The Least To Most Optimistic Zodiac Signs


Pisces is known for being one of the dreamiest signs of the zodiac. They tend to live in their own world most of the time. However, reality does tend to make them come crashing back down to Earth, and this is where part of their extreme pessimism comes from. The rest of it comes from them being so emotional. These signs have a hard time dealing with anything negative, so they often don’t take the time to find the positive side of things.


Capricorn is known for being a very hard worker. They tend to suck up their emotions in order to remain in control. Logical thinking is their strong point. However, holding in all of their emotions and putting an immense amount of pressure on themselves often leads to them being less than optimistic.


Scorpio tends to be more dramatic than other signs. One small mishap and they will feel as though their entire world is crashing down. Because of this, Scorpio has a hard time seeing the bright side of things. Scorpio could benefit from learning to control their emotions to help them see the logical side of things.


Virgos seem to radiate bad vibes. Like Capricorn, they often hold in their emotions and put an immense amount of pressure on themselves. This pressure helps them get more work done because Virgos work extremely well under pressure. However, the very thing that helps motivate them also helps to destroy any chance of positive vibes. They tend to let things stress them out, and often see things from a negative point of view.

In order for Virgos to escape this vicious cycle, they have to surround themselves with positive vibes. This will help them feel more positive and avoid getting sucked into the drama.


Cancer can be very moody and emotional. This makes them pessimistic on some days and weirdly optimistic on other days. It all depends on what is going on in their life, and what side of the bed they wake up on.

If they are having a wonderful day and something goes wrong, expect Cancer to develop a sour mood. Likewise, when they wake up on the wrong side of the bed, nothing will go right. Cancer has a hard time putting itself in a good mood when things aren’t going their way.


Taurus tends to go from one extreme to another. Where Cancer will brood over a bad day, Taurus will downright have a fit on occasion. The next day, they may be bursting with positivity and seem to see the world in a new light. They are far from the most optimistic of the zodiac signs, but they have enough good days that they should not be considered one of the least optimistic zodiac signs either.


Aquarius is one of the more optimistic signs. While they do have their bad moods, they try to suck up those negative emotions as they struggle to find the positive in every situation. If you’re looking for positive vibes, you need an Aquarius friend.


Sagittarius sees life as being full of positivity. They prefer to look at the bright side whenever they can, and often feel uncomfortable when surrounded by negative vibes. Sagittarius will help you find the bright side to any situation, no matter how bleak it may seem.

However, it’s important to keep their temper in mind. Although this sign doesn’t lose its temper as often as some other signs of the zodiac, you can trust that they will not have a single nice thing to say once they do.


Gemini is the twin of the zodiac. You may see some bad days, but they generally attempt to remain positive. They see the glass as half full in most situations. Their typical refusal to accept responsibility when they don’t have to leads to them always having fun. In general, they don’t like to be around a debbie downer.


Leo is a ray of sunshine. Their outgoing personality and the way that they enjoy everything they can about life make it hard for this sign to be pessimistic. They tend to avoid negative people and drama because it can make them feel unhappy. Instead, they surround themselves with positivity and always try to see the bright side of things.


Libra is known for cracking a joke when life gets rough. Their sense of humor often sees them through difficult times and helps them remain positive. Libra not only tries to be as optimistic as they can, but they are also naturally this way. They have a charming nature with a positive vibe that makes them naturally attract positive people.


Aries is surprisingly, one of the most optimistic of the zodiac signs. While they are known for their temper and being stubborn, Aries does have several positive traits. They appreciate positivity and always try to make other people smile. Aries is the person in the room that will try to lighten the mood if they sense that other people are feeling unhappy.

You’ll see this in almost every aspect of their life. They are more likely to be the class clown growing up and will want to share funny videos with all of their friends to make them laugh.

Fire signs tend to be more positive than the grounded, Earth signs. This is because their vibrant personality naturally has more positive traits. Learn more about zodiac signs by reading the rest of our blogs.
