What Impacts The Level Of Meanness In Astrology?

When it comes to astrology, most people are just familiar with their sun sign.

“I’m an Aries –
they say – that’s why I’m very impulsive.”

The truth is, the level of meanness that we express has to be more deeply examined by viewing our astrology birth chart as a whole.

For example, our Mars placement will give us a good hint into how we express anger.

The house that Mars is in will tell us in what area of life does that anger usually comes up.

Also, if we take a look at our Moon sign, this will give us a good clue into where we have a conflict within ourselves.

Our moon sign is our shadow, and our shadow tends to sabotage and disrupt anything that our sun sign (which is our conscious personality) wants to accomplish in this life.

So we can also consider our moon sign as a measurement of one’s internal meanness. You can find out your moon sign for free here.

What Zodiac Sign Is The Meanest – Ranked From Nicest To Meanest

Even though our inner intentions are much more important than what we say out loud, in this article, we will display and rank the zodiac signs outer personalities.

When you’ve read the article you will know what zodiac sign is the meanest, starting from the nicest of the 12 astrological signs. 

Let’s take a look at the list!

1. Libra (September 23 – October 22)

When speaking about a sign that will do anything to avoid conflict and keep things in balance, we are talking about Libra!

The most important thing to them is being nice to people and getting everyone to feel like a part of the group.

Ruled by the beautiful Venus who is all about beauty, Libras tend to be very sensitive to harsh words and disrespectful conversations.

Libra is is the most innocent zodiac sign and their mean side is rarely seen as such. However, it can show up in their diplomatic traits which they can use for personal gain.

If Libras want to reduce their mean side, they need to use their balancing and social skills for the good of the people around them.


2. Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Pisces is the most gentle zodiac sign, and a master when it comes to putting their needs over others. 

They tend to prioritize everyone’s well above their own, and radiating so much loving energy. 

With their deeply caring and imaginative nature, they are always dreaming about otherwordly things and concepts which are about “The Oneness of the Universe”.

Their dark side can show up in very covert ways, and they can use their sensitivity to play the victim or avoid taking any action.

If Pisces wants to reduce their shadow side, they need to use their sensitivity and direct it towards themselves, so they can cultivate genuine self-love. One of the most powerful ways to do this is with self-love affirmations.

3. Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Loving and nurturing, able to provide deep emotional support – Cancerians are one of the nicest persons of the zodiac.

They are family-oriented, tend to give all of themselves to the people around them, and always try to help as much as they can.

The rudeness of Cancers can show up in their moodiness and constant change of feelings, which leads to passive-aggressive behavior.

When a Cancer learns how to give love and nurture themself first, they tend to become one of the nicest people that you can be around.

4. Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Taurians are characterized by their determined and persistent character.

Grounded in reality,  Taurus people have down-to-earth values which makes them very reliable.

Highly patient with themselves and the people around them, they bring practical and clear-headed thinking to the table.

Their dark side doesn’t come up that easily, but when it does, it’s usually because you definitely made them upset!

A Taurus who’s been overly patient will tend to lash out once their boundaries are being crossed, or once they decided that they don’t agree with your opinion.

They display their meanness through their unwillingness to change their mind.

If Taurians allow themselves to soften and change the way they perceive the world, they would benefit tremendously.

5. Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Outgoing, friendly, and social, Aquarius is the definition of what’s called a “people’s person”.

They look and appear different and are considered the eccentrics of the zodiac.

Their main thing is to make friends with everyone, but never at the cost of losing their authenticity.

The greatest thing about Aquarians is that they will give it to you straight! They won’t lie to you or talk behind your back.

Their meanness can show up through rebellious thinking which leads them to think they’re above other people and society.

Due to their need to create a different world, they tend to have a big amount of anger pent up inside them.

When Aquarians live by the quote, “Be the change that you want to see in the world”, their meanness will be redirected into futuristic ideas and the betterment of humanity.

6. Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Known for their practicality and hard-working attitude, Virgos tend to be very straightforward when speaking with you.

They don’t like people who are lazy and who are complaining, so if you are one of those – they will call you out on it.

Their straight-forwardness is always for your own good and they will use it to motivate you to move forward in life.

When Virgo’s learn to judge people less on what they do, their meanness subsides, and they’re able to provide practical guidance for anyone in need of their earthly gifts.

7. Leo (July 23 – August 22)

The King of the zodiac, Leo tends to be very optimistic and outgoing. Known for their fun expressive nature, Leos are highly confident and charismatic.

When displayed negatively, these traits can show up as egocentricity, rudeness, and increased self-importance.

Leos display their meanness through devaluing anyone who they consider is below themselves.

When Leos understand that they can be the King of their own Kingdom without being rude to people around them, they will start to be the leaders that they were born to be, and people will turn to them for guidance and support.



8. Sagittarius (November 22 – December 19)

Sagittarians can see through you. They possess higher knowledge and always view things from a higher perspective.

