Elements: Fire, Earth, Air, Water. The Zodiac is divided into four elements, three signs in each element.
The Fire signs are Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius. The Earth signs are Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn. The Air signs are Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius. The Water signs are Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces.
Each of the signs in their elements share some common qualities, but are still fairly different from each other due to their Modality (Cardinal, Fixed, or Mutable) – I’ll get into Modalities later this month.
Fire Signs tend to be enthusiastic, motivated, ambitious, dynamic, impulsive, passionate, instinctive, hot-tempered, inspiring, and courageous.
Earth signs tend to be methodical, pragmatic, realistic, grounded, traditional, tactile, stubborn, reliable and straight-shooters.
Air signs tend to be flexible, curious, cerebral, verbal, analytical, social, detatched, big-picture thinkers, high-strung, and objective.
Water signs tend to be sensitive, perceptive, emotional, self-protective, “deep”, intuitive, compassionate, nurturing, manipulative, and creative.
How I choose what crystals to use in a customized astrological necklace or bracelet has a lot to do with the balance of elements in the client’s chart. You can have as many as 10 different signs in your chart due to planet placements. Sometimes people can have all four elements represented fairly equally in their charts. Some people can have a preponderance of one or more and could use a little energetic balance.
This necklace and earring set was created for a Capricorn with a lot of Earth and Water signs but very little Air and Fire. I have found in my years of reading birth charts that often people who have a deficiency of certain elements will also have problems with certain chakras that have a lot to do with similar energies. The Throat chakra is all about communication, self-expression, and the courage to speak your emotional truths. Air signs are all about communicating. The stones I choose to add Air energy to the wearer’s energetic field also help heal and balance the Throat Chakra, too. Interesting, right?
This necklace was created for a Pisces with equal amounts of Water and Fire, a little bit more Earth, and hardly any Air. I chose stones to add Air energy and to enhance the other elements. It’s hard to see but I chose an Amethyst as the center stone, which is a great Air stone that can help the Third Eye Chakra for perspective, a “cool head” and big-picture thinking (all Air qualities). Amethyst also enhances Pisces energy since it’s one of the natural birthstones for Pisces (a water sign).
