5 Laziest Zodiac Signs Ranked from Laziest to Hard Working

You get lazy, and then you get laaaaaaaaazy!! Some women tell their men to get a job, while others tell their children to get out of the house and be productive. Laziness often pertains to the Zodiac sign you fall into. Know someone who’s very lazy, or maybe you’re lazy yourself? Well, here’s the laziest Zodiac signs and the hardest working signs.

What is the Laziest Zodiac Sign?

Taurus is, by far, the laziest zodiac sign. They’re really practical and hard-working, however they’re ruled by Venus which is all about pleasure – and that’s all that Taurus really wants! They’ll work forever, because they love money, but they’d rather be sipping a cocktail on a beach!

What is the Most Hardworking Zodiac Sign?

Virgo is the least lazy zodiac sign. This is because it rules the 6th house of every day work. They are ruled by Mercury, so their minds never stop ticking. They have a nervous energy that they have to let out, all the time, through hard work.

Zodiac Signs Ranked from Laziest to Hardest Working

  1. Taurus
  2. Cancer
  3. Sagittarius
  4. Capricorn
  5. Virgo

1. Taurus 

As mentioned above, Taurus is the laziest sign of all, and notably so! You see, Venus rules this sign – and the senses. So Taurus’ perfect life is waking up to a sunny day, spending time in the garden, picking some fruit, and smelling the roses.

They then want a sumptuous meal that looks, smells and tastes good, followed by an activity they enjoy, such as sculpting. Ending off the day with a glass of wine, or whiskey, and making love to someone they find sensual and attractive makes for their perfect scenario.

However, money and security is the most important thing to them, so they will work hard – but only because it puts “bread” on the table, and allows them to buy all the material things they enjoy so much! 

Hang around enough Taureans, and you will always hear them say, “I own this,” or “I own that.” Material objects are essential to their existence and that’s what always pulls them out of laziness.

2. Cancer

Cancer isn’t so much a lazy sign, they just appear lazy, as they don’t want to leave their homes, and prefer taking care of their family. They love just staying at home, nurturing others, being nurtured by others, and cooking food.

The Moon rules Cancer, and just like its different phases, so do Cancerians’ moods go up and down, like a rollercoaster. For this reason, they often just want to stay at home, do nothing, and wallow in their sadness and emotions.

Don’t get it wrong though, some Cancerians are great with work – especially if it revolves around finance. They just have to find their niche that pulls them into a comfortable enough space to get up and work every day in a manner that suits them, according to their own time, as they need to digest information at their own pace.

3. Sagittarius 

Some people may be on the fence when describing Sagittarians as lazy. After all, they’re independent, adventurous, and enjoy traveling and educating themselves. However, they are ruled by Jupiter, the biggest planet of all where there are just no boundaries.

Sagittarius is represented by a centaur, and centaurs were associated with going wild, being raucous and drinking wine. Many Sagittarians just want to be philosophers, smoke recreational drugs, travel the world and read books. They’re not interested in working, especially in an office environment. 

You do get the hard workers though, those that work in nature or media houses, universities or religious institutions that have found their calling. On the other hand, you will find many lazy Sagittarians just sitting by the beach with their surfboards who show no interest in work for pay.

4. Capricorn 

Now, we get to one of the hardest working signs of the Zodiac – Capricorn. Remember, Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, constricted by surrounding rings, also known as Cronus, “Father Time,” in Greek Mythology.

Capricorn knows all about hard work, discipline, organization and structure – they are kings and queens of it! Their sign rules the 10th house of career, and they are pure ambition, ambition, ambition. The 10th house is also associated with the “father,” which typically (especially looking at decades ago) brings most of the money to the table!

If a Capricorn falls down, they will get up again and move further up the ladder of success. If they fall down again, they will learn from their mistakes and persevere. Very rarely will you find a lazy Capricorn – unless their sun is severely afflicted in their Natal chart.

5. Virgo

Mentioned earlier, Virgos are the hardest working Zodiac sign of all. They do indeed rule the 6th house of every day work, and the purpose of their soul is to serve. Some of the most dedicated performers of all time are, or have been, Virgos. Just take a look at the late Michael Jackson, born 29 August 1958, and Beyoncé, born 4 September 1981. 

Ruled by Mercury, Virgos are too anxious not to get their work done and make it perfect. They will never execute work that has flaws. For this reason, they often work longer hours than other Zodiac signs.

One of the only other Zodiac signs that understands their dedication to hard work is fellow Earth sign, Capricorn. Together, they make a formidable pair at work, where Capricorn should lead, structure, organize and delegate, while Virgo should serve and perfect.

Whether you, or someone you know, is a Taurus, Cancer or Sagittarius, and appears lazy; or is a Virgo or Capricorn, and can’t seem to get out of the office, all people find their strength in a work environment where they are able to show off their gifts, skills and talents, and are appreciated for them. 

Just remember to tell those signs, especially the lazy ones, “great job!” at the end of each day, and watch them become more and more productive. They will then appreciate their own hard work, and will eventually stop being so lazy!