They are very optimistic, freedom-oriented, and people who have a highly developed intellect. That’s what makes them arrogant sometimes.

Sagittarians usually tend to feel that they are above other people when it comes to the things they know, and they’re prone to developing narcissistic traits.

Their meanness can come up through the need for revenge.

If Sagittarians allow themselves to sit back, relax, and let the world be as it is without judging it or making it wrong, people will come to them asking for advice, guidance, and direction.

When their self-importance is decreased, the wise guide will naturally come up out of them.

9. Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Dual in their nature, Geminis can be considered as two-faced. Depending on their current mood, they can be either very friendly and fun or very mean and rude.

Geminis have a highly intellectual mind who is always running and analyzing.

They are known to be witty, very friendly, and honest. The issue shows up when their honesty is combined with insensitivity.

That’s where their gift of analyzing other people’s behavior goes the wrong way.

Things can go wrong when they use their communication skills as a sword to cut through your soul.

When Geminis allow themselves to be the smart people that they really are, without using their gifts for selfish desires, their mean side will naturally subside.

10. Aries (March 21 – April 19)

The intensity of Aries is something that we’ve all felt.

Aries represents the archetype of the Warrior, and Aries people will do anything to defend, protect, and fight against anything that they perceive is the enemy.

They are considered very action-oriented, directive, and assertive.

Like all our virtues, when taken to extremes, they can show up as negative traits that we possess.

When their impulsivity shows up, they will do anything to get what they want, and erase anyone who is in their way.

When Aries people take control of their aggression and allow themselves to soften just enough so they can feel their impact on the people around them, they will become the leaders they were born to be.

11. Capricorn (December 20 – January 19)

As a female Capricorn myself, it hurt to put my zodiac sign as the next meanest sign, but you will see why in a minute. 

Capricorn is a hardworking, success-oriented and clever zodiac sign.  

Capricorns are the people you want to have around if you want to advance and move forward in life.

They are very reliable and are showing up for life every day. Capricorns are all about tradition and the conservative, so they can show up as very rigid in how they view the world.

When Capricorns allow their dissatisfaction with themselves to get a hold of them, they will emotionally detach, be very cold, pessimistic, and unforgiving.

This can show up as putting other people down and straight-up discouraging anyone who tries to improve himself.

If Capricorns put a great focus on the positive traits they naturally have, their meanness will take the back seat, and people will turn to them for career and financial advice (like this post on how to attract money, you’re welcome!).

The moment of truth is here… which zodiac sign is the meanest?

12. Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Whenever Scorpios come into the conversation, people’s usual reaction is that they are evil. But this comes due to the lack of understanding of the depth that all Scorpios possess.

They are the zodiac sign which is highly aware of darkness and evil.

Their sometimes rude outside personality is often a cover-up for the deep sensitivity and compassion they feel for the world.

Rare are the Scorpios who will let you see that part of themselves, and if they do, you can be sure that you deserved their trust on many, many levels.

When they allow their dark side to come up, it can be a disaster for anyone on the receiving end.

They can obsess and have dark fantasies of revenge. They are usually straightforward and will tell you the things that you least want to hear about yourself.

When Scorpios allow themselves to view their sensitivity as strength; when they allow themselves to soften and trust that the world can be benevolent, people see real value.

what zodiac sign has the worst attitude

Which zodiac sign gets angry easily?

The zodiac signs most prone to anger are Taurus and Leo. They are both known for their hot temper and expressive nature. 

This doesn’t mean they are mean or unpopular, quite the contrary. They both have genuine personalities which is refreshing in a world where most people hide behind a mask.

In fact, I ranked Leo in the top 3 best zodiac signs in my post Which Zodiac Sign Is The Best.

What zodiacs don’t get along?

There is usually friction between Scorpio and Gemini. Leos and Capricorns are usually not a match made in heaven either. Leos and Taurus tend to fight because of their fiery personalities. 

What zodiac signs make bad friends?

Taurus needs a lot of alone time to recharge which is bad news if you’re an extrovert and love spending all your time with friends. They can also be quite stubborn.

Another stubborn sign is Aries. They can also be quite self-centered at times, leaving their friends feel ignored.

which zodiac sign is the most hated


The truth of the matter is, we all have the ability to display various character traits from all of the 12 zodiac signs.

The most important thing though, is how we really feel on the inside and our intentions.

A person who is rude and blunt from the outside might have genuine intentions on the inside, while another person who is nice and quiet on the outside may cover up his deeply twisted intentions.

We have the innate ability to express any trait, positive or negative, in each moment of our lives.

We can all choose to go down the dark and mean road. Also, we can all choose to go down the path towards the good.

I hope you enjoyed this post and that it answered what zodiac sign is the meanest, in general. 

As an end note, I’ll leave you with the following quote:

“Don’t search for heaven and hell in the future. Both are now present. Whenever we manage to love without expectations, calculations, or negotiations, we are in heaven. Whenever we fight, hate, we are in hell.”

– Shams Tabrizi
