6 Zodiac Signs Who Are Total Brats In Their Relationships. getty

Are you one of the bratty zodiac signs who tries to control your partner, throws temper tantrums, and is moody and demanding? If you are, could it have something to do with astrology?

You might be difficult when out in the world, but sweet and considerate with your partner. Or, it could go the other way around. Sometimes when we feel comfortable with someone, we like to test how much we can get away with.


Although being a brat is childish behavior, adults seem to act this way, no matter their gender. Bratty behavior can feel like you’re pushing the boundaries. If your partner truly loves you, they should love you even when you’re being impossible, right?

Well, one of the problems of being a brat is that it can backfire. There’s only so much moodiness, controlling, and bad behavior that someone can tolerate. It takes a wealth of compassion, empathy, and caring to accept someone being a brat, and not everyone has those qualities.

Sometimes we act like brats because we’re not getting the attention we deserve, or we feel unappreciated and don’t know how to get what we need from our partner. Other times, being a brat is a part of our personality, and if our partner can’t handle it, we need to decide whether it’s worth it to change.


1. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancers are emotional and sometimes they take out their feelings on their partner. If Cancer doesn't feel like they're being heard or getting the attention they need, they'll act out.

They can be clingy until they get tired of it and then push their partner away, leaving them confused and unsure about what to do next. Cancers are so sensitive that it can be hard to tell what set them off in the first place, and what they need to calm down.

2. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpios are another sign who get hurt from slights and negative treatment. They may become resentful but refuse to explain why they're unhappy with their partner's behavior. They may also take their frustrations out on their partner, and no matter what their partner does to appease them, it won't be enough.

If Scorpio's partner does something they dislike, this zodiac sign may break up with them before hearing their partner's reasons or side of the story. They'll demand things from their partner that they're unable to give.

3. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

As we know, Aries are many things, but patient isn't one of them. They're impulsive and will sometimes just blurt out the meanest things to their partner. They may feel bad about what they said almost immediately, but they can't take it back once they've said it.


Like a brat, Aries can be stubborn, and when they don't get their way, they may pout. They are sensitive about their own feelings but can forget to take their partner's into consideration.

4. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Geminis can get bored easily and that's true when they're in a relationship. They get impatient with their partners and then get frustrated if they feel they're taking too much time to respond to what Gemini asked of them.

When there's a problem in the relationship, Gemini may accuse their partner of not trying hard enough or caring. They may nag, complain, and treat their partner like a child in order to manipulate them.

5. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

When Taurus is frustrated, they may cause a scene with their partner out in public and then when walk away without even trying to find a solution. When their partner accuses Taurus of being insensitive or acting bizarre, they will turn it around on their partner. 

There are times when a Taurus' partner tries to express their feelings, but Taurus shuts them down. This individual tends to believe they're always right, and if their partner doesn't agree with them, they're clearly in the wrong.

6. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

When Pisces doesn't get their way, they may pout or act like they're a victim. It doesn't always work and can make things worse. It's not unlike Pisces to get upset and make a bunch of noise by slamming some doors, punching the walls, and crying loudly because they want their partner to know how hurt they are.

They sometimes may withhold sex to get what they want, or they may stop making an effort in their appearance to let their partner know they don't feel appreciated.
