Negative Astrology Sign Characteristics

Learn the Negative Astrology Characteristics

Many, many articles have been written to help people understand the characteristics of the signs of the Zodiac. Most discuss the positive traits of each sign, but wherever we have good, we have bad. We could not understand cold if we did not have hot. We would not recognize love if we never experienced hate. So too there are opposite traits evident in each of the astrological signs. Just as we have discussed all the positive characteristics of each sign, the negative characteristics should be discussed as well. So let’s take a look at those difficult traits, but not in a mean-spirited way. In a spirit of fun. Feel free to share some of your experiences in the comments below.


• Self-Centered

• Poor Planner

• Hot-Tempered

Since Aries is the first Zodiac sign, Aries people are astrological babies. That is why everything is about “me, me, me.” You could be dying and your Aries companion will still be going on and on, not even noticing you are having a problem. They are a bit self- absorbed and do not really listen to other people when they are speaking. Do not be surprised when you ask their opinion about whatever your important dilemma and just get a blank look. Aries people do not understand the concept of forethought, so they never plan ahead. It’s up to whoever they are with at the time to make plans or prepare for contingencies. Aries people say whatever is on their minds; they just blurt things out before they think. They have bad temper tantrums. Then they cannot understand what is wrong with you and why you are upset with them. They think they are right all the time.


• Lazy

• Stubborn

• Passive-Aggressive

Taurus Negative Astrology Sign Characteristics

Taurus is ruled by the Bull, and bulls mostly like to rest in the shade of a nice tree for long periods each day. So your Taurus friend is a tad lazy, and will try to get by with doing as little work as possible. If they can get someone else to do it, that’s even better. Taurus people like to get their own way, and will not budge an inch. They are as stubborn as mules. But since gentle Venus is their ruler, they go about it so sweetly they can catch you unaware. And if they do not want to do a certain thing, be prepared for the passive aggressive approach. They are masters at it. Taureans will act really kind, give you that calm smile, and gently continue not doing whatever it is they were supposed to do. Taurus people have a great love of beauty, art, music, and the opposite sex. But they tend to try to ignore the harsher realities of life, and guess who has to face them? You. Because you are so good at whatever it is. See, I told you they would try to charm their way around it.


• Can't keep secrets

• Fickle

• Superficial

Gemini people love to talk, talk talk. If you have a secret, do not tell them, unless you want the whole world to know. Geminis have quick minds and both think and talk about several subjects at one time. This can be confusing to the other people listening, as it is hard to be sure which subject they are talking about when. It can be very hard to keep up, and it will annoy them if you are having trouble. Gemini people are normally in a hurry and do things fast. This gives them nervous stomachs and sometimes headaches, because they are thinking and doing too many things at once. They will be cranky when their minds get frazzled. Also, be aware they are not opposed to telling the occasional white lie if you find out they exposed your secret, or if they slipped and said the wrong thing and do not want to take responsibility for it. Geminis can be fickle and superficial.


• Needy

• Sensitive to criticism

• Hold grudges

It’s only 6 p.m., and your Cancer friend has already checked in with mom for about the fifth time today. Learn to get used to it, or maybe just include mom in more of your activities. It’s just easier that way. Cancer people are kind and understanding. They will give you all their attention as they listen to your problems, but they expect the same from you. They do not take criticism well at all. If you want to give them advice and you think they are approaching an issue the wrong way, choose your words very carefully. Cancers never forget it if you offend them or someone they love. I hate to say they hold grudges, but they hold grudges. Also, never make a negative comment about their children or loved ones. They can do it, but don’t you dare. They are also big worriers, and can drive you up the wall with all the little things they worry about. They are prone to getting sick easily and require rest, so do not wear them out. It’s mostly because they are so emotional; they just drain themselves. Their moods change, like their sign's ruler, the Moon, moves into new signs every 2 ½ days. Buy one of those astrological calendars and keep track. Then you will understand the behavior pattern. Keep a journal too!


• Self-centered

• Stubborn

• Arrogant

Leo people act very regal. In fact, sometimes forget they are not really royalty. They are always late when you make plans to go out with them. This is annoying, because your time is valuable too. They love to make a grand entrance because they are such drama queens. Leos are generous and like to throw parties, but it is usually after they have just bought some expensive new toy or room full of furniture. The party is really just an opportunity for them to show it off, not because they want to see you. Like their Lion symbol, Leos love to rest and feel that others should cater to them and do most of the work. This is another fixed sign, so they are also very stubborn and do not like to change their minds. They love to advise others on hairstyles, clothing, home improvement projects, and career, but sometimes forget others have different opinions. It is difficult for a Leo to understand that not everyone thinks the way they do and will not always agree with them. Their arrogance and self-centered attitude can get old fast.


