The Worst Sign In The Zodiac To Be Is…

I was talking to satori about the Mechanic who does the tech stuff on this site.  “I thanked him,” she said. “I thanked him for the forum.”

“Yeah, he built them. He also built the Astro Dispatch and that was no easy feat!  That thing in incredible and he doesn’t even know any astrology. Can you imagine?  400 astrologers benefit from that thing. They don’t even know his name.  All this work and it’s thankless.  Want my advice?  Whatever you do, don’t be a Virgo. If you are ever being born and someone says, wanna be a Virgo?  Say no.”

What sign would you advise against being?



The Worst Sign In The Zodiac To Be Is… — 72 Comments

  1. I agree with Virgo, but I’m going to take it a step further – don’t be a Gemini with a Virgo Moon. Oh my, having seen this OCD/ADD mess in action, it’s enough to make you tired just watching it. 😀

  2. Libra! who wants to always be the last person to make up their mind!

    finally figured out why I have sooo many Virgo Sun/rising people in my life and as clients (as well as Pisces) . . . my Moon-Neptune conjunction & 12th house Sun/water sign rising gives me a Pisces feel. glub, glub, glub 🙂

  3. Hey Neith, i would have to agree with you!
    I also read somewhere that libra is the only inanimate sign in the zodiac. Scales don’t have life in them! Don’t know what to make of that. im libra too, by the way lol.

  4. I’m not an astrologer, only a curious interested follower, but I have NEVER understood Capricorns. What are their virtues except being persistent at being plodding?

  5. Yah well some of us didn’t get the choice and get stuck with Virgo stelliums to boot. So unfair.

    Everyone else gets to run and play and fish and fly and we get to stay home and take vitamins and reorganize cabinets. Sheesh.

    Even I hate myself.

  6. the worst sign is cancer of course. so sensitive! too sensitive for this world! (puts hand to head and faints) 😉

    virgos are amazing but can drive me batty. i have a virgo moon and am close with another virgo moon and her intellectual hair splitting is maddening. but she’s deeply deeply compassionate

    lol togi — yeah my virgo moon loves to read about supplements and vitamins and then i get too anxious to take them!

  7. I would NEVER EVER EVER want to be a Virgo… EVER…

    … even though I have two planets in Virgo 😉

    And awwww… I like Cancer, moonpluto! 🙂 However, I can see how much a pain it is to be a Cancer. I have a moon in Cancer and I believe this is my strongest of all planets. I’m extremely hypersensitive and with the Pluto square – it’s an even bigger pain in the ass -_-

  8. Scorpio has such a bad reputation for the possibilities of really dark, depressing, Bad Stuff. Drugs, mental illness, what not – more so, it seems, than the other signs. There’s a definite shadow over Scorpio.

    I’m also in agreement with the person that said Libra, too. It’s hard having planets in Libra.

  9. as per my opposition between Moon & Sun, I’m torn between Libra and Aries…if I HAD to make a choice *gasp* 😉 I’d have to say Libra, ONLY b/c I’ve known so many Libran women who were off their effin’ rocker…I’ve never met a sane one (yet! I hope there’s at least one out there!!) 😉

    p.s. I fully admit that my Libran Moon makes me off my rocker *emotionally* 😀

  10. Oh lunalie: didn’t know u had moon in cancer. Remembering various posts of yours, that makes Sooo much sense to me now. You seem very sensitive yet you have that double aries thing–

    I do like my cancerian self but always feel like I don’t quite… fit.

    I don’t know any scorpios these days– just a couple of mars in scorpio…

    As for libra. Hell, I’d love to be pretty and charming like libra (that’s how I seem them anyway)

  11. As a Cap with Virgo moon I think it hilarious they’ve both got a beating here (cap only once but it was a doozy!) I love Libra’s, I love how cute they are when they wander around unable to make up their minds, and they love when I make their decisions for them. All the cancer’s I know are soft and squishy (emotionally, not physically) and huggable. Scorpio men are fascinating, the women are a bit full on. Same with Aquarius males, my 2 best male friends are Aquarius but I don’t get the women at all. So as a woman, I’d think to be a Scorpio or Aquarius would be very hard work.

