What Makes The Zodiac Signs Most Jealous

Their jealousy turns to resentment.

Ah, the little green monster who raises its nasty head at all the wrong times: jealousy. I've heard people say, "I don't do jealousy." I've heard people also say, "Jealousy is a wasted emotion." Whatever it is that jealousy brings up in any particular individual, the one thing we can all agree on is that it's negative and destructive.

In astrology, no one WANTS to be one of the jealous zodiac signs, and as much as we all love to condemn the one who becomes jealous for their inability to go with the flow, the truth is, people get jealous for whatever reasons. We like to automatically stamp these folks as neurotic and insecure, but seriously, who isn't neurotic and insecure? Especially when their security is threatened.


If your partner is cheating on you, depending on your temperament, you could go one of several ways. Some people cannot stand for any kind of infidelity in a partner — even if they catch them looking at another person with lust in their heart, they flip out. If they could police another person's thoughts, they would.


Jealousy is like taking an already crappy situation and insuring it gets emotionally worse. So, when it comes to how to make the zodiac signs, what does the trick? Let's take a look-see.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries gets very jealous over physical appearances. They are conscious of looking good at all times, but if they spot someone better looking, they cringe with jealousy and make it their point to look even better than said person.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus wants to be the boss, and if attentions scatter and leave them without a focused audience, they will throw tantrums until all eyes are back on them. They are highly jealous of attention taken away from them.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini gets jealous easily, but doesn't show it until it's too late. They do not like when their "stuff" is passed over for someone else. Gemini has self-confidence, and when they are not appreciated, they become jealous of whomever is getting that appreciation.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Material things and the possession of them is what floats Cancer's boat, so when you end up with more toys than your Cancer friend does, expect the green monster to show up for a jealousy show-down.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Don't look at anyone else — not while Leo is in the room. They just won't understand it. They can't get the idea that you'd care to even look at another person, and if you do, they will fly into hysterics of jealousy. Leo is the most jealous of the signs.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo is jealous of everything and everybody, and this plays out as hate for the world, and most of all, for themselves. If you acquire a precious item, Virgo will be there coveting it for all its worth, while meanwhile praying for your early demise so they can take it away from you.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Another "jealous of everyone" zodiac sign, Libra transmutes their jealousy into condescending behavior. No one puts others down as much as Libra does, and this is because everything threatens this sign, reflecting back to them what they believe they do not have.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Jealousy and sadism go hand in hand here with Scorpio, but they are able to at least turn their burning jealousy into productivity. The Scorpio way always has them taking their worst trait and constructing it into something devilishly awful, and hopefully painful, for you.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

It's not that they're not jealous — they are — but it takes a very long time to understand that Sagittarius jealousy looks more like you being ignored and ghosted ad infinitum. Sag gets jealous and then disappears.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn does feel jealousy, but they are so much more interested in moving along than in dwelling on things or people that arouse anger or jealousy within them. Jealous, yes, but not terribly so.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

The jealousy that appeals to Aquarians the most is the kind they can make you feel. They love to flaunt what they believe you want, and they are thrilled to hurt you if they must. They don't feel jealousy, but they feel the thrill of making you jealous and they go for it with all the gusto they can muster up.

PISCES (February 19 - March 10)

The second-most jealous zodiac sign, Pisces lives and thrives in a state of neurotic jealousy. Whether it's about love, romance, body image, intelligence — it doesn't matter. Pisces believe you have what they don't, and they live in a constant state of jealousy.
