Your Sun sign keys you into understanding the fundamental energy that you run on. There are four basic different categories of this energy: Earth, Water, Air and Fire. Start with understanding your element and then move on to understand it’s specific qualities within your sign.
Today we take a quick look at Earth energy.
Earth energy is practical and sensual. It is naturally tuned into solid reality. It is also more body conscious. With Earth energy comes a likely ability to stay grounded in the face of chaos. There is often a need to make things manifest on a physical level. Like Water, Earth is Yin, so there is a natural inwardness to it.
Earth is physical, tangible, and everywhere we look.
Breaking the Earth signs further down into their modes we get:
Cardinal Earth: Capricorn. Cardinal INITIATES. Think of the above description of Earth energy and add the concept of INITIATION to better understand Capricorn.
I will give examples with some “doubles” below (Sun and Moon in same sign). Doubles are fun to study because the archetype of the sign is often made more visible.
Double Capricorn James Earl Jones has both these planets in the first and Saturn on the ASC (Saturn is the planet associated with Capricorn). His identity (first) is composed of authoritative, self composed energy (Capricorn).
Fixed Earth: Taurus. Fixed signs MAINTAIN. With Earth energy now add the concept of MAINTAINING to better understand Taurus.
Sex-kitten dancer/actress, Ann Margaret has everything in sensual, body oriented Taurus and in the 12th. She seeks an ideal (12th) in celebrating her body and her physicality (Taurus)
Mutable Earth: Virgo. Mutable signs ADAPT, CHANGE and REFINE. Add these concepts to Earth energy to better understand Virgo.
Like Jones, Sean Connery also has Saturn on the ASC (authoritative identity) but his Sun and Moon are in Virgo and in the 8th. He has been very valued by others (8th) in playing the most iconic of all the James Bonds with his appealing and unassuming (Virgo) style that embraces neatness and precision (Virgo)
In the next post we will explore the Sun signs that run on Water energy.
