The Astrological Element of Earth

Zodiac Signs Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn for Astrology Beginners

Astrology students usually learn how the astrological elements act. Understanding the element of earth and earth signs is an important step for astrology beginners.

Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn are the earth signs. People born under these astrological signs are described as stubborn, tactile and good with their hands, and earth signs are focused upon material components of life.

Earth Signs are Material

The earth signs were born into this world to learn to deal with the material aspects of it. This doesn’t mean that those people born as a Taurus, Virgo, or Capricorn aren’t spiritual; quite to the contrary, many astrology beginners will eventually learn that most of the earth signs eventually do become spiritual as they attempt to understand this world. 

Astrology beginners would be wise to take note that earth signs almost always end up achieving a great deal of wealth and/or power. Many may lose it far quicker than they gained it, but it doesn’t change the fact that the people born under the element of earth were put into this world to learn about money. This includes learning how to best spend money and when and when not to do the spending. 

As a result of being so materially focused, work and career also become incredibly important to earth signs. A Taurus, Virgo, or Capricorn that is out of work is a very sad occurrence. While those born as an earth element may invest a great deal of their personal worth and value into their career – when that career comes to an end these signs typically feel like a lost puppy uncertain of a direction to go.

As a romantic partner, because earth signs have such a strong urge to relate to the world materially, Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn typically shows love either through gifts, doing things for their partner, or through physical and sensual signs of affection. When a person born into the earth element does give a gift to someone they are giving a part of themselves with it. To lose an earth sign friend or partner a person only has to destroy, ruin, or disrespect the gift that was given. Earth sign people expect their gifts to be put to good use or, at the very least, to be well cared for.

Earth Signs are Stable but Stubborn

With all the interest in money, the material world, and business most earth signs make dynamite business people and many are among the most stable individuals that astrology beginners will know. This stability typically takes on a material form where a person knows that real-world things will get taken care of in a responsible fashion.

Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn can make phenomenal parents. Like the water signs, earth signs can be very nurturing. Unlike the water signs, this nurturing isn’t so much an emotional form of love as it is taking care of the little one’s primary needs.

As a relationship partner, the earth sign is typically known for holding the relationship together. Those born into the earth element are usually the ones responsible for taking care of the bills and other forms of real-life responsibility.

Earth signs didn’t become so stable by allowing people to walk all over them. In fact, the majority of the people born as a Taurus, Virgo, or Capricorn are extremely stubborn and thick-headed. Of course, they’ll listen to reason, but there has to be overwhelming real-world evidence to compel these signs to budge even a little.

On the bright side, for friends, this stubborn nature can be a blessing. Earth signs tend to stick up for their friends. Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn have a tendency to battle right along beside their friends to the bitter end. They’ll help with the planning and the carrying out of the plans.

Also, when it comes to doing things for their friends, an earth sign will usually drop everything to come to the aid of a friend in need. Many times this may mean neglecting their own needs in the process of assisting someone with their needs.

Earth Signs are Tactile and Good with their Hands

Just like fire signs, earth signs can be very physical. This isn’t the same type of physical that the fire signs experience. For a fire sign, physical means physical activity, doing things. In the case of the earth sign, physical means tactile, as in what can be touched with the hands.

Speaking of the hands, Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn are also well-known for being very talented with their hands. Some work with their hands and others use their hands in artistic pursuits. Regardless, earth signs have a natural talent when it comes to doing things with their hands.
