How the signs are in conversation.

The stars know how you talk.

Knowing how to have a conversation is one of the most important skills we can have. Think about it: if you can't carry on a conversation, how can you date or negotiate?

Whenever something important needs to be decided, you have a conversation about it. When you want to get to know someone, you talk and see what things you have in common or if you have the same values. You have to know how to have a conversation in order to get by in the world.

There are many different ways to have a conversation. You can talk to someone in person, via Skype, on the phone, or even by text. Of course, when you have a conversation in real time with sound, you can hear things like tone and inflection that also give meaning to a conversation.

When you're sitting with someone talking, ideally, you're having eye contact and are present in the conversation, and understanding is passing between the two of you.

There are four crucial parts of a conversation: What we say, how we say it, when we say it, and whether we're talking with someone or at someone. Conversation is where we manage our relationships, solve problems, come up with solutions, and process information.

It can be very frustrating if you're trying to have a conversation and you can't engage the person you're speaking to. Or, on the flip side, when you completely click with the person you're talking to and get energized by speaking to them.

Good conversation can be as exciting as foreplay in some cases. For some people, they need to warm up in a conversation, sometimes out of reserve or shyness until they feel comfortable enough to really express themselves.

We express our emotions like anger, happiness, surprise, or sadness. Everything we feel as humans can be expressed through conversation. And how you converse may have a lot to do with the zodiac sign you were born under, as the stars have a lot of influence over our personalities. Here's what each zodiac sign is like in conversation.
