HOROSCOPES

The paired element of the Taurus is Earth and in fact, of all the zodiac signs, only the Taurus has a fixed connection with Earth. In life you strive to be as stable and powerful as the very ground you stand on. This quality is a result of your special relationship with Earth. Moreover, it is the power of Earth that contributes to your practical sensibilities. While others have their heads in the clouds, the influence of Earth will allow you to reap the benefits of pursuing realistic goals.
