Mountains in Puerto RicoYou are a stable, practical individual. You are serious and matter-of-fact and you believe that it is most important to live in a secure environment. You are most concerned with the material of life. You always attempt to resolve issues from a solid, step-by-step approach. You are often generous and unselfish.

You have a very sensible approach to life and you have few, if any, pretensions. However, sometimes, you are so stable that it can be difficult to move you from your chosen perch. You are certain of yourself and where you are in life. You tend to be a homebody, and you enjoy the quiet times of life quite a bit. There are times when you are a bit too much of a homebody and you currently do not have too many adventures, but you appear to be generally OK with that.

You are concerned with your physical body, and you may currently be undergoing a period of motivation to improve your health. It would not be surprising to find that you are currently practicing or thinking about starting yoga, Tai Chi or one of the other, internal/quiet disciplines. These will allow you to maintain health and vitality without the need for competition or rivalry. You find yourself the solid, centered confidant of those who tend to flit around you and often need your stable presence to help ground them.

You tend to trust your senses and you need to have things shown or proven to you before you will believe them.

Trust is the most important aspect of your relationship and stability does not lag too far behind.

You evaluate and judge all of the things that come across your path from a pragmatic standpoint. At this point in time, you are not particularly a risk-taker and that seems to be just fine for you. At this point in time, you do not appear to be interested in struggling to achieve. You appear to be in a more settled place in your life.

You are handy and you are able fix most things that need fixing. You like to work with your hands and you very much dwell in the material world of the senses.

Because you are centered, you nurture and encourage the success of others. People come to you when they need steady, practical advice and a calm sounding board.

Challenges for the Earth Designation

There are times when you can be too settled and sedentary. You will watch too much television or play on the computer late into the night. You get into what might be called ruts and have a challenging time of breaking out of them. There are also times when your practical nature can run counter to some of the other things that you may want to do and end up “playing it safe” rather than reaching for what you really want.
