If someone is a fire sign, you’ll usually know it within minutes of meeting them. Subtlety is absolutely not the forte of these fiery beings. They’re obvious, overt and determined to be the centre of attention at all times.
As an element, fire represents passion, strength and enthusiasm, but by the same token, these qualities can result in impatience, anger and aggression.
You see, we light fires to keep us warm, but if we let the flames become out of control, we get burned. Same can be said for fire signs. They have the ability to set your soul alight or they can leave you with painful burns.

Aries is the firecracker of the Zodiac and everyone who falls under this sign is a certified sass queen.
Being both the ram symbol and the start of the Zodiac wheel, they’re natural-born leaders and extremely stubborn. It’s their way or the highway, baby. That being said, their logic and decision-making skills are absolutely god-tier so you’d be wise to follow their lead. They possess the ambition, self-discipline and focus to accomplish literally any task (and with flare, mind you). They also aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty if need be, which is why they’re so heavily relied upon by the other signs.
They’re amazing motivators and do a great job at lighting a fire under those around them. Their passion and dedication is infectious and watching them set their mind to something and achieving it in record time is an absolute treat to watch and will make you feel like there’s nothing you can’t do. So yeah, they can be bossy, demanding and impatient, but frankly, there’s no other sign I’d rather have leading the way than an Aries. These babes get results, I tell ya.
They don’t beat around the bush, they don’t waffle or hesitate, and they have zero tolerance for bullshit. And while their strong-headed approach can often come across as brash, they mean you no harm – there’s just no stopping an Aries on a roll.

Famous Leos: Barack Obama, Cara Delevingne, Demi Lovato, Jennifer Lopez, Kylie Jenner, Mick Jagger.
Like the lion is the king of the jungle, Leos are the king of the Zodiac. But you don’t need to tell them this – they already know they’re the boss (although it doesn’t hurt because a compliment never goes astray on a Leo). And just like the Sun (Leos’ ruling planet) brings light to the Earth, Leos are a shining ray of sunshine who brings joy and happiness to those around them.
Leos are spicy human beings who are well aware of their beauty, grace, power and the impact they have on the world simply by existing. And because of this, they demand attention wherever they go. Frankly, you’d be a fool not to give them the attention they so desire, both because they’ll throw a fit if they’re not being observed and admired, and because watching them do their thing is a glorious sight to be seen.
Their need to be on top and outshine everyone else gives them a competitive edge, which can be quite intimidating and their determination to succeed by any means necessary makes them dangerous because, well, there’s nothing a Leo won’t do to win. However, if you’re on the same side as a Leo, you’re in with a good chance.
After all, this is Leos’ world, we’re just living in it.

Sagittarius is the explorer of the Zodiac and people who belong to this sign are constantly on a quest to climb new heights, spread their message far and wide, and soak in as much information as they can.
Most people like to describe themselves as independent and free-spirited, but no one best fits this bill than a Sagittarius. Those with this sign are born with an unquenchable thirst for adventure and a hunger for knowledge. They’re intrigued by the idea of the unknown and are determined to find the answers to all of life’s questions.
Because they’ve gathered so much information from their many, many travels, they can often come across as know-it-alls with a low-key arrogant attitude when trying to get their point across. They get so fired up during philosophical discussions, especially, that they can almost appear aggressive when really it’s their unbridled enthusiasm shining through.
Sagittarius folks have a constant fire in their belly and they love to make their mark on the world. When they team their sense of passion and flare with the precision and focus of the archer, they are absolute forces to be reckoned with. Throw a Sagittarian to the wolves and they’ll return leading the pack, having regaled them with yarns of their travels and new philosophical insights.
