There’s a fine line between forgetfulness and memory. You can have an excellent memory and still be forgetful. But in astrology, there are some signs who don't remember as well as the rest of us. The forgetful zodiac signs probably never check their horoscopes either because it simply slips their minds.

These individuals may have poor memories, or they may have so much important information saved that they don’t have any room for the day to day things that we’re supposed to remember. When you’re forgetful and you know it, you need to take extra steps like having a planner, making lists, or writing things down on a schedule.

For some people, having an excellent memory is something they work at and have little tricks to help them to remember. There are even memory competitions for those who have incredible memories.

However, if you’re forgetful, you tend not to want to put as much care and effort into strengthening your memory because you have enough on your mind already. Memorization may help with things like tests and procedures, but it’s not going to help when it comes to remembering names, appointments, or errands.

Being forgetful means having the feeling that there was something you were supposed to do but not remembering what it was. You know it’s there somewhere in your brain, but you can’t quite put your finger on it.

1. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries have so much going on in their lives and are always multi-tasking that it's not surprising they're forgetful. They try to make lists and put their schedule on every device and they still forget they made plans to sign up for that art class or to pick up milk at the store.

If it's a small piece of information they can't remember, they'll force themselves to remember. When they finally stop trying, it will come to them. When they do remember, they'll throw up their hands, roll their eyes, and wonder why they couldn't remember such a simple thing.

2. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces tend to have that nagging feeling that they've forgotten something whenever they leave the house, and generally, they have forgotten something like their sunglasses, sunscreen, or phone. Pisces are the kind of people who need to retrace their steps so they can find their keys they left in the freezer by accident or the documents they were supposed to sign but misplaced in the bathroom.

Pisces spend a lot of time in their imaginary worlds, so the more practical aspects of their lives can sometimes get forgotten. They may forget to pay the gas bill, but they can tell you all about the characters in their novel.

3. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius individuals are extremely creative and are always thinking up solutions for problems and ways to come up with new innovations. When your brain is full of important facts, figures, and theories, it's not unusual that you wouldn't be great at remembering names.

Aquarius can recognize someone's face and even when they met them before, but their name is another story. They also have a hard time remembering day to day boring things like taking the wash out of the washer and putting it into the dryer; they have more important things to use their memory for.

4. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libras tend to suffer from Tip of the Tongue Phenomenon where they're very confident they know the word they're searching for in their memory, but for the life of them they can't remember it. Libras feel very frustrated when that happens, and it happens quite frequently.

They know what they know, and they hate it when they can't access that knowledge because they've temporarily forgotten it. It feels like a never-ending circle. Sometimes, Libras are forgetful because they're not getting enough sleep.

5. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

A lot of Gemini's forgetfulness is due to their bad timing. They have a lot to concern themselves with and they never allow themselves enough time to do it. Geminis are constantly forgetting the things they're supposed to do and then remembering it too late.

Geminis tend to say things such as, "I can't believe I forgot," and, "I remembered but it was too late." They're not great remembering deadlines, due dates, and cut-off periods. Much of Gemini's forgetfulness is due to being overwhelmed by the things they have to do, and stress.
