Elemental Mix : How understanding your elemental mix can also help you connect better with others

Do you ever find yourself wondering why something that seems like common sense to you just isn’t to the other person? The answer could lie in their elemental mix. The signs of each of the 10 planets in your birth chart will determine your Elemental Mix. These calculations are done by the astrologer. I find this particularly useful in communicating effectively with others.⁣

Each of us speaks a different language and emphasizes different things in our lives because of our Elemental Mix, for example:

Fire elements in astrology - Aries, Leo & Sagittarius

Can we just do it already??

~ Fire

Fire Elements are starters and highly enthusiastic. They’ll inspire others and are highly creative. Within the group, they are more likely to want to get the ball rolling and you’ll find them being one of the most enthusiastic ones to start. They are:

  • Fearlessness
  • Action-oriented
  • Enthusiastic
  • Passionate
  • Impulsive
  • Creative
  • Associated with leadership
  • Self-Confidence

Hmm… I think we need more information and discuss this before we go ahead

~ Air

Air Elements like ideas, concepts and theories. They are fairly detached and therefore can be very objective and rational. They are good connectors of information and communicators. They are:

Water elements in Astrology - Cancer, Scorpio & Pisces

Hmmm. This doesn’t FEEL right. Something is off – they said they would approve, but it seems like they didn’t really mean it.

~ Water

Water Elements use their instincts to feel their way around the world. They notice nuances and subtleties around them and are highly sensitive to their emotions. They are:

  • Intuitive
  • Emotional
  • Instinctive
  • Sensitive
  • Compassionate
  • Self-protective
  • Irrational
  • Reclusive
  • Large emotional range

By knowing this information, it makes it easier for me to be able to connect and communicate with clients or colleagues, because I can now understand what their underlying motivations are, and adjust my perceptions and be a better listener too.
