5 Laziest Zodiac Signs

Lazy is a loaded word that conjures up the image of the slovenly couch potato. But there's more to it. All of us can be lazy—even workaholic Capricorns, busy Geminis and obsessive Virgos. That said, a few signs deserve this less-than-flattering title more than the others.

Taurus tops the list, not because they are inherently afraid of work (in fact they're known for their dedication), but because their fondness for comfort can lead to complacency. Material success and security drive a Taurus. Once a Bull achieves these goals, they might not feel compelled to strive for more. Instead, that's the time to kick back, smell the roses and enjoy life on easy street.

For Cancers, laziness takes root in their tendency to worry. There's nothing less productive than just sitting around fretting about potential future negative outcomes, but this is a regular pastime for some Crabs. Eventually, all of this idle agonizing becomes immobilizing. Consequently, Cancers can end up overeating, sitting around or wasting their time on meaningless things in an effort to distract themselves from their emotions.

Scorpio is a bit more like Taurus. After all, signs on the opposite ends of the zodiac often share characteristics. Similar to Bulls, Scorpios share a love for life's finer things. While Scorpios have a thirst for power, they often become bogged down by dark thoughts and the pursuit of guilty pleasures. Their laziness stems from overindulgence (and sometimes debauchery).

Then there's Pisces, probably the most misunderstood sign of the zodiac. Fish might be written off as loafers and space cadets, but there's more to them. They're so vulnerable that they require a lot of space and time to recover from emotional wounds. If that turns into a pattern of wallowing, it becomes difficult for them to get much done.

Sure, plenty of Leos work hard, but there also isn't another sign that plays as hard as they do. Whether it's racking up high scores on Candy Crush or taking leisurely lunch breaks, this sign is extremely talented at finding fun—often at productivity's expense. To top it off, if Leo is already adored at work or at home, they may not feel motivated to put forth extra effort.
