When you, personally, think of who on earth could possibly be listed as one of the top most overworked zodiac signs in astrology, I'm sure you're saying, "Oh yeah, that's me. Overworked. Here!" And you wave your hand, wearily. The grind.

We are driven by the need to feed, and feeding costs money, so... Hi ho, hi ho, it's off to work we go. And overworked is relative, as some tucker out quick, and some thoroughbred that baby right on to the home stretch.

A super hard worker may adore the adrenaline rush of success, and even failure. A super hard worker may also be someone trapped in a job they hate, draining them of precious, life sustaining energy. So, it really depends on what one does and how the individual would describe being overworked.

Some can't get to the end of the question without passing out from the exhaustion they feel over having to drum up an answer. That's an overworked person. The ones who are the most overworked are the ones who are most in demand, and that opens up a pathway to understanding why certain zodica signs are more overworked than others.

1. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Hard working Aries always puts their back into everything, and usually ends up paying for it physically. The Ram is one to push themselves; a high personal best is always in order with Aries.

And though they are somewhat compulsive about overextending themselves, they do pay dearly with bodily injuries and stress headaches.

2. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Being overworked looks like different things on different people, and an overworked Gemini more or less looks like a calm person with no care in the world. That is because they are Lords of Denial, in all the best ways.

Gemini doesn't want to be bogged down by the burden of work, so if push comes to shove, they will retreat and restore.

3. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo is driven like the virgin snow, and that crazy drive takes everyone born under that sign into new realms of ambition and the need to do it right. Perfectionism is no joke with Virgo, and attention to detail is what keeps them at the job extra hours.

Couple overworked with lack of sleep and you have the perfect cocktail for a massive meltdown of over-exhaustion and hissy-fit-throwing.

4. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libra takes on hard tasks and has a very hard time seeing them through. That causes them anxiety and stress, which takes a toll on their health.

Being burdened by an overworked situation is hard on the balance-craving Libra, and they carry around with them the weight of past projects left unfinished. There is never enough time in a day for Libra.

5. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

It's the Sagittarius way to say yes to opportunity and ask questions later. This sign takes on responsibility with the eagerness to please and the desire to reap the reward, but they often times bite off way more than they can chew.

They will accomplish their work, and they will go into some extraordinary otherworldly place to get that job done, but rest they will not when it's over. There are other promises to keep.

6. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Possibly the hardest worker of the zodiac, there is no doubt that severe exhaustion takes many of them back to the warmth of their beds due to overworked schedules. Capricorn is up at dawn for the day, they are the ones to hold jobs the longest, they are the ones who show the most company loyalty, and they demand loyalty in return.

You might not see Capricorn sweat a gig, but that's because you are in the presence of a Pro. And to be a Pro, you have to be overworked. It's in the job description.
