What Makes Your Zodiac Sign Angry?

Shaloo Walia is an astrologer and tarot reader. She is an Art of Living teacher and also an ardent Krishna devotee and a follower of ISKCON.


What makes you angry? People react differently when they are angry. Some scream and shout to express their anger. Some bottle up their anger inside like a simmering volcano which can erupt anytime. Some distance themselves in order to avoid confrontation. Some don’t express or show their anger but become sad/ depressed instead. Some hold grudges while some flare up like gasoline on fire and then forget and move on.

Zodiac signs depict the personalities of individuals and can also tell us broadly what angers people of a particular zodiac sign. Knowing what angers each zodiac sign can help us in maintaining a healthy relationship with them, be it personal or professional.


Aries (March 21 – April 19)

This is a volatile sign and these people are angered even at the slightest provocation. Their anger most of the times represent their silly temper tantrums. When they are upset, they will lash out with cutting words but their anger doesn’t last long. They don’t hold grudges. If one is able to patiently distract them, they will get back to normal quickly and forget all about it.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Taureans don’t get angry easily but once done, there’s no stopping. It’s best to stay away from them when they are angry. It’s best to leave an angry Taurus alone to process his/her feelings.

They are not easily angered but are prone to emotional outbursts which will end in lot of tears.Once they are angry or upset, it takes a long to talk them down.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Leos are quick to anger.They get angry when things don’t go their way or if their pride is injured.Though calm but if angered, they can be fierce like a lion.They cool down as quickly as they flare up. It’s best to let them be until they calm down.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpios are incredibly stubborn and mean-spirited, especially when their buttons are pushed. They are unforgiving and seek revenge when angry. They lash out when angry and don't think before saying cruel things. It’s best to stay out of their way when they are angry.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarians have one of the calmest personalities of all the signs. They don’t display their anger most of the times. But when anger is uncontrollable, they will be confused how to react and tend to become depressed & withdrawn. It’s best to talk to them about what’s bothering them.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn is another sign driven by pride.This no-nonsense sign won’t spare their friends even when they are angry. When upset, they isolate themselves and bury themselves in work to avoid their feelings. When they are distant and withdrawn, don’t try to joke with them to cheer them up as this may make them close up even more.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius is another sunny and upbeat sign. They are not riled easily but when angry, they make full use of their razor sharp tongue and indifferent attitude.

@Meenal Sudarshan Kriya and meditation indeed work wonders!

Meenal from Singapore on April 08, 2020:

Lovely article. I read about zodiac signs belonging to me, my husband . I am libran and He is Capricorn.

You have mentioned very correctly about Capricorn people.

I do not get angry easily and after practicing sudarshan kriya and meditation..I have become more aware of my feelings. Hence I know what anger causes to our body, mind and at subtle levels.

Shaloo Walia (author) from India on February 28, 2020:

My pleasure, Prantika. It's good that you don't take out your anger on someone else.

@Raymond Hope it gave some useful insights!

Raymond Philippe from The Netherlands on February 28, 2020:

Upon reading I of course immediately looked up my zodiac sign and that of my wife. That gave me something to think about.

Prantika Samanta from Kolkata, India on February 27, 2020:

Thank you for sharing an interesting article. I do not get annoyed easily but when I am angry, I love to stay alone and in seclusion to calm down, and processing takes time.

Shaloo Walia (author) from India on February 25, 2020:

A typical Taurean you are, John

Shaloo, as a Taurean I don't anger easily but when I do look out haha. leave me alone and I'll be back to normal before long as though nothing happened. Thanks for sharing.

Shaloo Walia (author) from India on February 25, 2020:

My pleasure, Eric. It's hard not to get angry but as long as we know how to manage anger, it's okay.

Shaloo Walia (author) from India on February 25, 2020:

Thank you Lorna. It's really good that you are always so calm and know how to manage anger. Very few people can do that.

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on February 25, 2020:

Cool. They sure fit my wife and I to a tee. However through hard practice at forgiveness I repress but can process that away from long grudge holding.

Thanks for another great insight.

Lorna Lamon on February 25, 2020:

It does take a lot to make me angry Shaloo and if it does happen I have the tools to process it. It's amazing how closely connected we are to our star signs and thanks to you I understand why. Great article.
