What does it mean to be an Air sign?
Like the element that characterizes them, air signs are people who adapt with great ease to the world around them, and who like to be surrounded and exchange with others. Their development is mainly in the social field, where they excel. Thoughtful and intelligent, these natives like to communicate, by whatever means. Adept par excellence of reasoning and intellect, these personalities are characterized by their flawless logic. However, that being said, they have one main flaw which often holds them back; they do in fact have trouble setting themselves goals and sticking to them, meaning their dreams often go unaccomplished… Air signs are leaders in society. They have the ability to see situations from an intellectual point of view without being disturbed by emotion.
Two characteristics common to Air signs
1. They have an exalted spirit
These folks are born with sharp minds. They are thoughtful and intelligent, and can quickly feel threatened if their opinions or intellectual qualities are questioned. They like to be surrounded with outgoing people and love the idea of exchanging with others. They flourish more than anyone else in the social sphere.
2. Likewise, they enjoy an astonishing lightness
Although they take an interest in many things, these personalities are sometimes said to be a little too superficial and volatile. Air is after all the very symbol of freedom, and while this is the primary quality of these signs, they can also be indecisive, unfocused, and unstable.
What is this element like in love?: They overthink EVERYTHING
The Air signs are not exclusive when it comes to love and are often tempted to be unfaithful. Love is important to them, however these personalities don’t like to be tied down in any aspect of life. They are deep thinkers, yet they have trouble letting their feelings do the talking. Their thoughts govern them, and they analyze every situation, even to the point of questioning people’s motivations. This suspicious behavior means they can therefore let opportunities slip away, especially when it comes to relationships and sex.
With their exacerbated cerebral side, they tend to ask a lot of questions rather than give free rein to desire and feelings, and many people view this as a turn-off. The good news is that these natives are, however, willing to learn in the area of relationships and are not necessarily against commitment. Their partners appreciate their excellent communication skills, humor, and willingness to share.
Missing out on pleasure and love opportunities means these signs struggle to make commitments. Even though love is an area where these three signs want to learn more, they may unfortunately be confronted with a partner who is unable to handle their indecision.
Who has what it takes to seduce an Air sign?
In order to seduce someone born under this element, you have to respect for their need for freedom and let them breathe. Their suitors need to be able to dialogue clearly because Air natives hate cryptic situations. They prefer extraverted people, but especially those who do not complicate life and who focus on the positive side of things.
