The Fire Signs: Aries, Leo and Sagittarius:

Power, Passion and Purpose

In astrology, all of the zodiac signs are classified as belonging to one of the four elements: fire, earth, air or water. Although the astrological elements are only one small part of the building blocks making up a birth chart, an understanding of each element can add another level of understanding when you’re looking at a natal chart.

Which Zodiac Signs are Fire Signs?

The three fire signs are Aries, Leo and Sagittarius.

What Does the Fire Element Mean in Astrology?

Astrologically, the fire element represents passion, strength, initiative, courage and creativity.

Traditionally, the fire signs are very self-expressive, excitable and usually confident too. They have a sense of spirit and adventure about them and are keen to act and to be involved in life. Fire signs are spontaneous, so they are quick to anger and have quite a temper. However, they are equally quick to forgive and do not bear grudges.

The fire element in astrology is seen as being joyful, vibrant and energetic and fire also rules our creativity. Whatever brings us joy can be represented by the fire element – think of the phrase ‘lighting a fire in your belly’ to get a sense of how the fire element channels and directs enthusiasm, creativity and fun.

To understand elements in astrology, it’s always helpful to refer back to nature. Fire, as you know, can warm gently, heat our lives and light the way. It can also destroy, kill, ravage and scorch. Fire can be all to easily put out or lost when you need it the most, but it can also be incredibly hard to control once it’s raging beyond your reach.

What are the Differences Between the Three Fire Signs?

In astrology, zodiac signs are classified as belonging to an astrological quality or mode as well as an element. The four astrological qualities are cardinal, fixed and mutable. Within each set of three elemental signs, one sign belongs to each quality.

In the case of fire signs, that works out like this:

Aries is a cardinal fire sign.
Leo is a fixed fire sign.
Sagittarius is a mutable fire sign.

Because the three fire signs belong to different astrological qualities, the way in which each of them expresses fire energy is subtly different. You can think of it as each fire sign manifesting fire in a unique way – it’s still fire, but it’s a different fire to the next fire sign. This is what makes astrology such a complex but fascinating subject to learn!

Aries is the first fire sign and also the first cardinal sign – and ‘first’ is an excellent keyword for understanding the whole Aries psyche. Here is fire energy which explodes onto the scene in a split second and overpowers everything else around it. This fire represents a need to win at all costs. For this reason, Aries tends to rush in headfirst, in a sign of either bravery or foolishness, depending. This fire sign can be rather reckless and is also not great at finishing what it starts – cardinal energy likes to start something. Tying up loose ends is another matter entirely.

Leo on the other hand is a fixed fire sign. Here, the fire element burns in a more controlled and directed manner. The Leo personality can often achieve great success through being able to channel their gifts and enthusiasms. Just like the glorious Sun which never burns out, however, Leo’s fixed fire shines bright all the time – and this radiance demands attention and adoration all the time too. Leo’s fire element likes to think it’s the center of everyone’s world – and when it isn’t, self-centered sparks can fly.

Sagittarius, the last of the fire signs, is a mutable fire sign. Here, the fire element isn’t fixed in one place, but instead moves, spreads and dissipates widely, adapting to the circumstances around it. For this reason, Sagittarius people are among the most open-minded in the zodiac, always willing to enjoy, respect and embrace other traditions, faiths and ways of life. All that scattered fire energy, however, can start a wildfire if it’s not careful – and just like wildfire, Sagittarius is a sign which is difficult to contain. Settling down is not really on the agenda for this fiery personality.

How to Balance Fire Energy in Your Birth Chart

Even if your Sun sign is not Aries, Leo or Sagittarius, you probably have some fire in your birth chart – it’s likely that one of the other planets or important chart points is in a fire sign. However, it’s possible to have no fire at all in your chart, or conversely to have too much fire if you have a lot of planets in fire signs.

The abundance – or not – of any element in your chart can also change over time as important transits and astrological progressions take place.

For a rough and ready guide to whether you have enough fire or not in your chart, try making a list of your Sun sign, Ascendant sign, Moon sign and sign of your ruling planet, and note which element each is in. If none of them are in the fire element, it’s possible that you could be lacking in fire. This is only an estimate, however, as to be sure you’d need to look at the full natal chart.

If you’re lacking in the fire element right now, you’ll probably feel lethargic, and not very motivated to get on with your plans.

If on the other hand you’ve been blessed with a bit too much fire, you may feel constantly burned out, on edge or angry.

If you’re lacking fire, here are some simple ideas to bring the magical passion and joy of fire into your life:

· Light candles
· Meditate on a candle flame
· Hold a BBQ
· Build a bonfire
· Sunbathe
· Burn incense
· Use a smudge stick to cleanse your home
· Make patterns with a sparkler
· Use red lamps in your home
· Wear red, orange or yellow clothes
· Watch a fire juggler
· Visit a volcano
· Cook outdoors

If you think you might have too much fire in your chart just now, think about trying out some ideas associated with water, which is an element that can soothe fire:

· Go swimming, especially outdoors or in natural water
· Drink plenty of cool water
· Splash in a few puddles and let your inner kid have a ball
· Watch raindrops running down window panes
· Go outside in a rainstorm and absorb nature’s energy
· Visit the sea and watch the waves come in
· Jump in and out of sprinkler spray

When you harness the true power of the fire element, and experience fire in proper balance with the other astrological elements, you’ll start to feel joy and enthusiasm return to your life – this is the true beauty of this element.

