So, you went on a date with a Virgo and now you’re curious why your potential new BAE absolutely refuses to entertain the idea that aliens might actually exist. After you part ways you obviously have to google: “Why are Virgos so difficult?” If you look for explanations about people’s behavior based on their zodiac sign, you’re far from alone. In fact, this astrological googling is so common that research company SEMrush put together a study of the most googled questions about each zodiac sign. What’s more, the results returned questions about the most stereotypical traits of each sign, which means we embody more of the traits of our zodiac signs than we’re willing to admit.
Obviously, not everything applies to everyone all of the time, but an analysis of 12 months of Google searches revealed that when googlers get upset with a certain sign of the zodiac, they turn to the internet to try to explain the behavior. You know, because if it’s on the internet it must be true! It’s probably more likely that the googler had their feelings hurt, and they’re looking for an explanation as to why the person who slighted them acted a certain way. I know that when I was married to a Virgo, I was constantly searching online for reasons I felt snubbed and unappreciated in the relationship. Curious what people are asking about you? These are the most googled questions for each sign.
1. Why Are Aries So Weird?
Apparently the majority of people googling Aries wonder why Aries-born people are “weird.” Hey, first let’s establish that being weird is actually pretty badass because it means you’re willing to stand apart from the crowd. Aries are the trendsetters of the zodiac, and they tend to set the stage for what’s coming next. So, if you think what an Aries is doing is weird, consider that in a year you’ll probably think it’s cool AF. Case in point? Pretty much anything Aries-born artist Lady Gaga does.
2. Why Are Taurus So Slow?
It’s true that Taurus-born people can be stubborn and can take a really, really long time to make decisions. For impatient zodiac signs, this can be hella frustrating. However much it bothers you that a Taurus is taking their sweet time, consider that they’ve done all of the research, weighed every option, and explored every outcome so you don’t have to. In fact, you should probably thank them.
3. Why Are Geminis So Fickle?
OK, do we really have to google this one? Obviously, Gemini-born people can be fickle because they’re represented by the twins. Gemini has a duality that’s not shared by any other sign in the zodiac. This means they can turn on a dime, and it’s also why they seem to be going in two different directions at once.
4. Why Are Cancers So Moody?
One of the most sensitive signs in the zodiac, people can often be fooled by the crab’s hard exterior. However, underneath that shell is a super soft pile of goo. Cancers are homebodies, they love to take care of others, and they’re the sign most likely to declare their love for someone on the first date. But, that doesn’t mean everyone appreciates this or wants to return the favor. And, as a result, crabs get their feelings hurt on the regular.
5. Why Are Leos So Dramatic?
One word. Madonna. Leos are fueled by the sun and they want to be the center of attention all of the time, which can lead to a lot of drama. However, to be loved by a Leo is to know what it feels like to be the only person in the world. Hey, maybe drama isn’t always a bad thing after all.
6. Why Are Virgos So Difficult
As far as they’re concerned, Virgos are right about everything all of the time. If you disagree with a Virgo who has a strong opinion about something, it’s best to just let them think they’re right unless you want to spend the rest of your life in an argument. However, research from Bright Sparks revealed that, based on Nobel Prize winners, Virgo is the third most intelligent sign in the zodiac. So, they might actually be right about everything after all. Either way, it’s not worth your time to battle with a Virgo because they will always win.
7. Why Are Libras So Fake?
OK, I’m a Libra and here’s the thing to know about us. We hate conflict more than anything. Like more than stepping on a rusty nail. And, for better or worse, if we don’t like someone we probably won’t let them know directly. Not very mature. Trust me, I know. But, if a Libra is being fake to you, there’s a good chance they’re not your biggest fan.
8. Why Are Scorpios So Intense?
If you can’t stay aware from Scorpios, it’s not your fault. Scorpio-born people are the most mysterious, intense, and sexually charged sign of the zodiac. Hardly anyone can resist a Scorpio, even after all of that intense brooding becomes tiresome.
9. Why Are Sagittarius So Selfish?
Sagittarius is that friend who’s always 20 minutes late, never offers to help clean up, and disappears for weeks at a time without so much as a text. Seems pretty self-centered, right? Sagittarius isn’t actually trying to be selfish. As the most free-spirited sign in the zodiac, Sagittarius is just trying to soak up every moment of life, which can lead to them neglecting to adhere to social niceties.
10. Why Are Capricorns So Successful?
Capricorns are the unicorns of the zodiac. A Capricorn can mainline tequila all night and show up for a 12-hour shift at 6 a.m. without looking like they’ve been reincarnated as a rag. The most hardworking and successful of all the signs, Capricorns will always achieve whatever they put their minds to. While they might make it look easy, this sign has unparalleled self-discipline and pushes themselves harder than everyone else. Their success is more than deserved.
11. Why Are Aquarius So Unemotional?
Aquarius might just be the most misunderstood sign in the zodiac. This sign does not wear its heart on its sleeve, and Aquarius-born people aren’t afraid to go their own way when they want to deviate from the norm. They also don’t need to have a super touchy feely conversation about it. No, they’re not mad that you don’t want to join them, but they’re not going to change their plans to accommodate you, nor are they going to try to make you feel better about it.
12. Why Are Pisces So Attractive?
Pisces-born people are pensive and philosophical, which can make them extremely attractive to other signs that want to know what’s going inside the head of the daydreaming fish. Of all the signs of the zodiac, Pisces is the one most content to live in its head versus dealing with reality. We all need a little oblivion sometimes, and it’s pretty attractive that Pisces can transport themselves there any time they want.
