What are the Air Signs of the Zodiac?

By Lady Saoirse

TL;DR- There are twelve signs of the Zodiac and they are ruled by the elements of Fire, Earth, Air, and Water. The Air Signs are influenced by the element of Air, and they have their own special qualities. Some traits are positive ones, but others function as bad habits they must unlearn to improve. Join Spiritual Blossom as we learn about the Air Signs, their traits, and which signs they are most compatible with in love.


What is an Air Sign?

What are the Air Signs of the Zodiac?

Of the twelve signs of the zodiac, three of them are ruled by the element of Air, which gives them their unique traits. The other elements are Earth, Fire, and Water, but the Air Signs are one-of-a-kind people you won’t forget. Air gives them a desire to use their intellect, and it means that they would prefer to work things out mentally than by having an emotional reaction. They usually say calm and are difficult to shock, that when they do get upset, people are surprised.  They say things tactfully, but don’t have an issue telling somebody off if they feel like they deserve it. They can come across as cold-hearted sometimes, and they are called to do a lot of problem solving, which can leave them feeling unappreciated.


What are Air Traits?

Air Signs are ruled by their intellect and their quick thinking solves problems. They don’t mind helping other people solve problems, but they judge people who they think don’t try hard enough to take care of their own issues. They do what they can to improve themselves, and while some people assume this is a lack of genuineness, Air Signs don’t change who they are. They just change what they do to improve. They are trusted by many people because of their quest for justice. They stand their ground once they have made up their minds and won’t let anybody deter them from doing what they believe is the right thing.

Positive Traits

What are the Air Signs of the Zodiac?

Air Signs create harmony and beauty wherever they go, and they find themselves in the positions of mediators, mentors, counselors, and artists because of these talents. They are intellectual, gravitating toward learning new things often. Some of them do classes regularly even as adults, and their nights and weekends are full of a variety of extracurricular activities. One day they may take up skiing, and six months later will switch to guitar lessons. They love to have new, intellectually stimulating experiences, and they are genuinely interested in understanding the viewpoints of many different people from many different walks of life. They seem to have boundless levels of energy, and they are always up to making plans to go do unique things and go do things they have never experienced before.

They are friends to the underdog and listen to what people who society casts out have to say. They are seekers of justice and want to help make sure things are fair to everybody. They don’t so much seek equality as they seek equity, because equality means everybody has the same things and equity ensures everybody has what they need to make everything fair. They are excellent listeners who give great advice, and people seek them out when they are having problems or just need somebody to vent to.  They like to surround themselves with things that they feel are beautiful, and their concept of beauty can be very different from what most other people’s is. They will patronize outsider artists and listen to non-mainstream music all while decorating in ways that astonish and charm their peers. They are crowd pleasers, and they seem to know almost everybody there is to know. Relationships are what they build their lives around, and they have deep friendships with people who they value as much as they do their family.

Dark Traits

Air Signs might make you think they are perfect, but they are just like everybody else, and they have their own dark side. They tend to make everybody think they have all their ducks in a row and everything in their lives is completely under control. So, people look to them for advice. Air Signs love to give advice when they think it will help somebody out, but sometimes, they have a hard time admitting they don’t have all the answers, and they need to focus on improving their own lives before they focus on being a help guru to everybody else. Even then, they have a bad habit of spreading themselves too thin trying too hard to help too many people. Their worst habit with that is they sometimes allow people into their lives who don’t want help, but just want attention. Once an Air Sign gets sick and tired of somebody who asks for help, but doesn’t want it, the darkest side of an Air Sign comes out, and sometimes, this scares people.

They get mad, and they don’t like being upset. So not only are they upset over what happened, but they are upset that they are experiencing being upset. This makes them twice as upset, and while they had previously been very warm and caring towards somebody, once they feel unappreciated or taken advantage of, they have no problems cutting somebody off forever. This can make people see them as cold or uncaring, and the problem with that is, they care very much, sometimes too much about what happened, and long after they have cut off contact with somebody, they may still say upset. They don’t have a problem chewing somebody out who they feel deserves it, but they don’t want to listen when they are upset. They want to talk, and everybody else listens, and if somebody ”talks back” when they are chewing them out, it makes an Air Sign even more upset.


The Air Signs

The three Air Signs are Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius. Each of them has the qualities Air bestows upon them but they each have their own characteristics as well. From the dual nature of Gemini to the balancing act Libra does all the way to the uniqueness of Aquarians, Air Signs use their powers to communicate and think differently. Geminis are the most social, and Aquarians, while they are just as good at being people pleasers, go within more than Librans or Geminis.

Geminis are born between May 21 and June 20 and their symbol is the Twins. They have a highly changeable nature, and it can seem like they are two different people. One minute, they will be mediating a dispute between their friends, and the next, they can be gossiping about their neighbor. Geminis are complex people whose drive to absorb as much information as possible leads them to have a variety of experiences, and their high energy levels bestowed upon them by their ruling planet Mercury means they love to be on the go, having as many experiences as possible. They absorb all the information they can, and love to share all they learned. They also love bonding with friends on adventures, but they can be emotionally detached, and overly focused on things and experiences, making loved ones feel ignored.

