We all need alone time.
Even the most extroverted person out there benefits from having a few minutes to themselves, whether it’s a relaxing bath, spending a night watching TV alone at home, or taking long walks in the morning.
We all do it differently, but we all need it.
The following signs, though? They need a lot more alone time than others.
Whether they’re on their own because they can’t stand other people’s company for long; because they want time to improve themselves or just because they feel like it…
Obstinated, prideful, and inspiring, Leos aspire to be perfect or at least appear perfect, which means they need plenty of alone time to practice their craft.
Isolation for isolation’s sake may not be Leo’s cup-of-tea, but they know well how to take advantage of any extra time they might have to improve themselves and learn new skills.
Though Tauruses tend to enjoy human contact, this sign is renowned for its laziness, which means that Taurus individuals may like hanging out with others, but aren’t wild about the effort it takes.
Sometimes, they’ll cancel appointments or change plans at the last minute, but where their need for their own time really shines through is when they’re getting ready to go out.
They don’t like to be rushed. They like to take their time and do things in a way they’ll enjoy, so Tauruses tend to take a long, long while to get ready.
It might be annoying to others, but it’s the kind of thing Taurus enjoys.
Loners by nature, Libra loves spending time on their own. In part, because they want to spoil themselves, in part because they just don’t like people.
Libras know that socializing may be fun, but it’s also a performance. They need to consider other people’s wants, adapt to what the group wants, and sometimes even do things they don’t feel like doing so that everyone can have fun.
Thus, Libras really like it when they get to be on their own.
No one knows what Libra likes better than Libra, so their alone time is especially valuable.
Stubborn and strong-willed, Arieses may be social individuals, but only when they do what they want to do.
Because of this, Aries may enjoy hanging out with others but will need plenty of time on their own, where they get to do their own thing, just the way they like it.
Aries individuals can be social, but they still feel socially burned-out after a while, which means alone time is more than just Aries being bossy. It’s also about recharging their energy.
One of the most independent zodiac signs out there, it’s no wonder that Sagittarius made it to this list.
Used to leading and doing things by themselves, Sagittarians don’t mind sharing their space and the spotlight with others, but only on their terms.
The thing about Sagittarians is that they love being on their own, but tend not to realize it until they’re with someone. Once the bliss and novelty of the company end, Sagittarius will demand their personal space, often out of the blue, leaving friends and partners very confused.
Always changing their minds, Geminis enjoy spending time on their own, until they don’t; Then, they enjoy hanging out with others, until that too becomes too much to deal with.
Gemini tends to have problems keeping up with appointments, committing to dates, attending engagements, and doing things regardless of their state of mind, which means they often find themselves alone.
Just as well. Being alone is a lot easier than dealing with people sometimes.
