How do you express your anger? Are you a ranter or a slow-burner?
No matter how laid back you are, you will get angry, and sometimes that anger gets out of control.
You may be the type of person who gets angry easily, or you may be slow to anger. Is your anger long-lasting, or do you hold things inside you until they explode?
Our zodiac signs are a great way to assess our personality traits, especially when it comes to how we tend to express anger.
A horoscope can only provide so much information because no matter how your anger presents itself, no one is immune from the feelings that come with it. When this intense kind of anger bubbles up from deep within us, it can be almost impossible to handle it delicately.
So, what does this mean for you (and everyone in your way)? It means a lot of wreckage, hurt feelings, and harsh words.
There are many kinds of anger and many ways of expressing it, but is the way you express anger just a personality quirk, or is it determined by your zodiac sign?
Here Is How You Express Anger Based On Your Zodiac Sign
1. Aries (March 21 – April 19):
Throws a temper tantrum
Aries is considered the baby of the zodiac and they’re known to explode without considering how their actions will affect others. They aren’t ones to sugar-coat their feelings and if they’re mad at you, watch out.
The fire of their rage is easily lit, but will quickly be extinguished if the person they’re screaming at doesn’t react and remains calm. Aries cool down quickly and usually feel very sorry about their outburst — but that won’t stop them from blowing up again soon.
2. Taurus (April 20 – May 20):
Builds up, then explodes
When a Taurean gets angry with you, they’ll give you subtle hints at first, becoming silent and cold, and then they erupt like a volcano spewing hot rage, destroying everything in sight.
Those born under the sign of Taurus don’t get angry easily, but when they do, they often express their anger by throwing things and are entirely capable of losing their sh*t. You don’t want to be in their line of fire.
3. Gemini (May 21 – June 20):
Runs their mouth
Geminis love to talk, so it makes sense that their go-to form of anger expression is screaming, shouting, and hurling soul-crushing, sarcastic, and occasionally mean words. But since they’re known for having two sides to their personality, screaming isn’t the only way they express anger.
They can also be cool, level-headed, and strike your jugular vein with the perfect cutting remark. Whatever you do, don’t judge the Gemini or offer an opinion on what they should be doing with their lives, or you’ll be the focus of their rage.
4. Cancer (June 21 – July 22):
Experiences a range of emotions
When a Cancer gets pissed off, she first expresses it by sulking, then (if no one has caught on) she moves on to passive-aggressiveness, and then withdrawal into her shell. Warning: once she’s in protective shell mode, don’t decide what the best plan of action is to ignore her, for this is when you should express your love and be sweet to them.
If the Cancer is still not getting what they need, their silent fury will morph into crying, and if she’s still unsatisfied that anyone is taking her feelings seriously, she’ll throw down. Every pent-up emotion and unresolved feeling of anger from the past will be unleashed.
5. Leo (July 23 – August 22):
Roars like a lion
When Leo gets angry, they go beyond anger and end up storming with rage; they roar, and the louder and more intense their shouting is, the better they feel. Their go-to is offensive language, and they have a tendency to think only of their emotions when they’re angry, not what their outburst is doing to anybody else.
While they might forgive you for doing something that angered them, they’re not very likely to apologize for their behavior because they’re too proud.
6. Virgo (August 23 – September 22):
Stews in their feelings
Virgos aren’t especially comfortable with expressing their anger, so they hold it in until they blow up at something insignificant. The suppressed anger of Virgos often causes digestive and health issues. Virgos feel very misunderstood, and it can be confusing and awkward for everyone when a Virgo’s anger finally comes out.
It usually isn’t about the supposed immediate cause, but something that happened in the distant past. Virgo, if you can take a moment from crying and slamming doors, I think you’d see that no one is out to get you and your opinions have validity.
