About This Quiz

In some astrology practices, it is believed that the universe was formed from the four elements. These four elements play major roles in ancient civilizations such as Greece, China, and India. Philosopher Aristotle proposed a fifth element, aether, or quintessence, but we'll leave that out for today! Aristotle also tried to group the elements together by categorizing them as hot/cold or wet/dry. While this makes sense, these basic elements hold even deeper meanings! 

If you look at your zodiac sign, aspects of it include your own basic element. Aries and Leo are associated with fire while Aquarius and Gemini are air. Regardless of if you were born in March or June, which basic element do you connect with?
