You can’t change the personality traits of your mom or that one relative (you know, THAT one) but understanding their motives will make family meetings somewhat more bearable. Explore your family dynamics from the point of view of astrology and find out why your loved ones are the way they are!
This astrological factor plays a significant role in family dynamics. Signs belonging to certain elements (there are four: water, fire, air, and earth) take on the characteristics of their element, which shapes their personality and the way they act.
The three Fire signs (Leo, Aries, Sagittarius) are passionate about everything they do. They are a source of warmth and light but sometimes their warmth burns. Due to their confidence, they never fail to boost morale and make important changes happen more quickly. If there’s a plan, they’re probably behind it, and you can trust them to put it into action. They are the extroverts of the Zodiac and conquering new ground is their favorite pastime activity. Fire signs can enjoy some drama and their brutal honesty is sometimes a bit too brutal for other signs.
Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn are down-to-earth, modest, and outgoing. They value tradition and need structure and balance in order to feel safe. They are the most conservative signs of the Zodiac and their approach to life is three P’s: practicality, peace, and patience. They dislike surprises and tend to plan everything ahead. One can always rely on them in times of crisis: they are sure to give you both emotional and practical support. Peace is crucial to them so they do their best to create financial stability in order to avoid any kind of drama.
Unlike the earth squad, these signs like change. They’re always shifting and moving. They never lose a chance to evolve in one way or another and often want their loved ones to change and evolve with them – even if they don’t want it. Independent and spontaneous, they hate it when someone tries to restrict their freedom. They are the most intelligent signs of the Zodiac and rely heavily on reason and logic. They always look for something new and exciting to learn, which makes them a bit restless at times. They enjoy the company and meeting new people and make the most of each opportunity to exchange ideas through a long and thoughtful conversation.
Intuitive and dreamy, water signs (Scorpio, Cancer, and Pisces) rely on their sixth sense rather than logic and pay a lot of attention to the feelings and ideas of others. These signs often put other people’s needs and plans ahead of their own. They are extremely aware of what is on your mind, so trying to hide your thoughts from them is virtually impossible: they just KNOW what you’re thinking about. Water signs instinctively know if something is wrong and expect others to be as sensitive to their needs. They express their emotions in a subtle way, though, making it extremely difficult to detect if they’re upset. Truly knowing a water sign is a long process.
Who are compatible?
Air and Fire
These elements tend to click instantly. Both are outgoing and passionate, so this union almost often equals excitement, fun, and lots, lots of adventures.
Earth and Water
These elements complement each other, so the relationship between these signs are always strong and effortless.
Fire and Water
Both these elements are passionate and tend to be somewhat chaotic but similarities end here. Any Fire sign will be confused by the mysterious nature of Water sign while the explosiveness of Fire signs can be exhausting for Water.
Air and Earth
Practical Earth signs can have a hard time dealing with unpredictability and constant change of Air signs, so the union between these two often fails to work.
Fire and Earth
Earth signs hate chaos, so building a healthy relationship with a Fire sign is unlikely for them. Fire’s explosive attitude is at odds with Earth’s practical nature.
Air and Water
Unions between these two spell a lot of effort: Air signs are verbal and rely on logic while Water signs trust their sixth sense.
