Story

The image of soft rolling hills connotes the earth at her mature, nurturing best. Central to the image is a great tree almost floating among the hills. The element of earth is consistent, conscientious, responsible, careful, firm, reliable, ambitious, and respectful. Earth from around the globe... Chakra.  Earth is the Muladhara or Root Chakra. Physically, Muladhara governs sexuality, mentally it governs stability, emotionally it governs sensuality, and spiritually it governs a sense of security. Muladhara has a relation to the sense of smell. Astrology.  In astrology the Earth Signs are Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn. It's common to hear someone described as "earthy." Such a person blends in with their natural habitat. They're sensual, meaning they engage with life through the five senses. It takes time to sense the dense physical world, and earth signs can operate at a slower, more thorough pace than the other elements. They're oriented toward what's real, practical, and often this makes them very productive, able to create tangible results. Earth creates dependable grounded structure.
