Too much Earth Earth 🌎 imbalances in Natal Chart such as too much Earth will need to tap into the element of Air. Air is the least grounded thus too much earth needs to get their feet out of the mud. Additionally, a well placed planet such as Mercury can assist the native. Activities such as reading, coffee breaks, walking for long distances, or walking around the neighborhood, and communicating and socialize as much as possible will release earth element imbalance. Obsticle activity in small bursts and stretching are great. The best exercise for anyone pressured by too much Earth is spontaneous carefree dancing 💃🏻 with loud music 🎶. Playing an instrument 🎷 such as the 🎸 or flute can also assist in tapping to the air quality.
Lack of Earth

Having house plants 🌱 and eating lots of green food can also assist. Lack or earth 🌍 can compensate by having planets placed in natural earth houses such as 2 house, 6 house, or 10 house.
