HOROSCOPE

Aries-Your sign’s paired element is Earth and in fact, only the Taurus has a fixed relationship with the element. Much like a mountain or large bolder, Earth’s influence allows you to be stable and powerful. Although you may be stubborn at times, this is only a reflection of your grounded and practical nature. Embracing the prudent qualities of Earth will be one of your greatest assets, but be careful not to become overly cautious, as this will cause you to miss out on valuable experiences.
