and Uranus are
types are quick, restless and mentally active. Easily bored,
they love games and new ways of addressing situations. Their
strongest talent is the ability to reason and think clearly
and objectively. Air signs excel at the abstract and are good
at math and science. They are also good communicators often
becoming teachers, writers, salesmen, counselors, and lawyers.
emphasis in a chart makes a person likeable and able to create
a favorable impression. They are willing to make compromises
but usually remain true to their ideals. What air signs give
away is not what they consider important.
CHALLENGES OF TOO MUCH AIR
in a natal chart are insensitivity to their own feelings and
to those of others. The mind is over-emphasized and the emotions
are undervalued or not acknowledged.
LACK OF AIR in a natal chart can mean an inability to think
reasonably or clearly without effort. There may be a lack of
objectivity or an inability to see things from the other person's
point of view or a lack of skills in communication and social
element of air represents the mental and social realms. Air
moves horizontally across the surface and with great speed,
forming connections between all that it encounters. Air signs
are the most comfortable in the realm of abstract ideas and
concepts, symbols, and communication.
signs are the most objective, and are capable of having the
greatest amount of perspective of all the signs. The element
of air is a member of the "masculine" polarity and
is therefore more extroverted and active, and operates on the
conscious, external level. All the air signs are double signs,
rooted in duality and able to understand and appreciate all
sides of an issue simultaneously. Air signs are also fundamentally
concerned with relationships and understanding our place in
the universe. Gemini
relates the individual to his or her environment; Libra
relates the individual to other individuals; and Aquarius
relates the individual to society.
air is the element that relates to the mental plane, the element
of air is rational and logical. This also means that air signs
are not very comfortable with emotions in general, and with
intense emotions in particular. Air signs will often try to
distance themselves from emotions and retreat to the mental,
abstract realms where they are the most comfortable. Remember,
air moves along the surface; it does not like to go too deep.
with a strong emphasis in air often have extremely vivid imaginations.
They are so attuned to the energies of the mental plane that
they are able to discover new ideas and concepts, and build
on old ones by discovering new connections or different perspectives.
While air signs are full of wonderful ideas, they are not successful
at actually implementing these ideas. Air signs are thinkers,
not doers -- they leave the implementation of their ideas to
the earth signs.
signs recharge through social and mental activity, but also
through direct experience of air. This can include everything
from deep breathing, to kite flying, to riding a motorcycle
or roller coaster and feeling the rush of the wind. Air signs
enjoy abstract challenges, and can energize through working
puzzles and riddles, through research or debate, or simply by
socializing with friends and meeting new people.
