This Is Why You Procrastinate, According To Your Zodiac Sign


Aries (March 21-April 19)

You’re always creating new projects and considering new possibilities, without finishing what you’ve started.

Aries is the ultimate initiator of the zodiac, which means you have a lot of passion, drive, and energy towards work and your professional ambitions. However, with that forward momentum comes the temptation to forge ahead without watering the gardens you’ve already planted. The urge to start something new means that you constantly are juggling five or six unfinished projects and struggle to stay the course until competition.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

There’s no keeping you from your lover.

As Earth signs, Taurians are naturally industrious, hard laborers, who are skilled in business and finance. Taurus is also a very romantic sign, that treasures romantic relationships as much as their work…perhaps sometimes even moreso! That means when you’re in the honeymoon stage, you’re very easily distracted by your partner, texting your partner, planning romantic getaways for you and your partner, you get the idea.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You go on rants and can chat someone’s ear off about current events.

There’s no sign in the zodiac that has the bandwidth for banter like you, Gemini! You’re quite a talker and once someone has engaged you in a conversation about one of your many interests, they’d better be prepared to chat over more than just a cup of coffee; you’re going to need an entire meal to get your point across. Once you get an idea churning in your head, you just can’t let it go, which often leads to your focus being scattered.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Family over everything is your motto.

Cancer’s value family loyalty over all else, which means that you don’t just value, but demand, QT time with your loved ones. Any kind of family antics, drama, or just plain togetherness can distract you from putting your nose to the grindstone. After all, blood is always thicker than water, right Cancer?

Leo (July 23-August 22)

You have a taste for luxury and luxury has a taste for you.

Your weakness: shopping. Especially online shopping. You love the finer things in life and spend a lot of time ogling over the latest handbag, dream house, and hottest sports car that you’re adding to your vision board. This habit can lead to some serious procrastination, if you don’t keep your wallet in check.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)

Cleaning is like sex…actually, it’s better.

There’s nothing you enjoy more than a clean house, Virgo. Washing the sheets, doing the laundry, organizing your pantry, and cleaning out the garage are your version of pillow talk. You can get easily sucked into cleaning, organizing, and labeling everything in sight that you lose track and motivation for the task at hand that’s not related to being orderly.

Libra (September 23-October 22)

You’re a social butterfly who can’t help but to spread her wings.

Let’s face it: you love to have a good time. Libras are known for being the most social sign of the zodiac, naturally attracting a lot of attention from suitors of both the platonic and romantic variety, as well as being naturally extroverted. Parties, get-togethers, Sunday brunches, really any excuse to get out and socialize is what keeps you from cracking down on your to-do list.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

You’re fascinated with things of a paranormal nature.

As a Scorpio, you’re intrigued by anything taboo: sex, drugs, death, paranormal activity, metaphysics. You love to delve into topics that most shy away from. Also, thanks to your obsessive nature, your investigations and quests to make the world bend to your will can get you off course faster than you can say “power hungry.”

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)

Education and travel rev your engine.

Sagittarians are naturally curious, which draws them to constantly seek out further education and experience. Unfortunately, this means that you’re often too busy earning new degrees to actually put the ones you already have to good use. Your serious case of wanderlust also doesn’t help matters, since you don’t need any excuse to escape reality and go on an adventure.

Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

You can easily take on too much.

Capricorn, you have a lot going on! Natural work horses, the typical Cap doesn’t even have the word “procrastinate” in her vocabulary. As a result, these Earth signs can easily crash and burn, by taking on too much, and trying to manage too many irons in the fire. What can I say, your kryptonite is also your superpower.

Aquarius (January 20 to February 18)

You crave adventure and work to live.

Daredevil should be your middle name, since Aquarians love to take risks, make bold moves, and live their lives as unapologetically as possible. Often, Aquarian’s biggest source of procrastination is their desire to see, do, and experience everything the world has to offer, at the expense of their ambition. They’re perfectly fine living within their means, being practical in their spending, if it means that they can consequently travel the world, owning what they can carry on their back.

Pisces (February 19 to March 20)

I get caught up in my emotional melodrama.

Saying Pisceans are emotional would be a huge understatement. If you looked up the word in the dictionary, you’d see a picture of their face next to it. As a Pisces, you feel things very deeply and are naturally intuitive, which causes you to get wrapped up in not only your own feelings, but those of everyone around you, too. This makes for some serious drama, whether it be internal or external, that often consumes Pisces to the point of not being able to focus on the tasks they have at hand.
