Everyone has a breaking point. Whether someone says something to you or does something to get on your last nerve, we all have that one thing that just makes us snap without a second thought.
No, I’m not talking about when someone keeps riding your bumper in traffic or when you let your sister borrow your clothes and she never returns them (although those things are pretty annoying).
What I really mean is that every one of us has a situation that would turn us into an entirely different person if we were in it.
It doesn’t matter if your best friend lies to you or if someone you thought loved you leads you on, there is always that one thing that can turn us into the Hulk if someone tries us.
Depending On What Your Zodiac Sign Is, You Might Already Know What Your Breaking Point Is. If You Don’t, The Stars Are A Pretty Good Indication Of What You’re Like, Both The Good And Bad Parts.
Think of astrology like your own personal guide into yourself, as well as a way to understand your friends and family better.
That way, instead of blowing up at someone (or them blowing up at you), you can simply avoid the entire situation and inevitable argument… and who doesn’t love avoiding things, amirite?
Read below to find out what you should NEVER say to the signs (unless you want to start a fight, of course) and why it’ll be your funeral if you do.
You might be a laid back sign in general, but when someone lays this on you, they had better have a good reason for it.
Just remember that if you mess with any of the signs on purpose, you probably deserve what they’ve got in store for you. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
1. ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
Aries puts a lot of time and effort into being the person she’s always wanted to be. To everyone else, it seems like everything comes easy to an Aries, but in reality, she has had to work for it all; her confidence, her determination, everything that makes an Aries, Aries.
Aries has a pretty strong head on her shoulders, but sometimes she loses her cool.
The worst thing you can do to her is mess with her emotions. Making her feel even the least bit bad for getting upset or acting anything less than the bad ass bitch she is will only lead to trouble.
2. TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
Taurus may be able to handle a lot of things, but one thing she won’t stand for is when people cross her.
Whether that means picking a fight, showing her you can’t be trusted, or putting her down, you better hope she’s able to control her anger. Taurus is NOT one to mess with.
3. GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
Gemini wants nothing but to enjoy life, which is why she always surrounds herself with friends, fun, and love. What sets her apart from others is her impeccable ability to know when it’s time to be an adult and when she can play.
The minute you start to belittle a Gemini and the choices she makes, you better start working on an apology.
Not only can Gemini handle confrontation like a boss, but her communication skills will put you in your spot fast. Gemini doesn’t live life for anyone but herself, so she will definitely not be taking sh*t from you.
4. CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
Cancer loves to love, but unlike a hopeless romantic, she knows who deserves her time and affection, and who isn’t worth anything at all. She believes that love should come with respect, which means that those who want to stay in her life should prove it.
You can’t expect to have an open, honest relationship with a Cancer if you can’t be trustworthy. If you are just u sing her because she’s fun or she’s good in bed, you are intentionally hurting her.
You should never make a Cancer regret loving you because I promise that she will make your life a living hell for leading her on and stepping all over her heart.
5. LEO (July 23 – August 22)
Leo knows she deserves the best when it comes to love, which is why she has such high standards. Many people think she’s conceited or spoiled, but she would rather not waste her time with people who don’t want her for her.
Unfortunately, her radar can be a little off at times and people can slide into her life under false pretenses. Whether or not she catches it quickly, a Leo will ALWAYS know if you are playing her.
If you use a Leo – for sex, company, love, or anything in between – she will show you that she can push back twice as hard. When Leo puts her heart out on the line, she expects love in return. Always.
6. VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
Virgo takes a lot of pride in the kind of person she is – methodical, intelligent, and hardworking – and honestly, she doesn’t care what anyone else thinks. This attitude can sometimes annoy people because not everyone understands how she can be on her own level.
Virgo doesn’t believe in always sharing her goals and ideas because she knows that some of the best things in life are kept a secret (giving her complete control). However, this can sometimes lead to people talking down to Virgo like she doesn’t know what she’s doing, just because she isn’t always vocal about her next moves… BIG mistake.
Every time someone treats her like she’s dumb, she’ll come back with her claws out.
7. LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
Libra might spend a lot of time making sure her friends and family are happy, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t want the same kindness shared with her. In fact, Libra has huge dreams for herself, ones that she loves sharing with the people in her life.
Libra can be a very introspective individual, one who would rather keep her hopes and dreams inside until she’s ready to share. That said, she puts a lot of time and effort into thinking about the future, so when she’s finally ready to share, she wants people to make her feel welcome and loved.
Tearing down a Libra’s dreams is one of the worst things you can do because it shows her that after all the time she spent loving you, you’re still able to make her feel like she doesn’t matter.
8. SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
Scorpio believes in living life to the fullest, which means she doesn’t have time to slow down for anyone. She manages to inject life and passion into everything she does, from dressing to the nines to being the life of the party.
It’s not totally untrue that Scorpio can sometimes be a little too much to handle for some people, but if you have an issue with the way she lives her life, it’s best to just keep your comments to yourself.
Picking a fight with a Scorpio is only going to leave you with a bruised ego and some serious emotional hurt later on. Scorpio doesn’t need people telling her what to do or how to do it simply because it’s her life, not yours. Keep doing you, girl.
9. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
Sagittarius loves having a good time. Being with friends, having someone to love, just being herself; all of these things give the sign life. If anyone is more prepared for the future than a Sagittarius is, I haven’t found her yet.
She often gets into the mindset that if everything is going awesome for her now, then it must be even better in the future.
This enthusiasm is what makes Sagittarius so lovable and great to be around, but unfortunately, there are still people around her who would rather be negative all the time. Luckily for her, nothing really brings her down when she’s feeling herself, so when someone tries to hold her back from succeeding and having a good time, Sagittarius is able to put them in their place where they belong – behind her.
10. CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorn wants nothing more in life than to be happy, be surrounded by people who care about her, and be successful. She has worked hard to get where she is today and is constantly looking towards her bright future, which sometimes means she’s quick to move on from anything she deems problematic or negative.
So, when people try to bring up Capricorn’s past, including all of her bad decisions and mistakes, she won’t hesitate to shut them down.
Capricorn doesn’t understand why you would continue to bring up things from the past unless you are intentionally trying to upset her and if that is the case, then you’re no longer welcome.
11. AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
Aquarius loves being different and in fact, thrives best when she knows she’s the only one marching to the beat of her own drum. She doesn’t have to try very hard to be different, but she does make an effort to make sure the things she does in life are recognized for the right reasons.
Being such a big believer in wanting to make a difference, Aquarius is always hoping people will want to join her, not one-up her.
You should never overshadow an Aquarius; not because she can’t handle a little competition (you’d be surprised), but because she puts the most effort into things that matter most to her in life, so having someone tell her it still isn’t good enough is incredibly harsh.
12. PISCES (February 19 – March 20)
One of the best things about Pisces is that she is able to handle a lot of things at once. Even when she’s in a sticky situation, she knows how to keep a level head and get sh*t done.
In addition to this awesome attitude of hers, she also doesn’t let people she doesn’t care about bring her down. That said, she can sometimes be seen as too nice or someone who can’t stand up for herself, which makes some people think they can take advantage of her.
However, what they clearly DON’T know is that when you make a Pisces furious, you’re in big trouble. Pisces is well aware of how she acts and just because it doesn’t seem like she has a backbone doesn’t actually make it true.
Anger a Pisces and you had better hope you come out of it one piece.
