There are three Air Signs in the Zodiac: Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius. These three signs tend to get along well with each other because of their common values.
This is the quality associated with intellect, reasoning, communication, the handling of information, education, and relationships. Air signs, like the Fire signs with which they are compatible (Fire needs Air to burn; Air is warmed by Fire's heat and presence.) are more abstract in their ambitions and the things they deem important.
They thrive in the realm of ideas, concepts, principles, teaching and learning, reading and writing, conversation and brainstorming.
