What Are Astrology Air Signs?

In Astrology, the signs of the zodiac are divided into groups by the four astrology elements: fire, earth, water and air.

The astrology air signs are Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius. These signs embody the air element in pretty unique ways.


Gemini is the sun sign of those born between May 21st to June 20th.

Gemini’s are known to portray the air element through their need for constant stimulation. These signs are the first to take in everything in their environment, with their endless curiosity circulating them from one place to the next, like air.

Their racing minds manifest as quick-wit, and they often have trouble relaxing or slowing down.


Libra is the sun sign of anyone born between September 23rd and October 22nd.

Libra’s tend to embody the element of air through a nonchalant manner. To the outside eye, these are highly composed, calm, and collected individuals.

As the scales of the zodiac, Libras have the ability to see both sides of a situation and will do everything in their power to create a deeper sense of balance.

These signs value love, romance and friendship above all.


Aquarius is the sun sign of those born between January 20th and February 18th.

Aquarius expresses the element of air through a strong and detached perception of the world and everyone living in it.

These signs have the ability to connect with every type of person and concept and they love to share universal knowledge with those they meet.

Traits the Air Signs in Astrology Share

Even though they express themselves in different ways, astrology air signs also share a lot of the same qualities.

The element of air is characterized by mental activity:

  • Thinking
  • Analyzing
  • Learning
  • Sharing

Air represents high intellect and a knack for knowledge. This often manifests as scattered thoughts.

Though air signs may live in their brains and come off to others as ‘air-heads’, they have a great deal of mental activity going on at all times and are much more intelligent than they appear.

Think Paris Hilton, an Aquarius whose entire career was intentionally built off of the ‘air-head’ persona.

Check out this article for a more in depth analysis of the air element.

All astrology air signs are known to have the following qualities:

  • They are eccentric beings with a need for adventure, travel and fun.
  • They tend to be elusive and hard to read.
  • They value logic over emotion, listening to their head more often than their heart.
  • Their endless hunger for knowledge draws them to philosophies and concepts that most would never think about.
  • They are highly free-spirited and require freedom in order to express their individuality.

Since air is constantly moving, an individual with a lot of air placements can lack the structure and stability that they need to progress in life.

Astrology air signs may also struggle with expressing how they truly feel, as they are more emotionally detached and cerebral than others. This lack of emotional stability can manifest as being unpredictable, insensitive, indecisive, and hyperactive.


How & Why to Connect With the Earth Element

Individuals with overactive air energy can learn to balance themselves by connecting to the element of earth.

You can bring the element of earth into your life through the following means...

  • Nature - Going for a stroll in nature will help you connect to the earth element.
  • Music - Listening to percussion and drums can also connect you to the earth element.
  • Food - Eating root vegetables and nuts can also stimulate earth energy.
  • Crystals - You can also use crystals to bring air energy into balance.

There are other ways you can balance air energy, such as yoga, meditation, chakra alignment, and more.
