Your Zodiac and Your Patience
It is already known that Zodiac affects our behavioral patterns. Our Zodiac signs have an impact on how we act and decide in dealing with different situations. We may be passionate fire signs, intuitive water signs, creative air signs, or grounded earth signs.
Patience is an essential value we must always possess. If we let our impatience prevail, we will lose control of the things that are happening around us. Only when we have total control of our patience will we reach sound decisions. Patience is indeed a virtue.
If you have trouble understanding your patience (or impatience), trace your Zodiac. It can explain why some people have the patience of a saint or the impatience of an angry soul. You may not believe it, but your Zodiac sign has a lot to say about your character, your patience included.
The Zodiac Signs Ranked from Least to Most Patient
Which are the most patient zodiac signs? Your Zodiac sign reveal so much bout you. This includes how you react when put in a tight situation. Do you let things slide or do you act rash?
Below is a list of the Zodiacs ranked from the least to most patient.
12. Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Aries is the Zodiac ruled by Mars; the god of war, aggression, and competition. Mars is the scary commander that likes things done his way or else fire will escalate very quickly. Aries’ element is fire, which means they are not afraid to face challenges head on. They are also cardinal signs, which make them have the tendency to be rash in dealing with challenges
They are the last in the rank of the most patient Zodiac signs. Just imagine having the traits of Mars and being a fire cardinal sign. Aries are fiery rams with an explosive temper. They become very impatient when people slow them down. This roots in their sense of urgency, they are very impulsive in approaching tasks.
When you trigger their patience, Aries will have outbursts to let the steam out. But once the steam has left them, the rage will not stay long. If you can, keep up with their pace, and you’ll have a good time with them. They may be very impatient and are always ready for battle, but they are cheerful happy people.
11. Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Jupiter rules Sagittarius, the planet that brings expansion and progress. Sagittarius is a mutable fire sign. This means people with this sign are spontaneous and exciting. Because of their mutable sign, they like to interact with people and make connections. They love a good old challenge, hence they take risks without hesitation. Their passionate approach to life gets them in trouble all the time.
Like volcanoes, Sagittarius rarely get angry but when they do it is an explosion. Patient is not a word you could use to describe them. Sagittarius are notorious for being commitment-phobes. They always seek expansion but they easily get bored and walk away from it to start a new project. Sagittarius make impulsive decisions but does not commit to them.
Their commitment issues place them second to last in the most patient zodiac sign. Sagittarius may be very impatient but their passion for advancement can become an inspiration for other people.
10. Leo (July 23 – August 22)
People who have this fixed fire sign are the most stubborn people. Leos are the boldest sign which makes them natural leaders. They are the only Zodiac that is not ruled by a planet, the Sun governs over them. So in astrology, Leo is the most stable Zodiac. They are dependable but need constant reassurance.
Because the Sun never goes in retrograde, Leo people can be very self-centered and proud. Like the Sun, these lions love to be the center of attraction. They think of themselves as the king of the signs and get frustrated when they are not seen. The lack of attention offends them because Leos believe that the world revolves around them. Do not ever attempt to ignore this fixed fire sign, or else you will feel a lion’s wrath.
You do not want to mess with a Leo. These people, like a lion, are always angry. But just like a lion, they are also loyal, brave, and true. The traits of a Leo ranked them third to last in the list of the calmest Zodiac sign. Who wouldn’t be in the bottom three if you constantly feel agitated and angry?
9. Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)
Capricorn is a cardinal Earth sign governed by Saturn. Being associated with the Earth, they anchor their goals and ambitions to reality. They set clear objectives and pour hard work into reaching their goals. But despite their diligent personality type, Capricorns love to whine and complain.
Ruled by Saturn, Capricorns are very particular with time. Although they appear quiet and calm, they panic and get irritated when everything is in a rush. They are the type of people who believe that you should not rush things but take things slow. Their patience will plummet when their expectations are not materializing.
When feeling frustrated, Capricorns hide. Beware when you test a Capricorn’s patience because once they start complaining, they will never stop. But after a lot of complaining, Capricorns will hide in their rooms to calm themselves down.
8. Virgo (August 22 – September 22)
Mercury rules Virgo, the planet which goes into retrograde very often. Hence, they are highly skilled in trade and arts. Virgo is a mutable Earth sign and is famous for being a perfectionist. The stereotype of a Virgo’s personal space is clean and organized. Their mutable sign kicks in with their interest in organizing other people’s lives. They have a reputation for being gossipy and nosy.
As nosy as they are, Virgos are passive-aggressive. Their Marsian childlike qualities fade away when faced with confrontations. Virgos notice every detail, and when things are not the way they want them to be, they will throw a fit. You might not notice their impatience, but deep inside they are losing it.
The tiniest things can be the cause of Virgo losing their patience. Nothing can escape their judgy eyes, they notice everything.
7. Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Uranus, the planet known for being adaptable and innovative rules over Aquarius. The planet influences them to abandon old behaviors and remove outdated systems. They want to make a change in the world. Its name might confuse a lot of people, but Aquarius belongs to the Air signs. These fixed air signs are progressive thinkers who are also very humble. They are open minded and social but come off as cold and detached.
Aquarius have brilliant minds but they get frustrated when other people think otherwise. They get impatient with people perceived as lesser intelligent. Most of the time, Aquarius blow up due to their stubborn mentality. But when they explode, it means that they have reached their breaking point. Aquarians are empathetic people who despise exposing their emotions. As a result, they bottle up their frustrations and impatience.
Aquarians “fake” their patience which puts them in the middle of the list of the most patient Zodiac sign. They can be very patient or the opposite if they want.
6. Scorpio ( October 23 – November 21)
Scorpios is often mistaken as a fire sign because they overflow with passion and power. But in fact, Scorpio is a fixed water sign. Their emotional nature makes them honor real connections and feelings. Like water, they go with the flow. You can compare a Scorpio to a lake, calm until disturbed by violent storms.
Two planets rule over Scorpio; Mars and Pluto. Mars influences their passion and desires. Pluto shapes their compassion for the people around them. They value loyalty and authenticity which make them the best companion.
Scorpios make it to the sixth rank in the most patient Zodiac sign because as patient as they can be, they are threatening creatures. Despite being compassionate, be wary when you get on their bad side. A Scorpio knows how to keep their cool until they lose it. But they do everything they can to keep their impatience to themselves. You just need to walk on eggshells around them if this happens.
5. Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Gemini embodies a mutable air sign. Like air, they breeze their way through life. They go from one end to the other end of the spectrum in a blink of an eye. This attribute is the influence of their mutable modality which likes change and transformation. Gemini are also witty people thanks to Mars, the planet that rules them.
They are known as the celestial twin constellation which represents their duality. Their duality gives them the advantage to see different viewpoints of a situation. Because of this, they are often mistaken as two-faced, but in reality, they hardly ever have a secret agenda.
Their twin personalities also reflect their patience. While Geminis are generally calm and patient, their other twin is not. Also referred to as their alter ego, this other side of them is as wild as a bear out in the open.
4. Taurus (April 20 – May 21)
