Did you ever wonder where those feelings of envy, jealousy and possessiveness came from? Or why you feel so anxious when someone flirts with your boyfriend while your friend seems to take it all in her stride? Why are you so insecure? How come you can’t feel relaxed? After all, you so looked forward to having a relationship and now you can’t seem to enjoy it because you are always on the lookout for predatory people who just want to steal your man and wreck your happiness. What’s your jealousy rating? How jealous are you according to your zodiac sign?
Aries March 21 – April 19
You may not even know you are jealous until the angry monster inside suddenly rears up and explodes venom all over the place. You didn’t notice that your feelings of security were being gradually undermined and your emotions left uncomfortably exposed. Then one thing; one tiny, unimportant remark or glance sent you over the edge. Your partner is like, “Whoa! Where did that come from?” And oddly, you feel the same. Your jealous anger subsides just as fast as it appeared. Jealousy rating 8/10.
Taurus April 20 – May 20
Loyal, reliable Taurus. Why isn’t everyone like you? You trust without conditions, and then one day you notice that something is going on. Right under your nose. It’s probably nothing, but it doesn’t look like nothing. You realize that you have been taken for granted. Luckily, jealousy works in your favor. You use it like a slingshot to take yourself out of the situation. You’re gone. Their loss. You’re good. Jealousy rating 3/10.
Gemini May 21 – June 20
As the biggest flirt on the planet, you hate it when someone dishes out the same treatment to you. And because you know exactly what’s going on—which is usually nothing much—your jealousy kicks in. You know the frisson of delight in a surreptitious dalliance. And you can’t bear the idea of your love doing the same thing. You don’t explode or create a scene. Instead you close up, stop talking, throw a few dirty looks and take the passive-aggressive, sulky route. Jealousy rating 6/10.
Cancer June 21 – July 22
As someone who needs security as much as they need oxygen, when your partner shows signs of interest in another, it feels like a dagger to the heart. Jealousy feels like poison and you hate that it’s coursing through you, but you don’t know what to do. Somehow, you keep it together. You smile. You act normal. But underneath it’s all torment and turmoil. You wait to see what happens. If all is well, relief is the order of the day. Should there be signs of real unfaithfulness, you are prepared to kick them out for your own well-being. Jealousy rating 7/10.
Leo July 23 – August 22
You parade your possessiveness like a golden cloak, Leo. It’s part of who you are. You love your stuff, and your partner is part of all that. You might not notice at first because after all, you are the catch of the century. But when you do cotton on to possible flirting, you openly express your jealousy, there’s no holding back. You make your demands. You lay down the rules and the conditions. It’s your way or the highway. Jealousy rating 6/10.
Virgo August 23 – September 22
Your jealousy, once it starts, does not stop. Not only does it torment you, it also torments your partner. You cannot let up. You examine everything they do and say for signs of straying, relentless in your quest to find guilt. To the degree that your searching for evidence verges on stalking. The problem is that your behavior will often send them into someone else’s arms. At which time you will say, “I knew I was right not to trust them.” Jealousy rating 9/10.
Libra September 23 – October 22
You do get deeply jealous, Libra, but you do your best to hide it, or at least, disguise it. It slips out in the odd remark but no-one would guess that you are feeling quite unsettled. Of course, you know very well that you are mostly likely to be the flirty one in your relationship. That’s why you notice it right away if your partner shows signs of interest in another. You usually go very quiet and withdrawn until you make up your mind about the future of the relationship. Jealousy rating 6/10.
Scorpio October 23 – November 21
Scorpio, you are awarded the crown (or tiara) of jealousy. No-one can do jealous like you. Stormy, passionate and possessive, you take jealousy to a new level. You give your loyalty and love wholeheartedly, and you expect the same commitment from your partner. If, however, you think they are not quite as devoted as you are, the barbs appear. You even accuse your partner of infidelity when someone with nice hair sits in front of you at the theater. You just know he’s looking at her and wishing he was sitting with her and not you. Jealousy rating 10/10.
Sagittarius November 22 – December 21
Like the happy puppy you are, you rarely notice anything to make you jealous. You are confident and at ease in your own skin, so you might think that other people are jealous of you. And you are probably right. Just hope you don’t sit in front of a Scorpio next time you go to the movies. Jealousy rating 1/10.
Capricorn December 22 – January 19
Envy is your worst trait, Capricorn. And it might also be a good one in that feeling a little bit jealous makes you do better. It’s probably worse when you are young because you don’t know where to put the feelings, but as you get older you begin to understand that they are generally unfounded. Of course, being faithful and loyal, you expect the same from your partner. When your suspicion antenna is raised, you are as snoopy and nosy as the next person. Jealousy rating 6/10.
Aquarius January 20 – February 18
Aquarius is all sweetness and light when it comes to their partner flirting. They smile and laugh and show the world how tolerant and modern they are, “It’s fun to flirt, isn’t it?” Underneath they are as insecure and jealous as the rest of us. Eventually you will concede that, “Enough is enough.” And show your amour the door. Jealousy rating 7/10.
Pisces February 19 – March 20
If Pisces get jealous, they don’t show it. They are so easy-going that it doesn’t appear to form part of their personality. And yet… and yet… there is a streak of jealousy deep down that expresses itself in self-pity, or perhaps sadness. They are often the sign that is duped by their cheating partner. Still they prefer to trust and wait rather than confront their fears head on. After all, it might not be anything, and it might just go away. Jealousy rating 4/10.
