March 21 – April 19
The Boogeyman Defender
On average, 34% of people are afraid of the dark, but only 17% of Aries are. Fire signs are known for their fearlessness, and Aries especially are known for their confidence. An Aries will scare away all the monsters under your bed for you.
April 20 – May 20
The Sleep Guru
Tauruses are practical, stubborn, and consistent. That’s probably why they’re the earliest to bed and report the best sleep quality. Looking to improve your sleep? Take lead from a Taurus.
May 21 – June 20
Geminis are the least likely to sleep alone — 68% share the bed with a partner, pet, or child. This willingness to snuggle up at night likely stems from Geminis being the most afraid of the dark (42% of Geminis report a fear of the dark).
June 21 – July 22
The Noise Machine
Cancers will keep you up all night with all the noise they make. 33% of Cancers snore and 26% talk in their sleep! Be careful with your complaints, though. Criticism can make Cancers crabby.
July 23 – August 22
32% of Leos say they regularly have crazy, vivid dreams.
Leos are creative and adventurous, so it’s no surprise they build crazy worlds to escape in while they dream.
August 23 – September 22
The Lucid Dreamer
Virgos, a grounded earth sign, experience lucid dreaming the most frequently, meaning they are conscious while dreaming. Virgos are so in-tune with their surroundings that their dreams can’t fool them as reality.
September 23 – October 22
The Most Average Sleeper
Libras are a balanced sign, and their sleep reflects this quality. Among all the factors we polled people on, Libras fell right in the middle. They don’t sleep perfectly or horribly, too short or long, or have any prominent sleep problems.
October 23 – November 21
The Restless Sleeper
Less than 3% of the general population kicks in their sleep, but 15% of Scorpios report having a habit of sleep kicking. These water signs are known to be intense, so it’s no surprise their energy forces its way out during sleep.
November 22 – December 21
Named not for experiencing nightmares, but being one. Sagittariuses are known for getting the least amount of sleep and having the weirdest sleep schedule. This fire sign is also most likely to sleep alone (48% do) which comes as no surprise since they seem terrible to sleep with.
December 22 – January 19
The Teeth Grinder
Of all the signs, Capricorns grind their teeth at night the most (28% do). Bruxism is common for people who are stressed, overworked, and worrying too much – aka Capricorns. Fun fact: According to medical astrology, Capricorns are known to be distinctive about their teeth.
January 20 – February 18
The Night Owl
Aquarians are rebels at heart, and this carries over into their bedtime. Even though 56% of Aquarians wake up tired, 29% regularly stay up past midnight. When will these night owls learn?
February 19 – March 20
Pisces are governed by duality between the spiritual and physical. This emotional sign is often divided between reality and fantasy, which explains why so many Pisces (38%) have trouble falling asleep. Try meditation to become more conscious of each state and find sleep easier.
