The element of sensuality and strength.
Has the earth moved for you recently? If your lover is a Taurean, a Virgo or a Capricorn, it ought to have done. These are the zodiac’s earth signs and they all have the ability to smolder and erupt, like a volcano.
You may not think this to look at them though. They usually pretend to be sensible, organized and efficient. Then, when the moment is right, they suddenly change. Think, for instance, of the businesswoman who takes off her glasses and lets down her hair… or the mild mannered reporter who turns out to wear underpants over a jump suit.
Earth sign people are masters (and mistresses) of disguise. They have to be because, if you and I knew what they were really thinking… we’d blush with embarrassment. Or, to put it another way, Earth sign people are very, very down to earth. Don’t waste their time with subtle suggestions. Don’t slowly try to get them in the mood. They are not open to persuasion or coercion. They are either ready for everything – or they are interested in nothing. And when the moment of enthusiasm arrives, they will let you in a clear, emphatic way.
They will reach out and touch you, softly stroke you and show you precisely what they have in mind. For these are the zodiac’s sensualists. They have enormous, hearty appetites which they like to fulfill slowly, course by course by course. In their own time. When they are ready. Without pressure. But with plenty of strong, unquestioning support from their partner.
So, is there nothing you can ever do to convince an Earth sign person that love is on the menu when they say they don’t feel hungry?
Hmmm. Maybe there is one thing. Offer them a massage. A proper, thorough chance to loosen the tension in their neck, shoulders and spine. Then… you can see what happens next.
Here, just in case you want to make your dictionary a little bigger, are four new words for stubborn. “Taurus”, “Leo”, “Scorpio” and “Aquarius”.
These are what astrologers call the Fixed signs. All four of them have the capacity to dig in their heels and wait for what they want… no matter how long it takes. Their memories are as long as their hearts are passionate. They are, between them, the zodiac’s most unashamedly sexiest signs.
What? Even the Aquarians, who are allegedly just walking computers? Yup. Especially them. They may dwell in the realm of the mind but they think, a lot, about the pleasures of the body. And this is one area where thought alone most definitely does not satisfy them.
And as for the other three… well, I’m sorry but this space is too small to waste in a description of the obvious. Besides which, this is a website for all the family. One word is all we need bother with. And that word is ‘appetite’. As in voracious, relentless and insatiable.
You disagree? Well maybe that’s because you happen to know one who is currently on a fast. Sometimes, ravenous people get past the point of hunger. Once they do, they can abstain for ages. Especially if they happen to be born under one of the fixed, unyielding sign. Sooner or later though, the desire to get physical will resurface… with a vengeance. But in their time, not anyone else’s.
And here ends the first lesson about how to win the heart of one of these people. You give them time. Lots of it. Months if need be. Years if you really care. And you also give them that time if you want the relationship to last. You think of the long term. You make it abundantly clear that you mean business – and you prove it, by offering your trust. You don’t use words – for words are cheap, as every Taurean, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarian knows.
You don’t make dramatic gestures. Indeed, you keep drama to a minimum. For even if they appear to thrive on it, they secretly find it threatening. What they want is stability, plain and simple. For while some people consider continuity to be just a little boring, these deeply loyal people crave it like a drug. And rightly so, for they deserve it.
