Zodiac, Self

The people in your life who are grounded are probably some of the healthiest people you know. And when you’re one of those down-to-earth zodiac signs, you’re present in your body and you aren’t swayed by superficial things. Not even a less-than-stellar horoscope can sway you, because you’re able to feel centered and balanced, no matter what’s going on around you.

Astrology aside, we can depend on our friends and family members who are grounded as they tend to be there when we need them. They don’t say things they don’t mean just to get a reaction, nor do they make promises that they can’t keep. Grounded people tend to teach us things for our own good and educate us in ways that we might not be aware that we need.

It’s not that grounded people don’t aspire or dream, but their dreams are rooted in reality and practicality. While they stay constant, they do change; it’s just that their changes take time and are usually for keeps.

Our zodiac signs have a great deal of influence on us, so it’s not surprising that certain signs are more grounded than others, especially as they’re divided into four elements: fire, air, earth, and water. Naturally, the earth signs tend to be more cognizant than other people.

1. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Once a Taurus has dug in their heels, it's almost impossible to knock them down. Taurus are unshakeable.

They're the ones who can calmly get things done, no matter what the circumstances. They do it without freaking out, panicking, getting so stressed that they can't function, or having a major meltdown and leaving someone else to handle the situation. Taurus are able to help others with their strength.

2. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

You know Capricorns are grounded in the way that they're dependable and reliable. Capricorns show up when they're supposed to, and if something happens beyond their control, they don't give lame excuses or lie; that's not how they roll.

They plan ahead, they adjust the schedule, and they allow enough time to get the task (that they said they'd do) done. While Capricorns can be fun and whimsical, they're not flighty.

3. LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leos have a strong sense of what's right and wrong for themselves, and their moral compass is unwavering. Leos know that people look up to them, so they feel obligated to set a good example and to come through when people need them.

They're loyal and expect others to be loyal to them. As leaders, Leos can't afford to be irresponsible and/or frivolous because they must act from a place of solidarity and strength.

4. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgos don't need to be like everyone else and don't conform to arbitrary standards so that people will like them. They have confidence that if they're doing something correctly (and they know they usually are), they shouldn't have to adjust so others accept them.

Virgos are trustworthy and won't screw someone over for selfish reasons. They always try to do their best, both for themselves and for other people.

5. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libras may come off as unreliable, but the truth is, Libra is very grounded. They will stand up for what's right and will do so without becoming annoyingly preachy or self-righteous.

Libras don't act out of aggression or out of a need to stir things up for the sake of drama; they fight for justice and are advocates for those that need a voice. Libras will take a stand on issues that matter, and that stand is solid and unwavering.

6. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancers are grounded in love. They encourage others to succeed and will do whatever is asked of them. A Cancer individual is secure in themselves, enough to let things not be about them. They're not cocky or obnoxious, just people who know and understand their value.

They don't have to knock someone else down so that they'll succeed. They're supportive, caring, and faithful, and they'll definitely stand with someone to offer their support.
