We all have that thing that makes us angry, whether it be an unreliable coworker or being stuck in traffic. We all tend to handle our anger in different ways, too, and what your zodiac sign reveals about your temper may give you a little more insight as to why you react in stressful situations they way you do.
How zodiac signs react when they’re mad is often reflective of the less-than-savory traits and secrets associated with each sign.
For example, Fire signs like Aries or Leos can be hot-headed and have a propensity to have dramatic scorching meltdowns. Air signs may act a little more aloof and pretend whatever is ticking them off simply doesn’t exist. Anger, like fear, is a complex but necessary emotion, and learning how astrological signs get angry can help you understand how to interpret and handle it.
Aries Will Blow Up In Your Face And Then Feel Awful About It
Aries (March 21 – April 19) are set-off relatively easily. They are a Fire sign and tend to be hot-tempered. They will lash out when upset and may even have a bit of a temper tantrum. But like Fourth of July fireworks, they burn bright and hot then fizzle out quickly. As the babies of the zodiac, Aries are not the most mature of zodiac signs and will typically feel awful after blowing up at you. The best thing to do in a fight with an Aries is to remain calm.
A Taurus Never Forgets And Will Make Sure To Remind You Of Everything You’ve Ever Done Wrong
It takes a lot to get the bull to see red, but once he does, you better run for your life. There are usually some warning signs prior to a Taurus (April 20 – May 20) meltdown. They get quiet and distant as they plot how to destroy you. You can call this the calm before the storm. When they finally blow up, their sharp memory will have them recalling things you said to them from three years ago. After their anger cools down, don’t expect that they’ll be forgetting about this fight anytime soon. Bulls like to keep grudges.
Geminis Like To Throw Verbal Daggers In Their Arguments
The Gemini (May 21 – June 20) is the most vocal of all the signs, so when you get them angry, you can expect a whole lot of shouting. That’s if you get their more fiery side; if you get their other side, they will be cool and conniving sadists who won’t hesitate to hit you where it hurts. They’ll bring up your troubled relationship with your mother and remind you of all your greatest failures and weaknesses.
A Cancer Will Sulk Until You Pay Attention To Them
Cancers (June 21 – July 22) are extremely sensitive and have no qualms turning into an adult baby when they’re angry. If they don’t get a group invite to grab drinks with the crew or you forget to congratulate them on some minor accomplishment, they’ll take it personally. Cancers hate to feel like they’re being left out of something or like they’re undervalued. While they might not lash out with a swarm of obscenities, they’ll probably drown themselves in their own tears. To cheer them up, you’ll have to reach out to them to reassure them they are still loved.
A Leo Will Roar Their Head Off And Maybe Throw Something At Yours
A Leo (July 23 – August 22) is a Fire sign, and they tend to run hot. They are extremely proud and unlikely to admit blame for something in a fight, even though they might know they are in the wrong. If a Leo is angry with you, they will likely shout over you and may even throw some stuff around the room. However, this anger is often short-lived and they are likely to get over it quickly.
A Virgo Will Completely Cut You Out Of Their Lives
It’s hard to trigger a Virgo (August 23 – September 22), as they are one of the most patient signs. You won’t see them blow up like a Leo or Aries. Instead, they internalize their anger, sometimes building up dislike for someone over months and judging their various wrongdoings. If you pissed them off enough, they could completely ghost you, erasing you from their lives like you never existed at all.
Don’t Expect A Libra To Confront You If They’re Angry
Naturally balanced, Libras (September 23 – October 22) are even-tempered and it’s unlikely you’ll even know if you offended them. They are the “peacekeepers” of the signs and generally try to avoid confrontation when they can. But, if you do find yourself in an argument with a Libra, don’t think it will be an easy one to win. Libras make great lawyers, and they can always justify their position.
Scorpios Hate Deeply And Will Plot Your Imminent Demise
Beware of the Scorpio’s sting. Scorpios (October 23 – November 21) feel very deeply and express a lot of dominance in their relationships. If you piss off a Scorpio, good luck getting off their sh*t list. They don’t tend to anger easy, but when they do get upset, they often choose cutting silence as their weapon of choice. Scorpios are known for their self-control, so they will not blow up in your face if they are angry. Instead, they will become plotting and spiteful. If they’re angry, walking over a hot bed of coals is more comfortable than being in their presence.
Sagittarius Will Pretend They Don’t Know You
If a Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21) takes the time to fight with you, they won’t back down until you see things their way. They will also be extremely blunt in getting their point across, which could potentially leave you in tears. There is also a good chance that the Sagittarius will cut you out of their lives altogether if they are wounded deeply enough.
Capricorns Will Snap If Pushed Too Far
Capricorns (December 22 – January 19) are known for being hard-working and generally put-together individuals. It’s difficult to trigger an emotional outburst from a Capricorn, as they are people who keep their composure. However, if they are pushed too far, you can expect them to unleash a shocking verbal attack that may involve some objects sent flying across a room. They’re also likely to tell you that they’re not mad, but “disappointed.” We all know that someone telling you they’re disappointed in you is way worse than someone just being upset with you.
An Aquarius Will Ignore You For As Long As Possible
As an Air sign, an Aquarius (January 20 – February 18) is often cool-headed and difficult to trigger. If you’ve managed to upset them, don’t be surprised if they cease all communication with you until they’re able to cool off and reassess the situation. If an Aquarius is upset with you, it’s better to just give them some space to calm down. Once you feel like they’ve gotten over it, you can attempt to try to get back into their good graces.
A Pisces Will Take Everything Personally
Pisces (February 19 – March 20) are extremely vulnerable and emotional creatures. They aren’t ones to take constructive criticism. Even though they are deeply emotional, they are unlikely to lash out in a dramatic way. Instead, Pisces will internalize anger or a criticism and turn it into a spiral of self-doubt. They will sulk and play the “poor little Pisces” card for all it’s worth. They may even attempt to manipulate you into feeling guilty for hurting them.
