There are four elements in the universe:fire, water, air, and earth.
When someone says they are an air sign or water sign what they mean is that when they were born the position of the sun at the time of his birth was in one of these categories.
Each one of these elements has specific characteristics that are associated with an individual's behavior.
Fire is aggressive, war-like, energy, enthusiasm, self-reliant, courage, action, passion, restlessness, tempermental, and leadership.
