We all love to focus on the positive qualities of our signs. Whenever you read your horoscope, you’re probably searching for nothing but good news, right? After all, who would want to read negative things about themselves? Nope, we’re all searching for what we want to hear.

Leo wants to hear how confident they are, Capricorn wants to hear that they’re going far in their career, Sagittarius loves getting the validation that they’re the wild, free spirit of the zodiac, Pisces likes to see that they are creatively gifted…the list goes on and on! Basically, you get our point—every single sign wants to hear what they’re best at, what good qualities the universe has given them, what they do well. Does any sign WANT to hear about what they’re actually bad at? Nope.

Well, it’s time for some tough love! We have to be realistic about our good and bad qualities. Every sign has plenty of both. What does your sign screw up all the time? Where does your sign fall short? And how do people feel when you reveal the dark side of your sign? Here is the negative vibe that you put out to the world, based on astrology.

16Fire Signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)

Fire signs, you already know that you have fiery personalities. This is your element, after all, so it’s up to you to embrace it. You tend to think very highly of yourselves, and this isn’t necessarily a bad thing—honestly, most people these days could use a boost in confidence and self-esteem. We could all learn a thing or two from the fire signs! But, newsflash, fire signs—none of you are perfect. As much as you hate to hear that, it’s true. Since you are so confident, you can easily be blinded to any negative qualities that you may possess. In fact, it can be hard for you to accept the reality that you have any negative qualities at all! Fire signs, it’s time to face the truth.

15Aries: You Are Super Stubborn

Aries, you have a tendency to give off a very stubborn vibe. This is especially apparent to your coworkers, your roommates, and anyone who has ever had to work on a group project with you! For you, it’s your way or the highway. And there is no way that you are taking the highway, so it has to be your way. Does it really surprise you when other people get sick of dealing with that attitude? It shouldn’t. Aries, you give off the vibe that not only will you not budge on your own opinion, you truly can’t accept when someone feels differently than you. It’s enough to make your friends tear their hair out sometimes! They accept it because they love you, but it is definitely a major flaw of this sign.

14Leo: You Are Too Egotistical

Leo, you know that you have a ton of confidence, and you’ve also been warned that this can easily turn into arrogance if you don’t give yourself a reality check every once in a while! The truth is that many people feel you give off an egotistical vibe. Basically, this means that other people can clearly see that you have a huge ego. You feel that this gives you an air of authority, that you can walk into any room and heads will instantly turn towards you…but sometimes, it actually makes people want to turn away. Leo, let’s just come out and admit it—you often think that you’re better than everyone else, and when people figure this out, it can leave a very bad impression.

13Sagittarius: You Have Careless Habits

Hey, Sagittarius, doesn’t “free spirit” or “carefree” sound a lot better than “careless?” Yes, you love the feeling of being free—and sometimes, that means being free of your responsibilities, which often leaves a bad taste in other people’s mouths. You have a tendency to shirk your responsibilities off on to other people, and to be honest, it drives your roommates, your boss, and your family members crazy sometimes. No one wants to clean up your dirty dishes, no one wants to clean your room, no one wants to pick up the shift that you’re trying to skip so you can go to a concert, and no one wants to make a budget for you so that you actually remember to pay your phone bill on time.

12Earth Signs ( Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)

Earth signs, are you shocked to hear that you could even give off a negative vibe? Well, don’t be so surprised, because no sign is perfect! And yes, you may all be perfectionists, but that does not make you perfect, because that is an impossible standard. So, what kind of negative vibe could an earth sign possibly give off? Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn all seem so pulled together and organized on the surface. They definitely live up to the name of their element—they are all known for being very down to earth, responsible signs. But even the most down to earth signs have their flaws. If you’re an earth sign, read on to find out exactly what kind of negative vibe you might be giving off.

11Taurus: You Are Surprisingly Selfish

Taurus, you are hyper-focused on self-improvement and personal development. And isn’t that a great thing? Shouldn’t you always be striving to become the best person that you can be? Why settle for anything less, right? Well, here’s the issue with your mindset. Often, focusing on self-improvement and your own success and well being over everyone else’s can turn into selfishness. And no one wants to be known as selfish! But Taurus, we have some bad news for you. There are definitely a good number of people out there who think that you give off a selfish vibe. And this may seem unbelievable to you because you truly do not see yourself as selfish—but that’s exactly why you need to wake up to this reality and change this behavior.

10Virgo: You Are Quick To Criticize Others

Virgo, you truly embody the perfectionist qualities that earth signs are known for. You try your best to avoid making mistakes, and you do not want to be seen as a failure in any way, shape, or form. Therefore, you are always working very hard and doing your best at whatever you put your mind to. But this can have a negative impact on the way people see you, and the way that you see other people. Basically, since you are such a perfectionist, you can be quick to criticize other people for minor things and make them feel bad about themselves. Virgo, not everyone needs to meet the standards that you set for yourself—in fact, not everyone wants to. And sometimes, your standards are just unrealistic.

