Which Zodiac Signs Are Most Optimistic–and Which Ones Are Doom and Gloom?

Are you a “glass half full” kind of person, or do you always jump to the worst-case scenario? It might have something to do with your Zodiac sign. Some signs are more naturally inclined to be optimists, while others gravitate toward pessimism. Which one are you? Find out below!

Total Optimists

These signs always look on the bright side of life and believe that everything will work out for the best.

Aries (March 21-April 19) 

Aries believes in winning. Failure is not an option for this energetic Fire sign, and they keep their eyes on the prize at all times.

Leo (July 23-August 22) 

Leo is all about the good life. They have fun and look great doing it. Who needs to worry about boring stuff you can’t change? Worry gives you wrinkles, darling.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) 

Good vibes only! Sagittarius lives in the moment, enjoying the simple pleasures. They think everything will work out eventually–and from their perspective, it usually does.

Pisces (February 19-March 20) 

Pisces can be a bit of a melodramatic sign, experiencing both the highs and lows of life on a different frequency than most people. However, they are strong believers that every fairy tale deserves a happy ending.

Cautiously Hopeful

These folks take a balanced view of life. They prepare for the worst and hope for the best. You might consider then pragmatic rather than optimistic or pessimistic.

Taurus (April 20-May 20) 

Sensible, grounded Taurus doesn’t get too worked up about what might happen in the future. They’ve worked hard and prepared for most things life might throw at them.

Libra (September 23-October 22) 

When it comes to balance, Libra rules the Zodiac. They know that, in the long run, good and bad will always balance out–and even if things are tough now, they’ll get better before long.

Virgo (August 23-September 22) 

Virgo approaches the question of whether a glass is half empty or half full of logic. If you drank half the liquid, it’s half empty. If you filled it only halfway, it’s half full. They don’t understand why people are still having this debate.

Capricorn (December 23-January 20) 

Capricorn is a planner. But they’re also one of the hardest-working, most determined Zodiac signs. They believe that you can overcome any setback if you try hard enough.

Mega Pessimists

Some Zodiac signs are more inclined to focus on the dark side. They’re not bad people, but they can really bring down the mood.

Gemini (May 21-June 20) 

Gemini knows way too much about what’s going on in the world to ever be an optimist. They pick up tidbits of information everywhere, and when they put it all together, the outlook seems bleak.

Cancer (June 21-July 22) 

Cancer is a naturally anxious sign who worries constantly about the people they love. They imagine catastrophes–and expend a lot of needless energy getting upset over things that haven’t happened yet.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21) 

Scorpio is in tune with the dark side of human nature. The glass is empty because they already drank it before someone else could. When something bad happens, Scorpio is never surprised. In fact, they may have caused it.

Aquarius (January 20-February 18) 

Aquarius is a fascinating Zodiac sign because, even though they are deeply pessimistic, they still keep trying to make the world a better place. They’ll continue fighting for lost causes long after most people would have given up.
