Signs' Negative Sides

Each sign has a negative side, and you probably already know yours, but what is going on inside each sign’s head when they display such negative behavior? Every negative trait has a reason, and if you know these reasons, it’s easier for you to communicate with people around you.

March 21 - April 19

Aries native, everybody knows that you can be stubborn as hell, demanding, and sometimes aggressive. You get caught up in your fast-paced lifestyle and can easily get frustrated with people who cannot keep up. You want the whole world and you want it right now. Your temper can be notoriously short.

Signs' Negative Sides: Aries

Aries natives are learning how to use their wild energy, but they often get it wrong. Sometimes you are glad when people stand up to you because you don’t intend to hurt their feelings or destroy them. You need to be encouraged, or you’ll get depressed, passive, and emotionally vulnerable.


April 20 - May 20

Taurus native, sometimes you can be overly materialistic. You can often stress over materialistic things that don’t really matter at all. You’re a very hardworking sign, but to some people, you may seem a bit slow and even lazy. At heart, you’re silent and prefer to commune with Nature.

Being in touch with the energy of the world, you can heal other people with it. You may seem slow or lazy, but the reason for it is that you need time to feel secure before you can speak or act. You often think twice before making a decision. You also appreciate the value of leisure.


May 21 - June 20

Gemini native, you are very intelligent and sometimes you can even be a bit too cunning for your own good. You know exactly how to manipulate people around you and turn situations to your advantage. Sometimes you are scarily good at the art of deception and can turn some people insane with your mind games.

Signs' Negative Sides: Gemini

Gemini people have some difficulties linking two halves of the brain. When you’re in the left-brain mode, you talk and think well. When you’re in the right-brain mode, you become silent, sometimes too silent, and don’t know how to communicate. You need to accept your creative side, Gemini native.


June 21 - July 22

Cancer native, you can be too emotional or even moody sometimes. When you get really upset, you can get the meaning of emotional outbursts to a whole new level. You can be almost unbearable to be around. Sometimes it’s wise just to leave you alone and let you pull yourself together.

By nature, you feel emotions like waves on the sea: up and down. You often need time to come back up. It is very important for you to learn to mother your own neediness because you’re a part-parent, part-child. Otherwise, you’ll find another person to play one of these parts, and you’ll feel possessive of that person.


July 23 - August 22

Leo, as the king of the Zodiac, sometimes you can be bossy or vain. Getting overly sensitive to any form of criticism is very possible for your sign, too. You often have grand plans in your head about the things you dream of accomplishing, and you can be really bossy while trying to make those dreams come true.

Sometimes you can also struggle with accepting criticism even when it’s meant to be constructive. You often present yourself bigger than you feel inside, and it’s very easy to crush you with coolness. You need lots of love and smiles because it takes much energy to radiate that much.


August 23 - September 22

Virgo native, you can be overly critical (of yourself and other people) and hold people around you to unreasonable standards. You’re a perfectionist and can come across as pedantic. You can’t stand seeing things done in the wrong way, and you can get quite harsh while criticizing something you don’t like.

Signs' Negative Sides: Virgo

You also tend to criticize yourself more than anyone else. You feel that anything short of perfection is just not good enough. You give yourself a very hard time quite often; you tend to point out only the faults forgetting to voice your more positive thoughts. It’s very important for you to be recognized as helpful.


September 23 - October 23

Libra native, you can be a bit manipulative and sometimes a little too good at lying. You are so clever and charming that you can easily pull the wool over someone’s eyes if you want to do so. You can get so persuasive that you can convince anybody to sell their soul away to you. You mostly use these superpowers for good, though.

You’re also sometimes afraid to upset the balance. You can be really indecisive. When you know all the facts about a situation, you will find the best course of action but not before. The only decision you can make quickly are those that you know don’t really matter. Making an important decision always takes some time.


October 24 - November 22

Scorpio, you can be the nicest person. But sometimes you probably get obsessive, controlling, and even aggressive. If you have a problem with someone, you get angry really fast. Those who cross you will learn how sharp your claws can be. You’re also not very good at letting go of your past and old grudges.

You’re also more emotionally vulnerable than any other Zodiac sign. You use many methods to protect yourself: you get silent, you direct attention to other people and sometimes you get prickly to keep others at bay. Explore your emotions to become able to support others through the worst disasters.


November 23 - December 21

Sagittarius native, you can seem insensitive and sometimes even rude. You’re also probably a bit of a hothead. You like to say whatever is on your mind no matter how blunt or direct it is. Some people can find your honesty refreshing; for others, it’s just too much: they can be offended by what they perceive to be insensitivity.

Signs' Negative Sides: Sagittarius

Your natural sense of humor is great, but it often produces jokes that can hurt others unintentionally. You’re also not the most patient sign of the Zodiac. Your enthusiasm is intended to inspire people around you, not to lead them. You’re also very creative, and your imagination takes you beyond the rational – you get carried away quite often.


December 22 - January 19

Capricorn, you are probably the most hardworking sign of the Zodiac. You carry your responsibilities like a cloak. The pleasing results of your hard work matter more to you than emotional expression, so you tend to omit to tell people around you that you are feeling tired, stressed, and overburdened.

You also probably think of yourself as a skeptical realist, but to some people, your attitude comes across as pessimistic. Sometimes you wind up resentful and bitter. But it’s not that you try to alienate people on purpose, Capricorn native, – you just have very little patience for stupidity.


January 20 - February 19

Sometimes you can be emotionally detached, overly secretive, and hard to get close to. You aren’t exactly an open book that spills its secrets when people around you want it, Aquarius native. If you don’t want to talk about something, it almost feels like drawing blood from a stone trying to get any information out of you.

You seem cool, but you often feel you are levitating over a sea of emotions that can engulf you if you look down. Your detachment gives you a wonderful vision, but it makes you look overly secretive and distant. Your strong attachment to principles can lead you to be hurt by others with different priorities.


February 20 - March 20

Pisces native, you can be quite indecisive and sometimes self-pitying. The dreamy state you often find yourself in can often result in total indecisiveness. It’s VERY difficult for you to make a crucial decision. Some days you struggle to get your thoughts in order so much that you constantly find yourself losing things.

Signs' Negative Sides: Pisces

Some people may think that you have no boundaries, and this is quite difficult in the material world. It’s very important for you to learn to create personal boundaries in order to know what you are actually feeling. Being centered in your own heart helps you identify with the spirit itself.
