The Four Elements What are the Four Elements in Western astrology?

According to Western Astrology the four elements reflect the simplest essential parts and principles of which anything consists.

In Western tropical astrology, there are always 12 astrological signs and each of the four elements ( Fire, Earth, Air, Water ) is associated with three signs of the Zodiac. They are always located exactly 120 degrees away from each other along the ecliptic and said to be in trine with one another. Each of the four elements extend the personality traits or temperament of the astrological sign.

The current ruling Western Element is Fire
