How Intimidating You Are, According To Your Zodiac Sign

most intimidating zodiac sign
Zodiac, Self

You can be scary.

When you walk into a room, you feel it immediately — you're not like everybody else. There’s something about you that intimidates other people. Maybe it’s your take no sh*t attitude or perhaps it’s the way you stand tall and proud.

People tend to avert their eyes, or if they do look at you, they’ll try to avoid direct eye contact. Do you make them feel ashamed in some way because they’re not as open and honest as you are?

It’s your honesty that might be intimidating to certain people. You don’t hold back with your feelings whether they’re good or bad; you express them and some people just aren’t up to hearing your brutal assessment of their personalities.

You don’t understand people who play dumb or don’t try to improve themselves as if they never need to learn anything ever again. You won’t suffer fools for any reason, except to laugh at them. You have what people describe as having a strong personality. You are who you are and you don’t try to hide the traits that other people might think of as negative or unattractive.

Many people admire you and how you live your life, even to the point where they want to copy the way you do things. Your self-sufficient way of thinking can be off-putting to some people but you don’t care what anybody thinks about you.

You live your life for you, not for other people. You’re not content to say what you’d like to do or what you’d like to change — you get out there and do it, no matter how challenging it might be. You want to be able to look back at your life and know that you did everything you could to be a better person and make a better world.

But not everybody who is intimidating is intimidating in the same way. Here are the most intimidating zodiac signs, according to astrology.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

People never know what you're going to do or say and it can be alarming. You don't hold back when it comes to speaking your mind and you never wait for the perfect moment to do it. You don't intend to be mean but sometimes you can be brutal with your insensitivity. You think because you can handle anything that's dished out, that everybody is like that as well, but they're not. If someone doesn't feel up for your honesty, they may try to avoid you.

Your "stick to it" attitude is intimidating. You never give up, no matter how unpleasant or hard it is. You're a model of persistence and determination and it makes those who give up too easily or are just lazy ashamed of themselves. You don't want to make anyone feel bad but you're not going to stop whatever it is that you're doing so that someone would feel better about themselves.

Can you imagine how someone who is inarticulate might feel intimidated by you? Because you're gifted with words, you're able to show how intelligent, witty, and special you are in your communication. Then there's the fact that you're extremely comfortable in social situations. You know how to work a party like no one else and if someone doesn't have that same level of sociability, it can be very intimidating.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

You're very intuitive about people and you sometimes seem to know more about what's going on than they do, and it can make them feel intimidated. You tend to have some psychic ability, especially regarding other people, and it unnerves them when you say something completely unexpected about them that's also true. They can only hope you're using your powers for good, not to scare the crap out of them.

Everything seems so easy for you: you're popular, you look good, you don't have a shy bone in your body, and you do everything right. Who wouldn't be intimidated by you? On the surface, it doesn't even seem as if you have any problems. You let the perfect picture you present from preventing anyone from getting to know the real you and that's their loss. They need to see that it's not always easy for you and that they're missing out by not having the confidence in themselves to get to know you.

You seem to know EVERYTHING and it's intimidating as hell. No one wants to seem like they're an idiot when they're around you, so they let the image they have of you and your powerful smarts intimidate them. Little do they know, lots of people intimidate you and you have your issues like everybody else. But when you need an ego boost, remember there are people who are truly intimidated by your mind.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

You can be intimidating in the way that you fight for the things you believe in. You're perfectly charming and gracious most of the time, but when you think someone's been wronged in some way, you get fierce and no one had better get in your way. You can also be intimidating when all the negative emotions you've been burying finally come out of you. No one wants to be around you when you explode; it's not pretty and it's very unsettling.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

If someone doesn't know you very well, it's very likely that they'd be intimidated by your intensity, your need for honesty, and your passion. When you get jealous or think that something has been stolen from you (your love, your dignity), you react strongly. You're not one to just step aside and take it; you focus on payback and nothing can stop you.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

You live by your own rules and don't feel compelled to live life in the same way that other people do. You want to explore, have adventures, and expand your mind and it kind of freaks people out to such an extent that they don't know how to handle you. You try to make people feel comfortable around you but sometimes it's that ease you have about yourself that's intimidating.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

You work extremely hard and it pays off. It's your continuing success that so many people find intimidating. They want to be like you but they doubt they have all the patience, skill, and abilities that you do. You're like the CEO of life and that intimidates and inspires people. If there were more people who were as resourceful, dedicated, and dependable like you, the world would be a better place. You know the value of your self-worth but you aren't full of yourself or horribly self-centered.

You don't care what anyone thinks about you and you do your own thing. What could be more intimidating than that? You enjoy your own company and while you like and enjoy other people, you're okay with being alone sometimes. You're not dependent on other people for your happiness. You're very inventive and do the unexpected which tends to completely blow people's minds. You're able to stay in control when other people lose it and that's very intimidating.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

You're so kind that sometimes it's intimidating because it holds a mirror up to those who are less than kind. You're also incredibly creative and artistic and can make art out of the most unexpected things. You awe, you inspire, and you intimidate. It's not that you try to make people feel boring around you, you just are so amazing that it does seem to make those people who lack imagination and heart seem dull.
