Earth sign Taurus is notoriously chill. They have a reputation for being stubborn and laid-back, even a little bit lazy. On the flip side of those traits, though, are an earthy sensuality and the need to think things through. Author and astrologer Lisa Barretta tells Best Life that grounded Taurus can "patiently assess most situations and calmly come up with a solution."
They also fare best in relaxed surroundings. "Taurus, more so than any other sign, demands that you leave your problems on the doorstep because they do not want any problems infringing on their comfortable routine," adds Barretta.
Sagittarius, the zodiac's final fire sign, possesses a profound curiosity, thirst for knowledge, and desire to see things in a greater context. They're also a mutable sign, which is associated with flexibility and adaptability. This makes them the most optimistic zodiac sign, with an ability to not take things too seriously.
"Sagittarians understand the big picture and that's why they enjoy just relaxing and keeping calm," explains Leah Goldberg, astrology content writer and editor at Svana. "They try to stay out of the way of people who gossip or cause drama, making their lives as stress-free and calm as possible."

Libra is the chameleon of the zodiac, wanting to please everyone at once. They're natural diplomats, and they fit in just about anywhere. As the sign of the scales, they'll take time to weigh the pros and cons of any situation rather than rush in headlong, which, along with their poise and social know-how, is part of the reason they seem so chill. As is the fact that they're ruled by Venus, the planet of harmony and love.
"Libra doesn't react when people are in their faces throwing judgment," says Goldberg. "They really know how to relax, especially when it's out in nature by the ocean somewhere." One chink in the chill armor: "The only exception is that Libra desperately needs beauty around them to calm their nerves," adds Goldberg.
Pisces is deeply empathetic and known for imagining a rosier picture than the one that may really exist. While they might hide from reality, Pisces wants to help others, often acting as a personal therapist to those around them. "Pisces can be exceptionally calm as they are so understanding of others' actions," says Goldberg.
Because they're aware of their sensitive nature, Pisces is deliberate about preserving their comfort zone. "As an emotional water sign, their energy is sapped when hanging around the wrong people, so Pisceans make sure to only put themselves in situations that make them feel calm and secure," explains Rachel Clare, an astrologer at Mysticsense. They also make sure they have ample time to work on their soothing artistic projects.

Ambitious, resilient, and unbelievably dedicated, Capricorns couldn't complete all their lofty career goals without the ability to focus and remain calm. "Capricorn is often considered to be the most reliable and dependable of all the zodiac signs, known for being very responsible and hardworking," says Matthias Dettmann, astrologer and founder of Valaros.
These traits apply outside the office, too. "Whenever there is a crisis, make sure you have a Capricorn on board," says Barretta. "This structured sign, ruled by Saturn, knows how to calmly approach any upheaval… They never let you see them sweat." They aren't likely to be distracted by drama. When everyone else is acting childish, they're serious and craving stability. And as wisdom comes with age, Capricorns become more calm and carefree as they get older87.
Cancerians are intuitive and loyal, and they expect the same from you. They're very in tune with their own feelings and those of others. According to Dettmann, this makes Cancer the calmest zodiac sign. "They are known for their gentle and nurturing nature."
Cancer is also the homebody of the zodiac, and as such, they love nothing more than relaxing in the bathtub or getting cozy on the couch and watching a movie. "This sensitive sign of the zodiac would rather go to bed than deal with any hyper, erratic circumstances," says Barretta. "They are all about keeping things calm because the crab doesn't do well with emotional overload. Cancer prefers to just chill out. They prefer small groups and one-on-one relationships, and they relish their alone time."
