The Zodiac Signs Ranked From Most To Least Adventurous

Your astrological sign is a window into the soul. It can reveal intimate details about your personality, from how you fall in love and the type of careers you are best suited for, to your unique strengths and weaknesses. According to Astrotalk, it can also be a good guide for finding out how adventurous you are. 

Not all astrological signs have personalities suited to adventure and risk (via Astrofame). For example, many earth signs prefer the comforts of home and the peace of a well-established routine while some fire signs prefer living life on the edge. Some zodiac signs seek out adventure in the form of learning a new skill or participating in extreme sports, like white water rafting. Others get a thrill from traveling to exotic locales or spending time immersing themselves in the history and cuisine of a new culture. 

Whether you're curious about your own sign's taste for adventure or want to know if your crush is going to make you jump out of airplanes on your next date, use this guide to find out where each astrological sign ranks on the list of most to least adventurous.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

When it comes to adventurous signs, fiery Sagittarius wears the crown. Not only are they extroverted explorers but they have a restless, boundless, powerful zest for life. They are also upbeat, optimistic people who can easily find joy and fun in even the dullest of situations. According to Ohio University, Sagittarians have an insatiable itch for travel. Adventure calls to these free spirits in a way that some might call unsafe but brings them delightful and meaningful experiences. The AstroTwins tell Refinery29 that Sagittarius is always up for anything. "Life is an endless voyage and exploration for you. You're absolutely never bored. You love to try new things which makes you interesting to be around," they said.

Sagittarians are also extremely adaptable and open-minded people. While others are set in the comfort of their routines and are afraid of change, Sagittarius embraces it, preferring to explore the unknown in order to get the most out of what the world and its diverse groups of people have to offer. They also aren't afraid to ask hard questions and are willing to shift their perspectives if it means expanding their horizons. Although their adventurous hearts make them exciting to be around, it can also cause a fear of commitment. Sagittarians are extremely independent people that crave freedom in both friendships and romantic relationships. When given the choice between settling down and hopping on the next plane to anywhere, Sagittarius will always choose the latter.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Individuals born under the sign of the ram are the harbingers of the astrological year and spring, a time of change, growth, and new life. As a fire cardinal sign, Aries has an innate sense of action and adventure that carries them through life. "They're so courageous and brave and aren't in their heads about who they are," astrologer and social worker Monisha Holmes, MSW tells Well+Good. "A lot of them allow themselves permission to just be in charge and live their lives to the fullest."

Aries has a curious heart and a fearlessness that makes them a bit of a daredevil. They aren't afraid of taking risks in their career or relationships. They also firmly believe that the best way to live life and authentically express themselves is through experimentation (via  Astrology Zone). Aries are innovators with an inspiring can-do attitude. They can effortlessly turn the most boring, uneventful day into a memorable adventure. Furthermore, they are born leaders who inspire others to join them on their wild adventures.

This sign is also known for its impatient, fast-paced nature. Chris Brennan of The Astrology Podcast notes, " of the underlying things that I keep coming back to as an archetype for Aries is the notion of movement and speed and quickness... and sometimes that can be really constructive, like striking while the iron is hot..." Aries jumps headfirst into things they are passionate about, be it a romantic relationship, a new experience, or a hobby.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

Mysterious, edgy, anti-conformist Scorpios crave the unknown (via Astrotalk). This is largely a result of their dual planetary rulership. Scorpio is a water sign ruled by Pluto and Mars. Pluto is the planet of transformation, renewal, exploration, and examination (via Cafe Astrology). On the other hand, Mars is a planet associated with aggressive energy, drive, impulsive action, and assertion. The intense combination makes Scorpios incredibly brave and powerful people who aren't afraid to explore the shadows of life.

Scorpios also like to walk on the wild side. They love to travel, particularly to dangerous locations off the beaten path that the average tourist wouldn't dare tread. However, their sense of adventure is more about unearthing hidden truths and finding meaning in life's greatest mysteries. They prefer to live in the moment, loving the chaos of unpredictability and the excitement each new challenge brings. They also have an insatiable thirst for knowledge. EAstroHelp notes that their natural curiosity and powerful observation skills may be a bit unnerving to the people around them, but that these skills help them navigate the world in a way that suits their dark personalities best. Like Aries, Scorpio is known for diving headfirst into the deepest, darkest sides of their friendships and romantic relationships simply because it excites them to do so.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

As a fixed sign, Aquarius is often not thought of as an overly adventurous sign. They are generally thought to be stuck in their ways, stubborn, and stable with a reverence for tradition and consistency. Aquarius may share some of these traits with their fellow fixed signs, but they have a radical nature that allows them to forge new, unexpected paths. They are open-minded, self-confident visionaries and innovators who are constantly thinking of new ways to implement change in the world. "Aquarians are really humanitarians and do a lot of philanthropy — they want to make the world a better place, and they see it as their mission in life," astrologer and wellness expert Corina Crysler tells Well+Good. "They feel an innate responsibility to help people, and have a problem with authority being misused ... they're always advocating for change."

