HOROSCOPE

Your sign’s paired element is fire and in fact, you have the only fundamental connection with the element of all the zodiac signs. Your special relationship with fire gives you the initiating and self-starting qualities of a spontaneous flame. Additionally, it is the influence of fire that can be credited with the burning passion that is so heavily intertwined with your being. As you embrace fire’s positive qualities, your passion will burn with even greater fortitude. However, you should be weary of the impatience that plagues all fire zodiac signs.
