zodiac signs that take things too seriously

No matter what your horoscope tells you about your personality, we can all agree that there’s nothing worse than having that random stranger approach us on the street only to say the words, “Smile!” especially if that intervention is followed by, “You look so much prettier when you do!” While annoying, obnoxious and thoroughly uncalled for, there are people in the world who could seriously use a “de-pouting.”

Interestingly enough, there are people who live in a permanent state of thoughtful analysis, rendering them way too serious for the average Joe to enjoy having a conversation with. It can be a bit intimidating to engage in what one might consider “fun” with someone who has a puss on, constantly.

Whether these people are just glum by nature, or simply opposed to lightening up, these smile-free types may have their uber-serious ways rooted in astrology. Here are the zodiac signs that take things too seriously and might just be the biggest sour-pusses of all time.

1. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

It’s not as if Pisces doesn’t laugh at what they find funny, it’s that they’d rather sulk and judge than express any sign of joyfulness. Pisces is at home in self-pity, and if they can extend the licking of their wounds to an unreasonably long amount of time, they will. So your laughs and jokes may be heard by your Pisces friend, but don’t think for a moment that they actually care. Now, talk about something dismal and you’ll stimulate your Pisces friend just enough for them to contribute... maybe.

2. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Your Virgo friend or mate may be very good at cracking a really good joke, but don’t expect them to laugh at yours. Virgos have a strict set of standards and it’s near to impossible to live up to their expectations. They revel in hate and negativity, and if they crack a smile, it’s more than likely due to something they heard or saw that tickled their sense of Schadenfreude or getting off on other people’s misfortune. Serious to a fault, they are severe and strict, and if you cross their very fragile line of what’s right or wrong, you will find yourself staring into their super0cold eyes. Virgo is judging you, so make no mistake that they are one of the zodiac signs that take things too seriously.

3. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Case closed. Scorpio is dead serious, and even when they’re messing with you, they’re dead serious. Nobody loves a good practical joke like Scorpio, but don’t even bother to protest if you are the one who’s being toyed with. The Scorpio defense is this: “Can’t you take a joke?” They have mastered the art of projecting their own insecurities on to others, which is their best defense. “It’s not me, it’s you.” Your Scorpio friend or mate “allows” you to make them smile, but one false move and — zap! Scorpio’s deadpan gaze will fall down on you like a curtain. Game over.
