Adults Who Still Live With Their Parents Vs. The Zodiac Signs Who Move Out First Chance They Get

Adults Who Still Live With Their Parents Vs. The Zodiac Signs Who Move Out First Chance They Get
Family, Self

Some zodiac signs just need more time before spreading their wings to fly.

Living at home with your parents might sound lame to some of your friends, but while they’re struggling to balance paying student loans and their bills, all while making sure they have enough money left over from their paycheck for food, you can tuck a lot of your money right into a savings account for yourself.

If being able to afford a nicer house and feel more financially secure means living at your parents’ house for a little longer, then I say go for it.

Of course, there are some parents who won’t see the benefit to you staying at home later in life after you've become an adult — as in one case where a 30-year-old man was sued by his parents so that he would move out. Yikes.

How old is too old when it comes to moving out of your parents’ house? Is there even such a thing? Probably, yes.

But even if your parents aren’t kicking you out right away, you probably feel like there is a right time to pack up and move out… eventually.

Some of us move out as soon as we get a chance. Others are totally fine with living at their parents’ house for as long as possible.

The horoscopes who are more family-oriented tend to be the ones who stick around a lot longer than the zodiac signs who are more independent.

This could be for a lot of reasons, but most commonly is that it’s comfortable. Why leave when everything you could ask for – family, all of your belongings, home cooked meals every night – is right here?

I don’t know about you, but I love my privacy and independence. Living on my own just means I get both things all the time. Of course, I also lived in a house where my parents were known for knocking after they came into my room, so maybe I’m a little biased.

That said, there are some good reasons to live with your parents for a little while instead of leaving right away. One is that you’re saving money – and lots of it.

Paying for rent, utilities, and groceries is no joke. And if you move out young, you’re not really giving yourself enough time or money to make it on your own comfortably.

But it’s not just him – about one-third of millennials still live with their parents, whether they want to or not. And honestly, that makes sense.

With the amount of money you have to pay in rent, student loans, and whatever other kinds of bills you’re responsible for, most millennials can’t move out – it’s just too damn expensive now.

Plus, getting a job that can fully support you is almost impossible at first. Minimum wage jobs aren't able to do that and you need years of experience just to get a job with a decent paycheck.

It’s not because we're lazy, unmotivated, or entitled – it’s because we just can’t. Heck, I think about moving back home maybe once a month because I always feel like my money is being snatched out of my bank account for something.

But, according to astrology, money isn’t the only reason why some zodiac signs prefer to live at home or why other zodiac signs choose to move out first chance they get. To find out how long your zodiac sign is likely to live with your parents, keep reading below.


1. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus, you're not the kind of person to move out of your parents' house as soon as you can. Being at home means ultimate comfort to you – and as long as your parents aren't kicking you out of the house, you're most likely to live at home until you're 50... or at least until you're significantly older than all of the rest of the people your age.

You love the comfort that living at home means. All of your things are already at home, you don't have to worry about having a terrible roommate stealing all of the hot water, and you can have homemade meals whenever you want! Why would you leave? Of course, while you would call this sweet set-up comfortable and convenient, a lot of people see it as lazy or irresponsible – but what do they know?! You're livin' it up at home.


2. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer, you also don't care what people think of you still living at home with your parents. In fact, you're the zodiac sign who has the best relationship with their parents, so you don't really see anything wrong with living at home, as long as it means that you get to spend some quality time with your family. You'll have more than enough time to live alone, so why not enjoy family time while you can?

Plus, there's something about having the opportunity to talk to your parents whenever you need advice that you don't want to give up. You like the fact that you can have such a tightknit family that no one expects you to up and leave the first chance you get because that's just how it is. Living at home is perfect for you because it strengthens your relationship with your family and you really do think of your parents as friends.


3. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn, you might be more mature than most of the other zodiac signs, but that doesn't mean you're dumb. You have everything you need to just pick up and leave as soon as you can, but you know that that's not always the smartest thing to do. While all of your friends are bragging about moving out of their parents' house and into some crappy apartment they can barely afford, you're saving your money for something better.

You know that if you stay at home for a little bit longer than everyone else and save your money, you can live somewhere you actually like and not have to worry about running out of money after a few months. Moving out means being responsible, and you know that nothing good comes from rushing into things. So, you'll start saving up for what you really want in life while you're living with your parents, thank you very much.

4. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces, you'd love to be an adult and move out of your parents' place the first chance you get. But let's face it, you kind of like being taken care of by your parents. That doesn't necessarily mean that you want them to provide for you and pay for everything, but it does mean letting them take the reins on the more grown-up stuff so that you can still enjoy life without all the added stress.

