HOROSCOPE

The paired element of your sign is Earth and of all the zodiac signs, only the Taurus has a fixed relationship with Earth. Your special connection with Earth gives your personality the stable qualities of the very ground you walk on. While others may find you stubborn at times, this is only a result of your earthly inspired prudence and practicality. Embracing Earth’s influence can become one of your greatest assets, but you must avoid the overly conservative mindset that plagues all Earth signs.
