These days, it seems like everyone’s doing a lot of talking, but no one really has much to say, and far too many have certainly forgotten how to be quiet and listen.

How many of your friends and family members think their own problems are more important than anyone else’s? How many of them will take every opportunity to turn every conversation into a monologue about themselves and their own issues, no matter what the topic is?


Though checking someone's horoscope can provide insight into why they act this way, astrology can also be a great indicator of the zodiac signs who are good listeners. On the other hand, maybe humans have always been this self-centered

Of course, there are plenty of people who have mastered the art of real listening — you just have to look for them. (Hint: They’re the quiet ones.)

When you’ve got something burning inside your heart, these are the friends you turn to, because sometimes just a chance to get everything out in the open goes a long way toward solving the problem.

Sometimes it’s best to keep your feelings to yourself, at least for a little while. It would be inappropriate to vent every single thought that crosses your mind. Give yourself a chance to examine your emotions and determine if there really is a problem, or if you’re just having a weird day. No sense creating a big deal out of something that you’ll get over in a few hours. 


But if the issue just keeps eating at you, you probably should find someone to listen to your side of things. When you’re ready to talk, these are the zodiac signs who are good listeners and will lend you an ear.

1. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini is known for their masterful speaking techniques and their ability to connect with just about anyone, but they also know that listening is a big part of this connection. Just because they’re good at making speeches doesn’t mean that they never give anyone else a turn. Gemini shines in a group, but they’re amazing at one-on-one interactions.


Seek Gemini’s help when you really need to understand a situation from an objective point of view. If you just want a shoulder to cry on, look elsewhere. Gemini works from the rational mental plane, and isn’t always so great at providing emotional comfort.

2. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)



When you need someone to give you a little extra love and attention, Cancer is happy to step up. They want nothing more than to help their loved ones feel safe and taken care of.

Cancer is an expert at providing emotional shelter when you’re feeling raw on the inside, and they’ll probably have some delicious comfort food on hand, too. Just make sure you don’t skimp on the gratitude. Let them know how much you appreciate their friendship. And when it’s Cancer’s turn to ask for your help, drop what you’re doing and reciprocate.

No one likes to think that their friends only come around when they need something. If Cancer feels used, they just might not let you back in next time.

3. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Analytical, detail-oriented Virgo makes a great problem-solving coach. Of all the zodiac signs, they’re the best ones to talk to when you’re ready to quit crying and do something to fix things. Virgo will help you get to the root of the issue, identify your obstacles, and make a plan.

Just don’t expect a lot of sympathy or fluffy pep-talks. Virgo’s going to put you to work. Like Gemini, Virgo is not emotionally inclined. They don’t want to waste time building you up or helping you to feel sorry for yourself. If things are that bad, dwelling on the issue and sobbing into your coffee all day isn’t going to do any good. Correct it.

4. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libra’s powers of negotiation make them an excellent mediator. When you have a problem with someone else, and you’re both willing to get help from a third party, Libra is the best counselor you could have. They have an innate sense of balance and fairness, and will work with everyone involved to find the best possible compromise.


Remember, though, that Libra is truly dedicated to justice. They’re not going to do you any special favors just because you might be friends. Libra’s talent is to listen to every side of the story without judging.

They expect you to listen to your opponent, too — solving problems is a lot easier when everyone is open to new perspectives. Reaching peaceful solutions usually means that everyone gets something they want, but no one gets everything.

5. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)



There’s no greater treasure for a Scorpio than someone else’s secrets. One reason Scorpios make great listeners is because they’re fascinated by others’ vulnerabilities and weaknesses, and they love drama and stories — they don’t want to miss any of the juicy details. The more extreme your problems are, the more you’ll have Scorpio’s undivided attention.

Don’t assume that’s a negative trait, though, or that they’re only listening for entertainment. It’s true that baring your soul to a Scorpio can be risky. But when that Scorpio is a trusted friend, you couldn’t ask for better company when you need to work out some inner turmoil.

They know the value of a secret and that means that they can keep things to themselves. You can also count on Scorpio to come up with some highly innovative and unorthodox ways of solving problems.

6. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Empathic, psychic Pisces knows there’s something wrong before you even think about telling them. They can pick up on the painful emotions rolling off your aura, and they actually feel the pain as deeply as you do.

They feel your joy, too, and will do anything to help you reclaim your happiness. You can imagine that this quality makes Pisces an excellent therapist; many of them use their capacity for personal connection to help others understand their own feelings and overcome emotional challenges.


Professional or not, Pisces may not be able to solve the problem, but if you really just want someone to listen and understand where you’re coming from, tell Pisces all about it. You won’t need to use too many words, because they really do already know. Pisces gets it.
