There are oh so many ways that messy can express. We can use astrology to determine which horoscope signs may be more inclined to messy, filthy living.

Not everyone's standards are the same for how messy is too messy. Applied to your personal spaces and your own bodies, messiness can be indicated by some key astrological personality traits that lend itself to untidiness, and sometimes being disorganized is due to high intelligence.

Taking a look at your sun sign or that of family and friends, you may be able to point out those very qualities that lead to messy living.

For instance, there are horoscope signs in the zodiac that lean toward fastidiously tidy (Virgo). Although I have known two Virgo's that were worlds apart on that trait. Think about some creative people you know. Were they too busy to be bothered with organizing their desk or picking up the garage?

Those individuals may have been CEOs of thriving companies or moms who ran the PTA. Sometimes being the messiest person in the bunch can equal being the most amazing. It all depends on the reason why a person is labeled messy, at the end of the day. Per astrology, you can also tell by the way their planets aspect in their personal horoscope at birth or during a certain transit in time.

It's a great reminder that our sun signs alone don't indicate the fullness of our personalities. (You'll need a full natal chart reading to really have the best indication of what type of person you've encountered.)

But generally speaking, here are the zodiac signs and the traits that most indicate whether they may be more likely to be neat or messy, per astrology.

ARIES (March 21 — April 19)

Aries, you actually enjoy a clean house and being clean in general. Some of your lifestyle choices may prevent you from being as well kept as you'd try like. It's an unfortunate truth, when you find yourself not home as much as you'd like to be and when you are your list for activities you need to catch up on, may get in the way of the cleaning you know you'd like to see done.

Being home and relaxing there when you can may be a higher priority than scrubbing floors. You may just try to not acquire as many dirty dishes by eating out more to avoid it all. 

TAURUS (April 20 — May 20)

Taurus, you love beautiful things and a beautiful perfectly decorated house is something you can pull off, your probably slow to start the work. Once you get around to it you could be looking at a complete mess. That mess will disrupt the aesthetic so them you could try to power through the debris, then slowly let it all accumulate once again. 

GEMINI (May 21 — June 20)

Gemini, you probably have a messy side and a clean side. That clean side may involve shoving your stuff in closets, and boxes etc. Your messy side won't have had to slow down to clean and your clean side is appealed to and won't have to see the mess, then its easier to convince yourself and everyone else it isn't there until you've faced with a barrage of hidden stuff. 

CANCER (June 21 — July 22)

Cancer, you may be rather messy. This could be because your preference for curling up on the couch with a snuggly blanket and your favorite Netflix series alongside a selection of snacks takes precedence over doing chores. When you're not getting your chill on, you may be chatting with close friends and family, giving them your attention rather than the floor you can no longer see.

LEO (July 23 — August 22)

Leo, you can be messy at times. These times may well be times when you've procrastinated whatever it is you must do. Once it's squarely up to bat and the clock is loudly ticking, you may find yourself throwing things around as you frenetically dig through drawers and power through your bathroom routine leaving everything in disarray. You know you'll come back to it later (praying no one stops by unexpectedly) and get your groove on to clean it all back up though. When its all done you can rest finally in your clean house. 

VIRGO (August 23 — September 22)

Virgo, mess, and filth is your arch nemesis. You do well in areas where your organizational skills can be used to there fullest. You may typically have a clean abode. I know a Virgo who would pick you glass up, wipe beneath it and set it back down on a coaster. No rings on the furniture allowed. Bad things can happen to someone who tracks fresh dirt onto your freshly scrubbed floors, after all, it was cleaned on your hands and knees. 

LIBRA (September 23 — October 22)

Libra, you like to run a balanced household. Part of that quality is attempting to balance life in all aspects. Having a messy house may prey on your sense of harmony. You may clean regularly just to ensure there is never too much to quickly manage. You'll do it all even with a fresh manicure and heels if you must. 

SCORPIO (October 23—November 21)

Scorpio, like most of us your sometimes a bit messy. Most of the time I would say your tidy though. You likely just don't use up too many items, preferring instead to wash up the dishes right after a meal, then not hit the kitchen again until the next time for a meal or a drink refill.

You may have your nose in a book pretty often, immersed in a world far away and too absorbed to make the mess. You may be pretty no-nonsense when it comes to clutter, keeping only the items you use on a regular base.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22—December 21)

Sagittarius, You may be a bit on the messy side. It is hard after all to earn two Doctorate degrees, a Bachelor's degree, travel the world, see concerts and go to parties all while maintaining a perfectly clean house. No one should begrudge you messy hair or a messy bed when you're working to achieve so much.

I have known one Sagittarius though who had the most lovely dining table, fully set at all time, clean house overall, and everything stayed immaculate because she was rarely home to disrupt it. 

CAPRICORN (December 22—January 19)

Capricorn, You will probably be pretty tidy. If just makes more practical sense to maintain orderliness, after all, if you didn't keep things where you can find them then getting your projects done would take way too long.

A mess can disrupt the tasks you need to focus on, you likely won't like anything that interferes with your plans. Time is money is your motto and if something needs to be cleaned in your environment, you would just get it done and move on. 

AQUARIUS (January 20 — February 18)

Aquarius, your probably messy and tidy in nearly equal parts.  You're a sign that has many facets that often aren't considered natural fits but you make it all work flawlessly. You're a bit all over the place. You may go through times when things get a little chaotic.

You're really above worry over mess during those times as you know where it's important to focus your energies and you won't worry over what anyone else thinks about it. When it's time for cleaning you will get it done efficiently and well. 

PISCES (February 19 — March 20)

Pisces, you may be quite messy. You may have a tendency to no over worry about things piling up around you. Your focus could be far away in a dream world where you can live in a perfectly cleaned house and never have had to lift a finger to make it so.

If your the messy type of Pisces, then having lots of items around that are personal in some sentimental way may actually be more comforting, who cares if they get a little dusty. Piles of unfinished projects and all the manuals to complete them may stack up over time just waiting for someday.
