"...Referring to the concept of basic elements such as Earth, Water, Air, Fire, and Ether, to explain the nature and complexity of all matter, roots in ancient cultures of India, Persia, Tibet, Greece, Babylonia. Chinese culture lists Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water and describes them more like energies, and transitions than material. Ancient Greeks, Buddhism and Hinduism associate the primary elements with different qualities and our five senses. Western astrology uses them in connection with astrological charts and horoscopes. The twelve signs of the zodiac are divided into the four elements: Fire signs are Aries, Leo and Sagittarius, Earth signs are Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn, Air signs are Gemini, Libra and Aquarius, and Water signs are Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces..."
