The Element of Earth in the Zodiac Signs
The earth is the sole goal of all the elements, because it is the basis for each element, for our existence as a whole, and for what we all want to achieve – the fulfillment of our desires. This is a complex element because it is rigid and immobile, especially when a person has many planets in it, but not enough in the element of air to balance it.
Earth is the element of our planet, from which it gets its name. We should keep this in mind when decoding someone's chart, because the absence of Earth can indicate the great problems that a person experiences when finding grounding or connecting to the soil on which they were born.
You can immediately see that these are pragmatic signs that appreciate material things; they work hard, and know how to make a plan and make it work. All three signs have the capacity to be particular and specific, expecting everyone else to share their pragmatic view of the world and their sensible approach.
The Earth represents matter, our physical body, and with it our finances, the food we eat, and our daily lives. Highly attuned, people with an emphasis on this element tend to succumb to an unchanging routine for years, sometimes too scared to get rid of it.
In a complex mode, they will stick to habits that don't make them happy just because they are convinced they should or stay at work because of financial security, while completely neglecting their mind and creativity.
How To Balance The Earth?
The main problem that representatives of earth signs have to face is the identification of something similar to air — quick, translucent and unsteady. Earth signs that have lost their balance should stop questioning every single decision they have already made, with no regrets make changes to their lives and daily routines, and get rid of their habits. Their destination must be clear and their contact with emotions powerful and unshakable, and for people like Virgo, who accepts Venus in the fall, this requires particular effort.
To get closer to the Air, representatives of earth signs should take coffee breaks, read more, walk idly and communicate as much as they can. They need to communicate verbally, not in writing. They will not give up on a new computer, as well as new acquaintances who change location and ambitions, teaching them to move. They need to relax and exercise more to prepare their body for changes. The best exercise for those who are under pressure from the Ground is to dance, inadvertent and without worries, with contemporary loud music and preferably a relaxed partner.
