Free Astrology Course - Elemental Groups



Once you understand the basic signs, it's time to see how they relate to each other and fall into groups or categories.

First, there are four elemental groups that signs fall into - the fire signs, the earth signs, the air signs and the water signs. Starting with Aries, each subsequent sign is from the next group in order, then it starts again with fire.

Fire Signs
Fire is creative and helpful, and fire is also destructive. The signs associated with fire are full of passion and energy. They love change and creativity. They don't mind starting anew if it means things can be better and different.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
