The element of earth represents traits of peace, stability, strength. This element is associated in the Zodiac with Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn.The earth signs tend to rely more upon their senses and practical reasons than upon the inspirations, theoretical considerations, or intuitions of the other signs, according to Stephen Arroyo (1978). They also have an innate understanding of how the material world functions. What is more, they have more patience, more self-discipline than other signs. The qualities of making a living, persistently reaching goals, being structured come naturally to the signs of earth element.
