How the star signs express their feelings
Every person expresses their feelings in a different way. In astrology, it is mainly the placement of our natal Moon that reflects the way we express our feelings. However, our star sign (the placement of our natal Sun) can also provide some relevant insight, as it represents who we are – the core of our being. The element our star sign belongs to (Fire, Earth, Air, Water) can help shed light on the intensity of our feelings, as well as on the way we deal with them. Read on to find out how your own star sign expresses its feelings.

Aries often sees emotion as a weakness, so they tend to express their feelings in a passionate or aggressive manner. The star sign of Aries belongs to the element of Fire, so Aries people are generally extroverted and tend to express their feelings in a straightforward manner. When they experience feelings of sadness or disappointment, though, they turn them into anger to cover up their vulnerability. They express their joy and enthusiasm with intensity, but keep their feelings of fear and jealousy to themselves.
Taurus is an Earth star sign, so Taurus people are not particularly good at expressing their feelings. Their feelings often turn into physical symptoms. Taurus people tend to suppress their anger and hostility, which sometimes leads to sudden outbursts of uncontrollable rage. At the same time, they express their affection and love through their sensuality, as Taurus is the star sign that makes the most of all five senses.
