What You Spend the Most Time Thinking About, Based on Your Zodiac Sign
Does your zodiac sign affect the way you think about the world?
If you believe that the alignment of the planets and stars has a powerful influence over your personality, it's not a stretch to say it also affects the thoughts that drift through your mind day in and day out. Keep scrolling to see if we can guess what you spend the most time thinking about.
Aries (March 21 – April 19): Your Happiness
Aries is an active and enthusiastic sign that spends more time than they realize thinking about their happiness and fulfillment. You're at your most joyful when you're on the move and taking action, and you get bored easily when you feel that you're being held back. Few things pain you more than being cooped up inside when you'd rather be out doing anything else, because you know how much happier you could be. Make the most of that free time to act on your dreams and it'll make the downtime from fun a little less painful.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Your Prosperity
Taurus is inherently a grounded and steady sign, which serves their ultimate goal to thrive and succeed. Just because you're down to earth doesn't mean you don't also dream of making a name for yourself and becoming wealthy. You seek bold opportunities, and wouldn't mind leading an extravagant life if you had the means to do so. You cultivate your strengths, such as your dependability and wisdom, because you know they're tools that will allow you to prosper.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Your Friends
Gemini puts friends first and the rest of the world second. You believe that you're nothing without the people who care about you, and their happiness matters more to you than anything else. You also know that it's no good surrounding yourself with people who think exactly like you, so you have some diverse and unusual folks in your contact list. Sometimes you worry about whether you spread yourself too thin, but other times you realize that the more pals you have, the merrier.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Your Feelings
A Cancer's heart leads their life. You might find that you react and make decisions before your logic has even had time to process situations. While that would get most people in trouble, you almost always stick to what your intuition tells you, so there's rarely a point in getting your brain involved at all. When you can't focus, it's because you're feeling strongly about something and that's all you can think about. Don't be afraid to make time to process your feelings for a moment instead of trying to push through and ignore them.
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): Your Image
Leo's public image matters to them more than almost anything else. You need to have your strengths reflected back at you to truly see them. Your success, talent and generosity wouldn't mean anything to you if they weren't also acknowledged by the people in your life. Lucky for you, your charisma makes all of those abilities difficult for others to ignore. You live for recognition, and you're a people person so it's not usually difficult for you to get it.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sep. 22): Your Future
Virgo cares about getting things right. You strive for perfection because you care about the quality of your work, and it's important that you start impressing people and being recognized now—even if getting credit for your greatness sometimes makes you uncomfortable. You know that every achievement now lays the groundwork for your future. By working on your skills and building up a resume, you'll be more prepared to live a stable and comfortable.

Libra (Sep. 23 – Oct. 22): Your Relationships
Libra is the sign of balance, and they maintain peace in their relationships by remaining impartial and standing firmly in the center whenever conflict arises. You're not too comfortable when disagreements come up, which can lead to a difficult time navigating your relations with friends and family. You spend a lot of time thinking about how you relate to the people you care about and how you can smooth things out and keep everyone on the same page. Just don't overextend yourself. Remember that you can't always make everyone happy and that it's not your job to do so.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Your Needs
Scorpio can sometimes be the most selfish zodiac sign—but that's actually a good thing. You're still figuring things out, so when you put yourself first, it's not out of a lack of care for others. You know that until you can understand what you want and need out of life, you're not going to be able to do much good for the people around you. Your closest friends are the people who understand that about you and are also helping you to learn who you are.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): Your Journey
Sagittarius is an optimistic sign, and they believe they can do anything they set their mind to. You love to travel and experience new things, and you're often thinking about your next big adventure. Beyond that, you see your whole life as an adventure, and you believe you'll accomplish all of your dreams. Some people might say you need a reality check, but keep going after what you want until life gets in the way. Even if you fail, you'll learn a lot more than you would if you'd never tried.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Your Legacy
Capricorn is the hardest worker of the zodiac, thinking not just of the future they're creating for themself, but also how they'll be remembered. You put the effort in and refuse to cut corners because you want your work to speak for itself. You persist even when things get really hard, but you're also realistic and know when to quit. Your ultimate goal is to have your actions live on and for future generations to be able to build off your achievements.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): Your Path
As much as Aquarius cares deeply about others, their independence means that it's critical that they live for themself, first. You've never been happy to walk anyone else's path in life and just follow along, so you need to figure things out on your own. You're open to new ideas and would rather explore them yourself rather than taking someone else's word on them. This can make you a little unpredictable at times, but it's all in service of making your own way.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): Your Dreams
Of all the signs, Pisces is at the great risk of daydreaming their entire life away. You're full of ideas and creativity, but you don't always have the time or the motivation to act on them. Most of the time, you don't even make the effort to jot them down. Whether you're someone who dwells on the same dream for years and years, or you're moving on from concept to concept every five minutes, you spend a lot of time in your mind. Try to get them on paper and see what you can build with your imagination.
