How To Know If You're Banished To The Friend Zone, According To Each Zodiac Sign

Each zodiac sign has a different way of showing you they're not interested in a romantic relationship. (Sorry!)

Zodiac Sign In The Friend Zone Rejection WeHeartIt

Everyone has friend-zoned at least one person in their lifetime. Whether you friend zoned someone the hard way or the easy way, or someone has friend-zoned you, there's no denying its a game some people like to play.

If you're not about the friend-zone game, and want to catch the subtle signs of when it starts and how it plays itself out, you can through astrology and the zodiac signs.



Friend-zoning someone comes in all shapes and sizes and each zodiac sign has a way of going about putting someone in the friend-zone when they are interested in being friends, but nothing more.

There’s just so many ways to let someone know you don’t want to start a relationship with them, and it all really depends on your style of letting people down easy.



A common misconception about the friend-zone is that it’s a rejection. Rather than having someone just up and permanently cut you out of their life, they would rather keep you around as a friend because they like you, and it's not to reject you all together.

Why is that often seen as a bad thing? The friend-zone doesn’t have to be such a terrible thing if you think about it as saying you are likeable, but more as a friend.

As much as it isn’t fun to be in the friend-zone when you wish you were more than a friend, putting someone there is a much better feeling. It’s a useful, little imaginary room where romantic notions about relationships go to die before they’ve turned into more.


Yes, sometimes feelings get hurt, but it makes life so much easier, especially with fun little strategies to put someone there.

Friend-zoning someone isn’t easy for anyone, to be honest. It’s uncomfortable for both parties, and especially uncomfortable if a guy doesn’t know he’s being friend-zoned.

But there’s a lot of small signals for people to be aware of when they’re in the process of being friend-zoned and they don’t realize it.



Some of the zodiac signs prefer the ignoring tactic, some prefer to be up front and honest, while others like to use a little more out of the box friend-zoning strategies. But no matter how astrology tells you how to friend-zone someone, there's no way around it; at one point or another, you'll friend-zone someone.

All that matters is how your horoscope explains the basics of it. Because one day, you may need this information on how certain zodiac signs act when friend zoning.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

aries Zodiac Sign In The Friend Zone Rejection

An Aries girl is known for being honest, so when it comes to friend-zoning someone, she might not be so subtle.

She’ll be up front, and rather than play a few games with your head, she’ll tell you the real deal: she just wants to be friends.

Don't take it too hard, though, because she's telling you so that things stay fun and light.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

taurus Zodiac Sign In The Friend Zone Rejection

Taurus girls are touchy and usually like to express emotion through touch, so a way they show they’re friend-zoning you is to touch you as little as possible.

Not a single shoulder touch, or fixing your hair, or even a high five. She will stay away from that as a small sign that she just wants to hang out on a friendly basis.

It's a big sign for Taurus, but subtle for a girl in general, so you really need to know her as a person to catch her drift.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

gemini Zodiac Sign In The Friend Zone Rejection

A Gemini girl will let you know you’re being friend-zoned by ignoring your texts for an entire day, and then later sending a text saying, “sorry, I forgot to respond!” just to let you know she doesn’t think about you and doesn’t make you a priority.

Sometimes she’ll even take days to respond and say, “I didn’t even see your text," meaning she doesn’t check to see if you’ve messaged her at all.

Cancer June 21 - July 22)

cancer Zodiac Sign In The Friend Zone Rejection

One way a Cancer girl will hint to you that she’s putting you in the friend-zone is by blowing off opportunities to meet your friends and family.

She doesn’t want to get any closer in your relationship than she already is, and usually, meeting family means getting closer.

She’ll come up with excuses for why she’s unavailable to hang out with them and eventually, the subject will stop coming up.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

leo Zodiac Sign In The Friend Zone Rejection

Leo girls often put a guy in the friend-zone by using words like “bro” and “dude.”

Obviously, if you’re trying to get further in a relationship with a girl, hearing her call you “bro” constantly makes you realize she just thinks of you as if you’re in a fraternity together, not a relationship.

It's the casual language that helps her keep you at arm's length so she knows not to lead you on.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

virgo Zodiac Sign In The Friend Zone Rejection

A Virgo’s subtle way of letting you know you’re being friend-zoned is just letting herself go a little bit. She won’t dress very nicely and won’t do her hair to hang out with you.

I know, girls don’t wear makeup and look cute for guys’ entertainment, but letting a guy know you don’t care about how you look in front of him might make him realize you’re not looking to be in a relationship with him.

Libra (September 23 - October 22)

libra Zodiac Sign In The Friend Zone Rejection

A Libra girl will friend-zone someone by comparing them to a family member. Saying things like, “you’re like a brother to me,” will make a guy turn the other way.

That line is usually the poison in the potential relationship, and if you hear it, you should know that she’s not interested.

She might not even do it intentionally, but when she does do it, it's not meant to hurt your feelings.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

scorpio Zodiac Sign In The Friend Zone Rejection

Scorpio girls friend-zone someone by purposely talking about other people they’re interested in. This lets the person being friend-zoned know that she’s clearly into someone else and they should back off a bit.

She also clearly doesn't care if it hurts your feelings or not because she isn't in the mindset that she needs to let you down easy (since you're just a friend).

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

sagittarius Zodiac Sign In The Friend Zone Rejection

To let you know you’ve been friend-zoned, a Sagittarius girl will pose as your wing-woman. She’ll go out with you and help you spot all your potential suitors, even coming up with cool pick up lines and match-making games.

When Sag friend-zones, she does it in a way that you know you're still a good guy in her book, just not someone she wants to date.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

capricorn Zodiac Sign In The Friend Zone Rejection

Capricorn girls often friend-zone someone by being over the top “extra.” If you bring up a movie in a conversation, she’ll respond within two seconds on why it’s the worst movie ever, why you should hate it, and how she can't believe you even mentioned it.

The same goes for almost anything like food, music, and books. It seems a little childish, but she wants to squash all ideas of being your crush for good.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

aquarius Zodiac Sign In The Friend Zone Rejection

One tactic an Aquarius girl will do to let you know you’re friend-zoned is making sure you’re not a priority. If you ask her to hang out, she’ll be sure to let you know she already has plans with someone else, and she’ll do this every time.

This is her way of letting you know she doesn’t purposely make time for you and puts everyone else ahead of you.

Of course, if she really does want to be your friend, she'll make an effort, but not enough to make you think you have a chance.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

pisces Zodiac Sign In The Friend Zone Rejection

A Pisces girl will friend-zone you by constantly talking about how important your friendship is to her.

A lot of people who are friends won’t date for the sanctity of their friendship, so assuming the person being friend-zoned has that same understanding, they’ll stick with the friendship rather than push a relationship.

If this doesn't work, she will try the "let you down easy" approach, hoping it works.
