Are you a short-term or long-term thinker? If we consider how astrology determines the pragmatic, logical zodiac signs from the impractical ones, we can decide for ourselves if we are a long-term or short-term thinker. So, are you one of the zodiac signs who think long-term?

If you look at the big picture and plan for things that will happen down the road, you’re a long-term thinker. You tend to be financially sound and probably save more than you spend. You’re able to take the steps to achieve your long-range goals.


You’re patient, caring, and wise. You have the ability to develop good habits because you don’t need immediate gratification. You’re aware enough to know that taking small steps over a long period of time can yield great results.

People who are long-term thinkers tend to be prudent, disciplined, and dependable. They’re gifted at planning and focus. They aren’t impulsive or foolish, and they tend not to make mistakes because they didn’t think about the consequences beforehand.


Long-term thinkers are rarely rash, and they don’t say or do things they regret. but if there’s an unusual circumstance and they do something out-of-character, they take full responsibility for it.
