There are some people who are so emotional that just hanging out with them feels like a roller coaster ride. The entire time you’re together, they’ll regale you with their inner musings, talk to you about a moral dilemma, and maybe even cry because the sunset is “too beautiful” or a dog is “too cute.” It’s safe to say that these people feel everything: the good, the bad, and the seemingly insignificant. Interestingly, their highly emotional personalities can be traced to their horoscope sign. Here, astrologers tell us the most emotional members of the zodiac, from the most sensitive to the hyperhysterical.

This hardworking and direct earth sign is not overtly emotional, but has an active inner world. “Capricorns tend to think too much about the issues they might worry about,” says Tara Bennett, professional astrologer and spiritual coach at MediumChat. “Your cold exterior masks your emotional vulnerability.” A Capricorn’s dearest family and most trusted friends are often the only ones who see their sensitive side, explains Bennett. However, even these close associates may have to pester a Capricorn over and over again to learn their true feelings about an issue.
A well-known party animal, Sagittarius is impulsive, energetic and intelligent – and these traits can sometimes lead to passionate outbursts. “This sign is inconsistent in dealing with its emotions and instability is the name of the game for Sagittarius,” says Maria Hayes, professional astrologer at Trusted Astrology. “In the blink of an eye, they can go from euphoric to angry.” All of this is especially true when they are trying to accomplish one of their many goals and fail. So “they’ll be running in circles with their emotions all over the place,” says Hayes.

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and has a “me first” ethos to match. “Highly emotional, passionate and carefree, this zodiac sign will leap into the flames just to satiate their cravings,” says Hayes. “They are extremely unpredictable, do what they want and live in the moment.” When their impulsiveness is impaired, those born under this sign can easily become nervous and anxious. Fortunately, Aries can also use their emotionality for good. “They can channel 100 percent of their energies into things they’re passionate about, so you can expect their tenacity to bring success,” says Hayes. “Aries are masters at using their emotions to fuel their quest for greatness, whatever that means.”
Unsurprisingly, the most emotional signs on our list are the three water signs. “The water signs – Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces – are considered the most emotional because they are associated with deep feelings and intuition,” says Sofia Celestino, professional astrologer for Destiny Awakens. “All three signs are in touch with their emotions and are likely to express them freely and openly.” That said, they express their emotions differently.
Scorpio, for example, is known to be passionate and intense. “They can be very quick to get angry, but they are also loyal and protective of those they care about,” says Celestino. “Scorpians tend to be more reserved with their emotions, but when they do open up, it’s usually because they trust the person they’re trusting.” When feeling negative emotions, they tend to become self-destructive and sabotage important relationships.

If there’s one thing Pisces is good at, it’s feeling each and every emotion. In fact, this sign is so good at connecting with their own emotions and empathizing with others that they are sometimes considered psychic. “[They are] empathetic to the point that they often confuse their own emotions with those of those around them,” says Bennett.
What’s more, Pisces is constantly reflecting on their feelings. “These fish continually explore their emotions and are quick to forgive and forget, even if it is harmful to themselves,” adds Bennett. “A Pisces in an emotionally charged event is like a sponge soaking up everyone else’s pain.” You can expect them to bring the plumbing system to any funeral or graduation – even if they are not tied to the person being honored.
There are many things in the Cancer chart that make him the most emotional sign of the zodiac. First, it’s the cardinal sign of water, which means it relates to the world through sensation, explains Hayes. Cancer is also ruled by the Moon, which signifies the inner self and deep feelings. “As such, logic and reason are secondary to your feelings and intuitions,” says Hayes. While some might see this as a weakness, Hayes notes that it’s actually Cancer’s strongest point. “They are able to truly connect with themselves, which allows them to relate well to others,” she notes.
It can take several years for Cancer to control their emotions. Unrefined, “their choices are meaningless, often allowing their impulses and desires to take over,” says Hayes. “When they get hurt, they’re definitely crybabies, though.” In contrast, a highly refined Cancer is a master of their emotions. “They can bluff as cold as stone or even persuade others to join their cause.”
