Sorry ... not sorry?

We all know that depending on what your zodiac sign is, you are more likely to act and think a certain way, and even have personal preferences that another sign might hate. You might be considered the chilled-out party girl or the studious, smarty pants, and while this might just be a part of your personality, it can also be affected by your zodiac sign.

Take how you react in certain situations, for example. When you hear great news, you might pop a bottle of champagne like an Aries or jump up and down like an excited kid like a Pisces would.


During an argument, you might come out swingin’ like Scorpio or just run away from your problems like a Libra. But however you deal with situations, one thing is always for sure: your sign can play a big part in how you react.

So, what happens after that argument ends? Do you kiss and make up like nothing happened or do you hold a grudge until the other person apologizes first?

I’m not saying some signs are more predictable than others when it comes to knowing how they will apologize, but... some signs are definitely predictable.


What makes an apology from each sign even better though is how they make it up to you. And by that I don’t mean they send an impersonal “sorry :(” text and hope that’s enough. In fact, some signs are downright touching when it comes to setting things right.

To find out how you say sorry and what makes your sign’s apology so personal, keep reading. And for some of you, use this as a guide to get better at apologizing... Just sayin’.

1ARIES (Mar 21 - Apr 19)

aries How The Zodiac Signs Apologize Astrology

Aries may seem a little intimidating at first to those who don’t know her, but many first impressions about her are wrong.

People assume that because she is such a confident, assertive person, she doesn’t care if she hurts someone, but that’s simply not true.

People easily forget that Aries is incredibly honest, which means she isn’t afraid to either own up and apologize for her actions or stand up for herself (depending on the situation).

Aries will acknowledge when she’s wrong, but she will never apologize for something she didn’t do.

2TAURUS (Apr 20 - May 20)

taurus How The Zodiac Signs Apologize Astrology

Taurus is incredibly stubborn and it can be almost impossible at times to get her to apologize.

It isn’t so much that she likes a fight (though that is something she enjoys), but rather that she truly believes that she has a point.

You won’t often see a Taurus backing down from an argument, but she DOES know when she’s gone too far.

When she stands up for what’s right, she’ll always be stubborn. When she hurts someone she loves, she’ll always be quick to apologize.

3GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

gemini How The Zodiac Signs Apologize Astrology

Gemini is always learning, which means she can often be careless with others at first.

This is especially true if you’ve only known her for a short time because she’s never really sure where your limits are until she pushes them.

That said, she may act like nothing’s wrong until you straight up ask her to say sorry.

The best thing about Gemini is that even if she accidentally touches a nerve, she never does it again.

She might not always be quick to right her wrongs, but she does know that intentionally hurting someone without apologizing is a low blow.

4CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

cancer How The Zodiac Signs Apologize Astrology

Cancer is a very intuitive and emotional sign, which means that she often knows when she’s messed up and already has an apology prepared before you know what happened.

Whenever a Cancer apologizes, though, it’s always genuine and from the heart.

Cancer can sometimes tread carefully around people so she doesn’t upset them, especially if she knows they’re hot-headed or sensitive.

It can get kind of annoying to hear “I’m sorry” a lot, but she only does it to make sure you know how much she cares about you.

5LEO (July 23 - Aug 22)

leo How The Zodiac Signs Apologize Astrology

Being the drama queen she is, Leo isn’t always the first to apologize after a fight. When she thinks she’s right, she REALLY means she thinks you’re wrong.

Being such a self-confident, dominant personality, it’s easy to see why she would be on her own side over anyone else’s.

Her somewhat-arrogant nature can get her into trouble, but sometimes you have to give her the benefit of the doubt and say, “that’s Leo for you!”

She doesn’t aim to hurt anyone, but instead puts her foot in her mouth A LOT.

She will apologize, though, if you be honest and tell her you’re upset.

