There are four elements in astrology, and each Zodiac sign is assigned to one element. One of those elements is earth, and there are 3 earth signs: Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn.
The earth signs are reliable, dependable, and practical. These are the signs that slowly build over time, and you can count on it.
Taurus is the second sign and builds on what we've begun; Virgo is the sixth sign and tends to the details; and Capricorn is the tenth sign and realizes success.
Earth Signs and Work
With work, earth signs are the worker bee signs, the ones who stick to what they're doing and see it through. They can be very practical with their schedule and plans, and want to get as much done as they can when they have the energy to do so. Virgo and Capricorn in particular are superb workers and have great work ethics; Taurus may need some time to get started, but can get anything done once they do.
Earth signs have the best work ethic as a result, and you can count on them to get the work done. The issue with them is, they may struggle with taking the initiative at times, so they may need permission to get started, or some direction at first. Capricorn can have the easiest time, but can still wait a while before getting started.
When it comes to their career, earth signs can be dedicated to their professional pursuits. They're a-okay with working slowly but surely, making progress little by little, until they finally achieve what they've set out to do. They don't feel the need to rush it, and can get there eventually, and believe that they will.
When it comes to money, earth signs are the savers of the Zodiac. They want to sock money away, making sure they have enough for a rainy day and anything unexpected. If they don't have good savings, they can feel really insecure financially, and this can cause a lot of stress and worry, especially for Virgo. Taurus can have the easiest time splurging, but even they want to make sure they have enough.
The earth signs are the signs that naturally connect to the professional areas, with Taurus being the sign of money, Virgo being the sign of work, and Capricorn being the sign of career. This means they are usually the ones that have the easiest time with a professional life, and feel that it's important for their overall well being. Some signs don't need a job and can just be bums or rely on other people, but the earth signs generally enjoy having a job and feeling like they're making a contribution.
All of this can apply to your Sun sign, however you may find that you most connect with the earth signs if your professional houses fall in these signs (2nd house of money, 6th house of work, and 10th house of career).
