Air (Libra, Aquarius, Gemini)- analytical, curious, thinking, intellectual, social, detached
Air signs tend to be more intellectual, using their minds to observe the world. They can appear detached and aloof because of this. Their strength lies in their flexibility and ability to experience life through many angles of observation and interpretation. They usually excel in communication areas, acting as a catalyst in social situations. They also tend to be curious and are the more global-thinking movers and shakers in the world.
Of the three air signs, Libra is Cardinal, Aquarius is Fixed, and Gemini is Mutable.
