6 Most Unstable Zodiac Signs, According To Astrology

Not everyone was born with Dalai Lama-like patience. Our Zen tends to diminish rapidly when we come into close contact with stress-related actions. In other words, we are all mental cases, time bombs waiting to explode. Well, not all of us, but some.

When we are unstable, the state of our mental health is iffy. Sometimes I, myself, feel like a walking nervous breakdown, and then on other days, I know myself to be sturdy, stable, clearheaded and rational. I've seen others who are clearly unstable; they fly off into tantrums and end up ruining everything they've worked so hard to achieve.

And it's these unstable zodiac signs in astrology who try to hold it together as best as they can, but ultimately fail.

When we are most unstable, we can be very obvious. We don't act normally; in fact, being unstable looks quite mad.

This is where we need help and support. Balance is the only thing that allows us to live normal, healthy lives, so when we find ourselves on the verge of instability, we owe it to ourselves to reach out for help.

So, who are the most unstable signs of the zodiac?

1. Taurus (April 20 - May 20) 

"Strong as bull" doesn't necessarily imply stability, it just means that, in the case of Taurus, their strength doesn't balance out their need to kick things over and destroy them — like the bull in the china shop.

They are clumsy in life, and mentally they are even worse; they have very short triggers and if they are either insulted or offended, they tend to go ballistic. They are highly unstable and will blow up like noxious gas if given the chance.

2. Libra (September 23 - October 22)

The irony of Libra is that it is represented by the scales of balance. One would automatically think they are well-balanced people. That's where we'd be wrong. Libra has a tendency to be very polarized; in fact, rarely are they ever practical or well balanced.

Libra is another of the intelligent signs; they're very smart with subjects they know something about, but if they are presented with a topic they are unsure of, they become visibly upset and nervous. Libra's nervousness is notorious — a truly unstable sign.

3. Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer would like to think of themselves as some kind of risen, enlightened being, but scratch that façade and you'll find a scared child, unable to handle the world as it is.

Cancer is a frightened sign; they crave routine and sameness and when suddenly a change is demanded of them, they retreat into a thumb-sucking state of unresponsiveness. They cannot be relied upon as they are as unstable as they come.

4. Aries (March 21 - April 19)

If you've ever been to a restaurant with a disgruntled Aries who has just thrown the table and all of its contents over, while screaming and running out of the restaurant, then you know all about how unstable Aries is. It's true.

Attribute it to their high intelligence. Maybe they can't take all that knowledge rattling around in their brains. Aries is a great sign, but they are frantic, unbalanced, insane, and over-the-top unstable.

5. Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini is lucky to get out of bed in the morning, as this is not natural to them. Were they left to their own devices, they'd spend all day, every day in bed, scrolling Amazon, avoiding relationships and real-life situations.

When Gemini is confronted, they back off, leaving friends and family to wonder what is going on. They are gaslighting liars of the first degree and they lie without conscience. They are unstable, anti-social, and generally dangerous to be involved with on any level.

6. Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius is as unstable as they get, they just don't know it. This loner has spent a little too much time in their mind, and so, when presented with a radical idea that takes place in the real world, not in their mind, they freak out and have no idea what to do with it.

Sagittarius cannot handle reality, which means they avoid reality as much as possible. Their lives are heavy with fantasy and very little reality, which makes them very unstable and shaky.
