Learning and understanding what elements are dominant in our signs, allows us to better understand ourselves, grow spiritually and develop our full potential. Some of the science-only minded people will think this is all pretend. Maybe it is, but maybe there's an element of truth too - in correlation to the universe, the time of our birth and where the sun & moon were located - as we are energy.
The elements are intrinsically neutral and are neither good or bad. Man is the one who activates the element's energies in their character to make them so. There are positive and negative character qualities of each element that man can further develop within himself.
The element of fire. Positive qualities are: courageous, enthusiastic, daring, vigorous, seductive and creative. Negative qualities are: voracious, vindictive, irritable and immoderate.
The element of earth. Positive qualities are: consistent, conscientious, ambitious, careful, resistant, responsible, punctual, cautious, firm, reliable, respectful, matter-of-factness. Negative qualities are: lazy, stuffy, superficial, indifferent, irregular, timid, scornful and cumbersome.

The above chart will help you understand your sun sign (star sign), what most people are familiar with. What most don't know is their moon sign. Where was the moon positioned at the time of birth? There is no night without day. To find out your moon sign, you need more than just your birthday, as the laws of the moon's motion are complicated. You need special tables or programs to do it. If you're interested in finding out what your moon sign is, you'll need your time of birth.
You can delve even deeper and take a look at your birth chart and fully analyze it to get a true read.
