In your element

Each of the 12 horoscope signs belongs to one of the four elements – Air, Water, Fire and Earth.

Knowing which element rules your sign can help you understand more about why you do the things you do.

You know the thing we're talking about, Leo.

The elements can also provide insight into who you get along with best.

For example, despite their contrast both Pisces and Scorpio are water signs, meaning they make excellent friends because basically they're not afraid to cry watching Love Island together.

According to Mystic Meg, the astrological elements represent an essential type of energy that acts in each of us.

To determine which element you are, you need to find the zodiac that falls on your birthday.

Here's a breakdown of each element.

Earth

Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn are all earth signs.

Earth signs are grounded, loyal and no stranger to a bit of bling. They tend to like the good things in life – no Primani for them, thank you very much.

Deeply sensual, earth signs can be, however, wilful and unadaptable.

Basically, if you don't march to the beat of their drum you might have to join a different band.

List of 12 star signs

The traditional dates used by Mystic Meg for each sign are below.

  • Capricorn: December 22 – January 20
  • Aquarius: January 21 – February 18
  • Pisces: February 19 – March 20
  • Aries: March 21 – April 20
  • Taurus: April 21 – May 21
  • Gemini: May 22 – June 21
  • Cancer:  June 22 – July 22
  • Leo: July 23 – August 23
  • Virgo: August 24 – September 22
  • Libra: September 23 – October 23
  • Scorpio: October 24 – November 22
  • Sagittarius: November 23 – December 21

Air

Gemini, Libra and Aquarius are all air signs.

Air is the element of brainy Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius, who will definitely beat you in a game of Candy Crush.

They are great communicators and think with their head rather than with their heart.

On the flip side they can come across as a bit stand-offish and cold.

Unfortunately if anyone's going to ghost you, it'll probably be an Air sign.

Fire

Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are all fire signs.

People born under these zodiacs tend to be impulsive, passionate and spontaneous.

Fire signs are charming and charismatic while also creative and confident. It's little wonder that these signs are often drawn into the entertainment industry to satisfy their craving for adoration.

Fire signs unquestionably need to be the centre of attention and will love you for your compliments even when they're only wearing "this old thing". Yeah right, Leo.

They can sometimes have a quick temper though so if you happen to be a Fire sign try channeling all that passionate energy into something worthwhile rather than turning into Bridezilla. You know who you are.

Water

Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces are all water signs.

People who have these star signs tend to have live somewhere between reality and fantasy.

Water signs feel things very deeply and can make wonderful artists because of their beautiful outlook on life. They are very reliable and sympathetic.

The trouble with their sensitive side is water signs can get easily hurt and they may take things too personally.

They can also highly suspicious. If anyone's going to be going through your phone it'll be a water sign.
