Alright, let’s dive in!

What Are Astrology Earth Signs?

In astrology, the zodiac signs are divided into groups by four elements: fire, earth, water, and air. Each element is made up of three signs.

The astrology earth signs are Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn, and they all have unique ways of embodying the earth element.


Taurus is the sun sign of anyone born between April 20th and May 20th.

Taurus signs are known to portray the earth element through characteristics such as strength, stubbornness, and sensuality.

These signs are highly determined and headstrong, embodying ‘bull-like’ characteristics which is the animal the sign is represented by.


Virgo is the sun sign of anyone born between August 22nd and September 22nd.

Virgos are known to be modest and strong, yet self-sacrificing individuals with an innate need to serve others. They tend to be meticulous, neat perfectionists, and are drawn towards stability of the home.


Capricorn is the sun sign of anyone born between December 22nd and January 19th.

Capricorn is represented by the goat and they are very self-disciplined, which often manifests into workaholic tendencies. These signs are strongly motivated by stability, security, and money, with a high drive to accomplish and achieve.

Traits that Earth Signs in Astrology Share

Although they all differ in forms of expression, astrology earth signs share many of the same qualities as well.

Without the earth, we would have no sense of foundation or stability. This explains why earth signs are the most stable, responsible and reliable signs of the zodiac, and why the earth element is defined by those characteristics.

Check out this study by a classical astrologer, which provides a greater detail of insight on the element of earth.

All of the astrology earth signs are known to:

  • Embody immense strength
  • Practice patience
  • Be self-disciplined
  • Have the ability to commit to something and see it through

Because of these qualities, earth signs are known to be extremely successful with what they put their mind to. They are persistent goal setters and their practical and rigid routines help them go far in life.

However, there are also downsides to this…

Earth signs may struggle with a materialistic perspective, a narrow, stubborn mind and a strict way of living. They have a need to build that is stronger than others and are accurately coined the ‘builders of the zodiac’.

These signs make stability and security such a high priority that they forget to allow themselves some time to have fun; some air to breathe. They are especially closed off to the idea of change.

Because they tend to be so focused on their own world, their lives are often achievement-based and they hold themselves to high standards compared to other signs of the zodiac.

Someone with a lot of air sign placements, for example, often needs more of the earth element to balance their energy out and bring them down to earth.

How & Why to Connect With the Air Element

If you deal with overactive earth energy, you can learn to balance that energy by connecting to the element of air.

You can bring the air element into your life through the following means...

  • Color: Wearing or surrounding yourself with the color yellow helps to stimulate air energy

  • Plants & Herbs: Fragrant flowers and herbs such as frankincense, myrrh, and violet are associated with air

  • Music: Listening to wind instruments, such as bells and chimes, can also also stimulate air energy

  • Nature: You can also connect with air energy by burning natural incense

But our favorite way to stimulate earth energy is through the use of crystals!
