HOROSCOPE

Your sign’s elemental pair is Earth and as a Virgo, you are the only zodiac sign with fixed connection to the element. It is Earth’s influence that causes you to look for reliability and stability in all life’s matters. You never take refuge in the realm of fantasy, as you much rather attempt to create practical expectations and goals. Your realistic mindset is one of your greatest assets, but it can become detrimental if you allow yourself to become overly cautious and conservative.
