Earth Signs

Almost everyone knows their astrological sun sign, but hardly anyone knows their Earth sign. The Earth is always in the opposite, complimentary sign, and shows what will hold you steady or what will hold you back.

ARIES is creative, independent, courageous, playful, goal-directed. Libra Earth is refined, partnership-oriented, fair, and artistic. Aries needs freedom in connectedness, not from it.

TAURUS is drawn to the arts, financial solvency, patience and has consistency about inner values. Scorpio Earth is attuned to sharing resources, sex, the occult and transformation.

GEMINI is inconsistent, flexible, avoids emotional intimacy, willing to compromise, values diverse information. Sagittarius Earth takes cerebral knowledge and raises it to higher consciousness.

CANCER is emotionally sensitive, nurturing, family- and home-oriented, responsive to the treasures of the land. Capricorn Earth is mature, responsible, powerful and conforms to prevalent social mores.

LEO is a radiant star, coming from both a passionate and compassionate heart, focused on personalized love in romance or with children. Aquarius Earth is dispassionate, humanitarian, a non-conformist, concerned with progressive social causes and different cultures.

VIRGO is dedicated to meaningful service, often involved in health, nutrition or pets. Pisces Earth is meditative, intuitive, developing the first level of soul infusion into personality.

LIBRA has high honor, values relationships, has great taste and plays fair. Aries Earth is ambitious, autonomous and retains the light-heartedness of the inner child.

SCORPIO is intense, sexual, passionately creative but also able to destroy or release obsolete proclivities. Taurus Earth preserves and maintains what has been created, building on rather than tearing down.

SAGITTARIUS is a free spirit, identified by its belief system, pursuing higher education, athletics and long-distance travel. Gemini Earth explores diverse viewpoints but doesn't necessarily commit to any.

CAPRICORN has a strong sense of responsibility, respects tradition, is dependable, works hard in business or government. Cancer Earth is the inner softie, emotionally vulnerable.

AQUARIUS is eccentric, original, inventive, unselfish, charitable, universalizing its 1ove. Leo Earth is more interested in personalized love and recreation.

PISCES is in the world but not of it. Feeling this dichotomy, it may seek to escape from reality, getting lost on the way unless it uses meditation instead of drugs and alcohol. Virgo Earth keeps Pisces grounded through meaningful employment, healthy diet, an analytical mind and relationships with intelligent animals.
