All of us get angry – sometimes, the anger is justified and sometimes it is not. It’s no secret that you probably shouldn’t mess with someone if they’re already mad. If you see that someone is mad, your first instinct is to probably back up and give them space – no need to provoke them and make them even angrier. But some people have buttons that you should NEVER press. These buttons should ESPECIALLY be avoided when they are angry. Each zodiac sign expresses their anger in different ways. Some zodiac signs express their anger more than others. To find out which zodiac signs you should NEVER mess with when they’re mad, continue reading below.
1. Taurus (April 20 to May 20):
The sun sign Taurus has a bull that represents it, so no brownie points for guessing how angry can Taurus get. When they are angry, they can get violent and obsessive – Taurus rarely listen to others and can be stubborn as hell and extremely annoying. However, their anger is mostly justified in a way that they only get upset over the right things. When they are angry, there is little you can say to calm them down. They just need time to cool down. When they are frustrated they can get very loud. They have little patience for anyone who annoys them when they are mad.
What to do?
Since Taurus have little patience for anyone that irritates them, the best thing to do is to let the storm pass. If you are at the receiving end of a Taurus’s anger, simply walk away at that point of time. The good thing is that more often than not, a Taurus will know that it has crossed the line and while they may not apologize to you (due to their ego), they will make sure that the situation turns to normal soon enough.
2. Cancer (June 22 to July 22):
Do not assume this maternal sign is gentle with anger, after all the crab has a painful pinch. When Cancers are angry, they usually hold it in and display a warning through passive-aggressive behavior. If these warnings aren’t heeded and the situation persists, they then proceed to explode and let it ALL out. When angry Cancers are almost like an explosive volcano, things that have been building up for years come out and what comes out of their mouth will surprise the holy crap out of you. It does take a lot to get Cancers to that level, but when it happens, it takes them a long time for us to cool off. When provoked their claws will come out and they’ll be sure to put you in your place in the way that only a Cancer. A pissed off Cancer holds no bar. As loving and caring as they can be, they give zero fucks when someone has gotten them boiling mad. They also have extensive memories that preserve vivid details, so don’t expect them to forget it any time soon, though they may not make it evident. This is why you have to be careful in dealing with Cancers. If you push them too far, you’ll see a side that few are aware of. If a Cancer is mad, you better get out of that room.
What to do?
The first step towards reconciliation is acknowledging that you posed a threat to Cancers, and that you will do everything you can to maintain. Talk is just talk, though. The Cancers, as a member of the cardinal signs, prefers action over words. Cancer’s feelings of safety are based on emotions, not logic, so a home-cooked meal may indeed do the trick, provided they can taste the love. A cup of warm milk and a nice cuddle can also melt the Crab’s defenses.
3. Aries (March 21 to April 19):
When an Aries is Angry basically everyone around them will know about it. There’s no holding back. Aries, you’re just as headstrong and opinionated as your fellow fire signs Leo and Sagittarius, but unlike them, your energy and enthusiasm can turn into explosive violence at the drop of a hat. You’re a walking time bomb of seething rage, and the more you try to hide it, the more it escapes in unpredictable, volatile mood swings. Aries are not very good at hiding their frustration and can explode out of nowhere turning into a ranting, raving maniac. When an Aries gets mad, they tend to erupt just like a volcano, and anyone standing around them will get burned by their words. There is no middle ground with an Aries, as their emotions tend to get the best of them. When Aries gets angry, it can be difficult for them to see the bigger picture. They explode without considering the ramifications of their words and actions. Words spoken in the heat of anger have ended relationships, and decisions made in the heat of passion have sent nations to war. Those of you who have been on the receiving end of the Aries temper know that if not calmed down they can even get violent. If you see an Aries angry, it would be good to stay uninvolved!
What to do?
On the positive side however they tend to get over it just as quickly and never stay angry for too long so it is always a good idea to give them some space until they cool off; they’ll appreciate you not getting in their face about it. Start by separating yourself from Aries to your time. You need them for getting a chance to take into account issues and to cool down.
4. Leo (July 23 to August 22):
Leos are dramatic and dominant. A Leo’s anger isn’t anger, it’s rage. Their rage is all noise, and the louder they are, the better they feel. They will say anything to shake your confidence. When they are angry, they firmly believe that they are correct and they will not back down from an argument. Leos are true hotheads. They mostly display anger to establish authority. Leos will do anything and everything to prove that they are right and will rarely admit that they are wrong. They are not afraid to resort to insults when they are angry at someone. Also, they will say literally anything to the person they are mad at. They will insult them harshly and won’t regret it ever. They become blinded by their anger.
What to do?
Since Leos are dramatic, you too need to let go of subtlety while trying to deal with an angry Leo. Tell them (in no uncertain terms) that they are wrong and even if they try to back down, explain your point clearly. If you can, also come up with a few proofs of your innocence, so that you can deal with them in a fair and square manner. Do not get intimidated.
5. Scorpio (October 23 to November 21):
Although Scorpions are calm and composed most of the time, they have the habit of holding grudges, sometimes for years! Scorpios are like: “I’m ready for you b**ch! Bring it!!” They are really dangerous to be around when they’re angry. They hold grudges, and they do not easily let go of whatever upset them. The thing with Scorpios is that you won’t even be aware they are angry with you because they will be totally passive aggressive. They can be a tough nut to crack when they are angry, simply because they won’t tell you what has rubbed them the wrong way – they can also get extremely insulting to those they don’t like and this can turn out to be the worst part of their behavior. And then they will comment something in an insulting and hurtful way, out of the blue. You won’t even know what hit you!
What to do?
The only thing you can do is to help a Scorpion loosen up a bit when they are angry. If it is someone whom you genuinely love, you will need them to trust you to tell them all about their issues with you. Scorpions can be extremely cold and this is one of their way to vent out their anger. Aim to thaw ice with them first before you do anything else. They love to look for information.
6. Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21):
A Sagittarian is a time bomb. Watch out for this sign when in a bad mood. They are usually very nice and decent, but when they freak out, it’s going to be an explosion you’ll never forget; they will do anything and everything and say just about anything nasty. A Sagittarian will turn into a monster when angry and they might even resort to physical assaults (rare case scenario). Their favorite means of lashing out in anger are with words. They will verbally lash out at others. When they are angry, they are furious with their words. Do not rub them the hard way. Luckily, once the anger passes, Sagittarius will usually apologize for their outburst.
What to do?
The best part about an angry Sagittarian is that no matter how angry or mean they get, they will soon realize their mistake and apologize profusely – of course this is no justification for their bad behavior, so you need to tell them, in no unclear terms that this kind of behavior is not acceptable. Aim to mellow them down as soon as they get angry (for their own good and yours!)
7. Capricorn (December 22 – January 19):
Capricorns are usually rational and down-to-earth people. They will endure a lot of things and they will keep it all in. But, when you cross that line (and it’s a line placed waaaay up high), you better run. If you managed to get a Capricorn angry, run and don’t look back. The worst part of a Capricorn who is angry is that they seldom lose their temper and this is very dangerous, since all hell breaks loose when they do! When they are mad they will talk back to anyone in a condescending way and they will say anything and everything to insult that person. Their words really do hurt. Also, they will release their anger on the first person they see. Anger is easily this zodiac sign’s biggest weakness.
What to do?
Mostly, Capricorns are very collected and responsible. The only thing you need to do is to help them manage their anger in a more constructive way – all they need to do is to redirect their negative energies somewhere else. Help a Capri manage his or her anger by talking to him or making him join a meditation class.
