zodiac signs who hold grudges

As Alexander Pope once so eloquently wrote, “To err is human; to forgive, divine.” And, of course, he was completely right, because forgiveness? Wow. That’s a tough one to pull off — real tough, depending on who’s asking for that forgiveness.

But when you're one of the zodiac signs who hold grudges, it can be difficult to let go. And while your horoscope can provide insight into your personality traits, forgiving someone for wronging you isn't so easy.

While some may never have the ability to forgive, which is a shame (albeit understandable in some cases), it’s those who are strong enough to forgive but never forget who are a tricky breed to figure out. It’s almost as if you wish they never forgave you at all, so you wouldn’t have to keep hearing about whatever it was that warranted forgiveness over and over and over again. 

1. CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)

For the most part, Capricorn sucks at forgiving anyone for anything. If you wrong a Capricorn, after month and months, or maybe even years and years, it will appear on the surface that they’ve forgiven you, but considering how often they need to bring up what caused such strife in your relationship, one can’t help but wonder if they’ve actually been forgiven by Capricorn at all.

Capricorn will take any and all opportunities to remind you of what you did that hurt them so much. Sounds like a blast.

2. PISCES (February 19 – March 20)

There’s no sign in the Zodiac that can hold a grudge quite like Pisces. All other signs don’t even come close in this regard. But while Pisces will hold a grudge for their entire lives, they will forgive somewhere along the line, but will never let you forget.

Pisces may not be as obvious in showing you that they haven’t forgotten and never will, but they’ll definitely make snide comments often enough to make you feel uncomfortable. Fun!

3. SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)

When it comes to humanity, Scorpio has high expectations. What this means is that if you wrong a Scorpio, you should probably move immediately, right out of town, until they reach out and say you’re forgiven.

But where the issues lie with Scorpio is that while they’ll forgive you, they’ll always be disappointed in you and that look of disappointment will never go away. So while they won’t say with words that they haven’t forgotten, their face will say otherwise, which might be even worse.

4. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)

It's Sagittarius’ inner optimism that allows they them to forgive, and definitely forgive more easily than Capricorn, Pisces, and Scorpio. But their forgiveness comes from a place of just simply not caring what people think.

They’ll never forget, that’s for sure, but they won’t waste their time reminding you because Sagittarius doesn’t care deeply enough to do so. Which kinda sucks and forces you to realize that they don’t make for the best of friends or romantic partners.

5. ARIES (March 21 – April 19)

Aries will forgive you simply because Aries needs to take the high road, if only to brag that they took the high road.

But it’s also this cockiness, that trait that forces them to always think they’re right, that will have them reminding you what you did, again, only to brag that they would never do whatever it was you did that warranted forgiveness.
