Introduction\n\n\n\nMean people are never pleasant to be around, even if they partially express this behavior. Just like other traits and characteristics, many people who were born under certain signs can be a bit meaner than others. Often, these people know that they are mean because it's a natural part of their personality. Some, in fact, also do not care that they are mean. But truth be told, many of these people are mean only when you push them past their limit. Let\u2019s face it, everyone has a breaking point.\n\n\n\nIndeed, many of the zodiac signs mentioned here are actually very nice and pleasant people until you cross their line. And when you do, watch out! Whatever the cause of their behavior, below are the meanest zodiac signs in order starting with the meanest.\n\n\n\nTop 5 Meanest Zodiac Signs Ranked\n\n\n\n1. Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)\n\n\n\nBeing Mean Unintentionally\n\n\n\nAlthough Capricorns can be very mean, they are often not being mean intentionally. After a while however, Capricorns could start to hate everyone and everything. They might at some point draw the line if you talk about their lack of niceness. Sometimes, a Capricorn starts to be mean when he or she is seriously working on something. They often don't like to be disturbed. Unfortunately, the recipient of this meanness will be surprised because he or she didn't do anything in the first place. All they know is that the Capricorn is being mean to them and they won\u2019t know why.\n\n\n\nWhen They Realize They're Being Mean\n\n\n\nIf you catch a Capricorn in the middle of an especially mean episode, they might realize that they are being mean. To them however, it won\u2019t matter that much. Most Capricorns will continue to be mean, regardless of the intensity of the meanness and regardless of how many people are calling attention to their behavior. In other words, Capricorns can be very mean, both intentionally and unintentionally. Last but not least, a Capricorn often finds it hard to forgive, which could result in a long lasting state of meanness.\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n2. Gemini (May 21 - June 20)\n\n\n\n"It's All About Me" Attitude\n\n\n\nGeminis feel like the whole world is theirs, even if no one around them likes them. Their \u201cit\u2019s all about me\u201d attitude is one of the things that makes them a bit mean. If you try to be nice to them or if you try to change this behavior, they might become even meaner. Sometimes, the only time a Gemini is nice to someone is when they think they\u2019ll be getting something in return. Never try to resist a Gemini when they\u2019re being mean because they\u2019ll sometimes get even meaner. This makes you wish you hadn\u2019t started being nice in the first place.\n\n\n\nMean Peaks\n\n\n\nWhen you\u2019re up against a Gemini who\u2019s being mean to you, you can try to knock them down a notch, but it doesn\u2019t always work. It\u2019s not that they are mean 24 hours a day, seven days a week, but their feelings of entitlement usually cause them to have a mean streak that you very likely haven\u2019t seen before.\n\n\n\n3. Leo (July 23 - August 22)\n\n\n\nThe Need To Feel Special\n\n\n\nLeos think they are the kings and queens of the universe, and they expect everyone on the planet to treat them accordingly. Leos do have a desire to be liked. At the same time however, if you don\u2019t treat them like they\u2019re special, they often let you know exactly how they feel about it. And they\u2019re not shy about letting you know either! Leos aren\u2019t always interested in creating a good first impression, so if the mood strikes them, your first impression of them will be, \u201cman, that person is mean!\u201d\n\n\n\nDon't Tease Them\n\n\n\nLeos often like only other Leos or Leo-like people. They consider it unfortunate that not everyone is a Leo. This can cause them to be extremely mean at times. If you\u2019re around a Leo and they act like they may have gotten off on the wrong side of the bed that morning, never tease them. You won\u2019t be prepared for what you get in return!\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n4. Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)\n\n\n\nLong Mean Moods\n\n\n\nScorpios tend to have very arrogant personalities. If you resist that personality or show them in any way that you don\u2019t like it, they will respond by being mean. The worst part is that when they are in one of these \u201cmean\u201d moods, it can take a long time for them to get out of it. Scorpios can express their bad moods towards anyone who is close to them. Often they don\u2019t really care who they take it out on \u2013 just as long as someone is there for them to be mean to. They can be easy to approach, unless you let them know (even in the slightest way) that you don\u2019t particularly care for their loud personality.\n\n\n\nSuddenly Mean\n\n\n\nA Scorpio can change from someone who is nice and approachable to someone who is spreading mean things to everyone in the area. Sometimes even in a very short period of time. This can be a little scary to people who aren\u2019t used to this type of behavior, but this is how Scorpios are. Their bold personalities show themselves in various ways.\n\n\n\n5. Virgo (August 23 - September 22)\n\n\n\nBeing Mean But Not Wanting To\n\n\n\nWhen Virgos get into a bad mood, there's usually no way to calm them down. Whenever this happens, they are irritated, cold, and just plain mean. They also snap at you a lot. Even though they can be mean, they usually don\u2019t like being that way. It\u2019s just that they can\u2019t help it; it\u2019s a natural part of their psyche. The only good thing about a Virgo\u2019s meanness and bad moods is that they usually disappear when the people on the other end start acting more respectful. Even close friends and family members can get this type of treatment if they don\u2019t treat a Virgo right.\n\n\n\nGetting Through To Them\n\n\n\nWhen Virgos are in a bad mood, it can also be very difficult to get through to them. You can try, of course, but it usually doesn\u2019t work. If you start to show some respect for them and find ways to boost their egos, you can get a lot closer to calming them down than you would if you did nothing.\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nConclusion\n\n\n\nLet's first mention once again that every person can be both nice and mean. The 5 zodiac signs we mentioned here are definitely not the only ones who express their meanness. They could however show it more often since their astrological traits point them in that direction. However, its not a set rule.\n\n\n\nEven though we listed Capricorn as being the meanest sign out there, we definitely don't want you to avoid them. They can be extremely nice and empathetic, so take that into consideration too. The same hoes for a Leo. Sure, a bunch of them like to be special, but who doesn't? They could simply show this personality more often.\n\n\n\nAnother thing to take into consideration is the fact that certain circumstances can provoke people to be mean. Anyone can show this response if you tease them or even try to find their limits. So you can't blame a Gemini for being mean after you annoyed them. The same goes for every sign.\n\n\n\nFinal Words And Related Articles\n\n\n\nThe information we provided in this article is based on our own research and our own experience.
