What Makes Each Zodiac Sign Angry At You

Is someone mad at you?

So your friend is acting a little weird. Maybe they don’t return your texts right away. Maybe they don’t respond to your social media status. Maybe there’s just something different and cold in the way they’ve been looking at you lately. You wrack your brain, trying to think of what you might have done to make them mad, but you know that if you were to ask them about it, they’d just say that everything is fine.


Some people seem to always be mad about something. Others have a short fuse, but are equally quick to forget the whole thing after they’ve blown off a little steam. Then there are those people who can nurse a grudge for years, even after everyone else has completely forgotten what the problem might have been.

You can check the horoscopes for signs that something’s amiss from day to day, but if you want to know how a person processes and expresses anger throughout their lives, you’ll need to see their full astrology chart.

Look at the position of Mars when they were born, and see what planets show up in Aries (the sign that Mars rules). Mars and Aries are associated with passion and rage, and their interactions with other planets and signs in the chart will give you a detailed look at the role that anger plays in someone’s life.


Anger is a useful emotion, but we know that holding on to it for too long isn’t good for us. Not only does it turn a good day rotten, but the extra stress can actually make you physically ill if it doesn’t get a regular outlet.

Here’s why each zodiac sign gets angry, how they tend to repress their anger, and how you might convince them to talk about what’s bugging them.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Considering this sign is associated with war, Aries isn’t likely to hold on to their anger for very long. When Aries is mad, you know it. Their face turns red, their hands ball up into fists, and they just can’t control themselves.


You don’t need to pry it out of them, but you might have to convince them to talk it out instead of yelling and punching things.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

It takes a lot to get Taurus really riled up. When someone does cross their line, though, you’ll see the walls go up: Taurus is protective, possessive, and stubborn.


If they see you as a threat or a traitor, you’ll have a hard time getting them to open up to you about anything. A peace offering of rich food or a luxurious trinket can help you convince them to let you in again.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

This sign is known for sociability and communication. When Gemini gets really angry, the worst thing they can think to do is to ignore that person and try to drive them away from the rest of the group.

If you can get Gemini alone, chances are they won’t be able to resist talking, so give them a chance to vent and then you can try to smooth things over.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer holds their emotions close, including their rage. Getting them to tell you what they’re mad about is worse than pulling teeth, but you’ll know something’s wrong.

Cancer mopes, sulks, and lays the guilt trips on thick. They need to be coerced to tell you what’s going on, but try not to get sucked in by the passive-aggressive guilt tripping and self-pity.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)



Leo rarely holds things in: when truly angry, they’ll roar about it like the Lion they’re named for. If they try to hold back, though, they start to whine like a petulant teenager.

Chances are you won’t have to ask them about it more than once — they’re looking for an opportunity to get it off their chest. Leo doesn’t like being mad, so they’ll gladly work things out as soon as possible.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

As hyper-critical as Virgo can be, they try to avoid actual conflict. When something’s eating at them, chances are they’ll hold their tongue to avoid a fight.


They’ll just start nit-picking and fussing over more and more tiny details without addressing the real issue. They’ll be more willing to tell you what’s really going on if they feel assured that it won’t turn into an emotional argument.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

If you have to wonder whether Libra is mad at you, then the answer is probably no. Libra is an expert at controlling their anger: they prefer to avoid confrontations, and they’re great at letting go of small issues that won’t matter for long.

However, if Libra shuts you out entirely, be prepared for one of two things: either they’re preparing to blow up at you later and demand that you make up for whatever you did, or you’ll just never hear from them again.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

If Scorpio is angry with you, they might not give you any signs at all... until it’s too late. Scorpio is known for being in full control of their emotions (on the outside, anyway), and they love the idea of vengeance.

You might have a chance to redeem yourself if you’re among Scorpio’s few close friends. If they trusted you once, they might be willing to take off the mask long enough to tell you what you did wrong and accept an apology.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)



Sagittarius doesn’t like being angry. That’s no way to spend your energy when the world is so full of pleasant things to do and think about. Besides that, Sagittarius isn’t known for tact, so they’ll probably tell you when something is wrong before you even suspect.

Then again, they might just decide that the whole relationship is a waste of time and disappear without an explanation. You’ll get a postcard when they get over it.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn has a reputation of being the grumpiest sign in the Zodiac, so how can you tell when they’re nursing a real grudge? They become even more non-communicative than usual, and find a lot of work-related excuses to avoid you.


You’ll want to corner them and get them to air their grievances sooner rather than later, because all that work they’re doing lately probably involves a detailed plan for vengeance that you won’t like.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

You haven’t truly experienced the “silent treatment” until you’ve gotten on an Aquarius’ bad side. They love humanity in general, but relationships with individual humans aren’t high on their to-do list.


It’s rare that an Aquarius gets close enough to someone to ever get truly angry with them. Violate that honor and they’re likely to just write you off completely and forget you exist.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Your Pisces is crying again? Is something really wrong, or did they just see their favorite sad commercial on TV?


Pisces’ life is an emotional roller coaster to begin with. They worry and over-analyze every little emotion, but they don’t want to upset anyone else, so they might be reluctant to talk openly with someone who’s made them mad.

Just ask your Pisces what’s on their mind, but be ready for a long, heartfelt answer. A small, earnest prompt should be enough to get them to spill.
