The Sleep Habits of Every Zzzodiac Sign

Do you spring out of bed with the sun, or would you rather burrow under the covers until you are late for work? Some Zodiac signs stay up all night, while others prefer to be in bed by 10 p.m. Here’s how your Sun sign influences your sleep habits.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Aries has two modes of sleep. After a busy day, they zonk out the moment their head hits the pillow. But if Aries hasn’t burned off enough of that Fire sign energy, they will have a restless, frustrating night’s sleep.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

For Taurus, sleep is something to look forward to all day. They tend to have very comfortable, peaceful bedrooms with luxurious fabrics and the softest pillows. This stubborn Earth sign gets very grumpy without their beauty sleep.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Gemini might have the most disordered sleep schedule of the entire Zodiac. They often have brilliant ideas in the middle of the night that they just have to act on in the moment. They’ll also stay up all night reading or binge-watching TV.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

For Cancerians, night is often the only time when they can steal an hour or two to themselves. Their sleep schedule is influenced by the lunar cycle, and they’re likely to stay up late when the moon is full.

Leo (July 23-August 22)

Like the majestic big cats that symbolize this sign, Leos tend to sleep a lot. They’re masters of cat naps and will happily sleep through multiple alarms. Oh, and they hate being woken up before they are good and ready.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)

Virgo believes in getting exactly eight hours of sleep every night. No more, no less! They likely have an evening routine that helps them fall asleep more efficiently. And they never hit snooze.

Libra (September 23-October 22)

Although Libra naturally prefers balance, when it comes to sleep that balance often happens over the span of several nights. They will get too little sleep one night, and then try to make up for it by oversleeping the next day.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

Scorpio is a night owl. In fact, they may even have a job that lets them work second or third shift. They enjoy the quiet and relative solitude of staying up late. They usually need a lot of coffee to function before noon.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)

Sagittarius never met an alarm they won’t snooze into oblivion. This laidback Zodiac sign doesn’t really believe in punctuality. They’ll sleep when they are tired and stay up all night if they feel like it.

Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

Of all the signs of the Zodiac, Capricorn might be the most chronically sleep-deprived. They have trouble “turning off” after a hard day’s work and will frequently keep thinking about a project or problem long into the night.

Aquarius (January 20-February 18)

Aquarius will keep going all night if they’re feeling engaged and passionate about whatever they’re doing. In fact, if they aren’t careful, they can quickly experience burnout. Once they crash, they’ll oversleep for several days to restore equilibrium.

Pisces (February 19-March 20)

Pisces loves sleeping. That’s when they get their best ideas. This imaginative Water sign tends to sleep longer than the average person every night–nine, even ten hours. They should avoid caffeine after noon.
