You are a fire sign. The most compatible with you are other fire signs： the Leo and the Sagittarius. Or else you could also do well with a wind sign.

Sis Chen. I always hear you talk about fire signs and wind signs, stuff like that. What does this mean anyway?

The twelve signs are divided up into four elements, that is: wind, fire, water and earth. The wind and fire element are Yang signs. The water and earth elements are Yin signs.

Sis Chen, don't be superstitious. This zodiac stuff is alright for after-dinner conversation but it's not reliable for Xiaowen to really use to find a boyfriend.