• Obsesses on details

• Hypochondriac

• Perfectionist

Virgo people are big, big talkers. They can chat away all night. The problem is that they talk about very trivial matters that can drive you crazy. If you go out to lunch, the Virgo can take 15 minutes to compare two kinds of salad dressings and will expect you to sit and listen. They are intelligent and witty, so they can be fun, but they just cannot stop talking when their minds grab onto something. They are big worriers and hypochondriacs and will also worry about chemicals and ingredients of medications. They're likely take about 20 kinds of vitamin supplements for all sorts of reasons, deciding they are safe because they are “natural.” Even so, they will have lyme disease, heart palpitations, shortness of breath, and several other health-related problems every day. Never let them read medical books or see commercials about any disease, or they will think they have that too. Virgos vent about the things they need to do, instead of just doing them. The issue is that by the time they waste so much time venting, the work or problem could have been finished. Some Virgos can seem prissy. They are always very neatly dressed. In a working environment, every document must be perfect, every folder in order, and each paper clip in place. Virgos insist on a neat and clean environment, but they lack the sense to see that some situations do not require so much attention. They are too critical, as we cannot all be as perfect as they are.


• Passive-aggressive

• Vain

• Irresponsible with money

Libra people are also ruled by Venus, so they want life to be pleasant and for their days to pass by smoothly. This is nice, but they will hold in their feelings if you do something to upset them because they want to avoid what could be an unpleasant conversation. They do not want to rock the boat. Their sense of balance is important to them. Because Libra people want to fit in and be liked, they are easily influenced and must learn they should not always go along with the crowd if it is wrong for them. They have a deep love of beauty, and both the men and women love fashion and nice clothing. This also means they will flirt with anyone they think looks good. They also like good furniture and like to live in beautifully decorated homes. They can be manipulative, because behind all that sweetness and light they like to be the leaders of whatever is going on without coming right out and saying so. The women can be slaves to fashion to the point where their shoes are hurting their feet and posture and they are running up huge clothing bills. They believe they deserve the best and have no qualms about not keeping to a budget. They know if they need more money, somebody will bail them out. They get very upset if you disagree with them and may accuse you of “screaming” at them, even though you may have just expressed a different opinion. Libra people also like to show off.


• Super stubborn

• Competitive

• Secretive

Scorpio people may have the most fixed opinions of all. Disagree with them on something dear to their hearts, and you will be the recipient of the famous “icy glare.” It’s like a death ray. To say they are strong-willed is an understatement. Determination is their middle name. Scorpios are very competitive, although they may not seem that way at first. They cover it well. They are usually secretive, have a dark side, and are obsessed with death. They are possessive and jealous in love relationships. When they are interested in any subject, they will research it so they know every last detail. This is the reason so many of them are research scientists. Many of them are vegetarians or some kind of picky eater, so it is hard to go out with them. The Scorpio believes the whole group has to cater to their likes and dislikes, and thus always eat at the place of their choice. They are also very frugal, so do not expect them to chip in extra for the check if you go out. They are blunt in speech, but have tender feelings themselves. They will also hold a grudge, insisting they are not holding a grudge. They are individualists and do not care what other people think. They live life on their own terms.


• Blunt

• Klutzy

• Overly optimistic

There are two kinds of Sag people: the talkative ones and the very quiet ones. They all are intelligent and interested in higher education, philosophy, different cultures, and such. Most of them love to travel. When they do speak, they are very blunt and get right to the point—sometimes not realizing they hurt feelings along the way. They like sports, especially outdoor ones, but are very klutzy and reckless, and often break bones and hurt themselves. They are almost annoyingly optimistic. They are likely to cheat on you. They will get involved in many causes trying to save the world, but they can have so many petitions going and meetings to attend that they get frazzled and exhaust themselves. Sagittarians think big and like to leave the little details to other people. Sag people always get in philosophical arguments with others and it is hard for them when others have different views. They are freedom-loving people though, and will not like it if anyone tries to clamp down on their activities or freedoms. Try not to talk about politics or religion with them.


