EARTH SIGNS: TAURUS, VIRGO, CAPRICORN
“The most stable, consistent and sometimes rigid of all the signs. Once they make up their minds, like mountains they cannot be moved without huge efforts. Practical, patient, reasonable, and persistent are these signs. If you want to make sure a project gets done and gets done “right” call on an earth person. They will stick with it until the bitter end. Not much one for spontaneity or flexibility (we leave that to the air signs), not as sensitive as the water signs, the earth signs are still aware of the needs and often want to serve others. These people are not in for the limelight; If it can be done, an earth sign will do it without the need for recognition.
Often so rigid, they become stuck with old routines to the point of impracticality. Fear of starting something new, earth signs can be very cautious to the point of missing a great opportunity. Conventional to a point of boredom.
The fast moving, changeable air signs fascinate Earth signs though they are untrusting of their unworkable schemes. If you see an adult asking why repeatedly, you can pretty much be assured you are in the company of an earth sign. Fire signs are too forceful for their slower thorough nature. Sharing with the water signs the characteristics of retentiveness, self-protectiveness, and acquisitiveness, water signs will sooth and comfort the worry element so often found in earth signs. With this support and encouragement, earth signs can work and work and work.”
Earth is real, you can see it, hold it, smell it. Suitably so, earth signs are very “down to earth” and real. Earth is the foundation on which everything is built. Earth people are solid and stable and composed of many different parts, they are multi-faceted people, like the many mineral compounds that make the earth. There is nothing wishy-washy about these people, they do not have their head in the clouds. They are dependable, you know they will always be there and they are stable. Most of the time anyway, more stable then the other elements. Earth does not change. It stays there and allows whatever is growing to continue to grow and progress. Earth signs are not fond of change, they like stability and a regular life they can grow upon and develop. Why start something new if what is already there is fine? Earth people are the most materialistic and possessive of all astrology zodiac elements. Earth people are also concerned with what’s on the surface and never really dig deep to get to the bottom of it, they are happy with what’s on the surface.
The first earth sign, Taurus is the most stable and the strongest. Taurus are known for their stubborn nature and their unwillingness to change. Taurus is earthly sensual and wants harmony and happiness, creating it by their surroundings, holding tight to the people and the things in their life. They have a solid foundation and help others to build theirs too, they are dependable, nurturing and wise.
The middle sign is represented by the middle of earth, not quite on the surface and not quite deep down either. Stuck in the middle and indecisive. Virgos live in their own world on a earthly-mental plane. They observe and think with quick analytical precision, and are flexible, helpful and stable. Virgo is the least physical of the earth signs.
Represented by the lower earth, Capricorn is the earth in its most basic and purest form. Just like the pure earth is made up of various elements, Capricorn has many sides and takes interest in everything, from materialistic possessions, to being a powerful status symbol. Sort of like the depths of the earth, Capricorn is mysterious and deep. They can be dark, not in a malicious sense, but in a depressed sort of way since they are very conservative and have a difficult time with pleasure since they are so concerned and involved in their work and the more serious aspects of life.”
