Everyone gets angry from time to time; we as humans can’t help but lose our temper or patience every once in a while. Maybe certain things get under your skin, like when someone mentions a touchy subject or teases you about something that you feel embarrassed or hurt about. Anger can get the best of you if you don’t know how to reign it in, however, and each zodiac sign expresses their anger a bit differently.
Below, we’ll go into more detail about how every sign in the zodiac deals with anger, and hopefully this can help you to manage any anger issues you might have and learn to deal with the situation in a more calm manner. We will also talk about which aspects of anger each sign needs to work on in order to become their best selves.
HOW EACH ZODIAC SIGN EXPRESSES ANGER
As one of the three fire signs, Aries definitely can burn you if you don’t know how to deal with them. They have a short fuse, and anger quite easily depending on the situation. They have a passion about life, and get frustrated when someone or something stands in their way. While Aries possesses a lot of great qualities, their dark side can come out to play when things don’t go their way.
While they don’t usually provoke people, others can get under their skin or rub them the wrong way pretty easily. They have a stubborn nature, and when they get the short end of the stick in life, they tend to not take things very well. Others may feel like they have to walk on eggshells around them to keep them from erupting into a fiery volcano, as an Aries will definitely let you have it if you hurt or anger them.
However, even if they get angry quickly, they will soon forget what made them mad in the first place. They are the type to forgive and forget, so don’t worry too much if you get on their bad side. They’ll come back around soon enough.
While Taurus doesn’t anger easily, you’d better watch out if you do happen to make them mad – they can become a bit passive aggressive and shut you out if you hurt them badly enough. They don’t like to admit it when someone hurts them, so you might find it difficult to even tell if you’ve hurt them in the first place. However, if they give you the silent treatment, you will know that you upset them. They especially get angry when someone lies, cheats, or betrays them in some sort of way. Most of the time, however, Taureans keep an even keel and don’t let much bother them.
They will talk things out with you when they feel ready, but make sure to let them thoroughly get out what they need to, as they usually don’t talk much. So, when angered, they will have a lot to say and will need your full attention.
Don’t expect everything to be peachy keen, however, as a Taurus usually holds grudges and finds it hard to get close to someone on the same level after they’ve betrayed them in the past.
Gemini, otherwise known as The Twins, can make your head spin if you don’t know how to deal with them or what to expect. They will say one thing and then do another, or change their mind in a heartbeat about certain issues. To say the least, Geminis can be almost impossible to understand or keep up with sometimes.
As far as their anger, though, most Geminis do not have a hot temper. If something makes them mad, they’ll express themselves, but they won’t dwell on it for too long. Geminis have a zest for life, and don’t want to spend too much time letting things get under their skin.
Geminis can talk your ear off, however, so if something makes them REALLY mad, rest assured you will hear about it for a while.
Geminis don’t like people telling them what to do or trying to control them, so if you don’t do these things, you’ll probably stay on their good side.
Cancers have a very sweet, compassionate, gentle nature. However, some people like to take advantage of this, which makes them feel unappreciated and taken for granted. If you get on their bad side, don’t expect a response; you’ll have to go to them if you want to remain in contact.
They are highly passive aggressive, so if you make them mad, don’t expect them to tell you. If you don’t have a high level of intuition and can’t read body language well, then dealing with a Cancer will not be a cake walk for you.
Like a true fire sign, they will burn themselves out quite quickly, and will get over the issue just as fast as it happened. So, don’t worry too much if you anger them – they will not hold a grudge for very long.
You do not want to get on their bad side, though, as Scorpios love to get revenge. They will plot against you if you do something to hurt them, and will not ever let you live it down. If they seem quiet, this should worry you, because they likely have a grand scheme in their heads of how they will get back at you.
They will come to you in their own time, if this is the path they choose. Don’t try to push them, as this will only anger them more.
