Astrology 101: Earth Signs
When you think Earth, what words come to mind? I think: grounding, stability, comfort and consistent. Earth signs also enjoys the tangible and often have a drive to make money and with that comes security, again, something stable and reliable that they can count on.
Taurus (April 21 to May 21)
Patient. Aesthetic. Tenacious. Practical.
Astrological Symbol: Bull
Modality: Fixed Earth that Embodies Values
Ruler: Venus (Love and Beauty)
Tarot Card: The Hierophant
Tauruses enjoy their cozy homes. Ruled by Venus they love love and beauty is something they seek. They are also understand how properly use their senses, which is why they enjoy food so much. These bulls are stubborn, so pick your battles wisely. They adore naps and will talk you into staying in and chillin. They can also be materialistic.
Virgo (Aug. 24 to Sept. 22)
Analytical. Detail Oriented. Articulate. Planners.
Astrological Symbol: Maiden
Modality: Mutable Earth that Transitions Service
Ruler: Mercury (Communication and Coordination)
Tarot Card: The Hermet
Communication is key for those born under the Virgo sun and I’d say when in doubt, overly communicate. Ruled by Mercury, Virgos are intelligent, communicative and enjoy research. They are detail oriented and really enjoy being in control. Virgos can lean towards being protectionists and set very high standards for themselves. Also, never cancel on them. Trust me.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 20)
Disciplined. Ambitious. Magnificent. Dignity.
Astrological Symbol: Seagoat
Modality: Cardinal Earth that Initiates Structure
Ruler: Saturn (Order and Responsibility)
Tarot Card: The Devil
Capricorns are ruled by Saturn the planet of structure, law, responsibility and ambition. These people are planners and tend to keep things pretty private, so they don’t open up to new people easily. Capricorns have a vision and will do whatever it takes to see it though. They’re very secure with who they are so keep your unwanted opinions to yourself.
