe is formed by the four elements: Earth, Air, Fire, Water. These are the outward manifestations of the true Elements. Each of the four elements contains its own unique properties, which work simultaneously to create one united universe. None of the elements are inherently good or bad, however, each has both positive and negative qualities.
Whether you’re loud or quiet, timid or outgoing, impetuous or logical – your personality is filled with both pros and cons. Nobody is perfect and it is difficult to self-evaluate in order to understand our base emotions and desires. That’s why finding your element is so important. As you read over the qualities associated with each of the four elements, you might have your “A-ha!” moment, or you might feel as though you don’t relate to certain aspects. This is because every person is at a different point in his or her path to developing the human spirit. By finding your element, you’ll be able to better appreciate your own strengths and be more self aware of your weaknesses. This understanding will help you to build better, stronger relationships with those around you. Let your element be a guide to a more intuitive self.
