While some of us are happiest following worldly pursuits, others feel very connected the the feelings (energy) that runs through our body, alongside the meanings behind it. The sun sign in astrology tells you 1/12 of your chart, and you might be surprised by the element that actually dominates in you. ♡
You can find out which elements matches you the most by adding the month and date of your birthday (eg: March 20th is 0320, which is 3+2=5, so you get 5), and with that number you've got, refer to the following: Earth is 3, 8; Fire is 4, 6; Air is 2, 5; and Water is 1, 7, 9.
In fact, we carry all four elements (earth, fire, air, water) inside of us. Even though we were born with one of them being the strongest, we might be going through a phase where life is calling us to develop another element that we are not naturally good at. If that feels true to you, you can read details about each element below, and feel it in your heart to decide which element / trait you are most drawn to right now!
how to find your element
When air is your dominant element, it means you are someone who has a lot of good ideas, and sees everyday mundane life with your own unique perspective. You feel most fulfilled when you are exploring knowledge that is beyond the norm, as well as when you are in touch with your intuitive self. You find most ease in stillness, and you are one with the uttermost imagination. Don’t let anyone ridicule your vivid vision, and remember to keep yourself grounded often by hugging a tree or simply immersing yourself in nature.
The energy of air is all about wisdom in the subtle stillness, and the season when air is most active is fall. Air is everywhere, invisible yet essential, and the way we breathe in air, is the same way we absorb inspirations. Air is what fills a space, defines an environment and brings changes as we inhale and exhale. Air is the substance of life, and air can never be obtained in a closed environment. We can never grasp air as it is only meant to be sensed with full attention.

When water is your dominant element, it means you are someone who experiences emotions on a deep level, and feels the emotion of others around you easily. You feel most alive when you get to express your own emotions freely, as well as when you get to connect with others on a deep level. You feel most joy in the flow, and you enjoy losing yourself in the delight of music and movement. Don’t let anyone judge how you feel about things, and remember to not get attached with feelings either, let it pass like the weather.
The energy of water is all about emotion in its constant movement, and the season when water is most active is winter. Water comes in a variety of streams, be it river, waterfall, or the ocean, it is constantly in the flow by nature. When water is limited in a closed space like a pond, it starts to stink. Water is what we are made of, and all the feelings we have as human beings are simply energy in its motion, just like water. It is impossible to take control of water, but we can learn to understand its flow and work in alignment with it.

Don’t let anyone doubt your work in progress, and remember to recharge yourself with activities that inspire flow and rhythm.
The energy of earth is all about birth, nurturing and connection, and the season when earth is most active is spring. We all come from the earth initially and we return to earth after death. Earth is the ground below us, and the birthplace of all things in nature. Roots grow beneath earth, rivers flow in between earth, and fire returns life back into earth. No matter how much things have changed over decades and generations, earth remains as the most tangible reality like eternity.

You feel most connected when you get to speak your love language to someone, as well as spending romantic time with a dear loved one. You love taking actions, making movements and bringing transformations to people and the environment around you. You are naturally a leader with the uttermost charm. Don’t let anyone tell you that you are too much, and remember to cool off and rest when you are feeling exhausted.
The energy of fire is all about passion, desire and love, and the season when fire is most active is summer. Fire starts as a little spark, just like the inspiration inside of our heart, and it can turn into magnificent fireworks in the sky, waking up the burning life force inside of our spirit. We use fire to cook food, to keep us warm, and to heat up a romantic night. Fire can melt ice, tear down walls and transform metals. They always say don’t play with fire, because only the most skillful one can master its infinite power.
