Are You One of the Most Stubborn Zodiac Signs?

Posted on December 10, 2021

A woman covers her ears and closes her eyes, appearing stubborn.

Do you often refuse to change your opinion despite good reason to do so? You might fall into the category of one of the most stubborn zodiac signs.

While you’re determined, some might see you as a serious pain in the butt! At the same time, you know what you want and know what you like. Generally, there’s not too much wrong with that — or is there?

Let’s take a closer look—who is considered the most stubborn zodiac sign?

The Top 5 Most Stubborn Zodiac Signs

1. Taurus

Taurus Dates: April 20 - May 20

Like their namesake tends to reveal, the bull of the zodiac—Taurus— will stand their ground, no matter what. In line with the Taurus ruling planet of Venus, this might become even more prominent when the topic has to do with money, love, luxury, or pleasure.

Taurus also tends to like to stick to the rigidity of previously agreed-upon plans and might actually get upset if these plans are thrown amiss. You might blame their Fixed Earth modality for that—on the one hand, grounded is good! On the other, being so focused can leave little room for flexibility.

While this can work against the good ol’ Taurus, it also makes them very reliable and persistent people. In some ways, these can be excellent attributes.

The drawback is when this stubbornness leads to uncompromisable situations, which often lead to negative repercussions on their life and worldview. In other words, Taurus could learn a thing or two about mixing things up once and a while, as well as playing along to the tune of others a bit more.

2. Capricorn

Capricorn Dates: December 21 - January 20

As a high-achiever, another focused Earth sign, Capricorn, tends to be unwavering when it comes to their high standards. From other points of view, you might see the determined Capricorn as a seriously stubborn individual.

And this fact might come as no surprise. The ruling planet of a Capricorn is Saturn, which gives way to some serious tough-love and dedication to responsibility, determination, and work.

Capricorn likes to plan out their day according to them, making them very self-sufficient individuals. Yet, this makes it tough for others to voice their opinion, especially if the day is shared. However, that stubborn determination does tend to help Capricorns achieve what they set out to do, meaning their stubbornness isn’t all bad!

3. Leo

Leo Dates: July 23 - August 22

Leo is a Fire sign that doesn’t exactly love swaying from plans. Leo is very proud and passionate. They have no problem with walking the other way when they don’t feel valued or don’t find value in something or someone.

Yet, a Leo can quickly assume they make the best judgment calls. This can make compromising and group decisions tricky with this particular zodiac sign. It can also cause others to see them as overly self-centered.

After all, Leo’s ruling planet is the Sun, the center of our solar system, thus making them a great source of power and vitality.

At the same time, a Leo is able to break out and try new things. Yet, routine is routine, and a Leo may tend to stick to particular patterns due to their inherent stubbornness.

4. Scorpio

Scorpio Dates: October 23 - November 21

If you know a Scorpio (or are one), you know how passion tends to drive this Water sign. When Scorpio attaches meaning to something, they can become one of the most stubborn zodiac signs. Their passion further backs them up, making them believe they are anything but wrong.

To add to this, Pluto is the ruling planet of the Scorpio sign. This planet signifies power and transformation, making it tough to battle a Scorpio and win. A Scorpio would much rather be the winner and the one that’s right.

Thus, when it comes to going up against this sign, it might be best to assess the situation and determine if it’s really worth fighting for.

5. Aquarius

Aquarius Dates: January 20 - February 18

While Aquarius can be open-minded, they are also a Fixed sign, which means they can be a very stubborn zodiac sign. They will gladly go against the grain, and despite critique, they will stand their ground.

When their ideas and beliefs are challenged, an Aquarius can quickly become condescending and harsh. It takes a lot to change their mind, partially due to their all-righteous convictions and eccentric attitude.

Throw in the fact that they’re an Air sign, and you might get spun around by their constant doer attitude. They tend to never slow down, which might also work against them in various ways.

The Least Stubborn Zodiac Signs

So, we’ve gone over the top five most stubborn zodiac signs, but what about the least stubborn?

Here are the least stubborn zodiac signs:

1. Pisces

Pisces Dates: February 19 - March 20

Pisces are unbelievably good at shifting their attitude and opinions to the vibe of the room. As another Water sign, they are extremely empathetic, understanding multiple sides to a situation. If you ask their opinion but have your own, they will happily go along with what you choose.

Plus, they are a Mutable sign—the most flexible modality of the zodiac. They’ll go whichever way the wind—or water—takes them. It’s tough to be stubborn when you’re so adaptable!

Pisces is also ruled by the planet Neptune, making them that much more sensitive and empathetic. This goes hand-in-hand with the fact that Pisces often truly just want love and support.

Yet, there’s one small unwavering factor when it comes to Pisces. They crave sufficient time alone to unwind and de-stress. And if they are stubborn in any realm, it’s this one.

2. Gemini

Gemini Dates: May 20 - June 21

If you’re a Gemini or know a Gemini, you know that they love ideas and engaging in fun debates or banter. This leads them to change their beliefs when they feel the situation requires it and especially if it means they are learning something new.

Gemini also has the ruling planet of Mercury— the planet of communication. This definitely helps them keep debates and banter light and fun without stepping on anyone’s toes in the process.

But watch out for Mercury in Retrograde, a time when communication might be compromised (for ALL the signs!)

A suggestion made by others for activities and fun is always welcome with a Gemini. They pounce on these opportunities as they seek out adventure and newness. For a Gemini, commitments, firm opinions, and plans are flexible, making Gemini super easy-going.

3. Libra

Libra Dates: September 23 - October 22

The final Air sign, Libra, doesn’t harbor a stubborn bone. As an innate people-pleaser, they will try their very best to go with whatever everyone else desires. They want everyone else to be happy.

This is further demonstrated by their ruling planet, Venus. Venus is the planet of love, harmony, and relationships, which encompasses all that a Libra is about. Being stubborn doesn’t tend to fall in line with any of this.

Plus, they are a Cardinal sign, full of creativity and new ideas. They’ll try just about anything—the only thing that can stop them is themselves.
