I drew upon the tool of artistic expression to open a class on Leo and Aquarius; the class was already familiar with the elements and quadruplicates so I asked them to use their imagination to illustrate fixed fire and fixed air.

- Leo – powerful, enduring, confidence, strength, colourful
- Aquarius – cool, aloof, untouchable, distant, icy, ethereal
The students were surprised at how their spontaneous drawings of colour and shape articulated the essence of these two different energies, particularly those whose charts highlighted the two signs.
