Zodiac Signs Elements: Everything in between Fire, Earth, Air and Water Elements
When it comes to zodiac signs, there are several ways to interpret them, you can refer to astrological books, and articles, use tarot cards or even try to relate them with your favorite people. But one of the best ways to understand them is through the 4 types of elements or, simply, categories of zodiac signs. Hmm, what are the 4 types of zodiac signs, you wonder? Well, our world consists of 4 major elements, namely fire, earth, air, and water. Out of these four elements, almost everything about nature is defined and comes into being. So it would best say that these core elements come together to form the natural world. Our bodies, too, are formed by these 4 elements, and the way zodiac signs and their elements help us figure out a personality is by finding which of these elements are dominant in a person. Something like, “Wow, she’s so fierce, her fire element must be dominant”.
Now I know what you’re thinking there are 4 elements and 12 zodiac signs; how do they go together? Let me explain, the 12 zodiac signs are divided into 4 equal parts with 3 zodiac signs in each element. You can also say each of the elements is dominant in 3 of the zodiac signs.
Below we discuss in detail the what, who and why of zodiac signs and their elements.
So let’s start with the fieriest element, as you can figure out by the name, Fire.

FIRE SIGNS ZODIAC: ARIES, LEO and SAGITTARIUS
We’re sure you know fiery is the most commonly used metaphor for strength, enthusiasm, and aggression. The fire sign zodiacs are Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius. All three of whom are known to be filled with enthusiasm and aggression; believe it or not, I’m speaking from personal experience.
- Aries is the first of the 12 zodiac signs, and just like a baby, they’re brilliantly youthful and filled with curious enthusiasm like a young warrior on a battlefield. Oh, by the way, did you know? Aries is ruled by Mars, the God of war, and just like warriors, they’re impulsive, eager to prove themselves, and a fiery personalities.
- Leo is the most stable of fires; they’ve been acquainted with fire for a long time. They are graciously aware of their light and essence and like to be admired for their grace. Leo’s are warm, safe, and loyal; they can always be relied upon. However, they’re quite egocentric, as we can figure the fire signs zodiac can be quite difficult to contain. Part of the reason is why Leo can sometimes be controlling and dominant.
- Sagittarius is a warm, evolving, and welcoming fire; they’re the most outgoing and welcoming people. They love hosting a party and get acquainted with people from all walks of life. They’re pretty generous but also detached because they’re always looking for growth, new adventures, and experiences.
The fire signs can’t be controlled or dominated and are often free and filled with enthusiasm toward growth, adventures, and the ever-burning fire of life.

So that was all about the zodiac sign elements and about their contribution to our lives and nature.
But did you know there’s another brand new zodiac sign? Yes, other than the 12 we just spoke about. What is the zodiac sign called?
What element is the new zodiac sign?
Nothing to worry about, we’re here to make you an astrology genius, and we’ll make sure you’re a great one, so let’s learn about the new zodiac star sign, Ophiuchus.
Ophiuchus is the thirteenth zodiac sign, it is the sign that appears when the sun sets on an evening, and it includes people born between Nov 30th and Dec 17th. The theory behind this new sign is that because the first 12 zodiac signs were found 2000 years ago, the earth’s orbit around the sun has changed, giving birth to this new sign. Some of the reasons why the Ophiuchus zodiac sign is not yet updated in the zodiac signs elements is because 13 is an unlucky number. It would be a problem to split it into the 4 elements that are supposed to be equally distributed. However, if it was to be added to the element group, it would take Sagittarius’ place, and its elements would be, “Drumroll”,… FIRE.
