The Zodiac Signs Who Are All Over The Place, Per Astrology

Some people multitask to a fault. They are all over the place and often have several projects going on at the same time. 

Not being able to focus on things doesn’t always have something to do with your zodiac sign – we ALL go through bouts where we just can’t concentrate on whatever we’re trying to do. 

Be it work, a conversation, or even just driving, you know that feeling you get when you just feel like you’re in a daze. What was I just doing? Where am I going right now?

It can definitely be startling to lose focus when you’re not expecting your mind to wander off like that, but for some zodiac signs, it’s pretty normal to get side-tracked for one reason or another.

Why can't you concentrate? Distractions, interruptions, technology – they all lend themselves to our wavering mind. And for some zodiac signs, changing your environment or getting another cup of coffee is enough to help you pay attention for longer periods of time again.

For other horoscope signs, not so much. As someone who has a hard time concentrating on things – because in the back of my mind I know that there’s a ton of other things I have on my plate – putting on some calming music or turning my phone off doesn’t always help.

I personally blame my mind constantly running in a hundred different directions for my awful focus, but each zodiac sign has a different reason for not being able to concentrate.

One of the main reasons people have trouble concentrating is because our priorities tend to fall on focusing on things that aren’t really that important.

Yes, Twitter is where you go to get all of your news and current event updates, but the more time you spend on Twitter, the less time you actually have to focus on the things that are actually important to you.

Twitter might not be your go-to for losing focus, but something is. Unfinished to-do lists, an already short attention span, or that fight you had with your BFF that you just can’t get out of your mind can also be reasons you have a hard time concentrating.

And just because a fresh cup of coffee or tea doesn’t work for you doesn’t mean nothing works. Try preparing yourself to focus – set up your workspace, turn your phone on silent, find a quiet spot in your favorite coffee shop, and get to work.

Making yourself comfortable with the right temperature of the room, turning on music, and even totally unplugging from technology can also help. And if all of that doesn’t help? Sometimes just letting yourself take a break can help you clear your mind and get you back to focusing.

I know these zodiac signs could use some pointers! Here are the zodiac signs who find it hard to focus, according to astrology.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries is the kind of zodiac sign who is really good at starting things, but not really seeing them through to the finish line. Once he gets an idea for a new project or goal, he sets aside whatever he was currently working on to make time for something new.

As an Aries, it's easy for him to get bored fast, so he constantly needs stimulation and new, shiny things to work towards. He has a hard time focusing on things that take up too much time or don't seem to have an end in sight. If you can't keep him interested, he'll move on to the next thing.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini has a VERY short attention span. He's always bouncing around from one idea or person to the next that it's hard for him to settle down. He has a hard time focusing because he tends to get bored fast. If something or someone isn't interesting enough to hold his interest, he's outtie.

Don't expect to get him to change anytime soon, either. Gemini kind of likes having a short attention span because it means he gets a chance to discover a whole lot of new things in life and love. It's a weird way to think about it, but that's Gemini for ya.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libra has a hard time focusing because he always feels like his attention is being pulled in a million different directions. He wants to do good for himself, but he always wants to please others, and he's not entirely sure which one should be his priority.

Libra wants to make everyone happy while still having enough energy to do things that make him happy, too. It can be hard for him to focus on what's most important in the moment since his mindset can change on a dime.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius is always looking for the next thrilling adventure in life, and he'll do whatever it takes to ride the high of a new thrill for as long as possible. That said, once the high is gone, he's off to find the next big adventure.

Sagittarius has a hard time focusing on things that require commitment and willpower. He can be a pretty flaky and unreliable person when it comes to these things because they're not something he deems important. Get him to focus on the exciting things in life and he's all in. Anything else? Eh, not so much.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius is VERY tech-focused. Heck, he was one of the first in his squad to get an Apple Watch, after all. But all of those tech toys are what seriously make it hard for him to focus. His watch buzzes, his phone beeps, he's got one thing in progress on his laptop, and something else on Netflix – it's too much!

Aquarius also likes having his hands in a bunch of different projects at once. He likes feeling busy, but he also likes feeling like he's making a difference. He has a tendency to say yes to things that sound fun and important, even if he barely has enough room on his plate to truly focus on something new.
