This Is The Most Painful Way You Could Possibly Die, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Sean Kobi Sandoval

Aries: March 21st – April 19th

A house fire. 

You want to go out with a bang. You’re always jumping out of planes and climbing mountains and driving fast cars — taking dangerous, life-threatening risks — so you’d hate to die in a ‘mundane’ way. You also hate feeling like you’re useless, like you aren’t strong enough to take care of yourself, so it would kill you to watch all of your stuff (and all of your loved ones) go up in flames with you. 

Taurus: April 20th – May 20th

A plane crash.

Not only would you hate feeling the plane dip and knowing that your life was about to end, but you would hate that other people are dying alongside you. People that you loved, people that you were supposed to be spending an exciting vacation with but are going to die beside you — and all you can do is hold their hand while it happens.

Gemini: May 21st – June 20th

Being buried alive.

You hate being confined and hate being alone. You would get claustrophobic the second you realized what was happening, that you were stuck beneath the dirt with no way of calling out for help. With no one there to say goodbye and tell you it was all going to be okay.

Cancer: June 21st – July 22nd

Being murdered by someone you love.

When you love someone, you love with all of your heart. You see the best in your partners and look beyond the red flags. So if the person you ended up marrying rested a knife against your throat, you would be shocked — and devastated. The betrayal would hurt more than the blade.

Leo: July 23rd – August 22nd

The electric chair.

You would hate being locked inside of a jail cell, being forced to suffer through your miserable existence, counting down the days until the end of your life. But even more than that, you would hate that everyone believes you’re guilty. You would hate going to your grave, having everyone think that you’re some sort of monster.

Virgo: August 23rd – September 22nd

An animal attack. 

You’re an animal lover, so the last thing you would ever want is to hurt a living thing — or to have one hurt you. That’s why you would hate to be attacked by a bear or torn to pieces by a dog. It would suck to know that something you love so much caused you so much pain. 

Libra: September 23rd – October 22nd

Being trapped.

Your worst fear is dying alone. That’s why you would hate being lost on an island or kidnapped and thrown in a basement to rot. Before you go, you want a chance to say goodbye to your loved ones. To tell them you love them one last time.

Scorpio: October 23rd – November 21st

Committing suicide.

It sounds bizarre, but you’re more afraid of yourself than of any of the people around you. You’re worried about what you could do, what you’re capable of during times of distress. That’s why your worst enemy is yourself. 

Sagittarius: November 22nd – December 21st


You would hate for your life to end, because you did something stupid. Because you let yourself go overboard and become self-destructive. You would hate knowing that you accidentally killed yourself, that the reason your partner is a widow and your parents are childless is all because of you.

Capricorn: December 22nd – January 19th


You love having control, and you’re terrified of losing it. That’s why you would hate for a wave to sweep you out to sea, for you to be pulled beneath the water with no way of finding rescue. You would hate feeling powerless as your life slipped away.

Aquarius: January 20th – February 18th

Dying in your sleep.

You’re creative, an artist, which is why you’d want to die in a poetic way. You don’t want your life to end in the middle of the night and for a loved one to find you in the morning. That’s way too boring. Too cliché. And you feel like the ending of your story should be epic.

Pisces: February 19th – March 20th

Dying inside of a hospital.

You don’t want to die slowly from a disease. You don’t want your family members to sit there and watch you decay. You don’t want to cause them that kind of pain. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
