Which Sun Signs Are Most Minimalist?

 

Is it possible to data-crunch the Sun Sign traits to work out which signs are more inclined to be hoarders? And, by contrast, minimalists?

Astro-Cliche wise, it tends to be Taureans & Cancerians who hover at the Hoarding end of the spectrum whilst Pisceans and Saggos live at the minimalist end.  Taurus/Crab energy can cling and enjoy their stuff a lot. Sometimes too much. Whereas Pisces and Sagg often feel like too much stuff weighs them down.

But is this fair?

I’m definitely minimalist – exhibiting the most opposite set of characteristics to hoarding you can imagine.

If you unclutter for leisure and consider it a Zen activity, you ain’t at any risk of a hoarding attack any time soon.

So come clean with your hoarding/declutter style, cite your astro-details and let’s see if we can get a concept of the Sun sign traits as they pertain to minimalism. Or, hoarding. 

FYI: Marie Kondo has the Sun conjunct Mercury in Libra.

cancer sun conjuncts saturn.
Virgo rising conjunct virgo venus.

Virgo wins out here!!!!

Definitely NOT a hoarder. Never cared much for “things”, except for books. I have moments where I will get sick of what I do have and just toss it. Scorpio Sun, Moon, Sagittarius rising.

Sun in Libra, but have Uranus, Pluto and Venus in Virgo!! I’m fairly minimal and zen like. However, every now and then I attempt to hoard, but I end up either giving things to others who have not been gifted such pleasures or I have a cleansing of the house/property!! Crabs certainly don’t enjoy my zen thing! Lol!! 😉

Pisces sun, aries moon, Leo ascendant. Notorious clean freak and book enthusiast. I’m a minimalist. The hubby is a Taurus sun/ascendant,libra moon, Kataka Venus. He’s a decorator and collector of movies but a clean freak too. He’s not a hoarder, but keeps our home from looking too sterile.

Virgo.. with Cancer mind i think…
I hoard a bit…
and when I’m away like just recently… I was decluttering like mad in my head… ‘I’ll clean out that drawer.. and that cupboard when I get home” I’d soooo love to have a completely organised and decluttered home.

get home… nah.. too many other things way more inviting then de-cluttering. 🙁

Leo Sun/Sagg Asc. Prefer minimalist with a slight urge to collect vintage clothing, cookware, and books (some significant Virgo and Cancer placements, lol) My Sagg asc loves to purge after I start feeling overwhelmed by stuff. However, I live with two children and one man, and they are definitely on the hoarder edge of life: Man is Virgo sun/Cancer Asc he is a hoarder and a terrible procrastinator, especially about decluttering. Eldest is Pisces Sun She often tells me every single item is precious to her. She will not get rid of anything and her room is very full of… Read more »

Libra Sun. Capricorn Moon. Scorpio Rising. Total hoarder of things I don’t want, largely due to disorganization causing me to fear throwing away the wrong piece of paper, etc. Least favorite trait of mine! I have other good ones, but this one…. sigh.

Aqua rising, Aries sun, Cancer moon. I feel like the Aquarian and Arien influences are constantly struggling with the Cancer moon. The As want minimalist space, a blank canvas (with lots of space for moving around in! sez Aries), and the Cancer moon just clutches her belongings lovingly, neurotically to her–“no, no, we can’t get rid of that yet, let’s just put it down in the basement. no, no, we can’t get rid of those notebooks, what if we just stack them neatly in the closet over here?” 🙂 This struggle has been particularly strong lately, like ever since I… Read more »

Pisces Sun, Cap Moon, Cancer Rising – definitely a minimalist, mostly b/c I love “shedding the skin” of old lives. So many clothes I miss, but after a point, they didn’t seem like me anymore. If I don’t use/need it, I don’t want it.

Funny thing: my parents are Taurus and Cancer and both are hoarders to what I think everyone would consider a pretty extreme level. I personally am an Aquarius and have a bit of a tendency to want to hold on to stuff but because I am truly terrified of it getting out of control and also have learned that tidiness makes me feel much more sane/happy I go bonkers every so often and get rid of absolutely everything that’s not nailed down. Most recently I carted probably ten boxes of books -including a ton of expensive art books and about… Read more »

Unintentional hoarder? I have a lot of crap, a lot of clothes, BOOKS. My books I cannot part with and the entire reason why I got an ereader was to prevent additions (so far it is working).

I have tons of stuff and hate it, but not as much as I hate cleaning otherwise I would have a lot less. There is always way more interesting stuff and why doesn’t someone just invent a hockety pockety Merlin bag already.

Leo sun, strong Virgo Merc, Gem Asc… I have a love-hate relationship with stuff. There is stuff everywhere around me – not hoarded, but not as organised or sparse as I would like it to be. My Venus in Virgo would love to clear out all the clutter but I’m too busy doing a million other things at once.

Sag, pisces rising. Guess I’m the confirmation to this theory 🙂 I go through all of my stuff every two/three months and do a charity/garbage haul (this includes clothes, books, css, toiletries, makeup, absolutely everything). I can’t stand to have things hanging around that I don’t use regularly. I loathe knick-knacks, in my house I only have the essentials (as in I recently gave my mother a friyng pan because I had two and I coudn’t stand seeing them both in my kitchen drawers), no pictures on the walls, everything put away and out of sight.