6VIRGO (Aug 23 - Sep 22)

virgo How The Zodiac Signs Apologize Astrology

Even though she’s one of the most intelligent signs, Virgo still has her moments where she totally blanks on how to be smart in a difficult situation.

Virgo will NEVER hurt someone intentionally. Instead, she can get too into her own little world that she unknowingly says or does the wrong thing.

When Virgo knows she’s messed up, she will take action immediately to right her wrongs.

This can mean anything from a long, heartfelt speech explaining how sorry she is to bringing you your favorite foods for the next week.

An apology from a Virgo always feels like a hug for your heart.

7LIBRA (Sept 23 - Oct 22)

libra How The Zodiac Signs Apologize Astrology

Libra will go out of her way to make sure there is no turmoil between her and her friends.

So much so that she would rather not say or do anything that could cause a fight instead of sticking up for herself.

When it comes to apologies, Libra often abandons her principles to keep the other person happy.

While is move is done completely out of respect for her friendship, it can make her apologies seem a little fake or forced.

A discussion about feelings will elicit a more genuine apology from a Libra instead of arguing with her.

8SCORPIO (Oct 23 - Nov 21)

scorpio How The Zodiac Signs Apologize Astrology

Scorpio thrives in arguments that get heated and passionate very quickly. She hates secrets, so during an argument – and even during an apology – she would rather you be honest with her than be nice to smooth things over.

Even if that means the two of you stay mad at each other a little longer, it’s better than lying to her face.

Apologies from a Scorpio can seem kind of underhanded at first, but it’s only because she’s trying to stay honest (however brutal that may be).

Being the ride or die chick that she is though, she’ll never let a petty argument get in between her and her friends, no matter what.

9SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 - Dec 19)

sagittarius How The Zodiac Signs Apologize Astrology

Sagittarius takes pride not only in having so many friends, but having great relationships with all of them.

That said, she’ll never be shallow and apologize to you just to keep you in her squad. She can recognize when she’s said the wrong thing and when to apologize.

Sagittarius sometimes says whatever she can just to keep you happy, but know that she wouldn’t put in this much effort for just anyone.

Remember that she’s an easy-going girl who lives for the good times, so when things start going down a dark path, she wants to solve it as quickly as possible.

If you want a real apology from her, you have to be willing to try something different.

10CAPRICORN (Dec 20 - Jan 19)

capricorn How The Zodiac Signs Apologize Astrology

Capricorn is a master of self-control, which means she doesn’t often fly off the handle.

If she does get angry, it comes from a very deep place, one where she considers all possibilities before acting on her emotions.

What some people don’t know about Capricorn is that she can sometimes overreact during arguments.

She assumes that things will go much worse than they actually do, which only hurts the situation and makes it harder to get her to apologize.

When she does finally apologize, though, it’s straight to the point; she wants to make sure it never happens again.

11AQUARIUS (Jan 20 - Feb 18)

aquarius How The Zodiac Signs Apologize Astrology

Arguments and apologies alike always come from a different place with an Aquarius. She will argue until she can’t anymore if she truly believes there is something that needs to be said.

When situations get difficult with this sign, it’s mainly because she wants to enlighten herself on something she knows nothing about; not because she wants to start a fight.

When she apologizes, it always comes from the heart. It might seem like she’s void of emotion, but in reality, she cares deeply about the people in her life.

She wants her friends and family know that even when things get tense, she appreciates having people around to work things out with her.

12PISCES (Feb 19 - Mar 20)

pisces How The Zodiac Signs Apologize Astrology

Pisces is very intuitive, meaning she’s in touch with both her emotions and yours.

She hates getting into arguments with her friends, but she knows that sometimes, there are situations where she needs to stand up for what’s right and rustle some feathers.

When a Pisces gets into an argument, it’s always in the name of justice. She will readily apologize if she hurts your feelings, but she also knows that some situations don’t require an apology, but a solution.

She’s a much more intelligent sign than people give her credit for.
