Most of us have experienced (or are still experiencing) a less than ideal living situation at some point in our lives. Whether you’re feeling frustrated by a slew of slobby housemates or a little lonely in your quiet studio apartment, there are many factors that can create an unhappy home life. But if money were no object, what would your ideal living situation look like? Based on the preferences and social habits of each sign, we compiled a list of options. Does your sign do better living solo or with a house full of people? Do you need the energy of a big city or a quieter setting? Read on to find out!
Aries (March 21st-April 19th): You will thrive in a house that never sleeps! You love being around people and having a lot going on. The more housemates the merrier; as long as they are active and always doing something, you will feed off of their energy to maintain your go-go-go lifestyle.
Taurus (April 20th-May 20th): Comfort is the most important thing for you. You living space needs to be filled with people and things that make you feel as comfortable as possible. Whether you feel safer in the middle of the city or in the countryside, feeling safe and secure is also of the utmost importance.
Gemini (May 21st-June 20th): You will love living in the middle of a big city. This will give you plenty of opportunities to interact with a wide variety of people. Whether you live alone or shack up with someone, being in the city will allow you the freedom to get/see/do whatever you want at any given moment.
Cancer (June 21st-July 22nd): Living alone is not usually a good option for you. You need to be surrounded with friends, family, and loved ones to feel happiest and whole. You do well staying in the same place for a long time, and you may even end up settling down in or near the same town you were raised.
Leo (July 23rd-August 22nd): Whether you live alone or with people, you need a house that’s good for entertaining — big living room, well-stocked bar, comfy couch for crashing, etc. — because you love having your friends over, and they know better than to miss any of your unforgettable parties.
Virgo (August 23rd-September 22nd): You are happiest living in a city with lots of culture, and you do well either living alone or with a close friend or romantic partner. If there are too many people around you get nervous and uncomfortable, plus more people equals more mess and clutter which equals a very, very unhappy Virgo.
Libra (September 23rd-October 22nd): As adaptable as you are, you can live with and get along with just about anyone. You prefer living with people to living along, but more important to you will be the actual space you live in. You need it to look and feel good — a dumpy apartment in a seedy part of town is not an option for you.
Scorpio (October 23rd-November 21st): You basically have two options: live alone or live with your romantic partner. You are way too obsessive and secretive to be able to stand anyone else in your personal space all the time. You might also want to choose a home that’s a little off the beaten path to ensure you get the privacy you need.
Sagittarius (November 22nd-December 21st): You do well in most living situations, as long as you are the leader in any given house and can have things your way. Whether you own a house and hand-pick your roommates or live alone, you need to be in charge so things can be exactly as you know they should be.
Capricorn (December 22nd-January 19th): Avoid living with others unless you know them really, really well. You need personal space and calm energy so you can come home and recharge. You don’t want to be too far from the city, but right in the middle of it can be overstimulating; try somewhere in-between.
Aquarius (January 20th-February 18th): You need to be around people, whether it’s roommates, your best friend, family, or a partner. You love taking care of and watching out for others, so make yourself a cozy nest with all of your favorite people and you will be super happy.
Pisces (February 19th-March 20th): As a sensitive person, living alone can give you the calm sanctuary you crave. On the other hand, you get a lot of your energy and motivation from the people around you, so a city setting and/or a higher energy housemate or two might be a better choice.
