"I'm a very private person." That's how it starts. One minute you notice that your private person "friend" is a little quieter than just about anyone else you've ever known in your life, and the next minute you realize that they are quiet for a reason: they're hiding something.

For the secretive zodiac signs, this is something they know all too well. And though a horoscope can encourage you to reveal your true feelings, one thing is for sure: astrology can't convince you to do anything you don't want to.

Sometimes, "I'm a private person" means "I have so much crap hidden that if you catch on to what I'm really all about, you'll leave me." Other times, "I'm a private person" means "I watch more naughty videos than you'll ever want to know about, and masturbating will always be more important than you."

There are times when being "the quiet one" isn't about a person being peaceful and Zen-like; it's more about them keeping all their nasty secrets hidden from the world.

The Zodiac gives us certain traits and there are a number of secretive zodiac signs that breed quiet types. The conspiracy of silence is a strong statement; withholding communication can sometimes be the loudest thing a person can say.

Think about all the times you've been in an argument with someone who never gets around to saying what's on their mind or they simply blink out and ghost you. Ghosting is the "quiet person's" way of avoiding confrontation, responsibility and fairness.

Many silent people are not as mysterious as they are secretive and private. Being private is great and should be respected, but there are other quiet types who use their silence as a passive-aggressive weapon of defense

Here are the top 6 astrological signs that give us the quietest people with the most to hide.

1. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

If your goal is to be excluded from everything your Libra partner does, says, feels and expresses, then bingo! You're in luck, because nobody has more to hide than Libra. If only their silence was about a need for privacy alone, it isn't. It's about the complete and utter unwillingness to give you what you want if it even slightly discomforts them.

Libra is fiercely independent and they feel the need to protect their boundaries at all costs. And who could blame them? Unfortunately, getting to know a Libra through and through is not an achievable thing. They simply prefer to be alone, without you, without ever having to be held accountable for their actions.

2. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarians have within them the capability to be as warm as the sun at midday, and as cold as a iceberg in the Arctic if you mess with them. What makes them grow cold and silent is the idea that they are being lied to or betrayed. Your happy-go-lucky, talkative, engaged Sag friend will go utterly ghost on you if they suspect wrong doing.

These folks are unforgiving and cruel in so much that if you are friends or lovers with one, they'll let you slide just enough for you to get used to their kindness... and then, one false move on your part and you will be cut out of their lives with no chance of recourse. They are silent, stealthy and absolute — a bit harsh, but do they care? No.

3. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Sneaky, silent Aquarius is always plotting away. Don't try to get too close to these people — their silence will act as a protective shield between the two of you. This group is quiet but mischievous. They don't find power in spoken words; in fact, they feel it detracts from who they are.

However, that doesn't mean they can't express themselves. They have a knack for the poison pen and can write their secret thoughts out in ways that once expressed, do more damage than spoken words ever could. The silence of Aquarians is not a calm place; it's where they plot, devise, design and prepare. They are not to be trusted, especially when they go into "quiet mode."

4. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Known for their cool demeanor and their "I have no f*cks left to give" attitude, Scorpio is a prime candidate for the "speak softly and carry a big stick" crowd. Scorpios know that their true power isn't in what they share or speak of, it's in what they withhold.

Scorpio isn't naturally quiet, but they are naturally reserved and power hungry. They've seen how it drives you bonkers when they pull the silent treatment on you, and that gives them the upper hand. It's all about leverage with Scorpio, so they use the conspiracy of silence as a tool to bring you to your knees, where you belong, according to them.

5. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

People born under this sign are both expressive and clam-like. They tighten up when they are threatened, but it hurts them because they are also naturally verbal. Repressing the urge to speak is against their nature, but they also feel silenced by those who won't listen to them.

They give up easily, and fighting for something only goes so far with Gemini. For all their sensitivity and friendliness, Gemini is also highly defensive and will choose the path of least resistance in order to survive. And sometimes that path requires that they shut the hell up... indefinitely.

6. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Another sign that enjoys expressing themselves is Cancer, which is why you know they're in pain when they go silent. And they do have the tendency to process pain in quiet, unspoken ways. Cancer wants the world to be happy; they want things to go the right way, and when they don't, they take it to heart.

Cancer has a natural sense of responsibility and so they take on the world as if it's their sole responsibility. Now, taking on the world is some serious business, and nobody, not even Cancer, can do it. What happens is that they sink into silent contemplation where if they had their druthers, no one would ever bother them again.
