Ranking the Zodiac Signs from Scaredy Cats to Brave Lions

Are you a horror junkie, or do you think Hocus Pocus is a little too scary? Halloween is fast approaching, but not everyone loves the spooky season. We’ve ranked the Zodiac signs according to their tolerance for scares. Let’s get–wait, what’s that behind you?!

Did you look? Then you might be a…

12. Pisces (February 19-March 20)

Pisces is the most easily scared of all the Zodiac signs. They have vivid imaginations, which makes scary scenarios seem all too real to them.

11. Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)

This sign seems tough, but they’re not great with blood and guts. They’d rather have fun–and being scared is, for Sagittarius, not a fun experience. Pranking people on Halloween, on the other hand… good times.

10. Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Gemini is a lightweight when it comes to spooky stuff. They are especially susceptible to scary stories and horror novels because of their connection to the written word through Mercury.

9. Leo (July 23-August 22)

Wait, you thought Leos were brave? This sign might be represented by the lion, but they are definitely scaredy cats. The only time Leo enjoys watching a horror movie is if they have somebody cute to grab onto during the scary parts

8. Libra (September 23-October 22)

Because of their fascination with balance, you may find Libras who are more open to the dark side. This sign appreciates the shadows as well as the light.

7. Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You might have expected Cancer to appear higher on this list, but they have a secret. This sign talks a lot about being a total wimp, but they are much braver than they appear.

6. Aquarius (January 20-February 18)

You know what’s really scary? Climate change. Halloween has nothing on systemic racism or corporate greed. Aquarius has some infographics they’d love to show you…

5. Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

Don’t tell anyone, but Capricorn isn’t quite as strong and stoic as they seem. This sign expends a lot of energy trying to look calm.

4. Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Let’s get something straight: Taurus is a Thanksgiving person, not a Halloween person. They don’t go in for the ghosts and goblins, and they think it’s all a bit silly.

3. Virgo (August 23-September 22)

It’s not that Virgo likes the more sinister trappings of Halloween. They’re just so practical that it’s difficult to scare them. Well, unless you show them a document with a typo.

2. Aries (March 21-April 19)

As an adrenaline addict, Aries loves a good scare. It’s like a cardio session without having to put on your gym clothes!

1. Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

Scorpio lives in the darkness. Most of them celebrate Halloween the way the rest of the world does Christmas.
