This is possibly an unpopular opinion but I’d love your take on it and to hear about what you might have observed. Now, air signs are supposed to be more logical and therefore, emotionally-detached. However, I have noticed in air signs I’ve dealt with that when it comes to their personal life or people they’re close to, they are INSANELY emotional in their reactions. And a lot of times don’t even realize it. They try to justify it and apply logic after the fact but when they react to things, they can be quick to anger or excitement or whatever they’re feeling in that exact moment.
What are your thoughts on this? Is it just me or has anyone else noticed this?

I agree with what you’re saying. I’m a libra sun, aqua moon, and libra Mercury. My signs are half air and basically half fire too which may come into play, but many of my friends are also predominantly air too. For the most part we get extremely emotional quickly, but come down just as fast. Many of my friends will cry for 5 mins and then it’s like they were never crying to begin with. I think it’s because we like to control our emotions, but are quick to react(or won’t react for days there’s no in between really) So when I get emotional I rationalize my way out quickly because it’s uncomfortable to feel out of control. That’s just my take

– Does emotional-detachment mean you don’t *have* emotions?
– Do emotions immediately make something irrational?
– Can emotions not be logical?
– If they can’t, can you not rationalise being illogical?
I can think of some more, I feel like there’s so many ways to tackle this idea.

No I’m detached asf honestly. I never like to show emotions to anybody no matter what.

Strongly disagree based on top three alone (not considering aspects, houses, mercury, or mars.) They are quick to intellectualise or overthink past their most immediate emotional reaction – the resulting response that is *allowed* to manifest may be irrational but it will not generally be emotionally-driven. It’s not entirely synonymous with detachment, but I wouldn’t call it a very emotional response either. Things that evoke too strong an immediate response often become the subject of avoidance, aversion, condescension, repression, or misdirected frustration when they generate resistance to the air-driven desire to intellectualise and control.

Are you basing off of sun signs ?

wait hold up…I actually had this thought as well. Aqua sun and Libra moon.
Not until my recent relationship, I thought I was super emotionally detached. Was actually called a “ice queen” before. But the last relationship made me realized how much I care and needed to be cared for. Literally haven’t cried so much in my life and was an emotional wreck…
But I also wont let these emotions dominate my logic. In the end, brain > heart.

Big Air Energy is actually quite volatile and difficult to cope with. As an Aqua we tend to just shut down. It’s really interesting for myself, as I have Mars in Cancer.
So when an argument happens:
Cancer Placement = Hide! Flee! Wallow! (run away to cradle emotions)
Aqua Placements (stellium) = Fuck that! (Yeet emotions to opponent in the face)
2 minutes later if still arguing, Aqua is like “Welp this is a waste of my time, I had but one Yeet to give” and bounces.

I agree. I don’t find them emotionally-detached at all, just very analytical when they approach things at first which people can mistake for being “unemotional.” But if they’re very passionate or upset about something you can bet you’ll hear all about it.

Probably their chart. Air signs have detachment styles and prefer to think their emotions, not feel them. Ofc they still feel them, they just prefer to understand them through logic instead of just…feeling.

It all depends what the rest of the chart says. I have an Aqua moon (emotions) and I suppose to some in the astrology community that means distant emotions. But I’ve also got a Leo sun. Leos are warm. And a number of other sign placements so its a mix. Personally I don’t feel like I’m distant at all, but I guess you better ask those around me 😀
