Get To Know The Element: Earth

Before you get to know the earth elements, you must first understand what an element is in regard to astrology. To put it simply, the astrological zodiac wheel contains not only signs but elements: earth, air, water, and fire. It’s important to recognize the role that elements play as well as take them into consideration, as the qualities of the elements are inextricably linked to the qualities of the signs. As stated in an article by the New York Post, the element of Earth has feminine polarity. Polarity has nothing to do with the gender of the chart holder – rather the fixation of energy a sign can have.

The element of earth rules the realms of taste, touch, sight, smell, and your perception of sound. The earth signs are Virgo, Capricorn, and Taurus. According to an article by Spirituality and Relationship writer Sarah Regan, earth elements represent the physical reality of the body and tangible resources (such as money). Often concerned with the practicality of a situation, earth elements can often give you a reality check and advice like no other. In love, earth signs tend to rely heavily on physical touch and physical attraction as well as the values of a person; this applies not only in romantic relationships but in platonic as well. With money, earth signs have a strong desire for pleasant things, which can lead to a materialistic attitude. They are skilled at planning, conserving, and budgeting, but they will splurge on luxury products when they deem it to be necessary. Earth elements are more likely than other signs to become caught in negative patterns and habits. Routine and structure are fond friends of an earth element, making lists, planning tasks in advance, and seeking comfort in continuity, as well as engaging in a variety of activities. This will aid the earth element in avoiding boredom or stagnation.
