These 12 signs also come under one of the four elements; Fire, Earth, Air and Water. These elements symbolise an essential type of energy that acts in each of us. Astrology's main aim is to help us focus these energies to understand our positive traits and realise our potential. The four elements help explain the unique personality types associated with astrological signs. The four zodiac elements display profound influence on essential character traits, emotions, behaviour and thinking, which is why they are so important when it comes to compatibility!
Fire and air signs are often most compatible with each other, whether that means Fire with Fire, Fire with Air or Air with Air. When two Fire signs combine, it is explosive (in a healthy way). They have a mutual belief that actions speak a lot louder than words. Fire fascinates Air, and they complement each other very well. The Air sign appreciates the power and "go-getter" attitude of the Fire sign. The Fire sign enjoys the free-flowing qualities and adaptability of the Air sign. An Air sign with another Air sign is all about the assemblage of the minds. Both sides linking to the Air element will talk about anything as they are both intellectually curious. Air and Fire elements are the most pleasant, making it a party when they are together.
On the other side of the coin, Earth and Water signs are usually a fantastic match as they have similar traits and characteristics. An Earth sign flourishes with another Earth sign because they share the same family and business values. The stability-seeking Earth signs love to plan for the future, so it is an honest, family-orientated relationship when they are together. Earth and Water signs both understand each other's need for security and balance within the relationship. Water signs are intensely emotional, and Earth signs are practical and sensible, making them the "parent" of the friend group. Water and Earth signs thrive together because both are cautious and very serious, so they work harder at the relationship. When two Water signs come together, the partnership will be a sympathetic and emotional union. Water signs pride themselves on their creativity and nurturing characteristics, which their Water sign partner will understand. They both act on emotion rather than logic. They are the definition of wearing your heart on your sleeve.
