Earth is the densest of the elements, bringing grounding and practicality. If you want someone with the patience and perseverance to get things done, you can count on an earth sign.
CAPRICORN EXPRESSION: LEADERSHIP AND AUTHORITY
Capricorn’s ruling planet Saturn ensures that Capricorns take their tasks seriously. Whether that’s raking a lawn or managing a multi-billion dollar company, they will not shirk their responsibilities. They are natural leaders and guides.

The highest expression of Capricorn is to use their authority and leadership to inspire greatness in themselves and others and build foundations for a better future.
