🍃✨ Earth in Magick ✨🍃

Earth is the starting point of all magick, the centre of the elements, the Mother of everything - but, you probably already knew this! In terms of magick, think of the element Earth as a foundation. Much like the physical planet itself, the element of Earth is grounding, and its usage in witchcraft is based around growth, strength, and prosperity. The existence of Earth is what gives life to all other elements. It is the home of our flowing waters, the soil which provides us with growth, and the oxygen that allows us to breathe.

♡ The Earth Signs ♡

The earth signs - Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn - are all about grounding and stability. This translates into having very dependable, trustworthy, and practical personas. Earth signs are definitely the ones you can depend on for a measured approach. This may in turn cause them to neglect the emotions of their peers, as they can become quite caught up in their own objectives. This occasional desire for material objects in helping lead to a happier life often deems them to be materialistic; however, these signs are really just extra firm in their ideals and passionate about their goals. (That being said, it is still healthy for such signs to try and maintain a healthy balance of possessions and self).Much like the planet Earth itself, earth signs are simply strong in their desires to obtain a comfortable environment through a stable, grounded life.
