The element of air is the life-energy which is associated with breath and life itself. In the Zodiac element of air is represented through Gemini, Libra & Aquarius.
The air signs focus their energy on specific ideas, and – by concentrating on these ideas – ensure that eventually, they will materialize. They are usually playing an important part in the actualization and creation of social ideas, which can touch the lives of society. However, they may sometimes be accused of being impractical dreamers. If air sign overvalues intellect it can become difficult for them to live in our physical world.
Air signs usually put an emphasis on theory and ideas, concepts in life. They can easily express their thoughts and think in abstract form.
