What Are the Most Independent Zodiac Signs? (An Overview)

Exactly how do you determine what are the most independent zodiac signs? These people are self-confident and highly assertive. They can do so because they have their expertise and intuition to rely on for decision-making. Thus, there’s no need to ask permission from others to make sure they’re doing the right thing. 

Independent people are aware of what’s best for them and so they like working alone without having to dance to the beat of others. This way they finish faster and accomplish more. And they value other people’s freedom as much as they do their own. But this doesn’t make that they’re too self-assured so they no longer make any mistakes. 

On the contrary, they make a lot of room for mistakes but don’t beat themselves up for it. They know it’s part of the learning process which is good because next time they don’t have to start from scratch but from an experienced point of view. So here’s our list of the most independent zodiac signs, ranked. 

Aries (March 21- April 20)


Topping our list of the most independent zodiac signs is none other than Aries. They are oozing with sheer grit and determination. Arians are not afraid to make a lot of mistakes, nor can you shame them into feeling bad or guilty about them. They would rather have their go at it than listen to you telling them what to do and how to do it. You can spend all the time that you want telling them how bad an idea is, but when they feel in their heart that it is the right thing to do, they do it. Their actions are fueled by optimism and their drive for adventures. If they stumble and fall, it’s no big deal to them. They simply dust themselves off and try again. 

Capricorn (December 22, January 19)


When it comes to commitment and hard work, very few can beat a Capricorn. And because they are so independent, this zodiac can survive on an island for years without having to be rescued. Resourceful and industrious, Capricorns don’t need others to give them constant affirmations to make them feel good about themselves. They love the company of people who genuinely care for them, but they also know the value of solitude and what it can do for one’s soul. This zodiac also has amazing coping mechanisms and knows how to keep cool under pressure. 

Aquarius (January 20- February 19)


The third on our list of the most independent zodiac signs is Aquarius. If you believe you can control how Aquarians think and feel, you can’t. Society tries but constantly fails to influence them, especially in their decision-making process. You cannot intimidate or coerce them into following a set of rules especially if they feel it’s total BS. However, you can try to reason with them to see your point of view. 

Capricorns are calm and gentle if they know you mean no harm. But once you try to scare or intimidate them, expect their rebellious spirit to take over. They know what they want and won’t allow themselves to keep up with the latest trends or recommendations to please everyone but themselves. 

Sagittarius (November 23- December 21)


For Sagittarius, liberty is their top priority. They need to be able to do what they want, wherever they are (at home, in school, at work), with whomever they like. Sags realize this is best done independently, for relying on other people’s judgments will only ruin their plans. The last thing they want is to have to ask permission from anyone before they could proceed with things they want to do because if you don’t want to, they’ll go ahead and do it anyway. 

If you think foreign places with different cultures and zero knowledge of their language could deter them from going, you’re wrong. Nothing appeals to Sagittarians more than challenging adventures. They will never panic and if nothing else, situations like these only pique their excitement. 

Leo (July 23-August 22)

Leos loathe being told what to do. Yes, they will love and protect you fiercely in a steadfast fashion, but this doesn’t mean you have them on a string, ready and waiting at your every beck and call. When they have a dream or passion they want to pursue or places they want to explore, the worst thing you can do is tell them no. 

You cannot mold a Leo. Nor could you force them to conform, or pretend to be somebody or something they are not. They have their own identity and will always want to stay true to themselves. Leos would rather die and perish than let go of their independence and individuality. Getting support from family and friends is an added bonus, but not a requirement for them to succeed. 

Virgo (August 23- September 22)


Virgos have the best cheerleaders on earth- themselves. They’re so independent they truly believe in their hearts that no one else can do things better than they do. And this is not some blind type of arrogance that one cannot stand. Virgos know for a fact that they are right because this belief is backed by research and hundreds of hours of studying and finding various ways of solving a problem. Does this mean they never ask for help? Of course, they do, but this is the last resort. Only after trying everything and nothing works will they go up to you in need of assistance. 

