In Astrology, there are twelve signs which make up an ecliptic (circular path). This concept was first seen in Babylonian astrology and was later influenced by many other regions. It also takes into consideration the movement of the planets, sun, moon, and stars. In 5th Century BC, a Greek philosopher introduced the idea of elements and their relations to the signs. 

Many people follow these signs as well as their horoscopes because they believe that specific signs are meant to be together. They also think that there are signs, which if entered into a relationship, will only lead to chaos and confusion. 

Some of the world's most popular signs fall into the earth group, which is made up of Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn. These three have been grouped together because they are said to be the most 'grounded' and practical of the twelve. They are also strong, conservative, and loyal. Some of their not so favorable traits include being materialistic, stubborn, overcritical, and unappreciative.
