It doesn’t matter how much of a humble or patient sort of person you are – everyone has their breaking point. We all get angry from time to time. It doesn’t necessarily make you a terrible person now, this anger. It’s much like a tower that keeps building itself higher inside you. The more you climb it, the higher it keeps getting. That’s when you lose your sense of patience and humility, hurting those around you in the process.
Astrology offers you a quick glance into the signs’ expression styles of anger. Once you know what ticks them off, you can work at keeping those things out of the routine so their anger remains under check. The trick, after knowing some of these ways of expressing anger, is to find a way to control it.
So, based on their zodiac sign, people express anger in either or all of these ways:
Being one of the fire signs, Aries are quick to anger. They don’t like it when they are not informed of something beforehand, need their time to prepare otherwise they lose their temper. They don’t mostly start fights but know how to end them. Their outbursts of anger are volatile, often surprising those around them.
Think twice about putting the blame on Aries, unless you are completely sure they truly deserve it – they simply can’t stand being called something they are not. Just as quick to anger, Aries are quick to cool it down too. They are also best at being the ‘forgive and forget’ kind.
They rarely get angry, but when they do, it’s really something. Disloyalty, lack of communication and security etc are some of the things that greatly anger them. It takes them a long time to overcome that anger. One way they do so is by trying to talk things out with you. If you do not listen to them, or give them their space and time to figure their head out then that will just anger them more.
So listen to their problems patiently, give them a chance to be understood and their anger will vanish just as swiftly. After things cool down, Taurians mostly forgive – unless you have done something extreme which is unforgivable to them. They will still remain courteous and civil with you after that, but the relationship will least likely go back to how it was before.
Gemini are symbolized by the twins so you might as well flip a coin to tell what they will do or how they will react when in anger. They love to talk, remember that. So when you do or say something to piss them off, be prepared to get chewed by Gemini.
They may seem all calm and collected on the outside but at the same time – being of a dual nature as they are – their words will cut right through, and their harshness might even surprise them. It might start off with sarcasm and rudeness, but might escalate to screaming, yelling and throwing things around. Geminis do not like being told what to do.
So, unless you tell them what to do, their anger will calm down soon enough and things will be back to normal.
Cancerians are generally very loving and caring creatures. And that is all they want in return. So when they feel neglected by you, cheated on or anything of the kind, they will express their anger by sulking in their crabby shell, first and foremost.
If you still do not get the hint, they will stop talking to you altogether. It might turn into an aggressive behavior… if you continuously fail at getting the hints. Mostly they want to talk things out, clear the air even when they push you away. But a Cancer in anger is tired and annoyed, more than anything else.
So when in anger, they feel too tired to be the making the effort henceforth all the pushing and moodiness. And let’s not forget their moodiness. Known to have 6 mood swings a day at the topmost, you will know quickly when a Cancer is angry – their mood will take a turn for the worst. Give them their space and reassure them that they are loved and not neglected like they seem to think and they will instantly forgive and forget.
When it comes to heated arguments and fights with a Leo, it is all about who has got the loudest roar. Almost everything will set them off but their straightforwardness will certainly let you know on spot.
Common expressions of anger of Leos include kicking, screaming, raving, throwing things around and making quite a spectacle of it all, in short. Also, expect them to say some mean and hurtful things which, by the way, becomes pretty obvious they do no actually mean so do not take them to heart.
All they are doing is trying to get their anger out in the best way they know how to – by venting, that is. Lucky for you, Leos are never the ones to hold grudges so when things cool down, they will quickly forgive and forget the whole thing. Quick to anger, but quick to move past it too. If it is someone they care about a lot, a sincere apology will also come your way from a Leo.
Virgos are among the most kindred spirits ever. They hate nothing more than hurting another soul by their words and actions. Not much gets to them; they can take a lot of abuse and blame and still not get angry or frustrated by it.
However, when they do get angry, it can be so intense you will feel it even from the next room. They do not like confrontations so instead of sticking around long enough and getting it all out and making it worse, they tend to walk away silently and let things settle on their own accord. Their anger cools down by itself, mostly.
But then again, they do not forget easily either. They are less likely to trust that person again though, even after things cool down and they forgive.
They are the peacemakers of the zodiac – which is to say they keep balance in relationships, avoiding outbursts of anger and frustration at all costs. However, at the same time, being among the most sensitive signs, almost anything under normal circumstances can set Libras off.
They tend to bottle things inside, so you will not see much aggressive expressions of anger from a Libra. Even when they do get angry, they might say a select few words but even those are uttered as they leave hurriedly to avoid further conflict and end up making things worse for anyone involved.
Even at the verge of their anger, they tend to keep things inside, think twice and put the sweetest poker face they can come up with. They will forgive easily but if you hurt them badly, they are certainly going to hold a grudge against you. They also tend to make a mental note of things they hate about a certain person or situation or something that angered them and use them against you in the future when it comes down to it.
Spotting the first signs of anger in a Scorpio’s simple: look into their eyes. You’ll see the anger steaming and boiling in there, eyes being the windows to the soul and all. The next thing that will hint to their anger is their silence.
They will grow exceptionally quiet – mostly because they will be planning their next move in the argument, and they do love winning after all. Do not make the mistake of rushing things too soon; give them their space and time to figure it out by themselves first.
Because before they utter a word to you, they will kill you with their anger in their mind. So when things start to get messy, give them time to cool down on their own first. They will certainly forgive you but they will never, ever forget.
It is somewhat rare for a Sagittarius to lose their well-crafted self-control. It embarrasses them later on, when things cool down and they look back on how angry they got, or how they might have hurt the other person unintentionally.
The most important hint to take when a Sagittarius is angry is their excessive use of sarcasm. When they are angry, literally everything they say will be laced with it. Dishonesty, hate speeches and such things mostly anger them.
They have a low patience level so things might get heated pretty fast. They hate creating drama out of boredom, so expect them to clear things out quite neatly once their anger cools down. They are also very generous partners who like to give as much pleasure as they receive.
They are among the earth signs and are mostly easy-going. They care about hard work and the peace at their home most of all. To maintain such order, they usually have some rigidly specific requirements and if someone messes with them, it will incur the wrath of a Capricorn – which is somewhat short-lived.
Sure, they will yell at first for a couple of minutes and make a big fuss about it but then they will cool off themselves. That is because they also tend to bottle things up, especially negative emotions and thoughts such as anger. They sulk instead of letting it all out in a rush of unintended words and actions.
Aquarians really cannot stand the thought of argument and the respective discord it brings, especially when it comes to being stuck in some pointless arguments with stubborn or arrogant people. Because of this reason and their need to stay close to peace and silent things, they are the ones most likely to ignore you when they get angry.
They are the kind who prefers to go for a long drive or a walk around the block to clear their head and heart instead of sticking around and letting their anger out on somebody else. However, this is not to say they do not explode out of sheer frustration and paranoia when they cannot avoid what is irritating them.
With a Piscean, expressing their anger depends on what kind of time you catch them on. If they are already having a bad day, they may explode all of a sudden in a fit, if you anger them. If that is not the case, they will avoid confrontations at all costs. Too much of a hassle for them, in simple terms.
They cannot deal with the harshness that mostly takes hold of these things. Instead, they would much rather go have a drink or a smoke to help calm themselves down and take their mind off of things, rather than sticking around for an argument. Otherwise, they cry it out.
