Re: Hi everyone anyone good at aspects??!!

Actually, I think elements are really important. To paraphrase Stephen Arroyo, they show what is very real to the individual, and what motivates him/her.

But people with little or none of a particular element normally learn to compensate. For example, I have only one planet in water, and I have tried to develop better powers of observation to help compensate for difficulties in "feeling with" another person. And then the planets themselves have their own qualities. For example, everyone has the watery moon and Neptune in their charts, regardless of how many planets they have in the true water signs.

Missfortune, what you might lack in the air (mental, intellectual) department, you probably make up for by being highly sensitized to other people's feelings.
My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world. Jack Layton, "Letter to Canadians"

I thought we went along paths--but it seems there are no paths. The going itself is the path.
