6 Minimalistic Zodiac Signs For Whom Less Is Always More

Zodiac, Self

Do you consider yourself a minimalist? Do you feel more at peace when you have very few possessions and have only the things that you consider essential? Have you ever wondered if astrology plays a role in this? It does, and it can also determine the minimalist zodiac signs.

I could write a book on minimalists or, at the very least, a book on what it’s like to be related to a minimalist. My mother is a minimalist and you’d be able to tell the moment you walked into her house. There’s nothing that’s unnecessary or unneeded, unless you count the few vases she has for decoration.

She uses yard-furniture both indoors and out. She has four forks, four spoons, and four knives, but no toaster, no microwave, and no hairdryer. She does have a washing machine but dries her clothes in the sun or in front of the fireplace.

Although my mother likes clothes, she doesn't own a closetful, as she’s always getting rid of stuff. She often doesn't have the things that she actually needs. But it isn’t because she can’t afford a rice cooker or instant pot, it’s because too many items become (in her mind) clutter, and she can’t stand it.

Sometimes, one has to be a minimalist because they’re traveling or they live in a small space. Possessions take up space that you might not have, and when you have a lot of stuff, it makes it harder to clean or more difficult to bring with you when you’re on the road.

1. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

The minimal aspect that appeals most to Virgo is the cleanliness and ease of organization. For Virgo, they much prefer having a few nice things that aren't difficult to clean than a room full of furniture.

They like to have things in their place and it's much easier to keep things organized when there isn't a lot to organize. They'd rather have no furniture at all and sit on the floor than fill up every inch with knick-knacks or items that have no meaning to them.

2. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Sometimes, Scorpios can have a very minimalist attitude when it comes to the people in their life. They'd rather have a few close friends that they trust than a large squad of people they barely know.

It's not unlike Scorpio to do a big purge of their social media friends too. They'd rather delete them than ignore them. If a Scorpio hasn't met their Facebook friend in real life or they don't have some other important connection to them, they would rather declutter their friend's list than try to grow their numbers.

3. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarians have a list (written on an app or maybe just in their head) of the things they define as essential. They know what they want and what they need to live a satisfying life. They don't go for excess or putting things away for that rainy day; if it's not being regularly used, Aquarius will get rid of it.

They tend to leave a very small carbon footprint and could probably pack up their entire house (save for the large items) in an hour. They are the people that tiny houses are designed for, because not only are they minimalist, they're ingenious enough to come up with some life-enhancing hacks.

4. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Since Sagittarius individuals are always on the go and traveling from place to place, they tend to keep the number of things they have to a bare minimum. Their goal is often to get all their stuff into one pack.

They know how to take one item like coconut oil and use it for different things such as an oil to cook with, a moisturizer, and a shaving cream. They're constantly going through their belongings and throwing stuff out.

5. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces can go either way — they can have way too much stuff, or they could go the complete opposite direction and barely have any possessions except for their art supplies. They want to not be too attached to material goods and they aim towards it, but sometimes they can get attached to their stuff.

They're the most minimalist in how they handle money. They're frugal without being penny-pinchers. They look for deals, bargains, and will do what they have to in order to get the lowest price. Pisces want to get the most for their money, and if they can't find something at a discount, they're okay with living without it.

6. LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leos do like to spend money but much of the time they're buying gifts for other people. They have an appreciation for quality and things that are well-made, so they're willing to pay the big bucks for craftsmanship and quality. Discount knock-offs aren't for them, so they don't have a lot of junk in their home simply taking up space.

Leos will go without if they're saving up for something they really want. They don't want to compete for attention in their own house, so they tend to decorate minimalistically and with clean lines.
