What does it mean to be an Earth sign?
The Earth element brings realism and concreteness to any given personality. It's the soil, solidity, stability that holds us together. Furthermore, through this element we also find notions of rigidity, toughness and a lack of flexibility. This element is feminine and is associated with rather receptive and introverted characters. Personality wise, these natives have assertive characters and like to move forward methodically, and they can be distinguished by their materialism and need for comfort.
The character corresponding to this element is generally considered negative, cold and introverted. Natives of this element are often accused of coldness and called out for their apparent indifference to others, but don't be fooled, for this is just a shell. They are in fact capable of great patience and can endure very difficult living conditions.
Two characteristics common to all Earth signs
1. They have an unfailing pragmatism
Earth signs are usually associated with authenticity, productivity and intelligence. In order to obtain good results, these signs have to work hard, that's they like things to be done to perfection and never turn away from their goals. Endowed with a remarkable pragmatism, they are realistic, so material security is of real importance to them.
2. They can be standoffish and snobby
Their realism pushed to the extreme gives natives of this sign the reputation of being cold and distant. This may indeed be the case, but it's also and above all a way for them to protect themselves, allowing them to mask their sensitivity and to endure difficulties with patience and determination.
People belonging to this element don't need lots of things to be able to do their best. A little water, sunshine and care. Based on this premise, in love, these natives have primary needs: physical beauty, sensuality, sexuality, security, stability and tranquility. Although they dream of creating their nests and truly anchoring themselves.
In their love stories, people who are native to this element generally seek two things; sensuality and security. Routine doesn't scare them, on the contrary, it gives them the stability and tranquility they desire. These personalities dream of settling down, yet they take a long while to open up and can be very distrusting.
Folks belonging to this element like to be confident and take the least amount of risk. This heightened need for security automatically eliminates the more versatile signs. Their traits can also make them possessive and suffocating with their partners.
Earth signs need concrete proof in love because they don’t want to waste their time. They have a hard time dealing with people who make empty promises and who prove themselves to be unreliable. Now, they do not necessarily expect expensive gifts, however they do seek the reassuring presence of a stable partner. They need to be able to rely on their other half to open their heart fully. When they fall for someone, they are amongst the most faithful and stable lovers. Natives of this element are attracted to people who are responsible and mature. Otherwise, they find it difficult to establish more intimate relationships.
