The little guide to astrology for dummies: The fire signs

Third chapter of the series “Astrology for dummies”: The signs of fire.

It is now obvious to us that the signs of the zodiac are divided into 4 elements. The signs of fire, earth, air and water; each element having its specific characteristics.

The fire signs are Aries, Leos and Sagittarius. They are known to be explosive and impulsive. Look below to learn more!

fire signs

Fire signs are known for their passion, creativity, spontaneity, and competitive spirit. Inspirational, they always find a way to bring others together through their passions.

With fire signs, it's always a good time and a good time to express ourselves and discuss our moods. Impatient by nature, they are constantly moving forward in order to achieve their goals.

Impulsive, they rarely look back and do not reflect on their past. Their eyes are looking forward, constantly! All three signs are known to be aggressive, vigorous, and passionate. They really use their ambition to update their projects and nothing can stop them!

Fire signs being themselves, they are difficult to control. This is why they are often found in positions of leadership or simply living a life of their own.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac calendar. This is why they are born leaders. Being a cardinal sign, they are impulsive and constantly seek action. Aries tend to act before they think and easily get into trouble that way! They are known for facing challenges head first and they are fiercely competitive.

If you like people who take charge, you'll like Aries. Be careful, they are charming and change their minds very quickly. You have a good chance of being let down without even realizing it.

Aries are great at starting projects. Unfortunately, they aren't as good at seeing it through...

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

Leo is a fixed sign. Which means he is stable, determined and focused on his goals. They have great powers of introspection and therefore the ability to camouflage the traits of their personality that they do not want to share and put forward what they want to brag about. Making sure to reveal only their strengths until their weaknesses are improved.

Leos love to learn and once they are familiar with a concept, they love to share their knowledge with others. They are inspiring, exciting and unafraid to help others on their path to success.

You could call the Lions "pig's head" they are so stubborn. No matter what happens to them, they are unwavering in their beliefs. They are very trusting, rarely questioning themselves and are known to be proud and even a little selfish…even so, the Leo is extremely loyal and you benefit from having one by your side.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius is a mutable fire sign. Which also means that they are very flexible and thoughtful, they are the philosophers of the zodiac! They adopt a “live and let live” attitude which can be perceived as nonchalance. Constantly in search of truth, they feed it with their passionate energy.

Sagittarius is spontaneous and exciting. Explorers, they want to discover the world around us in all its forms. Don't be surprised if Sagittarius talks to you about culture, spirituality and diversity...they think big!

An inspired Sagittarius is capable of anything, it's beautiful to see!

Fire Sign Relationship Compatibility

Since fire signs are very volatile, they usually get along well with their peers or with air signs (such as Gemini, Libra and Aquarius). These two share their outgoing energy and are sure to keep the relationship interesting for both of them since they both need a lot of stimulation.

Fire signs would not be very compatible with water and earth signs, they may be too volatile and impulsive for these signs that need stability, security and gentleness.

Comparing the compatibilities of our sun signs can be a good general indicator of the chemistry that could be in the relationship (whatever its nature), but it will not be 100% effective.

We must remember that our personality is made up of a whole panoply of signs ruled by the planets, so there will be many exceptions! Beware of generalization.

The 4 elements

So what do you think? If you have fire signs around you (or you are yourself), have fun doing the analysis! You will see many of these characteristics.
