Zodiac Sign Risk Taker

Everyone takes risks. Sometimes they’re small risks — like entering a packed subway as the doors are closing, other times, the risks are larger, like dropping everything and moving to a new city all by yourself.

When you take a well-calculated risk where the benefits outweigh the costs, then it can become a potentially smart decision.

But sometimes, people don’t take calculated risks. Some people’s risk-taking borders on being reckless and impulsive — they just LOVE the adrenaline rush that comes from being close to danger, and can't get enough of the thrill of doing something that may yield unknown consequences.

If you’re someone who enjoys taking risks, your friends might consider you reckless or an adrenaline junkie, but taking too many risks can make you come across as hasty or irresponsible to your friends and family — sometimes putting your best relationships at risk.

Some studies say that risk takers are smarter than those who don’t take risks, but that doesn’t necessarily mean taking a big risk is the best decision.

Read below to see what the stars have to say about which zodiac signs are most likely to take a chance with danger, whether or not this is a good thing.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)


A Gemini is very inconsistent with her decisions. She may sometimes act hastily when trying to settle on something, and if she doesn’t know which decision to make, she might just say “eff it” and go with the riskier option.

For example, if she is very dissatisfied with her current job or living situation, she might just drop everything and make an unexpected move to a new city

It might be a pretty risky decision, but a Gemini is flexible and willing to take risks in order to get what she wants.

If this is you: It’s good to take risks and make decisions that can lead you to new places, but remember to also carefully think through your decisions. Acting hastily can lead to bad consequences if you’re not careful.

When it comes to her leisure time, she is likely to pursue adrenaline-filled activities like motorcycle riding or bungee jumping. She loves the thrill of choosing the riskier path.

If this is you: Being daring will surely reap rewards for you, but remember to also do things in moderation. Taking risks can sometimes be dangerous and it’s important to recognize when the risks aren’t worth it.

If this is you: Your desire for adventure is admirable, but risks aren’t always worth it. Some things seem fun in the moment, but they can also turn into bad decisions if you’re not cautious enough.