• Ambitious

• Workaholics

• Easily embarrassed

Capricorn people are generally serious and will not appreciate it if you are joking around about something that is meaningful to them. They are very ambitious people and may engage in social climbing, so do not be hurt if your Capricorn friend dumps you to hang around with someone who can help them. If they are the principal of a school, they most likely want to be the superintendant of the district one day. If they are going to town meetings to advocate their views, they have their eye on a council seat or the mayor’s job. They are workaholics and do not like to be spontaneous. They do not like to take risks unless they are very well-calculated. Although Capricorns are emotional, they dislike public displays of emotions and will die of embarrassment if you take them out to dinner on their birthday and tell the waiters to bring a cake and sing. They hate to be involved in scenes of any kind. These are people who always think ahead and want to be in charge. Your relationship with a Capricorn will go smoothly as long as you understand they are very ambitious and are always thinking years ahead of everyone else.


• Annoyingly non-conformist

• Don't like rules

• Can seem aloof and uncaring

Aquarius people are always nonconformists and if you try to tell them what to do, they will act even more outrageous just to annoy you. They love the attention it brings them and are usually living in the future already. If you do not like to try new things and take risks, an Aquarius will be hard for you to understand. They change like lightning and barely understand themselves. These are people who think rules are for other people. They need a lot of freedom, as they bore easily. An Aquarius mind is a stubborn one, but since they enjoy freedom so much they understand when other people want to do things their own way too. Aquarians have unusual friends from all walks of life. If this makes you uncomfortable, these are not the companions for you. They love to try out new personas all the time. They may insist they love you madly, then they will forget your birthday or forget to call you. Aquarius people can come across as aloof and uncaring.


• Dreamy

• Poor judgement

• Easily led

Pisces people are the dreamers of the Zodiac. As the last sign, they are the most complex people. Having been through every incarnation in all the other Astrology signs, they understand most of what anyone confides in them. But being so dreamy, they do not really offer good advice. Water signs, and Pisces in particular, need to be careful with drugs and alcohol. They are easily led and are followers, not leaders. Restless and bored, they often start new projects or interests and then abandon them. They are very kindhearted but must be careful they do not let others take advantage of them. Pisces people also do not like to handle serious affairs, having a bit of a Peter Pan complex. they like to leave the details to others. They often get scammed because they want to help others, but do not always use good judgment. Pisces rules the feet, and many of them have tons of pairs of shoes. Go ahead, check out their closets.

Scorpios can go both ways. That's why they are symbolized by the Eagle, Snake and Phoenix. The difficult ones are snakes. The Eagles will be almost tender about something or someone they care about. The Phoenix can rebuild a life after it's been ruined. Sorry you got one of the harder ones. If you are still together, and tell him how much it hurts you, he may stop. Thanks for reading and commenting, and good luck to you. Water signs are still good for you, try a Cancer or Pisces!

You were spot on with the way you delivered these signs. I'm a Capricorn and everything you said about us is true. I happened to be engaged to a Scorpio and you were spot on about his sign too. I agree with Karthikash, about Scorpio being one of if not the most vengeful sign out of all the Zodiacs. My Scorpio holds serious grudges; and even if you apologize profusely, he still brings up things from the past.

Hello Val,

I can do two astrology charts, but they cost $85.00 each. Also, an astrology lif e chart is more about who you are, how others see you, and how you feel about all the different issues and relationships in your life. Sometimes people feel they don't give specific info for one question like that. If you want, a Tarot reading may be the way to go, I charge $35.00 for those. All of these readings are time consuming and a lot of work, since I don't use computer sites, I do it with books and interpret myself. Thanks for reading my hubs. Let me know if you want a Tarot reading.

Hello Stellar Lover,

Yes, I am interested in Edgar Cayce, I've read a lot about him. As far as Astrology is concerned, I also interpret how important a planet is by it's distance from other planets, the house it's in, and by what other planets it makes aspects to. So many aren't aware that astrology is more than the sign the Sun was in at a particular time, or that all the planets and other issues affect a horoscope.

As far as Cayce is concerned, I believe he got more info from his trance states. Thanks for reading and commenting.

StellarLover 4 months ago

I noticed in another article that you seem to respect Edgar Cayce's work. As you probably know, Cayce's guidance talked a fair amount about astrology. Contrary to the modern movement of pop astrology, Cayce's guidance didn't put much focus on Zodiac Signs for the most part, but rather most of the emphasis was put on Planetary indications.

