Which Is The Best Zodiac Sign? Ranked From Worst To Best 2022

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Zodiac signs provide us with great insight into our personalities.

They are a useful tool for self-discovery and can help us to make the best decisions based on our nature.

Of course, all twelve zodiac signs are amazing in their own right!

But for fun, I am going to rank them from worst to best and explain how I made my choices.

You might be surprised by the results. Before reading, I need you to make a virtual promise not to get too mad at me if your zodiac sign doesn’t rank too highly!

This is purely based on my opinion (which may include some personal bias…)

So let’s dive in: Which is the best zodiac sign?

Which is the best zodiac sign?

What Is a Zodiac Sign?

Zodiac signs, sometimes called astrological signs, are based on the twelve sectors of the ecliptic.

The concept of the zodiac first originated in Babylonian astrology and formed links between human traits and celestial objects. 

Your zodiac sign is directly related to your birthday. Each sign has its distinctive characteristics, some positive, and some… well, not so positive.

Your zodiac sign is just one of many ways to find out about your strengths, weaknesses and mission.

If you really want to get a more holistic view, you should also look at your full birth chart. There are many free birth chart calculators online.

To get the full picture, you should also look at your numerology. I recommend Numerologist’s numerology report as it’s free and personalized.

What Is The Best Zodiac Sign? Ranked From Worst to Best

 In my list of the best zodiac signs, I have considered the good and the bad points of each of the twelve signs and ordered them from worst to best.

Some will find it to be flattering whilst others may want to close their laptop or launch their phone across the room in disgust.

I guess you can’t please everyone!

Let the games begin!

which is the best zodiac sign

Taurus

Apologies to all you beautiful Tauruses out there. I’m sure you will be reading this thinking: “what a load of old bull!” (no pun intended).

Tauruses are born between the dates of April 20th and May 20th. They are ruled by the planet Venus and are highly compatible with Scorpios and Cancers.

So why exactly are they the worst zodiac sign?

Well, for starters, Tauruses tend to have a very stubborn side which frequently makes them impossible to win arguments with.

Although this is a great quality for winning debates, it can be frustrating to the person who is always on the losing side.

Another factor that contributed to Taurus being ranked bottom, is their tendency to be possessive.

They’re that kid who brought toys to school but never let the others have their turn.

The Taurus is represented in Zodiac signs as the Wandering Bull.

They often close up in their worlds and wander around the world in search of happiness and fulfillment. 

Ok enough of berating Tauruses, it’s time to redeem myself by looking at some of their amazing qualities.

A Taurus possesses incredible staying power, which ensures that when they start a project or endeavor, they see it through until they reach satisfaction.

They are patient beings, who have a great appreciation for the arts, nature, and physical pleasure.

If you need practical advice, you’re sure to get it from a Taurus.

They’re not known for beating around the bush and will tell you exactly what they think the best plan of action is.

Despite ranking them 12th in this list, there are no denying Tauruses are amazing people who have all the attributes required to live happy and productive lives, and if they let you get close, they become great friends.

Libra

And the zodiac sign that is going to be second-most angry with me is… Libras!

Let’s get the awkwardness out of the way. I chose Libras as the eleventh best star sign (that sounds better than the second-worst) because of a few reasons.

Firstly, they are very hard to read.

Libras hate confrontation, and this can cause them to dwell on problems, blowing them up in their minds until they become much bigger than if they would have just gotten it off their chest initially.

They are prone to holding grudges against those who have wronged them. I hope this isn’t true in my case!

Libras are born between the dates of September 23rd and October 22nd. They are ruled by the planet Venus and are highly compatible with Aries and Sagittarius.

Luckily, Libras have some pretty incredible qualities which outweigh the negatives.

These diplomatic beings are dedicated to fairness and will do anything to keep the peace.

They love to have balance in their lives and are most happy when they are around friends that they can trust.

Libras are on an endless quest for self-discovery. They enjoy discussions concerning deep topics and absorb knowledge from books.

They walk around the earth with a feeling of lightness that brushes off all negativity.

Fun fact: Libras are known as one of the best zodiac signs in bed, because of their desire to please.

For the same reason, they are also one of the best zodiac signs to date. So if your Tinder match says they are a Libra, you’re in luck!

Sagittarius

Born between November 22nd and December 21st, those with a Sagittarius zodiac sign tend to make promises they cannot keep.

Unreserved with their opinions, they are the kind of person who can’t help but point out the pimple on your nose that you are hoping no one would mention!

