These 4 Zodiac Signs Were Born To Be Difficult, According To Astrology

Don’t you just hate it when people try telling you what to do? I say “try” here because they can certainly attempt to boss you around, but you’re not the type of person to let that happen.

I can definitely relate to that, almost to a fault at times. I don’t like people telling me what to do because only I can dictate my life. In fact, even if it’s probably better than I listen to someone else besides myself, I’m known to keep doing my own thing, even if it bites me in the butt later on.

I know, I know. I’m not always smart. But what can I say? I don’t like authority! Leave it to my zodiac sign, Aquarius, to think that way. Aquarius is ever the rebel of astrology and would much rather keep marching to the beat of her own drum than even think about listening to someone else.

Aquarius isn’t the only zodiac sign to feel that way, though. You might even deny being that kind of person now, but when it counts, are you going to listen to yourself or someone else? That’s what I thought.

Some zodiac signs out there are just SO difficult to deal with. Some are totally opposed to authority, while others just like to rebel for the heck of it.

But even the tiniest suggestion can set these horoscopes off, if for no other reason than the fact that they hate being told what to do.

But disobeying authority and rebelling isn’t always a bad thing – it’s just a personality trait. Sure, if you’re using your “don’t care” attitude to get yourself or others in trouble, that’s one thing. But if you’re just the kind of person who trusts themselves more than anyone else, that’s not bad at all.

Despite what your horoscope says about you, a lot of us have issues with authority figures and rulesBeing told what to do by someone who doesn’t know what’s best for you or treats everyone the same because that’s easier than seeing people as individuals can turn a lot of us off – and can make us want to rebel simply to prove that we can.

Some of the time authority figures are out for themselves; not really thinking of how whatever they’re doing will affect everyone else below them.

So, wanting to stick it to The Man – especially for a select few zodiac signs – is just something that comes naturally. For others, not so much. But these zodiac signs were born to be difficult (and sometimes impossible).

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries, you are way too stubborn to listen to anyone. It’s either your way or the highway, and you would rather do things your way (even when you know it’s wrong) than cave and listen to someone else’s reason. What can you say? Taking someone else’s lead in your life just isn’t your cup of tea. It might lead to a lot more trouble later, but that’s a problem for future Aries.

You’re also very impulsive, which is often a lot more detrimental to you than it is beneficial. You’re the kind of person – sorry, difficult person – to use your impulsive behavior to do the exact opposite of something just to spite someone. You’re especially impulsive and reckless when you know your way isn’t going to happen – so you try to do what you want anyway by deliberately not listening to other people calling the shots.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini, being the twins of the zodiac means that you have a dual personality – very often contradictory. It also means you can be very two-faced. Harsh, I know, but someone has to say it. You’re the kind of person to do the exact opposite of what someone asks of you, simply because you refuse to listen to them (and because you can).

If someone asks you to save them a seat, you’ll tell them the world doesn’t work that way. If someone says you’re hogging the blunt at a party, you’ll finish it just to spite them. For someone who is usually so good at listening and communication with friends and family, you’re incredibly obstinate (and selectively deaf) when it comes to even a hint of authority.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn, you are very pig-headed. Good luck to anyone trying to tell you what to do or steer you in another direction because once you’ve made up your mind, nothing and no one can stop you from changing it again. You have always been the kind of person to stick to your guns, but there is a right and wrong way to do just that. Just because you can be stubborn doesn’t mean you have to be.

You often tell people that you don’t do things “just because,” but when someone is brave enough to ask you why you’re being so difficult, there are times when you find yourself scrambling for an explanation. You don’t listen to anyone but yourself (obviously), but the fact that you’re intentionally impossible at times is infuriating, especially when there’s no reason to be that difficult.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius, you never bow down to authority. In fact, you market yourself as a rebel specifically so people know not to mess with you. What’s worse is that your ego is way bigger than you care to admit, which means that even if you’re setting yourself up to fail, you’ll never admit you need help. You’d much rather fail than ask for advice or assistance because that ain’t you.

You, like your fellow stubborn zodiac signs, can also be contradictory at times. You always talk about how you’re always up for learning new things and opening yourself up to new experiences. But for some reason, letting others teach you something they know more about than you is an impossible thought. Then, it just becomes “The Man” telling you what to do and you’re not about that life… even if it could actually help you.
