Is staying in one place or doing the same thing day after day the definition of death for you? Are you one of the restless zodiac signs who thrives on new experiences, ideas, dreams, people, places, and even horoscopes?

Being someone who is restless has a lot to do with astrology. Some zodiac signs have all the qualities that nurture that kind of restless nature. They’re more interested in the journey than the destination, and they’re at their happiest when they’re changing and moving.


Restlessness isn’t always about traveling; it can also be about making new friends all the time, changing jobs, starting new projects, or constantly putting their focus in multiple places. People who are restless don’t like to be locked down or have a strict plan. They need to be able to follow wherever their heart takes them. They’re open to taking a new road, going in a different direction from the pack, and trusting their instincts.

People who are restless are deep thinkers. They’re creative, think outside the box, and know that they’ll never discover all the world has to offer, but that doesn't mean they’ll give up trying. They’re not interested nor can they handle routine. They don’t follow schedules or other people’s agendas if they can help it; they want to be free to do their own thing.


1. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius individuals are constantly coming up with new ideas and new ways of doing things. They tend to have multiple projects going at one time. Aquarius have a deep-seated knowledge that they're special and they don't like to be held down by rules and convention.

If left to do their own thing, not only will Aquarius benefit, but so will the world. If an Aquarius isn't allowed to roam, change and grow, they become stagnant and their creativity will not grow. Aquarians need to break up their routine and see something new or they won't thrive.
