Here is a recap of what we know:
The Mother is the natural instinct to care for and nurture all living things. She is the innate desire to love and put others first. She embodies compassion, kindness, and softness.

The mother is the 'glue' that keeps people together.

Elements and Sun Signs
The four elements are the basic principles for life.
"Tradition sees the entire universe as consisting of the elements fire, air, water, and earth. When we apply this system to the personalities, the elements represent certain basic traits and give a certain temperament." (astro.com)
Each element is related to three of the zodiac signs. This just means that all of the zodiac signs that relate to the same element are similar in some ways. The beauty in this is that all of the elements depend on each other to live on. So it is a symbol of unity within the uniqueness.
