Characteristics of Each Zodiac Sign

The twelve signs are divided into four element groups: air, fire, water and earth. Whichever element your sign lies under greatly influences your characteristics and personality traits. Like these elements, each group must work in sync with each other so that one does not get out of control and to maintain a peaceful balance in life as a whole.

Here is a table showing the signs and their basic defining personality traits, including strengths and weaknesses as well as the other signs that they are most compatible with. (Air signs are shown in purple, fire signs in red, water signs in blue and earth signs in green)