You like the thought of living at home with your parents for a long time because you have so many memories and good time in that house while you were growing up that the thought of having to move on kind of scares you. Sure, you'll be able to come back during holidays and when you feel homesick, but you also like knowing that traditions never change at home – and that there's no rule saying you have to move out at all.


 

5. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libra, you are in no rush to move out of your parents’ house, but you also know that there’s a timeline for the amount of time you can comfortably live at home before you need to move on. You know that you’ll eventually need to find your own place to live, but the thought of having to live alone or with a roommate you may or may not like keeps you from looking too hard.

You like living at home with your parents because you like the company. You don’t mind meeting new people and you’re definitely not against rooming with your BFF, but there’s also something nice in living with your family. Like I said, you’re in no rush to move out, but you also can’t deny that you would love the privacy and independence that comes with living alone.


6. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini, you really, really want to be an adult and live on your own. However, you can sometimes make impulsive decisions that sound great in the moment but aren’t actually good for you in the long run. Just because your friends suggest rooming together doesn’t mean you have to move in with them. Sure, late nights partying and drinking might sound nice now, but it might not sound so fun after the tenth weekend in a row.

You are one of those people who will change their mind over and over until you finally settle into something you’re (mostly) comfortable with. You might decide that you’re happy living at home for one week and then decide to move in with your BFF the next. And then once you’ve been there for a few months, you might decide you need home cooked meals and family time before you realize you’re cramped living with your parents and need to move out again. It’s exhausting but that won’t stop you from flip-flopping around!

7. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo, you’re not one of those zodiac signs who has been dreaming of the day you get to move out of your parents’ house, but when the time comes, you are ready to move on. You are very resourceful, which means you don’t move out and start being your own person just because you’ve been given the green light.

Before you move out, you make sure that you have a good job that will be able to support you and a plan for living on your own. You don’t like doing anything blindly, especially something that could impact your future. That means making sure that your list is completely checked off before making a move. You also know that there’s no reason to get clingy and stay at home because you can always visit when you’re homesick.


8. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries, you are one of the more mature zodiac signs of astrology, so when it comes time for you to move out of your parents’ house, you’re totally confident in yourself. You know that you can take care of yourself without a problem, so there’s no reason to stay at home and let your parents take care of you.

You know there’s nothing you can’t accomplish when you put your mind to something, so moving out of your parents’ house and living on your own is just another challenge for you to achieve. Whether you decide to travel first and get a job later, or you want to work for a while before saving up for some fun later on, once you move out, you know that the world is your oyster and you can’t wait to experience it.


9. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpio, the world is your oyster. And you can't wait until you get to experience that oyster. You might not be tapping your foot waiting for the day when you can finally get out of your parents' house, but you're certainly not wasting your time at home, either. You are one of those mature zodiac signs who is wise beyond their years. So, chances are pretty good that even if you're not moved out yet, you still enjoy doing more adult things than your friends.

You are a very resourceful zodiac sign, too. That means that you will move out when the timing feels right; not when you've checked everything off of a list. You know how to take care of yourself and are very capable of being on your own. You tend to act based on your intuition, so when things seem to make sense, you make your move.

10. LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leo, you have been waiting to move out of your parents’ house ever since you knew what you wanted to do in life. You are a very determined, headstrong zodiac sign, so once you have a plan, you tend to stick to it until you see it through. Once you have an idea of the city you want to live in, what job you’re going to apply to, and the kind of person you want to be, nothing and no one can deter you.

You’re ready to move out as soon as you’re able to. And chances are, your main motivation for moving out so soon is because you already have a job lined up. You don’t mess around and you don’t need convincing to get out there to start your life already, so now it’s just up to you to start making moves.


11. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius, you are a very independent zodiac sign and moving out of your parents’ house is something that you have been looking forward to for as long as you can remember. It’s not that you don’t want to spend time with your family, but if you had to choose between living on your own and having as much freedom as possible or living at home until you’re 50, you’re gonna choose to live on your own.

You have dreamt of what it would be like to live on your own, really figure out the person you want to be, and what you want to do in life for so long that you don’t want to have to postpone all of these amazing plans one second longer. You’ve already packed up your belongings and will live out of one suitcase for as long as it takes until you get the chance to move out of your parents’ place for good.


12. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius, you are another one of those independent zodiac signs who doesn’t need anyone but yourself to be happy in life. You’ve never been one of those people who has to stay at home with your parents’ because you get homesick easily, either. You’re not one to stick to a routine, but you know that after graduation comes moving out and no one is going to stop you from making that happen.

You don’t even need a plan to move away from home – as long as you get to move on to the next adventure. You are most likely to bounce around from city to city, sometimes working and sometimes exploring, after moving out of your parents’ house. You don’t really care about following the status quo, getting a job, and settling down when you know there will be plenty of time for that. Right now, you just want to have fun.
