How many elements are there by horoscope and which ones?
Horoscope: signs and elements
Definitely can not answer your question:
The fact is that in the European Zodiac horoscope 12 signs and 4 elements, while
in the Eastern horoscope by year 12 animal rulers and 5 elements.
About each horoscope separately.
European Zodiac Horoscope divides the signs of the zodiac into 4 elemental groups:
1 Element of Fire: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius;
2 Element of Water: Fish, Cancer, Scorpio;
3 Element of Air: Aquarius, Gemini, Libra;
4 Earth element: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn.
In the European Zodiac horoscope, the elements of Fire and Air, as well as Water and Earth, are respectively considered friendly.
Eastern horoscope separates the signs into 5 elements and alternate them somewhat differently:
if the year number ends in 0 or 1, then the element of this year is Metal;
if the year number ends in 2 or 3, then the element of this year is Water;
if the year number ends in 4 or 5, then the element of this year is Wood;
if the year number ends in 6 or 7, then the element of this year is Fire;
if the year number ends in 8 or 9, then the element of this year is Earth.
As you can see, in the Eastern horoscope there are no elements of Air, but, in contrast to the Zodiac horoscope, there are elements of Metal and Wood.
In a word, in horoscopes not entirely as simple as it seems at first glance!
I know only 4 elements - water, fire, earth, air. Each element is attributed its own characteristics of character, behavior, and even illness, not to mention the accompanying stones, animals, plants, etc., and the assumption that, for example, people under the signs of water and fire get along badly with each other.
According to the eastern horoscope there are five elements, water, fire, metal, earth and wood. But in astrology there are four elements, fire (Aries, lion, Sagittarius), water (fish, cancer, scorpion), air (aquarius, twins, scales) and earth (maiden, taurus, ibex).
