We discussed previously the aspects of the four elements in the physical world. Now we will have a short study about attributes of people according to the four elements.
There’s a connection between the attributes of the elements to the people in that category. The Ramak, a kabbalist from the time of the holy Ari, explains that fire is warm and dry, Air/wind is warm and moist, water is moist and cold and earth is cold and dry. They are connected to each other with shared attribute.
The Holy Ari, reveals that the four elements have sub-elements. Fire has fire of fire, air of fire, water of fire and earth of fire and so on in the other elements, 16 in total.
The description below on different Zodiac signs is general. The hand type guide is for quickly recognizing people to be able to communicate with them without creating conflicts.
Fire Signs: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius. People with lots of fire in their chart are very active and involved and “can do” all kinds of things. Those with little fire can’t get started and may need someone to light a fire under them.
Fire hand type: Oblong/rectangle palm and shorter (than palm length) fingers
(Shorter/long fingers means relative to palm length)
Air Signs: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius. People with lots of air are analytical; they are able to resolve and draw conclusions. Those with little air have trouble with abstractions and ideas — getting the “big picture.”
Air hand type: Square palm, longer fingers
Water Signs: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces. People with lots of water are very feeling and “sense”-ative. Those with little water can’t get a feel for things; they run cool.
Water hand type: oblong/rectangle palm, long fingers
Earth Signs: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn. People with lots of earth are very practical. They can see how to do and use things. Those with little earth can’t be objective, aren’t grounded or practical.
Earth hand type: square palm, short fingers