Sometimes they called the Signs, the wavering indications, and it seems to be inferred that these were more linked to the fleeting, personality level of self, rather than the more stable/consistent level of mind and deeper character.

Many ancient astrological cultures, also emphasized planetary strengths rather than Signs.

My own experience as a long time astrologer, and my own case, bears out that often Planetary indications are a more important and powerful factor than Signs to look at. For example, I have Sun and Mercury in Capricorn, but Jupiter is pretty highlighted in my chart--in my 1st House, conjunct traditional ruler of the Nadir (one of the Angles/power points of the chart), and is trine Sun and Mercury (w/ Merc, less than a degree of separation), etc.

Then Neptune is fairly highlighted, and with Pisces S. Node, the combo of which makes me feel and act in many ways, both far more Jupitarian and to slightly lesser extent, Piscean like. (Pisces is ruled by Jupiter and Neptune).

Never have been materialistic or materially ambitious as Capricorns are often described, always have been philosophical, metaphysical, and spiritual oriented. Always have been very "universal" oriented, which is interesting because Cayce's guidance said that the Consciousness level that Jupiter represents is that of Universal Consciousness. I've also been told by sensitives that can see aura's, that I have a lot of purple in my aura, which I've long associated with Jupiter.

Anyways, thought I would put out that often Signs are more a wavering, or "outer life" indication rather than related to deep seated, deeper, more consistent character traits. I have noticed that some people do associate or identify more with their Zodiac signs, especially Sun, Ascendant, and/or Moon, but these tend to be younger souls, or the Planets most highlighted vibe with the major Sign indications, so it's hard to tell if it's really the Signs, or the Planetary indications being highlighted. (For example, an Aries Sun, whom also has Mars very highlighted).

Hello sjxjxkx,

This is a good question and something people don't usually pick up on. Opposite signs often have a lot of the same traits. They may act them out a bit differently, but the opposite signs want the same things. Both are fixed signs, so you don't change your mind a lot, but need a lot of proof before you make a decision.

Also, you may have other planets or your Moon in Scorpio. But don't worry about it, what you say is valid.

I don't like computer Astrology sites, but Café Astrology is one of the better ones if you want to see where your other planets are. Thanks for writing in. Best Wishes.

Hello gmwilliams,

Thanks for adding some new info to this article. I always found it interesting it's one of my most visited, even though it is about the negative traits of the signs. I had fun writing it though. People don't often comment on my work, I guess because I write in an informational style a lot of the time.

I'm a Cancer Sun, Capricorn Moon, Scorpio Ascendant. I was born on my Mom's B-day, the 4th of July, and after she passed, stopped celebrating it for a long time. I began again, you really can't get away from that day. She used to call me about 10 X a day, also being Cancer, and having the Capricorn Moon, could sometimes feel like a burden, although I loved her and we got along. Losing my husband last year makes me understand how lonely she was. I try harder to get out of the house, and not to make the mistakes she did. My interest in the metaphysical has been helpful, I take a lot of classes, teach some, and lately have come back to writing again. It's a good way to get some of that grief out by being creative. Always a pleasure to see you.

This is a good read on the darker side of the sun signs. Aries can be quite selfish, even infantile in his/her quest to get his/her way. Taurus can be quite sybaritic to the point of debauched hedonism. Gemini can be quite superficial, even sarcastically glib. Cancer can make moroseness into an art form. Leo egotism can be totally out of control. Virgo can play the martyr and use guilt to make others appreciate them. Libra, well........the art of laziness. Scorpio can be quite venomous, making the Devil seems like a sweet angel. Sagittarians run from responsibility...........don't stress me man. Capricorn-well think of Scrooge, he exemplifies the negative Capricorn to a "t". Aquarians can be quite impatient with those they consider to "not get it". And yes, Pisceans can pull the poor me bit......Excellent analysis of the negative/darker aspects of sun signs, Jean. Voted UP!

Hi Jean,

I'm so sorry I did not see where you said your husband had passed. I was using my phone when I read your comment and sent mine and must have not seen the whole message.

I am very sorry for your loss. Wow, 39 years is a long time. I agree with you about how it is healthier for you to do readings for people. I found when going through any rough time, helping someone else or talking helps to take my mind off of what I am going through.

