The elemental division is one of the foundations of astrology.
Together with the modalities, they are the building stones and blocks of what we call the Tropical Zodiac.
The 4 elements (Fire, Earth, Air and Water) each represent a quality of being and a state of matter.
Fire signs: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Earth signs: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn
Water signs: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
Air signs: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
Whenever a planet or body changes an element, its background (theme) changes too.
You can't go wrong materializing the elements in all their forms to find out what they mean in our physical world and how they would work out.
What we will do now is delineating Venus, the archetypal planet of love, in the different elements.
However, Venus is just more than the planet of love.
It's also a receptive force, the planet that represents our taste, that which we want to beautify, that which brings harmony and peace into our life, among others.
Fire is always making itself noticeable and when Venus is in Fire it does not come as a surprise that Venus takes the first steps in matters of love.
Because Fire is 'showy', you will see Venus in fire and flame when love knocks at the door.
Venus in Fire radiates warmth and is full of enthusiasm.
It easily gets excited.
Venus in Fire may love an atmosphere that represents its element: candlelight dinners or enjoying a drink or meal in front of a fireplace may bring Venus in Fire in the right mood.
When in love, Venus in Fire becomes very spontaneous.
Venus in Fire loves upbeat events to attend.
It cannot stand passive situations that are found to be too boring.
Venus in the element Fire needs some action and (adventurous and/or outdoorsy) activities.
Earth is the most moderate and modest element of all, and also the most 'heavy.'
It radiates rest and calmness.
The element Earth is the most physical element that you can actually take and keep in your hands.

Silent waters run deep and Venus in the element Water just loves deep emotional and spiritual (soul) connections.
No words needed.
