Saltier than the rim of a margarita glass.
There are people in the world who are simply bitter, and when things don’t go their way, they have difficulty releasing their resentment. You can call it a sense of being entitled. Maybe they have struggled with one too many disappointments in life, but for whatever reason, these horoscopes tend to have salty personalities.
If you ask me, being salty takes a lot of time and effort. I mean, hey, I get salty and bitter at times too, but if you asked me if I was bitter about everything, I would have to say no.
Why? Because it’s exhausting trying to stay angry about things for a long time! I do get it, though.
There are some zodiac signs out there who hold themselves to VERY high standards and when something doesn’t go their way, it can be hard not to get salty about it. Some of them take it out on others and get really argumentative, while others take it out on themselves in a much more self-destructive way.
But really, they aren’t salty because they like it. They’re usually salty because they want everything to go off without a hitch – they’re perfectionists, after all! And if I was a perfectionist, I would get a little upset if all my hard work didn’t pay off. Heck, I get salty when things DON’T go my way. But all the time? Nah, that’s not me.
There may be very few zodiac signs out there who are saltier individually than all the rest of the zodiac signs combined, but that’s only because they take life very seriously.
Take Capricorn, for example. That zodiac sign is all about creating something from the ground up and bringing his dreams into reality. That might sound a little cheesy to you, but to him, he just wants to get everything he can out of life. And when things are more of a challenge than he’s prepared for, it can make him a little bitter. Or Scorpio, for that matter. Scorpio is a VERY intense zodiac sign.
And when he tries his hardest to make relationships that last and always put his family and friends before himself, he hopes that they would help him out in return, right? Of course, people are often a lot more selfish than he realizes, so when he feels like his loyalty has been compromised, he can’t help but act a little bitter and sometimes even get aggressive.
So, no these zodiac signs are not salty because they like it. They’re salty because it’s necessary for them to cope in a way that makes them feel better when sh*t happens.
In fact, even though these signs can be pretty scary when they’re feeling bitter, they’re probably the most loyal, hardworking horoscope signs of astrology there are.
They might get upset (and salty), but they never give up. Don’t let that make you forget, though, that these 4 zodiac signs are still salty about literally everything, according to astrology.
1. LEO (July 23 – August 22)
Leo tries to be very kind and friendly, no matter what he’s doing in life, but it doesn’t always work out that way for him. In fact, when he’s feeling especially dramatic, he can take everything out on everyone, which is just exhausting to be around. After a while, it goes from exciting to painful to watch.
Leo is super salty when he doesn’t get his way. He’s not selfish, but he can get really jealous at times. And when he’s green with jealousy, he can turn into an aggressive, arrogant person that will tear people down until he’s on top again. And when he realizes that he can’t always be the best at everything, he goes back to being salty and bitter.
2. VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
Virgo gets very salty and bitter but only about things in his own life. Since he is so critical of himself, when things don’t go exactly as he plans, it’s impossible for him to handle it without getting at least a little grumpy. Well, you see him as grumpy but inside, he’s so, so bitter.
He can get overwhelmed about even the smallest things in life, which can make him very self-destructive. When Virgo’s expectations don’t pan out the way he hopes, he takes it out on himself in a very aggressive way, even if it’s not his fault. Unfortunately, Virgo isn’t someone you can talk down from a ledge, so you need to step back and let him handle his own sh*t.
3. SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
If any zodiac sign is the definition of salty, it’s Scorpio. Saltier than an ocean, saltier than pink Himalayan salt, saltier than Salt Bae – it’s Scorpio. Scorpio believes that all of the time and effort he puts into his friendships, his work, and his family means that everything should work out in his favor, right?
But life never works out that way and even the tiniest hiccup gets him going. Being such a passionate, fiery zodiac sign certainly doesn’t help his case, either. When he’s not looking for a magnetic, new relationship, he’s looking for an excuse to take his aggression out on. And don’t even get him started on a heated conversation – Scorpio can be VERY argumentative.
4. CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)
Yes, Capricorn is fearless and hardworking, but he is also very pessimistic and unforgiving. And being an unforgiving pessimist usually means that he isn’t going to stand for your crap at all. If you’re not telling Capricorn what he wants to hear, then he’s not listening at all.
Scary? Yes. But not just because he doesn’t tolerate BS. He’s scary because when he’s in his most bitter, saltiest moods, he can get very aggressive. He likes being in charge and he loves hearing the word yes (and hates having to handle other people’s issues), so unless he’s in control of his needs are being taken care of, you can guarantee that his salty attitude is going to come out.
