You might be a night owl or an early bird, but it turns out that the stars have their say when it comes to your sleep patterns. And no matter whether you are fighting against the natural tendencies of your zodiac sign or not: Depending on the zodiac sign, there are a certain number of hours of nightly sleep that keep your body balanced and healthy.
Of course, it’s better if you listen to your body and the stars – even if that means going to bed earlier than you would like to secure those extra minutes – because you might feel sick, or tired, or rather feeling hostile when you get too little sleep.
Good news – we’ve figured out how many hours it takes you each night, depending on your zodiac sign, to avoid being the angry, bitter person.
