Are you the jealous type? Do you see red whenever you see your partner speaking to someone else? Are you the type to compare yourself to others are wonder “why them and not me?” Do you feel genuinely happy for your friends when they succeed, or do you wish that it was you?
While a little bit of jealousy is natural within any social context, out of control jealousy can be crippling and undermine your self-esteem and your relationships.
Your Zodiac sign can tell you how likely to are to suffer from jealousy.
Scorpio, Virgo, and Libra tend to be the most jealous signs, as they find it difficult to trust and have an urge to compare themselves to others.
Pisces, Aquarius, and Capricorn tend to be the least jealous. Pisces are genuinely selfless, while Aquarius and Capricorn are so self-contained that they are not easily touched by the lives of others.
Let’s take a look at all the zodiac signs, ranked from most to least jealous, and look at why they might feel the way that they do.
Jealousy is one of the emotions that Scorpio struggles with. They don’t tend to trust anyone, and they are always on the lookout for forms of betrayal.
This means that they are the type to get jealous if they see their partner chatting to someone else, or to feel left out if their friends go out and don’t invite them.
Since they are always looking for malicious intent, they struggle to be happy for others when they are successful. They are too busy thinking about all the conspiracies that are preventing them from being the one who is winning.
Perfectionist Virgo is never satisfied. No matter how much they achieve, they always believe that they could have worked harder and done more.
As part of this, they have an unfortunate tendency to compare themselves to others, often in a negative light, which can breed jealousy of what others have.
They also tend to be very insecure in their relationships, and believe that they aren’t good enough to hold onto their partners. So they will often feel insecure and jealous if they see their partner spending time with someone else.
Libras love to be the center of attention. They don’t necessarily want to be the one who is succeeding, but they definitely do want to be the one that everyone is talking to about it.
If they are in a group and they can feel the attention on someone else, they automatically start to get jealous and think about how they can bring the focus back onto them.
They will also stalk friends on social media and get upset if they feel like they are being left out of anything.
People born under Taurus can be both covetous and possessive.
They tend to want the best things in life, and will judge what those things are by examining the people around them. They can certainly be covetous of the things that others have.
When they do get something, they value it and guard it jealously. Don’t expect them to lend you anything. This possessiveness can extend to their partners. They also aren’t afraid to speak up if they think that their partner is out of line.
Aries tend to be very self-involved and only think about what they want. They really struggle to empathize with others and see things from their perspective.
This means that when others succeed, they don’t tend to think of that in terms of that person, but rather themselves. So rather than congratulating someone on a job well done, they are asking “why not me”.
They also tend to be very possessive of their partners. They almost see them as a prize won, and will defend their “ownership” to protect their own ego.
While Sagittarius might seem carefree, when it comes to certain things, they have their own green-eyed monster.
Sagittarius likes to be the first to do anything, and always wants to be the most outrageous and adventurous person in the room. If someone is outdoing them, they are likely to get a little upset and try to prove themselves.
As they are also commitmentphobes, they won’t get jealous over a partner since in their mind it was probably “not that serious”. But the challenge might renew their attention, because they don’t like to lose.
Cancer is so community-minded that it is hard to believe that they have a jealous bone in their body. They genuinely want the best for the people that they care about.
But Cancer can fall into an “us and them” mentality. So, while they are happy for their “us”, they can get jealous if the things that they want goes to the “them”.
They tend to be easygoing in relationships, but if they sense danger or betrayal they will get upset. They don’t want anything undermining their perfect world.
Many people will consider Leo to be a jealous sign because they are attention hogs, but they are actually among the least jealous people in the Zodiac.
Leos are so confident in themselves that the success of others doesn’t dim their light. They know that they burn just as brightly when the person beside them is shining too.
They tend to trust their partners, as why would they want anyone else? If things don’t work out, it doesn’t damage their ego, so they are able to take it with grace.
Gemini tend to believe that there is more than enough in the world to go around, so they don’t tend to get jealous of what others have.
They also tend to believe that things in life are ephemeral. So, if the person that they are interested in moves on to someone else, they just see it as a natural part of the cycle of life.
Gemini believes that all things happen for a reason. They accept things and move on and refuse to carry around baggage that they don’t need.
Capricorn is so focused on themselves and what they are doing that they just don’t really have the bandwidth to be jealous.
It is almost like, if it happens to someone else, it is beyond their realm of interest. So, they will think “that’s great for them, but I’m focussed here”.
If a partner decides to look elsewhere, they can easily compartmentalize their feelings and convince themselves that they are better off without the distraction.
Aquarius are so confident that they don’t get jealous. They never compare themselves to other people because they believe that they are unique and perfect the way that they are.
They are also very independent and believe that you can never truly “own” another person. For this reason, they rarely get jealous in relationships or friendships either.
Aquarius is so self-contained that they don’t let the world impact them in negative ways.
Pisces genuinely wants what is best for other people, even if that means that they have to make sacrifices or miss out on things.
They believe that everyone is a unique and special human being. This allows them to appreciate everyone they meet, and means that they never compare themselves to others.
While they can certainly be hurt by the actions of others, they are so good at understanding the other person’s perspective that they always forgive.
Are you Jealous?
Life can be challenging if you have the tendency to compare yourself to other people, or if you struggle to trust the people that you love the most.
But while this may be your natural tendency, you can learn to overcome these feelings. This will help you to feel good about yourself and not let the actions of other’s control how you feel about yourself.
