Which Sign Could You Beat In A Fight, According To Your Zodiac?

A person may look to their horoscope for general advice about life and love, to glean insights into their own character, or even to make decisions about career moves. Some consider their horoscope little more than a section of the newspaper to skim over while having their morning coffee. But if you've ever craved more detailed information from the stars, such as which zodiac signs you could totally take in a fight, you've come to the right place.

This list describes the more combative aspects of your star sign, so be warned: there are no "You're a natural peacemaker" or "You're all about love and commitment" to be found here. This is an account of which zodiac sign would win in a fight. In other words, your more adversarial qualities.

Also, no one is advocating fighting, so while you may be tempted to test the efficacy of the claims made here… please don't.

  • Aries Beats Aquarius Because Aries Has
Few Scruples

    More than any other sign, Aries is driven by ego. This means that when someone crosses them, their ego won't stand for being wronged. This also makes them utterly ruthless in a fight and gives them an advantage over Aquarius - who has, you know, morals.

    The Aquarian's firmly held standards of what is right and what is wrong will make them hold back just enough for Aries to come out on top.

    Yes, Sagittarius may be the fittest and sportiest zodiac sign, but they can also sometimes be tactless and a bit messy in their approach to life and relationships. And that's enough to set the normally even-keeled Taurus off. They don't like unnecessarily complicating any issue, which Sags can do with little effort.

    A Taurus will set aside their usual patience to open a can on a messy Sagittarius and roundly trounce them, despite Saggie's often superior physical condition.

  • Gemini Will Have Finished Beating Taurus Before Taurus Has Thrown A Punch

    Taurus is one of the more fight-averse signs in the zodiac, making them the prime target of the quadruple-fisted Gemini. The two sides of the Gemini nature equal an overabundance of energy and, often, anxiety, that they need to express.

    If Taurus pushes them too far, Gemini is going to pounce. And they'll pounce hard in a great big eruption of pent-up energy and rage. Given Taurus's reluctance to fight, they'll be out before they have a chance to fight back.

  • Cancer Is Merciless In Their Beatdown Of Gemini

    Cancers are known for their sensitivity, but it's precisely this emotionality that will benefit them in a fight. Betray a Cancer in any way and they're going to take it personally. Gemini has a dual nature, so you may never entirely know where you stand with them. This can be interpreted by Cancer as deception, and as a result, they will come at a Gemini with fists a-flying.

    What leads Cancer to victory is that their fighting spirit is not borne of a baseless, momentary rage, but a deeply felt sense of betrayal - which can be far more dangerous.

  • Leo Takes Out Libra In Practically One Fell Swoop

    Since Leos are all about keeping ahead of the competition, Virgo is really the only adversary who poses a serious threat. The easiest to top in a fight? Hesitant Libra, because those who hesitate are lost.

    The fight will be a quick knockout and likely over before Libra has any idea what just happened, but Leo's arrogance will make sure that Libra - and everyone else within earshot - knows who the winner is. 

  • Virgo's Perfectionism Will Be Their Key To Trouncing Leo

    A Virgo is both a perfectionist and a hard worker, and they will put these qualities to great use in a fight. Because Leos are super-competitive, they are well-matched to Virgos - in combat, anyway. But it is Virgo who will emerge the winner, simply because they are the only sign that will be able to keep up with cutthroat Leo.

    While other signs tire after several rounds, Virgo's tenacity will make them the winner.
