as i said on you OTHER forum post on this subject, most people have two elements, the first is normally the one you're born under, and the second is the one you feel closest to. while we must strive for balance of all four, but we are drawn to some more than others. i'm born on a transition day so it's fire/earth, as a kid i was closer with fire, but now i'm closer with earth, and i've always been drawn to water, so i'm water/earth. here's the chart:
Aries = Fire Taurus = Earth Gemini = Air Cancer = Water
Leo = Fire Virgo = Earth Libra = Air Scorpio = Water
Sagittarius = Fire Capricorn = Earth Aquarius = Air
Thing is - if we look at the Natal Chart (the diagram which shows us which planets were in which position when we were born, for those who don't know) - there are a multitude of elements, and also what state those elements are in (fixed, cardinal, mutable/fluid) that come into play. We are never just one element for our whole lives, the elements instead may present at different times (ie: alone/in a group, under pressure, playing music).
Further more, we're complex people with more forces at work within us than simply "I'm earth, so I can only be....".