Taurus (April 21- May 20)


The seventh zodiac on our list is Taurus. Just like Virgo, they know how to work and do things in on their own. They don’t like having to ask permission on how and when to proceed. These bulls are down-to-earth, hardworking, and practical. Taurus hate the idea of having to bother people for help or asking for favors, especially since they know how favors go. You either pay it forward or return it. Relying on others gives them nightmares and puts them in a bad mood. The idea is so frustrating that they will do anything to avoid it. 

Gemini (May 21- June 20)


These mutable signs can be likened to a chameleon who can adapt to its environment, and push forward regardless of the circumstances. Gemini takes criticism with a grain of salt and never takes it to heart. Other people’s opinions don’t matter to them as much as their mental health. As long as they know they’re not hurting anybody while doing their own thing, they simply go as they please. 

When Geminis set their laser eye focus on something they want to achieve, they won’t stop until it’s done. Whether it’s getting that dream job, closing that sale, or convincing someone to see that they are “the one”. They can be relentless and will wear you down until you agree to what they want just to get them out of your hair. But Geminis are really friendly and are okay with asking for sound advice every now and then. And if they don’t get it, well, it’s not the end of the world for them. 

Scorpio (October 23- November 22)


Scorpios look like independent souls who have it all figured out on the outside but are struggling for control within. Their tough exterior makes it hard for people to believe that they also crave intimacy, care, and protection. What every one sees is their addiction to power and firmly set goals that they plan to accomplish by hook or by crook. 

This is mainly the reason why no one is eager to help them, unless they reach out, genuinely asking for it. And when Scorpios fall, they fall hard, head first on the ground. All that autonomy, power, and ambitions fly out the window when thoughts, longing, and desires for the other person consume them. 

Cancer (June 21- July 22)


Just like their fellow water signs, Cancers are extremely sensitive and are pure empaths. Nothing is more important to them than the bonds and relationships they have built over the years. They become so attached to these people that the mere thought of being away from them makes them super lonely and insecure. This is one of the reasons why they turn down amazing opportunities if it means living abroad or miles away from home. The last thing they want to feel is alone. 

Not everyone’s opinions matter, only those that they value the most. They will ask and heed their advice before making any long-term decisions. It’s hard for them to find people they trust. Yes, the thought of being stuck in the same place scares them, but the idea of change and having to adjust to it terrifies them even more. 

Pisces (February 20- March 20)


Here’s another zodiac sign that spends more time trying to solve other people’s problems than their own. Pisces will literally go out of its way to help you but also expects the same thing in return. They see things from everyone’s point of view so it’s a bit difficult and confusing for them when the time comes to take a stand and make hard decisions. Pisces won’t let it show but they can be pretty insecure and usually don’t trust their own judgment. So they would rather let other people make decisions and be wrong, rather than take the risk of making it themselves and then getting the blame if things go south. 

Libra (September 23- October 22)


Last on our list of the most independent zodiac signs is Libra. This air sign is known to be diplomatic, as you can see by its scales symbol. These are the peacemakers among the zodiacs and always encourage everyone to put themselves in someone else’s shoes to gain more empathy and understanding. 

On the other hand, Libras are also known for being indecisive and insecure when they need to do things all by themselves. They feel more comfortable if they stay in a group where there are more assertive people who can make better choices than them. When they’re alone they lose their sense of direction and have a vague idea of how to go on. 

The Highs and Lows of the Most Independent Zodiac Signs

Just like everything else in life, this has to be in moderation. Too much independence can be isolating and people can even misinterpret it as defiance or arrogance. On the other hand, being too dependent on others can be restricting and bothersome even for people you love. Striking the perfect balance is the key. Knowing when to do things on your own when you’re perfectly capable of doing so, and asking for assistance when you need some. When you learn how to do this, you have one less thing to worry about.
