Zodiac Abusiveness Ranking (Least to Most)
Least Abusive to Most Abusive Star Signs
Are you surprised by this ranking? Don’t worry; we’ll dig into the specifics of why we ranked these Zodiacs this way in further detail below.
Capricorn is a people pleaser who doesn’t want to rock the boat or cause any harm. While Capricorn certainly has the ability and cunningness to manipulate others, it is rare that they ever pull this weapon from their arsenal. Every word that others say to Capricorn weighs heavy on their mind, and for a long time. These natives will overthink everything, and this can put them in a sad place. Because of this, Capricorn is usually the least abusive sign of all the zodiacs.
Libra simply wants balance and harmony in the world. They do everything in their power not to cause harm to others, and they simply want peace. Libras can be passive-aggressive if they wish but rarely choose this path. Libras don’t like to feel angry, so they regularly shut negativity out and instead choose happiness. Unfortunately, not choosing a side can make Libra a victim. And their desire to not cause harm can make Libra some of the other signs’ favorite punching bag.
Pisces is too empathetic and caring to hurt other people. At least not intentionally.
These natives are more apt to forgive and to forget rather than to choose to fight back, get revenge, or even hold a grudge. At the most, Pisces may develop some catty or passive-aggressive tendencies, but that is the full extent of their abusiveness.
Geminis are probably the most passive-aggressive of all zodiac signs. This internal frustration never goes further than passive aggression though, simply because Gemini is incapable of making up their minds and taking action.
Geminis can fantasize about getting aggressive, telling someone off, getting into a fight, or making a scene. But Geminis also think about shunning the person, ghosting them, or pretending they don’t exist. They will go back and forth between their two sides indefinitely, or at least until too much time has passed for them to make any kind of move.
So, while Gemini may be seething with anger or feel like they may explode, on the outside, Gemini seems like a quiet pacifist who lets everything roll off their back.
Cancers live to test the water around them. Their emotions are a bit unregulated so they try to gauge the energy and feelings around them to center themselves once again. They don’t know how to be or act, and so they are prone to randomly blowing up on people. Cancer doesn’t want to bother others, but their lack of regulation makes it difficult for them to keep their strong emotions and issues to themselves.
Cancer is not physically abusive though. Instead, they yell or snap at others (who often don’t see this coming).
Aquarius feels driven to control those around them, and will manipulate others to get what they want, especially to gain power or authority.
Aquarius think that they are the most capable and intelligent of the group, and feel compelled to over-explain or micromanage others. They can be insensitive and belittle others, often without a second thought or any remorse. Aquarius is wicked smart too, which can make them even more dangerous with their emotionally abusive tactics.
Sagittarius, a seemingly calm sign, always has some level of turmoil and anger boiling under the surface.
These natives believe they are superior to all others, and don’t care to listen to or humor others’ thoughts, ideas, or emotions. They also have a strong ego. If Sagittarius is having a particularly bad day, they are a nightmare to coexist with. They will make unrealistic demands, say hurtful things, demean, degrade, and belittle others with no remorse in order to feel better about themselves and regain their power.
Scorpios are dangerously manipulative people who have the cunning intelligence to be toxic and controlling.
Scorpio also likes violence, and if you cross them, will be happy to completely ruin your life over the pettiest little thing. Scorpio secretly feels delighted when others wrong them because it means they can go over the top to be cruel and get their revenge. Scorpio loves controversy and drama, so adversity is one of their great joys in life. Scorpio is usually emotionally abusive but isn’t afraid to venture off into physically abusive territories too.
Did you call for a master planner? Virgos premeditate every aspect of their lives, and cruelty is no exception. When a Virgo is angered, nothing is out of their boundaries. They will use the deepest cutting insecurities or fears of others to hurt them the most. Virgos don’t fight to win, they fight to completely demolish and break their competition. These natives are judgemental, critical, and observant, meaning that their words are excessively painful.
Whenever possible, Virgo will use other people as pawns to inflict pain and physical violence. While they enjoy the bloodshed, they don’t want to get their hands dirty.
Leo never sets off to be a violent monster, it just happens as a by-product of their impatience and ego. Leo does not control their emotions well and this usually appears as pure rage. They act impulsively and can irreparably damage property, severely hurt themselves, or others. They have no logic when they are angry and are extremely dangerous. Their narcissistic traits are revealed and they should be avoided at all costs as they are very abusive.
Taurus is all muscle and no brain when they feel the heat of anger, disappointment or shame building inside. They don’t think either, they act on impulse and get physical, fast. Taurus skips right over verbal and emotional abuse and goes straight to the physical aspect. They are dangerous, and no one can calm down this raging bull once angry.
Aries is the most dangerous combination of emotional and physical abuse. These people need to win, and they want to win by a landslide. It’s not enough to be the victor, their opponents have to be beaten, bruised, and bleeding as well, literally or figuratively. Aries is terrifying because they start their spree out of impulse, but keep going because they enjoy the carnage and the pain that they are causing. Aries is without a doubt the most abusive zodiac of all, and they aren’t one bit sorry about it.
