Geocache Description:

Base level cache with the co-ordinates to Virgo

The twelve signs of the zodiac each have an element associated with them. The four elements are Earth, Air, Fire and Water.

The Elements

Fire signs are Aries, Leo and Sagittarius. The co-ordinates for Sagittarius will be found in the Aries and Leo caches.



Water signs are Scorpio, Cancer and Pisces. The co-ordinates for Pisces will be found in the Scorpio and Cancer caches.



Air Signs are Gemini, Libra and Aquarius. The co-ordinates for Gemini will be found in the Aquarius and Libra caches.



Earth signs are Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn. The co-ordinates for Virgo will be found in the Taurus and Capricorn caches.




Co-ordinates for the bonus "ZODIAC CACHE" will be found in the Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemini, and Virgo caches. A diagram illustrating the series can be found here.

The only bulls you will find near the Taurus Cache are Bull Rushes. Located on the Brown Moss Nature Reserve near Whitchurch you are looking for an oblong tupperware-type container having the usual log book, pen and pencils, A light pen, Bookmark, tissues, a brass cello, glass owl and other items. Also half the co-ordinates to the Virgo cache can be found on the back of the information card and on the inside cover of the log book.

The Brown Moss Nature Reserve is home to a lot of water fowl and fungi (Aside from the fact that many of these are poisonous, please also remember that this is a nature reserve and leave them in place). Recommended parking is at N52° 57.023 W002° 39.007 Other parking is available around the reserve. Multiple paths throughout the area range from soft and boggy to buggy friendly. Please be careful when retrieving and replacing the cache as there are a lot of muggles about.

A big thanks to the Shropshire County Council Countryside commission for their permission and assistance in planting this cache.

The ducks would appreciate any donations of bread offered to them. Wholemeal or brown bread is recommended.