I’m a crab and do not hoard, but an old Pisces friend of mine was a terrible hoarder, complete with walls of bookcases and plates plastered on the walls. She was a Leo Rise, but did have a Cancer Moon. I am not minimalist, but I can’t stand mess, so I do tend to keep the accumulation to a healthy level. I don’t like minimalism either, as it tends to be so sterile and cold, so do have enough personal love items about that keep my environment homely.

Do late degree or early degree planets (anaretic?) have any correlation to hoarding or minimalist. I have merc and mars uranus sun. Most of my life I’ve been coming and going and never very settled in one spot. I’ll stay in one place for a long time, yet still have most of my shit unpacked or fail to furnish it, decorate, or personalize it. I’m trying to work on that now but something always leads me into flux or a new adventure. maybe it’s the moon in sagg is oh so prominent.

Have a mindset that if one item comes in, one goes out. After endless ongoing tossing still think i have too much. Like the habitat to speak for itself sans furniture, meaning the floors, walls, layout to have character that stands alone. The ceiling in the pink room above is similar to mine only mine is MORE ornate & prettier, built in (circa1912) fireplace with mirrors, tiles & mantle, so did oriental antique pieces to give a feel like the old original Raffles Hotel in Singapore, colonial, but it always feels ‘heavy’ to me, but then all bricks have that… Read more »

Really need a house with more bookshelves. I used to love flea markets and yard sales, now refuse to go because I don’t want other people’s junk, I have too much of my own, even if it is “good junk”.

I don’t understand it. You cannot possibly need a rusty wrench from yore for what kind of nut/screw/thing? No. Crap psychically disturbs me. Like I cannot work – much less watch a reality show where the person’s house is messy.

Aries Sun, Aqua Rising and Virgo Moon. I’m a minimalist, but less of an ascetic and more of a seeker of perfection (i.e. the perfect flatware set, the perfect jacket, etc.). Simplicity and quintessence are the name of the game, and I’m okay with having five pairs of black boots as long as they’re each perfect (and perfectly put away!) for a given scenario. Clutter is my enemy; you can have a bunch of stuff as long as it’s used regularly and then neatly returned to its right place afterward.

Aqua sun, I’m a hoarder, but I like clean minimal rooms, like the lounge room and the bath room and bed room. I love cupboards to hide all the mess and they are usually crammed full. I guess it is my work room that is in organised chaos, I’m an artist. Some artists work in messy environs and others in pristine environs, I’m in the former camp.
And for your stats, my Cancerian best friend is totally a minimalist, and my Pisces boyfriend is a hoarder and total mess maker.

Cancer Sun, Aquarius Moon. Reformed hoarder. I used to be shocking, keeping all kinds of crap “just in case” or for sentimental reasons. I would pick up stuff off the kerb on Council Clean up days and would haunt op shops and garage sales. Then, about 5 years ago I ended a relationship and decided to get rid of everything that reminded me of that person – did I mention that this was also the moment I recovered from being a love zombie? It was a revelation. Clearing away the physical stuff helped me clear the emotional stuff and the… Read more »

Virgo Sun, Aquarius Moon, Pisces Rising. I am a minimalist. I am always getting rid of things every 3-6 months. If I haven’t used something within the last year it’s time to go. When I buy something new, I get rid of something old. I do feel like if there’s too much clutter I can’t breathe and feel weighed down. I’ve had to teach my husband how to be minimalist, he’s a Leo Sun, Aries Moon, and Virgo Rising, he used to be a hoarder but he changed his ways 🙂

Scorp sun, Pisces asc., Libra moon. I am at neither extreme. Clutter drives me bats: shit needs to have a home & be free of dead skin cells//hair/old fibers, aka dust. My place is like a library slash greenhouse, & everything has its place. I’ve noticed that all of us– incl the pets– are more at peace & better functioning when tidyness & order are maintained, when space is balanced & aesthetically pleasing. The air must be fresh, too: cross-ventilation is a must. I employ the add one thing-remove one thing principle. I do have one extreme tendency: hoarding nonperishable… Read more »

Former hoarder turned minimalist. Messy with clean sweep frenzies. Virgo sun w/ Pisces Moon & Neptune conj. Asc. I work a lot at home and can’t do it if the space is too messy, also my virgo dad seemed to feel that your space reflected the condition of your life and I took that into consideration as an adult. Its true, when you get your space in order you feel pretty good too and its easier to work and think… I didn’t feel that way in the past and felt it was just the opposite, but I also wasn’t doing… Read more »

Double Taurus pisces rising reporting in. Late 30s, reformed hoarder (that’s probably a harsh term, but one could say “collector”) post-Saturn return– prior to that, through my 20s I stockpiled musical instruments as if the Apocalypse was going to be one giant Battle of the Bands. Was encouraged to “travel lighter” by two girlfriends, one Aqua/Sagg and one Double Libra (crab moon). You should see my apartment now, it looks like an art gallery. Sparse and stark, and I have come around to seeing fully decluttered space as peaceful space. Never could write a song in a messy room anyway.

I guess I have more of the Saggo influence then (my moon/uranus, sun in cancer), because I hate clutter and hoarding. My husband is the hoarder — he’s a Virgo. We just moved and I was begging him to throw the “junk” away, and he just wouldn’t… but in all fairness some of the crap he kept came in handy in the past. Maybe there are some hoarders that do it for future survival and it’s instinct?