Without a properly balanced element of fire in your chart, your creative potential will struggle to reach its fullest extent – so it’s well worth your while considering how to best bring fire into your life and how to make the most of the fire planets and positions in your natal chart which already exist. Think about what you’ll do with nature’s fire – the possibilities are endless!

    Awesome Amazing Beautiful Fantastic! When I found Kelli Fox it was what I needed to know and read about that I am as a Libra. The positive words of Wisdom that was confirmed. I live in the mountains of Blue Ridge Georgia and God really helped me locate this beautiful home - one level with a very long driveway. I read the testimonial of a man called William K and i was not out looking at the stars which I should being alone with the deer turkeys and bears I am cautious about the night time. However this man had a person born November 14th that is my fathers birthday and so I thought i need to write to you. Thank you so much Kelli Fox for being there for me. I cried when I read all that your web site told me about myself. My home is way up in the mountains and it is amazingly God given wisdom that made me buy it for peace and tranquility. Now I am wondering if its time to go to a place closer to the town since it is a two lane road to get to town. I love the drive to town however when ive got to get to the airport it's 2 hours and then I'm late since I start to hesitate (as a Libra) and then I'm late by an hour at times! Thank you. I love all of your website. The time now 4.16 am early morning. I'm always an early riser! Thank you again Kelli Fox. Many blessings to you.Cached

    I live in Georgia I’ve attended yesterday’s zoom about Mars Retrograde, I opened the compass on my phone went outside around 8:45 -9:00 pm eastern time zone, walked down the driveway, it’s a beautiful driveway with and amazing view of the sky, So I walked down my driveway glancing, at my compass, got to the end of the driveway, I was already walking west, Look again at my compass, looked up and bam, there it was. Blinking I thought it was a plane at first, the sky was clear so I was able to see all the other stars very well, but Mars from where its located was by itself, there wasn’t any other stars around it, it had a bit reddish glow to it that’s how I knew it was Mars, one of the best days of my life, you want to know something cool, my son is a Scorpio Nov 14/2005 words can’t express the feeling I had knowing that I was looking at my sons ruler, I am a Taurus May 19/1986 special night for me.Cached

    Hi there! I am thoroughly enjoying receiving your horoscopes and informative information on how the planets are affecting our everyday lives. To say this year has been so unpredictable is an understatement, but when you explain how the planets are ‘behaving’, it makes much more sense to me. I have known about the spirit world from being a small child and am in fact a registered healer working in my local church helping and teaching as many people as I can. I feel very much the different energies in people who are unknown to me and can sum them up, usually with uncanny accuracy. A gift from God that I cherish and will never abuse.... if I do, I know it will be taken away from me. Thank you again for your insights and please keep them coming. Sending lots of hugs 🤗🤗🤗🤗 to you and yours. 💜💞💜Cached

    I am so incredibly grateful. I have known, and been applying, the incredible insights that astrology offers to my own life, for some time now, but my husband was still doubtful. I don't know that he truly was believing me about the insight offered from Astrology readings. Until last night. I played his and my videos for us, and not only did it validate insight and information I'd been telling him, there were far more tidbits that went even further in depth. That short introduction into the preciseness of legitimate Astrological insight was seriously the last bit of validation that he needed to realize that his lovely wife wasn't raving on about some cockamamy nonsense that 'is so broad and general in nature that it can apply to anyone at any time. Plus, we have been going through an incredible healing period and transformation of selves and his enabled him to begin to understand why he has felt for, protected, loved, and held so tightly onto those who haven't done the same, and he absolutely was not required to accept abuse from anyone because they're blood related. Thank You!!! The professionalism, insight, accuracy, and clarity thus gained from the peeks into our personality types, further cemented our bond with one another, and our understanding that everything that had been occurring was for our, our little family, and ultimately the Collective All In Oneness' highest, greatest good. So again, thank you for sharing your journey and your incredible contribution to the highest good of the Collective All. You, your work, and the insight/direction it helps provide are not only interesting and informative, but very much needed and incredibly appreciated! Thank You!Cached

    I have been listening to Kelli Fox's astrology videos for a few years now (even before astrology.tv started). I was drawn by both her personality and her voice (love Aussie accents), but especially by her astrological insights that always seemed to be spot on. I now watch her daily, weekly and monthly videos on astrology.tv with great anticipation, and have been joining her weekly astrology.tv weekly sessions for the past month, which are very fun and informant. I like the fact that she will go over personal charts of her viewers during these sessions (still waiting for mine, though) and being able to interact with other viewers in a chat room (Kelli loves being distracted by us!). Anyway, I highly recommend signing up for her newsletters and joining her groups. Kelli is the best!Cached

    I really enjoyed the free astrology video! I'm born on the Leo/Virgo cusp (1° Virgo) and I've always said that sometimes I feel like two different people. This video really explained so much of why that is. Most sites just concentrate on the birth sign, with not much, if anything, about the cusp birthdays. I never felt like I was just all Virgo and now I know why - I have so many Leo traits! Thank you for delving more deeply into what being born on this cusp means in my chart. I can't wait to order the full report!Cached
