How Each Zodiac Sign's Behavior Changes Out Of The Blue, According To Astrology

Just when you think you know a person well, they may end up doing something that surprises you. After all, people are imperfect, unpredictable beings and change is inevitable.

But a sudden, seemingly-inexplicable change in behavior might be the result of the person’s zodiac sign, according to astrology. Each of the 12 zodiac signs are affected by a unique blend of events and experiences, all of which can really mess with someone’s personality.

For instance, someone who is typically very kind-mannered and reserved may start behaving recklessly and wildly. Or perhaps someone who is usually an open book might start being secretive. Whatever the case, getting to the bottom of this sudden change in a person's behavior could be the key to helping the person get back to being their usual self.

Here's why some people suddenly change the way that they act, by zodiac sign according to each horoscope in astrology.


ARIES (March 21 – April 19)


At their core, Aries loves to be active. They’re always seeking the best thing to do, and they get frustrated if their work isn’t a sufficient use of their talents. This seems like a recipe for volatile emotions.

Aries may feel comfortable in a situation at first, but once they become frustrated, they won’t hesitate to make their feelings known. Aries also tends to have mood swings, and this adds to the inconsistency that you may detect in their demeanor. 

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)


One of Taurus’ major goals is maintaining stability and security. They’re known to stick to their routines and stay in their comfort zones, so they would likely perceive new, unfamiliar situations as threats to their reliability and overall well-being.


Pushing them into uncharted territory may shock their system and cause a shift in their thoughts and actions. This shift may be of particularly high magnitude if their abilities to think rationally become strained.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)


Gemini has a tendency to seek out and develop close relationships with others, so being wronged by someone in their life would have a monumental impact on them. They may be very open minded, but even Gemini could be pushed to their limits if they feel betrayed by someone they are close to.

If this happens, they may become increasingly more nervous, get lost in thought, or start acting more restless.


CANCER (June 21 – July 22)


Cancer is committed to helping and caring for others; though this is admirable, it could come at the expense of their own well-being if Cancer isn’t careful. They are also guided by emotion and intuition, so signs of imbalance in either one of these areas could shift their behavior.

Perhaps an unanticipated conflict with someone close to them has surprised them and clouded their judgment, or someone who they often help and care for does not reciprocate. These events would destabilize Cancer’s emotional center, potentially leading to mood swings.

LEO (July 23 – August 22)


Leo loves to laugh and is always seeking experiences that they can enjoy. They thrive on the support and admiration from others and may seem to be on an endless quest for self-fulfillment.

Their hope is to establish themselves in as secure a position as possible, but problems will arise for Leo if this doesn’t go according to plan. Leo’s mind, skilled in problem-solving, will become hyper-focused on finding any way to overcome their struggles and regain their security, often at the expense of recognizing the needs of others.

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)


Virgo wants to maintain purity and regularity in their life, and they take comfort in being able to help others. Anything standing in the way of these goals has the potential to cause a change in Virgo and reveal the critical and self-destructive sides of their personality.


If confronted with a problem, Virgo may start to focus their energies on small details, thereby weakening their abilities to actually solve it.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)


Libra is most content when they feel a sense of balance and fairness in their life. They will try to surround themselves with people who embody these values as well, hoping that conflicts with others will be few and far between.

Instead of causing a confrontation when something is bothering them, Libra will favor keeping the peace, and will attempt to do this by holding a grudge. They may become distant or short with the person who they feel wronged them, effectively straining the relationship despite Libra’s hopes for business as usual.


SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)


Scorpio places lots of value on their friendships, but they also strongly desire the truth. In some cases, these two priorities may find themselves in conflict with one another. A friend who hides something from Scorpio will quickly get on their bad side.

If Scorpio feels betrayed, their distrusting, secretive nature will be on full display. Once this happens, it’ll be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to get back in Scorpio’s good graces.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)


Due to their extroversion and enthusiasm, Sagittarius has a relatively easy time finding and maintaining friendships. However, those who get too close will end up driving Sagittarius away.

If someone becomes too clingy and dependent on them, Sagittarius will feel constrained and immediately start taking steps to regain their freedom. And they won’t be afraid to make their feelings blatantly obvious, so you can expect to hear the brutal truth from them.


CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)


Capricorns are natural leaders and stop at nothing to reach their ambitious goals. Since life is unpredictable, it could throw a wrench into their plans, and this would not sit well with Capricorn.

If a person tries to stand in their way, Capricorn may start to act distant and harsh toward them, and they may have a hard time forgiving them when all is said and done. They’re also really skilled at keeping secrets, so it may be hard to tell if they’re even having a problem.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)


At their best, Aquarius is helpful, inviting, and open-minded. This seems like a great recipe for success in relationships with others, but it could be derailed if Aquarius feels their freedom is threatened.


They also dislike broken promises and disagreements, so either of these could cause a change in Aquarius for the worse. If any of these situations arise, Aquarius will put up their guard and distance themselves from the person they feel wronged by.

PISCES (February 19 – March 20)


Pisces’ friendly nature can be one of their greatest strengths, but it could lead to their downfall if they’re not careful. They may be too quick to become dependent on others, and having one of these dependent relationships go sour could send them into a tailspin.

As part of this, Pisces may turn their frustrations inward, becoming self-destructive and self-pitying, especially if they feel criticized or attacked. They may also experience feelings of sadness or become fearful as a result.
