Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn
Toward the start of the year, one of my longest, closest companions (an Aquarius, obviously) delivered the accompanying assertion to the entirety of their dearest companions (reworded uniquely for quickness and security):
This year, EARTH SIGNS ONLY. Sorry fire, air, and water signs — I’ve had ENOUGH. Screw you. I’m OVER your SHIT. I’m caught up with TRANSCENDING substitute domains and measurements you can’t CONCEIVE. I should be GROUNDED.
HARMONY AND LOVE.
From one viewpoint, this was a profoundly disturbing message to get, particularly in an unwavering square of striking neon text and shouting covers. The 12 zodiac signs four elements are isolated into four components — water, fire, air, and earth — and essentially, the entirety of this current companion’s friends and family, including myself, aren’t earth signs by any means. Under the pretense of astrology, they reported removing nearly every individual who often thought about them.
Then again … I got it? What’s more, I get it. We’ve talked about air signs, which inhale thoughts and data; fire signs, which get overwhelmed with emotion; and water signs, which swim in feelings and memory. Be that as it may, these characteristics are private sensations, demonstrations of insight: immaterial. Earth is something genuine, mortal. The stuff that rises out of the earth — valuable stones, harvests, dirt — has genuine worth in the material world. We can contact it; we can work with it, we can share it. Earth exists past our minds as something we can really hold and be held inside. Earth grounds us, and the three earth signs — Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn — will generally be steady, grounded, and commonsense.
Before there was a gravity hypothesis, Aristotle thought the earth was the heaviest of the four components. Traditionally, the component of the earth has consistently been worried about the issue itself, the science of human life, fruitfulness, and the earthbound. In tarot, the earth turns into the suit of pentacles — or coins, contingent upon which deck you’re utilizing — which is the suit generally worried about abundance and realism. In the Chinese way of thinking, the dirt component is called tǔ; it addresses strength, the equilibrium of yin and yang, and the difference in the seasons.
My companion connected again half a month prior, probably, in a gathering text, with another number. I truly trust they discovered the earth. They frantically wanted gravity hypothesis — structure, association with their actual body, and commitment with their general surroundings. These are the characteristics we need to endure the requests of the three other inner, transient components, the anchor that associates us to people and others’ conscious cravings.
TAURUS is a decent sign and the second sign on the zodiac wheel. This implies it’s the most un-develop of the three earth signs; it’s additionally the most stubborn and impervious to change. Each of the four of the good signs accepts they can possess their component. Yet, the majority of those endeavors are vain — Aquarius drifts, overstuffed with airborne data; Leo self, not set in stone to hush up about their fire; Scorpio lowers their private interests so somewhere down in water that they battle to trust any other person. Earth, be that as it may, is strong. It can be contained. So, in contrast to Sisyphean desires of the other fixed signs, Taurus is equipped to clutch its component, subduing natural energies.
Here is an indication that he contrives to have things but prefers not to lose them, similar to a kid with an extremely loved toy. There is a bratty childishness around declining to share, yet additionally an affection and delicacy, an all-out dedication to their assets.
Taurus, similar to Libra, is managed by Venus. Be that as it may, Libra is worried about ethereal Venusian characteristics, similar to verse and reasoning and heartfelt love. Taurus enjoys the great stuff, the sorts of contributions that would be made to Venus at an old Roman place of worship: actual products, extravagances, food sources, spirits, decorations, fine textures, and valuable gems. Taurus loves to home and assemble that load of actual products into one comfortable space. Furthermore, this exceptionally actual Venusian sign loves preparing supper for a friend or family member, spooning them in bed, or screwing them with a creature power. Once more, Taurus arrangements need to look out for their adolescence and avarice. Their possessiveness can reach out from their material belongings to their sweethearts, and keeping in mind that that can be steady and ameliorating, it can without much of a stretch choke. Taurus works in a shortage attitude, and they need to develop the capacity to part with things.
