PART 1 OF A 4 PART SERIES ON UNDERSTANDING THE WAY THE SIGNS COMMUNICATE
LET’S GO! HOW TO COMMUNICATE WITH A DRIVEN FIRE SIGN
We don’t always get along with others for whatever reason. Sometimes our intuition guides us to not communicate whereas other times we want to but don’t always understand how. We are all shaped by our personality as well as experiences. Our emotions and what we let others see about us are also important. However, it is not always easy to interpret other people’s behavior and to know what it takes to get along as well as how to communicate.
Knowing what a person’s astrological sun sign is gives some clue about an individual, but it does not tell the whole story about how the person communicates. Most people would not ask someone they have just met or someone that they work with the finer details of their birth chart.
So, how might you go about knowing how to communicate with someone if you do not know any of their astrological qualities such as sun sign, rising sign and moon sign?
Each sign has traits that if you pay attention and take a mental note of someone’s behavior. After a while, you will begin to recognize what might be in a person’s chart and then be able to use that information to communicate as well as work better with him or her.
There are three fire signs, Aries, Leo and Sagittarius. All have similar qualities; however, the way each communicates impacts their reactions, ability to focus and move forward regardless of the type of relationship. The following will explore communication traits only as they relate to a person’s sun sign which explores the traits a person was born with.
