Living life in the moment and living it with commitments are two very different feelings. When you live in the moment, nothing in the past or future matters. All that matters is that you enjoy whatever you’ve got going right now.

For some zodiac signs, this is how you live life right – just doing whatever feels right without worrying about where to go next. For other zodiac signs, this sounds like a terrible way to love. How can you live without commitments if your next move is constantly a guessing game?

Living life in the moment can be thrilling, but it can also be like trying to walk around with a blindfold on – you never really know if you’re going in the right direction. When you live life with commitments, it’s totally different.

There are no surprises, you know exactly what your next move will be, and you can always prepare yourself for what comes next. That said you are living in the future when you live a life with commitments.

There’s no being spontaneous because everything is already planned out. And if you feel like just taking a vacation, you’re most likely the person who already has the entire trip planned out instead of just seeing where the day takes you and your friends.

There are pros and cons to both sides, but if you ask these zodiac signs, they will always tell you that living in the moment is the best choice. Living in the moment also means that you prefer not to be tied down to just one person.

While it can mean letting life happen while you enjoy the ride, it can also mean that you’re more likely to keep casual hook-ups instead of be in a long-term relationship with just one person.

And for some horoscope signs, this is the best kind of “living in the moment” experience. Why waste your time with one person for the rest of your life when you can live it up with as many people as possible, am I right? But besides all of that – which can vary from person to person – there are a lot of other benefits to living in the moment.

When you live in the present without worrying about the past or the future, you tend to have more fun. You’re not wishing you were back at home taking a nap or wanting to fast-forward to the weekend because the most significant moment in your life is happening right now.

Living in the moment can also decrease stress and worry for some people. Rather than trying to figure out what’s making you so mad and annoyed (was it something that happened last week? Or on the bus this morning?), you can detect those negative feelings right away, since everything that could be worrying you is all happening in and around the present moment.

Lastly, living in the present is a kind of meditation. When you meditate, you’re teaching yourself to let go of everything going on around you and focus on your breathing and how you’re feeling right now. Living in the moment can give you some much needed clarity that constantly thinking about the past or future can’t.

So, if you’re ever looking for someone to show you how to let go of everything that’s stressing you out and just enjoy the right now, spend some time with the zodiac signs who choose living in the moment over commitment, according to astrology.


1. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries, you are one of the most spontaneous and impulsive zodiac signs there is. You don't live in the past, hoping you could redo things all over again, and you don't live in the future, hoping that tomorrow will be better than today. You live in the right now and you love every second of it.

Because so many of your decisions are made based on how you feel about them right now, you don't really take the time to commit to anything (or anyone). Not only do you live your life day to day, but you live your days minute by minute. Maybe that's why you're so exciting to be around – no one knows what you'll do next (and neither do you)!


2. LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leo, you're an incredibly brave and fierce zodiac sign. You believe in living in the moment over anything else because that is where all of your energy is. You know better than anyone else that things can change in a moment, so why not do exactly what you want right now instead of wait?

Whether you do it consciously or not, you are the kind of person who inspires and empowers everyone who crosses your path. Living in the moment is the only way to do that because people want to see you as someone who can confidently handle whatever life throws at you. Commit to something and you might change your mind; live in the moment and you're always happy.


3. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Life is full of chaos, and if you can't control as much of it as possible, Scorpio, it drives you nuts. You live in the moment out of necessity. When you let yourself regret the past or get anxious about the future, you'll never feel less in control. The present is right now, just where you like it.

Your energy is very intense, and the only way to regulate it is to follow your energy's ebb and flow throughout the day. When you live in the moment, you're really just trusting your gut to bring you to the right path in life. You're not as spontaneous as the other zodiac signs, but you will make a quick decision, rather than sit on it for a few days, if it makes the most sense to you.


4. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius, you have never really been one to commit to anything. Ideals, people, things – they all come and go. The only thing you can count on is your ability to live in the moment and let life take you wherever feels right.

Rules and routines bore you and make you feel constricted. You need to live your life exactly how you want to, without anyone telling you what to do. Sometimes, you can be spontaneous in a bad way, but anyone who knows you knows that you can't be tamed. Your impulsiveness is admirable and proves that living in the moment is fun and exciting.
