According to astrologers, certain zodiac signs are more likely to hurt you than others. Read on to find out who tops the list, from mildly rude to remarkably malicious.
6 – Virgo
Zodiac perfectionists can’t help themselves – they have a fixed idea of how things should be done, and when others don’t adhere to it, it makes them anxious and angry.
“A Virgo is sure to drive the point home until you understand that she’s right and you’re wrong, and more often than not, telling you once isn’t enough,” says Danny Santos, astrologer and founder by Santos & The Crystal Visions. “If you resist Virgo’s scrutiny, she will attack you from other angles to divide and conquer your insecurities.”
5 – Leo
Leo is ruled by the selfish Sun. As a result, they think they are better than their peers and “seem to lack a filter or consideration of how their words and actions will affect others,” notes Rachel Clare, astrologer at Mysticsense.
The Leo sign also needs to be the center of attention, “dazzling the masses with their high-achieving and fun-loving nature,” describes Danny Santos. But if you try to steal the spotlight, “Leo can retaliate by adopting territorial behavior, being bossy and undercutting competitors,” he adds.
4 – Sagittarius
The adventurous world travelers of the zodiac, Sagittarians are fun-loving and usually have no problem making new friends.
“However, there’s no denying that Sagittarians are ruled by the element of Fire, which means they can hurt people’s feelings without even realizing it,” explains Rachel Clare. “They think and act so quickly that they often don’t mean the words they say, slipping up and causing offense as a result.”
In fact, Sagittarius is considered the sign most likely to put their foot in their mouth. Their frankness is rarely malicious, but their impulsiveness leads them to say things they should keep to themselves.
3 – Gemini
Known for being gossips, it’s no surprise that Geminis are on this list. They are ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication, but they can talk a little too much. “Their intentions are often to socialize, build community and establish deeper relationships,” says Danny Santos. But they have trouble holding their tongue or keeping a juicy rumor to themselves.
So even if they don’t hurt you to your face, when you find out what they said behind your back, it can feel like a punch to the gut. “Gemini is the epitome of throwing fuel on fire and causing problems for people,” says Rachel Clare.
2 – Aries
“Whether an Aries wants to hurt you or not is irrelevant,” says Danny Santos. “Instead, it’s more important to know that Aries embraces their love of conflict, their rambunctious and impetuous nature, and their desire for excitement.”
Being the most selfish sign of the zodiac, “they are unreliable,” according to Newman, and “they want everyone to behave according to them.” You might feel bad when, on your birthday, your Aries friend makes a reservation at a sushi restaurant — and you don’t eat fish. If you bring up the subject, they “will get super angry and brusque,” says Newman.
But deep down, they enjoy this confrontation. “Aries sees everything as a competition and wants to pit your strength against theirs,” adds Danny Santos.
1 – Scorpio
“Scorpios are intelligent and intuitive, but their biggest problem is that they don’t trust anyone,” says Emily Newman, astrologer and founder of Best of Psychic Reader. Danny Santos notes that they are ruled by Mars, the planet of war, and Pluto, the planet of the underworld. Therefore, they are very mysterious in nature and cannot imagine that others are not hiding their own deep dark secrets.
But the reason Scorpio’s sting is so painful is because he usually intends to hurt you. “This sign is driven by revenge,” explains Rachel Clare. “They can be quite resentful sometimes and don’t really care about the pain they cause.”
Danny Santos says that some of the things that will cause these scorpions to attack are “making a mess of their family, challenging their ego, and most significantly, lying to them.”
