Sagittarius’s Element is Fire
Element: 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.
Each element has its own principles.
Qualities of Fire relating to Sagittarius
Modern Day Physics Equivalent to the Fire sign is Plasma
Plasma qualities: Like gas, plasma does not have a definitive shape or volume, but unlike gas, plasmas are electrically conductive, produce magnetic fields and electric currents, and respond to electromagnetic forces. Plasma is the most visible matter in the universe. However, it is also observed on earth on a regular basis in the form of lighting, electric sparks, fluorescent and neon lights, and so on.
Modern interpretation suggests that Fire signs are just that. They burn with physical and/or mental energy. They like to travel and are intrinsically very free and not interested or aware of confines. They catch the attention of others without trying. Their tempers can be notorious. Some fire signs are interested in the essentials, or the essences of things. They understand Air people very well. Earth people can help ground them.