  12. Virgo sun or more than 2 virgo planets! Since we know that an accepting positive attitude toward one self is paramount for happiness, this is a scab picker with a magnifying glass–the self defeater’s dream machine. And, Scorpio loves to watch!

  13. i actually like being a virgo, but i’m kind of a freak.

    i wouldn’t want to be a capricorn. y’all get SO stressed and anxious about stuff from the ones i know anywho.

  14. Cancer drives me nuts because of all the damn crying. My Cancer grandma was a huge sobber. Pisces too.

    Capricorns luuuuuuuuuuuuuv work. On the one hand, that’s great, but on the other hand, I’m not gonna date one again and get dumped on Valentine’s Day so he can go work. I think Caps are fabulous as long as they don’t try to get romantically involved. Actually, that’s not true. You can date a Capricorn, just don’t date one who’s allowed to work overtime. Make darned sure you pick one who has a job where they are only allowed in the building from 8-5.

    • I’m sorry that I was born on the 14th of July! I can’t help being born. Cancer is just my sun sign, but my moon sign is Capricorn and my rising sign is libra

  15. My two cents on top of everything else- At least Virgos can get a feeling of solid accomplishment. “Yeah! I did that!” And sometimes little things make them really happy. Like getting the perfect color of paint mixed.

  16. Haha your so right Elsa, Scorpios love being Scorpios. I have asked myself the serious question of “what is the best sign in the Zodiac?” the answer was Scorpio ofcourse! But what sign would I NOT want to be would be Gemini or Virgo, to much insecurity and bull-shitting around.

  17. Hmm…

    I do not envy Pisces, though that may be due mostly to my history of (platonic) friendships with them, it starts great but eventually ends in a Cold War that never ends (since I’m always or nearly always the one who ends it).

    I envy Libra social skills, but their indecisiveness makes me question how Cardinal that sign supposedly is. I certainly wouldn’t want to be involved with one unless they had almost as many fixed planetary placements as I do.

    I envy the Capricorn archetype for their work ethic, but I’d rather be a Scorpio if I had a choice in changing my Sun sign (though I guess my Pluto aspects and 8th house asteroids might make up for the fact that it will never happen).


  18. i don’t myself as very virgo (ascedant)
    but i am tired of spending so much energy trying to help people who don’t want to be helped. what’s the point?

  19. I wouldn’t want to be a Pisces, they lack energy, get bullied easily, and don’t like the material world, which I think you must appreciate if you are to cherish God’s gifts. I would rather be an Aries. But being a Sagittarius with Mars in Aries is good enough!

    I like Pisces people, but I wouldn’t want to be them.

  20. Errr… all this time… all these people & we have exactly proven satoris point here!

    29 posts & STILL no one has Thanked the Mechanical Tech Guy =)

    *-*-*THIS SITE IS AWESOME*-*-*

  21. yeah, thanks mechanic! I’ve often wondered what you look like…

    I simply have to stick up for Cappies here. They’re fabulous in bed. All that persistence and earthiness, as their partner you aren’t leaving until you’re fully satisfied. Besides, your legs are like jellyfish…

    I know, I know…you’re thinking that dull plodder? Um, they are WAY different without clothes on, way different. For a few hours, they actually relax and stop thinking about work.

  22. Gah. I don’t recognise any of the portraits of Capricorn here (‘cept Dixies)and am sick of arguing with people about it. So I think it’s definitely the worst to be, if the worst is defined as most misunderstood.

