Why do people stab each other in the back?

Is there a real reason why a zodiac sign would choose to stab another sign in the back or is it simply the easier move for that zodiac sign? For most of us, choosing to react to someone stabbing you in the back is a lot easier than thinking about what to do next before acting.

When someone betrays you, the last thing you want to do is take a step back and think about your next move, am I right?

I mean, unless getting revenge when the other person least expects it is your thing, we tend to react to back-stabbing right away.

This usually means a lot of hateful comments or an icy-cold shoulder, but we can all agree that no one is happy once they’ve found out that they’ve been stabbed in the back.

So, how do you deal with being stabbed in the back by someone you thought you could trust? Is it as simple as cutting them out of your life for good?

Unfortunately, no, it’s not that easy, simply because we’re not always so lucky to get ourselves out of situation where we no longer have to see our backstabber.

So, lashing out or getting revenge isn’t always the best plan. One thing you can do is redirect that anger and frustration into something healthier and more creative.

Something to get your mind off of your backstabber, like kickboxing or a venting session with your BFFs always helps – and it cuts down on the possibility of you taking it out on your backstabber at an inappropriate time… trust me, the risk isn’t worth it.

That said, it’s important to think about your next move, too. If you work with someone who has stabbed you in the back, is there a way to reduce the time you spend around them?

If they used to be a close friend of yours, maybe you want to say your peace before cutting them out of your life for good.

Even though it hurts to be stabbed in the back by someone you respected or trusted, it’s important to be honest with yourself and them, rather than try to sweep your feelings about the situation under the rug.

Of course, it also helps to avoid certain zodiac signs because of their reputation as backstabbers (just kidding).

Here are the backstabbing zodiac signs most likely to ruin your friendship, according to astrology.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries can be a very loyal zodiac sign, but when it comes to deciding to put herself first or her friends, she’s more likely to stab you in the back for her own benefit than stick to her loyalties. Don’t get her wrong, she IS a great friend, but as the first sign of the zodiac, she’s used to being number one.

Aries is a very advantageous zodiac sign. This means that, when an opportunity arises for her to get ahead in life, she’s bound to take it without a second thought. If that means she has to stab a few backs to get what she wants, so be it!

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

If any zodiac sign is most likely to stab you in the back without batting an eye, it’s Gemini. She’s not the twins (AKA two-faced) of the zodiac for nothing, after all! I know, I know – it’s harsh, but it’s honest. Gemini is great at being an actor – in other words, she’s great at putting up a front until she gets her way.

Whether you’re nice to Gemini or you’re her number one enemy, nothing is going to stand in her way to get what she wants. She has absolutely no reservations about acting like your best friend to get ahead in life, only to turn around and stab you in the back when she gets a chance.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Let’s get this out of the way first: Leo is a great friend (and person). But she’s also a complete opportunist. Give her even an inch to get ahead, and she’s going to take the opportunity and run with it. Is that a bad thing? Not at all! We only wish we could be as cutthroat as Leo at times. But when an opportunity for success comes along, does that mean Leo is going to take into account what her friends think first? Also, no.

As a fire sign, Leo can be very aggressive and assertive. She knows what it takes to be number one in life, and she isn’t afraid to step on people when climbing the ladder of success. This doesn’t mean she can’t also be a great mentor and leader, but she can also stab you in the back.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpio has mystery and intrigue on her side, so it’s best to be wary of who she really is. Unless you’re in her inner circle, you have almost no chance of knowing exactly what she’s capable of. Even those who think they know her can be surprised when she shows her true colors.

Scorpio can be a very loyal friend, but she also has no hang-ups about stabbing you in the back – especially if she’s convinced herself that it’s a good idea. Scorpio can be very secretive and manipulative. If she feels like she can finesse you into believing that she’s innocent, just to swoop in and stab you in the back later, she’s likely to do just that.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius can be a great friend… if it’s convenient for her. She likes being around people who make her life easier or more exciting. But when she comes across people who are more exciting or interesting, she has no problem ditching you for them.

Sagittarius will stab you in the back by being disloyal or breaking her promises to you. She can be flaky, yes, but she also just wants to have fun in life. It sounds like a shallow excuse to be a backstabber, but Sagittarius doesn’t really have time to dwell on her misgivings. Not the greatest excuse, but that’s Sagittarius for you.
