The Most Savage Zodiac Signs — And The Meanest Thing They Do To Others

There are no consequences for them.

The Most Ruthless Zodiac Signs Ranked From Most To Least, According To Astrology Getty

We like to think of ourselves and of humanity, in general, as civilized. Society is something we designed; we did it to create some semblance of order. Laws are put into place, and for the good of all, we obey them. And when we don't, we suffer the consequences.

Civilization requires one thing: That we subdue our animal nature for the purpose of "getting along."

We've learned that we are way too volatile and insane to merely walk the earth; if left to our own natural ways, we'd just kill each other, all day, all night. Alas, we are now civilized, but below the surface, we are indeed savage.


Every zodiac sign in astrology has a tendency to act without consequences.

But who are the most ruthless zodiac signs, and how do they earn that title?

It’s common knowledge that Scorpios are the ultimate savages, but they aren’t the only signs to be wary of. Aries and Leo are some of the most violent zodiac signs, while Aries naturally takes the cake for the angriest sign.

But Aries is also just an overall badass, which can be a good and bad thing. Scorpio is known to act more evil than all of the signs, Gemini earns the title for the wildest zodiac sign, and Aries is right there with them as the craziest zodiac sign.


While we might not actually be out there murdering people, we are participating in any number of vicious and cruel acts. We really are capable of the worst, and depending on who we are and how far we're willing to take our savage nature, we let our bestial side out to play in everyday life.

No zodiac sign is a perfect angel, but some are ruthless in nature. Learn more about what to watch out for with each zodiac sign, as well as their most toxic traits.

Here are the most ruthless zodiac signs in astrology, ranked from most to least savage.

1. Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

These control freaks are relentless and they somehow believe they're always right, so when they decide to get in your life, like a bad smell, they don't stop until you take your own life.

Scorpio's M.O. is oppressive bossiness. They either control you, or you pay the price for your freedom.

Impulsive meanness is the name of the game for Leo. Out of nowhere, Leo will suddenly deliver an insult to you that is so out of line, so harsh and violent, that you'll actually fear for your life.


Leo is the meanest of the signs, and they enjoy throwing that irresponsibility around.

8. Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorns are savage letter-writers. It's rare to be involved with a Capricorn and have it last without hearing from them... in the form of a well-written letter made up of pure, loathsome insults.

Capricorn enjoys stabbing you with words, and if you cry, it's a jubilant time for them because they are by far the most sadistic zodiac sign.

9. Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo's snarky attitude makes them the most sarcastic zodiac sign. Face it: Virgo already hates you, but when they put their mind to it, if you so much as rub them the wrong way, they will attack you so viciously that you'll end up wondering if perhaps you really are terrible.


Virgo has no tolerance for those they hate — and they hate everybody.

12. Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Forgiving and forgetting — they just don't do it. You could beg for forgiveness for the simplest of things, and once Cancer decides you're out, it's permanent and harsh.
