Personality Traits That Affect Your Time Management Skill, Per Astrology By Zodiac Sign

Zodiac Signs, Horoscopes

It's not hopeless for everyone but you will have to work on those zodiac personality traits!

Some people are always on time. 

They arrive early to meetings with a cup of coffee on hand, are seldom, if never late. They manage their time well, and have the watch to prove it.

They are the people you can say have great time management skills. Their Type A personalities make the people who struggle with time management a little bit jealous. 

Perhaps there's some hidden DNA trait found in people with a great sense of time management, but some might say this is a personality trait you're either born with or without.

True, there are zodiac signs who possess by virtue of their natal horoscopes, a greater awareness of time and this could be connected to their ruling planet in astrology.

However, your view is on astrology, there's one fact that we can all agree on: time management is important and everyone can improve theirs if they choose to do so, (or so it would seem).

Time management is a process and some people no matter how hard they try simply cannot manage their time well enough — they try, they fail; it's a true struggle. 

True, being a good time manager of your time is something the average person typically learns in way before college or their first full-time job.

But lots of successful people struggle in this arena, and that doesn't make them bad people. Everything in life involves some form of time management. From what time you go to bed to the time you do your laundry, time is managed and so you have to work on developing the skill.

Maybe fitting in your time management style by zodiac signs personality trait can shine some light on this issue. For most people it’s not an easy skill, so don’t feel inadequate if you’re well into your 30s and still haven’t mastered making time for cleaning your house this weekend, while making it to both of your kids’ practices and still having time to cook dinner and watch the Grammys on Sunday.

This may seem pretty simple but time management comes down to three things: patience, priorities and procrastination. Needless to say it’s easier said than done but here’s why these are the keys to successful time management.

If you have patience, you’ll learn to do two things: focus on the task at hand and pace yourself. Both of those skills inevitably will make you more efficient.

Once you master focusing, the distractions (no matter how distracting they are) that used to make you waste time will no longer be a factor.

Once you learn to pace yourself you’ll work as fast as you need to because it won’t be a question mark as to how quickly you need to complete a certain task.

If you prioritize and don’t procrastinate, such as doing things sooner that have a closer deadline you’ll be golden. Besides being a student and being able to tell your friends that you prepared for a test last minute and still aced it there’s no true benefit of waiting until the last minute to do something.

You’ll realize that the more times you get flustered from waiting until the midnight hour to work on a task you’ve had for weeks. Your decisions will come down to what’s more important between scrolling on Instagram and meeting a deadline, and you’ll act accordingly. Time management is meant to help you, not destroy your life or strip you away from fun.

How good (or terrible) you are with time management? Let's see how you match up with our ranking of the zodiac signs in astrology and their time management skills!

Do you try to be on time, but make no promises? According to a Pinterest post that’s what Taurus’ and Geminis do. In my opinion (not because I’m a Taurus), you have to respect the effort of at least trying to be on time even if you don’t always make the cutoff.


TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

As a Taurus myself, I try to always be at least a few minutes early to anywhere I go, or worst case scenario, be on time. However that’s not always the case, but we get an E for effort right? If so, in the grand scheme of things, our lateness isn't too bad. After all, usually we're not too late.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Like Taurus’ Geminis try to be punctual as well and will gladly accept Es for effort. However, for the times that they don't make it to their destinations on time, ask yourself this: Are you always on time? If not, then let's be understanding.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Do you consider yourself to be somewhat of a philosopher, and answer a question with a question? Then when people ask you why you were late you probably answer with a question asking what time is and if it’s even real? There's a reason why you are often a time manager at your own pace and requirements. You've got too much on your mind and sometimes you can let time escape you when you're thinking too much.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Like Aquarius’ you have to appreciate the art of sarcasm to respond the way that you typically do when someone asks you why you’re late. You might imply that time might be an illusion. There's few people that can pull off being fashionably late or super on time the way that you do. Respect for all that you do, Waterbearer.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Some people are more of a stickler than others when it comes to being on time. If you are a Virgo then you are one of those people. When it comes to being on time, you not only try to get there early, you're likely to be texting everyone else to make sure they didn't forget that important business meeting.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpios also take being on time very seriously. Whether it’s avoiding the embarrassment of being late, or you just want to make a good impression on people, this is you. You are the time manger that others are jealous of and we wish you would bring us a cup of coffee the next time you show up ready to impress with a cup in hand.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Much like Virgos and Scorpios, Capricorns stress being punctual as well, even so much that you guys typically get to your destination an hour earlier than you need to be. Better too early than too late am I right? At least most people would think so, certainly including Capricorns.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancers are part of this bunch as well, who like showing up early just to be on the safe side of things. I don’t know about you but if I ever have to go under the knife for anything I’m hoping the head surgeon is either a Capricorn or Cancer. This way they over prepare instead of under prepare.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leos (with all due respect) may not even try to be punctual at times. You guys are known for being fashionably late. The funny thing is all I can think of when someone purposely is fashionably late is that Kanye West song Stronger where he says people should be honored by his lateness that he would even show up to that fake s**t.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Typically Libras are also fashionably late, I just hope you guys put the emphasis on that first word and are fashionable. I guess there's some logic in the phrase because if your outfit is on point it may distract some in the room that you're 45 minutes late for something. If so one must give credit where credit is due, in my opinion.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius’ are known for being super late as well. These are the family members that you have to give an early departure time to when you’re going over your uncle’s house for Thanksgiving. Trust me. Otherwise you would never be on time if you didn’t do such things.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Lastly (no pun intended), Aries are also known for being late to everything. Therefore it's best to just accept these people for who they are. However if you still would like to stress being on time in hopes of changing them, then do the trick I mentioned above where you tell them early times to be ready for something.