They tend to be impatient and dislike theories that don’t align with their common sense.

Despite all that, these wonderful creatures are full of energy and enthusiasm for life, which qualified them into the top 10 best zodiac signs. 

They love to travel to spiritual places, and are wholeheartedly extroverted, making them great companions for an adventure.

Gemini

Next up, we have Gemini. People with this zodiac sign are born between May 21st and June 20th, and they are most compatible with Aquarius and Sagittarius.

Let’s get the negatives out of the way first. Geminis tend to be indecisive and struggle to stick to their decisions. 

They get nervous when under pressure, and this can affect those around them.

It’s not all bad though. Geminis are some of the most gentle and affectionate people you will come across, and they genuinely have a heart of gold.

“Geminis extremely fast learners and when they feel at ease, they come up with creative ideas through their unique way of thinking.”

Pisces

Now that we’re getting into the middle section of the list, hopefully, Pisces won’t be too displeased with their ranking in the best zodiac signs.

Pisces are often considered the old souls of the zodiacs and are born between the dates of February 19th and March 20th.

If you want to know if YOU are an old soul, then check out my article 50 Clear Signs You’re An Old Soul

Perhaps their worst quality is their tendency to make themselves into victims, and dwell in unhappiness.

Introverts by nature, they like to escape from the real world and instead cut themselves off, which can be a nightmare for close friends and family.

If you are an introvert and are dreaming of working from home, you might find this article the inspiration you need.

Conversely, they have some quite wonderful qualities too.

Pisces are usually brilliant artists and communicate their deep feelings through creative outlets like music, writing, or painting.

They are also very gentle beings, and always think the best of people.

They are also known for being one of the best looking signs of the zodiac.

This is something I definitely agree with as my Pisces boyfriend is an absolute snack!

Aquarius

Those with the Aquarius zodiac sign are most compatible with Leos. They are born between January 20th and February 18th.

These people have a hard time facing up to their emotions, which can cause them to become detached from the real world.

They can also be rigid in their views and unwilling to compromise if they don’t agree with another’s perspective.

However, Aquarius zodiac signs are also undeniably original. 

They march to the beat of their drum, and as a result, can create things that others could only dream of.

They can sometimes appear shy and reserved, but when they want to, they will take center-stage and wow the crowd.

Cancer

People with the zodiac sign Cancer are born between June 21st and July 22nd.

The drawbacks of these people only become apparent when they fall into a bad mood.

When this occurs, they can become pessimists, overlooking the good in their lives and focusing solely on the bad aspects.

At their worst, they can manipulate others to get what they want.

But at their best, they are amazing human beings with vivid imaginations and unwavering loyalty!

Cancers feel their emotions strongly and this makes them brilliant friends who will tell you exactly what they are thinking at the moment. 

Capricorn

Get out your popcorn, because now we’re getting into the top 5 best zodiac signs. 

Capricorns are people born between December 22nd and January 19th. I am a Capricorn, and although I would love to be the best zodiac sign, I think there are zodiac signs with better sets of qualities. 

Their negative qualities are few and far between, but they are prone to having a superiority complex and believing they know everything about, well, everything (like which zodiac signs are the best…).

Capricorns also tend to expect the worst, but this also helps them in a way.

They transform their pessimism into practicality and are highly disciplined, responsible people who have incredible self-control and rarely allow others to lead them astray

Their ambitious personality means they are one of the zodiac signs most likely to attract money and success into their life.

However, they need to make sure they are actually following what their soul wants, and not what society expects them to do. You can find out your soul’s path here.

Aries

People with Aries zodiac sign are born between the dates of March 21st and April 19th.

They suffer from a short-temper and can be difficult to be around if they are frustrated or in a bad mood.

They also have a tendency to follow their impulses without considering the consequences.

But, Aries redeem themselves with their incredible courage in the face of adversity.

They are also very honest people who can are great to confide in.

When they are in good form, Aries are optimistic and enthusiastic about life in general.

They are highly organized people who work hard to achieve their goals.

Their happiness depends on finding their passion and giving it their all. 

Scorpio

Now we’ve reached the top three best zodiac signs. Hopefully, you haven’t gotten too upset and are still reading this post!

Scorpios are born between October 23rd and November 21st.

Their only bad qualities are that they can slip into distrust, and be skeptical of other people’s motives, even if the other person is being sincere.

Pushed to their limits, they can become consumed by jealously and express this through rage or anger.

