Earth is the very ground we walk upon, the single force preventing us from falling through the cosmos, the foundation from which our perception of the universe is firmly placed. It is the power of shape, form, and physical boundaries, that which takes the most effort to change. It is the home we share with the rest of nature; representative of all things material and the basis of the sense of touch.
Earth is seen as the womb of life, the protective shelter, the great mother. From it all of our food and sustenance, tools and raw materials derive. This womb is where we have a shared physical existence with all other perceived life, be it plant or animal, until this physical life ends.
Since Earth is seen as a symbol for all things material, it is associated with wealth and our possessions. Being the basis of our physical lives and source of all things we think of as natural it is symbolic of health and healing. Is also the archetype of stability and the foundation on which we build all things.
