The 5 most pessimistic signs of the zodiac
Life has its fair share of ups and downs so we cannot expect to be 100 percent positive and happy.
We all have the occasional day off when it can be difficult to find the silver lining, see the positive side, or see the glass as half empty.
But when it comes to astrology there are some zodiac signs that are more pessimistic and that perhaps struggle the most with that.
These people may see things with a slightly negative attitude because of the traits involved.
They might not be the most hopeful or optimistic, and that’s fine.
As long as you know how to keep it all under control, it’s really nothing to worry about.
It’s okay to have a negative, pessimistic phase, but learning where to direct these energies is key.
Every sign has its light and its dark side. The trick is to learn to find the balance between the two sides.
As a rigid sign, Taurus doesn’t like it when unpredictable things happen.
Once they encounter an obstacle or someone who doesn’t understand their point of view, their natural reaction may be to experience an overwhelming sense of pessimism – which puts them in a bad mood.
When Taurus is in any of his negative moods, he becomes headstrong and can make some harsh, blunt remarks.
The best way for Taurus to change their mood is to allow others to have their own opinions – even if it’s not quite how Taurus sees things.
Once you open up to new ideas, you may be surprised how much fun you have with them. And how optimistic they feel.
Cancer is a highly sensitive sign, so it doesn’t take much for it to change from a good mood to a more negative one.
Once they begin to be pessimistic about life, they tend to switch themselves off and close themselves off to further information.
Cancer who experiences one of its negative moments will withdraw silent treatment.
They also tend to feel like everyone is after them, even when that’s obviously not true.
They are unaware that their oversensitive nature often leads them to read too much into a particular situation.
Cancers can mitigate their changeable moods by trying not to take things so personally.
Virgo can be one of the most pessimistic signs of the zodiac.
People born under this sign are natural carers who strive for perfection.
Virgos are easily tipped into a dark mood when something isn’t going right.
Even seemingly insignificant things – like a leaking faucet – can ruin your day completely.
But it doesn’t have to be like that. Virgo can curb her pessimism by not expecting perfection.
Instead of focusing on the problem, they will see how much easier it is to accept the solution.
Scorpios are the detectives of the zodiac and therefore quickly pick up on shady situations.
They loathe being lied to and have a creepy way of finding out the truth.
They can be naturally suspicious and tend to see the intent behind everything.
Even if they tend to be right, that’s really not a way of life.
Scorpios can benefit greatly from putting their magnifying glass down and trying not to jump to conclusions.
Since Capricorn is ruled by the planet Saturn, they are by nature to be taken very seriously
And that makes them easily slip into a pessimistic state – especially if their plans go wrong.
This sign doesn’t like to take a few steps back, and when things don’t work out for them and progress is hampered, they become very negative.
Capricorns tend to be their own worst enemies, and if they learn to strike a healthy balance between work and play, you may find that a little relaxation isn’t all that bad.
Small changes like these can help even the most pessimistic people feel a little more positive.
It’s just about recognizing negativity before it gets out of hand and then looking for ways to mitigate it, all in the name of feeling more balanced.
