The Laziest Zodiac Signs (And Why)


No one likes to be called lazy, but that’s exactly what many people are. There are a lot of reasons why a person might be lazy and not wish to work hard to better themselves. Well, one of those reasons may surprise you: your zodiac sign. Just like other parts of your personality, your laziness or lack of laziness is affected by the sign under which you were born, which means this is something “out of your control”. Does it mean you can’t change your behavior and work a little harder? Of course not. It just means that the sign we were born under likely affects our level of laziness more than we like to think it does.

By now, you’re likely very ready to see where your zodiac sign falls on this list, so let’s get started by finding out the laziness level of all 12 zodiac signs.

Our “Most Lazy” To “Least Lazy” List

1. Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

We’re starting with the most-lazy zodiac sign, which just happens to be Sagittarius. Since these people like to feel they have control over their time and their schedule, especially their personal time, they tend to be a bit on the lazy side. They’re not lazy for the sake of being lazy; they’re lazy because they want to live life on their own terms. This means spending as much time as possible doing the things they love, instead of doing things they do not.

2. Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

While Aquarians are curious and very intelligent, they hate doing boring or mundane things, and this expresses itself in a type of laziness on their part. They’re also temperamental and can feel like some jobs are beneath them, which further contributes to their laziness. Their distant personality doesn’t help things either, because it can give them a “devil may care” type of attitude.

3. Taurus (Apr. 20 – May 20)

This is an earth sign, and a Taurus tends to be tenacious and shoot for doing the bare minimum – no “above and beyond” for them. Work is okay for them, but it isn’t a priority. What is a priority? Comfort! That supersedes everything else in their life, which is why they tend to be very lazy indeed. Add their stubbornness to this and you’ll understand why they are the way they are.

4. Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)

Since they tend to have a sense of entitlement and love being the center of attention, Leos work toward an average life, not an extraordinary one. They underestimate the work their colleagues do and try to cover up their laziness. In the end even their charm cannot hide the fact that they are a bit lazy. People can tell they’re lazy, but they believe that if they can’t be the center of attention while working, why work at all?

5. Pisces (Feb. 19 – Mar. 20)

On the inside, a Pisces wants to work hard, but things get in their way too often. Fantasy and even worries can take over and cause them to fill their minds with these things, thereby leaving little room for things as insignificant as work. They also have very active imaginations and consider themselves victims of circumstance – not people who are lazy.

6. Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Cancer people are usually either lazy or they work so slowly that people think they aren’t doing anything. Their level of efficiency is directly affected by their moods, so they’re not usually the most productive people in the room. Even when they have a day off, they tend to do very little, especially because they consider their home a safe zone where no one will judge them.

7. Libra (Sep. 23 – Oct. 21)

Even though they often get fatigued early on, Libras are in the middle of this list because they do tend to work hard, and they work very well with others. In fact, because they are friendly and extroverted, they often work better in groups than they do alone. They usually give it their all until they run out of energy, but most of them can last a while.

8. Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Geminis tend to be energetic and therefore they are not exactly couch potatoes. They’re very curious and talkative, and they love to learn.This is why they may become lazy if they find their days are becoming “too routine” and that they do the same things day in and day out. Give them variety, however, and they’ll work very hard.

9. Scorpio (Oct. 22 – Nov. 21)

Scorpios tend to be extremely motivated and committed, which means they are real work horses. In fact, in everything they do they give it their all, in part because they feel like this is the best way to get the things they want in life. They like to feel in control and they love knowledge, because to them knowledge is power. This is why they consider working hard to be so important.

10. Aries (Mar. 21 – Apr. 19)

Aries are bundles of energy and are often in the field of motivational speaking. They don’t procrastinate and they feel that by working hard, they can get to the top a lot faster. They also tend to be self-confident enough to push forward without input from others, which means they can also get things done a lot faster than other people.

11. Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

When it comes to work ethic and working efficiently, Capricorns are some of the hardest-working people you will ever meet. They are driven and ambitious, and they are often described as being “all work and no play.” They are true work horses and the thought of being lazy never enters their mind. In fact, many Capricorns feel that laziness is a sign of weakness.

12. Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sep. 22)

Virgos are the least-lazy zodiac sign, in part because they want everything they do to be done absolutely perfect. Although this perfectionism may drive their family and friends crazy, their bosses tend to love this characteristic. They are also very detail-oriented, which causes them to work very hard regardless of the complexity of the task.


Even though we listed Sagittarius as the laziest and Virgo as the least lazy, remember that there are always exceptions. Our sun sign could absolutely influence our behavior and have it’s effect on laziness, just remember that there’s no exact science to it. By comparing traits and typical habits, you can however come up with a list like ours.

Remember that we not only have a sun sign, but also a moon sign. And even a rising sign. How much of an effect doe they have on someone? A good question to be asking yourself. If you’d like to learn more, head on over to our article called “sun vs moon vs rising sign“.
