I’ve been fascinated by four elements of matter for a long time. Ever since I watched the animated tv-shows “Witch” and “Avatar: The Last Airbender”. I used to dream about having the magical power to control one, or all the elements. Even now sometimes I can’t help but imagine how cool that would be.
Later, as I started studying astrology more seriously, I got into the concept of four elements more deeply. Each of them has its unique characteristics, pros and cons, and I truly enjoyed analyzing people, trying to “guess” their element. Most of the time I ended up being successful, because humans’ nature are greatly influenced by their element. And once you understand their essence, you start understanding people, their behavior and problems on a whole, more profound level.
So for this post I decided to do sth new in here. I’m going to present each of the four elements, tell a little about their traits and features, as well as try to convey their aesthetics through photo collages of the pictures, that I’ve taken throughout the years.
Zodiac Signs – Pisces, Cancer, Scorpio
Pros: Water signs are very sensitive, intuitive and artistic. They’re often called the element of emotions. They are great empaths, have good imagination and social skills. Flexibility is one of their main characteristics, water signs tend to find their life path more easily.
Cons: Just like water, these signs are very changeable and indecisive. They can change their minds and decisions being influenced by others. They can lack motivation, be depressive, pessimistic and lazy.
How to gain energy from Water?￼
- go for a swim
- have a long bath or shower
- walk under the rain
Zodiac Signs – Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn￼
Pros: The element of stability. They’re never overwhelmed by emotions and value logical thinking. They’re mature, hardworking and determined. Earth signs are very peaceful, they don’t fall into fights and dramas too easily. They can become very loyal and attached, and devote themselves to their close people:
Cons: The solid matter of earth makes these signs very stubborn and conservative. They don’t like changes and sometimes can sink in a swamp of monotony. They aren’t flexible and easily persuaded.
How to gain energy from Earth?
- plant flowers/herbs
- play with soil
- get crystals
Zodiac Signs – Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Pros: The most charismatic and charming signs. The element of passion. They’re always up for adventures and taking risks, as they are really brave and courageous. Fire signs are very easygoing and fun to be around. Their jolly mood is always infectious.
Cons: Sometimes they can be really arrogant, aggressive, selfish and egoistic, not caring about others’ feelings. They act impulsively without thinking and often make irresponsible decisions. Just like fire they can blow up and later not even realize or remember anything.
How to gain energy from Fire?
- burn a sage
- lit a candle
- sit around a bonfire/fireplace
Zodiac Signs – Aquarius, Gemini, Libra
Pros: Air signs are considered to be the smartest and wisest among all other. They’re the element of intellect. They rely on their logical and rational thinking. They’re natural communicators, orators and leaders. They know how to persuade other and make a change in this world.
Cons: Just like the wind, air signs can be changeable too, can change their minds every other day. They’re very cold and lack emotions. They can dive into their own imagination and thoughts and ghost everyone around. These are the biggest sociopaths.
How to gain energy from Air?
- go sky/star-gazing
- feel the wind
- watch the sunrise/sunset
Very good description of the 4 elements😍
thanks so much ❤️❤️
The zodiac may have been accurate up to the Tower of Babel; it may even have been the reason for a “a tower with its top in the heavens.” However, with the contamination of millennia of empty philosophies and false gods, not to mention the changing patterns of objects in the cosmos, astrology is pretty much just a guessing game.
Further, the reason Father decided to nip the Tower of Babel idea in the bud is because He is looking for people who will rely on Him for understanding of both Him and His creation. He is our Source for life, wisdom and guidance, and He does a much better job than astrology texts. 😉
I agree with you! I don’t even believe in daily horoscopes ( only when they say something very good haha😂),, I just believe in general characterization of zodiac signs and their relationship, as I’ve noticed that it’s mostly true. But I agree, it’s one of those things that’s up to you, whether you want to believe in them or not 😄

Well, like Paul Little wrote, “A thing is true or not whether or not anyone believe it.” ‘Fraid astrology fall into the latter category. 😉
Wonderful photos. Astrology gets so complicated as there is so much to our charts than just sun signs. I am a Leo rising, scorpio ascendant, and have 4 planets in Virgo, and I relate to all three. Generally speaking I have the most challenging time connecting with Aquarius, Gemini and especially Libra people.
thanks a lot! Yes, I know about all the other signs except for the sun one, and they all matter! that’s strange, cause usually fire and air signs get along very well haha 😄
A beautiful post, Annmary. Rich in images and content!
thanks so much! I’m flattered 🥰

Thanks for sharing
thanks a lot! 😄
You welcome ❤️
A wonderful post and I love your photos! I am a water sign and love water and being near water, though I would say Scorpios are complete opposite of changeable. Since you mentioned an animated TV series in your post, Pixar is actually producing a new animated film called “Elemental” where “will follow the journey of the come-to-life four elements, fire, water, earth, and air. All the elements come together to live in one big city”. It is still in a development stage, but I am very excited.