9Capricorn: You Can Be Ruthless

Capricorn, you can give off vibes that honestly scare people sometimes! “Seriously?” you might be thinking. “I’m an earth sign. We’re not intimidating.” Um, yes, you can be! Seriously, Capricorn, you can be absolutely ruthless when you want something. It’s not enough for you to just be good, you have to be great. But remember, you don’t want to step all over anyone else on your way to the top. Because if you should ever fall down, those will be all the faces that you pass on the way to the bottom. You are not infallible, and we all need to recognize our flaws and shortcomings—Capricorns are not unique in this regard. But be aware that sometimes you can be so intense, it scares people off.

8Air Signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)

Air signs, you know that you are unique, so when people don’t like you, your first thought is never, “Well, I must be doing something wrong. Was I rude? Is there something I need to work on?” Nope, your first thought if generally, “They just don’t understand me! Their loss!” This can be a dangerous attitude to have. It prevents you from seeing where your flaws lie, and it blocks you from working on the things that you really need to work on. In fact, this mindset is very dangerous because in the long run, it will definitely hold you back from making positive changes in your life that could improve your relationships with other people. Here’s the negative vibe you give off—and what you can do about it.

7Gemini: You Are Flakey And Indecisive

Gemini, you give off an extremely flakey vibe. People can just see that you have difficulty committing. Whether it’s committing to a job, a relationship, a project at work, or even a plan you made with friends, you always struggle. What if there could be something better around the corner? What if you stick with your first plan, a new invitation comes up, you turn it down, and then you find out that you missed out on something great? Gemini, to be honest, you have been living your life with a serious case of FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) from day one! You literally need to practice commitment as if it’s a new skill. You need to start holding yourself accountable, or people will always think of you as indecisive.

6Libra: You Are Obsessed With Material Things

It’s well known that Libras are often very concerned with their image. We all are, to an extent, and the popularity of social media platforms like Instagram and Twitter make this tendency even worse these days. We always want to know what other people are thinking of us. Libra is plagued by this bad habit, and other people can sense it. Libras can often give off a negative vibe that they obsessed with material things. They are a good-looking sign because they put so much effort into their appearances—and wouldn’t you if you were always stressing over what other people thought? Libra, you need to understand that there is so much more to life than worrying about what other people think—in fact, people will like you more if you’re not always stressing over that!

5Aquarius: You Give Off A Judgmental Vibe

Aquarius, you know that you have always stood outside of the mainstream, and you are perfectly happy with that. But because of this, you sometimes come to resent people who live more traditional vibes. You think of them as beneath you, and you feel that you are better than them just because you are naturally unique. This can cause you to give off a very judgmental vibe. People will not want to be around you because they do not want to feel like they are being judged—and honestly, who can blame them? No one wants to feel like they’re being judged! Moral of the story? Treat people as you want to be treated, Aquarius, or they won’t want to be around you. That’s the golden rule of life.

4Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)

Water signs, you like to think of yourselves as gentle, fragile, and sensitive—you wouldn’t hurt a fly, right? And of course, you would never dream of offending anyone. Plus, you’re all quite spiritual, and you like to focus on staying positive, so how on earth could you give off bad vibes? Well, we’ve got some news for you, water signs. Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces—listen up. Although you may be compassionate and sensitive signs, that does not mean that you are free of flaws, and that does not mean that it’s impossible for you to hurt someone else. In fact, water signs have plenty of flaws, and they can be difficult for some of the other signs to get along with. Let’s get into it.

3Cancer: People See You As A Pushover

Cancer, you are very sweet and kind compared to the other signs, and you know it. In fact, you really pride yourself on these qualities. You feel like these traits define who you really are. But the truth is that even though you are a genuinely nice person, some people are not going to like you anyway. In fact, some people feel that you give off the vibe that you’re a pushover. Yup, it can be demoralizing to hear, but it’s reality. You can often bend over backwards to please people, thinking that this will make them happy, but in all honesty, you cannot please everyone anyway. And it’s this exact habit that actually causes some people to dislike you. You need to stick to your values and stand up for yourself.

2Scorpio: You Are Quick To Overreact

Scorpio, you know that you can be a lot to handle. You say that you don’t have any interest in changing—but is that really the truth? Maybe if you understood the type of negative vibe that you have been known to give off, the answer could actually change. Did you know that many people think that you frequently overreact? Like all water signs, you are sensitive and emotional—you can’t help it, it’s just in your nature. But this doesn’t give you an excuse to freak out over every little thing. Sometimes, people may be afraid to tell you how they really feel because they just know that you will get angry with them if you admit the truth. This cannot result in unhealthy and unbalanced relationships.

1Pisces: You Are Overly Sensitive

Pisces, as a kid, you might have been known in class as the kid who would cry over everything. Being sensitive is absolutely nothing to be ashamed of, but being easily offended can definitely result in some problems in your life. People may feel like they have to walk on eggshells around you because they are scared of how you’ll react if they accidentally say the wrong thing. And the last thing that anyone wants to do is get into a debate with you! So, how can you work on this negative vibe? Well, for starters, you need to accept that it’s completely possible for two people to disagree and still be friends. It’s not the end of the world, and it’s certainly nothing to get upset about.
