Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn: are you one of these three zodiac signs? Well, you belong to the family of earth signs, which are characterized by their pragmatism, stability and introversion. Discover the similarities and differences between the earth signs.
you read the term “earth signs” in your horoscope without really understanding it. And yet it is a basic astrological database, as it shows you which signs are most similar to yours, as if these signs belong to the same family. In fact, people born under the same zodiac sign are likely to find common characteristics, but not what!
The twelve astrological signs are classified into four elements: water, fire, earth and air. And each element governs three astrological signs giving them common traits, even if they are on very different dates. Thus, Taurus (April 21 – May 20), Virgo (August 23 – September 22) and Capricorn (December 22 – January 20) share common distinctive signs.
Although the analysis of your natal chart is still the best way to know your personality, knowing what the element of your sign represents in astrology is a good start.
For example, the earth signs are distinguished by their attachment to the material world. Very pragmatic, they are also stable, endowed with an unbreakable will, and display artistic qualities mixed with impressive productivity. They are the builders of the zodiac: Whether building a house or starting a business, the earth signs remain their champions. However, this need for tangibility risks plunging them into materialism and greed. In love, they seek security and tranquility, but with a good dose of passion.
But what are the similarities and differences between the earth signs? And what astrological houses correspond to them? What planets influence?

What does “earth sign” mean in astrology?
In the zodiac, earth is the second natural element after fire, and precedes air and water. Earth is associated with strength and stability, as well as resilience and common sense. The earth represents the world of the concrete, the material, the laborious. To get results, you have to work the land with patience and perseverance. That is why the signs ruled by this element love a job well done and never deviate from their goals.
However, people born under the sign of Taurus or Virgo or Capricorn are not only pragmatic: they are capable of unerring patience and can withstand very difficult living conditions. These people are characterized by their Cartesian spirit and their infallible sense of duty, as well as an apparent coldness that hides a kind and sensitive soul.
However, there are certain characteristics that differentiate them, since the earth element varies according to the season and affects the zodiac signs in a different way. That being said, the earth signs are not totally different from the other elements: with the fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius), they show tenacity, while the air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) share this propensity for firmness. Finally, with the water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces), they have in common the introverted side and helpfulness.
Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn are stable signs, which can always be trusted. The earth element is a fertile energy, prone to internal dialogue and reflection. In astrology, earth signs are considered to be of “passive” polarity, which corresponds to a more feminine energy associated with Yang, because these signs identify qualities and flaws that prevail in women than in men.

Taurus (April 21 – May 20): “fertile” earth sign
The land that characterizes Taurus is defined as “fertile”, since it is influenced by spring and the mild climate that settles on it. Calm, placid and calm, he likes to move to his rhythm and has a very balanced personality. He prefers to take his time before acting: he weighs each decision to make sure there is no risk. This explains the energy that governs this sign, always constant and almost inexhaustible, as well as his protective and maternal side towards his loved ones. The planet Venus, a symbol of beauty and love, rules this sign with its epicurean nature.
Determined and persevering, Taurus is brave and endowed with incredible strength of spirit, always ready to fight to make his dreams come true. In addition, he is famous for his infinite patience and gentleness towards others, as well as his strong sense of friendship and love, which allows him to establish lasting bonds. He is always fundamentally honest and his word is golden. Furthermore, as the consummate aesthete, he has a monopoly on good taste (a little more près!).
Although he likes to travel, in everyday life he is very (even too) sedentary and routine. He loves to stay in his comfort zone: he lacks flexibility and adaptation and always tries to maintain the habits to which he is very attached. On the other hand, the visceral love that he feels for his partner can lead him to be extremely jealous and possessive, and when he fights, he never questions it.
love compatibility :
In love, he is sensual, tactile, and craves a lot of tenderness and pampering. He easily becomes a real heartthrob, since he knows how to use his charm. But despite everything, he will soon look for a life partner. Thus, as with other earth signs, Taurus gets along very well with water signs both in a relationship and in friendship, especially with Scorpio (his complementary sign). He also gets along very well with Cancer, Virgo, Libra with whom Taurus shares the influence of Venus. These signs also have an appetite for the aesthetic and material pleasures of life.
Incompatible signs: fire signs (especially Leo), Gemini, Aquarius

Virgo (August 23 – September 22): “mobile” earth sign
La Virgen is characterized for being a land of late summer, a transition phase from one season to another, and for this reason it is defined as “mobile”. In the zodiac, she immediately follows the bombastic Leo sign and is in complete opposition to it, as Virgo is the very allegory of self-control and organization. He is a logical, perfectionist, hard-working, practical, helpful, critical, complex and detail-oriented mind. The Virgin is very shy and protects herself from any form of invasion: she seeks above all stability and security. This sign is directly influenced by Mercury, planet of the intellect and pure reasoning.
Calm and thoughtful, Virgo stands out for its sensitivity and discretion. She likes to observe her surroundings and she is attentive, especially when it comes to those close to her, which makes her an excellent friend. She is also endowed with unparalleled altruism and great listening skills. Furthermore, she is organized and methodical, and she has a great sense of duty and hard work. Very devoted, she knows how to sacrifice herself for those she loves and gives her best without question: the Virgin can only prosper when she feels indispensable!
Her rigor and precision in organization lead her to become obsessed with perfection, with an attention to detail that makes her excessively demanding. She likes things to be done by the rules, but hers are her own: she is a champion of advice and criticism. This sign is picky, she always has the last word and often irritates those around her for doing better than others. In addition, her lack of self-confidence easily leads her to melancholy and victimhood.
love compatibility :
In love, the Virgin is modest and unsentimental. She prefers to control her emotions and feelings rather than give in to her wishes for fear of rejection. However, once freed from her inhibitions, she becomes as passionate as ever. In general, she gets along especially well with the water signs where a perfect understanding can be born in the couple, especially with Cancer and Pisces (her complementary sign of hers). Virgo will also find happiness with the other earth signs, while with the air signs she could be seduced by Gemini, with whom she feels a strong sexual attraction.
Incompatible signs: Aries, Leo and Aquarius
astrological house: House VI (daily life and health)
Associated Gemstones: opal, agate, garnet
