The "Get It Done" consciousness, work ethic and ability of the Earth Signs is their super power. If you have an overwhelming job to accomplish ask a family member or friend who is an Earth Sign to help, but don't expect them to let you quit no matter how tired, until the job is done. The vision and ability to see a project from conception to completion in all aspects of life are an Earth Signs "nature flow." If they are healthy they are adept at dealing with material reality; grounded, reliable, on time and good with money.
The Three Powerful Earth Signs
Taurus (April 20 – May 20), ruled by the planet Venus are sensual, seductive, creative, artistic and loving folks. Their homes are creative, comfy havens, with earthy colors and soothing lines. They are artsy, interesting, deeply loving, nurturing friends and amazing workers. When healthy, they are intensely deep and present people with a powerful energy field. The fixed energy of their sign means just that, they are strong, enduring and relentless. So, don't make them mad! Not unlike the bull they are named for, they will plow you over leaving hoof prints on your back, and hold a sulking grudge to punish you for a long time.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22) is the mutable (flexible and amenable) Earth Sign ruled by Mercury. It is their soul lesson to understand and know themselves with their analytical, practical, and knowledge seeking mind. They excel in careers that are "of service" to others or require meticulous organization. They are kind, compassionate, giving and diligent with details if they are healthy. Their flexible, sacrificing nature can be over accommodating. If you share a pizza with a Virgo, choose the toppings yourself or you will starve while urging them to decide what they want.
Capricorns (December 22 – January 19) are very good business people. They have the practicality of the Earth Signs with an initiative that creates a perceptive personality geared towards leadership and power. They don't usually advertise their sexuality but it is in there, strong, healthy and earthy. Capricorn, ruled by the contracted planet of Saturn can be pessimistic, cold and turn their emotions off like a light switch. On the positive side, their first hit on someone they meet is usually right. Around middle age they seem to cease aging for a decade or so while the rest of us crinkle on. If they are healthy, they are adept at dealing with material reality: grounded, efficient, reliable and patient. Quick witted and funny, they will love your practical jokes, waiting patiently to ambush and get you back double when you least expect it.
Finding Balance Through Meditation
Blessings Over Your New Year,
Joy: Strength, stability, persistence, prosperity, protection, nurturing. These are the gifts of Earth and the birthright of those born under Earth signs. You don't have to be born under an Earth sign to tap into its nurturing gifts. Earth is a naturally generous and bountiful sign, sharing its gifts with all who honestly seek connection with it. Let's start with sitting comfortably and quietly in an area without phones, distracting technical devices or disturbances. Close your eyes, feet on the floor. There is no place you need to be now. Picture a lush green field, alive, vibrant and abundant with flowers and fruits. You can almost smell the sweetness of the fruit, almost taste their sweetness. You feel the tickle of the wind in your hair and the tickle of the grass on your toes. Breathe in. No one is wanting anything from you. Breathe out. You are exactly where you need to be right now. Breathe in. You are doing exactly what you need to be doing. Breathe out.
You can say this out loud or in your mind. "At this moment, there is no yesterday. At this moment, there is no tomorrow. At this moment, there is only today. I am perfectly okay." Breathe in, breathe out. You are a child of Earth, as much as any flower in this field. You are meant to grow, to manifest beautiful things. You have the ability to yield fruit that will feed you and those around you. All that is given to Earth will increase and yield the seeds of so many flowers yet to come. As easily as a flower produces seeds, so too do you easily manifest abundance. What do you want your harvest to be? Name it and see the flowers in the field bloom and grow just as you are growing with the power of manifestation.
Breathe in, breathe out. You see mountains rising in the distance, strong and steady. The power to persist even when things are hard, this too is a power of Earth. All harvests require work and strength to bring them to fruition. The mountains have strength to share with you, to make your harvest possible. Feel the solidity of stone strengthening your resolve. You have the stability of Earth to hold you up and sustain you. Where are you strong? Feel those areas grow even stronger as you attune to the strength of the mountains. Storms come and go, mountains persist.
Breathe in, breathe out. Now, visualize yourself changing, your toes become roots, burrowing down deep into rich brown soil. You are drinking in all that Earth offers you. Your trunk is strong and straight. You are rich with branches covered in green leaves that reach up to catch the sunlight. You honor your need to draw from the Earth, knowing that when you allow it to nurture you, you grow bigger, stronger, and more able to provide nurturing and protection for others.
In your mind or out loud, say, "I am one with the Earth and the Earth provides for me in every way." The Earth has some advice for you, to help you manifest abundance in this upcoming year. Continue drinking in the strength of the Earth through your roots and listen. Now say, "I am grounded, fulfilled and nurtured. I am perfectly okay. I am a child of Earth and Earth's gifts live in me." Breathe in, breathe out. Hold your hands out in front of you, palms up and visualize light in them, peace in them, prosperity in them, while saying, "In light, in peace, in prosperity." Now, bring your hands to your heart and see those energies flowing to it. Breathe in, breathe out. And when you are ready, open your eyes and acclimate yourself to the room that you are sitting in.
