In the latest zodiac series, Izzie discusses the characteristics of the Earth signs

Water, fire, air, earth. The four elements that make up the astrological zodiac signs. Each element has three of the twelve signs. Water has Scorpio, Pisces and Cancer, Fire has Leo, Aries and Sagittarius. Then there’s Air which includes Libra, Gemini and Aquarius and lastly there’s the Earth signs, Capricorn, Taurus and Virgo. People have very mixed opinions on these signs; they either love them or they hate them. Capricorns are very chill people that usually people like. Taurus and Virgo are also very laid back and chill people but someone can have a bad experience with one person and that makes them hate the entire sign.

   Capricorn is the sign known for being in the winter; the season lasts from December 22 to January 19th. They are extremely ambitious and determined people that will always go for what they want and won’t let anyone get in their way. If they do let something get in their way it’s important or something is really wrong so you should probably check up on them. Virgos, another earth sign, and Pisces, a water sign, are the signs most compatible with capricorns and they are the least compatible with Aries, one of the fire signs.   

   April 20th to May 20th is Taurus season. Like Capricorn they are most compatible with Pisces but also Cancer and are least compatible with Aquarius. Tauruses are extremely stubborn, hard working, intelligent and very dependable and dedicated people. They will always stick up for people regardless of if they’re friends or not. 

   The last of the earth signs are Virgos. Virgos are critical and tend to be over-thinkers and like Tauruses they are very stubborn but they are also incredibly hardworking, creative and patient. Virgo season ranges from August 23 to September 23. They are right after Leo season and right before Libra season. Capricorns are most compatible with Virgo so it only makes sense that Virgos are most compatible with Capricorns. They are also most compatible with Scorpios and least compatible with Sagittarius. 

   In astrology there are three specific terms, cardinal, fixed and mutable. These terms are another way to organize the personalities of the twelve signs. Capricorns are the cardinal sign of the earth signs. Being a cardinal means they’re the front runners, visionaries, self starters, leaders and big go getters. Tauruses are fixed. So they are fixated, very stubborn, hard workers and like cardinal visionaries. Lastly there’s mutable which is Virgo. They are flexible, reckless, they thrive on change, allow you to see life through a different perspective, and break down before the breakthrough.

   Over the span of August 19th 2021 to January 19th 2022, Uranus is/will be in retrograde. Retrogrades are when a plant appears in or goes backwards in its orbit from how it’s viewed from the earth. Every time there is a retrograde it affects the signs in different ways. When Mercury was in retrograde, the Earth sign that was affected the most was Capricorn. With the Uranus retrograde that is currently happening, the Earth signs were all affected. For Taurus they got a renewed interest in activism. Virgos, your anxiety might spike and really affect you, and Capricorns will just need to take time to live.
