We would not exist but for water, air, earth, and fire, and
our elemental sign is the very foundation of our astrological nature. As humans,
there is not a day that goes by that we don't use each of these elements. We
drink water or some fluid made from water each day. Obviously, air is
impossible to live without. The earth is both our constant companion and the
source of our food supply. Fire is a great purifier and cleanser of our food, and
we use it to heat our water and our structures. Because our bodies' well-being
is intricately intertwined with the elements, approaching exercise with our
elemental astrology in mind is a perfect way to bring balance to our lives.
Check out these exercises that align with our elemental astrology.
Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces: Water Boot
Camp. First we have water. Water is where everything begins. We live in our
mother's wombs encased in water for the first nine months of our lives. We can
survive for only a short time without it. If you're a Cancer, Scorpio, or
Pisces, you're likely to feel a deep calling to swim or engage in other aquatic
sports. Water exercises assist you in feeling connected to your inner world; you
feel at home in water and find your second skin here. People with water signs
are highly intuitive, deeply feeling, and authentic, and they literally sink
into their inner selves in the water.
Gemini, Libra, Aquarius: Pilates
Any Time. Air is our second element, and that impacts everything social,
thinking, connecting and communicating. Group fitness classes are best for
those with air signs, because you enjoy and gain energy being with others more
than anything. I suggest taking slower-moving group fitness courses like yoga
and floor Pilates. Classes like this will help you focus on your breathing,
getting into your body, and out of that curious and analyzing mind of yours.
Taurus, Virgo and
Earth is our third element and those of you with earth signs tend to push hard,
work hard, and climb high. You can be relentless and very ambitious, pushing
yourselves to an idea of perfection. You're willing to get dirty and sweaty if
it means you can rock a little black dress and look fantastic.
Aries, Leo, Sagittarius: Flywheel
Sport. Our final element is fire. Those with fire signs need to keep life
burning. They need excitement, high energy, and impact workouts that exhaust
them, because in truth their energy is inexhaustible and like fire, it eventually
consumes everything in its path. People with fire signs must work out more than
others, and need to expend energy or they feel sluggish and lethargic. quickly.
