Earth Signs: Positive Traits of Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn

We want to remember that all signs have good and bad traits. Maybe a better way to think of it is more or less desirable. The less desirable traits though are always a mirror of the positive – you could be really well organized and also end up being compulsive – you can be career oriented and then you can be opportunistic – you get what I mean. The point is that our zodiac signs personality types are like a coin with two sides, but we don’t just flip for which side turns up – we choose it. Let’s look first at the positive earth element personality traits for Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn.

Positive Traits: Taurus

Taurus is very loyal, they are good with finances, they have a great sense of beauty and they are known for good taste. Taurus is a great judge of aesthetics and art. Because Taurus rules values they understand what is valuable to people in general. They are capable of focusing on what people find pleasing to the senses, so, they love good food and things that feel good. Taurus values money too, but it’s more than that, as the ruler of values, they are deeply connected to loyalty, friendship, honesty, and they are some of the most ethical people you will meet.

Positive Taurus rules our universal sense of beauty – what many people would think of as beautiful – like a sunset, a tropical waterfall, beautiful music, painting and color. Because Venus is the ruler of Taurus, many Taurus people are lucky enough to be good looking or appealing to our sense of beauty. This doesn’t mean that if you’re not a Taurus you can’t be beautiful, that’s ridiculous. It means that Taurus energy in your chart bestows attractiveness. Some of the most important things in life are of the Earth element because as human beings in a body, our physical nature is also of the Earth, experiencing the Earth. Positive traits of Taurus are all about the relationship that we have to ourselves physically and the things that we enjoy – fashion, fabric, smells, tastes, colors, and sounds. A few Taurus people with Earthly beauty include George Clooney, Penelope Cruz, Pierce Brosnan, Uma Thurman, Channing Tatum, and Michelle Pfeiffer.

Positive Traits: Virgo

The positive side of Virgo is about service, order, and maintaining the things that we have created. Virgo rules everything from our daily routine – all the things that we have to take care of. Nothing in life is sustained without Virgo. It is great to create something but it won’t last long unless some continued energy is put into keeping the things we create working properly. Everything needs upkeep – that’s Virgo. Virgos are generally shy, observant, discerning, and they are capable of making non-judgmental evaluations of a thing or situation. They love efficiency and will always look for a new method to get something done better.

So, Virgos motto would be something like – How can I help? or What can I do for you? People who don’t have some Virgo energy in their chart are disorganized and have a hard time taking care of themselves or anyone else for that matter.

Some well-known Virgos include Warren Buffett, the billionaire philanthropist, who manages his fortune and all its details and serves the public with his money. Mother Theresa whose life was all about service to others. Dr. Phil whose show helps and serves others by offering sound advice, and even Rachel Ray is a good example – where her skills as a chef combine paying attention to the details and appealing to our earthy sense of taste.

Positive Traits: Capricorn

And the third Earth star sign is Capricorn. Capricorns are hardworking, dependable, career oriented and concerned with social status and their reputation. It’s not a bad thing. They understand that a good reputation is something worth working
hard for because it provides our position in society. Our position creates the first impression that people get of us and that can facilitate a certain amount of our success in life. Slow, steady, and well planned wins the race – and Capricorn lives it to win it.

The Capricorn earth element is about the service that they offer to everyone – to society as a whole. That’s why they are very career oriented. The career we choose is part of our social status and reputation and Capricorn chooses wisely so that they can have the position they want in the world. Capricorns concern with their reputation often gives many of them a unique niche in society. They become specialized versions of their hard work and dedication. Some examples of Capricorn include Martin Luther King, Jr, Michelle Obama, Jim Carrey, Diane Keaton, Bill Maher, Kate Moss, and Mohammed Ali – all of whom developed a unique and carefully crafted social reputation.
