Astrologers believe that people born under earth signs have an easy, relaxed, down-to-earth nature that is often accompanied by a strong work ethic. The earth signs in the zodiac are Capricorn, Virgo and Taurus. People who fall under these signs may exhibit the individual qualities of their sign in addition to the overarching earth sign characteristics.

Those who are curious as to whether they are considered to belong to an earth sign should find the sign that correlates with their birthday. Taurus covers birthdays from April 21 through May 20, Virgo covers birthdays from August 23 through September 22 and Capricorn covers birthdays from December 22 through January 20.
