What You Need to Know About the 3 Earth Signs

You probably already know the 4 elements of the zodiac by now: fire, water, earth and air. Each of the zodiac signs belong to one element, giving us 4 trios that are pretty distinct in terms of traits and qualities.

But did you know that the 3 earth zodiac signs (Capricorn, Taurus and Virgo) are also quite different from each other?

That’s because earth signs have modalities or qualities: cardinal, fixed and mutable.

Remember how the Babylonians patterned the 12 zodiac signs to fit their 12-month calendar? Well, it seems that this pattern also affects the modality of each zodiac sign.

These 3 modalities are likened to the beginning (cardinal), middle (fixed) and end (mutable) of a season. In the case of earth signs, Capricorn is the cardinal sign, Taurus is the fixed sign and Virgo is the mutable sign.

Let’s find out more about how these modalities affect the grounded people under the earth sign!

Capricorn the Sea Goat

Cardinal signs have one goal and that is to bring forth a new season. For Capricorn, that would mean bringing on winter, no matter what the cost.

This quality translates very accurately to Capricorns. They are goal-oriented and highly-determined. They are go-getters and are ambitious.

Once they set their heart into it, there’s no stopping a Capricorn from the sweetest thing – success!

Taurus the Bull

Being a fixed sign, Taureans are pretty much hard to budge. They are strong-willed to the point of stubbornness.

They are often “in too deep” and that resonates with their fixed earth sign modality. Fixed modalities embody the essence of the season, which is why fixed signs mostly come in strong.

Taureans are probably the most “earthy” (read: materialistic) people around. They are in tune to their senses and aren’t afraid to satisfy their needs and self-indulge. Luxury is their business and they will do everything they can to enjoy the finer things in life.

Virgo the Virgin

Virgos are classified as mutable in terms of modality. They are known for their changeability because of how they help prepare for a new season to come.

But don’t think that Virgos are that easy to change. Influencing a Virgo takes an awful lot. That’s because they are highly-intellectual beings who are known to overanalyze and refute change unless absolutely necessary.
