The Virgo’s elemental pair is Earth and in fact, you are the only zodiac sign with a fixed connection to the element. You desire stability and may even be stubborn in your attempts to obtain it. Just as Earth provides solid ground to walk on, you search for the same reliability in all aspects of life. Earth’s influence is directly linked to your practical and realistic expectations. As you continue to embrace Earth’s elemental powers, you will work positively to achieving your goals. Be wary of Earth’s negative influence, which include an excessive amount of caution and conservatism.
