It was interesting to see the way the Avatar character (Avatar – the Last Airbender) has been portrayed in the animated series. The four elements and their connection to human personalities and astrology was a beautiful connect!
Whether we believe in Astrology or not is a separate topic, but most of us would have heard about the different Zodiac signs at least (if not, go with the 12 months of the year).
The four elements of Fire, Earth, Air and Water are portrayed by different characters in the series. Each of them try to stretch the abilities of their natural elements to bend the elements and do miraculous things. Keeping the bending part aside, if we look at the key characteristics of each of the elements below, and compare them with the Zodiac signs, you will see how it relates to each of our personalities as well! Think of yourself, your family and friends and see how these match. For most of my connects, I saw a strong connection and chose to write about it!
