Though not everyone has what it takes to be a professional artist, for many, creativity still plays an important role in a fulfilling life. Astrology can help you find a fitting medium for self-expression, aligning you with activities that help bring out your inner artist.

Each of the four elements (Earth, Air, Fire, Water) corresponds to certain art forms. Explore how the element associated with your Sun sign can help steer you toward a more creative life!


Air (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)
Air signs like to communicate, so even if you're not a natural writer, the world of the written word can still be an exciting realm for you to explore. Write down in a stream-of-consciousness style whatever pops into your head. Alternately, choose words that have great meaning for you, then use them in a collage, photograph or other art form. And if you're particularly adventurous, a fun way to tap into your creativity might be to read poetry at an open-mic night!

Fire (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)
Fire signs like to move, so dancing, acting and other dynamic activities can help you unleash your creative persona. Since you also love having a rapport with an audience, why not try out for a community theater play, or take an improv or dance class? Though you may not be the star of the show right away, the opportunity to express yourself will likely bring you joy.

Water (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)
Water signs are among the most creative in the zodiac, but also the most private. You prefer to express yourself behind the scenes for your own personal pleasure more than anything else. Music, photography and painting are art forms that come naturally to you, providing you with a creative outlet that doesn't involve too much self-exposure. Through these activities, your natural powers of observation can help you share the beauty you see in the world.

Earth (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)
Earth signs need a creative outlet that has function as well as form. Pursuits such as sewing, cooking and woodworking fulfill your need for creativity while also producing something that's useful; sculpture or pottery are also good options for you. You'll do best with hands-on activities you can enjoy in the comfort of your own home.
