Many of your preferences are defined by your zodiac and horoscope. Your zodiac sign actually speaks a lot about your personality, the way you live your life and how you deal with different circumstances, so it is only natural that knowing these signs can also help you determine how much sleep you need on a daily basis.
Everyone works differently and their body clock varies with their personality — some signs love to stay up late and sleep in until the afternoon, while others of us prefer to retire to bed early and start the morning feeling refreshed and well-rested.
Keep reading below to find out your ideal bed time for each zodiac sign.
Aries, your unstoppable childlike energy can keep you going for days.
Sure, once in a while you’ll pass out, retreat to your cave and sleep like a baby, but for the most part, you have more energy than a manic episode. Your life is a rat race, and your sleep is a rest race.
Because Taurus needs at least seven hours of sleep, this sign should retire for the evening by 11 p.m. Taurus usually needs extra time in the morning to feel fully awake, so going to bed by 11 p.m. and starting the wake-up process at 6 a.m. is best for this stubborn sign.
Taurus also needs a gentle wake-up to set them up for a good day, according to Thrive Global. “Make sure your alarm clock is gentle; a rude awakening doesn’t sit well with the bull.”
Gemini has a bad habit of staying up way too late. Sometimes, she has so much on her mind that she simply can’t sleep!
But she prefers to get up early to get a head start on her day, so she tries to sleep early if she can. The best bed time for her is 11 PM, that way she can do what she wants at night but still not be miserable in the morning.
Homebody Cancer needs a nurturing sleep space and at least eight hours of shuteye to feel rested. This means that Cancer should be drifting off to dreamland by 11 p.m. at the latest, according to Ask My Oracle. Cancer actually does better on between nine and ten hours of sleep, but getting that much sack time isn’t always realistic.
Like a lion, you spend a lot of time getting in those hard naps. After all, you need a shitload of beauty rest. It’s how you stay looking so damn fly. You may be an extroverted sign, but you design your entire living space around solitude and relaxation because pampering yourself is so important to you.
Virgo is methodical and always planning ahead. To get the head start she needs in her day, she likes to get up very early in the morning. The best bed time for her is 8 PM.
