Earth Sign

Definition of Earth Sign

There are 4 elements that rule the 12 Zodiac signs: fire, water, Earth and air. The term Earth sign refers to the series of Zodiac signs ruled by the element of Earth:

Earth signs are well-known for being extremely grounded, as they're and are rooted in practical matters, integrity and hard work. Generally, people born under this sign aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty. And while signs ruled by other elements (air, water and fire) are very quick-moving, earth signs are not. If you want something done quickly, they may not be the ones to call. But if you want someone with a good work ethic in a reliable and responsible way, call your favorite Taurus, Virgo, or Capricorn.
