Here are your annoying roommate habits based on your zodiac sign, according to astrology:

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Least compatible roommate: Gemini

You like taking on leadership roles and taking charge of any situation. These are good qualities to have to keep yourself motivated but your “go get em “ attitude may be too much when you start applying it to your roommates. You are the chore enforcer at your house and the rule maker which can sometimes come across as naggy and domineering.

It’s good to keep a schedule but you don't have to be super impatient and strict about it. And although you can't stand inactivity and passive behavior, it is important to keep in mind that it's not the end of the world if a few dishes are still in the sink or the trash hasn't been taken out yet. Remember to be friends and peers with your roommates, not their mom.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Least compatible roommate: Libra

You like to have order in your life and when you don't have order, you can get very anxious. Any site of clutter or disorganization may set you off and this could be very off-putting for your roommates.

Your need for simplicity and functionality may clash with someone with more chaotic decorating traits and your stubbornness causes you to butt heads a lot with your roommates.

Taurus tend to be self-indulgent and lazy, meaning you often procrastinate on your shared house duties and can be stingy with your possessions. You do however have great determination and focus so it's important for you to keep in mind that a healthy cohabitation space benefits you as much as it does your roommates. 

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Least compatible roommate: Virgo

Your impulsive and restless nature does not like repetition and routine so it’ll be hard for you to keep to the house rules. You are extremely indecisive and inconsistent with the choices you make, which can be very frustrating for your roommates when you make plans with them.

You can be quite the chatterbox when you get going which could irritate your more reserved roommates. If your roommates often escape to the library to get some peace and quiet, you may be the cause. Remember to factor in your roommate's responsibilities and schedule when you are making decisions and taking action that affects the both of you.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Least compatible roommate: Scorpio

You are very emotional and can go through a range of feelings in a single day. Your constant mood shifts might make your roommates uncomfortable and overly cautious when engaging with you.

Your insecurities and oversensitive nature make it hard for your roommates to joke around with you and they may feel that they have to censor what they say around you, in case you take it personally. You cherish your friendships and want to spend a lot of time with the people you care about but sometimes that comes off as clingy.

You like to be around people who will supply you with a ton of support and encouragement but keep in mind that your roommates have problems and lives of their own and you should respect their need to vent as much as yours. Also, recognize that light teasing and joking is a means to friendship and is not a personal attack on you, your roommates will appreciate your sense of humor and loving nature if you let them.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Least compatible roommate: Taurus

You are a bold, attention seeker who loves being outgoing and meeting new people. You crave recognition and admiration and you take the party with you everywhere you go.

Late night visitors and excessive noise may not bother you but for your roommates, it can be a very obnoxious pastime. You have a zest for life and an infectious enthusiasm but your arrogant tendencies and large ego make it difficult for your roommates to feel like they can confide in you.

It’s important to remember that your roommates aren't your own personal audience or fans, they are your peers and you should try to share the spotlight with them. You’re a great host so throwing parties and gatherings at your shared space should be something that is enjoyable for both you and your roommates.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Least compatible roommate: Leo

You have a very analytical mind and need to know all the details before you make any decisions. You have a tendency for worrying about the smallest details and being overly critical of yourself and others.

When things don’t work out exactly how you envisioned you are prone to major anxiety which can really stress out your roommates. You dwell a lot on the past and have a difficult time letting trivial things go.

So constantly bringing up former household aggravations will not only isolate you from your roommates it will also make for very uncomfortable daily interactions. You are a logical thinker so take the time to rationally reflect on your feelings before your angsty behavior draws a wedge between you and your roommates.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Least compatible roommate: Cancer

You are very level headed and have a keen sense of justice, and are always trying to maintain harmony and balance. Your eager-to-please, easygoing nature sometimes makes you susceptible to being taken advantage of by friends and you get easily burned out by trying to please everyone all the time.

You have a reputation for being indecisive and that may stem from your fear of making a wrong decision that will cause turmoil in your life and the lives of others. Your uncertainty might come off as being flaky to your roommates if every time you make plans with them you change your mind at the last minute.

You are emotionally wound up and when it all boils to the surface your roommates might be the target of your frustrations. It’s not your job to make everybody happy and it’s ok to take time for yourself— a happy healthier you will result in a more gratifying cohabitation experience.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Least compatible roommate: Aries

You like to be in control and you are extremely ambitious, persistent and determined. You are very independent and perfectly suited to being on your own which actually may be the best living arrangement for you.

When you live with others you tend to be suspicious of your roommate's motives and like to govern the household. You never forget an act of betrayal or deception and can hold a grudge forever.

You show your emotions through a series of extremes and it can be difficult for others to keep up with you. Your secretiveness and ability to dominate and control anyone who will let you, makes you seem manipulative. Your roommates will warm up to you a lot easier if you opened up to them more and realized you don’t have authority over every situation.


SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Least compatible roommate: Virgo

You are a straightforward individual with extremely inflexible views. You always look to the positive side of any situation, with a perpetual optimism that can sometimes be more of a nuisance than a comfort for you roommates who just need a good rant.

Your free-spirited, restless attitude means you are rarely at home and your roommates may start to feel like you never keep up with your share of the chores because you're too busy engaging in different activities and going on adventures.

You rarely weigh the pros and cons of your actions and you often make promises you can't keep, which can be risky when rent is due every month. Learning to prioritize your responsibilities while still being able to maintain an active lifestyle will prove extremely beneficial for you when you live with others.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Least compatible roommate: Sagittarius

No one can tell you what to do, you are very stubborn and a bit of a know-it-all. You have a practical and serious way of dealing with things and you prefer when others around you do the same.

Your dictatorial nature can come off as condescending to your roommates especially when you try to impose your convictions on them. According to you, there is only a right way and a wrong way to do things and this idea makes you appear closed-minded and boring to your roommates.

It’s important to keep in mind that there is more than one way of doing things and you should allow your roommates to do things their own unique way. You are extremely responsible and would never forget to pay your rent on time, but this might not be the case for your more absent-minded housemates so remember not to berate them for it.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Least compatible roommate: Scorpio

You can be very aloof at times and although you are likable and often surrounded by people, you tend to isolate yourself from others and it can be hard for you to make true friends.

Your roommates might take you as antisocial because of your loner mentality. You are very independent and rarely go along with the crowd but in order to form a healthy relationship with your roommates, you should make more of an effort to do group activities, even if all you want to do is read a book alone in your room.

You can be hard to read so your roommates might take you for unemotional and lacking empathy. Be sure to speak up more and engage in conversation so your roommates know you are interested in their lives and getting to know them.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Least compatible roommate: Capricorn

You are a daydreamer with very artistic and creative interest. You tend to live in your own imaginary world which can be frustrating for your roommates who are dealing with real-life issues facing the household.

If something is broken and needs to be repaired you are the last person to do anything about it or to even notice. When faced with harsh realities you prefer to retreat further into your world and leave your roommates to deal with the problem.

Your constant need to escape reality means you are more prone to excessive substance usage which can become a problem for your roommates who may not want that sort of behavior in the house. Instead of running away from your problems try to find a creative, productive way to deal with it.

The nice thing about having roommates is you always have others by your side who you can collaborate with to find a solution that works for everyone.
