6 Fierce Zodiac Signs Who Clap Back At Their Haters, According To Astrology

What does it mean to clap back? Clapping back means to quickly respond to negative comments, critical remarks, shade, or unfair treatment. It’s a fierce comeback and it’s a way to destroy the person it’s aimed at.

When you clap back, you’re confident, assertive, and not afraid to be in someone’s face. You’ve got pride and you’re not going to let someone try to make you feel less than.

But who are the fierce zodiac signs in astrology who clap back?

These are the zodiac signs who refuse to bite their tongue. People who clap back are going to say what needs to be said, and you’re going to say it in such a way that it makes an impact. You’re always ready to make a statement, and the kinds of statements you make don’t go unnoticed.

Much of clapping back happens on social media. Someone slams you for something, then you get on Twitter and you clap back, making them sorry they ever tried to bring you down. When you clap back, you always have a target because you’re responding to something that was aimed at you.

There are some insults and negative comments that will only grow in significance if you don’t react to them, so you need to shut them down with style.

1. Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Aries is never going to wait and think about things before they react to a negative remark; they're going to clap back immediately. They're also not going to censor themselves in any way.

Aries will say whatever comes into their head first, and if it's harsh, they'll deal with it later. Aries don't shy away from confrontation, especially if they think they're being treated unfairly or someone is deliberately being mean.

2. Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

When Aquarius claps back, they're going to do it in the most creative and unpredictable way possible. Their clap back won't be coming from an emotional place but from a cerebral one.

Aquarians are stubborn and determined, so if they don't get the reaction they want, they'll keep clapping back until they do. They don't do anything halfway or from a safe place — it's all or nothing with them.

3. Leo (July 23 - August 22)

Leos clap back as a way to stand up for themselves and for others. They're energetic and kind, so it doesn't matter how much they have to do. When it comes to having someone's back or making sure they're not the victim of unfair criticism, Leo is going to take over the situation and clap back.

When Leo claps back, the intended target won't know what hit them, and it will definitely put them in their place. You don't want a reprimand from Leo.

4. Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Geminis are clever and know what to say in every situation, so when they clap back, it has the desired effect. Another thing Gemini has going for them is that they're very witty and have a sharp sense of humor, so it may take a moment for the target to realize how thoroughly they've been reprimanded.

It's pointless to try to go another round with Gemini because they're always going to win.

5. Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

Virgos put the person who made the comment on notice, and will say something like, "I'm sure I'm didn't hear you right. You didn't mean to be rude/inappropriate/stupid, did you?"

And then, depending on if the person backpedaled and tried to make it right, or if they stood by their stupidity, Virgo would go in for the kill with a clap back so devastating that it would make the person's head spin. Don't try to outwit a Virgo or you'll be sorry.

6. Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

What's that old expression? You don't want to piss off a Scorpio because they'll f*** you up? If that's not it, it's something like it and it holds true.

Scorpio is not going to stay silent or not do anything if they think they've been insulted or wronged. Scorpios will clap back with a vengeance and it might not take many words, but it will make a huge impact and cause their target to evaluate their entire life. Yeah, the Scorpio clap back is that powerful.
