The Astro Twins

Do you like it hot at home or prefer cool comfort? Your zodiac sign can tell a lot about the energy you give off and what energy you like to use in your life, celebrity astrologers The AstroTwins explain.

Fire, Earth, Air & Water: What type of sign are you?

The zodiac consists of 12 signs, based on your date of birth. These signs are divided into four elements: fire, earth, air and water. The elements determine your energetic speed, for example, are you a starter or a finisher, a talker or a thinker? Your rhythm and pace can be influenced by your element.

For example, the sensitive earth and water signs tend to be more nurturing and traditional, often preferring a cooler or more temperate climate since they don’t use up energy as quickly. By contrast, the action-driven fire and air signs can be found seeking novelty and adventure. As a result, they are quicker to burn through mental and physical energy.

Fire signs

Much like their name signifies fire signs love to turn up the temperature. The blazing Sun doesn’t daunt them, although they may crash in front of the air con between escapades. Dry heat suits this sign more than damp or moist climates.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

As the zodiac’s first sign, Aries are always taking risks and leaping without looking. They burn through energy faster than any sign and rarely sit still—at least, not without multi-tasking. These trendsetting signs are often the first to have the latest electronic gadget, so a power board with multiple outlets will be their life saver, charging their gazillion on-the-go gadgets.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Charismatic Leo has endless energy and adores entertaining. This sign keeps on going long after others crash. Ruled by the Sun, which powers our solar system, it’s no wonder Leo’s love to be at the center of everything. They’ll be no need to turn on the air con when they’re in party mode: Leos love the heat of a crowded room packed with revelers. 

Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Travel-loving Sagittarius loves open spaces; this sign feels happiest outdoors. Sagittarians might have the lowest power bills of any sign- simply because they’re never home! However, when they are, restless Sags move from room to room, leaving the lights and power on (oops!). They love to learn, and as a result they may use more electricity reading their stacks of books and magazines.

Earth signs

Rooted earth signs work hard and love to relax in supreme comfort. Given the choice, they prefer cool, moist air (so tend to love Autumnal seasons) ,over hot and dry climates. Their energy usage and output tends to be steady and predictable. So options such as Predictable Plan are perfect.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Ambience is everything to sensual Taurus, the sign that is most sensitive to light and noise. This visual sign should set lamps on dimmers for that perfect atmosphere. They love music pumping through their surround-sound system and watch movies on their giant home theatre systems. Taureans should set devices on timers since they tend to fall asleep with the TV on.

Virgo (Aug 23 – Sept 22)

Pass the energy-efficient bulbs and slide on the solar panels. Eco-friendly Virgos are conscious of their carbon footprint and take pains to protect the planet. Alas, they’re also hypersensitive to aesthetics, so they’ll hunt for flattering LED lights or blackout curtains that match their tasteful décor.

Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Ambitious Capricorns drive themselves hard, but after hours, they’ll lounge like champions. A cool, comfortable cave (preferably low-lit) becomes this sign’s sanctuary. Summer siestas mean zoning out to a big-screen TV or in a centrally air-conditioned den. In the winter, they’re the first to light the fireplace or install radiant-heat floors.

Air signs 

Easy and breezy – that’s how the air signs like to feel. Sunny and warm climates with consistent temperatures suit these signs best – especially if they can feel the wind on their skin while walking, sailing, skiing or golfing. They prefer fresh air to artificial cooling.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Curious Geminis love their tech and electronic gadgets. They can be easily-bored and crave variety, so they may switch from one gadget to the next, or buy the latest shiny toy or appliance on a whim. Their homes could be stocked with trendy kitchen gadgets and homewares so a solid power supply is a must. 

Libra (Sept 23 – Oct 22)

Libras need balance so the temperature always has to be ‘just right’. As the most delicate of the air signs, they are sensitive to drafts and chills, so Libra’s home should be properly insulated (double-pane windows, anyone?). As the sign of beauty, they need perfect lighting in their dressing areas, too.

Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

Social Aquarians love to host and bring people together and much of their power will be used to light the communal areas of their homes. This futuristic sign is an early adopter of energy-saving innovations or “smart” technology that controls the temperature, alarms and power. They may also be the first to invest in new solar technologies, such as the Tesla Powerwall battery.

Water signs

Sensitive water signs don’t like the discomfort of being too hot, which is why they love to live near water – beaches and swimming pools are some their favorite spots. Or they’ll gravitate to cooler towns with lakes and rivers as the main vista.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Comfort is king to the zodiac’s homebody sign. You may keep the temperature lowered just to have an excuse to throw on your favourite fuzzy slippers and sweater or to wrap yourself in a blanket. The kitchen is your power centre, whether you’re a gourmet chef or just there to raid the fridge. Make sure those appliances are running efficiently and not zapping energy.

Scorpio (Oct 21 – Nov 21)

Shiver! Hypersensitive and thin-skinned Scorpios feel every little nuance and tend to get cold easily. However, they are drawn to living near water, which often means enduring cool and moist air. As the sign of extremes, they may prefer an icy ski slope one week and a blazing hot beach the next. As a resourceful sign, Scorpios are careful about their energy usage and may keep the temps low or lights dim to save money.


Pisces (Feb 19 – March 20)

Dreamy Pisces can be absentminded, leaving the lights on when they aren’t home or forgetting to turn off the TV. Practicality doesn’t matter as much what this super-sensitive sign needs in the moment. They’ll blast the air conditioner during the summer and crank the heat up to near-sauna levels in the winter. Pisces are nocturnal and may keep lights on during the wee hours when you wake up to paint or write a poem. For a more balanced bill, Pisces should explore Predictable Plan.

Predicable Plan

Predictable Plan is an Australian first and offers customers the chance to pay a fixed amount for their electricity or natural gas each month for one year (our Fair Use Policy applies if your usage is excessive or unreasonable). The new option has been recognised by consumer survey group Canstar Blue as being a ”game-changer’ in Australia.
