The Element of Earth in Astrology


     


photoThe elements of Fire, Earth, Air and Water represent four fundamental styles of being which define our core values and attitudes towards life. Each of us has our own individual mix of these four vital forces which makes us the unique person we are. Ideally our elemental make-up would be perfectly balanced, but in reality we often have an excess or deficit of one or more element compared to the rest.

If the majority of the planets in your birth chart are in Earth signs – Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn – your elemental type is Earth. But what exactly does this mean?

The Earth Sign Personality

Earth Signs are pragmatic, realistic and highly dependable types, endowed with the necessary talents and abilities to thrive in the physical world. Always happiest when engaged in something useful and productive, they must have some kind of concrete purpose to busy themselves with, and to provide an outlet for their highly developed practical skills.

The three Earth Signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) can be considered ‘smart’ in the true sense of having practical know-how and down-to-earth intelligence. Blessed with great common sense, they excel at finding workable solutions to everyday problems, although they’re not so good at grasping abstract, intangible ideas.

Conservative and quite traditional by nature, Earth signs prefer to make the best of the status quo rather than venturing into the unknown or making changes that could jeopardize their security. Safety is particularly important to Earth types, and their sense of wellbeing is directly linked to their material assets.

All three of the Earth signs are highly reliable people who make excellent providers and are unlikely to let their dependents down. When faced with problems they take a stoical approach, quietly persisting with the job in hand until it is properly done.

Excess of Earth

When someone has too much Earth, they may be excessively preoccupied with material affairs and practicalities, at the expense of personal feelings and relationships.

Lack of Earth

No Earth, or too little Earth, in a person’s make-up can result in an ungrounded or unworldly outlook on life, and difficulty in finding one’s true place in the world.
