Air signs (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius) move constantly, like the wind. Even if the body appears to be still, the mind of an Air Sign is racing from one thing to another. They are generally talkative and tend to be winners in games of Trivial Pursuit. The Airs are gregarious and work to develop their social skills early in life. It is, however, difficult for them to make commitments because they know there are so many possibilities they haven't yet explored. Though Airs have lightening quick mental ability, they struggle in the world of emotions. Ask an Air sign how he feels about an issue and he will speedily rattle off what he thinks. Airs need help in this area and therefore are prone to attract Water Signs who more naturally breathe in emotional pools
