Air Signs Zodiac
The element of Air is attached to the signs Gemini, Libra and Aquarius. It also rules the Third, Seventh and Eleventh Houses. It is rarefied air which usually surrounds those graced by this Element, as this is the marker of the intellectual. Airy people are smart thinkers and handle abstract reasoning well. They love to analyze, synthesize and probe. Do you have a dilemma? Hand it over to an Air sign and watch them go to work.
Air Signs are also about communication. These individuals want to get the word out, and it’s not likely to be fluff. They are alert, curious and perceptive. The world as seen by an Air sign will be an interesting one, as their analysis and subsequent explanation (hopefully in terms we can understand) will indicate. Those influenced by Air are inventive and clever. They see all sides of the equation and are able to glean the best approach. Balance is important to these airy folk.

So, are Air signers fresh as a summer breeze, or are they howling like the wind? Probably both, depending on when you catch them. While these folks are often calm and collected, they can turn cold if their equilibrium is upset. A word to the wise: There’s little upside in baiting an Air sign.
Another plus with Air is that it manifests itself in a most humane way. Those influenced by Air can truly wear another’s shoes, as it were. They are objective, cooperative and really want to help make a better world. There’s no prejudice with these folks - just a bright and shiny idealism that can accomplish much.
Air Signs are communicative, intellectual, clever and fair. They can blow hot and cold, though, so beware of a chilly draft!
Gemini: May 22 - June 21
Mercury ruled Gemini is our communications specialist. If something involves talking, writing, gesturing, or working hand-to-eye, your Gemini planet will love it. Mercury also rules short trips, so any planet in Gemini is an expert at making their way around the neighborhood in record time. This, in fact, is the sign that’s famous for its incredible lightness of being, the sign that loves variety and new experiences.
Gemini is mutable air, which translates into changing your mind. So, expect your Gemini planet to be chatty, entertaining, and versatile. This sign knows a little bit about everything. Scattered? May be somewhat. But no sign enjoys "just a taste" more. Gemini planets are experts at duality, too. They display at least two distinct sides of their personalities at all times. They’re changeable, even fickle, and wonderfully curious.
Libra: September 23 - October 23
Libra is associated with balance and harmony, but your Libra planets won’t necessarily arrive that way. It’s Libra’s job to restore balance, create harmony, and cooperate with all — not just the easy jobs. Both balance and harmony require an entity to give and take equally. Again, no easy task. Fortunately, your Libra planets are up for the job. No sign is more charming, social, and able to coax the same out of another. Libra is cardinal air, so it wants to start conversations.
Libra planets are experts at behavior that’s pleasing to others. They’re Venus-ruled, so they specialize in manners, courtesy, and small talk. Libra planets fit into any social situation and get along with just about everyone. They don’t want to be alone, and, because they’re gifted with the ability to pacify, they may sell out their own needs or the truth to buy momentary peace and a companion. Their real work is to see both sides of a situation, weigh the options, and keep their inner balance by remaining honest.
Aquarius: January 21 - February 18
This sign is ruled by Uranus, bringer of the unpredictable and head of the department of one never knows. So as wild and crazy a planet as Uranus is, this sign, his envoy, is just about always ready to shock and amaze the masses and to rebel against whatever everyone else is doing. Planets in this sign are into their personal freedom. They insist on creating their own rules, fighting city hall whenever possible, and deliberately breaking tradition.
They adore change, especially of the sudden kind. Abrupt reversals are their specialty, so others often perceive them as erratic, unstable, or unreliable energies. But as changeable as it seems to be, Aquarius is a fixed air sign. When it commits to a cause or to an intellectual ideal, it’s really committed. Aquarian planets are often much better at friendship than love — they value like-minded folk and need to be with kindred spirits to recharge.