On the other hand, Scorpios are some of the bravest people around.

Their passion for life is contagious, and they are extremely loyal to their close friends, to the point where they would put themselves at risk to protect someone they hold dear.

scorpio

Virgo

The runner-up in our list of the best zodiac signs is Virgo. Born between August 23rd and September 22nd, Virgos are highly compatible with Pisces and Cancers.

Their negative points include overly worrying, retiring into shyness, and taking life too seriously.

This can cause Virgos to become distant from other people. They tend to be reluctant to form close bonds.

To counteract that, these people are unbelievably loyal to the people they do choose to let in.

They are also driven; hardworking and kind to everyone they meet.

So… who is the best zodiac sign among all then? Drum roll, please…

Leo

It’s unanimous – the award for the best zodiac sign goes to… Leos!

Born in the summer months between July 23rd and August 22nd, Leos are fascinating people.

Although they can come across as arrogant, lazy, and self-centered, their positive attributes more than makeup for these pitfalls.

If this sounds familiar, starting a solid routine will likely be of great value to you.

When a Leo is in good spirits, they are highly creative beings who inspire others to share their innate passion for life.

They are always making people laugh, and keeping the spirits high. Leos are the type of person who pays for your drinks all night when you’ve forgotten your purse or wallet. 

So if you are a Leo, congrats, you are the best zodiac sign!

Which zodiac sign is the smartest?

Scorpio and Aquarius are considered the smartest zodiac signs. They are highly intelligent, analytical, and hard-working, qualities essential for excelling in science, math, and other intellectual fields.

Which zodiac signs can fight?

Taurus and Leo are the zodiac signs most likely to engage in a fight, due to their fiery, passionate nature. 

Leos especially, can get very dramatic and triggered if you have hit a vulnerable spot.

Taurus is less so but tends to be stubborn and quick to defend themselves. 

If you get into a fight with a Leo, remain calm and apologize if you realize you are in the wrong or are partly to blame.

What is the perfect zodiac sign?

Leo is considered the best zodiac sign, because of their generosity and their passion for life, which can be contagious.

Virgo and Scorpio also tend to rank high. No zodiac sign is perfect though, as they all have their flaws and benefits.

Conclusion

I hope that you had fun reading this list and that it answered your question of which is the best zodiac sign. Hopefully without becoming too offended, or big-headed due to the results.

Zodiac signs are a great way to find out more about yourself, and the knowledge can be implemented into your everyday life to maximize your strengths and avoid situations that are likely to make you feel bad.

If you don’t feel like this resonated, consider having a moon reading.

    well, I really enjoyed while reading your opinion about all the zodiac signs.
    and the way you ranked all the signs, also giving some light on there personality was “Amazing”!
    I also saw you ranked Leos as the best zodiac sign of all….
    And guess what I’m a Leo too.
    I’m really happy that somehow you managed to write your opinion about all the signs not worrying about anyone but you wrote the truth, and I’m IMPRESSED.
    I do appreciate you but I also want to know your zodiac sign too.
    It was really nice replying you,
    Thankyou.

    1. Julia Lundin

      Hi Noor, congrats on being the “best” zodiac sign! I am a Capricorn 🙂

    2. Allie

      I did not expect it to be Leo and I”m a Leo! On Google, when I search up things about zodiac signs it seems that Leos are arrogant, stubborn, selfish, and bossy people but on here the way people think about Leos is completly different! Also, my best friend Jade is a Taurus I”m glad that Taurus and Leos get along well. My sister is Aquarius and she is very smart and she loves art so everything about Aquarius is true. My little cousin is an Aries.

      1. Zack

        I’m a Gemini, and I think that zodiac sign really matches me and everything I searched up about zodiac signs really seem to match the zodiac sign that I’m looking for, but sometimes it doesn’t, I think that’s because a zodiac sign can have different traits so maybe your not stubborn but passionate and have the best zodiac sign.

    3. Dilpreet

      I didn’t expect that Leo is the best sign but I’m a Leo but it really doesn’t matter about your zodiac,but mostly your personality and attitude.

  2. Maverick

    I’m a Aries and I believe every statement you made it was all true

  3. Shawn Williams

    My guess was Leo as well

  4. Leoboi

    Hey Great Post! As a leo I appreciate you knowing we’re the best! Keep up the solid work. One day we will live in a world of leos only. The revolution is coming!

