Everyone loves a good scary story, but people’s personalities can often be much scarier than anything you see in a movie. Like everything else in life, the creepiest or most unpleasant thing about you may have already been determined by your zodiac sign. Indeed, the sign we’re born under directly affects our personalities in ways that many people are unwilling to accept. Let’s face it, no one is perfect, but if you’re curious about the scariest part of your personality, keep reading.
Not all of these things are scary like monsters or zombies, but they can be very frightening to those around you. Keep reading to find out what this means. And by the way, remember this is not a set rule, nor is it science. The signs do however show certain patterns.
Why Each Sign Could Be Scary
1. Aries (Mar. 21 – Apr. 19)
What’s scary about an Aries? They can be very violent in certain circumstances, and even worse, they can turn violent fairly quickly. Headstrong and very opinionated, many Aries are just time bombs waiting to go off at any moment. This is a fire sign, just like Leo and Sagittarius. When you combine energy and enthusiasm with hidden rage, you often get explosive behavior that not everyone can deal with.
2. Taurus (Apr. 20 – May 20)
Because they tend to want everything to remain how they like it, Taurus people can be obsessive and very possessive as well. Because they are so persistent, they can’t let go of certain things. Therefore, they start to feel like they own that individual. They are often hoarders as well, again, because they can’t let go of things like other people do. Still, the possessive behavior can be downright creepy.
3. Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Just like their sign represents twins, Geminis can be two-faced liars. They aren’t bad people. They’re just not as loyal to others as many other signs are. They also don’t keep secrets well, which becomes obvious quickly and is one of the reasons why others tend not to trust them with any of their personal information. When it comes to speaking out of both sides of their mouths, Geminis are the worst.
4. Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
If there’s one thing that’s a little scary about Cancers, it’s that they can subconsciously like being wronged. These people have a martyr complex and always feel like they’re getting the short end of the stick. They know that people depend on them, and they use that to act like the victim all the time. They always think of themselves as long-suffering and never getting quite what they deserve.
5. Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)
Leos can be terribly narcissistic – much more so than they’d like to admit. They love drama and therefore the spotlight always finds them. Yet instead of shrinking away from this, Leos revel in it. Leos are generous and a lot of fun, but they tend to think of themselves as more important than they really are, which makes them very narcissistic indeed.
6. Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sep. 22)
Pure and simple, Virgos are control freaks. They work tirelessly to make sure everything around them is perfect. Furthermore, they tend to plan everything out explicitly without asking for any input from anyone. They might think they’re just dedicated, but in reality, it’s a controlling mechanism. They use this to make sure everything is in it’s place and there’s a place for everything. It’s also because they tend to be a little too independent in many scenarios.
7. Libra (Sep. 23 – Oct. 22)
Libras aren’t bad people, but for some reason they are fascinated with those who are. Although they are fair-minded and even empathetic, they often have an obsession with violence and hatred. They will not act on these impulses, but they are fascinated by them so to speak. In fact, they sometimes spend a lot of time thinking about horrific people and actions.
8. Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
When something is extremely terrifying to a Scorpio, it can be impossible for them to ignore it and look the other way. Things such as taboos, tragedies, and even hard-core crime fascinate them. They find it both appealing and terrifying at the same time. But the scariest part, is that they are afraid that their fascination with these things might reveal something about themselves. Which they don’t really want to know.
9. Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
Adventurous, imaginative, and a natural leader, a Sagittarius makes a great friend but also has a huge potential to become a cult leader. In fact, if you’re looking for someone to fill the role of a cult leader, you should pick a Sagittarius. Part of the reason why, is that they want to escape boredom and live a more interesting and fulfilling life. Sometimes however, they tend to push this way too far.
10. Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
Although Capricorns work hard and are very determined, they can also go overboard with this. In fact, they sometimes operate with blinders on and concentrate so hard on their goals that they forget about the human side of things. Therefore, many people think they lack emotions. They aren’t really emotionless, they are just so determined that they forget about human beings sometimes.
11. Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
A good amount of sociopaths are Aquarius people. They tend to work hard to get a certain job done. Furthermore, they feel like they don’t have time to pamper people or even consider these people’s needs and goals. In fact, when an Aquarius is working on something, they can push everything else to the side – especially people.
12. Pisces (Feb. 19 – Mar. 20)
Pisces people are so emotionally volatile that they can be a nightmare sometimes. For a Pisces, the heart comes before anything else. Even though this can mean sensitivity and care for others, it can also mean a lot of crying and emotional baggage that not everyone is prepared to deal with. Maybe even worse, no one ever knows when a Pisces will fall apart over something, making them a little unpredictable when it comes to emotional maturity.
So Which Sign Is The Scariest?
Based on the above, we hope you have an idea of what to look for in a certain zodiac sign. Since every sign can be scary, it’s really hard to tell who should be at the top of our list.
What is scary anyways? We don’t mean how someone looks, but rather how someone reacts whenever they get themselves in a unpleasant situation. Feeling uncomfortable or even endangered usually triggers the scary side to show itself.
Based on these endangered or frightened triggers, we can conclude that Aries, Leos and Scorpios could be a Top 3. An Aries because they are often extremely passionate and almost unstoppable. Leos feel the need to grab all the attention, and can suddenly scream from the rooftops. Scorpios have a thing for revenge, even when you least expect it.