The influence of Uranus makes Aquarians a sign that does not do well with boredom. Sometimes this makes Aquarius a bit reckless. As the planet of freedom, rebellion, and revolutionary vision, Uranus allows Aquarius the power for original thought (via Astrograph). They are creative people that are full of ideas, which they love to talk about and use to move civilization and technology forward. Aquarius also march to the beat of their own drum and refuse to follow trends or do what everyone else is doing. When it comes to traveling, Aquarius prefers exploring lands where they can immerse themselves in culture and history.

Gemini (May 21 - June 21)

For the mutable air sign Gemini, every moment of every day is an adventure. Among the many strengths of this complex, dual-natured sign is the ability to adapt. They aren't bothered by a sudden change in plans and will happily go wherever the day takes them, preferring to view the shift as just another opportunity to have a little fun. Playful and restless Geminis hate being bored and prefer to break free from the stifling, ordinary day-to-day expectations which they find incredibly dull. According to PrepScholar, Geminis also have easy-going natures that make them down to try anything at least once. They never turn down a dare, and love spontaneity.

Their minds are also a constant whir of thoughts and ideas, which allows them to explore a plethora of paths and interests (via ZodiacFire). As Astrologer and author Rachel Lang tells Women's Health, "[Geminis] get restless if they feel like they're staying in place for too long. I like to think that Geminis are just insatiably curious and have a variety of interests. You are a constant teacher and student at the same time." Sometimes their restless spirits make Geminis hard to keep up with. They are constantly on the move, eager to experience new things, and let their wild, untamed hearts roam free.

Libra (September 22 - October 23)

Libras have a reputation for being elegant, glamorous, diplomatic people pleasers with a penchant for decadent comforts, which means their style of adventure looks a little different from other signs. "An ideal vacation for a Libra would be going somewhere where they can go shopping and have really great meals and coffee and sweets," astrologer Lisa Stardust tells Refinery29. As the beautiful people of the astrological world, Libras aren't likely to partake in adrenaline-boosting activities or spend much time exploring nature. They prefer adventures that ooze class and sophistication, as well as the ability to stay in 5-star hotels that photograph well. Cruises, all-inclusive resorts, and luxury spas are all ideal adventure spots for Libras.

Despite their preference for luxury, Libras have a chameleon-like knack for fitting in wherever they end up. According to AstroStyle, Libra is an adventurous, fearless, and highly cultured traveler that loves experiencing exotic locales. They genuinely enjoy trying new things and will try anything at least once, especially if it appeals to their sense of style or taste. Although luxury and glamor are key elements to any Libra adventure, what truly excites a Libra is the opportunity to expand their mind and worldview. They are eager to adventure to places where they can learn and converse with people who are different from them and feel intellectually stimulated.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

According to Co-Star, Pisces are sensitive, dreamy, and intuitive people who experience a deep well of intense emotions at all times. Ruled by the planet Neptune, also known as the Planet of Mist, Pisces experience deep compassion for others (via Astrology Zone). They also live their lives like a fantasy, preferring to escape the coarseness of reality and live inside their own heads.

Despite their soft, gentle hearts and penchant for wallowing in melancholy, Pisces have an adventurous streak that aligns with their go-with-the-flow attitude. According to, ordinary life is too stifling for the artistic-minded Pisces. They need some semblance of adventure or awe-inspiring change in order to feel creatively fulfilled. Astrotalk notes that Pisces are typically satisfied with small adventures that help them experience fun and playfulness. However, bold Pisces will pursue global travel in order to forget their problems and break free from their routine. Pisceans appreciate the beauty and culture found in exotic places. They spend their vacations going on walking tours to take in the architecture and history, and exploring every museum and outdoor market they stumble upon.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

Leos have a well-developed adventure streak and a courageous soul. Ruled by the sun, these radiant, fiery lions possess a natural confidence and a strong sense of self-assurance that allows them to embark on spectacular, life-changing journeys (via They have a strong sense of purpose and effortlessly overcome the obstacles that life throws their way, wielding their charm and optimism as weapons others are powerless to resist.

Though they aren't a fearful sign, Leos aren't likely to go skydiving or become interested in motorcycle stunt riding. Instead, their brand of adventure is more suited to creative expression, performance, and leadership opportunities. They have an innate ability to always be the center of attention and a flamboyant flair for the dramatic. According to Crystal B. Astrology Leos are also highly ambitious and independent-minded. They are proud of their accomplishments, each of which they consider their own personal adventure, and thoroughly enjoy sharing their wins with the world.

