It’s not uncommon for jealousy to play a part in your daily life when you’re in a relationship – you might find yourself sneaking around looking through your partner’s phone and emails as well as checking their jean pockets but you’re not even sure why you’re doing it!
Jealousy isn’t something we have much control over and it is a very unhealthy, counterproductive feeling that makes us feel discontent and unsatisfied. However, jealousy is also a natural, instinctive emotion that everyone experiences at some point in their life.
There are several stages of jealousy that exist, legitimate and moderate jealousy, compulsive jealousy and finally extreme and obsessional jealousy. This final stage of jealousy is one that destroys many relationships. If you’re extremely jealous then don’t miss out on our advice on how to beat it. Read on to find out which astrological signs are more prone to jealousy!
Aries (March 21 – April 19):
No matter how much an Aries may appear to be confident and in charge, they often have an underlying insecurity. If you’re involved with an Aries, get ready for an emotional rollercoaster. The truth is that Aries kind of enjoy all the drama.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20):
A Taurus is stubborn and doesn’t like to show their emotions to people. Since they’re very rational, they don’t get jealous much. If they do get suspicious, they’ll follow their instincts, and if the end result is as they feared, they’re more likely to end things quietly than doing anything to cause a scene.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20):
People born under this sign are not prone to jealousy scenes, though sometimes they create ones without a reason. Geminis are aware that they themselves are prone to cheating, so they assume that others are no less unfaithful. This doubt sometimes compels them to search for evidence of infidelity and they become terribly unhappy.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22):
Cancers don’t experience jealousy very often because when they’re involved with someone, they’re completely in love and expect the same from their significant other. If they do get jealous, they’ll keep it inside until it turns into resentment. Once you’ve betrayed a Cancer, they’ll never forgive you.
Leo (July 23 – August 22):
Leos are usually jealous because of their wounded pride or because of the fear that they are not enough loved or respected. So, when the Leo roars, then it is less because of the lost love, and more due to the lost power. They tend to expect too much from their partners.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22):
Virgos like to keep their emotions in check, but underneath it all they can be extremely jealous. Look into their eyes and you can see their true feelings. If they’re suspicious of you, they won’t confront you until they’ve thoroughly investigated the situation, and they may never trust you again.
Libra (September 23 – October 22):
Libras want two things: to be liked and to avoid conflict. Unfortunately, they have a tendency to be insecure and can get jealous. Since they’ll do anything to avoid confrontation and possibly get someone angry with them, they’ll hide their jealousy until they’ve been able to talk themselves out of feeling it.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21):
Scorpio is the most jealous of all the signs. They’re jealous of the grocery clerk who commented on your wine purchase, and of your dance partner in fourth grade. Scorpios can be very controlled with their jealousy and are able to channel it into more productive areas.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21):
Sagittarius is rarely jealous, and even if they are they’d never admit to it. However, they have a huge problem with being cheated on and will not forgive or forget if they suspect you of being unfaithful. The best thing to do is immediately sit down with them, and reassure them there’s no indiscretion on your part so their twinge of jealousy doesn’t blow up.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19):
Capricorns can never forgive nor forget a bad experience. Surprisingly, they are not very jealous, so they never investigate the actions of their partners. However, if they found out that they have been cheated, they will slam the door and end the relationship.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18):
Aquarians are unpredictable and don’t usually show their true emotions to anybody. Aquarians don’t experience jealousy. They usually do not suffer, and if they suffer, they will try to cover it up. Once cheated, they won’t look for a reason. They will simply go away!
Pisces (February 19 – March 20):
Pisces are the least jealous of the signs, but still have their jealous moments. Pisces are empathetic and are very conscious of other people’s feelings. If they get jealous, their natural compassion guilts them right out of their jealous tirade. But their fierce loyalty makes them possessive and demanding, which can turn into jealousy when they don’t even realize it.
