When it comes to romantic relationships, jealousy is to be expected, though there’s such a thing as taking it too far.

When we enter a relationship with someone, we’re at our most vulnerable, so we’ll find ourselves feeling jealous and insecure every now and then.

There’s nothing wrong with that.

Where jealousy does become dangerous is when it starts taking over a relationship and pushes us to try to control our partners and their actions.

Some signs are better than others at keeping jealousy in check, and the following zodiac signs are the worst at it.

Taurus

Taurus is one of the most committed signs in the Zodiac, and they pour a lot of time and effort into their relationships.

They don’t get into a relationship lightly, which means that when they do enter a relationship, they do so with long-term commitment in mind, so when presented with a situation that makes them feel jealous, they tend to react poorly, to say the least.

Though they’re not particularly controlling, Taureans do tend to be a little possessive, so when they feel their relationship is threatened, they’ll immediately go into the offensive, turning up the possessiveness several notches so that everyone around them realizes you’re with them.

Whether there’s a reason to feel jealous or not is irrelevant. When they feel jealousy, their stubbornness will kick in and they’ll often refuse to believe you when you tell them there’s really nothing to worry about.

If their jealousy is founded, however, you can kiss your relationship goodbye.

Tauruses spend a lot of time and effort into their relationships, and if they sense you’re not similarly convenient, they’ll cut ties and try again with someone else.

Cancer

Cancers are sensitive souls that tend to blow things out of proportion, particularly when it comes to relationships.

Their though exterior protects a soft and vulnerable heart, which they’re afraid of exposing to just about anyone, so for them to trust you with their emotions is a pretty big deal.

It also means that they’ll feel incredibly vulnerable in new relationships, and this will show itself in the form of jealousy.

They’ll compare themselves to the people you hang out with and will look for hidden meaning in your actions and words, as their insecurities often make it hard for them to believe you’re actually interested in them.

Good communication and time will often help with this problem, as the longer a relationship goes, the more confident Cancer will feel in it and the less jealous they’ll act.

It’s all about helping Cancer feel secure in your relationship.

Leo

We all know that Leos loves being the center of attention, so their partner paying attention to anyone else is the ultimate betrayal.

Is it even a surprise Leo is on this list?

While they present themselves as charming and approachable, Leos are actually incredibly selective about who they choose to date, as they feel like they need to choose someone that’s on their level.

Once they’re dating that person, they’ll scrutinize their every move, making sure their partners are really as good as they appear to be.

What makes Leo’s jealousy so over-the-top is that they won’t only get jealous of their partner but also of the attention their partner gets.

If their partner is receiving plenty of attention from attractive people, Leo will get jealous, but the same will happen if their partner gets a huge promotion, a random compliment, etc.

Whether they intend to do it, Leos tend to turn their relationships into a competition, and if they’re not winning, then jealousy will reign supreme.

Scorpio

Scorpios are already highly suspicious and paranoid individuals, so once they get it into their mind that you’re untrustworthy, it will be almost impossible to regain their trust.

They won’t jump to conclusions based only on a hunch, but the moment they find something that might work as evidence to support their suspicion, then it’s game over.

The only real positive about Scorpio’s approach to jealousy is that they won’t stew on it.

If they feel jealous, they’ll let you know about it, and they’ll immediately confront you with their feelings and beliefs.

This can be pretty terrifying sometimes, but it also gives you the opportunity to set things right, so good luck.

Capricorn

Capricorns don’t open up to people easily, and they find it even harder to invite new people into their lives.

Because they enjoy being on their own so much, you can rest assured that if a Capricorn wants to start a relationship with you it’s because they really mean it.

Of course, this also means that your relationship will be so important to them that they’ll be hypervigilant about anything that could threaten it and will often interpret anything you do in the worst light possible.

Capricorns don’t handle jealousy well, and will often jump to the wrong conclusion based entirely on their feelings and perceptions.

Thankfully, logic does tend to prevail with Capricorn, so once they calm down, you can always approach them to talk to them about their feelings of jealousy and there’s a pretty good chance they’ll understand.
