These signs make themselves crazy.

Who’s neurotic? “Not I,” said everyone in the room.

On some level, we’re all at least a little neurotic even if we don’t want to admit it. Being neurotic and admitting it is like saying you’re unpredictable and possibly untrustworthy. You could range from being a ticking time bomb to a needy self-hater who simply bugs people to death with their insecurity. And why would the sign you are born under make a difference?

One thing that’s good to know about astrology is that the placement of the planets in the sky at the time of your birth is very much what effects and creates the person you are. Some planets have an aggressive streak to them, meaning that their presence in the sky has shown up during times of war; this can also go for times of peace, times of incredible creativity, and times of mental fortitude.

The stars and planets give off vibrations that affect human beings down here on earth, and that is why we both study them and respect them for their mysterious invisible power.

And that would mean that there are zodiac signs that work the nerves of those who are born under them just a little more than others. Of course, all the planets are present in the sky when we are born, but some are more present than others. And depending on your birth date, your nerves, patience, and self-confidence may be rocked to the core, leaving you a neurotic mess.

It’s true whether we admit it or not that we’ve all got a touch of neurosis. I suppose that’s only human. And issues will crop up for every zodiac sign when it comes to overdoing it on the nerves. So, here are the most neurotic zodiac signs that show just how batty you can be.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries are more neurotic than can ever be put into words. The harder they come, the harder they fall, and for these very strong personalities, much of what makes up their intense kind of strength needs constant reassurance. When Aries isn’t flattered and built up, they sink into depression and wonder what went wrong, and usually end up blaming the other person for not seeing how great they really are.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

“Neurotic, me? Oh no, never,” says Taurus, as he or she runs to the mirror to make sure the image that goes with the false display of self-confidence looks brave and assertive. Taurus is as insecure as the rest of us, only they loathe to admit that they’re anything but golden.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Geminis are completely neurotic. One interesting thing about Gemini folks is that they take responsibility for their weaknesses and actually attempt to get past them. If anyone in the zodiac seriously wants to get better on a personal level, as far as insecurity goes, it’s our doubly blessed Gemini friend.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Luckily for Cancers, they can self-deceive so easily that they rarely feel the full brunt of their own neurosis. Much like Aries in this regard, Cancer folks don’t like to look at themselves in the mirror for the purpose of finding their own faults. Self-deception is huge with the neurotic Cancer, who absolutely does not want to have to work on fixing themselves.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Well, you don’t rise to the top of the heap without being neurotic enough to watch your every move to make sure they’re all top notch. And Leo is always the top of the heap. These superstars may be good at what they do, but being on top takes work and that means constant personal inventory. Every time a Leo says, “I am the greatest,” they have the simultaneous thought of, “Will I still be the greatest tomorrow?”

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgos are one of the most neurotic zodiac signs. Why do you think they love to judge everyone else so harshly? It’s because they find fault with every single thing they do, and living like that is hard because no one really wants to feel bad about themselves. So, when Virgo starts to get down on themselves, they take it out on everyone else. Know any Virgo folks like this? I bet you do.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libra might be the least of the neurotics, but that doesn’t mean their vanity can’t be ruffled. Libra takes pride in being right — they have a reputation to uphold, after all. But if Libra is challenged, they become defensive and that is where they show their insecurity. And in that show, they really deteriorate, because that was their last stronghold on coming across as “The Balanced One.”

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Let’s just say these folks rarely if ever admit to being neurotic. They have a very carefree attitude that is carefully designed to protect them, much like the carapace of an actual scorpion. But what is a carapace if not a protective shell that guards their soft underbelly. Scorpios are surprisingly sensitive, which makes them hide the fact that they, too, are as neurotic as the next guy.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Another fire sign that stands tall and poses big, and beneath that fiery posture you’ve got a basket case of neuroses to deal with. Sagittarius come with high intelligence and easy confidence, but let’s not forget that Sag is the most competitive of all the signs, and if they don’t win, they will withdraw from everything to sit in a dark room where they’ll self-reflect into a ball of pure neurosis.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Here's another sign who won’t admit they’re wrong or weak or sensitive or neurotic. It’s just a Capricorn thing, and these late December/early January types are just as freaked out about life as they are cool and reserved about expressing it. Capricorn wants to be Leo, they just can’t admit it.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Neurotic is the word with the water bearers. They are truly wonders when it comes to keeping up appearances and never underestimate the power of an Aquarius when it comes to managing heavy burdens, but this super strength of theirs always wears them down, and it’s the Aquarians that have the major temper tantrums when they finally break down.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

While we all know that Pisces are the sensitive, weepy types, they are not that interested in weeping for the wrong reasons, meaning they don’t feel sorry for themselves and they rarely spend time torturing themselves over something that did wrong or didn’t like. They choose they weepy tears for love and rejection, but they are probably the least neurotic of the signs.
