The Air Signs: Gemini, Libra and Aquarius

The signs can be divided into Triplicities, that’s groups of three, also known as Elements.

Gemini, Libra and Aquarius make up the Air signs.

Air is abstract. People with a lot of air in their charts tend to intellectualize. I don’t mean they sit around with pipes and patched jackets talking about literature, (well, some of them do.) I mean they tend to invite things into the mental space and interact with them there. They like a good think.

Each Air sign represents a different type of intelligence.

Gemini represents factual intelligence. Most Geminis have been told they should go on Jeopardy. They know more random facts than a crate of snapple. They enjoy gathering and dispersing information in no particular order.

Libra represents aesthetic intelligence. Libra loves color, shape, form, music, literature, dance, and refined culture. Beauty is truth and they live their lives in pursuit of that truth. And if that pursuit takes them into nude modeling, so be it.

Aquarius represents innovative intelligence. Aquarius already lives in the future. The rest of us are behind. There is a tendency to sigh at the world for not inventing things they assume should already exist. They will gladly tell you all about it so you can make one.

What about you? Do you have a little bit of air? Or a lotta bit of air? Where oh where is your air?

  1. “Aquarius represents innovative intelligence. Aquarius already lives in the future. The rest of us are behind. There is a tendency to sigh at the world for not inventing things they assume should already exist. They will gladly tell you all about it so you can make one.”

    Nota, my one and only air placement, not counting BML, is Saturn in Aqua… One of my laments? Where is my Jetson Car???

    Also, I’ve had no less than a dozen ideas of mine get “borrowed” by others… So, yeah, I relate…

    I’m mostly Earth with lots of fire and a touch of water… Low on air though. I think it’s ironic that I have asthma.

  2. “I don’t mean they sit around with pipes and patched jackets talking about literature”

    Okay, now I’m convinced my Dad is an Aquarius ASC:)

    Air Houses: 2/6/10. My chart ruler is in my 6th House, 10th House is where my NN is, but 2nd House is empty.

  3. @TheLioness- me too!

    Ohman. I feel like an honorary Libra: Moon, Mars, Saturn, Pluto, Vertex and Pallas!

    Venus and P. Fort. in Aquarius.

    With all that air and a Sag. Sun, I’m like the kid who’s grounded, stuck in the chair, but holding on and impatiently rocking it at the same time. ADD should be my initials.

    It was fun exploring how much air I’ve got. Thanks, Nota! Always such great posts ; )

  4. Gemini Moon, Libra Rising, Neptune, Aquarius Mars.
    Thank God cuz aside from Pluto Leo, everything else is in water. My emotions can be overwhelming and my air lifts me up and away so I can look at things realistically.

  5. I’m an airhead..
    Sun, Mars, Uranus and Pluto in Libra then Saturn and IC in Gemini and Aquarius Rising.

    what you say about the mental level is true, i have to coax myself out of it but that makes me deal with my water and i don’t like it. I have better control over my mental than my emotional.

    On a mental level I can sort of remain detached yet absorb and analyze..yanno?

    And i’m pretty sure that all that air is closely connected to my crazy extreme claustrophobia…probably

  6. Apart from an 11th house Sun plus Mercury, Venus and MC in Aquarius I also have a heap of those ‘additional objects’ there too.
    Chiron, Lilith, Ceres, Vesta and Pholus are also in Aquarius.
    Pars Fortunae, Pallas and Juno are in the 11th house.
    Ixion and Quaoa are in Libra.
    True Node and Neptune are in 7th the house.
    Orcus is in the 3rd house.
    I’d say I have a small amount of air in my chart – lmao. Actually, I’m grateful all my Aquarius planets are in the 10th house. I think that keeps me grounded but I’d love love love a Jetson Car!!! I don’t often think of things that need to be invented but I’m always appreciative when other people invent new things.

  7. whew, loads of air here !

    merc – libra (in the 11th)
    sun – libra (11th)
    moon – aquarius
    jupiter – aquarius
    third house neptune (I write about art, not half bad at singing either)
    you may understand why I am very fond if my saturn dominated scorpio acendant…
    can you say intellectualizer ?

  8. Sun, Mars, Gemini, (6th) Pluto, Saturn, Libra (11th) no wonder it seems like I’ve got a lot to learn from relationships!!

  9. No personal planets in air
    but Uranus and Jupiter in Libra, not conjunct
    also Gemini midheaven
    and then on Donna C’s AIR quiz, I scored higher that I thought I would because of houses and I forget what else and it made sense to me… in terms of… airy people living in the world of ideas…
    (creating a false binary here of air vs earth, thought vs manifestation)

  10. Awesome post Nota. Loving all the new writers around here. Such a great team.

    I have quite a bit of air all of it in the sign libra. I love art, fashion and music and always thinking about relationships and how people relate. I can my days just sitting and thinking about all these things, daydreaming.

  11. 1st house/Ascendant Gemini

    Thinks way too much about stuff…

    Mom, I love you…

    Thanks for this post!

  12. I often say that I wish I could get paid to give people ideas, about anything and everything. Mars in gemini in the 10th trine saturn and mercury in capricorn. And airy sun and moon to boot.

  13. I have Air Ascendant 29′,Air Pluto (singleton)4th house Mercury quincunx Ascendant 5th house Koch/Equal or 6th house Placidus

    I feel like I’m both the descriptions below,which seems odd,but the facts I have aren’t Jeopardy worthy and/or interesting to most people (astrology)and most of them I don’t get correct and/or I forget and I only remember when something provides a trigger. I tend to be forgetful. People often tell me not to “nuke” things though even though I tend to be mentally scattered and very indecisive. I’m told I’m really smart,though I don’t think I am.

    Gemini represents factual intelligence. Most Geminis have been told they should go on Jeopardy. They know more random facts than a crate of snapple. They enjoy gathering and dispersing information in no particular order.

    Libra represents aesthetic intelligence. Libra loves color, shape, form, music, literature, dance, and refined culture. Beauty is truth and they live their lives in pursuit of that truth. And if that pursuit takes them into nude modeling, so be it.

  14. I have 4 planets in gemini..sun,mercury, venus and mars..and my moon sign is libra..Im very airy. My motto is I THINK..love it!

  15. I have s**tloads of Air and I intellectualize like a mo**erfu**er. : D Sometimes I intellectualize so much I come across as pretentious and downright arrogant, when in fact I don’t really mean to be either of the two.
    Sun, Moon, Mercury and Jupiter are all in Air, with Libra having the most footing. I AM aesthetics.

  16. I love the description of air signs here: “They tend to invite things into the mental spcae and interact with them there.” I can relate to this far more than any other description I’ve read so far. I only have one planet, my sun in air, Aquarius. I sometimes wish I could take the concepts in my head and put them in the air in front of me so I can manipulate and move them around (I guess that’s all my earth – I want to touch them). But think about it: your thoughts in the air all around you so you can mold them, color them, move them….! Scary cool.
