The Best Hobby For Each Zodiac Sign, According To Astrology

What do you like to do with your spare time? Being that spare time is a rare commodity, it's probably a good idea to utilize it well.

Spare time can be something we look forward to having. Too much time on our hands? Never enough, for some. And with that time, it's a great thing indeed to throw one's self into good, time-consuming hobbies. Some automatically think of game time, while others tend to go creative.

Whatever one's hobbies are, they are not just fun — they're essential for keeping us sane. After all, we can't work all the time. We need our hobbies. We need our private little getaways, even if we don't have to leave the comfort of our own home to enjoy them.

In astrology, our zodiac signs give us a heads up as to which hobby might be one we'd pursue, and sometimes in very obvious ways.

A Sagittarius, for example, might like spending time with horses or on a horse farm. While that might be a stereotype, we have stereotypes for a reason — people really are that way. Not all, but some, yes.

So, what is the best hobby for your zodiac sign?

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Aries is the intellectual. You'll find them reading. Books are their biggest hobby. When they're not reading, they are creating art, music, literature. They love to write and engage in debates.

Aries is also very good at cooking, and like to spend their downtime learning how to perfect some new recipe. Cooking is a definite hobby for Aries.
