Chapter 2 – The Earth Element
Earth signs are very likable. Not always lovable, because they're the element that often feels they have to “hold the line,” but certainly easy to get along with. They come in three flavors: Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn. And, yes, there's as much disparity among them as there are similarities. They combine well with one another and can even have lasting love relationships, but often someone with another element will bring out their hidden qualities.
Earth signs are renowned for their will and endurance. Yes, some would say stubbornness, and every earth sign I've ever known will admit (after the fact) that they are stubborn. You do not want to wrangle with them without a cohesive strategy laid out ahead of time. And for all their fondness for routine, they can be surprisingly capricious when it comes to “acting on whim.”
It's also a sign you don't want to rush. Let them move at their own pace, and figure things out on their own. Once they learn something, they know it well, but you can add to their feelings of insecurity by acting as if they need to be speed-demons when it comes to task completion.

Later...(I love 3star breaks). Just heard from Laura Cortner at http://www.21stcenturyradio.com/. She produces a very interesting show with a very interesting and surprising philosopher named Dr. Bob who's kind of the Zelig of pop-culture -- intersecting w/a variety of realms. He wrote an excellent and detailed book about the making of my favorite cartoon movie when Hal and I were kids: Yellow Submarine. I've been a guest on the show talking about astrology and taking calls from folks. They're based in Maryland and we wave on our way to Bethany Beach. So hopefully I'll be on soon especially once TAE is in the stores....
