These three zodiac signs are the best roommates

It’s hard to find good roommates these days. Everyone seems to have a horror story, whether it's the roommate who forgot to pay their rent or the person who left dishes rotting in the sink for days on end. But every now and then you get lucky and meet a truly amazing roommate—and they tend to be one of the three zodiac signs listed below.

Michelle Bell, founder of astrology app Cosmic Fusion, says the best roommates are those who are considerate, especially when it comes to personal space and division of household chores, and those who have just the right amount of extroversion.

While everyone has a different idea of ​​what makes a good roommate, generally it's clean but not too clean, and quiet but not too quiet. This way everyone can get along harmoniously and not feel embarrassed. Another nice perk is if they are happy to do their own thing but occasionally gather in the common area for movie nights.

Astrologically speaking, the signs of the best roommates also tend to have a sense of diplomacy and fairness, which is necessary to prevent annoying arguments and skirmishes at home. Read on below to learn what astrologers say are the three easiest signs to live with.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Living with a Taurus is an absolute breeze. "They're dependable and like a comfortable living environment," Bell said. That means they never leave dishes in the sink or forget to pay their share of the water bill. Bulls wouldn't dream of leaving wet clothes in the washing machine because they like to keep good things in good condition.

As a sign ruled by Venus, the planet of luxury, you might even get some stunning interior designs when you live with a Taurus. “They may invest in making their home a comfortable and beautiful space,” Bell said. They'll go to the thrift store and come home with the coolest lamps and antique paintings, and before you know it, you'll feel like you're living in a real house and not just a crash pad.

Taurus will also want to avoid all the typical roommate arguments so you won't find them getting angry if someone turns down the heat or leaves the lights on. "Their laid-back nature makes for a stable and drama-free experience," Bell said. All you have to do is respect their daily routine—and help them with a few chores—and soon you'll feel like you're living with a best friend.

Libra (September 23-October 22)

There is no better roommate than a Libra. This air sign, ruled by Venus, will go out of their way to create a welcoming environment for all, which often means they automatically become the honorary "parent" of the house. They think ahead and provide you with thoughtful touches like starting your coffee pot in the morning or texting you to ask if you need anything from Trader Joe's.

According to Bell, Libra, represented by the Scales, is known for diplomacy and a desire for harmony. Domestic disputes will not last more than five minutes when Libra is present. They would hold emergency meetings on the couch and make sure everyone aired their grievances until the issue was resolved.

They also accept constructive criticism without feeling upset or holding a grudge, which means if you have a question about their habits, you can always tell them without fear of backlash. As an added bonus, Libras are also known for being super friendly and outgoing, so you can rely on them to plan the best Friday night get-together.

Aquarius (January 20 to February 18)

If you're looking for a calm roommate who spends most of his time in his room, look for an Aquarius roommate. According to Bell, this air sign is very laid-back and easy-going, so they'll respect quiet time and everyone's need for personal space.

You'll never find an Aquarius hovering above you in the kitchen while you try to cook. If you look busy, they'll take the hint and go about their business. That said, they'll pop up if you're looking for companionship on, say, a Saturday when you want to randomly watch Twilight for the third time.

Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, the planet of innovation, so Aquarius tend to be open to unconventional living arrangements. They won't object if you bring home a kitten you found outside, and they won't be offended if your partner needs to stay for a week.

They tend to have a "the more the merrier" mentality when the house is filled with roommates and guests, and they like it to start feeling like one big happy family. As Bell says, their humanitarian nature ensures they are always extra considerate in making everyone feel at home.
