These Zodiac Signs Are NOT Morning People

Did you remember to set an alarm to change your clocks on November 1st? Daylight Savings Time ends, and we all need to set our clocks back an hour. That’s great news for these Zodiac signs, who need all the help they can get in the mornings.

These are the folks that need a gallon of coffee, multiple alarm clocks, and maybe a bucket of cold water to the face in order to get up on time. Even then, they probably won’t be at peak functionality until at least noon.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

Scorpio tends to be a night owl. After all, things get more… interesting after dark. This enigmatic water sign rarely goes to bed before midnight, which makes getting up with the dawn basically impossible. They are naturally drawn to darkness and shadows thanks to their ruling planet of Pluto, named for the god of the underworld.

Pisces (February 19-March 20)

Pisces would probably stay in bed all day if they could get away with it. In part, it’s because this water sign has a closer connection to the world of dreams and imagination than most people. But they’re also just kind of lazy. Sorry, Pisces!

Sleeping in is one of Pisces’ greatest pleasures. They can spend more time exploring their dreams, which are often lucid, and less time dealing with the real world.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Gemini meant to get up early, they swear. They even set an alarm! But this sign has a bad habit of staying up late working on projects or simply getting lost down an internet rabbit hole. They are chronically sleep-deprived because their busy brains refuse to shut down. As a result, they have a hard time bounding out of bed in the morning. Some days, only the promise of coffee can lure them from underneath the blankets.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

A Taurus at rest tends to stay at rest. Once they’re doing something, Taurus wants to keep doing. That includes sleeping. It doesn’t help that this luxury-loving sign will often invest in the most luxurious bedding they can get. Their beds are soft, warm, and comfortable–and very hard to get out of in the mornings.

Leo (July 23-August 22)

It’s truly remarkable how much Leo resembles its power animal, the lion. If it were up to Leo, they’d nap someplace warm most of the day. Wake them up if something interesting happens–they don’t want to miss out on the fun–but otherwise leave them alone to enjoy their beauty rest. Leo has a terrible temper if they get woken up unexpectedly.