  5. Abby

    1. AVNEET

      Same bro

  6. Emmanuel

    And you are doing the best! I Love taurus but the person who did this nailed it you are one stubborn bull. but still have the biggest hearts and will do absolutely anything to help a person.

  7. Emmanuel LA

    LOVE IS LOVE and if you can’t love the dents in your life then you cant love the smoothed path to be.

  8. Cherry Aggarwal

    I’m a gemini and I found it very much true for me

    1. Gabi C.

      I’m a Gemini too, but Geminis are very practical and have very logical common sense. The do very well under pressure from my own and others’ experiences. I do believe Scorpio should have been further down the list. Most of my friends have Scorpio siblings and they all get very disloyal very easily. They love to gossip and spread rumors, which has gotten innocent people in deep trouble too many times before.

  9. No

    I BET THIS BITCH IS A LEO AND IS TRYING TO MAKE HERSELF LOOK COLLER IN THE MOST ‘PROFESSIONAL WAY’ EVER. lol

    1. Julia Lundin

      The big reveal… I’m actually Capricorn! 🙂 Tried to stay unbiased.

    2. idont have a name

      she is a capricorn

    3. Dolores

      YEAH SO TRUE

  10. Peter Carlson

    I’m a Leo and I believe everything stated in this article was absolutely true! It’s so fascinating to read about how signs are viewed or described by professionals.

  11. Diamond

    Thank you Emmanuel for the kind words. May God bless and show you favor. Love from a Taurus.

  12. Selena

    I’m a scorpio and that was spot on true!

    1. Troy

      Same

  13. Nerdy_fox

    Hola! Good job!! I’m a virgo and virgos are always on top! Leos are good too.. but scorpio is a little bit confusing.

  14. I ain’t saying my name

    I respectfully disagree hunny I am Libra I am not difficult Ahem I am actually the second best sign the first best sign is Sagittarius it’s my opinion anyways I feel very offended so pls watch your mouth honey 🙂 I am kind loving supportive beautiful and don’t get mad when I say beautiful I’m just having confidence in myself if you don’t mind I do think I’m smart I actually am very smart I try to fix any problem even if it’s a tiny or big problem cause people say I’m a drag in problems but it’s still a problem and it’s my job to fix it 🙂 so next time go find a Libra and study on them more :/

    1. im not saying my name either

      this is just based on his opinion and his personal experience alright, so if you can’t accept someone’s opinion then just leave.

  15. Faa

    Scorpio here. I agree w everything here except the Leo part. Let’s just agree to disagree. I don’t see them in such a good light. Capricorns are my fav!

    1. Julia Lundin

      As a Capricorn, I’m very happy with your opinion 🙂

      1. Caleb

        As a Capricorn as well, Thank you, because I have much self doubt.

    2. I’m a Capricorn as well. Although, after a bunch of research, not a single zodiac fits my personality. Not even what people say about Capricorns. Although, I was born at near midnight of the 19th of January, so I think I’m a mix of Capricorn and Aquarius. I’ve also met no one with any personality alike to mine. What does this mean?

      1. Rei

        That’s mean this zodiac thing is nonsense. You are free to read, but don’t take it seriously. As for me, I just read this for fun. After all, you are yourself, you have your own unique personality. Don’t let these things bother you.

  16. Jessica

    People who put virgo, cancer and capricorn on top… their opinions doesnt matter

  17. Nikhil negi

    I am scorpion and a shy personality ,i mean i overthink about result also but why you said that scorpion are the on of the bravest sign.

    1. Julia Lundin

      You may have heard the saying that our biggest weakness is what we will overcome in this life. For example, I’ve always been very shy so I never thought I would make a living as an influencer and Youtuber in the future, but I overcame my fear and now I’m comfortable in the public eye. Perhaps you will overcome your fears too and become incredibly brave?

    2. Anonymous

      Your moon sign might be in cancer or pisces.

  18. Joey

    I’m a Gemini and totally agree with this! I also know a Leo and they definitely deserve the recognition!

  19. Zo

    It is an opinion, actually. As an Aquarian, I do believe Leos are the best but I strongly believe that the other signs are just as important, too. We are all individuals and I don’t think the world would be much better if everyone were a Leo. The article isn’t quite amazing, either. I’m sure there were at least a few people who were offended, or took it personally. Try to focus more on being the fun, creative Leo that you are rather than being arrogant.

