The twelve zodiac signs are divided into four elements: Fire, Earth, Air and Water. Each element is associated with three zodiac signs which share similar traits and personalities; Aries (Fire), Taurus (Earth), Gemini (Air) & Cancer (Water). This structure helps people better understand their personality traits within their sign groupings.