I am glad I was able to help with an idea for your Hub :) That is neat. Yes, I've seen your rant about the weird questions people ask. ha-ha

I have been thinking of what I would like to know. I never really wanted to know about my relationships, because I know myself that I shouldn't be with the people I am. Just like the one I am in now.

Yes, I will get back to you soon on the reading. I am really excited for you about I think that is going to be great!!

Have a great week Jean!

Hi Dawn,

Well, you know where to find me whenever you decide you need me. You've given me an idea for an article when I get all my blog stuff the new way. I never wrote about how to spot scammers in Tarot and Astrology, and that's something interesting that informs, and can save people money. I still write here now and then, I can never seem, to say off HP for long. The people are so nice :).

If you've been on Spritualitypathways, you've likely read my "rant" about the weird questions people ask. Since I put a lot of time into my readings, I don't take on clients if they are asking about a relationship that just began. Well, if it's new, and you want to know if it's going to develop. that's a Tarot reading question. If you've been seeing someone for a decent length of time, you can do something called a composite chart, you take the data of both people, and get a chart for relationship, so it is like a person or entity in it's own right. I don't waste people's or my own time.

Hi Dawn,

I'm reading Tarot and teaching out a business run by a clairvoyant woman I am friends with, and so I am finding more opportunities with that. The blog does give me customers, I have done a lot of Tarot Readings and Horoscopes, but it's a lot of typing, and with carpal tunnel, I am trying to eliminate that.

Also, my husband of 39 yrs. passed on about a year ago, and now it's healthier for me to be out reading for people than to be home behind a computer screen all the time. I'm happy to answer any questions you have. Eventually I will take down Spiritualitypathways. and be I will still feature my most important articles, but it's mostly to get customers for readings. I can still keep most of my writing up on whatever sites they are on. I came into online writing right before that big Google algorithm change, so never made much. But it made me more confident in my writing, and I learned a lot.

Hi Dawn,

Yes, the computerized planetary tables are correct, or if they are wrong, it's only about 1 degree out of the 30 each sign has, so you can safely look those up and see what signs your planets are in. And between here and my blog,, I have articles which explain what a lot of them mean. Café Astrology actually does explain what it means to have a planet in a house, and in an Astrology sign. They just don't modify it together in their interpretations, so that's one of the things that makes them off and incomplete. Astrothemes isn't bad either, but I like the first one better. Café Astrology does a Spiritual profile that is really good, it's only a few dollars, and mine was on target.

It's hard to have your own blog and make money on it, though I do take orders on my blog for readings. But I spent 3 years writing on it, and couldn't build a big enough following, most of my clients are word of mouth. A friend is helping me make a smaller, blog in my name, and I'm going to delete the older blog in a few weeks, once we have the new one set up. So I have the most important articles going on the Wordpress blog, under my name, and people can still get charts or Astrology advice, and share their knowledge too. I just never got the give and take I wanted. Take care.

Jean Bakula 20 months ago from New Jersey Author

Hi Dawn,

Yes, the computerized tables that tell you what signs the planets are in on what day are OK, they are taken from a book called an Ephemeris, that's how I do my charts. The rest of it can change so much from a computerized chart, because they leave out so many factors. It's not that they are wrong about all the info they give, but they leave out planetary positions that alter or completely change the meaning of things for you. I have an article about how to cast your own chart on here somewhere if you are interested. Take care.

Jean Bakula profile image

Jean Bakula 20 months ago from New Jersey Author

Hi Dawn,

Thanks for your kind words. The reason that computerized horoscopes are so off is because they don't take a lot of things into consideration. Every planet and our Moon is in an Astrology sign, not just our Sun. That is reflected in computerized ones, so is your Ascendant, which can only be calculated at your time of birth. Even your Moon sign can be off if you don't know your birth time within about two hours. There are 12 houses of Astrology, and they all have about 3 or 4 meanings. This is where the computerized ones really shirk, they don't discuss that at all, and all your planets are in a house too. So if your Sun was in the 10th house, you would be very career motivated. If your Sun was in the 4th house, your life is your family, but you also have a lovely home, and could do well in real estate or redecorating. The distance the planets are apart are called aspects, and that's very important. Computerized charts don't discuss all of them, or often choose to discuss unimportant ones and leave big ones out of the picture. So Astrology is really very complicated, something I've preached here, but still get naysayers.

