Mood swings seem to be a part of life, though we can all agree that some of the folks we know tend to take "mood swing" to an entirely new level. In fact, moody people, especially specific moody zodiac signs, can be a real pain in the tush.

What's worse is when we grow accustomed to their mood swings and we begin to anticipate them, making the situation all about them, from the get-go. As you'll learn with astrology and the stars, some personalities are prone to moodiness, stress, and dejection. It's almost a kind of politeness to call it a mood swing, when a person's moody behavior can actually be a complete takeover, holding everyone around them hostage. 


Moody people are the ultimate in passive-aggressive behavior. Their moods dominate the environment, and the moody one doesn't even have to speak; in fact, the less talk the better as it enhances the mood that's being shared with everyone.

Being with a moody person is like being with someone who has chronic flatulence and simply cannot help but pollute their immediate environment with the stench of whatever is inside them.


1. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

You're the kind who surprises people with your bad moods and self-pity mega-parties. My goodness, you certainly do feel sorry for yourself, Gemini. You make a lifestyle out of licking your endless wounds, don't you?

There's just so much failure you can acquire before you start to implode, and that's how it goes with you and your moods: You're always on the verge of crying your eyes out, and you tend to take that out on those around you. Oh, you won't talk or share — that would be too intimate.

So, instead, you just like to bring with you a hovering black cloud of dread, wherever you go. It's a drag being with you, Gemini.

2. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Here's where passive-aggressive takes on new meaning. If you're a Virgo, you know how to manipulate your environment, and that is by sulking, moaning, pouting, and letting everyone around you know that you're basically disappointed by all things.

You like to pass the buck and make others think they are responsible for your happiness, and should your friends and family not give you what you need, you make them know they are worthless to you. Your mood is akin to martial law: those around you must do what you say, or suffer the consequences.

3. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

You tend to raise the bar on everything you do, whether it's good, bad or neutral, and because of that, even your moods tend to become excessive. If you sense you are not being treated fairly, your mood goes very dark and scathing.


You do not hold back when you're in a dark mood, and you always come to regret what you've said afterwards, though that's not a lesson you learn for the future, as you are always quick to share what's on your mind if your dark mood prompts you to.

4. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

The thing that keeps you so confident and cool is also the thing that allows you to fly off the handle and pour your bad mood all over anyone, if the mood hits you. You are a professional mood-swinging monster, and because you are often times in a position of authority, your people have to deal with your BS on a continuous basis.

As one of the moodiest signs there is, you really take advantage of others, mainly because those who work for you are terrified of you, as well as terrified to lose their jobs because of you. People will kiss your butt when you're in your dark mood, and we all know how unfair that really is, don't we, Capricorn?

5. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

You are someone who is very accustomed to lying, and part of your great lie is to convince people that you're the easy-going, well-balanced Libra — the person everyone believes is steady and even-keeled. Until, of course, your foul mood kicks in, and then you're the first person on line to do the hurting of others.

When your mood kicks in, all you want is blood; you exist to hurt others... passive-aggressively. You don't tell anyone, ever, that you want to hurt them, you simply go ahead and stink up everyone's life with your oppressive mood and your pain-inflicting opinions.

6. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

You forget that your crappy mood affects those around you — oh no, you didn't forget, you just didn't care. And that's the Taurus way. You are somewhat of a slave to your emotions, and you let them boss you around, which makes you moody and irrational at times.

Your feeling towards others who can't deal with you: Buh bye, don't let the door hit you on the way out. You're a moody mofo, but you also don't care what people think of it.
