The Reason Why People Love To Hate You, Based On Your Zodiac Sign


(March 21st to April 19th)

They have contradicting feelings of both envy and respect for you, due to the fact that you’re constantly on the go – trying new things, traveling to new places, and constantly opening yourself up to new experiences. They love to hate-stalk you on social media, because they can’t resist simultaneously rolling their eyes at, and admiring, the photos you share from trips you’ve been on, interesting classes you’ve taken, and the bajillion other fun things that you do.


(April 20th to May 21st)

People love to hate your attention to detail and your tendency to always go for pleasing aesthetics. Whether it’s the outfit of the day you’re posting on Snapchat, the new throw pillows you’ve added to brighten up your bedroom, or the way you somehow make a sweatshirt and a messy bun look chic and careless at the same time, people greatly enjoy being both flabbergasted and fascinated by the way you carry yourself and the way you maintain the spaces around you.


(May 22nd to June 21st)

Because you’ve also got a nervous and tense side beneath your happy-go-lucky and bubbly surface, people like to tell themselves that you’re fake. Particularly when you’re being the life of the party, making people laugh and having a blast, people get a bizarre joy out of telling themselves (and sometimes others) that you’ve got a sadder, darker side and that you’re ‘not actually that happy.’


(June 22nd to July 22nd)

You’re extremely intuitive and particularly good at reading the moods and emotions of others, which sometimes freaks people out. You often make people feel uncomfortable because they can sense that you can see right through their bullshit, so they tend to try to emphasize the fact that you’re ‘extremely moody’ or ‘way too emotional.’


(July 23rd to August 22nd)

You’re full of good ideas and your creativity seems endless, which causes some people to look up to you and hate you at the same time. The people that display the most negative energy around you are usually the ones that are unhappy with their work or the path that they are currently on in terms of career, love, etc – and because you’re so passionate about pursuing what you truly want to do with your life, it’s hard for them to be around you.


(August 23rd to September 22nd)

Virgos are particularly passionate about figuring who they are as people – understanding their wants, their needs, their fears, their vulnerabilities, etc. And when someone feels disconnected with their own life or with their truest self, there’s nothing they hate more than being around someone who is authentic and self-aware, like a Virgo. So while a lot of people feel a deep-rooted respect for you for trying to figure out who you are, their surface level gets a strange comfort from watching you deal with your own self-criticisms and self-doubts.


(September 23rd to October 22nd)

Charming and easygoing people, like Libras, are at once some of the most fun and some of the most frustrating people to be around. People are torn by the fact that you’re so likable because you’re kind and friendly to everyone,  but you’re also exhausting to be around because it basically means the spotlight is always on you.


(October 23rd to November 22nd)

Your diligence, passion, and hardworking nature are aspects of your personality that people hate just as much as they want to emulate. Your coworkers especially appreciate and dread working with you, because it means that the project will almost certainly go well, while also guaranteeing that you’ll get most of the praise and credit. You have a reputation for being respected and looked up to, so people want to be like you almost as badly as they want to knock you down.


(November 23rd to December 21st)

Optimism and a good sense of humor don’t always come as easily to other people as they come to you. While you can be an incredibly enjoyable and uplifting presence to be around, people can’t help themselves from feeling slight relief when your blind positivity occasionally comes to bite you in the ass.


(December 22nd to January 20th)

Patience, ambition, and wise decision-making – qualities that most people are desperately trying to emulate but that seem to come to you effortlessly. As much as they appreciate and look to you as a model for how to steer their life, they can’t help but feel slightly reassured and assuaged when you lose your cool or go through a rough phase of pessimism and insecurity.


(January 21st to February 18th)

Your ability to not give a shit what other people think is a way of living that everyone wants to sustain but that few people have success in. Your strong sense of independence and of your own originality frustrates people to no end. Sometimes, they just want to see you stumble like everyone else – to make them feel like their days of self-doubt and self-loathing are totally acceptable and okay and normal.


(February 19th to March 20th)

Your compassion and sensitivity are rare in this world – people appreciate it but they’re also frequently baffled by it. Sometimes, they just want to see you crack, to see you – for once – lose your temper or be mean or finally give in to gossip. They want to see some sort of outward sign (through toxic behavior) that you’re as unhappy with yourself as they are with themselves. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
