Gemini, Libra and Aquarius comprise the three air signs of the zodiac: the twins, the scales and the water bearer, respectively. Gemini season lands between spring and summer, Libra kicks off autumn, and Aquarius season is squarely in the wintertime.
Air Sign Traits
Regardless of the sign itself, all air signs share certain traits — positive and negative.
An in-balance air sign will be "quick minded, quick-witted, intellectual, abstract, rational, logical, conceptual and theoretical," says Aganza. "Air signs tend to also be chatty — communicative, social, friendly and gregarious." Think: social butterflies.
Individuals with air as their ruling element are usually quite curious, with the ability to be objective and impersonal. Whereas water signs can be particularly emotional, signs with more air energy are "dispassionate in order to maintain objectivity," Aganza adds. Air signs bring clarity, clear vision and cleverness. "They're versatile."
Air Sign Struggles
An out-of-balance air sign can be "spacey, ungrounded or insubstantial," says Aganza. If they get too "in their heads," they can also "over think and be nervous." This can go too far into making air signs feel "aloof, distant, removed, unfeeling," (the opposite of water signs).
The gift of gab can also get the best of them. When they're not feeling their best or most "in balance," Aganza says they can veer toward "over intellectualization," and being "overly verbose, nosy and meddlesome (gossiping), and even superficial."
Last things to watch out for if you're air sign dominant: inconsistency, indecision, vacillation and flightiness, says Aganza.
