HOROSCOPE

Your sign’s paired element is Earth and as a Virgo, you have a fixed relationship with the Element. As a very grounded and practical individual, the influence of Earth is obvious in your personality. You want a future as solid as the ground you walk on, which explains for your need to stay realistic in your goals. If you continue to embrace Earth’s influence and remain prudent, you will continue on a path to success. Try to protect yourself from Earth’s negative influence, which includes an overly cautious and conservative mindset.