I have a lot of articles on my blog, which is listed on all my hubs, if you like reading about Astrology. But I never made much money on it, and gave myself carpal tunnel over it. I do get orders for Tarot readings and Astrology charts, and am considering just getting a smaller Wordpress blog which explains what I do, and stopping writing on my own blog. It's been up for around 4 yrs. now, and the only money I made is thru orders, so I'm trying to decide what to do. If you read computerized sites, the best one I think is CafeAstrology, but even their reports are skimpy. Take care.

Jean, I agree how we all have good and bad points. Probably for the last couple years I have been getting more and more into Astrology. I find it interesting. On your profile, you talk about how the computerized horoscopes are off and I agree with this. Sometimes I get angry when the site will say something bad or good was supposed to happen on a certain day and the exact opposite happens! ha-ha.

Thank you for taking the time to read my work. I got a few good tips on your hub about checking in at airlines, it's been awhile for me, and I'm going to the Caribbean with my son in December.

Hi misterhollywood,

Thanks for stopping by! My son is a Scorpio Sun and Moon, I have a Scorpio ascendant, and everything I'm part of is crowded with Scorpios, I can't get away from them, lol. So I know them well. Best Wishes.

Hi Silva,

Thanks for the visit and for reading the observations. I was hoping people would take it in the spirit it was intended, I didn't want to hurt anybody's feelings. I was tough on my own Sun sign of Cancer too! Take care.

These observations are spot on, with regard to the people close to me: Aries, Cancer, Leo, Pisces, and me (Aquarius). Excellent hub.

Not to worry,

It's only a hobby, I don't plan my life or days around it! Plus people like it. 100 of my hubs are Featured at a time when people are leaving HP in droves because nobody is reading their hubs. Thanks for the visit!

No beef here, But trying to ride your life by reading astrology!! By far! I thought Africans were the only superstitious people, and rightfully so, but this really does change my perspective about the rest of the world. You should never lay so much emphasis on astrology

Many people think only the Sun is in a sign. So your Sun is in Gemini, but your Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are also in signs. There are 12 houses, and they all have at least 5 meanings on different subjects. It matters how far apart the planets were at your time of birth. So even though you are a Sun Gemini, a cluster of planets in Cancer or Taurus (close to the Sun, but not in your sunsign) could account for why it doesn't sound like you. My description sounds like a Gemini one, I have 3 planets there. So you didn't "get" me. Nice try though. That's the issue, most people think the 1/fifteenth of what they know about Astrology is everything.

hahhaha reading astrology is always fun but I don't think we should lay too much emphasis on it. I am a Gemini and nothing could ever be farther from the truth.

These are great (and often funny) descriptions of the negative sun sign characteristics. I found myself smiling at some when I recognized them in others and even myself (since you have planets in other signs). One thing about Virgos (there are a lot of them in my life), they can be critical of others, but they are also often very self-critical.

I enjoyed reading this; voted up and shared.

It's likely a fallacy that the mutable signs get bored in marriage. That would be Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces. I know of many faithful people of those signs. He probably doesn't realize it bothers you when he does things behind your back. Besides the cheating/not cheating thing, most Sag people are very honest, and very blunt. They do not mince words and say what they think. I'm all for optimism, but not too early in the day. I need a cup of coffee first.

Haha, my husband is a Sag ... "They are almost annoyingly optimistic, and likely to cheat on you." I agree about annoyingly optimistic. I haven't been cheated on but he does things behind my back so in the end he contradicts himself.

Hi Carol,

Thanks for visiting, and your opinion means a lot. I didn't want to upset any of the signs!


OMG, now I'm on your BAD side, lol. My son is a Scorpio Sun and Moon, and is a very sweet guy. Although he always gets his way, come to think of it. My husband and I both have Scorpio Ascendants, so we are awful, hermetic people who keep to ourselves. Nobody likes us anyway :).

Hi Tranquilheart,

I have a Virgo friend who I really like, but she does talk about the most minute things for ages. It makes me nuts. (She doesn't go online)!

The owner of the small company I work at is an Aries and my manager is a Virgo. And all that you said is SO TRUE! Good thing I'm a Taurean ;p

nice hub.. I am a Scorpio.. You forgot to tell that we are the most vengeful beings on planet earth. When we are on a vengeful streak, there will be poison everywhere. Nothing is out of bounds for us ;)
