Zodiac Signs When They’re Jealous 

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Scorpios are the most jealous people in the zodiac. They don’t give their trust easily, and can become suspicious over the smallest of details. Paranoia is often a trait in Scorpio males, which makes having relationships very difficult. If you can find a way to ease their concerns, and keep them at peace, you will find a caring period underneath. By the way, never lie to a Scorpio. That’s instant death to any relationship hopes.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Second on the list of the most jealous zodiac sign. Mr. Cancer is excellent at concealing those emotions, however. They kind of simmer in his shell. When you add being a water sign filled with profound emotion, this can get rather intense. When he’s ready to confront the issue, prepare for a heated discussion that’s not always logical. 

Leo (July 23-August 22)

With enormous passion and roaring love, comes jealousy in equal measure. Leo men rank three in the zodiac for being jealous. Mr. Leo wants your attention. When he feels slighted, that green-eyed monster comes out in full force. This is a matter tied to ego. They want that spotlight, and when it moves elsewhere, his eyes look to see where it’s gone, especially toward a rival. 

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Coming in at number 4, Virgos have a self-critical nature which can easily lead to jealousy. Envy appears when someone beats them at nearly anything. If a Virgo man is jealous, you’re like to get a dressing down that feels like you’re being scolded by Grandma for something horrible. Virgo insecurity comes from wanting to work harder and be their best self. Their sights are often set way too high.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

The ram can be a moody sort, and have a short temper. They often let their emotions lead them. While they don’t get as jealous as other zodiac signs, it’s not a pretty picture when the emotion comes in full force. This only happens when the Aries man feels betrayed. If you have an explanation, say it quickly. Until you do, his self-esteem spirals downward.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

There is a difference between being possessive and being jealous. Men born under this sign are fairly patient, and won’t act immediately on a fly-by feeling. Mind you, Mr. Taurus is covetous. He wants to be wealthier than you, and if he’s not, it challenges his sense of accomplishment. In the end, he becomes pessimistic and jealous, but it will pass.

Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

Capricorn men are more prone to jealous thoughts than actions. They will stop and consider why they feel as they do. If it’s a small thing, their sense of self-control kicks in. Jealousy becomes apparent in Mr. Capricorn when he sees someone achieving one of his long-held goals. In an odd twist, that jealousy may actually fuel his drive to go on to success. 

Libra (September 23-October 22)

If you look in the dictionary for the definition of understanding, you’ll find Libra. They are perfectly aware that life is changeable and erratic. So they just roll with the punches. This is perfect because confrontation is something they HATE. One instance in which Libra gets really jealous is when he sees another couple who appears to fare better than you. He will crave what he sees as ideal. Thankfully, Libra’s jealousy isn’t long-lasting. 

Sagittarius (November 22- December 21)

You can watch the Sagittarius man for years, and never see him appear jealous. His optimism carries him through any crisis. Mr. Sagittarius loves his freedom and simply doesn’t get jealous often. When he does, he truly dislikes it. Jealousy for this sign comes from being reliant on someone’s affections who doesn’t seem to be giving enough.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Winding down on the jealousy scale, we come to the Aquarian man. He is a complex creature who, rather than let any thoughts of jealousy build, tried to find a solution. He’ll examine himself and talk over his feelings. Even when it comes out that his partner cheated, he doesn’t agonize over the revelation. He accepts it “as is” and walks out the door to a new tomorrow.

Pisces (February 19-March 20)

The idea of jealousy is foreign to the Pisces man. After all, we don’t “own” people. We share them with various circles. Also, Pisces doesn’t fear rejection. They’re perfectly self-sufficient on their own. Having said that, there are moments when Mr. Pisces gets an idea in his head and starts questioning everything. He becomes sentimental, which clouds his head. Clear-thinking eludes him. Since Pisces isn’t prone to anger, he will suffer in silence with his jealousy, blaming himself.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Geminis are not the jealous type. They are carefree with just enough possessiveness to make you feel special. If you were to ask a Gemini if they are jealous, they’d laugh it off and make it seem like everything is perfectly fine. In such cases, however, he will avoid talking about the significant other altogether.

Remember that Gemini is a mutable sign, and the Gemini man is truly of two minds. One day he may be jealous, and the next, he resolves it. It’s hard for partners to keep up.
