Zodiac, Self

Everyone’s got weird little quirks that drive others crazy. It’s just a part of being human, and when it comes to other humans, we’ve all got our own preferences and pet peeves, too.

We’re all looking for the perfect friend or lover, but we know that perfection is impossible. We learn to put up with each other and try to focus on the good points. We may even check our horoscope for some solace.

Is it really a big deal that your spouse is messy? Or that your best friend always shows up five minutes late? Or that your co-worker snaps his gum and hums to himself? Well, okay, gum-snapping and humming are pretty annoying, but that doesn't mean he’s a terrible person.

However, there are a few unfortunate personality traits that aren't just annoying, but downright hurtful: dishonesty, breaking promises, cruelty, selfishness, clinginess and, of course, some of the zodiac signs are a lot more predisposed to these behaviors than others.

No matter where someone falls on this spectrum, though, there’s always room for improvement. Too many people think they can use their zodiac sign as an excuse to act like a jerk, but this is just plain lazy.

We’re given a certain set of parameters at birth that we have to learn to work with, take advantage of, or even overcome. Nothing in an astrology chart is a life sentence. Even the worst signs and planetary aspects are more like warning signals. We can learn to change and concentrate on the positive side of our signs rather than letting the negative sides take over our lives and relationships.

Each chart is unique and shows details about an individual’s strengths and weaknesses. If you’re close to someone who’s so annoying and hurtful that you can’t stand to be around them, look at the rest of their chart and help them figure out how to use their strengths to move beyond their weaknesses.

Now, here are the most annoying zodiac signs, ranked from least annoying to most annoying.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn’s focus on practicality and efficiency can come off as mean, but they don’t get any satisfaction out of hurting others. It’s all about long-term results with Capricorn, so if they have to be a little cruel to ensure productivity and security, don’t take it personally. Under that unyielding exterior is a trustworthy soul who’s willing to stick with you forever.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leo can’t stay out of the spotlight, for sure, but it’s not due to selfishness! They genuinely require lots attention and praise to be happy. Leo has a huge heart with plenty of room for all. Once Leo’s needs are fulfilled, they will go to great lengths to make sure everyone else gets equal time on stage.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libra can seem a little flaky. They tend to seek out big parties and shiny objects instead of the “deeper” connections and sentiments, but consider their reasons. Libra is a champion of balance and beauty and will devote all of their own energy to making sure that those around them have a peaceful, pleasant environment.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer is kind of mopey, sure, but all the water signs often get stuck in their own emotions. Cancer is also fiercely attached to family and close friends and will stop at nothing to make sure that those whom they love have everything they need. If you let Cancer know that you really notice and appreciate everything they do, they’ll just keep finding more ways to make you happy.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus is a lot like Cancer: territorial and protective of everyone and everything it holds dear. And like the other Earth signs, Taurus is reliable and trustworthy. That stubborn streak, though. There’s no arguing with Taurus once their mind is made up. Good thing that their natural common sense is usually on the right track.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius cares deeply about so many things: they really want the whole world to be a better place for everyone. Unfortunately, Aquarius tends to only see things on the grand scale. They have a great relationship with the human race, but when it comes to connecting with individual humans, Aquarius becomes distant and impossible. If you find this too annoying, just go away and find someone else — Aquarius won’t feel bad. They won’t even notice.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius is just plain fun. There’s never a dull moment with Sagittarius around, and while that’s great for awhile, they just don’t stop. They’re open-minded, brutally honest (can’t handle the truth? Don’t ask for Sagittarius’ opinion), and always looking toward the next big idea and adventure. They do try to maintain connections with those they care about, but if you can’t keep up, you’re going to get left behind.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpio gets a bad rap. Yes, they’re among the most annoying zodiac signs — they’re secretive, manipulative, and dramatic. But Scorpio knows things, and Scorpio can make things happen. It takes work to get close to them. Like the creature for which they’re named, you might not want to get too close. But if you treat Scorpio with respect and make your own boundaries clear, they will become one of your most valuable allies.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo just can’t get out of their own way. The most high-strung of the signs, they’re obsessive, picky, and fragile. They tend to be cynical and pessimistic since they can’t help but notice everything that could possibly go wrong. Virgo really does want to help, though. Let them make lists and organize things. If they feel like people are listening to them and making necessary changes, they’ll relax and show you their gentle, fun side.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries is ruled by Mars, the god of war. They don’t mean to be bossy or rebellious, but they won’t apologize if you call them on it, either. They just know exactly how they want things to go and they’re going to do it like that no matter what. Aries is a leader or a loner, never a follower. While this seems admirable at first, it gets old fast when every little thing turns into a major battle.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini will never tell you what they really think because not even Gemini knows what Gemini really thinks. They adjust their own personality from one moment to the next to make themselves as attractive as possible to everyone they meet. You can never be sure if Gemini is showing you their true heart or if they’re just trying to trick you into giving them yours because they don’t actually have one of their own.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces, oh, Pisces. What did you do to deserve being named the most annoying sign in the zodiac? With your gentle nature, your good intentions, your great big dreams, well... see, that’s the problem. Pisces tends to forget that not everyone feels things as deeply and honestly as they do.

They open themselves to everyone, and are always surprised and devastated when they get hurt. Because Pisces’ world is built on their own fragile emotions and fantasies, they require constant support from friends and family who have heard the same sob stories many, many times before.
