6 Zodiac Signs Who Treasure Their Privacy

Are you someone who treasures their privacy? Would you rather keep things to yourself than share it with the world? Do other people accuse you of holding back or being secretive?

There’s nothing wrong with being a private person, though sometimes people can take your need for privacy the wrong way. They may think you’re shutting them out, not that you don’t share the intimate details of your life with anyone.

There are certain private zodiac signs who value being alone. And it has a lot to do with their personalities set by astrology.

They may because because they’ve been hurt in the past. When your secrets are shared or someone betrays your trust, you may not be very open. There are those people who are very outgoing and social, so when they get the chance to be alone with their thoughts, they appreciate it. 

If you grew up in a family where there were a lot of people who always wanted to get into your business, as an adult, privacy may be extremely important. Sometimes, you don’t want to explain your actions or your thoughts, you just want to be left alone.

There are positives to sharing and being around people, but not having to talk to another person about everything going on in your life. Just being alone and decompressing is healthy and crucial for one’s health.

Who are the zodiac signs who prefer to be alone?

1. Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

Many Scorpios have learned to be guarded because they've been hurt in the past. They're thought to be secretive and mysterious because they keep their secrets to themselves and don't like to reveal too much. They're private people and it matters to them that others respect their privacy.

Scorpios have boundaries, especially emotional ones, and when those boundaries are crossed, they can get upset. They don't like it when people invade their space and ask intrusive questions. If Scorpio wants to tell you something, they will, so don't try to force an answer out of them.

2. Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Taureans are private people and they prefer to handle their problems themselves. They're determined and able to be their own advocates, but have difficulty trusting people, so keeping things private is a must for them. They don't enjoy when people don't honor their desire for privacy, or when others get into their business.

Taurus is strong and smart, and if they won't help, they'll ask for it. In the meantime, have faith that Taurus knows what they're doing. If they want to let someone in they will, but only if the other person isn't too pushy about it.

3. Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

Virgos treasure their privacy because it's often in those private moments where Virgo feels the most like themselves. When they're alone, working or studying, and no one is there making demands of them, Virgos are at their happiest.

Virgos don't feel the need to share everything that's going on in their lives, and you have to earn their trust because they don't give it out easily. Virgos don't need to be with people 24/7 to be happy, but they do need their privacy.

4. Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces need privacy to do their best work, to heal, and to feel at peace. They don't want to feel judged by others, so they may not let a lot of people in. They have an escapist nature and sometimes need to go off on their own without people bothering them or trying to interfere with their lives.

Pisces gives so much of themselves to other people, so they treasure the times when they're alone and only accountable to themselves. Having the time to think and be creative alone is important to Pisces.

5. Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Cancers are very connected and aware of their emotions, which is great, but it can also make them vulnerable and open to getting hurt. Cancers need alone time to take care of themselves and make sure they're healthy enough to face a brutal world.

The symbol of Cancer is the Crab, and this is fitting because they're inclined to retreat into their shell to heal. They treasure their privacy because for them it's a way to regroup and get healthy. It's almost as if having private time helps them go into the battle of life well-rested and ready for whatever is thrown at them.

Aquarians are extremely independent and really appreciate their privacy. They often have a lot of friends and family, and love being with people, but having alone time where they can think is also very important.

If Aquarius has a problem, they're more likely to handle it themselves rather than depend on someone else to help them. They treasure their privacy because that's when they feel the freest and most creative. When Aquarius is in a private space, they do their best work and feel at ease.
