The 5 Grumpiest Zodiac Signs.

The word grumpy seems to be reserved for old men. But the fact is, anyone can be grouchy and there really is no other word that better expresses that irritable and bad-tempered attitude.

Using astrology to guide us, it's clear there are certain grouchy zodiac signs who seem to be unhappy. Our personalities and the way we react to things (grumpy, crabby, or growly) are influenced by the stars

Grouchiness is a state of being — a reaction and a mood — but it’s not set in stone. You can be grouchy one minute and perfectly fine the next, and having what you need and want is helpful in changing your unpleasant attitude.

We all need to get to the point where someone’s grouchiness doesn’t affect our mood. Your strategy could be to simply ignore the grump, or maybe you know what they need and you sure it’s always available.

1. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorns are grouchy because once they're in a grumpy mood, it's difficult to get them out of it, no matter how much they try. Their grouchy mood escalates at the slightest provocation.

Capricorns will moan about everything they don't like or things that have gone wrong in their lives. The good thing is that while their grouchy mood may seem as if it's going to last forever, it will eventually end and they'll be back to their kind, helpful selves.

2. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces can be extremely grouchy. If their art or project isn't going well or they don't think they're getting the appreciation they deserve, the grumpiness will appear before your eyes.

Pisces are likely grouchy because they can be oversensitive, and the littlest slights and mistakes can rub them the wrong way. They will either express their grumpiness or just zone out and go to the happy place in their head.

3. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

A Virgo will get extra grouchy if things aren't done the way they like or if their expertise is challenged in any way. Many Virgos don't express their grumpiness in the usual ways, such as acting put out at the simplest suggestions. No, when Virgos get grouchy, they get very judgmental, somewhat surly, and mean.

All you can do is pray that their grouchy mood passes, and they get back to being the kind Virgo we all know and love.

4. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

When Scorpio makes a mistake or fails hard at something, they get moody. They're also extremely sensitive, and when they're hurt or mad at themselves it makes them bad-tempered, irritable, and impatient.

They're likely to interrupt people, hurry them along, and be unpleasant to everyone around. When a Scorpio is a grouch, this is the time when grudges are formed, and acts of revenge are planned. It's not a far hop from grumpy to mad for them.

5. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

It's no secret that Taurus is one of the most stubborn zodiac signs, but do you know that this stubbornness can be expressed through grumpiness? If a Taurus is refusing to compromise and is stubbornly fixated on an idea, it will cause them to be very testy.

They don't like to be proven wrong, and they don't like it when they don't feel respected. Taurus will stew in their bad feelings and get grouchier as each minute passes.
