The Absolute Worst Zodiac Signs To Get Into A Fight With, RANKED
Zodiac, Self

When it comes to being argumentative, some signs are more, ahem... crabby than others. And their horoscopes can reveal how they react to others when they aren't feeling so chipper.

Take, for example, Leos and Cancers. The signs of lions and crabs, they are the more aggressive and transparent fighters of the bunch. And Scorpios? Forget it, they'll never let it go. But if you get into an argument with a Pisces, they'll be more self-critical of themselves than they are of you, and a Libra will straight up just lie about how they are feeling in an effort to avoid conflict at all costs.

For better or worse, each zodiac sign responds to adversity and conflict differently. Understanding each can help you know how to approach them.

Here are the worst zodiac signs to fight with, ranked,

It's time to learn who is a fair fighter and who you never, ever want to cross.

1. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Naturally, the sign of the scorpion comes in first as the sign you absolutely do not want to get into a fight with.

It's not that they are the most aggressive of the signs (that's a Leo, usually) but rather that they have a very hard time letting go of things once they've happened. If you get into a fight with a Scorpio, they will not forget about it, even if it seems as though they return to acting as normal.

Scorpios aren't the most vindictive, but they are the darkest and most sensitive when they feel criticized or unfairly judged.

It's not the intensity of a Scorpio's wrath that you should fear, but the longevity of it. In their minds, your arguments will go on for years.

2. LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leos are the sign that will come after you in a fight. If you insult or attack them or anybody they care about, they will be the most vicious in retaliation.

The lion is a fierce protector and doesn't like the feeling of being threatened or impeded upon. Though Leos won't hold grudges in the way that Scorpios might, they will be the most ruthless of everyone, and you're bound to get your feelings hurt more than anybody else with a Leo.

3. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

When you get into an argument with a Taurus, you are also likewise in an argument with everyone they know and love. Tauruses are very tribe-oriented people, and they are also stubborn. That means that even if they're totally in the wrong, they will be the last people to admit it, which can be frustrating.

Though they are intense when aggravated, they are not the most obvious about it. While Leos will be very transparent about their feelings, Tauruses will put on a façade that everything is still okay, which is perhaps the scariest tactic of all.

4. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancers are tough to get into arguments with because they are, after all, the emotional crab.

They will take whatever you say, exaggerate and inflate it, and then turn it around and use it against you. They take everything so personally and become very bitter if they think that you have intentionally tried to wrong them. Do not anticipate continuing to be friends with a Cancer after a major fight has happened.

They might forgive you, but in the back of their minds, they will truly never forget.

5. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarians are uniquely argumentative because they always think that they are right.

A Sagittarius will not be aggressive in their fighting style; rather, they will try to find the most logical and cunning argument and then gently slaughter you with it in a very polite tone of voice. They are difficult to argue with because you will need to present a rationale that is superior to theirs to get them to listen to you at all.

Otherwise, they will hold to what they think is true, even if they are totally disillusioned about it.

6. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Like a Sag, an Aries will argue with logic. However, unlike a Sag, an Aries will become absolutely indignant about the fact that they even have to fight with you in the first place.

Not only do they think that arguing is beneath them, they tend to get annoyed if someone doesn't innately understand something that they perceive to be self-evident. You will have to give them a little bit of time to accept if they are wrong about something, they won't immediately admit it to your face.

But Aries like to be peacekeepers, so though they will argue for what they think is just, they will usually let it go for the sake of keeping relations peaceful.

7. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarians are not confrontational, despite what some people would believe. When they get mad, they'd much prefer to subtweet on Twitter or just make a passive-aggressive comment and then vent about it to someone else later.

They don't like to argue, though they are highly opinionated people. If you end up in an argument with an Aquarius, they will try to find a common ground more than they will try to prove that they are right.

However, if they think you are being blind or ignorant to something, you will know. It's against their nature to not speak out about stuff like that.

8. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

It takes a lot to make a Capricorn mad, so if and when you do, beware. However, they are not that difficult to argue with because they will be more focused on how you can arrive at a mutually-agreed-upon solution rather than how far they can push it to prove themselves "right."

Caps believe in rules and logic and like thinking in black-and-white terms. It will frustrate them if you defy their clean lines of thinking with an argument that doesn't seem logically sound to them.

However, they won't really lash out at you over it. They'll go home and reconsider how they think for themselves.

9. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Geminis are so dependent on other people that they will go to great lengths not to ever have to argue with the people that they know and love.

However, when push comes to shove, they will lash out in an almost shockingly aggressive way if they need to. (Beware if you insult their partners or kids — that's when they are fiercest.)

However, that type of reaction usually doesn't come from a Gemini unless it's totally deserved. Geminis are lovers, not fighters, and that side of them never comes out unless what they love is being threatened.

10. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgos can get testy if you insult them (they are very sensitive) but in the end, they will be more concerned about what they are potentially doing wrong than they are identifying what you are doing wrong.

Virgos are such humanitarians by nature that they will do anything to keep the peace. They are not aggressive fighters and will be open-minded if you present to them an idea that perhaps they haven't considered before.

All in all, while they might seem easily agitated by their own anxieties, they are not the worst people to fight with.

11. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces don't want to argue with anyone, but they are so sensitive that they can get overwhelmed by their emotions if they feel insulted or ashamed.

Not to worry though, Pisces are more inclined to take out their frustrations on themselves than they ever are anyone else. If a Pisces is mad, there is a good reason and they'll express how they feel, but they'll also move on quickly.

12. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

The sign of the lovers and the scales, Libras are among the least likely to ever want to be in an argument with anyone — ever.

They would actually prefer to keep their social circles small and concise in an effort to avoid conflict as much as possible. The only downside to this is that it will take a lot for you to find out how a Libra really feels.

They are the least likely of all the signs to be transparent and honest about their thoughts and emotions.
