    By 12andus

    Elements-EA.jpg Elements combination: Earth Air

    Dominant Earth, Air, No Fire, No Water

    Dominant Earth element in your chart gives emphasis to your desire for security. You are most trusting of what you can perceive with your physical senses. You easily attract abundance and resources and may be focused on career and wealth. You are practical and concerned with creating a stable foundation. You act on careful analysis and aren’t rushed into decisions.

    Air as your secondary element helps to balance this energy and keep you from procrastinating or becoming stuck because it adds intellectual and adaptable energy to your personality.

    You can think and analyze your way out of problems that might otherwise cause you to become stagnant. You are social and outgoing though at first you may seem cautious and reserved. You excel in work that requires communication and networking.

    The absence of Fire may result in less motivation and initiative. You are hard working and patient yet may need the influence of others to kick start your motivation. You prefer to be a collaborator rather than a self starter or leader.

    You may have strong feelings about your mission yet you don’t easily assert yourself to others but may instead wait for the right conditions to move toward your goals. You prefer a slow and steady pace and are slow to anger. You prefer intellectual problem solving, logic, communication and understanding rather than dominating others or getting into power struggles.

    It may be difficult for you to focus when things become challenging however. You can have a concrete sense of what is best yet will try to wait for conditions to conform to your standards rather than going out on a limb to try to be a catalyst for change.

    The absence of Water can make you detached from your emotional nature. You are nurturing in a practical sense yet struggle with intimacy, vulnerability and expressing your compassionate side.

    You don’t like messy emotions and prefer to intellectualize than to get involved in emotional situations. Relationships can be a challenge because you are task oriented and overlook the emotional needs of your partners, family or friends.

    Rarity of this elements combination: Extremely rare

    Elements combination: Earth Air Fire

    Dominant Earth, Secondary Air, Tertiary Fire, Absent Water

    Earth is your dominant element and as a result you are practical and concerned with stability and security. The trait you look for most in others is dependability. Regardless of reason, you look to make sure people do what they say they will do.

    You are motivated by the desire to succeed in your career for both financial reasons and also for reasons of creating a legacy. Having something solid and tangible to show for your efforts is important to you. You can be definitive in your thinking as you prefer to break things down into rational, concrete concepts.

    Although you can be an all or nothing person and see things in concrete terms, you do have the benefit of Air as your secondary element. Air gives you an intellectual nature that helps to balance your earthy personality and helps you to expand your beliefs and mindset. You can be rigid at first but with careful examination and patient attention to detail, you become open to philosophical and more abstract ideas.

    You are a straight forward communicator but also a good listener and reasonable judge of character. You believe in giving others a fair chance and you are able to remain mostly objective when dealing with others. You don’t let passions and emotions rattle you or cause you to jump to conclusions.

    You may be creative and artistic though you prefer to channel this energy with a purpose especially if it will make money or add to your financial situation in some way.

    Fire is your third prevalent element and gives ambition and enthusiasm which helps to counter your dominant Earth element. You are susceptible to getting stuck and mulling over the same ground again and again before striking out in a new direction though when you need to start fresh or take a leap of faith, Fire helps you to do this.

    You can be assertive though you prefer to avoid conflict and controversy. If anything you will give the silent treatment or simply become unmoving and unwavering before you let your temper get the better of you.

    Usually however you go from stoic to talkative and can express in logical terms what is bothering you. Rarely will you lose your temper and become aggressive though you know your value and don’t let others take advantage of you as well.

    Water is absent from your chart and this indicates difficulty trusting your intuition. You believe in what you can see, hear, smell, taste and touch and only after this do you trust the deeper workings of your brilliant intellect. Your least trusted source of guidance are your emotions. To you these are impractical, messy and clunky and in your view they don’t add anything of value to your experience.

    Unfortunately, they are part of your human experience and so you may go to great lengths to avoid feeling them or dealing with them. In relationships it can be difficult for you to empathize with others or hold space for their emotions. You may approach relationships in a detached and practical way or work best when you can view a partnership or relationship through the lens of business affiliation.
