zodiac signs worst trait

And now for the bad news.

If you’re like me, you love to read about yourself and get new insights into your personality. And nothing is better at that than pieces about the zodiac signs. You get to feel superior when they’re completely off-base and kind of weirdly excited when they’re right on the money.

Astrology isn’t an exact science and as much as you may believe in what the stars say, you probably know that what makes you, you are a variety of things like DNA, environment, and experiences.


Also, along with all the good and wonderful things about you, there are sure to be some not so attractive, likable, or even positive qualities that you have.

You may be someone who is very much into self-improvement and is always taking classes, attending therapy sessions, or working on your issues independently of anyone else; you might be the kind of person who feels perfectly fine with your so-called negative traits. You might not even see them as negative. Sure, you’re stubborn but that also means you eventually get your way.

We’re all a mix of all kinds of characteristics and traits and that’s what ultimately makes us interesting, unique, and intriguing. Not everyone is going to like you and that’s okay because you’re not going to like everyone in return. Sometimes our negative personality traits don’t jibe well with other people.

It can be helpful to be aware of one’s weaknesses and negative traits, even if you don’t have any desire to improve upon them because they can tell you where you are most vulnerable. If you tend to get jealous, someone could use it to manipulate you. How many great plays or novels have that theme alone?


The more information we have about ourselves, the better. So when the stars off some insight, it’s not a bad idea to read about it, even if it’s just to say how incredibly wrong they are about you.

Here's the zodiac signs' worst trait.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

You're so busy conquering things, facing every challenge, and basically doing what you want to do that you may not be aware of your negative personality traits. You're arrogant, stubborn, foolhardy, disorganized and demanding. However, if you just take a moment to breathe and check yourself, you can curb some of your more aggressive characteristics.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

No one close to you would ever dare to tell you how you suck, but the stars have no problem doing it. You don't care who you walk over to get ahead and it's not just that you can tunnel-vision; you're also extremely stubborn, self-indulgent, materialistic, and, not surprisingly, possessive. If you've got something or someone, you hang on with an iron fist. Try thinking of others and learning about the concept of compromise.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

You're super-likable a lot of the time but there's another darker, less friendly side of your personality. You don't mean to hurt anybody but the fact that you're inconsistent, superficial, flaky, and tend to think you know everything can be annoying.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

You're always on guard because you're convinced that everyone is out to get you, but this isn't the case at all. They're trying their best at not upsetting you but that's practically impossible when your negative personality traits are that you're moody, needy, and paranoid. The truth is that you're loved and everyone is more likely to support you than attack you.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Where's Leo? Front and center as usual. You like yourself a lot which is handy because most people adore you — so much so, it tends to go to your head. There's a difference between being self-confident and being a jerk. Your negative qualities support that as you're obstinate, self-centered, dominating, arrogant and impatient. Cool your heels for a moment and you'll see that you're wasting a lot of energy trying to get things that you already have.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

It's one thing to be self-critical but you don't limit your harsh perfectionism to yourself; you tend to put your loved ones under that same scrutiny. Besides being hypercritical, you're hard to please, finicky, fussy, and you tend to get so lost in the details that you can't see clearly. You need to make peace with imperfection with yourself and others, and when you do, you'll feel much better.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

You need to know that your wealth of charm and graciousness don't cover up the fact that you're indecisive as hell, somewhat unreliable, lazy, and completely captivated by someone's good looks. Sometimes you just need to have faith that you're doing the right thing and decide you are annoying all the people who are waiting for you to go ahead and do it.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Your good qualities are amazing: you're strong, passionate, focused, and courageous but your bad traits veer to the dark side. You can get extremely jealous, possessive, secretive, and manipulative. You enjoy messing with people's heads, especially if it gets you what you want. Ease up on the controlling and learn how to forgive.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Most people think of you as free-spirited, chill, and someone with a need for travel — and that's true. What people may not know is that you can be mind-numbingly self-serving, careless, tactless and highly inconsistent. You know you have to at least look as if you care about someone besides yourself, but you don't unless their well-being dovetails into yours. Next time you're on a long flight, maybe take a hard look at yourself and figure out how you could become more compassionate.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

You're the salt of the earth and would give the shirt off your back in case of disaster, which you're certain is coming. You try to prepare for every disaster because you're constantly worried, sure that the world is dangerous and that disaster is around the corner. You're most comfortable at work, so every time you get on a "the sky is falling" jag, focus on your work or how you want to advance in your career.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Most of the time, you're easy-going, accepting, and fun to be around, but if someone should do something to you that you take as a major offense, your first line of defense is the silent treatment. You don't want to deal even if it will make things better, so you don't talk. You're also fantastic at distancing yourself and remaining aloof even when the other person wants to talk things out. If you want your relationships to get stronger, you're going to have to be better about hashing things out.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

You're kind of a big baby. If you don't like what's going on around you, you just escape to your fantasy world. You're not one to overthink things if someone has an idea; you're ready to jump on board if it's not too taxing. Remember: you live in the material world, too; you're not some character in an alternative universe.
