Zodiac Signs Who Are Sore Losers Vs. Those Who Don't Always Need To Win, Ranked

Regardless of who you are, losing is never something you look forward to. Unless you are Wonder Woman, there will be a time in your life when you will lose at something, no matter how competitive you are. It might be something big or it might be something small, but inevitably it happens to all of us.

Looking at your individual zodiac sign can help determine how you compare to other horoscope personalities when it comes to playing a game and not landing on the top. Perhaps you aren’t as bad you thought, or perhaps you are the epitome of what it means to be a sore loser.

Even though we all experience this, some of us are better at losing than others. Were you that Scorpio kid who held a 10-year grudge against the team that beat you in the 7th-grade championship basketball game, or did you shrug it off like an Aquarius and realize there’s more to life than a basketball game at 12 years old?

A sore loser is someone who loses a competition fair and square, but instead of moving on, he or she chooses to whine about her loss and acts like a sore loser, sometimes in the way that a person with strong Taurus personality traits may do on a bad day. In addition to whining, blaming others and refusing to accept responsibility are also traits of a sore loser, and those traits are well defined by looking at your horoscope through the eyes of astrology. 

This isn’t exactly the type of person others enjoy being around, and although kids can get away with it a little more, it’s especially unattractive in an adult. In typical sore loser fashion though, these people aren’t usually aware of this quality in themselves.

Reading this, you might wonder where your zodiac sign falls in line when it comes to being a sore loser. Maybe you are someone who handles losing with grace and dignity, or maybe you refuse to even think about the idea of losing. 

We've ranked all the zodiac signs from the ones who can tolerate losing the best, to the ones who are the biggest sore losers of all. Check out your zodiac sign below to see how much of a sore loser you really are, according to astrology, by zodiac sign. We've ranked each horoscope from those least likely to handle losing well, to those who handle loss like a champ.

1. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

You're the aggressive Aries who not only lives for competition but also winning. People should really think twice before challenging you to something. Unfortunately, though, you're not perfect and sometimes coming out on top won't be guaranteed. The bad news is that you are the worst zodiac signs went it comes to being a sore loser. Hell hath no fury like an Aries who didn't win, and this makes you the biggest sore loser of all. 

2. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

When it comes to losing, a Capricorn is one of the sorest. Your unforgiving nature refuses to let go, and there's a good chance you have a lot of long-held grudges against anyone who beat you at something. People may tell you to forget it, but they probably don't realize just how stubborn you are.

3. LEO (July 23 - August 22)

A Leo loves the spotlight and knows very well that winning equates being treated like the king or queen that you are. However, when you lose, it's not a pretty picture, and you have a hard time coping with that reality. You may have been told that you lost, but accepting it is a whole other story. Classic sore loser symptom.

4. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

You may be patient and reliable, but you are just as stubborn. Any complications that arise, like losing, rub you the wrong way, and because losing can trigger your insecurities, it tends to become more personal for you. That stubborn personality though, means that you're likely to dwell on the subject long after, making you quite the sore loser.

5. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

You're a very emotional and sensitive zodiac sign, which means that you can be moody and pessimistic. A negative outlook and taking things too personally aren't helpful. While you may not be a sore loser for a long time, when you're in the mood to whine about it, people should be warned. 

6. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

As a Pisces, you may be friendly and selfless, but when things don't go your way, you develop a victim mentality. This is notorious for sore losers, and something you may want to work on when you see this trait expressed in yourself.

7. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Achieving a goal is really important to you, and you do everything in your power to make that happen. Although it seems like this would be cause for a sore loser personality, thankfully, your optimism and a great sense of humour prevent this from happening. Laughing off the situation and realizing there is always a next time helps you move on. 

8. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

You are quite the resourceful zodiac sign and enjoy a good challenge. Although you prefer to win those challenges, you are great at remaining calm and cool when you don't. Because truth and facts are important to you, making excuses for why you lost, which is a trait of a sore loser, is not in your nature.

9. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Instead of complaining and holding a grudge, you focus on what you can improve on for the next opportunity. Congratulations! You are the most mature zodiac sign when it comes to losing. No Virgo sore losers here! 

10. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

You may be somewhat temperamental, but the good news is that you are also a problem solver and a deep thinker. If you lose at something, you're going to think about what happened and then find a way to fix that problem for next time. You're not a sore loser zodiac sign.

11. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

As a Gemini, you can adapt very well and are ready to roll with the punches. When it comes to losing, you handle yourself very well thanks to your easy-going and adaptable personality. 

12. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)


You are peaceful, fair-minded and diplomatic, so you don't mind taking a loss from time to time. You understand that you can't win everything and that it is totally OK. This makes you one of the least-likely zodiac signs to act like a sore loser.