  23. Aries seems to be a tough – maybe challenging is more accurate, IDK – energy to integrate if one is a woman; at least that’s what I’ve taken from the ram women I’ve known. The ambition and absolute drive to “win” – some parts of society just don’t seem to feel this is cool when it’s coming from a woman. The directness, too, can put people off or intimidate them or whatever. I find it admirable but then again, I have often been “criticized” for same (maybe b/c I have Aries on the midheaven?)

  24. Big hugs, all around, and coffee/tea/shots too. I live here now. You can not get rid of me, just let me know when I’m being a Virgo. 🙂
    We sincerely do mean well, and that sense of accomplishment is most felt when it’s on the personal level (and good “work”). When we can’t make that work work out…oh man. Just let us polish the spiderwebs until we level out, and check in to make sure we’re still breathing and have something to fix or clean…

    Thanks SO MUCH for this post. It hits my own “today” topics on every level:

    I’m actually happy as heck to be me, now that I understand that it’s my job and I’m darn skippy good at it…and that SOME people do appreciate it.


    YEAY EVERYBODY! You wouldn’t really trade your stars, would you? Our “weaknesses” are the only thing that make our strengths manageable.

    Scorpios, feel free to chime in with a summary of all that in one koan. Sexy jerks. 😉

    Back to my homework. More hugs.

  25. McKenna @ 30: 29 posts & STILL no one has Thanked the Mechanical Tech Guy =)

    Liz thanked the Mechanic @ 18, which was over a year ago. I’ll thank the Mechanic myself, one mechanic to another: Thanks, dude!

    Elsa @ 12: But Scorpios love being Scorpios…

    Well, I personally can’t think of anything to recommend it. It just buys a lot of trouble, with not much in the way of return. Speaking as someone with Venus in Libra, *three* planets in Virgo and Mars in Cap along with the sun in Scorp.

    Doing Virgo stuff tends to be thankless yes, but it doesn’t cause all kinds of trouble the way doing Scorpio stuff does.

    [‘We all have our crosses to bear… etc. etc.’]

  26. Sag is trouble. My friends are Cap & Libra usually. Gemini into head games Taurus tries to boss me. I like Aries close to the ingress. They are entertaining. Scorpio is evasive, cancer; controling, pisces has it’s nose in a book, leo drama Qs. Virgo’s are aloof and nosey.

    I see my shadow, I’m here on earth and grateful.

  27. But worse than that I would hate to be a cancer

    virgo people have a brilliant sense of humor – taurus can be a bit too slow and capricorn are so convoluted they don’t even know it at least scorpios know that they have that going!
    I envy pisces, and libra and gemini and aquas something about them is just so ethereal – leos are the best friends one can have (even with their big egos) and sags are just lovable

  28. Sun sign? I’m surprised noone ever mentions Aquarius. The sun is in detriment in this sign. The ones I’ve met always seem a tad.. broken.

  29. Try being a Cap with Scorpio rising and moon in Scorpio with 3 other planets in Cap all conjuncting my sun. Then I have a venus in Sag in the first house which makes me look like a light hearted, and fun loving kind of woman without a care in the world. That my friends is difficult.

  30. Really? The sun’s in detriment in Aquarius? I never knew that before. (That makes me a double detriment then b/c my moon’s in Capricorn, LOL!) Buuuuut the sun’s my chart ruler, which I’ve always heard fortifies a person’s sun sign, so I’m safe! Definitely not broken. A tad demented, yes. But in one piece. 🙂

  31. I love being a Scorpio! 🙂 also like a lot my Aquarius rising, it’s just my Pisces Moon that I would like to change.

  32. my heart is aching for taurus as of late…i think it’s tough in this day and age..of instant gratification and less appreciation for the quality of things…things including both objects and relationships

    this comes to my mind after my 85 year old taurus mother shares with me the objects she treasures and has treasured for years and years…..she values the history, the craftsmanship, the person who gave it to her or the place she found it, and the story behind it….

  33. Dixie – 🙂 Merc rx got to me early too and blammed my computer out all day but I got back just in time to see your comment in the “recent” box and confirm with you that we have excellent taste, LOL!

