Zodiac Signs That Are Most Likely To Be Bookworms

1. GEMINI (May 21 – June 21)

gemini likes to read because reading satisfy their curiosity and hunger for knowledge

Gemini enjoys taking in information. They live, breathe, and eat information. For the sign of twins, reading a book is a great way to quench their thirst for information and knowledge. So it is natural that those the Gemini star sign are avid readers. They will be starting to read just a chapter and then a few hours later they will be done with the whole book. The planet that influences communication, Mercury, rules Gemini and it is one of the factors that result in the Twins’ love for reading.

Of course, Gemini is a sign that also represents versatility, which means those with this sun sign enjoys books and articles in a diverse variety of genres. They may like anything that is based on historical facts, to a suspense thriller, to light-hearted comedic novels. Those who have their rising and moon sign in Gemini are also likely to enjoy this activity.

2. TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)

The sign of the golden bull finds reading enjoyable and relaxing. While Taurus may not have the urge to learn the same way a Gemini would, they are all about enjoying oneself and being comfortable. In books, men & women of the earth sign find the comfort and the sanctuary that they seek. Those with the Taurus sign are the types that like to cozy up on their sofa and read a good book while having the television or radio on, and munching on snacks at the same time.

Some of them will most definitely like to read in bed because again, reading is a relaxing thing to do. And this is something that makes the Taurus very happy.

3. VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)

Once again a sign that is ruled by communicative Mercury is a sign that loves to read. Virgo reads as a way to exercise their mind, which is different from the Gemini’s reason to read. The Gemini does it because of having a strong urge and hunger to keep learning new information. The Virgo is all about staying healthy and books are the metaphorical weight to activate and build the brain muscle.

Virgo will eat a healthy meal, workout physically, and then keep their minds stimulated by spending time on a good book. They will most definitely choose a book over Netflix unless there’s an informative program. However, reading is the preferred activity for the Virgo when it comes to keeping their minds engaged.

4. CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)

It is not a surprise that those who have their sun in Capricorn are avid readers. They want to keep their minds busy and they want to keep learning new things to help themselves improve in all areas of life. Especially when it comes to anything that has to do with business or a self-help book to help themselves stay organized and on top of things.

Just like Virgo, Capricorn would choose reading over watching television as a way to unwind. They are not likely to read a fictional romance novel that they would not get much knowledge from. Historical facts, as well as books that cover current world events, and self-help books, are what the Capricorn would enjoy the most.

5. PISCES (February 19 – March 20)

Those with Pisces influence in their birth chart would also appreciate the good book. However, they would not get much out of the genres that Capricorns or Virgos enjoy. Pisceans are typically into fictional romance novels, fantasy novels, or anything light-hearted. They also enjoy watching television, but they prefer to read a good book that will help them get lost in a fantasy world; that is a big reason why they love to read.

This means that a good gift for Pisces is a good light-hearted book for their birthday or Christmas.

Flip Side Of The Coin – Signs That Don’t Particularly Enjoy Reading

Other members of the zodiac don’t necessarily hate to read. They are just pickier over the genre and the way it is done.

Among the four elements: fire, water, earth, and air, the element that is the least likely to read is fire. Fire signs are passionate and energetic but they don’t typically have the patience to sit and finish a book.

Having said that, for a short time, Aries is likely to be attracted to action-oriented books. Those with Leo in their core will be happy to read books about celebrities, and those with Sagittarius in their chart will be intrigued to study about spirituality, religion, or something new that they can learn. Sagittarius is the most likely of the fire signs to sit and spend time with a book but only on their terms. They prefer learning through physical exploration and taking courses.

Libra and Aquarius aren’t big readers either. Aquarians find other ways to stay innovative, and Libras are too much into socializing. Spending time on a book is not something they prefer to do during their leisure time.

Who is the biggest bookworm of the zodiac?

Those who have all of the signs that love to read as their sun, moon, or rising signs would be the ultimate bookworms. For example, if you find out that someone has a Gemini sun, a Capricorn Moon, and Pisces rising, they’re likely to be a big bookworm!
