If you try not to rely on others and have a life outside of what their horoscope says, then chances are you're more independent than most.

Some zodiac signs are born independent and have always thought for themselves.

They stand by their actions, their thoughts, and their beliefs and don’t feel the need to adapt or change just to please other people.