  34. Im a virgo and yes can be a pain at times as all the signs can be. Im not OCD, can be critical, straight forward and very lovable great in bed and loyal. So I am sorry you have met such horrible Virgos but we are not all the same. I find Aries, Leos too selfish,liars, and not trustworthy & Scorpios selfcentered annoying demanding. Cancer can be cry babies I agree. Aquarius-NOT.

  35. Virgo sun
    Gemini moon
    Scorpio Venus
    Taurus Mars

    Oh and happily married to a Capricorn sun
    leo moon
    Sagi Venus
    Pisces Mars 20 plus years if it’s going to work it will.

  36. See how many posters and how few are Pisces? The comment that sometimes Pisces frighten others? Different doesnt make us better (or worse) all around in that we are unclined to strive to see and understand things (especially others), often to the point of observations most others would not have thought of. Strange to many, yes this would seem, and often in fact can be. When we stand our ground we can be of the utmost, uniquely powerful in understanding, while tempered even more by selflessness and humility. Thus i just contradicted myself in seeming to say how unique and undetstand and powerful we can be.. Yet it is true, and the very reason pisces arent liklely to blow thier own horn or say how they’re the best, and i’d belive why most pisces would not say any 1 sign or personality is per better than another.

  37. I think ur right my best friend is a gemini and im a virgo i think i have ocd and my friend is too hyper she likes too throw thing on the floor and she just very unorganized and we get into a lot of fight ol she moved and we dont see eachother that much and everytime we see eachother at the end of the day we get in a fight but we always make up and both at the same time i feel like its ment to be and not ment to be idk and shes really different from me sometimes she annoying and i jus want her to leave and she never stops talking i can never say anything and id i do shesnot listening

  38. I don’t know; I have Mars/Vesta/Venus all conjunct in Virgo in the 3rd, and I love doing techie work for people! It’s always one of the things I volunteer for. Thankless as it may be, I get a lot of personal satisfaction anyway. Virgo really isn’t so bad!

  39. 1., Being a Virgo. You get all the crap of prejudice with nitpicking and being boring.
    2., Being a Virgo. You earn misunderstanding by acting selfless and reserved. How the hell do we want to get understood and truly accepted and known if we:
    a) don’t show our talents to the public;
    b) don’t respect ourselves for what we are;
    c) don’t show our hearts because we fear being hurt.

    I just ran into this mirror of myself at the office. My colleague (Gemini) and me did a mighty job on a project no one else wanted to do. Still they did everything they could to ruin our work. We succeed. No one is thankful. Hell, I want recognition and someone to thank my work! Our work! I don’t want to be a servant of these people. And I won’t!

  40. Well yes, you do need to be able toot your own horn a bit. I’m lucky that the rest of my personal planets are in Leo, so that’s not a problem for me (LOL). You and your Gemini colleague do great work, don’t let them give you crap, make sure they know what you are worth!

  41. I disagree with the concept of Virgo being the worst sign in the zodiac to be for several reasons.
    1. Knowing how to take care of oneself is a great thing. It’s better to have a Virgo Sun than Saturn in Virgo.
    2. My grandfather was a Virgo (I never knew him, he died before I was born, but my mother talked a lot about him), he valued education dearly, and he had a reputation for being “the doctor of the village”.
    3. Queen Elizabeth I, one of the best queens ever, was a Virgo Sun.
    4. Raquel Welch is a Virgo.
    5. I’m a Virgo Sun, and I am very content being effectively helpful to others while having a bit of limelight and recognition. Having Venus in Leo in the 6th house helps.
    6. I feel like I have better angels, and better impulse control in this lifetime. I’d rather be a Virgo Sun with a fire kite and a grand water trine, than to have a Scorpio stellium and a mutable grand cross (my impulses and my desires were really intense in the 16th century).
    7. Virgos are adaptable to historical shifts.

