There are a few distinct lenses through which you can have access to zodiacal knowledge. The most obvious method is to learn about planets, aspects, and houses based on your own narcissistic discoveries through the lens of your own birth chart. This is a perfectly valid route. I’ve completed the task. It’s something I’ve done to myself, my crushes, and even my celebrity crushes. I was ten years old and anxious to figure out how Gerard Way, the lead singer of My Chemical Romance, and I could finally make it work. One of the touchstones of my current astrological understanding was that romantic desperation.
But if I could start over, I’d start with the fundamentals: the ingredients. The 12 zodiac signs are split into four elements in Western astrology: air, water, fire, and earth. Each has its own characteristics and associations, which are included in diverse ways by the three signs an element rules.
You’ll have a good knowledge of every sign if you comprehend the ingredients. This will give you access to the full wheel of the zodiac. The planets in each sign become (kind of) easy to imagine from there. Even compatibility, which we’ll discuss later, becomes more straightforward. Earth and water coexist, fire and air coexist, water extinguishes fire, air hovers above the earth… It’s like a game of Pokmon or Rock, Paper, Scissors on a cosmic scale.
Of course, it was an air sign who first introduced me to this ingenious strategy. Air signs are both communicative and intellectual. They are experts in the ephemeral, or things that do not have a physical shape in our world, and this is especially true of language and knowledge. Our breath is the air element, and it is the most important and unseen function of our bodies. The Chinese zodiac does not recognize air as a traditional element; instead, it is transformed into qi, the ultimate power that pervades everything. The Air, which represents the East on a Wiccan altar, can be symbolized by anything from a feather to incense; the Air is untouchable and immaterial because it has no tangible material form, even in devotion.
Air signals are especially subject to their own personal projections because air is formless and lacks a physical body. Air signs are unrestricted by space and can fly everywhere, from places to individuals; as a result, they’re prone to total imagination. They prefer theory to practice and can become engrossed in continually thinking or talking about something rather than implementing it.
Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius are the three air signs. For the time being, consider each of them to symbolize a distinct stage of emotional and spiritual development Gemini is the first sign of the zodiac calendar, and Aquarius is the last, making it the most mature. So, in Gemini, we have a newborn, naive variation on air; in Libra, we have a teenager who wants to try everything; and in Aquarius, we have a cantankerous, old soul.
The twins are GEMINI. I believe that the things we dislike the most in ourselves are the qualities that zodiac signs have the worst reputations for, and poor Gemini is a constant victim of that unjust slander. In Paprika, one of my favorite movies, a minor character transforms into a villain, splitting into dual heads and rupturing his seam with cerulean butterflies. “I never knew this side of you!” exclaims the heroine, horrified. “I have many sides,” our doppelganger responds, “and that’s what makes me human!”
All of that bullshit about Geminis being two-faced liars is true, but we all do it to some extent. This is code-switching in its purest form. It’s “turning on” for work, having a “phone voice,” and avoiding the topic of your kinky sex life at the dinner table with your Evangelical grandfather. Our identities are transient and in constant motion; Gemini simply embraces this natural duality a little more forcefully and openly than the rest of us.
Gemini is an air sign, so why is it called that?
The four elements (fire, water, earth, and air) are used to identify and characterize the 12 zodiac signs in astrology. Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius are the zodiac’s three air signs, and they are the zodiac’s thinkers, communicators, and doers. They investigate, synthesize, and analyze. They fly through life, never pausing to take a breath. They have a “live and let live” attitude, and their intelligence aids them in making quick decisions. These knuckleheads take the lead with their *brains* (unlike say, water signs, who lead with their hearts).
Because I am an air sign, I am not trying to brag, but air signs are the leaders of society. They have the ability to see circumstances objectively and without emotion clouding their judgment. They may appear cold or even unfeeling, but they do have feelingsthey just prefer to hide them rather than wear them on their sleeves. Ideas, accomplishments, and accurate information are all represented by air signs. They’re obsessive with the small stuff, and they’ll point out every typo. Call an air sign if you need someone to come up with a wonderful concept and then carry it through.
