Yikes. Watch out.
What do you do when you're in a bad mood? Do you lock yourself away and refuse to talk to anyone, or do you lash out at those closest to you? We all have our way of handling those times when we're in a really crappy mood.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
When Aries is in a foul mood, they're extra self-centered, dangerously impulsive, demanding, and they take reckless chances. Don't ask an Aries who is in a bad mood to handle any kind of financial or personal crisis you might have — it could end in disaster. Wait until they're back to their fun, upbeat selves.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
The personality of a Taurus doesn't change that much when they're in a bad mood, it just intensifies. They get more stubborn, indulgent and lazy. Just let them ride out their bad mood with whatever it is that they are indulging in. It's not as if you could stop them anyway.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
A bad mood affects a Gemini by making them restless, distracted, and judgmental, so if it's common sense or good advice you're after, wait until the bad mood goes away. Or instead of some good counsel, your Gemini friend is going to lay a whole bunch of critical on you.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
When a Cancer is in a bad mood, they do exactly what you'd expect: retreat and isolate. They're sensitive people on a good day, but when their defenses are down, they get hypersensitive. One misinterpreted word from you and it's a total emotion collapse for them.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
Any kind of attention is still attention, so if a Leo is in a bad mood, they'll just milk it for what it's worth and go into full on drama queen mode. They become more arrogant than usual and will play the game of "Go away, come closer" until you want to scream. Don't scream, for that will steal focus from Leo and put them in an even worse mood.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Virgos can get a little preachy when they're not feeling happy and will tell you what's wrong with you. The funny thing is, no matter how flawed they find you, the only pity they'll have is for themselves.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
Beware the puppet-master that Libra becomes when they're in a bad mood. It's almost as if being manipulative makes them feel as if they're more in control of their lives.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
Scorpio is like Taurus — when they're in a bad mood, it intensifies some of their stronger personality traits. And with Scorpio, that means they get completely obsessive, possessive, secretive and jealous. Get out of the way of a Scorpio when they're in that state; it's truly frightening.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
The good news is that when a Sagittarius is in a bad mood, they're not mean. However, they're argumentative, reckless and extremely flaky. In other words, don't start planning that trip you're going on together. Wait it out until they're feeling better.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
It can be the hottest summer day, but when a Capricorn is in a bad mood you'll think it's the middle of winter because of how cold they act. They also tend to focus on the negative, and become very pessimistic and unforgiving.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
Normally, Aquarians love to be around other people and will do what they can to help them. Not so when they're in a terrible mood. When things are going poorly for Aquarius, they'll get very detached, guarded, irrational and self-destructive. Do whatever it takes to turn their mood around, for both your sakes.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
When Pisces is in a bad mood, they take all their normal creative and inspired energy and turn it inward. A bad-mood Pisces is clingy, needy, whiny, self-destructive and full of self-pity. It can be extremely alarming to witness a Pisces in a bad mood. Yes, it will ruin your mood.
