Resentment can kill a relationship.

5 Zodiac Signs Who Repress Resentments In Their Relationships getty

Are you someone who tells your partner everything? Do you tell them when you’re angry, sad, or annoyed? Or, do you repress your feelings, especially those of jealousy and resentment?

For some people, it seems easier to just not share emotions or worries with their partners. They want to avoid conflict if they can, and take the chance that everything will be fine.

But just because you repress your resentments and shove them down, they will still come up at some point.


Many people hide their feelings of resentment in their relationships. And for a select few zodiac signs, it may be a result of their environment.

When people hide resentment and their feelings, it may be because that’s what they observed growing up, what they learned to do on their own. But it could also have to do with their personality in astrology.

When you’re in a relationship, the best thing you can do for yourself and your partner is to be honest with them about your feelings, even if it seems unreasonable. You may think that you’re preventing everyone from getting hurt when you repress resentment, but you’re ultimately hurting everyone.


1. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Many Libras want to avoid as much conflict as possible, especially with their partners, so they'll repress their resentments until they get too much for Libra. Then, they get upset.

This doesn't happen that often, but when it does watch out. If there's a build-up of emotions, when those emotions finally come out, it's explosive. Libras don't like feeling out of balance and not in control, but that's exactly what happens when they haven't dealt with their emotions.

2. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces don't want to hurt someone or make them feel bad, so they'll repress their resentment. These resentments usually begin when Pisces says yes to something they really didn't want to do. They are exceedingly kind people and it's challenging for them to say no.

They're always compassionate and helpful, even when it goes against their own best interests. Pisces need to have boundaries they can enforce rather than resenting their partner for asking them to do something they didn't want to do, and then resenting themselves for doing it.

3. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorns tend to repress their resentment by keeping busy all the time. It's a great way to avoid dealing with their own issues. Capricorns will make sure their partner's needs are taken care of while forgetting their own.

Capricorn's partner may not even ask them to do something and may have no idea of this resentment. If Capricorn takes on too much, they may find themselves even more resentful, and the pattern will continue until they stop it.

4. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

No one likes being rejected, but Taurus intensely hates it. Taureans tend to make a habit of repressing their anger and pain so they don't come off as difficult, angry, or weak. They want to be strong for their partners and may not believe that expressing their emotions is a sign of strength.

It's not unlikely for a Taurus to be somewhat possessive in their relationships, which can lead to jealousy and resentment that they'll try to hold in. They think if they're patient enough, their resentment will just disappear.

5. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

In every relationship, there are little things that bother us, and sometimes those little things morph into bigger issues. Instead of expressing them, Virgos tend to repress them. These issues are still there, so instead of dealing directly with them, Virgo may find other things to be critical about while avoiding working on the bigger issues that affect their relationship.

Virgo's repressed emotions need an outlet and may come out as criticism, complaints, or frustration. They can be judgmental, even with their partners, and that can cause arguments and tension.
