something that the earth signs don’t usually get recognized for on tumblr is their sensitivity to touch. they are EXTREMELY sensory, they navigate the world with their senses. what they see is what they understand.
i relate this back to mercury’s rule and exaltation of virgo. virgos can be regarded by some as such a boring, rational sign, but forget their beautiful gift of wordplay. sensory language is their bread & butter; they relate their sensory experiences to writing. they commit sense to heart. blankets, temperature, tastes, dirt and ash, they can translate even the most menial feeling into poetic description. this is their secret, powerful talent.
