What happens when you lack an element in your natal chart?

When a baby is born, he or she is the composite of planets. Now, you may have a good idea about your star sign, but what you might not be aware of is that each of the star sign has an element governing them. There are four elements, and they are fire, earth, air, and water. If you take a look at your natal chart, you will see that your planets are influenced by an element. Let’s assume that your sign has the fire element, meaning you are Aires, or Leo, or Sagittarius, it means that you are highly enthusiastic. You are prone to take drastic steps without really thinking about the actual consequences.

Now, every star sign should have a balance between all the elements, meaning there should be a harmony between earth, air, fire, and water. If you lack any one of the elements, you will notice two significant behavioral habits. One is the blind spot, and the second is overcompensation. Let’s give you a simple example. You are preparing a nice casserole, but you have added a lot of salt, what will happen then? It will become inedible. Now, picture another example, where you have made an apple pie, but then you have forgotten to add sugar. The cake will taste bland, or rather flavorless.

When you lack one of the four elements, you will notice two dominant behavior traits, as we said, bling spot and overcompensation.

Blind spot: This is where a person is completely unaware of his behavior. You might be compassionate, you have the zeal to try new things, you think out of the box, but you are never grounded, this is when you have a blind spot.

Overcompensation: You are overcompensated because of the missing element, which will yet again create some unintentional disturbances.

Each element has certain qualities, take a look below.

Earth: Sensation.

Air: Thinker.

Fire: Action.

Water: Feeling.

Now, let’s explain about the behavioral characteristics when one of the elements goes missing.
