Earth Signs – Traits of Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn Zodiac Signs

In astrology, all 12 zodiac signs are divided up into four elements (fire, earth, air, and water). The elements are essential to all human life and cannot exist without each other.

Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn) are the most grounded peeps on the planet — you know, the ones who always keep it one hundred percent real. They’re known to be stable, pragmatic, and unwavering. If you want someone to edit your resume or help you move, you’re calling an earth sign. They’re practical and reliable, and you can always count on them. They make the best friends. Slow to anger, it takes a lot of effort to get them frustrated. But when they’re annoyed, watch out!

Even though they’re practical, earth signs are anything but boring. Sensual to the core, they love to collect material objects — especially when they’re treating themselves as a reward for all their hard work. They’re particularly in tune with their senses, which means they have delish food recs, gorgeous fashion recs, and make ah-mazing playlists. Never ones to abandon a project or relationship, they’ll keep it all going and remain friendly till the bitter end.

Their patience and artistic skills are enviable. They’ll always use their beautiful minds and high standards to work on long-term projects that require a lot of energy and commitment — but it must align with their values.

Elements are always four signs away from each other: For earth signs, Taurus is the second sign of the zodiac, Virgo is the sixth, and Capricorn is the tenth. This placement is something astrologers call “trine,” and it brings good vibes. It also means that earth signs tend to get along with other earth signs, whether as friends, lovers, family members, or even coworkers. They just ~ get ~ each other, y’know? BTW, earth signs also mesh well with water signs — they’re something called “congenial elements.” You need both earth and water to make plants grow, after all!

There’s one earth sign for each modality — which, BTW, classifies zodiac signs by whether they fall in the beginning of a season (cardinal signs), middle of a season (fixed signs), or end of a season (mutable signs).

Here’s what to know about the three earth signs:

Taurus (April 20 to May 20)

Tauruses are the artists of the zodiac. They use their innate sense of beauty and sensuality to manifest their dreams, and they inspire others to do the same. On a good day, Tauruses are persistent, hard workers, reliable, and stable. On a bad day, these bulls can be indulgent, lazy, possessive, jealous, and controlling. All in all, they’re one of the most loyal zodiac signs out there because they will never waver in their heart or affections — although they might flirt a little with others for extra attention. Their fixed sign nature means they value commitment and can be just a little bit (okay, a lot) stubborn.

Virgo (August 23 to September 22)

Virgos represent the analytical minds of the zodiac. They’re a mutable sign, known to be logical, practical, sensible, and reasonable. They take a systematic approach to life and they value truth and justice — they use their finely-tuned minds to investigate situations and decipher alibis through reason. Can they be a little obsessive about the tiniest details? And it is. But only because they’re trying to stay knowledgable. Their chameleon-like mentality makes them open to change, one baby step at a time.

Capricorn (December 22 to January 19)

Capricorns are the initiators of the earth signs — they’re known to be ambitious and hardworking. As cardinal signs, they’re not afraid to take charge. They place an importance on control and status and have a rep for being stoic and proud. That’s because they like to watch situations unfold from a distance, but they are actually extremely sensitive and reflective deep down. Never one to sit by the sidelines, Capricorns take action and always complete what they begin. And contrary to astrological slander, they rarely hold a grudge.
