It's very common that people tend to marry someone who has the same element as them, be it Fire, Earth, Air or Water. Their kids, then, often share that same elemental drive. But if there are more than two children, there's usually an odd one out. For example, Mom and Pop and two siblings are Fire, but one poor Water sign is all on its own.
Knowing how to pull the family together can be difficult when one is so different from the rest. But it can be done. Here's how!
A Fire family (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) is noisy and impulsive, not subtle. For them, life is always a great adventure. But a lone Water sign (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) will feel trampled mercilessly in a Fire family, so they need special care. An Earth sign (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) will be accused of being dull and unimaginative, though their practical efforts will probably keep the family's show on the road. A singleton Air sign (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) can cope, but the discussions will be conducted at high volume -- and they'll need time to wind down.
An Earth family is comfort-oriented, focused on practical projects and security. A solo Fire baby in this scenario will be called unrealistic, and their flame will be squelched. They need to be valued for their inspiration. A Water sign on its own will feel under-nurtured and will need more snuggle moments. An Air sign won't be a huge problem here, but there needs to be more heart connection all around for them not to drift.
An Air family is the ultimate gabfest, always bright and chatty, though not too good at revealing their deeper feelings. An outsider Water sign will feel stuck in a freezer. Their tender sensitivities will need protection, and everyone will benefit from getting out of their heads. An Earth sign won't miss heartfelt moments but will get irked at all the hot air and no tangible results. A Fire sign flying solo in this group will go their own way -- and find it fun anyway.
Finally, a Water family is a deep pool of feelings -- sometimes tranquil, sometimes stormy. An Air sign on its own won't understand one moment of it, and will start to back off. They need to be heard and not drowned in too much watery emotion. A lone Fire sign will definitely have problems fitting in and will tend to start arguments. They need to be cherished for their directness and their courage. An Earth outsider will be puzzled by the sudden moodiness and irked by hypersensitivities, but they'll bring an island of stability to this family's shifting ocean. Because of this, they should be valued for their steadiness.
