Who isn't looking for clues about how to get along better with that special guy in their life? Whether you're already in a relationship or just hoping to get closer to someone, knowing his or her Sun Sign can give you some helpful insight into any "off and on" behavior. Learning about the fixed element his sign is associated with can also help you gain a deeper understanding of your love interest's moods.
Fire Signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)
This is a lively element, and the signs associated with it are quite fiery indeed! Your Fire guy runs hot by nature, and when he's in an "up" mood, he's outgoing, expressive, and ready for just about anything. When he's really feeling in the zone, he walks around like he owns the world and everyone else is lucky to be living in it with him. However, these sizzling signs do have an "off" switch, and when they start to burn out, they can become cold quite quickly. Watch for obvious signs that his flame is starting to go out - low energy, insensitivity, and becoming introverted are all indications that his coals need some stoking.
Earth Signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)
Earth Signs are, put simply, down to earth, and their "up" moods are subtle. While they usually practice caution and take a realistic approach to life, you'll be able to tell they're in a good mood when they're a little more willing to open up and show their true appreciation for the value you add to their life. However, they can also be one of the moodiest signs of the Zodiac, so then they're feeling down, you'll know it. Signs that your Earth guy is headed down a dark path include him being suspicious of your every move, being more introverted than usual, and when it comes to material matters, he may even ramp up the greed factor to an intolerable level.
Air Signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)
While they are natural communicators, Air Signs also walk around with their heads in the clouds sometimes, which can make it hard for you to pick up on the subtle vibes they're giving off from way up there. Is your Air man acting animated, talking up a storm, and showing you some affection while you're out in public? These are all good indicators that his mood is soaring. However, if there's a lack of curiosity in what's going on around him, he's requesting alone time, and shows no interest in keeping up with - and telling you about - current events or the latest trends, it's likely that something serious has taken the wind out of his sails.
Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)
The say still waters run deep, and if your man is a Water Sign, you know this to be true. There isn't a lot of surface giddiness going on with these guys, so knowing when he's in a good mood might not be as easy as with some other elements. Deeply sensitive and private, your Water man doesn't want to shout his feelings from the rooftops, but if he's in a good mood, he'll let you know it in his own subtle way. Did he bring you flowers, write you a note, or ask you to tell you all about your day? Yup, he's feeling good. Knowing when he's down in the dumps, unfortunately, is much easier to pick up on. You'll know when he's down because he'll separate himself from you - brooding, pouting, and giving you the cold shoulder until something buoys him back to the surface.
