6 Zodiac Signs Who Give Off Negative Energy
Zodiac

Negative energy can be contagious.

Are you going through a cycle of negative energy, or are you someone who always sees things in a negative light? We all have a dark side, but for some people, especially when you take astrology into account, their negative energy is a constant. 

Negative energy, just like positive energy, can be passed from one person to another, and it can grow along the way. So it only makes sense that the negative zodiac signs give off this type of energy, even if that’s not their intention.

If you aren’t sure that you’re giving off negative energy, there are some ways to tell. If you often feel angry or on edge, and aren’t expressing these emotions to other people, you’re probably giving off some major negative vibes.

Sometimes, negative energy manifests as feelings of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness. When you’re feeling any kind of negative emotion, it’s a good idea to deal with it rather than ignore it; when negative emotions are left alone they can be harmful to our physical and mental health.

Certain behaviors, such as harsh competitiveness, playing the blame-game, and acting impulsively, can indicate negative energy. The best thing you can do for yourself and the people in your life is to make a conscious effort clear that energy,

Our thinking does affect our reality, so if you’re always looking on the downside of things, expecting disaster around every corner, it’s likely you’ll be surrounded by negativity. On the other hand, if you’re optimistic, learn from your mistakes, and expect joy, you’ll feel happier and have a more positive energy.

1. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpios feel things very intensely, and there are times when they have difficulty controlling their feelings. It's as if their emotions are right on the surface and any little thing can set off an explosion.

Their negative energy is clear by their mood swings and their inability to stay calm when everything is going wrong

2. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

When Capricorn is giving off negative energy, they tend to find interacting with people very tiring and difficult. This is because Capricorn is so wrapped up in their own drama and negative feelings that they don't have the energy to be there for someone else.

3. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer's negative energy is self-directed, and they tend to think of themselves of not being worthy of good things happening. They wonder if they'll ever be happy or successful.

When Cancers are giving off negative energy, they may question the actions they took and their responsibility for a relationship gone bad.

4. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

When Pisces are caught up in a negative energy cycle, they tend to want to be by themselves and limit interactions with loved ones. Being by one's self isn't necessarily a bad thing, but when it goes on for an extended amount of time, it's not healthy.

5. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

We know that Virgos tend to be self-critical, but when they're in a negative energy cycle, their critical eye can be focused on other people as well as themselves. Virgos can be hypercritical and lash out, which isn't good for anybody.

If they can recognize what they're doing, they will be able to stop engaging in unhelpful negative thoughts; if not, they may keep going and damage not just their self-esteem but their relationships as well.

6. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

When Aquarius gets in a negative energy cycle, they tend to pass it off as being "realistic" and "seeing things as they are." They don't seem to understand that negative energy is self-perpetuating and will keep going and feeding off itself.

In other words, Aquarians get very cynical and can behave in a toxic way.
