Man Ignoring Woman's Feelings

Taurus is the most grounded and practical sign of the zodiac; two qualities that make them very reliable. But this earth sign is also stubborn to a fault, and will insist on doing things their way, no matter how uncomfortable it might make those around them.

"They have a stubborn streak and tend to prioritize their own needs over the needs of others," says Rachel Clare, a professional astrologist at Mystic Sense. These selfish tendencies can often make them seem insensitive.

While they do care about others and have a strong sense of intuition that helps them read other people's emotions, they can have a hard time verbalizing this. "They may not always know how to express their emotions or provide comfort in the way that others expect," says Clare.

Also, these bulls are blunt and don't mind telling it like it is.

Sagittarius can't let anything get in the way of their next adventure. Rebecca Schmidt, astrologer at Trust the Effing Process, says while they may not mean to be insensitive, they do cast others aside if they're not helping them move forward.

They're focused on the bigger picture and always looking to expand their knowledge and wisdom. These fire signs are in the pursuit of freedom, "so they may make some choices that put their needs ahead of others," Schmidt says.

Since growth and learning are their top priorities, Sag isn't the type to slow down to be sensitive to someone else's feelings.

Known for being impulsive, impatient, and quick-tempered, Aries isn't going to sit around and have a little lovey-dovey chat. They say things without thinking and won't give you a second glance if they've hurt your feelings.

"They aren't a super nurturing sign and want to make things happen, yesterday, " says Schmidt.

These rams are the first of the zodiac, so they have a confidence and assertiveness that might take some time to get accustomed to. "To many of the more sensitive signs, they may come across as hard-headed and cold," Clare says.

They're insensitive because they don't always take the time to think about how their words and actions affect those around them. It would help if they could bite their tongue every now and then.


Overconfident Business Man

Leo is typically known for their charm and confidence. They can make friends with ease and people tend to naturally gravitate towards them. However, they also have a reputation for being insensitive.

Clare mentions that they are a fixed sign, so they're all about stability and sticking to their guns. "While this can be a great quality to have, it can also make Leos a bit stubborn and resistant to change, which can mean they are often perceived as somewhat indifferent and unfeeling towards the needs and desires of others," she says.

These firecrackers are also ruled by the sun, so their ego is at the forefront of any situation. They tend to be a bit self-centered , which causes them to prioritize their own feelings over anyone else's.

Gemini comes across as insensitive because they don't feel things as deeply as other people. "They are in their heads, always trying to keep busy, and they're constantly buzzing with nervous energy," says Schmidt.

With Mercury as their ruling planet, they are great communicators, but they tend to focus on logic and reason rather than empathy. As a sign that's represented by twins and duality, Clare says they're often accused of possessing "multiple personalities" and having contradicting emotions. So, if you don't know them well enough, it can be difficult to recognize where they're coming from, and misunderstandings and hurt feelings are common.

Gemini can be pretty self-involved, so don't be too surprised if they make you feel like a secondary character in their story.

Capricorns can't climb the ladder of success if they're distracted by things like feelings. Because they are ruled by Saturn, the planet associated with structure and responsibility, they're a bit too serious and goal oriented. They are the most insensitive zodiac sign because they'll do anything to accomplish their tasks at hand and don't care who they hurt along the way.

"Additionally, Capricorns are part of the Earth elemental grouping, which means while they are stable and practical people, they may not always be the most emotionally expressive," Clare says. She describes them as cold and unfeeling, and they can't be stopped once they have their minds made up.

Maybe they'll let you shed a tear or two in their presence, but only if they've finished their current project.
