What I Wish Everyone Knew About Elements In The Natal Chart

Hello everyone! Today’s post will be about understanding the basic zodiac elements in our natal charts and how we can harness elements energy in our lives. A key to understanding elements is looking at your natal chart, that’s where the secret of our soul lies. When you master your natal chart, you will 100% master your life. But, how does elements in natal chart work? Let’s find out!

I’m eager to tell you that recently I had a chance to attend a workshop and learnt how to calculate elements in our astrological birth chart. Knowing which elements I’m lacking or which ones are excessive has helped me massively! Let me explain why.

Introduction to Elements in Natal Chart

Firstly, our natal chart consists of planets in signs. For example, you might have Sun in Aquarius, but your Venus might be in Taurus, or your Mars might be in Virgo sign. Every sign has a different element. Aquarius is air, whereas Taurus is Earth energy. When we have a lack of air in our natal chart, we might have problems with being stable in all areas of our lives, since earth energy is all about stability. If we have excessive air energy, we might be talkative, indecisive, impulsive and try to do many things at the same time! ( I have excessive air in my astrological chart!)

Why Understanding These Elements Are Important?

When you comprehend those, you will start to notice some details in your life, which blew my mind when I first noticed in my life! For instance, I have a lack of water in my chart and I learnt this after I purchased a Selenite necklace! ( I was so drawn to it and Selenite is water energy! Wicked!) Also, many of my friends and family members have either Pisces suns or Cancer moons or ascendants in their natal chart. They are actually there to help me with my scarce water energy! Can you believe it???

Some Examples of Elements and Probable Symptoms

Lack of water( Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces): lack of emotions, lack of empathy, too much rationality.

Excessive water(Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces): being too emotional, not being able to think clearly, lack of rationality.

Lack of air( Aquarius, Gemini, Libra): not being able to concentrate on a task, forgetfulness,

Excessive air(Aquarius, Gemini, Libra): Talkativeness, restlessness, ideas floating around, anxiety.

Lack of earth( Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn): problems with money/savings, not feeling like you belong anywhere, rejecting feminine nature.

Excessive earth( Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn):Stubbornness, adherence to conventions, and an inability to see things from a different perspective.

Lack of fire(Aries, Leo, Sagittarius): not being able to take an initiative, feeling stuck, digestive problems. ( I have lack of fire in my chart,too! 😦

Excessive fire(Aries, Leo, Sagittarius): overly confident, can easily experience a burn out, feeling impulsive.

  2. I haven’t looked into the elements in my natal chart, but I should so I can see if I have an excess or a lack of any of the elements.

  5. I lllove all the zodiac thingimajiggs (although not horoscopes), there’s often so much truth in them! In this one “Lack of earth( Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn): problems with money/savings, not feeling like you belong anywhere…” the not belonging anywhere hit home HARD! I’ve moved around Europe for the past 10 years, which has also caused money issues 😀 I love seeing things a bit more clearly through these findings.

  6. 😍 You had me at “elements”. It’s so interesting you decided to talk about them. I thought of the elements in my astral chart when I was recovering an old article last week about healing with the elements. It doesn’t talk about astrology but I thought about how my lack or excess of certain elements might be responsible for liking some more activities than others. I have too much fire and air so my preferred activities to recharge are reaching the top of a mountain and enjoying the view, or sitting next to a fireplace. On another hand, I lack water, and now that I read your article I understand why my emotions are always being tested by others. Loved this, it’s so cool to see how astrology can help us understand ourselves better!

  18. The last time I looked at this in any way was in college. I tried to map my chart and some friends as well. No idea whether or not I was on the right track, but it was interesting and fun at the time. I would like to learn more about myself with regard to my sign and what it all means. I do believe it is telling of who we are.
