The Element Of Earth

By: Lauren C Dole

Earth elements: Capricorn, Taurus and Virgo, It's common to hear someone described as "earthy." A earth element blends in with their natural habitat. They're sensual, meaning they engage with life through the five senses. earth signs can operate at a slower, more thorough pace than the other elements. They’re oriented toward what's real, and often this makes them very productive, able to see the fruits of there labor. But if there are no balancing elements, earth's extremes could lead to being a work-a-holic, hoarding of possessions, pettiness, getting stuck in the mundane and stubbornness. Earth signs can just as easily work their magic in urban places, since they're often centers of a certain kind of high-level productivity. The focus on the tasks at hand make them vulnerable to the "all work and no play, Earth signs are here to shape, manifest, cultivate and revel in Earthly delights. Their gift to others is bringing form to ideas, making them a balancing partner for an idle dreamer with potential. They tend their own garden, and inspire others to make the most of theirs.
