How To Understand Each Zodiac Sign's Text Message

Trying to figure out what a text message means is a complicated matter. You don't really know how to answer a person unless you get what they are trying to say.

Often times, there’s more than one way to decode a text.

One person might be into brevity, while a Gemini zodiac sign might write a book. You might have a bad day and hear a negative tone to the text that you're reading while the person on the other side may be having the best day of their life, and when they send you something sarcastic while trying to be playful, you get rubbed the wrong way and misread the entire thing.

Getting a reply of “K” could mean complete agreement at its best, but at its worst, it could mean that someone is so fed up that they can’t even bother to text back a full word.

“We need to talk” could signal a discussion of something as mundane as this week’s grocery list, or something as emotionally intense as a recent conflict that threatens the status of your relationship.

And emojis could reflect a whole host of feelings based on who’s on the other end of the conversation.

Sure, context might help us figure out just what the other party might mean, but sometimes it’s just impossible. In these ambiguous situations, we could use all the help we can get.

Searching google for answers and sending screenshots sent to trusted friends are oft-consulted methods, but even these don’t always work out as well as we may have hoped.

Astrology could help us decode these mystery texts when nothing else can. Read on and locate the other person's horoscope to find out how the personalities of each zodiac sign could explain some of those mysterious messages you’ve been getting.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

For Aries, honesty is the best policy; this could be great, but it could also spell disaster. Don’t be surprised if Aries’ impatience, moodiness, or short-temper finds itself on full display, as it’s in Aries’ nature to show their emotional cards without reservation. They’re also fans of staying active and taking the lead, even knowing how to send a text message from their computer, so frequent requests to make plans or voice opinions should be expected.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Taurus is reliable and has a great distaste for insecurity, so they’re likely to send quick and meaningful replies in text message when applicable. While this is admirable in certain situations, Taurus may take it too far when their possessive nature and fear of insecurity get the best of them. In the same vein, what could be read as devotion could quickly turn into over-protectiveness if Taurus’ worries go unchecked?

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

At the outset, Gemini puts their quick-witted, fun-loving personality on full display including in the way that they send a text message. Deeper conversations can reveal many of Gemini’s other characteristics, such as their indecision, fear of loneliness, and ability to be serious and thoughtful when necessary. While their affection is often genuine, feeling like they’re falling into a routine could cause Gemini to lose interest.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Emotion plays a big role in Cancer’s texting. Their ability to be sympathetic and intuitive could serve them well, but insecurity and moodiness could end up putting them in hot water. A Cancer’s offer to help should be seen as legitimate, as helping close others is one of their specialties. But revealing details about their personal life over text messages isn’t something they’re comfortable doing at first, so tread lightly when it comes to figuring them out.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Leo isn’t afraid to let their passion and confidence shine through even when texting, but by the same token, their arrogance and dominance have a way of revealing themselves. They can’t stand being ignored and won’t settle for anything less than the royal treatment, so giving them less than your full attention or leaving them hanging might not be the best idea. However, when Leo feels respected, they’ll allow their sense of humor and cheerful disposition to drive the conversation.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

In Virgo’s mind, there is always a method to what you may perceive as madness. They’re very analytical and always paying attention, so its possible they’re having just as much trouble decoding your messages as you are decoding theirs. Their loyalty rarely falters, but in certain situations, it may be accompanied by shyness, worry, or criticism. Whatever the case, being rude to Virgo via text definitely won’t help the uncomfortable situation you may find yourself in.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Libra thrives when they feel connected with others, but their penchant for carrying grudges and fear of loneliness could potentially get in the way of the stable connection they desire. Conversations with Libra will most likely be free from conflict, though this harmony may be a result of Libra’s tendency to avoid confrontations while text messaging. When texting Libra, it would be wise to give them equal opportunity to share their thoughts, as fairness is one of their core principles.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Scorpio places a high value on truth and honesty, but their jealous, secretive nature could lead them astray. Still, they can be regarded as a dedicated and trusted confidant who won’t be afraid to express their emotions when necessary. Conversations with Scorpio will be most fruitful if you refrain from being passive or asking them too many personal questions via text.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Sagittarius isn’t afraid to say exactly what’s on their mind, so don’t expect to be playing guessing games with them, especially in text messages. At their best, Sagittarius will rely on their extroversion, sense of humor, and enthusiasm to guide conversations with others. However, their inability to be patient or tendency to make unrealistic promises may end up putting a strain on your conversation with them.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Capricorn can be very hard to read, and its tough to know exactly what makes them tick. Their thought processes are usually practical but don’t be surprised if you get a glimpse at their unforgiving, condescending nature at times. It’s also typical of Capricorn to expect the worst and act like they know everything, so depending on the situation, it may be necessary to either reassure them or bring them back down to earth.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Rather than emotion, Aquarius prefers to rely on intellect when conversing with others (don’t hold your breath waiting for heart emojis or sappy remarks). They also appreciate their alone time, so slow replies shouldn’t be seen as a sign of any trouble. Aquarius wouldn’t appreciate you breaking a promise or disagreeing with them, but if you do, they’ll most likely be willing to work out the issue.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Pisces’ compassionate, intuitive nature allows them to connect with others very easily, but their fear of criticism, coupled with their tendency to be overly trusting, could make things a little more complicated. Though they are skilled in developing emotional relationships, they also prefer their alone time and love escaping from the confines of reality, solidifying their reputation as a wild card. Ultimately, you’re most likely to have a good conversation with a Pisces if you refrain from bringing up salacious or embarrassing stories from their past.