When it comes to adventurous travel, Leos have expensive tastes and a love of upscale culture (via Condé Nast Traveler). A fancy stay at a luxurious hotel or a table at the hottest restaurant in town is sure to scratch Leo's itch for adventure. For adventures closer to home, Leos love scoring tickets for concerts, music festivals, Broadway plays, and other artistic displays.

Virgo (August 22 - September 22)

Virgos are a complex zodiac sign that lives their lives somewhere between grounded perfectionism and practical adaptability. They are highly pragmatic and productive individuals that don't often give themselves over to passion, preferring to control and schedule the chaos of life into something resembling order (via Co-Star). As a result, Virgos aren't big on adventure. At least not when the adventure is unplanned. According to Metropolitan Girls, Virgos prefer to be able to prepare and reflect before making a decision. They look before they leap, not for fear of falling but for love of a picture-perfect existence. Virgos are the type of people who look up a menu before going to a restaurant and read product reviews religiously before making a purchase.

Virgo is ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication, logic, intellect, and reasoning. "Mercury influences Virgoan energy by making them detailed, service-oriented, and routine-focused," astrologer Astrodim tells Bustle. "Virgo can be perfectionists and their resourcefulness can help others reach their goals. They are good at breaking things down into actionable plans to make aspirations believable and reachable. Virgos will conscientiously study every move and do their research when going after what they want, thanks to their calculated ruling planet." Mercury, named for the messenger of the gods in Greek mythology, is also associated with motion and transportation. Although Virgos aren't big on spontaneous adventures, they do find joy in planning vacations and making detailed itineraries.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

According to The Cut, Capricorns are a determined earth sign that prefers to live a life grounded in the present. They have supreme focus and an internal drive that keeps them moving forward, regardless of whatever obstacles or challenges come their way. They don't care for whimsy or playfulness, finding these things just get in the way of their goals. notes that cardinal Capricorn is ruled by planet Saturn. Saturn is all about rules, regulations, discipline, and responsibility. This planet's mature, structured energy gives Capricorn a firm grasp on reality but also makes them set impossibly high standards. "That Cardinal energy is going to make them want to just keep going," Astrologer and tarot reader Maria Sofia Marmanides tells Well+Good. "It's like, 'Okay, what's next? What can I do next? What other thing can I achieve? It's not just achievement, it becomes overachievement."

This reliance on achieving everything they possibly can in their lives and careers makes Capricorn come off as a bit rigid. However, they have their own ways of blowing off steam and experiencing the best of what life has to offer. They love spending time with their friends and hosting get-togethers with great music and delicious food. They also have a great appreciation for art and often use art as a way to express themselves more fully.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

If Cancer had a catchphrase, it would be: "Let's just stay home." These emotional, sensitive, and nurturing crabs are extreme homebodies that take great pride in the look, feel, and coziness of their physical abode. It is the one place on earth where they feel safe enough to let down their walls and be their authentic selves. According to Astrology Answers, Cancer also highly values security. They guard their home base and the people that live within it with a steadfast resilience.

Labyrinthos notes that this reliance on the home is due to Cancer's association with the fourth house. Ruled by the emotional moon, the fourth house connects this sign to ancestry, family, home, and roots. With the domicile as their domain, Cancers are highly attuned to the concept of home and work hard to build a home they can feel proud of and protected by (via New York Post). Cancers exude warm, nurturing energy wherever they go and can give that sense of protection and stability to the people around them.

Generally, Cancer gets more excited about the idea of travel than the actual execution. When Cancer does feel like shaking things up, they require a specific type of trip where they can experience the comforts of home. "Short trips that don't take them far from home are best, especially ones where they are surrounded by family and friends," Athena Perrakis, founder of Sage Goddess, a spiritual shop and reference source, tells Reader's Digest.

Taurus (April 20 to May 20)

Taurus wears the crown for the least adventurous zodiac sign. They are a fixed earth sign, meaning they are deeply rooted in their routines, beliefs, and opinions. According to Kyle Thomas Astrology, Taurus is extremely cautious and moves slowly to avoid unwelcome surprises. They despise change of any kind because it opens up the potential for mistakes or dangers they don't care to deal with. They are generally quite passive people, but if approached with a spontaneous proposal or surprise trip, they may get a bit testy.

Although they are known to be quite stubborn, Taurus is a hardworking sign that appreciates staying in their own lane and accumulating wealth. Their association with the planet Venus gives them a love of pleasure, luxury, and the finer things in life, so they often use their wealth to surround themselves with beautiful creature comforts. "Taurus rules the second house of the Zodiac, which is all about material things," astrologer, psychic, and tarot reader Leah Goldberg tells BestLife. "They often measure their self-worth by how much money they make and what they're able to buy." They like to possess things, from property to expensive art, and would rather invest their time and energy into pursuing those passions than jetting off on spur-of-the-moment trips.
