After that pretty decent dump of snow overnight, getting into work today was a struggle. Some of it is of course road conditions and weather, but when you add in bad drivers, it certainly doesn’t help things.
If you put any stock into astrology, and your horoscope and all that zodiac stuff, then this is for you. It’s a list of best ranked drivers based on your sign.
I’m not normally someone who puts much stock in this sort of thing, but as an Aries – I’ll admit I do have some road rage issues. Now I don’t think I’m a “bad driver” per-say…I just have zero patience for other bad drivers, and sometimes verbalize my thoughts on others driving abilities.
Anyways…here’s the list.
1. CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorn’s patience, efficiency, and ability to plan ahead makes them the best drivers of the zodiac. This sign paces themselves in everything, and they’re not prone to speeding or impulsive lane changes.
Always practical and realistic, Capricorn is the one who reminds you to choose a designated driver before the party even starts.
2. GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
For Gemini, life is all about working the crowd and gauging others’ moods and attitudes. This applies to driving as well: Gemini is a mental multi-tasker, expertly adjusting to changes in the traffic patterns and responding quickly when something unexpected happens.
3. VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
Virgo’s obsessive-compulsive affinity for rules and order can be a drag, but it’s a good trait to have on the road. You’ll hear them grumble a lot about other drivers.
Virgo is a perfectionist and can’t help but notice when anyone else makes a mistake. Their superior conscientiousness and precision gives them the right to complain.
4. LEO (July 23 – August 22)
Leo doesn’t so much share the road as they assume that everyone else must be there to serve as their royal escort and entourage. Just look at all these other cars around Leo, all going in the same direction… it must be a parade! With Leo as the star attraction!
Happily, Leo is a kind and generous monarch, and graciously allows their subjects plenty of room to maneuver.
5. SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
With their natural dramatic flair and love of being in control, Scorpio tends to be one of those drivers that you wish would get pulled over… if only they were actually doing anything wrong.
When Scorpio wants to be at the front of the lane, they’re not shy about getting there, but seldom go so far as to endanger anyone. Call them all the names you want; there’s nothing wrong with being a safely assertive driver.
6. LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
Libra might come off as flighty and frivolous, but their innate ability to “read a room” and get a feel for the energy flow works on the road, too. Libra senses problems ahead before they develop and knows when to hang back and avoid the mess.
7. CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
Cautious and slightly paranoid, Cancer is an excellent defensive driver. They tend to be a little too careful sometimes, though — the slow driver up ahead taking forever to turn right and making everyone nuts might very well be a nervous Cancer wishing they were safely back at home.
8. AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
Aquarius is, above all, an innovative, individualistic personality. They make their own rules. They’ll happily obey someone else’s law until it doesn’t suit their purposes.
If no one’s looking, Aquarius doesn’t see why they can’t go the wrong way down a one-way street or ignore the red light if there’s no cross-traffic. Hey, no one got hurt, so what’s the big deal?
9. PISCES (February 19 – March 20)
Pisces lives in an emotional dream world most of the time. That doesn’t mean that they can’t pay attention on the road, but because they can’t help reacting emotionally to everything around them, they tend to be easily upset by little things.
Pisces isn’t likely to lash out at other drivers, but it’s hard to see the stop signs when you’re always squinting through tears.
10. TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
Taurus is usually calm and methodical, but their stubborn, territorial nature can turn into competitive driving when someone cuts them off. Taurus is very protective of their own property, and that includes their space in the lane.
Luckily, they’d rather keep their car’s finish pristine than risk an accident, so they’ll usually just back off and stew about it for the rest of the day.
11. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
Sagittarius might be watching the road. They might be watching the other drivers. They might be fascinated with the shiny yellow van in the next lane. They might be staring at a cloud.
What does that bumper sticker say? Hey, that’s a cool yard decoration. There’s that little bistro where we— OOH, A SQUIRREL!
12. ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
Two words: ROAD RAGE. Aries’ planet is Mars, the god of war. Impulsive and headstrong, Aries would make a fabulous race car driver.
But on a normal day, they have to work hard to stay in control and remember that they’re just running to the grocery store, not commanding the lead chariot in a full-on epic battle.
