The Most Absurd Thing Each Zodiac Sign Does

It seems ridiculous to others but makes sense to you.

Everyone does strange, illogical, and inappropriate things, and we don’t even consider the idea that other people might find them bizarre. It’s all part of the absurdity of life.

Sometimes we have motivation for the strange things we do, and sometimes we're not even aware we're doing them. With astrology, the most absurd thing each zodiac sign does really depends on personality and your birth chart. If you enjoy dancing around your house wearing only your underwear and a smile, it may because your sign influenced you to do it.


The weird, absurd, and sometimes senseless things we do make us different from other people and makes us a little more interesting. What you might think of as amusing or funny may appear to someone else as wildly unreasonable or ridiculous.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries will get inebriated and reach out to an ex, even if Aries is in a happy relationship. Maybe they feel they can only ask for answers when they're not in control or they need the attention.


You could blame it on butt-dialing, but how many times can you pass off your inappropriate reaching out? Aries are impulsive, and sometimes they want to find out if their ex really loved them or if they still think about them.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus can't stop touching stuff — their stuff, their friend's stuff, and even their neighbors' stuff. They love feeling the weight, texture, and shape of things.

They know that people don't want them touching their possessions, but Taurus can't resist. It's almost a fetish for them and it can be a bit arousing too.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini will make strange and random comments on social media — not just to their friends, but to celebrities and strangers. They aren't trolling and they're not saying anything mean, just some inappropriate jokes only they understand and/or think are funny.

Sometimes, Geminis make it seem as if they aren't a fan but a friend, even though the celebrity has never met them.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancers can get upset immediately without provocation. It's like one minute they're laughing and having a good time, and the next they're crying with such force that their whole body is involved. It's like a flash flood of emotion.


You don't know what motivated it to start and what caused it to end. All you know is that it happened and that it was scary to observe.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leos will make sure that everybody knows it's their birthday, even if it's not an appropriate time or place. It's not unlike a Leo to hijack an event like a housewarming party, bring a cake, and make everyone sing happy birthday to them.

You know the kind of person who would rather the entire restaurant not acknowledge their birthday? That's not Leo. They want as much attention as possible and to be celebrated by everyone.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgos can be absurd in the way they organize things and how they tend to have a mini freak out if something is moved or put back in the wrong order. They can spend a very enjoyable time organizing their books or spices. However, if their sense of order is compromised or not respected, they won't take it lightly.

Virgos like to be able to know that if they go looking for their hammer, it's going to be right where they left it.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libras can be weirdly superstitious. It's not that they're scared of black cats or broken mirrors, but if they can avoid walking underneath a mirror or opening up an umbrella inside, they will.


It's not unlikely they will knock on wood to prevent something bad from happening or will not schedule something important on Friday the 13th. They don't think they're superstitious, just careful.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpios are well-versed in the art of revenge, and sometimes their desire for revenge can make them do wildly unreasonable and inappropriate things: making someone believe there's something wrong with their car (without actually doing anything to the car), or signing them up for a group they'd usually never join so the person gets a ton of annoying emails.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarians will bring strange things along with them on their trips. It could be a memento from their childhood, a gift from their partner, or something that's meaningful to them that makes no sense, as it just takes up space and isn't useful in the least.

Sagittarius has their reasons. It's just that those reasons are difficult to understand.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorns can get lost easily and refuse to ask for directions. It doesn't matter how great their GPS is or how many times they've made a trip; Capricorn will still manage to get lost.


They'll drive around, sometimes for long periods of time, and want to figure it out for themselves. They have a lot of pride and it makes them angry with themselves if they have to depend on someone's help to get where they're going.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius loves to laugh at their own jokes, even if no one understands what they're talking about. They don't need to be telling a joke to another person; they get happy making themselves laugh, which is good because sometimes their humor goes right over other people's heads.


If you find Aquarius in a room by themselves, laughing their heads off, don't be alarmed; they are just very good at amusing themselves.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces talk to the animals; they talk to their pets, to the dogs they met on their walks, their friend's pets, and even animals in shelters or pet stores. It's unclear if the animals answer back to Pisces, but even if they don't, that doesn't stop them from having a whole conversation with them.

Pisces sometimes feels more comfortable speaking to animals than they do humans.
