Self-Reliant Signs

Some signs are comfortable being alone, some prefer being surrounded by people. For some, completing a task is easier in a team, for others working alone is the only possible way of getting things done. Read on to find out how independent your star sign actually is, according to astrology!

Is your sign self-reliant?


March 21 - April 19

Aries natives love being the center of attention (even if they say they don’t). The more people there are around them, the better this passionate star sign feels. Their lives are virtually impossible without other people. For them, it’s very important to know what other people think about them and their ideas.

Being a lone wolf isn’t a part of their fiery nature – they’re pack creatures. It’s very important for them to be a part of a group of people who think, feel, and act like them. Loneliness is something this sign’s natives can’t value or understand. If they have to be alone, it may result in anxiety and even depression.

Self-Reliant Signs: Aries


April 20 - May 20

Taureans are earthly people who love company and being surrounded by other people but if they need to get things done, they’d rather do it alone even if it means taking on too much work or facing lots of difficult challenges. They don’t care how difficult it is – they just think that alone they’ll do it better.

They’re stubborn, and even if other people offer their help, Taureans will politely refuse. But they’re not loners and if you’re throwing a party with lots of good food, they’ll gladly accept your invitation. They love having fun and spending time with other people but work is a completely different thing.


May 21 - June 20

Gemini natives are one of the most independent signs of the Zodiac. They prefer working alone (but working in a group doesn’t terrify them either), they know how to get things done without asking for help. Loneliness is not scary for them at all – they know how to value it.

They like talking to and meeting other people but they can also easily entertain themselves (especially if they have internet access). Reading books with a hot cup of cocoa, walking in a park alone, being alone with their thoughts – Gemini natives know how precious these simple things can be.


June 21 - July 22

Cancerians are sensitive people, and being alone can hurt them a lot. They’re very dependent – or even codependent. The support and help of others mean a lot to them. Loneliness scares them and may even cause anxiety and depression in this sensitive Zodiac sign. They love company and sharing thoughts with others.

In school, they were among those who preferred group projects to work alone. At work, it’s necessary for them to share their thoughts and ideas with others. Some Cancerians may even like working in an open space office – the more people there are around them, the better Cancer natives feel.

July 23 - August 22

For Leos, it’s crucial to have an army of fans around them. Without people who adore them and constantly tell them how beautiful, smart, and talented they are, they feel a bit lost. They just need to be the center of attention no matter what they do: walking down the street, working, or talking.

Most Leo natives are extroverts, meaning that they get their energy from being with other people. Being alone leaves them feeling anxious and sometimes even depressed. On the outside, they seem to be confident and happy but it masks the need to be told that they’re loved and appreciated by others.


August 23 - September 22

Virgos are one of the most independent signs of the Zodiac. They prefer to work alone and know how to get things done. They’re perfectionists who think that if you want to do something right, you need to do it yourself. They can be extremely stubborn and won’t allow you to help them even if they actually need your help.

Their need to be alone and, most importantly, work alone all the time can actually hurt them in the long run. Sometimes, it’s okay to delegate tasks and ask for help if you don’t know how to perform your task correctly. Virgos need to do this more often, or they may end up being exhausted and stressed out.


September 23 - October 23

Libra natives just know how to find and maintain balance, and when it comes to being independent, they’re pretty neutral. They love being alone but don’t mind being with others. For them, it’s easy to enjoy and value loneliness. Quietly reading a book may be one of their favorite pastime activities.

At the same time, they love company. They can work in a group or alone equally well. In fact, they don’t understand all the fuss about extroverts vs. introverts – because they can be both. They can be called ambiverts – they have both introverted and extroverted traits but neither trait is dominant.

October 24 - November 22

Scorpio is the most independent sign of the Zodiac. They say that no man is an island but this mysterious Sun sign comes pretty close. They’re so self-reliant that asking for help or support seems ridiculous to them. They just know how to get things done alone and are not scared of fighting their own fight.

Their inner world is so interesting and self-sufficient that Scorpios may seem a bit cold, distant, and mysterious – a bit too mysterious to some people. Scorpios should remember that being self-reliant and independent is fine and admirable but sometimes it’s okay to ask for help and support.


November 23 - December 21

Sags love going on adventures on their own but they also enjoy being around other people and sharing ideas. To them, it’s extremely important to be able to have someone on their side who can understand and support them no matter what. Loneliness doesn’t make them depressed but they’re happier when others are around.

Sags are charming and have that unique ability to make friends wherever they go, so they’re almost never alone. They’re always surrounded by people who love them – at school, at work, or on a journey. They may have issues working alone, though, because, for them, it gets boring pretty quickly.


December 22 - January 19

Capricorns can easily be both extroverts and introverts. Just like Libra natives, they often fail to understand the fuss around the introverts vs. extroverts business. They equally love being alone and having fun with others. They make friends with ease due to their charm and reliability, so they never have to be alone.

Even though they prefer working alone because they think that if you need to do something right (and Capricorns are all about doing things right), you need to do it yourself, they don’t mind asking for help when they really need it. If their friends offer them support, they gladly accept it.

Self-Reliant Signs: Capricorn


January 20 - February 19

Aquarian natives are supremely independent. If you can follow your own path, who needs other people? Loneliness doesn’t scare them – they know how to enjoy it and make the most out of it. Aquarians have little regard for what anyone else has to say. They’re independent thinkers and are not afraid of fighting their own fight.

Their need to be independent all the time often makes it hard for them to form close relationships and find someone who understands and supports them. Aquarians just think that they don’t need anyone’s support but sometimes, everyone needs a helping hand. Refusing help when you need it will just result in stress and anxiety.


February 20 - March 20

Pisces is probably the least independent sign of the Zodiac. Being completely alone is something they absolutely hate. They can’t bear the thought of being alone and having no one to share their wild thoughts and ideas with. They may enjoy reading a book or drawing a picture alone but they afterward need to discuss it with someone.

At work, they prefer to be a part of a team – the bigger the team is, the better. Sharing their thoughts and listening to what others have to say is the best thing for them ever. They love being a part of something bigger – it makes them feel safe and comfortable. Working independently absolutely terrifies almost all Pisceans.
