These Instagram Captions Capture the Grounded Spirit of Earth Signs

The water signs—Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn—are known for their groundedness, security and ability to get things done. They're just as stable as the element symbolizing them.

They're hard-working, unwavering and more reliable than anything else. Sound familiar? Then you probably post pretty consistently to your Instagram page, too, never wanting to leave anyone out of the loop.

But since captioning is hard, why not turn to some dependable resources for a little help? We think these earthy quotes, selected just for these three signs, will do the trick.
