- "It's not nice to piss off Mother Nature."
- —Piper talking to the Titans before vanquishing them.[src]
The Goddess of Earth was originally Gaea in ancient Greece. The Goddess of Earth has dominion over the earth and its elements, thereby creating earthquakes, rain and lightning storms. The Goddess of Earth is one of the most powerful goddesses and the most grounded of them all.
Piper as the Goddess of Earth
In 2003 when the Titans were unleashed, the only known way to destroy them was to call upon the powers of the Greek gods. Leo Wyatt made the difficult decision to summon the powers and transfer them to the Charmed Ones. Piper Halliwell was gifted with the powers of Gaea, with her clothing transforming to be fitting for a goddess. Paige was transformed into the Goddess of War and Phoebe was turned into the Goddess of Love.
Leo turned Piper into the Goddess of Earth because she'd always wanted as close to a normal family life as was possible for a Charmed One. She also had to keep Paige and Phoebe from getting carried away by their new powers.
The Charmed Ones managed to stop the Titans when Piper declared herself a goddess. She opened a giant hole in the middle of the manor, and sealed it up after the Titans fell in. However, Piper was so distraught over Leo becoming an Elder and being forced to leave them that Gaia's powers briefly took her over. In her fury, she raised a massive thunderstorm over San Francisco. Leo managed to calm Piper down, and she relinquished her powers.

Notes and Trivia
- In Greek Mythology, Gaea, or Gaia, was not a Greek goddess. Instead she was a primordial divinity born at the beginning of the universe and mother of the Titans. Gaea was the physical, grounded and material aspects of the universe, the counterpart to Ouranos, the heavens, both as the sky and all nebulous or metaphysical aspects of life.
