The truth is, we all come with personality defects, so to speak, and those traits are more than likely a result of where the planets were at the time of our birth.
Yes, that means you’re not 100 percent responsible for being so many kinds of wrong, you’re simply a victim of your zodiac sign. I hope that makes you feel better. Justified.
Understanding the negative traits of zodiac signs
“Astrology can serve as a tool for self-awareness and understanding,” says Raquel Rodriguez, astrologer and founder of YourZodiac.org. So before anyone gets too caught up in beating themselves up over their flaws, it’s important to note that these “bad” traits don’t make you an inherently bad person.
Instead, the worst traits of each zodiac sign are simply representative of the negative energy each zodiac sign embodies. As we learn and grow, however, we evolve.
“Unevolved signs will behave childishly and express the negative and stereotypical characteristics of a particular sign. Meanwhile, the evolved person will demonstrate the positive traits of the sign amplifying the potential for greatness that we all have,” astrologer A.T. Nunez writes.
“Not to mention, people can have the same Sun sign but have vastly different personalities due to the way their charts are cast,” explains Astrologer, Healer and Casting Director Vanessa Hardy. Therefore, it’s important not to take these negative traits to heart or weaponize them against others.
Now that we know the culprit is astrology itself, let’s unveil the negative traits of zodiac signs.
Roasting the worst personality traits of each zodiac sign
Yes, a warrior, but the kind who throws a massive hissy fit if you don’t get what you want. Not to mention that there is only one opinion ever worth honoring and that’s yours, because you are an Aries, and that means you are always right and that there is no disputing it, ever. You’re the most determined sign of the zodiac, and you’ll walk all over anyone to get where you want to go. What’s wrong with you is that you really do think you’re right — no questions asked.
Yes, that stubborn thing? The reputation you guys have for being the world’s most obstinate creature alive? Well, it’s true, and it’s obnoxious. You are obnoxious, Taurus. While you’re over there thinking you’re cute for “sticking to your guns,” what’s really going on is that you’re “that guy” — the one who pouts and whines and gets their way simply by not listening to anyone else. That “stubborn, bullish” thing may work for you, but it’s certainly not working for anyone else.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Indecisiveness
Get your act together, Gemini, because the whole “I can’t decide” thing is starting to wear us all down. We all know that Gemini represents the Twins, and that means double confusion and double hesitation when it comes to making a decision. What’s wrong with you, Gemini, is that you never actually do make that decision, and while we wait and wait, you seem to ignore us anyway. You’re living in your own world and there’s no place for anyone else.
What’s wrong with you, Cancer, is that you’re a liar and we all know it. You’ve tried to convince us that you’re this perfect person who is made up of love, light and unicorn bubbles, but the truth is you’re just a regular ol’ person like the rest of us. We would gladly take you to our bosom, but unfortunately, you make that job way too impossible to do because you’re such a fake about it. You see, Cancer, that sappy “I am the golden light” routine? No one believes you!
What’s wrong with you, Leo? You’re a show-off that doesn’t always have the goods to back it up. Oh sure, Leo has the reputation for loving the spotlight and hogging the attention, but no one ever said you have the actual talent to back that up. Just because you’re interested in the arts doesn’t mean you’re an artist. You’re delusional — that’s what’s wrong with you. You think you’re better than you are.
No love is lost here in Virgo World. What’s wrong with you, Virgo, is that you’re such a judge that you’re almost Ruby Miranda material — and I am not a Virgo, but I seriously must have some Virgo traits in me. You isolate and exclude everyone in your life, and sooner or later, even the ones who love and adore you eventually get wind of who you really are and they just go sour on you. You might want to stop condemning everyone and everything you see, but then again, you can’t, because you’re a Virgo.
Passive-aggressive to the very end is our friend Libra, who will yes us to death just to shut us up. What’s wrong with you isn’t about you being too nice; it’s about you being too dishonest with us. We get it, you don’t want to argue. You’ll flee the scene to get away from conflict. Understood. What we can’t stand and what is so very, very obvious is that you can’t say what’s on your mind, especially when it’s so important for you to do so, and instead of just “telling it like it is,” you’ll sweet talk us until we once again have no idea what you really want or feel.
The truth is, you’re just too much. Yeah, yeah, we get it. You’re the sexy one. Oh boy. You’re the kinky one, the mean one, the selfish one, yada yada yada. Now, how about being more than just the stereotypical Scorpio… for, like, one day? No can do? Well, that’s just it then — that’s what’s wrong with you. You cannot change. You’re stuck in your ways. You’ve decided you’re your own religion and that it’s your way or the highway. It’s time to open your eyes and take a look at all the people who simply do not care to practice the religion of you.
Why don’t we just leave you alone so you can finally be happy? I wouldn’t say that the need to be alone, private and isolated is necessarily a wrong thing, but to be a person who seriously wants nothing to do with others — as does the typical Sagittarian — I have to say, it’s a bit of a bore after a while. And Sagittarius, that’s what’s wrong with you: You’re boring. You’re so into your own personal world of wonder that you forget the simple things in life, like friendship… or relating to another human being altogether.

Capricorn: Emotionally closed off
What’s wrong with you is that you repress your feelings again and again and then, finally, one day, it all comes out and while it’s a-flowin’. So, it’s the mean-spirited vengeance fantasy that seems to power your newly released emotional build-up. You’re a destroyer of friendships, and you’ll do it on a whim because when “whim” takes you, you don’t really care about who gets hurt. The truth is, Capricorn, that you like to hear the sound of your own voice a little too much, and you like it most when you’re putting someone else down. You think you’re such a clever thing, don’t you?
You like to keep quiet. That’s all well and good until, of course, we get why you’ve kept so quiet: you were planning our destruction. Here’s the thing, Aquarius: you’re the liar who giggles and pretends you’re innocent, but in truth, you’re a scheming manipulator who works in the shadows. What’s wrong with you is that you’re not honest; you lie. And to further yourself along, you will lie again, bold-faced and with full intent.
Pisces: Too sensitive
Enablers of all kinds love a Pisces, and why? Because Pisces is the most suggestible of all the signs. What that means, Pisces, is that you are perceived as one of the dumbest signs of the zodiac, the “go-to schmuck” for gags, pranks and teases. You’re the astrological wimp, the one we all know as “too sensitive” and “too emotional.” Guess what? It’s not only true, it’s dull. Hey, this is a hard life and nothing makes it harder than having “that person” around to weep and moan and hog all the attention so that we can all mutually celebrate the fact that our Pisces friend is just a little more sensitive (and deserving of all the attention in the room than others. Poor baby.
