Eco warriors: Some of us are born to be them, with a desire deep in our bones to love, nurture, and protect the planet as best we can.
While some of us are less passionate and more passive in our efforts to protect the world around us. For us, we learn how to be more eco-friendly from the drive, tenacity, and hard work of others.
There’s no shame in being a follower or a leader when it comes to protecting the planet. As all eco-warriors know, there’s room for everyone in the campaign to live more sustainably!
But with a connection to Mother Nature like no other and a strong desire to give back to the world, some zodiac signs feel the urge to protect Earth (and inspire others) more than the rest of the zodiacs.
Because, hey, it’s in their nature!
Are you a natural eco-warrior? Let’s explore the 5 zodiac signs with strong environmentalist tendencies – plus their top personality traits that make them fit for the job!
Key personality traits: Independent, Adventurous, Risk-Taking, Creative, Rebellious, Conversational
If there’s one thing a Sagittarius is known for, it’s their love of adventure. Exploring, traveling, and seeing the world is in their bones – and they long for it!
Their love and zest for life is a key reason why they believe so strongly in protecting the planet, even if they must stand alone in the fight for what’s right.
Being rebellious by nature, going against the flow and fighting for causes they believe in is instinctive for them.
They’re not afraid to take risks to further their causes, even if acting on their beliefs means sacrificing something for themselves.
With an undeniable thirst to create, a Sagittarius loves nothing more than the idea of leaving their mark on this world.
Key personality traits: Humble, Practical, Kind, Sympathetic, Organized, Highly Critical
A Virgo’s humbleness makes them drawn to nature and authentic people, with a strong desire to live in harmony with others.
Because it’s in their nature to be so kind, understanding, and sympathetic, they work well with others – so collaborating on environmental projects is something that comes easy to them.
With high empathy levels for everyone around them, their care for others naturally extends to the world they live in.
They have so much going on inside their brain that eco-issues affect them deeply, sometimes even making them feel stressed and tense.
Because Virgos are strong-willed and have methodical brains, they’re great at organizing and researching.
These qualities help them discover what’s beneath the surface of what we’re told (i.e., spotting a greenwashing campaign) and prepare things in their lives to help them live more eco-friendly.
Virgo can also be very critical at times, which is why they tend to question how eco-friendly something is and challenge when someone is acting against the planet.
Key personality traits: Progressive, Innovative, Confident, Analytical, Truthful, Assertive
As progressive individuals, Aquarius are natural activists and progressors of the causes they believe in.
An innovative brain allows them to “think outside the box” with any situation, making them question why things happen the way they do and what can be done differently.
Combined with their analytical personality, an Aquarius’ creativity and openmindedness is an unrivaled quality that makes them able to think, design, and implement new solutions with ease.
With a natural ability to be assertive and speak with clarity, they can command the respect and attention of any crowd.
Being so fixated on finding and speaking the truth, they despise lying and have more than enough confidence to call out those who aren’t as honorable as they are.
Key personality traits: Down to Earth, Loyal, Reliable, Tenacious, Stubborn, Trustworthy
With their feet firmly on the ground, the down-to-earth personality of a Taurus wouldn’t be anything without its appreciation for nature.
Even though they possess a deep love of the world around them, their passion lies in everything else that comes with life on Earth, including love, beauty, and money.
It’s mostly these enthusiasms that fuel their passion for protecting the planet and everything on it.
The stubbornness of an Aquarius doesn’t let much get in their way of achieving their goals – no matter how small they are or who disagrees with them.
Being a trustworthy and reliable individual, a Taurus often has no trouble making friends and keeping people on their side when it matters the most.
Key personality traits: Sensitive, Honest, Self-Critical, Ambitious, Self-Aware, Decisive
Once they set their mind to something, a Capricorn will rarely doubt their decision or go back on their words.
Being so ambitious and decisive, it’s easy for Capricorns to sniff out positions of power and thrive in them with ease and comfort.
A tendency to be hard on themselves and self-evaluate their behavior makes it easy to identify bad habits and where they can do better.
Despite their hard exterior, Capricorns have a sensitive soul. Their self-awareness can work against them to be too critical of themselves sometimes.
Even though it may appear that things don’t get to an ambitious Capricorn on a mission to succeed, they’re way more tended-hearted than they initially seem.
These zodiac signs tend to have strong environmentalist tendencies for two main reasons.
For one, they feel a deep connection to Earth and Mother Nature. Wind, sun, water, soil, and plant life spark a joy in them that makes them feel complete.
Second of all, their personality traits make them sensitive to its destruction and motivated to act when something doesn’t sit right with them.
For some zodiacs, it’s written in the stars (pardon the pun!) that balance should be restored in the way we live our modern lives.
Which is why you’ll often find them lost in a book about composting, scouring the web for answers on the wider impact of their actions, and spreading the word about what they find – sometimes with the intention of helping others do the same.
