4 Zodiac Signs Who Always Look Angry (For No Reason At All)
Zodiac, Self

Whenever I think about the kind of bad moods I’ve been in, I always think about how I look to others. I am the (semi-proud) owner of a RBF (Resting Bitch Face), which means that even when I’m not in a bad mood, I still very much look like I am.

And when I am in a bad mood, my RBF is murderous. I remember scaring even my sister in the hallways at school into not saying hi to me because I always looked like I was going to kill someone. Sorry sis, but what can I say?

Sometimes, you just don’t want to have to deal with anyone! But whether or not a RBF is part of your everyday wardrobe, some zodiac signs really are always in a bad mood – and there’s not a lot that can make them change how they feel.

Other zodiac signs can just see the good in everything and everyone, no matter what… if only this good mood was contagious, am I right?

I am certainly not born to be the kind of person who wakes up in a good mood every day and tries to see the glass as half-full (that’s a lot of work for someone who isn’t used to it!), but always being pessimistic is a lot of work, too.

When you’re constantly in a bad mood, it means you’re always expecting something to go wrong. You have already made it up in your mind to be disappointed in whoever crosses your path, and everything that could go wrong does go wrong because you already know it will.

But having this mindset can actually do more harm than just making you look grumpy and moody all the time. The power of positive thinking is a very powerful thing.

There will be some people out there who don't believe that thinking good thoughts is going to magically put you in a better mood, but it definitely can – as long as you keep at it.

When you train yourself to think optimistically, it can actually change your life for the better (and get rid of that bad mood you're always hauling around).

Think about a day when you were totally on your game – yes, even those in the worst of moods have a good day now and then. This is a day when you were thinking clearly, you were happy, and everything was coming easily to you.

Even without trying, you were in a good mood. When you're on your game, you know exactly what you want and you're able to get it without too much trouble.

When you're off your game, you can still turn it around with positive thinking by putting yourself in a mindset to succeed, even when things don't seem to be going your way. Holding on to a bad mood, a grudge, or negativity is only going to come back to you.

But letting it go and visualizing the good you want to come to you – through positive affirmations, morning mantras, and positive responses to negative experiences – can help you become a happier, healthier person.

Obviously, it takes time to perfect this mindset, but working at it can make a difference, especially for these zodiac signs who are constantly in a bad mood.


CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer, you are the definition of “bad mood” because there is not one minute when you’re not acting moody. Being moody isn’t always a bad thing – sometimes it means you’re just full of emotions – but when it describes you, it can be a bad thing. The better way to describe you would be to say that you’re temperamental, which means that your mood can easily change (and turn negative).

From the moment you wake up in the morning, your mood goes into a tailspin. You’re grumpy that your bed is uncomfortable, you haven’t had enough caffeine in your system yet, and your phone is blowing up with some new craziness. Hey, I get it. I can totally see why you’re always in a bad mood. But unless you pick and choose what deserves your emotional involvement, you’re always going to find something to be mad about.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo, you don’t actively seek out situations that will put you in a bad mood, but when it’s you we’re talking about, it’s kind of hard for your mood NOT to go south. Seeing as you have this need to constantly control things, when you get overwhelmed (or when someone isn’t following your rules), it can put you in a bad mood.

You like controlling the situation as much as possible because it means you get to tell everyone else what to do. It also means you don’t have to hold anyone else but yourself responsible when things go wrong. That said, you can be overly critical of yourself, and when one tiny thing doesn’t go the way you planned… Boom! Serious bad mood (and one that lasts a long time).

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpio, I can sympathize. You have a lot to be angry about. So, even though you might always be in a bad mood, there’s probably a good reason for it… at least, in your mind, there’s a good reason. You are VERY good at expressing your emotions right on your face, so it’s no wonder that people know exactly when to stay away from you. This is especially true when you’re wearing your Resting Bitch Face, too.

Now, don’t take this the wrong way, but you’re generally a negative person. You have a hard time trusting people that aren’t you, so when you’re in a position where you can choose to be optimistic or pessimistic, you opt for pessimism because at least when you’re proven right and something falls apart, you’ll already be in a bad mood to fit the situation.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn, you don’t even try to be in a good mood, but you use it to be more productive. Sure, there are times when you’ll crack a smile – you know, when you’re ecstatic about something – but for the most part, you don’t have time to skip around with a smile plastered on your face. If anything, being so positive and happy all the time is a sign of weakness and you’re not about that life.

You are one of the most cynical zodiac signs out there, which means that you’re always looking for a reason to say “I knew it” when sh*t happens. So, really, your perpetual bad mood is just you already knowing what everyone else needs to figure out. And you don’t see yourself changing your tune anytime soon, either. As long as you can always be in a bad mood and still live your life, you’re set.
