What does it mean to have many Fire Signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) and Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) in my astrology chart?
Fire + Water: The Planets in your Chart that are in Fire or Water Signs are DRIVEN BY THE EMOTIONS
FIRE SIGNS: ARIES / LEO / SAGITTARIUS
WATER SIGNS: CANCER / SCORPIO / PISCES
What does it mean to have many Fire and Water Signs in your chart? Fire and Water are both elements of the emotional body. FIRE is the outward expression of emotion – passion, drama, intensity and enthusiasm – while WATER is the inner experience of emotion, especially awareness of the impact we have on the feelings of others and their emotional impact on us.
Having more Planets located in the emotional realm (Fire and Water signs) indicates an individual who reaches conclusions, makes decisions and is driven to act more on the basis of their emotions rather than from mental considerations.

ARIES, LEO AND SAGITTARIUS
What are the Fire Signs? Although both are emotionally driven, Fire and Water are opposite components of the EMOTIONAL BODY. Fire is enthusiasm, passion, inspiration and all forms of outward emotional expression. Water represents feelings that we experience deeply and do not often express to others.
Four or more Planets in FIRE Signs indicate a person who has a very passionate nature. They are enthusiastic, dramatic, adventurous, inspirational, eager to experience life, and outwardly excitable. Sometimes, if the Fire is understated, the person may seem almost unemotional. In this case it is the intensity of their presence and expression that others notice.
If there are more Planets in Fire than Water, the person may express emotions in ways that are more fervent and theatrical than what they actually feel inside. For example, they may fly off the handle with: “Why did you leave that light on?!!! when it didn’t really bother them that much.
If you have many Planets in Fire Signs and few in Water, you may inadvertently have others walking on egg shells around you because of your outbursts. You might want to let them know: “Look, I just have a passionate nature. It’s not really that big a deal to me”. The people around you will sense the truth of what you are saying, and can begin to relax and stop resisting your energy.

Which are the WATER SIGNS?
CANCER, SCORPIO AND PISCES
What are the Water Signs? Water people’s emotions run very deep. They are in touch with their own inner feelings and moods, and also tuned in to other’s feelings. Empathy is a strong suit for them.
A person with three or more Planets in WATER Signs is very aware of other’s inner emotional responses, and will go out of their way to not hurt another’s feelings. Since it’s natural to assume that others are the same as we are, Water people tend to think that other people are as aware of – and sensitive to – feelings as they are.
As a result, when someone says something that hurts them, they may imagine that the other person knew that it would hurt them and did it deliberately, and they become upset: “I would never say such a hurtful thing!” However, this is usually not the case. Others are simply LESS AWARE of feelings, and do not automatically understand the impact of their words on others. We all have different strengths in our personalities.
If someone has four or more Planets placed in Water Signs, their sensitivity to personal moods and feelings is pronounced. It’s helpful for these people to be aware that they are much more sensitive in this area than most of those around them.
