This Is Your Most Toxic Trait, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

We’ve all got our red flags, and this is your most toxic trait based on your zodiac sign. Awareness is the first step to making a positive change or, at the very least, being less toxic less often. Or embrace your toxicity, whatever!

Aries (March 21st to April 19th)

Your temper.

Aries, you have passion, you have determination, and you have one hell of a temper. While your fiery nature makes all of your emotions run extra hot, your anger tends to cause the most heat for everyone, yourself included. Sure, getting pissed off is human, but your fury often goes too far. Remember, fighting fire with fire only leaves everyone burned.

Taurus (April 20th to May 21st)

Your stubbornness.

Taurus, you are one of the most grounded of the zodiac signs, so much so that you are stuck in place. As a fixed sign, you are prone to being extremely willful, even if the evidence suggests that another way besides your own is a better route. Try and be a little more flexible. You can’t always expect everyone else to bend.

Gemini (May 22nd to June 21st)

Your inability to be alone.

Gemini, you love to socialize so much it’s almost clinical. While friendships are an incredibly important part of life, there is also more to living than constantly being surrounded by other people. After all, there’s another relationship you’re neglecting by doing so, and it’s the one you have with yourself.

Cancer (June 22nd to July 22nd)

Your walls.

Cancer, you have a tendency to be extremely closed off, even to those you are closest with. You go inward and don’t invite anyone else inside. It’s a self-protection thing. But your secretive ways won’t keep your heart safe the way you think it will. It will just keep you lonely.

Leo (July 23rd to August 22nd)

Your ego.

Leo, you are probably the most prideful sign of the zodiac. You know your worth and want everyone else to know it, too. But with great pride comes an even greater ego. You don’t like your opinions challenged. You hate apologizing because you loathe the idea of being wrong. Constructive criticism? Never heard of her. Your excessive desire to be “right” is getting in your way more than you think.

Virgo (August 23rd to September 22nd)

Your perfectionism.

Virgo, you are all about coloring in the lines. To you, the phrase “done is better than perfect” is nothing but a lie. You always need to say the right thing. Messing up is your idea of hell. You need your life to look and feel pristine in order for it to be worthwhile. But this need for perfection makes you incredibly critical, both of yourself and of others. You’re always looking for something wrong so you can fix it and it’s exhausting, both for you and everyone around you.

Libra (September 23rd to October 22nd)

Your detachment.

Libra, you are so carefree you come across as utterly detached. To be honest, a Libra probably invented the word “whatever” because that’s how Librans live. You float through life because you don’t want to feel tethered to anyone or any place. But your “go with the flow” nature makes you incredibly easy to sway and you struggle to take a hard stance on most things. Consider that it’s okay to care deeply about something, and to show that you care, too.

Scorpio (October 23rd to November 22nd)

Your jealousy.

Scorpio, you are the most possessive and jealous of the entire zodiac. Someone even saying as much as “hello” to a lover makes you feel threatened. You need to learn to loosen your grip on your relationships and stop being so controlling; it’s not doing what you think it does. As the saying goes: “If you love something, let it go.” You need to trust others enough to let them be. Otherwise, why are you even with them?

Sagittarius (November 23rd to December 21st)

Your flightiness.

Sagittarius, you are flighty as hell. You can’t sit still for too long or you end up feeling stifled and cagey. This translates to every area of your life, from your jobs to your relationships to your opinions to where you live. You’re constantly switching your life up in order to stay interested in it. But running from one “best” thing to the next “best” thing is way more tiring than you realize. You need a safe place to catch your breath. You don’t need everything to be stable but you do need some kind of anchor. Find it.

Capricorn (December 22nd to January 20th)

Your inability to ask for help.

Capricorn, you are ambitious. You have your checklist and you are always adding new tasks and goals to it. You love a sense of accomplishment, especially when it comes to your career. But this makes you a bit of a control freak. You hate delegating. You live by the ancient Capricorn proverb “I can just do it myself.” And while you always do, you end up becoming exhausted and resentful as a result. Where’s the victory in that, Capricorn? I’ll wait.

Aquarius (January 21st to February 18th)

Your pessimism.

Aquarius, in your eyes, you aren’t a pessimist. You’re a realist! But how is it that you always seem to find the worst side of everything? Is it really realistic that bleakness shrouds all? While a silver lining doesn’t exist in every situation, it might do you some good to at least look for it every now and then. Life is not as dark as it seems.

Pisces (February 19th to March 20th)

Your extreme sensitivity.

Pisces, you are the most sensitive of all of the zodiac signs. Hurt feelings is your resting state. The dam behind your eyelids is always threatening to break. Everything feels like it’s too much and not enough all at once. While letting yourself feel everything you do is an important part of authentic living, it will help you to learn to respond, not react. You might find the tears might be better suited for another time.
