Astrology gives us the traits that drive our personalities and behaviors. They determine our ambitions (or lack thereof) and how we conduct our lives.
While your mileage may vary according to your specific birth chart, cusps, etc., here is a general horoscope showing which zodiac signs are early birds, night owls or something else entirely!
Aries strive to be the first at everything, and being the first out of bed is no exception. Aries doesn’t want anyone having even the slightest chance of beating them to or at something – so they are up before the sun rises. Aries lives by the motto: “If you snooze you lose.”
Taurus is a practical and hard-working sort, who likes to get up and get things done, clearing their way for the rest of the day to enjoy sensual pursuits! They have their late nights, but mostly maintain a schedule focused on being an early riser.
Gemini loves to get together with people, but as most of the world is busy working during the daylight hours, the time for socializing comes in the afternoon or evening. Gemini is a chatty night owl that keeps hooting it up into the wee hours of the morning!
Being home and family-oriented, caring Cancer is an earlybird that is up hours before everyone else, preparing a variety of things necessary and taking care of the needs of others. They live by the motto: “Early to bed early to rise.”
Leo is ready to do whatever, whenever. Mostly they want a sense of accomplishment, as well as a chance to be in the spotlight. They adapt to whatever needs to happen. If they need to be an earlybird, they’ll do that. If it takes being a night owl, they’ll do that too. If they have to sacrifice sleep, so be it.
Virgo is the personification of the saying the “early bird gets the worm.” Virgo is “up and at ’em” long before everyone else, always the first to arrive, always making sure everything is getting taken care of to perfection.
Libra is constantly juggling to balance their life between the requirements of a daytime career and a robust nightlife. Libra enjoys people and has a very flirtatious side. Libra is also prone to self-indulgence, living like a night owl, and then struggling painfully the next morning when they are forced to be an earlybird!
Scorpio can be an earlybird when required, but mostly they prefer being a night owl. Scorpio is a passionate person and the things they enjoy happen at night, such as candlelit dinners, cozy cocktails, and sexy sizzling music!
While the time to have a good time is any time for Sagittarius, they enjoy the fun that happens after dark the most. Frequently the last person standing, their robust endurance definitely makes them a night owl!
If they could get away with it, Capricorn wouldn’t sleep. They have goal after goal, and can’t wait to spring out of bed first thing in the morning to get started toward achieving their aims.
Being an innovator and original thinker doesn’t come easily – it’s hard work. Sometimes Aquarius burns the midnight oil and other times it requires being in earlybird. Flexibility is crucial, as inventiveness knows no schedule.
Pisces is the creative type and creativity does not exist on a schedule. Pisces attacks whatever creative endeavor they are engaged in whenever the inspiration strikes them – it could be 7 AM, noon or three in the morning.
