Your sign’s elemental pair is fire and in fact, you have the only fundamental connection with the element. Your special connection with fire gives your personality of a spontaneous flame, which explains why you are such a self-starter. Although fire’s influence also gives you leadership qualities, its main influence can be found in your passion. When you are met with a challenge you feel is worthwhile, your fire burns with fortitude and determination. Embracing fire’s positive influences will be one of your greatest strengths, but be weary of the impatience that plagues all fire signs.
