Fire and Air as the most important elements in a birth chart

By 12andus

Elements-EA.jpg Elements combination: Fire Air

Your dominant elemental energy is Fire and this gives you added charge of energy and passion. You are determined, willful, strong and focused. You can have strong opinions and a habit of expressing yourself in ways that are forceful or intense. Others may be intimidated by your direct and assertive personality.

Air is your second dominant element and as in nature, when it comes to your personality Air feeds Fire. Your intellect and communication are used to promote your mission and fuel your passion.

You may be quick to react to new information and you love to expand your mind in search of the truth. Your passionate nature attracts others to you and you love to share ideas and debate with others, though you can be willful and demand that others see things your way eventually.

Without Water and Earth to balance your Fire and Air energy, it can be hard for you to empathize with others. You expect others to conform to your will or to at least present their views in logical ways that you can understand. You have difficulty expressing and sitting with your own emotions and may channel any uncomfortable feelings into a debate or argument, preferring to exert control rather than to appear vulnerable.

You are also likely to try to intellectualize your feelings as a means of avoidance.

You are passionate but struggle with compassion and have high expectations of how people should act. You may be drawn to friends and relationships in an intellectual or theoretical way but it is difficult for you to allow yourself to be intimate because you don’t want to be confined or restricted.

You are intelligent and creative yet you may burn out easily, losing interest in projects and going from one pursuit to the next. You play to win and have low tolerance for compromise. The lack of Earth energy makes it difficult for you to stay the course when patience is needed.

You may keep yourself busy yet find that you aren’t always as productive as you had intended. Experience is more important to you than outcomes and you may look for opportunities to prove your strength and skills even if your methods add little to your financial prospects.

The absence of Earth element can create difficulties when it comes to managing money and assets. You don’t give much thought to practical matters and may become bored by mundane details.

Elements combination: Fire Air Earth

Dominant Fire, Secondary Air, Tertiary Earth, No Water

You have Fire as your dominant element and as a result you are feisty, passionate and courageous. You can be focused and determined and when you want something there is no standing in your way. You can be opinionated and reactive as well and may act first and ask questions later.

Air plays into your fiery nature by fueling your motivation and drive. You seek out new information and this helps you further your desire and motivation. You can be mentally adaptable and versatile and can see things from various perspectives when you slow down your initial reaction just long enough to allow for multiple views to be explored. You are a truth seeker and value intellect and academics.

Earth element factors in to your personality though not in a predominant way. For you, the earthy tendencies of being patient, grounded, consistent and craving material security and success is like a spare tire that you carry with you but only really draw on in emergencies or when needed.

You can slow down and show discretion, you can be practical and detail oriented and you can find value in tradition and structures yet you prefer to go at a faster pace and experience excitement and adventure.

Water is absent from your chart and therefore your biggest obstacle is emotional vulnerability and compassionate connection to others. You are passionate yet you don’t like to delve into deeper emotions. You prefer to keep things controlled, logical and orderly or at the very least you like to show a powerful exterior, proving that you are not easily rattled. It is harder for you to be present for others and hold space for expression of emotion because doing so makes you feel weak and doesn’t translate into any tangible gain. You may not understand how important romance and sentimentality are to others and you may try to stifle your own feelings.
