HOROSCOPE

Earth is your sign’s paired element and in fact, you are the only zodiac sign with a fixed connection to the element. Just as you can always rely on the Earth for providing firm ground to walk on, you seek the same stability in all aspects of life. The Earth’s influence is witnessed in your grounded and practical nature; you will gladly exchange fantastical dreams for practical goals. Embrace the positive qualities of earth as you continue to work to achieve your goals, but be careful to avoid the overcautiousness that may become a negative influence.
