HOROSCOPE

Your sign’s paired element is Earth and of all the zodiac signs, only the Taurus has a fixed relationship with the element. Your special connection with Earth allows your personality to be a stable and firm as the ground you walk on. While others may call you stubborn, this quality is only a result of your earthly prudence. You find no comfort in having your heads in the clouds, instead you only work towards practical and realistic goals. Embracing your earthly influence will keep you on a path toward success and material gain.