    However, I will say that it’s easier to have a Virgo Sun than a Virgo Moon. When Saturn was in Virgo, my progressed Moon was in Virgo, and I was more nitpicky than usual. I am so glad I have a Sagittarius Moon natally because I am more laid back than the average Virgo. And then, having progressed Moon in Scorpio makes me have more resolve and focus in general.

    I think it is very hard to be a Capricorn, a Cancer, a Pisces or a Taurus for several reasons.
    In the case of Capricorn (I’ve known two of them), it’s easy to have a dim view of humanity, and fearing any historical shifts. Yes, they can have their act together and work hard, but their negativity, and their assumption that nothing changes can be a challenge to contend with.
    In the case of Taurus, it can be difficult to broaden the mind (yes, I have known some great Tauruses with their act together and a lot of common-sense, but I have also known Tauruses who are really, really stuck in the mud).
    In the case of Cancer and Pisces (based on my experiences with Cancer and Pisces transits), it is possible to feel emotionally down for no reason.

  42. I’m an Aries girl, I don’t really get along with a Scorpio, tho we often chat and share opinions but still I feel like Scorpio people get on my nerves, every time we chat we must argue even for something ridiculous x) I just can’t stand them, they’re such liars(from my experiences) they lie even on simple things, and of course not all the Scorpio are liars.

    Another thing, I don’t get why people hate Geminis, I have many Gemini friends and they’re all nice and friendly, also understanding.

  43. Why are so many people fussing about capricorns just because they work? Being a capricorn I find it offensive but I admit it I work a lot but I don’t “love it”.I will get tired of working and cleaning and sometimes I’ll come home and won’t even give a crap about how sloppy the house the house is.In my opinion there is no best horoscope.We all have our good and bad traits.

  44. I don’t know if any sign is the worst sign because we need them all. That said, though, I sometimes want to push my Virgo stellium into a mosh pit and tell it to get over itself already!

  45. Virgo!! as a Virgo Sun, Virgo Rising, + more Virgo….ugh, don’t sign up! run the other way! Become an “as yet unknown sign, Yerbus!” Anything!

    Seriously, I have four Virgo friends and colleagues and they all say “I hate being a Virgo.” It means…being a servant, giving and giving, being mocked for helping and serving, then vilified if you don’t offer to run an errand after being run over by truck while feeing orphans: “well if you’re gonna BE THAT WAY, and get all MOODY, we’ll just take your wallet before you go into surgery and you can THINK about helping those who matter and not just about yourself!” whhhhhaaaaaat?

    “Can you work for us for free? CAn you clean all the things and do everything? Can you do my work because I don’t feel like and don’t know how, then let me turn it in as my own and get a raise? I know YOU won’t mind the 70 hour weeks because our dept is totally f&#d up, but we are all going home now because we have stuff to do.” Oh you’re moody! You want food? What? By the way, my dreams aren’t coming true, so can you pay for me while i lay around? What is wrong with you always at work, why are you working so much, you need to relax and stop being so serious but first can you give me two million dollars for something I want, I’ve been having such fun on my vacation but now I want a boat – see- SOME of us know how to relax! Give me everything! What do you mean you can’t afford a new car? I know we asked you to find out what is wrong with the project and to fix it so we can save the company/season/profit goals, and you quietly did so and turned it in as requested after three 80 hour weeks, but why are you telling us something is wrong and how to make it better? pretty arrogant aren’t you! By the way we are using your work, and it works, but watch that attitude.”

    And the best part — horoscopes/astrologers who write scopes advising “Virgo that this is NOT the time to be lazy! Time to WORK! Stop laying about in a dream! Think of OTHERS! Don’t buy that carton of milk today, you need to watch your finances! DOn’t expect anything! Virgo, you’ve had a hard time these past equinox-stellerunium-magmahatches, which have lasted for VIrgo since 1812, but, chin up, you will enjoy a very positive day on July 12, 2016 from 10:31 pm until midnight! But don’t travel or spend anything and avoid people.”

