The element Earth in astrology



Taurus astrology sign glyph Virgo astrology sign glyph Capricorn astrology sign glyph






The element Earth—represented in astrology by the signs Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn—symbolizes practicality, matter, material things and their substance, possessions in general, stability, common sense, and the direct, sensual experience of what is. It also represents the constraints that the physical universe and being in a mortal body place upon us, as well as fertility manifesting in new forms.

No (or only outer) planets in Earth

If you have no planets in Earth signs (except perhaps for the outer, generational planets Neptune and Pluto) this can symbolize  impracticality and a disinterest in money, material possessions or material things in general. Perhaps you are not at home on the planet Earth, and may be lost in space, unable to put your feet on the ground. You may have trouble with getting organized, persevering, or with responsibility in general, or exhibit a childish inability to perform the simplest, day-to-day tasks. It’s not uncommon for people with no Earth, however, to over-compensate by indulging in the physical and material. It makes sense that the six astronauts Frank Borman, Gordon Cooper, Gus Grissom, Alan Shepard, Margaret Seddon and Umberto Guidoni had no Earth, for they literally left the Earth behind; but other than compensation, how does one account for the billionaires Bill Gates, John Paul Getty and Donald Trump, the explorers James Cook (18th century British admiral), Henry Stanley (Welsh writer and politician who opened Africa and found Dr. Livingston) and Gerhardus Mercator, the mathematician and geographer after whom the famous map projection is named—all of whom had no Earth?

Other famous people with no Earth in their charts are/were Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Maya Angelou, Harry Belafonte, Ralph Belamy, Gary Busey, Art Carney, Jackie Chan, Glen Close, Walter Cronkite, Doris Day, Leonardo DiCaprio, Joe DiMaggio, Farrah Fawcett, Sally Field, Peggy Fleming, Larry Flynt, James Garner, Jackie Gleason, Whoopi Goldberg, Billy Graham, Angelina Jolie, Billy Jean King, Kevin Kline, Peter Lorre, Martin Luther, Norman Mailer, John Malkovich, Nelson Mandela, Bette Midler, Liza Minnelli, Marilyn Monroe, Joe Montana, Mozart, Bernadette Peters, Augusto Pinochet, Condoleezza Rice, Fred Rogers, Jonas Salk, Carlos Santana, Steven Seagal, Dr. Theodore Seuss, O. J. Simpson, Suzanne Somers, Kurt Vonnegut, Lawrence Welk, Oprah Winfrey, and James Woods. I also have no earth, and yet as an astrophysicist, astrologer and poet ran a furniture moving business for 20 years. Such compensation!
