Which Element Colors Your Child?
Your child falls into one of these four groups: Fire, Earth, Air and Water. Depending upon which element your child’s sun sign is in will determine the attributes and opportunities that will be available in your child’s life. Other children of the same element would be your child’s best match for a friend during these tender years. In general, Fire and Air are also very compatible with each other, as is Earth with Water. For educators and teachers, I have been keeping record of many teachers who have taken my advice and placed same element children in groups for school work or at play time. They excel and accomplish things easily and effortlessly because they are of like mind and have the same energy to follow through with a particular task or project. There is also less confusion, stress, arguments or hurt feelings because all are working from their particular element’s strengths to get the job done well.
FIRE SIGNS (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) are leaders, take control of situations and need to feel important. They tend to lose interest in goals and dreams as soon as they are bored with them, so it is important to keep a wide variety of activities, hobbies and toys at their disposal. These children would do best being enrolled in any of the sports or activities in which they show an interest; however, be clear that whichever they sign up for must be completed.
EARTH SIGNS (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) like to do detailed work and never like to be in the spotlight. They can sometimes be very temperamental and stubborn; however, this stems from their lack of self-esteem and need for compliments and consistency. Earth signs would do very well being exposed to Rubik’s Cube and other brain expanding activities. They love to figure things out.
AIR SIGNS (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) need lots of books, TV, computers and phones since they are the communication signs and need to be interacting with people all of the time. They also need their own play time and space. They are very intellectual and logical in an out of the box sort of way. Their ideas are original and should be given serious consideration and thought.
WATER SIGNS (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) are the artistic signs which need to express themselves artistically through writing, painting, singing and dancing, etc. They are extremely sensitive and emotional and need structure to be able to pursue their dreams. They are the most compassionate, empathetic and emotional of all the signs and should be handled delicately and lovingly.

ARIES – March 20 – April 18
Your interest in getting out of the house and doing something exciting after being thwarted by the winter becomes a priority. There also seems to be many frustrations and limitations in home life that you wish to handle and change. Relationships are going in a different direction. You want to find people who can reciprocate your generosity and want to start receiving instead of always being the giver. Many karmic lessons may be learned; once you realize that the only thing constant in life is change – you will be in a different mindset to attract new opportunities and embrace the fun.
TAURUS – April 18 – May 19
Your career seems to be doing very well with all of the changes going on around you. Keep planning for your future. Dealing with many issues now keeps your mind racing in many directions. You need to slow down, make a list and follow it. You are too scattered so organize your time so you can think through carefully. Money seems to be an issue so careful budgeting makes sense now as it seems there will be unusual or unexpected expenses in the weeks ahead.
GEMINI – May 20 – June 20
This should be a very spiritual cycle for all Gems who have been having a difficult time in many areas. The eclipses have not been as positive as you would have liked so this is more of a time for planning, organizing, foundation work, changes in thinking processes and attracting new, positive energy. This is a time to study metaphysics and parapsychology as well as take new classes of your choice. Creativity is your way out of this crazy time. Do artwork or photography. Get out and be creative and flexible and by doing that, you will start to change the vibrations around you to a more positive and loving nature.
CANCER – June 21 – July 21
This is a good time for Cancerians to make some positive moves whether it is in business or school. What a great time for many opportunities to be presented to you and the good news is, no matter which opportunity you grab, it will be the right one for you. Adversely, if you don’t grab onto opportunities, they will pass you by and never return. Be prepared for partnership issues if your stubborn side rears its ugly head. You are too kind to let others be harmed in any way, but shield yourself from being emotionally drained. Love issues may be tricky now so just be a good listener and think about your responses before you answer.
LEO – July 22 – August 22
Balance your checkbook! This is a great time to buy what you need and not what you want. You may also want to sell things that are no longer needed on eBay or Craigslist, etc. to get some of the money you need to pay off debt or buy what you currently need. Health improves as you take care of any medical issues with doctor visits and a better diet and exercise program. People are interfering with your goals so some slight agitations occur. Take a yoga class, go to a spa, relax and chill out a little. As usual, you take things much too seriously and you need to just “let it go.” In the scheme of things, is anything that important if it makes you unwell?
VIRGO – August 23 – September 21
Home life can be challenging sometimes. There is a lot going on in your life and you really need to be more determined and adamant than usual to get things done the way you want them done. You need to follow your lists (and not just make them). Once you handle things in this extremely detailed and focused way, things will be much easier. Children and home life may not help you get what you need out of life at the moment, but there is a lot of good intention. You are needed and loved, so if you can’t do everything that you want to do at this time, give it a longer time frame for your dreams and goals to come to fruition.
LIBRA – September 22 – October 22
There are so many obstacles, concerns, issues, limitations and responsibilities that you need to handle and you feel as if you may never get from under all of these obligations in one piece. The good news is “you will!” You may feel somewhat depressed from time to time until you adjust to the fact that this is a transitory feeling. It will be gone before you know it, so just concentrate on your goals and more forward. You can be super sensitive now and feel as if no one understands you. Partnerships can be overwhelming, but you can listen to your partner’s concerns and try to be more patient and all will be fine.
SCORPIO – October 23 – November 21
Love life is interesting now and things seem to be changing in a very positive direction. You can get closer to the one you love and your whole relationship can go to a new level, if you want it to. Children can be involved in helping you make a good life for yourself so give them a chance to see what they have in store for you. Your ambition and drive make you a formidable challenge this month. You know what you want and you are trying to go after it. Career is stable so whatever you do for a living will continue to bring in a salary and keep your finances balanced as long as you don’t go overboard on impulse buying.
SAGITTARIUS – November 22 – December 20
Taking care of your health is very important this month. Health needs to improve; your vitality is down and it may just be that you are trying to accomplish too much and not giving yourself enough rest and time to unwind. If you are concerned about a health issue, go to your healthcare professional for a checkup. You may be anxious about career issues so just try to do your job and be a bit more flexible when it comes to your work. There may be some changes in your workload, so be prepared for it by resting and eating properly. Exercise and a healthy meal plan would be extremely helpful to you now. Try it.
CAPRICORN – December 21 – January 18
Even though life seems very dramatic, things will calm down. No one needs more drama in their lives so it may be time that you release the people who are always draining you and wanting you to help them out without giving you any reciprocal energy in return. You must be strong and learn how to say no. Examples may be by telling them that tonight you are busy, you are on your way out to dinner, you are entertaining friends/family at your home and just ask if you may you call them next week, etc. Even though Pluto is bringing you a tad of drama and trauma into your life, you will be triumphant in moving forward in the way you want to go. If changes come to your workplace, do not fear new opportunities. Welcome them. Love life is also a mystery.
AQUARIUS – January 19 – February 17
Travel plans may be coming together for later in the year. You want to get out of your everyday routine and see exotic places or at the very least, just get away from your current surroundings for a weekend or a few days. This is also a good time to add creativity with the hope of relaxing to your otherwise very crazy life. There will be lots of time for creating works of art, writing down important events in your life and even figuring out what the future has in store for you. There is a new road ahead of you filled with wonder, new beginnings and wonderful possibilities. You will succeed in all that you do this month, if you actually get out and do it.
PISCES – February 18 – March 19
New romance is a possibility as well as continued good luck blessing you. Others find you sexually attractive now so try date more. You feel that you are more attractive and in shape and want to continue with improving yourself on so many levels, mentally, spiritually, emotionally and physically. If you are holding onto a job or relationship just because “it is comfortable,” it is time for you to make a change. Stop living in a comfortable life and take a chance to see how life can help you. Let things go that no longer serve or help you in any way. New beginnings are coming.
