The Most Sinister Personality Traits Of Your Zodiac Sign

We all have a dark side.

Sinister, wicked and altogether evil — lions and tigers and bears, oh my! We know that some people can be downright rotten if left to their worst tendencies, but do we all have something inside us that could be considered... evil? Or better yet, what if we had this sinister trait and were not aware of it, if that is even possible? 

A horoscope is great for pointing out our best personality characteristics, but also our flaws. And when you follow astrology, it's easy to get an idea of your worst personality traits, all based on your zodiac sign.


Sometimes, we do things that are both destructive and self-destructive without even knowing it. We develop behavior patterns at a very young age, and some of us take those habits with us all of our lives, even when those habits are, well... awful.

The truth is, human beings are deeply flawed, and as hard as we might try, we always fail at being "perfect." Now, don't get me wrong; failure is not sinister.

What is sinister is when it finally hits us that, yes, we ARE responsible for the terrible things we do, and that if we continue to do so, we are not only conscious of it, we are basically owning our sinister nature by allowing it to flourish.


We also enable the sinister behavior and traits of others by letting them get away with their evil deeds. And the same favor is done for us as well; if we start to behave terribly among people who applaud our bad behavior and/or poor treatment of others, then we throw ourselves into a box of sinister that we can't get out of.

When you have a fan club of people who love to see how bad you can be, it's like tunneling your way into Hell... except it's not as fun as the fictional Hell of sexy parties, naked devil girls, fire and brimstone. It's more about being an excessive narcissist with a following of morons who dribble and drool over your idiocy — just because.

These are the most sinister personality traits of each zodiac sign.


ARIES (March 21 - April 19): A vicious, foul and poison tongue

Leave it to Aries to deliver the worst and most insensitive lines you'll ever hear in your life. Let's just put it this way: you don't know real emotional pain until an Aries has hurt you.

They do not go down well, these warriors, and if push comes to shove in an argument, you might find yourself plummeting over the side of a bridge — and Aries will be one to do all the pushing.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20): Backstabbing and talking behind someone's back

They can't help it, these Taureans. They make loyal friends, but the second they are in the presence of someone else, that loyalty suddenly disappears.

They'll nasty-talk their own kids, their parents, their animals... if you have a friend that's a Taurus, assume they've said the worst about you to their other friends.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): Taking so much and then snapping hard

Usually, Gemini rides through life taking it as it comes, but when they are bothered, annoyed or infuriated, they lash out with the cruelest possible things to say.


It's like they turn into another person, almost, and they can be very sinister. And their sinister looks like coldness, snarky quips and absolute condescension.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22): Befriending and betraying those close to them



Cancer's true evil is in their ability to befriend people and betray them almost instantly. Cancer is not to be trusted; they are very keen on thinking they are the center of the universe and that alone is what allows them to treat others like the garbage they believe you to be.

You're replaceable to Cancer, and because of that, you should avoid ever, ever thinking your Cancer friend will stay true to you.

LEO (July 23 - August 22): Betraying without conscience

Leo can turn on a dime, and when they feel affronted or insulted, they will snipe. Their egos are so fragile that if you so much as look at them the wrong way, they'll end a life-long friendship without explanation.


They will betray your confidence, your trust, and they will do it all while blaming it on you.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22): Turning self-hate on everyone they know

What isolates Virgo the most is the fact that these people are so filled with self-hate that all they can do is reflect that hate back on to everyone in their lives. They indulge in the martyrdom of "Nobody loves me" but they cannot help but put people off, and they do it through vicious judgments, insanely horrific insults and ghastly condescension.

Virgo hates you. And you'll come to hate them back when it hits you that this is all they'll ever do.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22): Having a horrible temper

Ferocious tempers take Libra down off that high, high horse they usually ride in on. All that "niceness" has a price, and when you spend every day of your life being nice, you end up repressing a lot of what you really feel.


And for Libra, that usually ends up in a blow out of negative emotion, and a rip-roaring tantrum to beat the band. Stay out of their way when they get in a pissy mood.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21): Sadism

Yes, they are sadists. Just like the book said. Sometimes it's fun and sexy, and sometimes it's mental case material. Actually, most times it's mental case material.

Scorpios are not stable and NEED aggression; they need conflict and negativity in order to run their machines. On the other hand, if you hate yourself, hook up with a Scorpio. They'll give you everything you need to further that hate into an all time high.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21): Coldness

Doesn't sound like much, does it? And yet, the chilly nature of the Sagittarius scorned is like a vast, empty tundra of nothingness and spite. When Sag turns on you, it's OVER. They don't bother with insults or crafty put downs; they cut you out without a last word.

Everyone on earth craves the last word, but Sagittarius? They want you to have the last, stupid word, so they can disappear on you, while you wait for them to respond. Don't hold your breath.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19): Ditching you in a hot second

These gold diggers are big vocalists, but unfortunately, they can't stand on their own, so when they show off and deliver some radical "power" message to the world, they can only do it if they're in a crowd of those who feel the same way.

Capricorns are "majority rules" types, and if you aren't in their good graces, they'll tag team a revolution against you. They enjoy ripping you a new one, as long as their buddies are there to applaud.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18): Lying

Aquarians lie to get what they want, and if you confront them on it, they'll lie even further by telling you that you're wrong. This sign is made up of people who are only interested in what's going on in their own lives, and they will use the f*ck out of you to get what they want.

They'll tell you they love you, and then they'll split the minute they use you up.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20): Massive self pity

This is what rules the Piscean nature when it comes to the worst kind of sinister behavior. But is self pity sinister? Well, it sure is when it's being put out by a Pisces, because they will create such a disturbance if they don't like something that everybody's good time will have to end.

When Pisces throws a pity party, everyone is invited, no one leaves, and all are promised a miserable experience... in abundance. Thanks, Pisces!