Popular Taurus suns incorporate Sid Vicious, Cher, Karl Marx, Carmen Electra, Harper Lee, Shirley Temple, and George Clooney. They all epitomize independence to connives others’ conscious magnificence, something just conceivable through stubbornness and excitement for the actual world.
VIRGO is an impermanent earth sign. This may be astonishing, given their exacting standing. The other impermanent signs are somewhat more … free. Gemini, Pisces, and Sagittarius aren’t known for being Type-A control monstrosities. Be that as it may, Virgos are entirely changing, perpetually mindful of the harmony between their material necessities and those of others, continually holding space. This is the thing that makes them so great similarly as it makes them so grinding. Virgos are continually keeping track of who’s winning, and some of the time, every other person would prefer they hush up about those considerations.
The Virgo group of stars is “the Virgin,” loaded with long locks and a stack of wheat. We should not envision this virgin as an adolescent with a guarantee ring. Picture Diana, all things being equal, running through the forest with her bow and bolt, declining to stop for any man, even a divine being. Virgo is wildly free and immovable in the conviction that they can do everything themselves and improve. This isn’t in every case valid, yet Virgo will straighten out until they can do it as impeccably as could be expected.
Virgo is administered by Mercury, which implies that their stock and exchange lies in data and informing. Once more, how about we review the Greco-Roman foundations of these paradigms — Mercury, the god, was the messenger of the sky. This lone power could travel wherever without restraints, with speed and elegance, from the pinnacles of Olympus to the profundities of the hidden world. Suppose Gemini, the other sign administered by Mercury, is related to elevated and immaterial data like tattle and thoughtful discussion. In that case, Virgo is the actual courier — speeding from one spot to another, ordering, coordinating, and scattering. They consider this transmission of data their obligation and commitment if you like it.
Prestigious Virgo suns incorporate Mother Teresa, Ingrid Berman, Caligula, Freddie Mercury, Amy Winehouse, Jesse Owens, and Mary Shelly. Their distinction rises out of their messages: verses, mottoes, and effects that assist others more than they at any point served themselves.
CAPRICORN, the most seasoned and savvies of the earth elementals, is a cardinal sign. That implies that, as with Libra, Aries, and Cancer, there is a feeling of promptness and direness basic all that they do. They’re aggressive, prepared to make it happen, and need to do it now. The other thing that Capricorn partakes in the same way as these other cardinal signs is a kind of mindlessness to whatever other essential energy that isn’t their own — as though anything that isn’t earth doesn’t exist. This implies there is no space for the interruptions of airborne solipsism, watery sentiments, or red hot franticness in the Capricorn world. There is just earth: just the things we can contact and see, just material accomplishments and earthbound achievements, just the stuff we can complete in this world before we kick the bucket. This can make Capricorn cool, detached, and withdrawn from their inner scene; they effectively compartmentalize those different pieces of themselves to manage natural issues within reach.
Saturn administered Capricorn, the planet of construction and discipline, the celestial encapsulation of Father Time — the most token mori planet. While Aquarius, the other Saturn-administered sign, will generally apply Saturnian thoroughness to the aggregate, longing for better fates, Capricorn is more worried about their very own capacities: things that they can manifest, not simply envision. Do it here, do it now, or it will not make any difference. Make it happen before everything’s finished because fresh opportunities and next lives are rarely ensured. Capricorns can hustle like no other sign on the zodiac; however, similar to a genuinely uninvolved, obsessive worker father, their objectives and obligation to the pound can make them ignore individual achievements and relational associations. This Saturn rulership can be a wellspring of development yet a film that soaks their life in forlornness.
There is a motivation behind why my Aquarian companion was so greedy for the pure, earth-bound energy embodied by Capricorn. Most of us can undoubtedly become mixed up in the incredible — our dreams, our paranoias, our assumptions — and not set in stone to stay engaged and present, completely dedicated to being alive.
Notable Capricorn suns incorporate Joan of Arc, Greta Thunberg, Martin Luther King, Nicolas Cage, David Bowie, Charo, Betty White, and Marlene Dietrich. They all have a practically superhuman inner drive and consideration, constant pursuit for common effect.
