The Most Erratic Zodiac Sign, According to Astrologers

You'll never know their next move.

Certain folks move a mile a minute—and not always in a straight line. Think the Road Runner constantly running away from Wile E. Coyote. He never stops, and these people don't either, but it's not just their movements that are all over the place. They're always changing their minds, ignoring commitments left and right, and have a bit of flighty energy about them. While everyone has their moments, these tendencies could also be astrology-related. Keep reading to discover the most erratic zodiac sign from a bit unsettled to completely chaotic.

Person with a lot of Ideas

With a million thoughts in their head at once, it's hard for Geminis to slow down. They're always looking for what's next, so tying them down for commitments is a real struggle. Tara Bennet, astrologer and spiritual coach at Medium Chat, mentions that stability is almost permanently out of their reach, thanks to their dual nature and impulsive personality.

People don't always like their quick moving tendencies, so "their erratic behavior, edging to irresponsible, can impact their relationships," say Bennet.

These air signs are go go go all the time, and while they constantly need stimulation, other folks might take their inconsistencies personally.

Spontaneous Sagittarius doesn't like being told what to do and would rather forge their own path. "They reject the feeling of being confined, so they constantly search for new experiences that expand their ability to live life to the fullest," says Ryan Marquardt, astrologer and founder of Ryan's Astrology.

Never one to give up the reins, these fire signs do as they please and aren't going to apologize for chasing the things they want. They're fully unpredictable, but it's part of what makes them so fun. "They have a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants philosophy, which can come off as erratic for others to experience," Marqurdt says.

When it comes to making decisions, don't ask a Libra. Bennet says they are constantly weighing up pros and cons and bounce from one plan to the next.You'll go around in circles with them until you both get frustrated. They'll likely end up going with the flow and doing whatever makes others happy, but it's best to not put them in charge of choosing things.

Not only can they not decide, they go back and forth if they've made a choice. It comes down to the fact that they are people pleasers first and foremost. "They struggle to put their own wants and needs first, which makes them heavily influenced by other people, and that creates an identity that's too wrapped up with the outside world," Marquardt says.

Their indecisiveness is what makes them erratic. Bennet suggests that they should learn to accept a little unfairness from time to time, so their thoughts would be more settled and less all over the place.

Scorpios can flip the switch like nobody else. They are ruled by Mars, the planet of conflict, so their emotions can be erratic.

As one of the water signs, they feel things so intensely. And when these deep feelings take over, it can be hard for them to control their actions. "Like a tidal wave, they hit, destroying everything in their path, but within moments it's all sunshine and roses," Bennet says.

One minute they could be your best friend and the next they'll be plotting your downfall. Just don't get on their bad side and you might be able to get out unscathed.

These deep-in-their-feels people are ruled by the moon, which only perpetuates their erratic behavior. Marquardt explains that the moon moves through the zodiac quicker than any other planet in astrology: It is only in each sign for 2.5 days, before moving to the next, he tells Best Life.

These people are known for their mood swings and sometimes certain emotions show up out of the blue. "It can be erratic to witness them go from optimistic to grumpy seemingly overnight," Marquardt says. While they enjoy caring for others, they need to know that they're cared for in return to help tame their overwhelming emotions.

Known for being incredibly impulsive and passionate, Aries is not one to let life pass them by. They do things their own way and don't like to take others' thoughts into consideration.These dynamic folks are also, without a doubt, the most erratic zodiac sign.

Their energy is fiery and they feel like they always have to be jumping to the next thing. You'll never be bored with an Aries, but it can be hard to keep up with them. "They're especially erratic because they can not only become fired up without warning, but they'll burn out and feel exhausted just as quickly," Marquardt says.
