As spring approaches in the Northern Hemisphere, every second Sunday in March, those in many regions must advance their clocks forward so that when the months are warmer ahead, it gets dark later and does not get light too early in the morning. This is known as Daylight Savings Time.
Many people dread it because, at first, it can get in the way of their sleep as they could lose an hour of sleep unless they go to bed one hour earlier the night before. Therefore, they are not well-rested right after the time change. Let’s see how you are affected by Daylight Savings Time by your zodiac sign.
Aries – You Bounce Back Quickly
Aries, you are energetic and passionate and don’t allow anything to get to you for too long. You may be a little tired from the time change as you have lost an hour of sleep. However, you have the perfect solution to take care of that: drinking several cups of espresso coffee. You are back to your usual self after that. However, you need to attempt to be more patient with others who are affected by the time change more than you are because not everyone can bounce back as quickly as you do.
Taurus – You Need An Extra Nap On Sunday
Taurus, you are the one that sticks heavily to routine as it gives you the security you need. And that is why you will want to carve out time on Sunday afternoon to nap, as you will have difficulty getting into the groove during the week on less rest. You need rest, which is the best way to cope with this time change. You need to do better with changes in routine and schedules as it is. However, the good thing is that you have known for a while that this time change is coming, so you would have prepared for it. In time, you will adjust to it until the clocks go backward again in the fall.
Gemini – Happy You Can See Your Friends Later In The Day When It Is Still Light
Gemini, you are versatile and adaptable, and very social. You can handle the sudden change in routine very well by getting extra sleep or drinking plenty of coffee like Aries. Therefore, the Daylight Savings Time change will only get to you for a short time. You will be happy to see your friends and hang out with them on patios (if it is warm enough) or anywhere outdoors later when it is still light outside. Therefore, you welcome Daylight Savings Time for this reason.
Cancer – Prioritize Sleep Before Anything Else
Cancer, you are the one that is there to take care of everyone else’s needs, and you will neglect your own. That is the last thing you should ever do, as that is one way to end up with burnout, and your caring nature will become resentment. You will be sleep deprived by the time change, so you need to prioritize getting rest before taking on any other work or taking care of anyone else. If you have young kids, that will be challenging. However, it will be necessary for you to get some rest before taking on anything else so you never end up with an empty cup.
Leo – You Don’t Let It Get You Down And Keep Moving Forward
Leo, you have big dreams and will not allow anyone or anything to get in the way of them. You also do not allow situations like the switch to Daylight Savings Time to get you down if you lose some sleep. As a result, you will not let it get to you and will keep going after your dreams anyway, even if you are a little tired. Make room for some rest, or you will burn out, as sleep deprivation is not good for anyone. Eventually, the adrenaline rush will end, and you can crash.
Virgo – It Will Force You To Take Care Of Yourself
Virgo, you are analytical, and you are the one that also meets the needs of others before you take care of your needs, like Cancer. The main difference is that you are not nearly as emotional as Cancer. However, when that time change happens, and you lose some sleep, you will feel it deeply, and it will get to you. You will end up getting irritable and exhausted. You will not be able to perform your tasks as well as you had hoped. Daylight Savings Time will be the one thing to let you know when you need to start taking care of yourself.
Libra – Can Create An Imbalance Within
Libra, you need peace and balance, so you will only handle the time change with Daylight Savings Time well. You can become very cranky and get involved in the drama because the lack of proper sleep creates a significant imbalance. What is the solution? You need to ensure that you get a nap during the day or you go to bed an hour earlier the night before. However, even then, the daylight shift will throw you off, and that can cause you to be out of sorts for a day or so. Be kind to yourself.
Scorpio – You Make The Best Of It By Being In-Tune With Your Body
Scorpio, you are very in tune with your body and emotions, so you are intense, passionate, and private. You are also aware that the switch to Daylight Savings Time will end up causing everything to go out of balance. You will likely get some extra sleep by going to bed the night before. However, you will pay attention to your needs. If you need an extra nap from the time change, you will take that extra nap. If you are well-rested, then you will go after what you need. Your needs come first!
Sagittarius – Excited The Sun Is Setting Later
Sagittarius, you are happy-go-lucky and excited about how the sun will begin to set later now that the time change has happened. You don’t care about losing an hour of sleep, as you look forward to having an extra hour or two of daylight. Like Gemini, you would be the one to look forward to meeting some friends at the patio later in the day while the sun is still out. Since the sun also begins to set earlier, you will also be happy to wake up when it is lighter so you can do your jog or whatever you enjoy doing first thing in the morning.
Capricorn – It Will Make You Irritable
Capricorn, you are very ambitious and goal-oriented and need your routine like the other earth signs. The lost hour of sleep will throw you off and cause you to be irritable since you will be determined to keep doing your work and going after your ambitions. That is the worst thing you can do based on that because you need your rest. Therefore, you have to use the Saturday to get some extra rest the night before, so the time change does not throw you too much, or rest on Sunday, and best of all, take a break. You need it anyway, regardless of the situation with the time.
Aquarius – You Won’t Notice It Because You Will Be Busy
Aquarius, you do your thing and do not allow anything to get to you too much. As a result, you will need to check your email and social media to notice the loss of an hour of sleep in Daylight Savings Time. You will also see many users on social media complain about the time change, and you will find it confusing why so many people complain about it. If you are tired as the day progresses, you will crash earlier that night. The next day, you go get on with it just fine.
Pisces – Take It As An Opportunity To Rest
Pisces, you are dreamy, spiritual, and artsy. You will be very tired from the time change, but you will also take it as an opportunity to get some rest which is your favorite thing to do. You can get your favorite takeout, listen to music, watch a movie, or read your favorite book. It is best too if you do that because, on Monday, that is when it will hit you. You will not want to work and even call in sick, or if you own a business, you will only take the day off if you feel well-rested.
Daylight Savings Time happens right before spring each year, and it can wreak havoc on your circadian rhythm, making you irritable and tired over the next few days. Everyone has their way of handling the time change, and you may recognize yourself in how you handle it. Suppose you handle it well, like Sagittarius, Leo, or Aquarius; good for you. However, even if that is the case, ensure you get the rest you need. Eventually, it will catch up with you.
