On the journey that is life, many of us don’t even know that we have a birth chart that can show us the way.
As above, so below, goes the old occult saying and it sums up what Astrology’s all about in a nutshell. By studying the relationship between heavenly bodies and the Earth and its inhabitants, the ancient Egyptians and Babylonians believed they could predict the course of events and of lives.
From these obscure beginnings, the Greeks later developed the foundations of modern Astrology, giving the constellations their names and dividing belt of sky or zodiac in which the planets moved into the 12 star or sun signs.
The most commonly practiced from of Astrology today involves casting a horoscope for the time, date, and place that someone was born. By looking at the positions of the Sun, Moon, and eight planets and the angles they make to one another, an astrologer can describe a person’s character, their potential, and what area of life they can best develop it.
Your birth chart is a blueprint for this incarnation and a knowledge of it can help you to make the most of the opportunities that unfold for you and the challenges that arise. It can provide insights into what drives you, your career and direction in life, your relationships, and destiny awaits you.
Most people would not dream of setting out on a long journey without a map. Yet, on the journey that is life, many of us don’t even know that we have a birth chart that can show us the way.
Four Elements in Astrology
The four elements in astrology are Fire, Earth, Air and Water. Each of the signs of the zodiac falls into one of these four groups.
Everyone’s birth chart is a mixture of the four elements, but one or more will be stronger and exhibit profound influence on our basic character traits, behaviour, emotions, thinking and intuition. This is often manifested in our relationships and careers.
The fire signs of the zodiac are Aries, Leo and Sagittarius. Fire Signs represent the warming, radiating, energising life principle which can manifest as enthusiasm, faith, encouragement, and the drive to express self. Fire individuals are intuitive, energetic, enthusiastic, spontaneous, optimistic and confident. They have confidence and a strong belief in their abilities and their future. Like fire, they can go off easily and quickly go from a small flame to a raging fire. Fire individuals can be emotional, impatient, egocentric and insensitive to the needs and feelings of others. They are driven and get on best with the air signs, whose ideas stimulate their creativity.
Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn are the Earth signs. Earth individuals are solid, grounded and very stable. They react quietly and slowly. Emotionally, they are deeply rooted and slow to change. Like the many mineral compounds that make the earth, earth individuals are multi-faceted; they are practical, realistic, materialistic, nature-loving, sensual and persistent. The earth signs are cautious, conservative and value security and things that last. They are hardworking and work best with the water signs, whose imagination and supportiveness nurture them.
The Air Signs are Gemini, Libra and Aquarius. Air individuals are intellectual, curious, objective, sociable, connected and mentally restless. They get bored easily and in need of constant stimulation. Air individuals can be elusive, uncertain, unpredictable, cold and unfeeling. They apply their energies in very diverse ways. They have a tendency to intellectualise their feelings and expectations. They can get caught up in their thoughts and out of touch with reality. Air people are the thinkers of the zodiac and get on best with the Fire signs, whose strength and positivity inspire them to put their ideas into action.
Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces are the Water signs. Water people are emotional, sensitive, sympathetic, imaginative, creative and private. They can be refreshing, like a cold stream or dark and mysterious as the depths of the ocean. Water is complex and a paradox; it is everywhere and can be almost anything: liquid, solid like ice or evaporate into the air. Water people have a knack for dealing with others; they can see through other people, understand their motives and needs. They are the empaths of the zodiac and get on best with the Earth signs, whose steadiness and solidity ground and comfort them.
