The Brutal Truth About Texting With Each Zodiac Sign

The way you text based on your Zodiac sign.

The stars know what you're trying to say.

Texting doesn't just communicate a quick thought — the way you text can say a lot about your personality. Do you use punctuation, and if so, do you do it in a way that's interpreted as passive-aggressive? You might not think that using a period is a big deal but it can send the wrong message.

Do you always answer back, or do you just let the conversation die without a final response from you? You might like to use a ton of emojis and very little words, or are pictures the things you're most likely to text?

These days, we communicate more and more via text than we do with phone calls, emails, and snail mail. We want our messages to be immediate. Texting is great for people who may feel shy or who hate confrontation. You aren't standing next to someone face to face, so texting may make people feel safe to express whatever it is they need to express.

Are you a super-fast texter or do you labor over each and every stroke? How comfortable you are with the physical act of texting will translate into how comfortable you are with it. 

Because our texting style says a lot about us, it’s no surprise that there’s a connection between how we text and our zodiac sign.

There are certain personality traits that correspond to our zodiac signs. Everyone knows that Scorpios are sexy and Pisces are dreamy. Does that mean that the characteristics applied to each sign is true for every single person born under that sign? No, there are variances, but generally, the traits that are specific to the certain signs does have a tendency to be correct.

Astrology suggests that the sign we are born under has much to do with our personalities, and it's interesting to see how that matches us with the way we text. Find out what your texting style says about you, according to your zodiac sign.

Aries have a reputation for being slow texter-backers — that is, if they even text you back at all. Well, they're busy doing fun things and achieving their goals. If they do text you back, it might be in all caps and somewhat incoherent because they're excited to share with you what THEY'RE THINKING. And even though they type pretty fast, it may not be fast enough for Aries. Oh, and they use a lot of exclamation marks!!!!!

Gemini will send 15 texts when they could have gotten everything in only one text. But Gemini's sweet spot for texting is group texting. Why just reach one person when you can reach ten?
