Some people take a long time to make decisions. Others make them too quickly. And some make decisions that often turn out to be bad. Decision-making skills and speeds vary from person to person. But if you are the kind that is prone to making bad decisions and poor choices in life, life is not going to be smooth for you. It is easy to find out, thanks to astrology. Some zodiac signs seem to have a knack for making bad decisions. Blame it on the planets!

 People born under the Fire signs, for instance, tend to be impulsive and rash. It goes without saying that such personality traits are hardly conducive to making good decisions. Air signs are not much better off, either.  

.When it comes to decision-making, speed is not always a good thing. It depends on the kind of decision you need to make. You can quickly decide if you want to make dinner at home or eat out without much harm being done. But a decision like getting married or quitting a job needs to be mulled over.

 So what are the factors involved in wrong decisions?

· You are not bothered about the consequences.

· While performing repetitive tasks, you tend to respond automatically without paying much attention.

· Your decisions are colored by past experiences.

· Excessive multitasking puts pressure on the brain and muddles your mind.

Astrology says that natives born under 4 zodiac signs tend to make the worst decisions. Check them out.


Gemini is an Air sign, meaning it is ruled by the Air element. Its symbol is the twins. These natives are notoriously indecisive. They can be impulsive and unpredictable, so these traits influence the decisions they make. Geminis display inconsistent behavior as they are moody and whimsical.

 They may make poor life choices by switching jobs or breaking off relationships at the drop of a hat. They have a restless nature and find it hard to stay still in one place. Their attention spans are short, and they get bored very quickly. When it comes to relationships, they flit from one person to another like butterflies, as commitment scares them.

 Geminis have a hard time going beyond appearances. They jump to conclusions and are eager for new experiences. They are also very childlike and trust too easily. All this leads to poor decision-making skills. Geminis suffer from nerves, and due to their nervous tension, they end up making bad decisions s well when they are under pressure.


Sagittarians believe in following their instincts. They don’t care much for rules. They have an adventurous nature and are game for trying new things. They are the gamblers of the zodiac, and taking risks is like breathing for them. They also have big dreams and don’t mind going out on a limb to achieve them. Though their ruling planet, Jupiter, does give them support, they can still make some lousy decisions.

 They have an impulsive nature and can be quite reckless at times. Being open-minded, they, too, trust people quickly, only to find later that their trust was misplaced. Their boundless optimism can lead them astray at times. But this is one sign that can bounce back quickly, despite their bad decisions and poor choices.


Pisces prefers to err on the side of caution. They will put off making decisions rather than making a wrong decision. Still, their decisions may be wide off the mark. In order not to appear selfish, they will make decisions that are not in their self-interest. Sometimes, even delayed decisions can have undesirable consequences.

 They flounder when it comes to financial decisions. Their mood swings also impact their decision-making skills adversely. Their emotional nature often clouds their judgment.

If there is something that they don’t want to deal with, they will act impulsively to get it out of the way instead of confronting the issue head-on.


If there is anything that Aries natives detest, it is waiting. This Fire sign is known for its impulsive nature. They simply don’t have the patience to think things through and just want to get it over and done with. They are fond of taking risks, too, and jump headlong into things.

 Aries seeks thrills. They are restless and brim with energy. Inaction is not an option for them, and they don’t care much about the consequences of their actions. Mars is their planetary ruler. It is a hot, fiery, and aggressive planet. Aries is the infant of the zodiac, and like children, they will bring the house down when they want something, never mind if it is not suitable for them. They pursue their desires recklessly and are ruled by their instincts too much to recognize what is good or bad for them.     

 When looking for zodiac sign compatibility, these are the 4 signs that are often red-flagged for making bad decisions. If your partner is from one of these signs, you can be pretty sure that some of their choices and decisions may raise your eyebrows, at the very least!
