You can’t please everyone all the time. We all know this, so if we happen to be people-pleasers, we are more than likely going to run into our share of folks who simply cannot be pleased.
What’s interesting is just how intensely we can disappoint; I mean, it’s almost laughable. You know you’ve done something wrong, but holy hell, you didn’t know you’d receive such a berating for it? That’s the thing — each zodiac sign in astrology reacts differently to being disappointed.
Some signs have great expectations, while others demand far less. But when it’s personal, when we are the one to deliver the disappointment, it’s quite shocking to see how others react to us, especially when it’s seriously over the top.
When you disappoint someone, it’s up to them to reflect back to you how they feel about it. Some are easy-going and some are seriously disappointed by you. And they have no qualms about showing you.
How can you prove to each sign that you are by far the most disappointing person they could possibly know? (Take notes, you’ll want this info for future use!)
ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
If undoing the mental state of your Aries buddy is on your to-do list, then make sure you don’t do what they told you to do. Especially if it household-oriented.
Nothing burns an Aries more than you shirking your home duties. Leave the cap off the toothpaste? Yeah, you just lost an Aries friend.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
If you want to ruin a Taurus’ day, set them up with the expectation of food, and don’t show up with the goods. Tell your Taurus buddy that you’re picking up Pho, that you’re at the best place right now, and then show up empty-handed, smacking your lips.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
You don’t need to do much to disappoint a Gemini, in fact, if you want to let one down the right way, just ask them to have lunch with you. Their first inclination will be to judge you for wanting to eat, which will gradually move into how much they hate you for being pathetic enough to ask them out.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
Say one thing wrong. That’s all. Cancer has no patience and absolutely no sense of forgiveness; it’s their way or the highway.
If you make a mistake, you are out. One teensy misstep, and you will have no chance to right your wrong. To Cancer, you are hereby stamped “wrong” and put out to pasture. You are now in the disappointment zone.
LEO (July 23 – August 22)
Leo finds you disappointing because you have the nerve to think you’re in their league. Leo cannot stand to think that others actually think of themselves as contenders, and you are highly disappointing to them when you continue to try being as good as they are.
In Leo’s mind, you can’t be as good, so don’t go ruining everyone’s day trying.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
Virgo isn’t just disappointed by you, they are disgusted. And they have no filters when it comes to telling you how revolting you are for having the nerve to breathe the same air as they do.
Virgo comes with beliefs; if you don’t believe what they believe, they throw you away. You don’t even get to rank as disappointing; Virgo deems you obsolete.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
Libra is disappointed ’round the clock, though in their case, it’s never about people — it’s about life itself. Being that Libra can’t blame their misery on “life itself,” they target people, instead, blaming the ruination of their own lives on whomever happens to be nearby.
Libra’s biggest disappointment? Their own selves.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
Scorpios are so in love with their ways that they often can’t see how they themselves have messed something up. When this happens, they find someone close by to project their own disappointment on to.
You may serve a purpose by being an innocent bystander, but to Scorpio, you are the right person to take the brunt of all their anger.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
What disappoints Sagittarius the most are liars, and if you lie to one of these truth-tellers, they will unleash hell on you, almost to the point where it becomes excessive and unfair.
Your Sagittarius friend is dead set on honesty; bring them a falsity, and you might as well be bringing them your head on a platter.

CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)
Want to upset a Capricorn? Show up late. It’s their ultimate pet peeve and they take it personally and will more than likely charge you for your time, even if you are their mom.
Capricorn is all business, even in love. Don’t rock this boat; this sign takes offense to your lack of integrity.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
How to disappoint an Aquarius? Be yourself. They don’t want that. They want you to act according to their fantasy of you.
They never wanted your honesty, or your life story; they wanted you to fulfill certain fantasies, and should you entertain thoughts of simply hanging out and being yourself, consider yourself a true disappointment.
PISCES (February 19 – March 10)
You disappoint Pisces with every moment that you are not paying attention to them. If you marry a Pisces, don’t bother having friends — that will cause disappointment. Don’t speak to your mother — that will disappoint your Pisces partner.
In fact, unless you are looking at your Pisces person with adoration and a nonstop approving gaze, you’re worthless, a total disappoint to them.
