Earth, Fire and Water Are More Substantive. Air is that which, like the Sky, affects all 3 of the Others.
What Is Your Airness?
When you hear an astrologer say of Libra and Gemini, or Libra and Aquarius or Aquarius and Gemini -- "Well, at least your both air signs?" What does that mean?
A chief phrase: "AIR SIGN" tells the subject or the astrologer that you process information and life and stimulation and relationships a certain ineffable way.
You could say: "Oh, its the way Gemini, Libra and Aquarius process information. And people in the know, or think they are in the know, understand what is meant when this is said...but still....what does it mean?
Knowledge adds up like "marbles". It adds up like cash. Indeed a virtue. It goes back to "who raises their hand first in class", and who remembers that obscure answer on the final. Knowledge tends to be what the air signs have separate and apart from Earth, Fire and Water. Think of ALLIED concepts: communication, language. "Like, it drives me so mental!" You could say they are the "idea" people.
The Great Mission
At this point, it might be instructive to allude to a point, that will be common to all articles. You see, Twelve people go out on a secret mission in the woods. They want to go to an old mine and see if they can find a treasure there. But, if they can't find the treasure, they will just have lunch at the mine, where there is a little lake and a waterfall. Swim after lunch and go home.
So How Do Gemini, Libra and Aquarius, as Air Signs Fit Into The Mission?
Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius—air elements: The Air signs possess the virtue of knowledge. This does not mean they are more intelligent than anyone else but are generally well-rounded and informed. They are good communicators. Since they are interested in knowledge, they tend to read more than the others. In school, they are called the "smart kids". But they don't get too emotional, and so are good competitors. Although, they are not necessarily physical, so games and contests which are more mental, they tend to succeed in.
Dodgeball? Maybe not so much. Self appraisal in general?. Air signs have a tendency to judge themselves harshly. Fashion and education and "gossip and pop awareness" can be qualities that set them apart.
What About The Mission?
Early in the plan, Gemini talked up the scheme, and made it sound really fun to the dullards in the group. Gemini helped people schedule it and come up with explanations for their parents as to why this was important. For two people who did not have swimming outfits, Gemini said they could skip that, or go naked. Libra, the diplomat, got the 4 most hateful people together and created a plan so that they could get along on the trip. Then Libra personally invited the Scorpio, who you will meet later in another article to come along, just because they were exciting; and the Libra figured the group needed more of that.
More Clinical Gemini
Gemini sells an initiative that someone has conjured up. Once convinced, or even if they can convince others, they are great at getting the word out, and making it seem like news they have to know about, and make people feel "out of it" if they are not aware of it. A Gemini would change road signs in an important battle in a big war. They see how communication runs the world. Geminis know journalism is just another word for getting "my point of view" across to the world. But they will have a slight grin as they tell you how journalism has to have ethics or the world would fall apart.
More Clinical Libra
Libra has a pleasant and serene way. That comes from heir abiding sense of certainty about the knowledge and information that they have. They make good judges and lawyers and dress well, so people can see there is really just one way to dress. Libra poise is the outer manifestation of the order and sense that they envision. A Gemini can be a slob. An Aquarian wears something stylish, but it really might be out of date, or undated. But the Libra, ah, the Libra. They stand there -- the physical and outer manifestation of the inner beauty and knowledge that they embody and envision.
More Clinical Aquarius
Aquarius puts new ideas together in new ways. They put these together in their little ovens, give the recipe a new name, and are sure as "shootin'" the inventors of something totally new. They are not very good at expressing why their ideas are good, or how they came up with their perception. They intuit much. That does not make them slow, or illiterate, it just makes them intuitive, and thus they acquire insights that are not always delivered by single world packets.
A Little Air On Our Shoulders
If you wanted to put them in a different order. Aquarius comes up with a new idea, Gemini sells it to the world, after interpreting it for the public. Libra writes down the new idea, gives it formality, makes it seem like its really important, and then tries to turn it into a law or a tradition. That's how your air signs work their way in your world!

Libra can generally get along being overly judgmental and expect good conduct. Why? Because they look inside their own hearts and give themselves an "A". It doesn't matter if they are right. It matters that they THINK they are right. This generally keeps them above the crowd, because if they meet opposition, they smile and shake hands with someone else.
