Aries: This sign is ruled by fire and is cardinal, so it’s very easy for them to get riled up over even the smallest of things. Out of the entire zodiac, this sign is prone to the most frequent and violent outbursts. Because Aries are known as the “baby” of the zodiac, their sizzling anger is often described or thought of by peers or fellow Astrologers as temper tantrums. An Aries will either be more or less likely to anger based on their Mars (masculinity) and Moon (inner feelings) sign. If the Mars/Moon sign is in a feminine placement, such as Water or Earth signs, they may not be as quickly to explode as the next Aries with an air or fire placement.
Taurus: Because Taurus is generally one of the most patient signs of the zodiac, they are often slow to anger. However, if annoyed or pushed to the limit, they can explode like a raging bull and even become violent, like a fire sign. Sometimes Taurus anger builds over time and will just explode out with even the smallest of provocativeness once near the breaking point. Usually Taurus anger happens infrequently, unless their Mars (masculinity) and Moon (inner feelings) are in a fire or air sign. To summarize: If you’re dealing with a pissed off bull, then you better get out of their way or the end result will not be pleasant.
Gemini: Gemini is not as prone to anger as fire signs are because of their logical and diplomatic air nature. However, an offended or wronged Gemini can bring out a cold fierceness that can be seen as quite cruel and harsh to more sensitive signs. Although Gemini aren’t ruled by fire, they are masculine signs and therefore more prone to anger. When this sign loses it’s cool, it will yell and argue aggressively. Gemini like to be right and can often be drawn into futile arguments with the more stubborn signs (*cough* Taurus, Leo, Aquarius, Scorpio *cough*) where the Gemini refuses to give up while the fixed signs are just too stubborn to see the Gemini’s point of view.
Cancer: At first thought one may not think that this sensitive, nurturing sign packs much of a punch because of it’s introverted water nature, but this is simply not the case. Like Taurus, this cardinal water sign is slow to anger and patient, but when pushed far enough will explode with emotions and will let out a lot of pent up emotions from past feelings of anger. Sometimes these emotions are enough to make the Cancer themselves upset and they’ll start crying- Not because they’re in the wrong or because they’re afraid, but because they feel so much.
Leo: The lion is a proud sign, and even though it’s ruled by fire it usually won’t stoop to the level of Aries with outbursts of violence. Leo usually have good self control even under stressful situations, and like Gemini can act cold or uncaring. Because Leo is such a dominate, proud sign they can unintentionally offend other signs who don’t understand the Lion’s personality. This can cause drama and conflicts for Leo, unfortunately, which is usually the source of most of it’s problems. However, this is not to say that Leo doesn’t get mad by itself. When they do get mad, they’ll rage and often use abusive language that will be very offensive to the opponent sign.
Virgo: Earth signs are slow to anger and usually hold a lot of patience and self control. Virgo, however, is often very misunderstood and can lash out with feelings stemmed from lack of understanding from peers. Like Taurus, it can explode with ferocious temper that can sometimes match Aries as far as violence goes. The violence can become so extreme that Virgos can even (intentionally or unintentionally) harm themselves in the process.
Libra: Being a mutable air sign makes Libra the most diplomatic and less ruffled of the zodiac. They are very polite and can be quite charming, so others seeing their angry outbursts is usually unlikely unless they’re mad enough (usually, like I’ve stated before, the entire world can’t be classified only by it’s sun sign). Libra’s like to keep their cool and can continue to be quite calm when even the others have reached a point of anger. They like to be above uncontrolled bursts of emotions. However, behind the curtain the Libra has one of the most unmatched anger among the zodiac. But really, how would the rest of us know when Libra keep themselves so composed?
Scorpio: Ah, Scorpio… The scorpion, although being a water sign, can be among the ranks of fire. It is ruled by Mars (masculinity, and aka the God of War) and Pluto (Power and Control). This is not a sign one would want to piss off, that’s for sure. This boiling hot water sign can destroy other people in arguments and can often be seen as quite intimidating. The only sign’s who’s anger can stand a match is Taurus (a really pissed off one) or Aries (also ruled by Mars). Scorpio do not forget wrong doings can will almost always resort to revenge, whether it is soon or in a few months. They are opportunists and usually do not follow the, “Forgive and Forget” motto. Although Scorpio do not often lose their cool, once they do they are a force not to be reckoned with.
Sagittarius: The normally positive sign can be quite insensitive to the feelings of others. Perhaps this is because they favor honestly more than most (maybe at level with Aries, though). Their blunt remarks can offend more sensitive (water/earth) or proud signs (Leo, Scorpio) and cause conflict. For the archer though, they can often be oblivious to the hurt they caused and will often feel like they’re the victim. Being ruled by fire makes Sag’s more quick to anger which can project to high levels, although not as violent as most. Sometimes they’ll get so angry that they won’t even know how to respond back to the one who caused such negative feelings! However, once composed, Sag’s are much more reasonable, so it’s best to deal with a calm one rather than one with it’s arrow drawn.
Capricorn: This is the most serious sign of the zodiac, despite whatever planetary alignments the individual may have. Capricorn is earth, and although earth is Feminine, Capricorn is thought to be more masculine. Capricorn is practical and composed and does not fall victim to it’s emotions unless pushed, like the other two earth signs. In times when it’s anger cannot be controlled behind it’s hard exterior, The Cappy will have outbursts and will shout and cause such a scene that it’ll shock even it’s closest of friends.
Aquarius: An air sign such as this will not be easily roused to anger. It’s element makes it more composed and diplomatic because it is not dictated by emotions (unless earth or water moon/venus sign). Aquarius like to dissolve conflict but can sometimes be so caught up in trying to help others conflict’s that they’ll get overwhelmed and will get angry. A sharp, hurtful, cold remark will come from this normally kind and detached sign and they’ll usually storm away angry. Also, because Aquarius is a fixed sign (as unlikely as it may seem) it can sometimes get into conflicts because of the opinions of others.
Pisces: These fish are quite charming and emotional. It’s almost as if they can feel the emotions emanating off of other people. Because of this they can be very understanding and usually do not get into conflicts all that often. However, being a water sign makes it prone to being sensitive and therefore it can be easily offended. Once angry it can have a mini tantrum in the very fact that it’ll cause a huge fuss. Nasty words will be said sometimes, despite it coming from a pretty little mouth. When pissed off, don’t try and reason with the fish. They won’t listen to you and would rather be left alone to sulk about it and cool off on their own. After cooling down they’ll come to their senses about whatever happened and the conflict hopefully won’t last very long after that.
