What's Your Breaking Point, According To Your Zodiac?

Updated June 25, 2019 30.2k views12 items

We live in a stressful world, but most of us do the best we can to keep our tempers in check. Unfortunately, it's possible to push anyone beyond their breaking point. Some run hotter, while others may be far more cool, but absolutely no one is immune (not even you, Libra). In fact, each sign of the zodiac has a common trigger that can make even the iciest boil over.

    Who’s a good Lion? You’re a good Lion! Leos need their validation on a pretty regular schedule. Their talents, work, and appearance all need a good talking up from time to time. If their ego goes hungry for too long, they can get touchy and defensive.

    Perish the thought if this sign gets criticized on a validation fast. The kitty is gonna show all its teeth.

    The extreme perfectionism and attention to detail that Virgo displays can mean they’re on top of their game. Virgo works hard and spends a lot of energy to be that sharp, so it’s not a good idea to be condescending. They’re reasonable enough to accept new data, but do it respectfully.

    You wouldn’t be condescending to your mom, so don’t be condescending to the mother of the zodiac. If you do, you might be in for a temper flare.

    If there’s one thing that really makes a Libra’s blood boil, it’s an imbalance in their Scales of Justice. If they feel like someone is treating them unfairly, it can get pretty nasty pretty fast.

    Despite their prickly reputation, Scorpios can be pretty amazing. Just don’t get on their bad side. It isn’t easy to gain a Scorpio’s trust, so if you betray them, they’ll unleash that fearsome scorpion vengeance.

    What this sign considers a betrayal or wrongdoing can be slight, so remember: Honesty is always the best policy.