Is Gemini an earth sign or an air sign?
Three zodiac signs make up each astrological element: fire signs Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius; earth signs Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn; air signs Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius; and water signs Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces.
What are the characteristics of air signs?
Air signs are recognized for being expert communicators and for disseminating ideas. They are incredibly intelligent and carry “the winds of change,” but they have their heads in the clouds.
As the twins point out, “When things get stale, air signals give everyone a breath of fresh air. You can’t quite catch them, like the air, and you never know where they’ll dump you once they’ve swept you up. However, it will virtually always be an experience.”
These signs thrive on fascinating discourse, and communication is a common element in both their love and non-romantic relationships, as well as their professional lives. They’re usually bright and funny people who enjoy socializing and don’t want to sit still for lengthy periods of time.
While their free-spirited attitude is bound to keep things exciting, air signs must be careful not to become dispersed, as their “all over the place” energy can leave them feeling ungrounded.
Is it possible for Geminis to fall in love?
Geminis, represented by the twins, are known to be sociable animals who are drawn to those who stimulate their intelligence and fall in love only when they are mentally aroused, according to specialists. They also have a proclivity towards being bored. They can only fall in love rapidly if they meet someone who is intelligent enough to equal them. However, keeping a Gemini in love is difficult, and if they become bored or lose their mental stimulation, they might fall out of love just as soon as they fell in.
Is Gemini a good bed partner?
If you have a Gemini partner, are dating one, or want to sleep with one, there are a few things you should be aware of.
“Gemini is a highly gregarious and fun-loving sun sign,” said numerologist Sidhharrth S Kumaar. As a result, they enjoy experimenting with different positions in bed and keeping things fresh and fun. Every move they make in bed is likely to catch their partners off guard.”
So read on to find out how they like to spend their time between the sheets and what they’re willing to do for you!
What are the things that air signs are drawn to?
Compatibility of the Air Sign with the Fire, Earth, and Water Signs People that are open communicators, versatile, open-minded, honest, appreciative of their alone time and privacy, have a thirst for adventure, and want to have fun are attracted to air signs.
Why are the air signs so aloof?
On the one hand, if this energy is channeled positively, such as through intellectual debate, travel, or passionate conversation, the relationship will not be perceived as dramatic. However, those who prefer to keep things interesting may feel compelled to stir the pot in order to keep themselves and their partner on their toes! When it comes to social contacts, the air signs are the zodiac’s social butterflies and are highly popular. They prefer having a large number of connections rather than a small number of connections in order to satisfy their need for information and experience.
However, because the air signs value their minds so much, they may become emotionally distant as they filter things via their intellect and vision rather than feeling it.
Are air signs the most intelligent?
Every zodiac sign has its own set of beautiful characteristics, whether you’re an assertive Aries or a kind Cancer. These astrological metrics can even forecast your health as well as your romantic compatibility. But which sign has the most brains when it comes to intelligence?
According to astrologists, Aquarius and Scorpio are the smartest zodiac signs, although for very different reasons. The highest levels of analytical intelligence are seen in those born under the sign of Aquarius, as evaluated by cognitive capacity and IQ. Scorpios, on the other hand, have sharper perception; they are the best at judging and comprehending the big picture.
That isn’t to imply that the other signs of the zodiac aren’t intelligent in their own right. According to Neil Crabtree, an astrologist at the Mayo School of Astrology, Geminis and Libras have lots of mental smarts as well. Cancer and Pisces are the most emotionally intelligent zodiac signs, which means they are the best at detecting and reasoning with their own and others’ emotions. Here’s how to boost your emotional intelligence without having to change your zodiac sign.
The earth signs, on the other hand, Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn, show practical wisdom. The fire signs (Aries, Leo, and Sagitarrius) are the most perceptive, making them more likely to take chances and assume leadership roles.
