Usually, I am not a social person so I pretty much just lock myself up in the house all weekend catching up on my TV shows. However, I was invited to a speed-dating event last weekend. The roster looked decent so I decided to go. Surprisingly, among the most common subjects was Astrology, especially sexual compatibility.

The most interesting bit I happened upon with regard to zodiac signs is that they have an effect on the way people express their anger. It seemed outrageous at first. I mean, anger is all about personality, and people just have different breaking points as individuals, not as astrological cohorts, right? But the more I researched on it, the more it seemed likely to be true. I don’t want to convince you, just look at my research and work out if its true or not.


Aries are among the fire signs, and as you might guess, they have short anger fuses. They need to be prepared for events and happenings or they lose their tempers quick. The quick anger outbursts have them starting fights without consideration of how that affects other people, or even how to end them. On the positive side, Aries are just as quick to cool down as they are to anger. They forgive and they forget too.


These are quite unlike the Aries, they have a long, slow burning fuse. They rarely get angry, but once they do, it is something worth writing home about. They will give subtle signs that they do not like something and hope you pick them up. At this point, you should take the hints seriously and try to talk the situation out with them. You have a decent chance at peace, as they will most likely just forgive you and move on. However, if they reach their breaking point you really do not want to be in their line of fire.


Geminis are talkers so, predictably, if you are in their bad books they will chew you out thoroughly. They scream, shout, curse, and yell, often sarcastic and hurtful things. However, their double sided nature often reflects in their anger too, as they make keep cool even when seething with anger, only to make a cutting remark once they get the chance. It’s in their nature, so you can be sure that either way, you do not want to be on the receiving end.


Generally loving and caring, Cancers are slow to anger. They first manifest it by changing moods and giving hints. If you do not catch on, the behavior takes on a passive-aggressive nature, and finally withdrawal. All they want is love and care and their withdrawal period would be an ideal time to show them the same. If they get none of that, they start crying which turns to tantrums, venting all their pent up frustration if no one acts on it.


Lions are predictably all about roaring the loudest. They experience not just ordinary anger, but a kind of a rage. They kick, rave, scream, and throw things around. They are straightforward, so you will know pretty much on the spot when they are angry. This may be expressed in an offensive manner which they do not mean, so just take it lightly. They may forgive you for wronging them, but do not be too optimistic about getting an apology. Because their pride.


Known for being kind, they hate hurting other people and so they do not like expressing their anger. They suppress their anger until they cannot take it anymore. Their hate for confrontation, however, often has them slamming the door walking out until they cool off. Their anger ceases on its own, but they will not forget the incident.


They are to the Zodiacs what Nelson Mandela was in South Africa. They are the peacemakers who loathe confrontation. They avoid confrontation, but it doesn’t help that they are among the most sensitive in the lot. They consider their every move carefully, and make mental notes about you that anger them for use against you in the future. However, they forgive easily and move on, keeping grudges following the most hurtful things.


Similar to Tauruses, they are slow to anger, but when they finally blow up, it is havoc. They have a sting eye cold as death and they can make the snidest, meanest comments in the most sarcastic manner. When they are angry, they may forgive but they do not forget. At all.


Sagittarius are excessively sarcastic when angry, giving hints so you can make peace. They have low patience levels so they get upset quickly, but they do not like drama, and it embarrasses them to look back and realize they lost their calm and acted out of character. This reflects in the way they are quick to iron things out when offended.


They take anger seriously and only express it when pushed to the wall. It is therefore uncharacteristic of them to vent, but when they do, you will be left in shock and a mess to clean up as they throw stuff around and break the rest.


Cool characters, these ones, leading a balanced life and taking plenty to get angry. They pull away in the initial stages of anger and try to ignore whoever is agitating them. If that does not work, prepare for a showdown, which will be followed by a long spell of the silent treatment.


They are all about their feelings but they are slow to anger. Once they are angry, however, they turn on themselves, going all violent and self-destructive and expressing their negative thoughts. However, once they calm down all they require is a bit of time to recover from their uncharacteristic anger spells.

So there you have my list; what’s your sign? Does it match the traits on this list?
