And the more permissive, humble, and silent kind can actually be full of quiet confidence and personal satisfaction. Here are the least to most confident signs, ranked, and with an explanation for each.

Zodiac Signs Ranked from Least Confident to Most Confident

12. Cancer

Cancer signs are sensitive, highly in touch with their feelings, and overthinkers. When you combine these three traits, you have an anxious, insecure person who feels crushed under the weight of others’ opinions.

They replay scenarios over and over in their minds, slowly convincing themselves that they made a mistake, others don’t like them, and they aren’t good enough. Cancers are hard workers and kind people, who consistently build others up, so this insecurity is almost completely unwarranted. They need love, affection, and reassurance from others to feel comfortable. Cancers love themselves, but that’s not enough. When they’re struggling, they need to learn to reach out to a trusted friend to help them work through their insecurities and get their confidence built back up.

11. Virgo

Virgos are natural critics who are overly self-aware.

These natives start out noticing flaws in others, but this slowly transforms them into self-reflective beings, which unveils a whole new level of insecurity. Now all the issues that they notice in others, they suddenly see in themselves, even if these traits are minor or even invisible to others. This hyper-awareness makes them feel that they are just one step away from public humiliation or ridicule. This becomes an aggressive pattern of insecurity, which leads to awkwardness, which becomes an embarrassment, which makes for even more insecurities.

Virgos need to be yanked from this vicious cycle, and the best way to do this is to remember their good qualities and successes and break down a small, bite-sized, actionable list to follow. This takes down the overwhelm, and lets Virgo live in the moment with more confidence.

10. Libra

Libras are notorious for flirting out of boredom just for their own entertainment, but there’s more to this than what most assume. Libras want to feel important, noticed, and loved, but they don’t always give themselves permission to feel this way. So they seek out validation from others, by outright asking friends for the truth, and by flirting or dating strangers for validation and permission to love themselves.

Because Libras feel compelled to keep things equal and find justice, they naturally worry about their own fairness and their place in this world. To feel better and less comparable, Libras should focus on what they want, and who they truly want to be. Following this path of uniqueness and finding what makes them happy will free them from the comparison game, and give them the confidence and validation that they crave.

9. Pisces

Pisces are easily influenced by others and rarely looks introspectively for their wants or needs. Pisces tends to skip around with their hobbies, aesthetics, style, and even personality. All of these changes and uncertainty are not good for their mental health, especially their self-esteem. They feel that if others don’t love them, then they can’t love themselves.

One of the best things Pisces can do for themselves is to learn how to sit in silence, reflect on themselves, and think about their own unique qualities and wants. Learning how to blaze their own path can be transformative and a critical exercise in self-worth.

8. Capricorn

Capricorns come across as one of the more confident signs in the zodiac, but this is a front that they create to protect themselves and maintain their image. Vulnerability is frightening for the Capricorn, especially women, so they do everything within their power to conceal it.

Inside, these natives are never quite sure how to interact with others, and have a difficult time gauging how close they really are with their friends, family, and coworkers. Capricorns take pride in their work though, and give their careers everything. Because of this, they usually don’t feel insecure in this area of their lives.

To improve their social confidence, Capricorn should make an effort to “put themselves out there” more often. Go out for drinks with coworkers, make an effort to call family often, and spend time with friend groups. Spending more time outside of their comfort zone will grow their confidence and make them feel more secure.

7. Taurus

Taurus, much like Capricorn, buries their insecurities deep. They fear that others will see them as stupid or gullible, so they work extra hard to compensate for it. Taurus is the type to study up on random trivia, memorize thesauruses, and research any topic that may come up in conversation. Taurus insists on looking intelligent, sophisticated, and successful.

To improve confidence, Taurus should practice saying “I don’t know”. The more they can admit to imperfection, the more likely they are to see that no one is going to harm them or ridicule them for inadequacies, and they will learn to relax a bit more.

6. Gemini

Geminis, like Pisces, are moldable, and easily influenced by others, just not to the same extent as Pisces. It’s difficult for them to find their own way, and they struggle to find an acceptable way to be unique, and still part of the group.

Gemini needs time alone, even though they despise it, to focus on their wants and needs, and preferences. Then they need to practice revealing their uniqueness around others, especially those they want to impress.

5. Aquarius

Aquarius is a relatively confident sign. They romanticize their lives, they are spontaneous, adventurous, and generally love themselves. Their only sign of insecurity is their need to showcase their accomplishments, progress, and overall lifestyle. While they feel confident sharing many aspects of their lives with others, part of them does this out of a need for validation and attention. Though they give themselves almost all the validation they need, a little bit of it needs to come from others.

4. Scorpio

Scorpios are self-aware of their shortcomings, but have generally made peace with their flaws, and are happy with their skills and who they are as people. Occasionally they feel insecure with their choices or abilities, but these times are short-lived, and Scorpio can let it roll off their back.

Scorpio’s primary insecurity comes out when others question or criticize them. Scorpios are okay with their flaws but do not tolerate others speaking poorly about them. They are not confident enough to allow others to talk about them and they will cause a scene if they feel attacked or judged.

3. Aries

Aries is one of the most confident signs in the zodiac. The few times that you’ll ever catch a glimpse of their insecurities, is by paying attention to the jokes and sarcasm they use on others. Rather than dealing with their flaws, Aries prefers to find them in other people, and then make that person and that flaw the butt of their joke.

Aries would definitely benefit from self-reflection and vulnerability. Learning to show their true self, including their issues with others, would really help them out with this aspect.

2. Leo

While many people would rank Leo as the most confident sign in the zodiac, and while they are confident, they still conceal a lot.

Leos love to be the center of attention, partially because they feel that they deserve it and are the most interesting person in the room, but also because they crave the attention and validation from others that they are unable to give themselves.

Leos constantly fear rejection and public humiliation too, which is especially ironic because of how public they make themselves and their lives to be. Everything about themselves is carefully curated and they never show too much of their true selves while in the limelight.

1. Sagittarius

Sagittarius is truly unhinged when it comes to confidence. These natives take criticism in stride, pulling out useful tidbits of information, and discarding the hurtful parts of the criticism to the side. They never mull over their past actions, and they don’t worry about what others think of them.

These natives give themselves grace, self-love, validation, and the permission to be whoever they want, no matter the cost, and no matter what others think of them. Sagittarius is keenly aware of how short and precious life is and doesn’t waste a moment with insecurities or negativity.
