Signs Most Likely To Be Your Enemies, According To Your Zodiac Sign

You might be surprised.

You're just not going to get along with everyone you meet in life, unfortunately. While there are things that you can do to try to find common ground, or at least be polite when you have to deal with people that you don't like or that don't like you, sometimes you'll just have enemies. If only you could predict who your enemies might be beforehand. Well — as astrology fans will know — knowing their zodiac sign just might help. People with the zodiac sign or signs that you’re least compatible with don’t have to be your enemies — you could even be friends — but knowing which zodiac signs you’re most and least compatible with could at least give you some clarity about why some of the relationships in your life are the way that they are.

Every single sign in the zodiac has the potential to get along with one another, believes Suzie Kerr Wright, an astrologer and psychic medium. Still, she notes that there are things that can put some signs at odds with each other or make enemies of each other, though there really isn’t one worst zodiac sign — like people, they all have good and bad qualities. Some zodiac signs indicate a tendency to be super organized and always on top of everything. Other zodiac signs are known for being aligned with personalities that are forgetful and absent-minded. The personality combination possibilities are endless. But if you’re wanting to get into the nitty-gritty — like finding out exactly who is Aquarius’ enemy or who is Cancer’s worst enemy — you’ll find answers here, but remember this is astrology. It’s more of an art than a science. And, because there's more to your overall astrological makeup than just your sun sign, it's also possible that one of the zodiac signs that experts say is most likely to be an enemy is actually one of your best friends. For example, your moon sign can be as important as your sun sign when it comes to your astrological identity. But, having an idea about which zodiac signs you might be least compatible with can make you feel a bit more prepared for whatever lies ahead, or explain an awful lot about why you and your coworker have never gotten along.


Pisces (February 19—March 20)

Pisces enemies are Gemini, Virgo and Sagittarius. Because Pisces is typically considered a more free-spirited — even occasionally flighty — sign, it can have problems with signs that don't always understand their way of looking at the world.

"Gemini has a strong desire to communicate to resolve conflict whereas Pisces may likely shy away from words," Linda Furiate, a professional astrologer, tells Romper. "Virgo may demand strong boundaries that often emotionally hurt Pisces. Sagittarius simply has little time to allow Pisces to dampen their enthusiasm and fun loving free spirited nature."


Aries (March 21—April 19)

Aries, the ram, can be pushy and hard-headed, which can rub some other signs the wrong way. In particular, Aries’ enemies are Leo and Scorpio, but even other Aries can be Aries enemy because both can be less than delicate when it comes to communication.

"Leo and Aries both have huge egos and that can cause big rifts when one tries to out-alpha the other," Kerr Wright explains. "Leo is more likely to hold the grudge and Aries will simply think 'glad [they're] out of the way' when a Leo storms off because [their] ego is bruised. Scorpio and Aries are both ruled by Mars and Scorpio has little patience for grandstanding Aries' need to top everything they say or do."


Taurus (April 20—May 20)

A so-called “fixed” sign, Taurus enemies are Leo, Aquarius, and Scorpio. "Fixed signs are set in their ways, willful and determined to get what they want," explains Furiate. "If it is perceived that another person is unwilling to budge or accept a viewpoint different from their own, conflict or a distinct misliking may occur.”


Gemini (May 21—June 20)

Gemini’s primary enemy will typically be other Geminis, because they're so wrapped up in their own thoughts or opinions that it can be difficult to hear those of the other.

Gemini might also struggle with Capricorn and Pisces. "Capricorn is like a wet blanket to Gemini's need for conversation, social activity and connection." Kerr Wright explains. "And Pisces and Geminis are not always the best combination. Pisces like to talk about their feelings. Gemini can do that for a minute, but after a while all that water just doesn't work for them. Geminis want to fix a problem and move on. Pisces tends to like to live in the drama."


Cancer (June 21—July 22)

The zodiac signs most likely to be Cancer enemies are Aries, Leo and Sagittarius. Cancer and Aries are particularly opposite in nature and will likely have a very hard time getting along. Meanwhile, when it comes to disagreements, Sagittarius will want to move forward, while Cancer is stuck on the problem. Plus, Cancer tends to hold a grudge against enemies, Kerr Wright adds.


Leo (July 23—August 22)

Like Taurus, Leo will also likely have a hard time with other fixed signs, Furiate says. So Taurus, Scorpio, and Aquarius might all find themselves as enemies of the lion of the zodiac.


Virgo (August 23—September 22)

Virgo's enemies are Sagittarius, Aries, and Libra.


Libra (September 23—October 22)

"Libra is about 'we;' what's good for everyone, what makes everyone happy. Aries is only about themselves," Kerr Wright says. "There's such a divide between how they see things it's offensive to Libra's need for harmony." Additionally, Libra's other likely enemies include Scorpio and Virgo. Libra and Virgo don't get along because they're very different. Virgo makes decisions, Libra can't decide. Plus, Scorpio is all about the tough love, which Libra doesn't always want to hear, Kerr Wright says. That makes it difficult to stay on each other's good sides long-term.


Scorpio (October 23—November 21)

Scorpio tends not to get along with Leo, Gemini, or Aquarius. Leo is typically highly-competitive, which can sometimes make it difficult for Scorpio to get their way. And, because Gemini can be manipulative itself, that can negatively affect their relationship with Scorpio because they can manipulate right back.


Sagittarius (November 22—December 21)

If you're a Sagittarius, your most likely enemies are Pisces, Cancer, and Aquarius, Kerr Wright says. Sagittarius solves problems, so it can aggravate them that Pisces wants to dwell on the conflict at hand rather than taking steps to fix things.


Capricorn (December 22—January 19)

"Capricorn is a strong cardinal earth sign. They are known for their hard work and dedication to achieve their professional goals to build a solid reputation and public standing," Furiate says. "Capricorn may perceive the other cardinal signs to include Aries, Cancer and Libra as a threat."

Capricorn can see Aries as too full of themselves, which can cause problems between the two of them. Cancer is too meek and mild and Capricorn doesn't appreciate that. Finally, Libra tends to aim to please people, but since Capricorn believes they have to forge their own path, that can cause issues, Furiate explains.


Aquarius (January 20—February 18)

The most likely enemies for Aquarius are Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn. Taurus and Aquarius struggle to see things the same way, with Taurus appreciating rules and Aquarius preferring to do their own thing.

Ultimately, there are likely workarounds for a lot of the conflicts you might have with other signs — even those most likely to be your enemies — so that you can get along much better. But knowing who you might be prone to clash with can explain a lot about your interactions in the meantime.