September 22 to October 23 are Libra’s dates. Their symbols are the scales, which represent justice, and balancing all their experiences in life. Librans are always seeking to unite people, and they make wonderful family gathering organizers and events coordinators. They create harmony, and this is partially because they want the world to be a happy place, and partially because chaos and discord upsets them. They are diplomatic and are good at settling disputes and their natural ability to see everybody’s side of the story helps with this. They are very creative, either excelling in the arts, or being good at making things happen, and if they are not creating something, they feel like a part of them is missing. They can be very flirtatious, and don’t mind dating a lot before settling down. Some people may see this as being overly indulgent with lovers, but Libras love beautiful pleasurable things in life, and they enjoy their lovers as well as their friendships on their own terms. They seek to balance work with rest, and not overdo any one experience, but enjoy all aspects of their lives equally.


What are the Air Signs of the Zodiac?

Anytime from January 20 to February 18 is when Aquarians can be born. Their symbol is the water bearer, symbolized in Greek myth by Ganymede, who was so appealing to the god Zeus, he was carried away to stay with the gods forever. Aquarians are just as appealing as the divine water bearer, and it seems like everybody who meets an Aquarian falls instantly in love with them. They are the most creative of the Air Signs. Air gives them the ability to think of things nobody else can, and their unique viewpoint allows them to invent new ways of doing things and earns them the respect and admiration of many. They rarely embrace a mainstream lifestyle, thriving in the worlds they create all on their own. Some people call them weird for this, but they understand that it takes great genius to be so creative. If they get angry and whatever upset them is not resolved to their satisfaction, they can hold a grudge for a long time about it.


Air Signs and Love

Air Signs build their lives around their relationships and make the people who they are involved with their top priority. A lot of people like them and want to be close to them, and while they try to be kind to whoever they meet, they don’t always like everybody who likes them. Air Signs try not to hurt anybody’s feelings, and they sometimes find themselves surrounded by people who annoy them because they don’t want to upset anybody. In friendships, they allow friendly acquaintances, but in romance, they won’t spend time with people who they are not interested in. They can harmonize with all the other element’s signs as long as they keep some things in mind when challenges arise.

Air and Fire

Both Air and Fire Signs love to enjoy new experiences, and they have a lot of fun going places together, experiencing a variety of new things. While Air Signs seek harmony, Fire Signs don’t shy away from conflicts. You might think this would make Fire and Air Signs incompatible, but it actually helps them get along. Fire Signs are not afraid to disagree, and Air Signs don’t mind an intellectual challenge every so often. Air Signs are good at coming up with compromises to make sure everybody is happy, and Fire Signs appreciate good solutions. Fire Signs also respect Air Signs confidence and Air Signs appreciate the fact Fire Signs are not intimidated by them. They can be together for life.

Air and Earth

Earth and Air Signs can butt heads, both struggling to be in charge. If they can put their desire to be the boss aside, however, they can see it is better to be allies with somebody who is as strong willed as they  are.  They are both willing to roll up their sleeves and put in as much work as it takes to accomplish things. To solve their issue with them both wanting to be the boss, all they have to do is think of themselves as equal partners in a team, both sharing the decision making. If these two team up as partners, they can become a force to be reckoned with and will stick by one another no matter what.

Air and Water

Air Signs don’t have an issue sugarcoating the truth, but they don’t like walking on eggshells. Water Signs can feel bowled over by Air Signs truthfulness, and Air Signs don’t like being accused of being mean when they are just trying to be honest. They also try to treat everybody fairly, which sometimes means being impartial and treating everybody the same. Water Signs can interpret this as Air Signs not caring for them as a human being. While this is not what Air Signs intend, they are going to have to take the time out to make sure their Water Signs are treated like they matter. It helps if Water Signs are accepting of the fact that Air Signs must make decisions that affect everybody sometimes and try not to take it personally. These two signs can succeed as friends, lovers, and colleagues all their days if they will be understanding of one another.

Air and Air

Two Air signs harmonize perfectly with one another as long as they don’t let their dark side come between them. They both do what they think is right and won’t let anybody deter them, but sometimes, they have to listen to how this makes other people feel. Being impartial won’t necessarily support the people who you love, and while sometimes things have to be done a certain way, it is still important to tell people who feel ignored during these times that they are more important to you than what is going on. Two Air Signs understand each other on a soul level and can work together to make their relationship as strong as it can be. This can be perfect bliss.


If you are born an Air Sign, your life will be built around creating beautiful experiences, beautiful things, and bringing beauty out in the world that only your unique vision can see. Some people adore Air Signs, and some people fear them, but one thing is for certain- Air Signs will create change and beauty when they come into your life. If you are lucky, you will be one of the people they love!
