You’ll also learn much more about yourself, lessons that are invaluable. We’ve come up with seven tips to help you understand all of the Zodiac signs.
1. Learn the Zodiac based on elements first
It can be hard starting off to look into each sign one by one. Instead, look at them based on their elements first. Each Zodiac sign falls under a different element: Fire, Eart, Water, and Air. There are three signs under each element. The element tells you the general traits of the signs under it. You can use this to start off with basic knowledge and understanding. Once you have this down then you can look at each Zodiac under each element. Fire signs are passionate and energetic, Eart signs are grounded and practical, Water signs are social and intelligent, and Air signs are emotional and sensitive.
2. Learn their strengths and weaknesses
Every sign has different strengths and weaknesses, good and bad qualities. You’ll do well learning these as they give a deeper understanding of the thoughts and actions of the different signs. Ultimately these are the thoughts and actions of yourself and the people around you. For example, based on their element Earth signs are grounded and reliable but they can be stuck in their ways and opinions, and it is very difficult to change them. Fire signs tend to be passionate and lively but sometimes they can be too blunt and controlling. It’s their way or no way.
3. Learn the ways each sign handles problems and conflicts
A great way to understand the zodiac signs is to learn how the signs handle problems and conflicts in their daily lives and relationships with others. This will give you a better understanding of why people respond the way they do and what triggers each one. This can help you to manage your connections with people in a different way. Fire signs can be quick to argue and are overly aggressive when they feel crossed or threatened. Water signs can take things too personally and get caught up in their emotions.
4. Learn the concerns of each sign

6. Learn how to work around personality traits
