6 Zodiac Signs With The Biggest Tempers

There's no calming them down.

Nothing like walking on eggshells around that friend with the really bad temper. Oh, how they truly do control the environment. We rarely think of zodiac signs with bad tempers as manipulative, but that's just what they are.

Astrology is great at delving into our personality traits, and horoscopes can give us a daily reminder to change our bad habits, but to be known as the one who is so puffed up with ego and "sensitivity" is to be known as the person who stomps their feet to get their way. Oh, poor baby. Better throw a tantrum to make sure everyone on earth knows you're not going to take it!


People with the biggest tempers usually think of themselves as totally justified in their massive displays of indignant reaction. They believe that showing their temper is akin to showing fang, or claw. "See how tough and murderous I am! I'm the worst there is and I won't take your baloney for nothing!"

Showing aggression in the form of a bad temper is not only manipulative and annoying, it's a true sign of weakness. It's basically a flag that lets everyone around you know that your foundation can be rocked very easily. How ironic — bad tempered people think they can "roar" and everyone will cower, yet that fit-throwing "roar" really comes off as a baby cry.


Showing temper is like shouting at the top of your lungs, "Mommy my diaper is poopy!" So strong. So sophisticated. And the zodiac makes identifying potential hot heads very easy for us. Who are the top 6 zodiac signs with bad tempers who are complete tantrum-throwing egomaniacs?

1. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

I tremble to think of how many hissy fits I've seen over the years made possible thanks to the efforts of Aries friends and family members. Oh, let me tell you: nobody goes into spasm of ego-induced defensive rage like Aries.


They are born indignant and should anything in their lives even slightly get in their way of... whatever... they will blow all over the town. When Aries can't control their temper (they never do), their fiery wrath will burn you right down, and your little dog too.

2. LEO (July 23 - August 22)



While Leo lets everyone in the place know that they are mad, indignant, hurt, upset and/or intolerant, they are simultaneously looking in the mirror while they do it. Leo likes to blurt and shout; they like to hear the sound of their own voices.

So when it's major tantrum time, they like to make a real superstar show of it. You won't know whether to applaud when they're finished, or kill yourself just to get away from them.

3. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)



Rounding out the fire signs with hysteria and insanity are the Sagittarians and their theatrical show of intolerance towards whatever it is that pisses them off. Sags don't take things lightly, though they'd love you to believe it's all easy-breezy-beautiful with them.

Truth is, it is E-B-B with them until you tick them off. Then be prepared to get served in a big, bad, annoying way — straight from the horse's mouth.

4. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)



Never a fun sign to begin with, this sign is perhaps the most self-centered of them all ,and when it comes to showing their "magnificent" temper, they like to make sure it reads as terrifying and perhaps even deadly.

Yeah, Scorpio is only really happy when they're living the full "I'm a scary killer, fear me" routine, and to prove their point, they like to throw gigantic temper tantrums just so you know your place. Which is, of course, anywhere where there are no Scorpios.

5. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)



Eek, Virgo sure does hate... everything. Whether they're judging you severely and imagining your death, or they're simply overturning a dinner table in a restaurant, you can rely on Virgo to bring the tension and anxiety party wherever they go.

Virgo is another of the signs who love to perform their hate for you, or whomever, and sometimes they actually forget what they are all fired up about because they get so into hearing their own selves shout.

6. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Not a pretty tantrum thrower, oh no. Out of nowhere, Capricorn will tap into the brain trust and make that executive decision on whether or not they should break out the big guns and run you the hell over.

Tempers are a-flarin' with this sign, and while they are usually fairly composed, let's just redefine composure as raw hate gone repressed for too long. Caps are live wires when it comes to temper. One touch and you may just get fried.