    Rant over. Guess what sign I am?

    • oh – I forgot: Virgo, throw off your glasses and librarian sweater and allow yourself to FEEL! Virgo, did you know you are actually the Roman Whore of the zodiac, ready to lose your mind! Virgo, you can find love from August 2 thru the 3rd at noon this year, don’t blow it, this cycle won’t return for 32 years! Special note to Virgos who recently found love: sorry to tell you but the new moon will reveal he is a crackhead killer spy who is actually a robot from space too and he is robbing you and destroying your village as you read this; we told you that Virgos should have concentrated on work and serving and not just yourself, what the hell were you thinking! Virgo had better know that for the next 30 years, they need to focus on work. The August 2 to 3 at noon party is OVER, grindstone time, go scrub someone’s porch and do NOT buy new shoes, ever!”

      Rant now over. 🙂

        • I like being a Virgo. I like being self-possessed. I like being able to handle the stuff no one else wants to handle. I like that I am motivated to do it not for external reward, but because it needs to be done. These are very good qualities to have. But I think we are the “worst” sign to be to people who don’t understand how we operate, i.e. everyone else.

  46. Decan 2 Virgo here .Male 48 . I have no right to stereotype .However , I am certain many Virgoans, as I ,am here because we know we are screwed . Must fix problem .Being hyper-analytical means you have to identify a problem first .That should explain everything. Not even close. It is Nature and Nurture . The basis of Astrology is Nature . Virgos were conceived during the peak of Pagan holidays with all sorts of impaired “indiscretions” ,bad judgement tensions ,quarrels ,intoxicants and we all know holidays are horrible at every level, shallow and facadical.
    If you know a little more about Astrology , you will know that conceptions are timed to meet a projected alignment and birth (crowning) is induced or delayed accordingly.
    Now Nurure aspect for Virgo. Concieved and carried during super-elevated cortisol levels ,The very likely illegitimate or regretful pregnancy will also suffer the physical and spiritual negative repercussions of regret,deception, denial and guilt . Probably not maternally bonded

  47. Hit send -oops. Part 1 below.

    (continued) by refusal of the mother to suckle or abandoned by adoption out-right. The strange propensity of the Virgo to seek vitamins is due to poor diet by the underwhelmed mother.

    Always trying to please others because we were rejected ,as we represent the living manifestation of someone else’s regret , shame or inconvenience.

    “The tooting of the horn” of which so many hate, is just the infant child left to cry in the dark room behind the closed door ,saying “look what i can do , will you love me ?

    The virgo has it really hard now because the pathological ability to fix anything is a real problem for 2 main reasons : everything is made not to last and the exacerbation of the ego means you will lose friends and jobs because people feel intimidated or perceived loss of independence by this strange “talent”.

    So as this world does it’s best to cremate care- The Virgo ,the essence of the Sacred Femenine ,manically trying to make order of this chaos and entropy-True Care indeed , asks you this : “what can I do for you ?”

    Be Well and Know Thyself.


  48. The last several posts are spot on. No one speaks of Virgo as barren simply because she is pregnant with the Deep Waters of the Soul…For a soul’s fresh renewed start.
    We are just as capable of Being spiritual, mystical, ethereal, creative, gifted, we draw criticism from an early age. After a while we simply believe it. Why bother if it isn’t seen?
    Our Love…in all forms goes to the inner core of ourselves.
    And with our Caduceus and Serpent at our Feet we conjoin with something other than Alchemical Awakening…we carry a torch, truly not wheat. Isis dove into the depths of their dark underworld searching. The torch was replaced with wheat or grain stalks.
    And intrinsically I love my Virgoness Sun/Pluto conj.
    We have a beauty misunderstood…our constellation has a sextant, raven, cup or bowl and the serpent..sextant sees the Stars, the Raven flies, the cup..filled with Waters of Life unformed matter ~
