This is the element we are closest to home with, since it is our home. Earth doesn'tnecessarily represent the physical Earth, but that part of it which is stable, solid, dependable.
Earth is the realm of abundance, prosperity and wealth. While it is the most physical of the elements this is not negative, for it is upon Earth that the other three rest. Without Earth, life as we know it could not exist.
