Sensitive Zodiac Signs Ranked From Most To Least Emotional

Astrology can explain a lot of our earthly affairs such as why we get along better with certain zodiac signs. Some signs are also known to gravitate toward eccentric or freedom-loving people over more serious or practical signs.

While astrology can be a helpful tool for deciding compatibility. Helping you wisely navigate your social groups: friends, romantic partners, and even colleagues. It can also provide insight into the motivations behind our behavior.

As a water sign myself (notoriously known as being emotional), I can attest to the complexity of emotions being uncomfortable at times. Often when feelings get overwhelming, I’ll be the first to absorb from the energies around me and sit with my feelings.

Learning how to read your astrological birth chart can reveal a number of traits and motivations. But a straightforward way to know if you are an overly emotional zodiac sign is to take a peek at your ruling planet. As well as what group you fall into for the elements in astrology.

For instance, if you are a water sign like me, it is likely that you heavily identify with your emotions. Since water signs tend to be highly intuitive when it comes to moods and energies.

And, if your zodiac sign is also ruled by a planet that governs aggression or intuition like Aries (ruled by Mars). You will feel more inclined to express your emotions conspicuously.   

Below is the complete list of the zodiac signs ranked from most to least sensitive.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

It’s been also said that Pisces are so overly sensitive that it is practically impossible for them not to get emotional.

Pisces are highly sensitive as they tend to process things on a very deep level. They are also extremely intuitive and compassionate, care about other people, and always wish to do their best.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Cancers are like one big ball of emotions and not just their own emotions. They are more emotionally reactive than almost any other zodiac sign. They tend to worry about how other people will react when faced with challenges or negative events.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)


Libras tend to get well even more upset when they make a decision and it turns out to be a bad one. A wrong decision can haunt Libra for a very long time.

One of the hallmark traits of highly sensitive people is their inability to make decisions quickly — and that’s Libra. It takes them longer to make a decision because they must weigh every possible outcome.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Geminis tend to have a lack of decision-making ability and direction, as they get so overwhelmed by the possibilities of things. They are always aware of other people’s feelings and would never want to do anything to upset them.

Geminis tend to take things personally. If someone is not having a good time at a party that Gemini is hosting, they will feel like it is their fault.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Highly sensitive people are detail-oriented, which is a huge Virgo characteristic.

They are a twisty, tangled configuration of emotions and you never know when you might set them off.

Additionally, they are highly aware of their surroundings and sometimes feel as if they are one big exposed nerve. They may see negativity where there is none, and they do tend to take things personally.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Scorpios may not seem hypersensitive, but they are also affected by chaos and noise. 

They tend to be also overwhelmed and overstimulated by too much activity around them.

Add to that, they do better using their laser-like focus on one task, rather than multitasking. They are so intuitive that it can seem like they are mind-readers.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Taurus doesn’t like to show their sensitive side, so they keep it hidden. But make no mistake, they have a huge sensitive underbelly.

They are very empathetic and compassionate until they think they are also being targeted, and then their fierceness comes out. 

Taurus will help those in need because they can feel what they are going through.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)


Capricorns want to be well liked and to be well thought of, which makes them very sensitive to what other people think about them. 

If they embarrass themselves or say the wrong thing, they beat themselves up about it.

Because Capricorns are conscientious, they work well with others and are always an admirable employee. But they do not like being too criticized and strive for perfection to avoid any kind of criticism.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Leos are more sensitive than they appear. If they are into someone, they care deeply about what they think and can get wounded easily if it is not positive.

However, if Leo does not care about someone, they do not care what that person says or does. Leos flip easily between sensitive and insensitive, so it is hard to categorize them as either.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Sagittarius is not sensitive. They do not consider the consequences of telling a joke at someone else’s expense. Or revealing a secret that will affect someone else’s life.

It is not that they are mean, just kind of thoughtless. They do not care if other people think of them as harsh, they are just telling it like it is. And if someone cannot take a joke, that is on them.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Highly sensitive people tend to get well overstimulated by too much activity, but Aries thrives on it. They are not also known for being too concerned with other people’s feelings. Especially when it comes to holding back on being confrontational.

If Aries wants to say something, they are going to say it, even if it hurts the other person. They are impulsive and do not put a lot of energy into thinking about the ramifications of their actions.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Aquarians are not especially sensitive, especially where other people are concerned. They are not empathetic and do not have the talent for putting themselves in someone else’s shoes.

They do not want to have anything to do with someone else’s emotions and will do whatever they can to avoid any kind of emotional upset.

What Are The Most Emotional Zodiac Signs?

One of the most frustrating parts about being an emotional sign is that you always want to fix everything (and everyone). Sound familiar? 

As emotional people, we often push aside our own needs to care for the needs of others. But if you do that for too long, you will end up burnt out and unable to take care of anyone at all! 

Learning to form energetic boundaries for yourself is important. And also when you are around frustrating people and large groups — trust me, you will be grateful for them in the long run.

The Five Most Emotional Zodiac Signs

Aries Zodiac Signs (March 21 – April 19)

Scorpio Zodiac Signs (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

Scorpios are very intuitive and sometimes paranoid by nature. This often leads them to jump to emotional conclusions about people and situations before any factual evidence is also given. This attitude can cause a Scorpio to become untrustworthy. And [hide] their emotions leaving them with a raging storm of feelings inside.

Pisces Zodiac Signs (Feb. 19 – March 20)

Pisces, your emotions are everything to you. They are how you get along with and in the world!

Some people (like Sags and Virgos) put up defensive walls around themselves—they do not want to let the world feel their emotions. On the other hand, you put your feelings out there. You soak up all the emotions and energies of the world around you, too. Sometimes to your own detriment. Just make sure to protect your energy from people who do not have your best intentions in mind.

Pisceans are notorious feelers and wear their heart on their sleeves with pride. As a water sign, you are also connected to your moods and responses. 

And because you are also under the influence of the fantasy-inducing Neptune, governor of dreams and sensitivity. You can be impulsive sometimes when expressing your feelings. 

Neptune adds a cloud of confusion so expect that if you ask Pisces what is wrong and they are unable to actually answer you. Hyper-empathy can cause Pisces to mix up their emotions and others. To the point that they easily become emotionally exhausted and drained.

Many of the world’s greatest authors, poets, and painters are some of the most emotional zodiac signs listed above.

With practice, you can channel your intense emotions for the good. Sensitivity is a superpower; you just need to learn how to harness it. Understanding that the stars have something to say about the matter is a great first step.
