Most people who are hardworking like to think they’re that way because they were properly brought up or were raised in the right environment. While this might be true, astrologers believe that your birthday could also play a major role in how you do work. Being a workaholic may have its downsides, but it also has its perks. For instance, it’s not enough to want to achieve big things, you need hardworking people on your team to do all the heavy lifting. Here is a ranking of the zodiac signs in order of how hard working they are.
Zodiac Hardworking Ranking (Least to Most)
Least Hardworking to Most Hardworking Zodiac Signs
Leos love to be the center of attraction. Ironically, even though they want to enjoy the limelight, they usually are too lazy to put in the work required to make it happen. Their only saving grace is that they’re naturally talented and adored. They can easily turn on the charm to get what they want. This still doesn’t take away the fact that they’re one of the laziest (if not the laziest) zodiac signs out there.
You’ll often find people born under this sign volunteering for one humanitarian cause or the other. While this is a good thing in itself, it’s mostly talk and little action from them. While they want to make a positive difference in the world, an Aquarius is usually too lazy to put in the work it requires. They also don’t like to participate in dull or boring situations, so if the work isn’t interesting or adventurous, they’ll most likely pull out.
Sagittarius people are free-spirited. They love their freedom and anything that will confine or restrict them is out of the question. Since being hardworking means you have to consistently show and stay dedicated to the work you do, Sags will most likely find this to constraining to enjoy. They’ll still work if they have no choice, but they won’t volunteer or put in extra time at work unless it is absolutely necessary.
As a Taurus, you love the baby girl life. You want to enjoy the fine things of life and relax as much as possible. This means you’ll often take breaks in between work and you’re ever eager to go on a vacation. You do the least amount of work possible-just enough to not get called a lazy bone but not too much to stress yourself.
Pisces have their head in the clouds most of the time. The fact that they’re almost always daydreaming makes them very bad workers. They leave things till the last minute and would rather rely on others to do things for them rather than take responsibility to get them done. They’re the first out of the door at the close of work and they won’t take up any other extra responsibilities other than the basics.
Libras are team players and they often carry any team projects on their shoulders. As a libra, you’re enthusiastic about work and you often try to give your all. The only problem is that you tire easily and you’re easily distracted. You love to overindulge yourself and you can take it too far sometimes.
Cancer has a homebody reputation and they often live up to it. They will gladly do chores and their house is always organized. However, they love to work at their own pace which others often find painstakingly slow. Cancer can be diligent with work, but only when they want to be. They don’t like to waste effort, so they’ll only work if they think it’s worth their time. People often mistake this for laziness but it isn’t so.
Only one zodiac sign can manage to appear lazy and hardworking at the same time and that’s the Gemini. As a Gemini, even you can’t make up your mind about whether you’re lazy or hardworking. You tend to lose interest in things and get distracted easily which means you are always starting up things but never finishing them. When you do work, you do so with machinelike precision, often working for hours until someone tells you to chill it a bit. You also have lazy days where you don’t put in any effort at all.
Scorpios love to work, but they prefer to do so away from the spotlight. Many people think you’re lazy because they can’t see you when you work. You’re also not a very good team player but will work diligently alone. The Scorpio’s determination is remarkable. You’ll see to it that every project you’re assigned is completed just in time. But you don’t bite off more than you can chew so no extra time or weekend jobs for you.
People born under this star sign are known to be hardworking. In fact, they push themselves even more than others push them. They thrive best when they get different opportunities to showcase their many talents. Aries is a perfectionist when it comes to working. They also love to take charge so they’ll usually complete a task even before they’re asked to do so and will start working on the next one almost immediately.
Being hardworking is one of the main character traits of the Virgo star sign. In fact, they have an all work no play philosophy that makes them horrible bosses. Virgos are very meticulous with work and will deliver to the highest precision possible. Thanks to their analytical minds, they never miss even the tiniest detail. To them, it’s not enough to get the work done, it has to be done as perfectly as possible.
Capricorns have a laser focus that helps them to get things done without getting distracted by anything. They have mastered self-discipline and are driven by ambition. Unlike others that need bosses to motivate them to stay on track, Capricorns motivate themselves and challenge others to do more. You’ll make sure every bit of work is done before taking a break and you’re ready to take on more work if there is a need for it.
