Aquarius’s Modern Day Equivalent to the Air sign

Equivalent to gas.

For thousands of years, it was believed that everything was made up of a unique combination of the four elemental principles. Today we can translate these into the four fundamental states of matter: Solid, Liquid, Gas, and Plasma. Most people are considered to be a mixture of all four. Personalities and relationships are made up of a balance of all four.

Air’s modern-day physics equivalent of matter to Gas.

Gas qualities: Compressible. Conforms to the shape of its container, but will also expand to fill the container. It has no definitive shape or size. Gas can be converted to plasma either by huge voltage or extremely high temperatures.

Modern interpretation suggests that Air signs are expansive in their thinking. But they can also be challenging to understand. They move freely and can be difficult to pin down. It takes a lot to get them worked up, but they do not do well with cold people. They are simpatico to Fire signs.