  20. Xcaliber

    Is it bad to be a taurus 🙁

    1. hello

      No, i am one and I think it is fine. It just our opinion

  21. miral

    YESSSS BABBYYYY LEOS ARE THE BEST

  22. ZRose

    I think it still depends on the individual. I am a Sagittarian and I am nothing like what you have described. I am dependable, kind, dependable, loving, caring, smart, dependable and I like differences. I thrive on change and difference among other things. My mom was a Leo and she was the best mother!

  23. fiona

    I’m a Sagittarius and yes correct with the info

  24. unknown

    I’m a gemini

  25. Nanya nanya business

    It’s true what u said about all the signs but I don’t like the way u ranked them honey I think ♌ should be one the worst of the signs out there

    1. Harley

      Bruh I’m Leo ♌!!!!!!

      1. Camden

        Ima leo too!!!

  26. John Paul Bauer

    I am an Aries. All of the other websites I have visited have said “Aries is the worst” or “Aries is on of the worst.” I appreciate you ranking for Aries, and believe that everything that you have said is true. And Thank You for making Leo #1. Percy Jackson is a Leo, and I idolize him! (Btw I know he is not real. I also find it funny that he stabbed the god who my zodiac sign is literary shares it name with.) (Ares)

  27. Anonymous

    I totally agree with everything you said and even though my star sign wasn’t in the top 5 I definitely agree with putting Leo on top, all the Leo’s I know are just amazing and definitely deserve the recognition. Thanks for this. Xx

  28. BTS' Hufflepuff ARMY

    I’m a Virgo, and everything that you had said about Virgos is true. But honestly, I used to be an extremely open person and it was the easiest to make a friend out of me. While some people considered me as “just a friend”, I used to view them as the bestest (best of best) friends, and that’s how I ended up getting hurt, left out, backstabbed and what not. This is what you get for being loyal ig. But rn, I’m pretty picky. I can call or consider someone as a “friend”, but I don’t let myself getting attached to them on a spiritual level. I have a few BFFs, but they make me feel left out and hurt me several times. Whether it’s intentional or not, I won’t make the same mistake by letting them come closer to my heart. There are only a few people whom I actually love and trust, and am willing to sacrifice myself if necessary, knowing that they would had done the same for me. Sorry for such a long lecture lol, I just haven’t had a proper conversation for a while

  29. Hot head

    I a Capricorn with a Leo friend and a Virgo I glad my friend was on the list!

  30. Henry Heart ♥️

    I’m a Leo ♌️ and it’s true. We are like that. That’s how Leos are…
    Recently I went out with my ex girlfriend with her 2 friends and yes I paid for everything we went to a club pay the entrance and bottle service we went to eat after and then we got a hotel and had breakfast the next day and we all had a good time and I paid for everything without asking a dollar to none of them what we do for others it comes from our heart ♥️ and yes we are always laughing and making people laugh. We are the center of the attraction. If you have a Leo take care of it and don’t let them go and don’t betray them because after you betray a Leo ♌️ I’m sorry we are gone. And thanks 🙏 for describing us exactly how we are as leo ♌️

  31. Geneva Espinoza

    I personally feel this was pretty accurate and fun to read. Although I am an Amazing Aquarius (January 25th), and biased as well lol everything you said about each was pretty spot on.

  32. Anomanus

    I’m. A Aquarius ♒

  33. :)

    I think that it’s very good to share your opinion! In my opinion, there are many different personalities to each of the zodiacs and people may not relate to their zodiac sign.
    For example, I have a father who is a Leo and he is very intelligent, shy, and loves nature. Unlike Leo stereotypes, he isn’t too brave and doesn’t enjoy the spotlight.
    As for my mom, she is a Libra. She is very friendly and is like an open book. Unlike her zodiac stereotype, she is not that indecisive; she knows exactly what she wants but will also sacrifice it if she feels someone else needs it more. She is very dedicated and hard-working. She is a strong woman.
    The only person in my family that I think matches thier sign the most is my younger sibling… he is shy and sensitive like his sign, Cancer. He cries easily but also forgives often. He loves home and his loved ones, he is very loyal.
    I am also a Cancer, however, I love to be outside and visit new places unlike the home-loving Cancer. I do not cry too much, and I am extroverted and love to be around people outside. Many of my friends say my personality is more of a Leo, and I can mostly agree
    To sum this up I have to say that zodiac signs don’t completely define you, and you should never judge someone solely on their sign– try to get to know them before judging on their zodiac sign, because in my experiences, it really depends on the type of person they are, not always their sign! 🙂
