Good ol' passive-aggressive behavior. We've all heard of it, and I'm sure we've all experienced it. But passive-aggressive behavior is a subtle thing and cannot always be picked up on. Hence, the "passive" bit.

How can you tell you've encountered once of the passive-aggressive zodiac signs? Based on what they say, it's easy to determine that they are acting this way, and though a horoscope or astrology can aid you, what they say matters most.

Passive-aggressive behavior is what someone gives you when they want something to go their way but they don't have the guts to actually say it in words. It could range in importance and can definitely be used in any situation, be it bad or very, very bad.

Say for instance you know your partner has emotionally left the romantic portion of the relationship, and yet they haven't actually said anything that would let you know what's on their mind. Because they are afraid to confront you with whatever is on their mind, they just let you think what you want while still going about their business.

In other words, if you have a passive-aggressive romantic partner who is no longer interested in you, but is more fearful of your reaction, that person may act in such a way to drive you away from them. And in the end, it'll all be on you. Passive-aggressive partners will end a relationship by being just obnoxious enough to make you want to flee form them, while allowing the situation to look like it's all your fault.

The kicker with passive-aggressive behavior is that it all revolves around not saying what you mean, and avoiding confrontation at all costs. What are the most passive-aggressive things that each zodiac sign can say?
