5 Biggest Crybabies Of The Zodiac — And What Appeases Them

Oh, boohoo.

We all have that friend that cries easily. In fact, we might even BE that friend. I certainly know that when I’m around certain people, there’s a good chance that we will both share something "so intense" to us, even if it's an insanely deep horoscope, that we’ll be sobbing ugly tears and touching our hearts, knowing we just did it again: achieved a new rung on the connected close friend ladder. 


Crying — the act of it — has always come with its own reputation. A sign of weakness, a show of vulnerability? Too much, never at all?

Sometimes another’s tears can make us feel guilty, while we could also interpret their sadness as an unwelcome burden to come. Because often times, the tears are a prelude to bigger disasters that require lots and lots of attention.

And then there’s the boy who cried wolf, as the story goes. Those who use tears as manipulation, for attention, to draw us in further, to entangle us in things we didn’t sign on for. Those are the secret thoughts we think because when someone cries, we are programmed to be compassionate and be there for them. But still, we didn’t always sign on for the crybaby with too much time on their hands.


So, is there a predisposition within our range of zodiac signs that would cause one sign to be more of a crybaby than another? Who are the biggest zodiac crybabies of ‘em all?

1. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

I could stop here, but there’s an article to be written. But truly, Aries, you are the biggest, fattest baby baby of them all. You are the Olympic Crybaby and everyone in your life knows it and runs in terror from you once you get on a tear.


They all know your tricks and they’ll all hold your hand. You’re the boy/girl who cried wolf... and you keep on crying. My guess is that you’ll never stop.

What appeases Aries? Letting them have their way. They don’t need your belief or even your friendship, they simply need to know that you’re on board with their idea and that you’re going to listen to them all the way through.

2. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)



It’s as if you can just take so much, Gemini, and then — pop. I would go as far as to say you’re sociopathic, one day cool, calm and collected and the next day on FIRE with self-doubt. But you put up a front that your friends have come to see crumble from time to time.

And when you fall, Gemini, you fall hard. And we all hear about it. You purge and you move on. But while you’re stuck in self pity and all that comes with it, you wail and moan like the rest of the alleycats.

What appeases Gemini? Knowing you believe in them. Unlike Aries, they actually care what you think. What’s easier to deal with is that once they get your attention, they no longer care to hold on to it.

3. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Passive-aggressive to a fault, Libra will bemoan their fate publicly, loudly and always with the disclaimer of, "Don't take this personally..." while they slam you to the ground. Libra loves to indulge in a massive personal pity party; bring on the attention and the comradery because they relish the idea of people commiserating with them.

In fact, Libra loves to be agreed with so much that they make it into a damned party, until, of course, you call them out and ask them what they're "really" talking about. Then it's all, "Oh, I don't mean YOU, per se..." Good ol' passive-aggressive behavior.


How to appease the Libra crybaby? Nod and agree. Keep your opinions to yourself, feel sorry for them or whatever, but just witness and walk away. Libra can get pretty pathetic when they're on a self-pity tear.

4. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)



Face it: nothing pleases Virgo, and if being a crybaby is how they get your attention, then understand that it might be more along the lines of a "b*tchbaby."

Mouthing off, putting everyone down, and always, always hitting below the belt in the name of "personal pain and self turmoil" is the Virgo way. Hard to love a crying Virgo while they’re letting you know that it’s basically you who is ruining their lives, even if you’re not.

How to appease Virgo? Honestly, practice silence. Learn how to meditate or perhaps chant a sacred mantra while your Virgo lover is telling you off.

5. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

As if we could ever leave Pisces out of anything that something to do with tears and the bawling of one’s eyes out. Welcome home, ya big crybaby.

But here’s the thing about weepy ol’ Pisces: they’re honest about their weepy feelings. They’re just sad sacks naturally, and with the Piscean extra helping of neurosis and self-doubt, they just can’t help but feel like crying, maybe several times a day.


They don’t do it for attention, but attention is what they get. They do it because they’re water folk and it’s natural for them to cry.

What appeases Pisces? Being that they are naturally sensitive people, you might want to offer a friendly hug. Physical displays of compassion are welcome. Bring tissues, though, if you really want to get involved.
