Just the idea of “peace” seems so… dreamy, so fulfilling.
After experiences filled with divisive, destructive energy, it would be nice to catch a breather. We just have to hope we still have it within us to want peace, to create peace, and to live in it.
But the most peaceful zodiac signs in astrology go through phases of wanting peace and having a calm atmosphere.
We truly do know in our hearts that it’s so much better to be at peace than it is to be living in constant stress, as we all seem to be doing. We’ve tried meditation, breathing exercises, yoga; we’ve gone on silent sabbaticals, and we’ve tried to focus our minds on nothingness, all for the purpose of finding something everlasting — something detached and easy.
Have you noticed that there are certain people in your life who seem to come alive in anger? Anger gives them purpose, and arguing, fighting and defending seems to bring them energy, joy even.
It’s easy to get caught up in anger and the fires of hate, but there is another side to that coin, and that’s the side of peace and peaceful people. In this ugly world, there are people who do not care for agitation, 24/7.
Some people who are born under certain zodiac signs are naturally swayed by the idea of a truly chill life, and they do their very best to achieve such a thing.
Who are the most peaceful zodiac signs?
1. Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
While you can stand your own and will fight if pressed, you are much more of a pacifist than a warrior, and that stance is exactly what makes you such a zen student, Cancer.
You take the time to open to your environment, you care about your surroundings, and the materialistic things in your life all have a purpose: to bring you peace and calm. You are the person who keeps an altar, worships Pagan Goddesses, honors nature, and you feel they honor you back.
Life is balanced with you, Cancer, and you work hard to maintain what you’ve worked for. The day starts and ends in gratitude for you. You are a truly peaceful, zen person.
Of all zodiac signs, Cancer is the calmest and most relaxed. You’re able to maintain peace of mind during any conflict and are the best at finding peace amidst the chaos.
2. Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
With a reputation for being the bossiest, most demanding sign of the zodiac, Capricorn, you also know that effort must be met with downtime. Your downtime is very special, however, because it’s not just “taking off from work” — it’s setting aside time to be yourself, without anyone else around.
You love to indulge in ritual, whether it’s of a religious nature or not. You are someone who finds great peace in repetition, chanting, reading scripture, and studying ancient wisdom. You take from the great books, and you use the lessons in your everyday life.
You are committed to finding peace in your life, and with proper attention and discipline, you usually find what you are looking for, Capricorn. And as an incredibly gentle zodiac sign, your calm and composured attitude is a breath of fresh air.
3. Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Libra, you’re a loner and are sometimes quite lonely, but you’ve perfected that lonely state by making it into a statement of peace and silence.
You know you’ve done wrong, and you also know that it doesn’t help you to spend your life in regret, so, thankfully, you know how to get yourself out of a funk.
Your goal is peace; you will meditate and chant to transcend the mundane world. You may not always do the right thing towards people, but your guilt complex is so great that it’s forced you into self-reflection; in that state, you do your best work.
Libras are both the quietest and kindest zodiac sign, choosing to rarely engage in arguments and steer clear of confrontation. You are all potential, Libra. And once you find peace, you are able to sustain it for a lifetime.
4. Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Life has been hard for you, Aquarius, and you want some good ol’ rest and relaxation. But more, you desire peace. It’s in your nature.
You are the person who goes on a Hajj, or a pilgrimage. You will leave your environment to find Shangri-la, higher ground. You are the very person who will seek enlightenment in a faraway place because you know that you need change.
You accept the idea of change, and though it’s hard-fought, you are ready.
You may end up living in an ashram or working on a farm. Community is a beautiful thing to you, as long as all involved have one common mission: to live in peace and harmony. This desire keeps you humble.
5. Pisces (February 19 – March 10)
As social as you are, Pisces, you are also someone who seriously craves alone time. In this case, “alone time” doesn’t necessarily mean self-care and doing things for yourself; it means taking time off from the crowd to regroup and stay calm and quiet.
Your life is filled with non-stop noise, endless requests and overt drama; you seek solace in contemplative things, like gardening or decorating. You’re the person in that rock garden, moving the sand in patterns.
As one of the most sensitive zodiac signs, you shock your friends and family with your desire to be alone as everyone thinks of you as the social butterfly. But in truth, you crave a zen lifestyle — Koi fish in a pond, that kind of thing.
You’ll get it, peaceful Pisces… you will.
