5 Zodiac Signs Who Never Forget

There are a lot of things that go into remembering. If you don't want to forget, there needs to be something that stands out to you, even if it’s small. But when you've been wronged, that's when not forgetting becomes important.

If we consider astrology a guide, we get a better sense of our personality traits. Because there are some zodiac signs who never forget, even when they want to.

If something horrible and tragic happened to you or someone you loved, it would be the last thing you’d want to remember. But shocking, life-altering and unfair events and actions are almost always impossible to forget.

Sometimes, people hang on to slights, injustices, and bullying on purpose. They don’t want to forget because they don’t want to forgive.

When you hang on to a negative memory, it'll grow in toxicity. People tell you to let it go — and you want to — but somehow you just can’t. So, you try to replace it with a better memory — a good one that you never want to forget. But bad memory stays sharp and the good one starts to fade.

And for these mindful zodiac signs, they never, ever forget.

1. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpios never forget when someone betrayed them or did them wrong. In fact, Scorpios can be quite obsessive when it comes to feelings of betrayal or revenge.

They can hold on to something so tightly that every time they think about it, the pain associated with it feels a little sharper. Time may heal all wounds for most people, but not for Scorpio — they're going to have to find their own way to heal.

2. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taureans are thoughtful, so when something catches their attention and registers with them, they'll remember it long after other people would have forgotten. Maybe this is why Taurus tends to be cautious, especially about who they confide in and who they trust.

They remember their mistakes, and they're not likely to repeat them. If you harmed Taurus in some way, they'll remember and nurse their grudge for a long time.

3. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancers tend to remember how they felt during a certain time and that emotion helps to bring forth other details. They have great recall where their relationships are concerned.

Love can make Cancers possessive since they rarely forget the good times or how amazing it felt. The negative aspects of their ex may fade into the background, but they will never forget how amazing it made them feel.

4. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgos never forget facts and answers; they've got big brains and they know how to use them. It's rare for a Virgo to forget something in a field that they're interested in, and if they do forget, they will just re-learn it and get even more information.

Virgos retain information better than any other zodiac sign, and they're usually happy to show off their knowledge. You do not want them to be your opponent in a trivia contest or intellectual challenge.

5. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorns are good at remembering important dates and tasks. If they promised to do something — such as water your plants or pick you up after your dental surgery — you won't have to remind them because they'll remember.

Capricorns are dependable, responsible, and never forget. If the memory is something difficult, they will do their best to process and make peace with it. They do have the ability to forgive, even if they can't forget.
