Depending on how you look at it, taming can either be a good or bad thing. For example, some people do not, ever, want to be tamed by anyone, while others are just dying for the day that someone comes along and tames the sh*t out of them.
But no matter your feelings on taming, sometimes you really have no choice in regards to whether or not you’re tamable, even if your horoscope indicates otherwise, because some zodiac signs just simply can’t be tamed. Like, at all.
Here are the six zodiac signs who can’t be tamed.
1. AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
Taming an Aquarius?! Haha! Don’t make me laugh! Aquarius is the zodiac sign that if you dare to cage them, they won’t just violently rebel, but dramatically fake their death in the hopes of being freed.
Aquarius doesn’t want their wings clipped and whoever dares to even try to clip them will forever be seen as a murderer in Aquarius’ eyes.
2. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22)
Libra’s charm and need to be social can sometimes make them appear as though they want to be caught and tamed, but the reality couldn’t be further from the truth.
Notoriously indecisive and superficial, Libra sees taming as just another conventional trap which they have zero desire to ever know. You’d have better luck trying to tame a lion.
3. SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
When it comes to being tamed, Scorpio has more than a couple qualities that make them completely untamable. For starters, they’re too passionate for anything that they find limiting and to tame them would definitely be limiting.
They’re also too into doing they’re own thing that even if someone wanted to tame them, they’d never be able to get even remotely close to Scorpio to do it. So, if you’re thinking of taming a Scorpio, you can give that dream up now. It’s not going to happen.
4. ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
As one of the most stubborn signs in the zodiac, Aries isn’t tamable simply out of spite.
Because Aries always needs to be right and is supremely competitive, they can’t be tamed because they see being tamed as losing some sort of competition to the person who tamed them. Aries would rather stab themselves in the eye than lose to anyone.
5. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
Trying to tame Sagittarius is on par with trying to tame Bigfoot, meaning you can’t tame what you can’t catch.
If only Sagittarius could sit still for five minutes you could try to throw a net on them, but five minutes is a long time for someone whose lust to wander runs deeper than most people’s lust for sex. Sagittarius isn’t just untamable, but uncatchable, too.
6. GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
On one hand, Gemini sort of likes the idea of being tamed… for a whole 30 seconds, then they’re over it. Gemini just gets too bored too easily to be a tamable type of person.
But the problem with Gemini is that although they get bored quicker than most, they absorb and learn from everything they witness. What this means is that if you try to tame Gemini, not only will you not tame them, but their sneaky deceptiveness will invite itself into the picture and you’ll realize you were just tamed by Gemini.
