Why You're Happier Single, By Zodiac Sign

Why You're Happier Single, By Zodiac Sign

Some people don't enjoy being single. People say it’s so fulfilling to be in a relationship, what with the companionship and all. Yes, you do get to share experiences together, but when you spend the rest of your time disputing about those experiences, it's less than ideal.

Sometimes it’s more fulfilling to date yourself, just ask any Sagittarius or Aries. You don't have to get to know yourself in some fancy interview, at a restaurant of all places (the food, the bill — it's too awkward).

When you date yourself, you don’t have to try to make yourself understood, consider anyone else’s baggage whether traveling or otherwise, and there’s no one stealing the blankets from you in the middle of the night.

Singleness is less stressful. Plus, there are other perks to flying solo. You can go see whatever movie sounds the most interesting, spend as much time with your friends as you want, and (can you believe it?) the house is half as dirty in the same amount of time. Thank. Goodness.

Take a deep breath, my friend. Breathe in the relaxation, and breath out the breakup drama. Breathe in ready to rage, and breathe out boredom. There is a myriad of benefits to singlehood, whether you’re a Ram, who loves to lead even when no one is around or an Archer that just doesn't see the point in settling down (yet).

From an astrology standpoint, some horoscope signs can't wait to hit up all of their friends post breakup, while other zodiac signs are anticipating melting into the couch. All of you will be happy, though. However long it's been since your breakup, find out why you're better off below, according to astrology, by horoscope

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

The realm of practicality is your comfort zone, and right now you don’t have to constantly push those boundaries—just enough for personal growth. How relaxing is that, Capricorn? When you come up with an equation or formula, or some other way to quantify that, I’ll be excited to hear it. Make your lists, check them twice, and tackle each problem with that logical left brain of yours.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Relationships cause feelings, and ain’t nobody got time for that. Aquarius, you want to detach and float up above the airplanes. When you’re single, you get to mingle with the big ideas and leave questions like “how does that make you feel?” behind. Ah, do you hear that? It’s the sound of no one questioning your commitment. You're often characterized as, "aloof," but it's not that you don't care! You just spend your time dreaming up ways to save the world... and maybe running away from the small talk. Time for blast off, space cadet. 

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

When you’re in a relationship, you just give and give and give. It’s admirable that you’re so selfless, but you need to invest in you! Take yourself out Pisces, and throw in a box of fancy chocolates while you’re at it. Sometimes what you really need to do is treat yourself like you want to be treated. You've probably been investing in your former's interests more than your own. Why don't you sign up for a class, call an old friend, or join an intramural sport? Polish your shine, Pisces.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Now’s the time to let your competitive nature shine! Everything’s a challenge, including how many phone numbers you can get in one night out. Your significant others don’t like it when you take everything as a challenge, but your bar crawl buddies do. From card games to flirting, do what you love most and show off!

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Not to be cliché, Taurus, but right now it’s all about your way. You don’t have to compromise with anyone, unless you’re of two minds about an issue. No matter the task, bask in the glory of doing what you know is best without having to argue about it first. 

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Did your ex criticize you for going out too much? Boo. You can go out when you want, and with whomever you want. Let your social butterfly out into the light instead of pretending to be the homebody you were never meant to be. Did a new theatre just open up? Go see a play! Favorite band in town? Soak up some tunes. Just don’t forget to feed the fish in all of your excitement. 

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

You’re more than others would think, Cancer. You don’t need to let anyone drag you out right now. It’s all Netflix binging and reorganizing your collectibles for you. And no, you’re not boring or antisocial. You just don’t need as much people time, IRL or online, as everyone else. Spend some time with yourself creating your ideal oasis. Nest it up and take up all the space.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Don’t lie, Leo, you love the limelight. When you’re single, you like to strut your stuff for anyone who makes eyes at you. Enjoy all the admiration and free whatevers from everyone hoping to catch your eye. And if you happen to catch your own in the mirror, there’s no one around to say you can’t—blow yourself a kiss, baby, you're fly and you know it.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Finally! You’re single and there’s no one else around doing everything wrong and messing up your work. Perfectionist Virgos love having their homes to themselves especially. You think that picture is off center? Just move it. Don’t like that accent wall? Make it the same as the others. And if you just recently became single, you can undo all the decoration mistakes of exes past. In fact, just go with a whole new image. Singlehood is about reinvention, isn't it?

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Avoiding confrontation is like a guilty pleasure for you, but now you get all of the pleasure without the guilt. Right now you get all of the peace and quiet you could ask for, and there’s no need to play diplomat between your significant other and “that friend.” What a breath of fresh air. Have you ever had to argue about something as silly as which way to put the toilet paper on the roll? Yikes. Put in on whichever way and go chill with some old movies.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

What brings you more joy than snooping, Scorpio? Oh wait, not needing to. Since you’re single you don’t have to keep tabs or check in yourself. How liberating is that? Stay focused on your work, hobbies, and best friends without having to wonder, “is my significant other’s ‘friend’ really just a friend?” If anything, it's your turn to make everyone else jealous with your rocking fashion and charm. Wink wink, Scorpio. 

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

I heard a certain archer in the zodiac loves to travel, and now you can roam free without anyone else criticizing your hostel choices, telling you not to go to “that town,” or “that country,” or any other such irritations. Enjoy learning new languages, sipping new wines, and flirting with mysterious strangers, Sagittarius. And, now you can do it all without working around somebody else's work schedule, insistence on a boring itinerary, or worse, hatred of travel. Go out and explore--no reservations.
