About 1 in 3 people have experienced at least mild insomnia. If you don’t know what insomnia is, it’s the inability to sleep or the feeling of not having gotten enough sleep. Things like anxiety, stress, depression, anger, and worry can all contribute to insomnia. And let’s face it, life can be pretty stressful sometimes.

In most cases, insomnia can be easily treated. However, there are those who suffer from chronic insomnia, which can be more of a challenge to treat. Chronic insomnia causes its victims to be unproductive, careless, depressed or anxious, and can even lead to a number of health problems including memory loss.

Even if you yourself don’t suffer from insomnia, it’s good to know the signs and causes so that you can bring awareness to people who have it and may not even know it. And sometimes, your horoscope can offer some insight into sleeping better.

If you study astrology, there’s a lot you can learn about the sleeping patterns of those around you. Here are the biggest insomniac zodiac signs, ranked from most to least.

1. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

There isn’t a single minute during the day where your mind isn’t thinking about something. A Gemini's brain is always in overdrive, sometimes making it hard for you to relax and stay still. Because you’re so mentally active, you prefer to sleep only when you absolutely have to.

Sometimes it can take days before you decide you want to sleep, and at that point you’re already restless. For you, sleep is an inconvenience and you’d rather spend that time researching something or obsessing over an interest of yours.

2. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

As a Virgo, you have a chronic habit of overthinking and being too critical of yourself. This leaves you feeling stressed all the time, making it almost impossible for you to get a good night’s worth of rest.

Not only do you tend to overthink, but you’re also very career-focused and always thinking about your job. Sometimes you’ll even have nightmares about work, causing even more anxiety and worry for you. For you to be the most productive, it’s critical that you have a good sleep schedule.

3. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

It’s hard for you to feel completely awake during the day. Work is your biggest priority in life. Sometimes your job requires you to travel and take trips, which leaves you with less time to sleep. In fact, your sleep schedule is so inconsistent that when you do sleep, you usually end up having nightmares.

Not only is it your busy work schedule that keeps you from getting good sleep, but you, Cancer, have a habit of dwelling in your thoughts and insecurities before bed. By doing this, you’re causing yourself to be restless before you’ve even slept.

4. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries are prone to mental illness such as depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder. Unfortunately, this makes sleeping a challenge for you.

Not only does your state of mind play a role in your sleeping patterns, but you’re also very hyperactive. You have a lot of energy, and if that energy doesn’t get burned out by the end of the day, you’ll lay in bed and stare at the ceiling for hours, trying to force yourself to go to sleep.

5. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Being an Aquarius, you’re an intellectual who likes to think deeply and analytically. You love to be mentally stimulated and will stay up for hours during the night pondering the same topic.

Have you ever been told that reading before bed will make you restless? Well, in your case that’s certainly true. If you’re not reading, you’re using some sort of technology to entertain your mind. This leaves you feeling uncomfortable and antsy when you do try to go to bed.

6. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Out of all the zodiac signs, Pisces needs the most sleep. You’re open-minded and receptive, and this can cause you to be easily drained by other people. You’re also fearful by nature, and sometimes unable to relax and let go of any worries you might have.

This makes you easily prone to nightmares and other sleeping disturbances like sleep paralysis. For there to be any chance of you obtaining good sleep, you need to let go of your stresses and make sure your body isn’t so tense before you go to bed.

7. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

It’s pretty natural for a Sagittarius to feel exhausted by the end of the day. You’re always on the go and like to have something adventurous planned. People might say you’re a night owl because you like to be out late doing something exciting and ambitious.

You can survive off of minimal sleep, but eventually it will catch up to you. Your sleep schedule is usually inconsistent because you like to sleep during the day and socialize at nighttime.

8. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

A Scorpio’s sleep usually depends on their mood. For example, if you’re dealing with stress and anxiety, you’ll become very hyper-insomniac and will need lots of rest to restore your energy. However, if you’re feeling inspired and lifted, you’ll sleep even less and focus more on the things that interest you, sometimes even obsessing over them with minimal sleep.

Either way, you’re still left feeling restless the next day. Having healthy habits will increase your chances of getting better sleep, such as getting enough exercise and eating lots of fruits and veggies.

9. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Having a balanced life is very important to you as a Libra. However, your sleeping habits might say otherwise. You either get enough sleep and can go days surviving on just minimal rest, or you either don’t get enough sleep and will spend days in bed.

Even though you’re more grounded than other signs, having balanced sleeping patterns will improve your mental health in more ways than you think.

10. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

You love to sleep, Capricorn. You appreciate your 8 hours of rest and take your sleep schedule very seriously. You need enough sleep to be productive and motivated.

You’re always trying to better your life and your health because when you’re feeling stressed out that’s when insomnia hits you hard. But more often than not, you’re consistent with your sleep and don’t have many things to worry about.

11. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Getting a Taurus out of bed is one of the most difficult things to do. You genuinely enjoy sleeping and could sleep all day if you had the chance. When you’re bored, you’ll cover yourself in cozy blankets and take naps.

You’re sensitive to your surroundings, and only enjoy sleeping in your home or someplace where you feel comfortable. If you’re sleeping somewhere that’s unfamiliar to you, this is how insomnia can become apparent.

12. LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Sleep is one of those things that’s just effortless for Leo. This is partly due to you being a back sleeper, which makes it easier for you to drift off more quickly.

You also like to sleep with a loved one by your side, preferably a big fluffy cat. You hardly experience nightmares, and even after a stressful day you can count on your bed to give you the comfort you need.
