Sun Sign Temperaments
Each Sun sign asserts an individual approach to life, complete with its own strengths and flaws. Your Sun sign represents how you shine and are seen by others.
As a general understanding:
Fire signs are enthusiastic, energetic, inspiring and spontaneous: yet are also known for being impatient, dominating and insensitive.
Earth signs are grounded, practical, realistic and kinaesthetic; yet can also be unadventurous and overly materialistic.
Air signs are social, relating, connecting and objective, yet are also known for being unfeeling, cool and impersonal.
Water signs are sensitive, intuitive, insightful and healing, yet are also known for their moodiness and hypersensitivity.
Yang elements: Fire and Air – Masculine energy. An active, conscious and expressive energy that demonstrates more extroverted qualities. Apollonian
Yang elements: Earth and Water – Feminine energy. A reflective, instinctive and responsive energy that demonstrates more introverted qualities. Dionysian
