The Zodiac Signs Who Thrive On Drama Vs. The Ones Who Avoid It

Some people thrive on drama. It's hard to explain why. Either they are the types of people who love the adrenaline rush that comes with a juicy piece of gossip. They might be the type of person who grew up watching soap operas and love to find out what happens next. 

Drama is inescapable for everyone, but some don't thrive on it at all. They are the opposite of those who devour gossip like it’s Thanksgiving dinner, and spread it like butter on their morning toast.

The person who disdains drama avoids it at all costs, and unlike the kind of person who finds drama entertaining, it's a chore to deal with. To a dramatic personality type, a little crisis is “just like the movies” and it gets them starry-eyed.  

Perhaps you're the type that ducks out the second the drama music starts. I guarantee you’ve met these people too. They hear the word, “drama” and cut out before you hear a footstep. Sometimes they’re a little overly avoidant, but they just love the peace and quiet.

Finally, the rarest of us all is the drama diplomat. If you have one in your circle you’re lucky, and if you are one—I applaud you. The diplomats mediate dramatic conflicts among their loved ones and even coworkers, but let harmless silliness play its part. 

But how can you tell who’s who? Astrology can help you determine which of the above zodiac sign types that you are, as well as who your family and friends are, by horoscope date.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Usually Capricorns are far too serious for drama and this good news for everyone. The Capricorn benefits by not being caught up in nonsense, and everyone else benefits from their level-headedness. When you’re in trouble, call on Capricorn to save the day. Be warned though: if you simply want to vent about dramatic affairs, you might get hung up on. 

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

No Aquarian wants to participate in drama, period. Observing, on the other hand, is fascinating for them. As long as their humanitarian inclinations are not somehow insulted by the argument, they’ll gladly stay present and treat the situation like a social psychology case study. Aquarius individuals are likely to turn any social interaction taking place around them into a learning opportunity—because what else is conflict really good for?

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Sad to say, sometimes the fish doesn’t know that they’re wet. Pisces sensitivity can lend itself to drama, but they may fail to realize that it is drama or that they are feeding into it. The best way to help your Pisces buddies is to give them a breath of fresh air without drama and a safe space—that will help them contrast their interactions. If you are a Pisces? Take a step back and maybe a weekend trip.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

While long-standing drama is not their thing, the average Aries definitely causes some short-term drama with their short fuse. If you’re an Aries, you need to keep that temper in check, for everyone’s sake! And you have an Aries in your life, be their anti-drama wingman and pull them away before they say something they regret!

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Stability is one of the top priorities for the Taurus, so drama is just too disruptive for them. When they’re walking away from that foolishness, don’t get in their way… the response to you blocking their path is the most dramatic you will ever see them. Dear Taurus, don’t trample anyone while trying to removing yourself from the negativity. If you have a Taurus in your life, let them be your guide! 

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

The Gemini’s indecisiveness and inconsistency combine to make the perfect drama storm. They may become frustrated by their own flip flopping, or others’ reactions to it, sometimes even lacking the self-awareness to know that they are constantly contradicting themselves. As for how others react to this? You can imagine. When drama arises around a Gemini, make sure nobody makes any rash decisions. Let the dust settle first. 

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Among the drama queens of the zodiac is the persistently moody Cancer. Their emotions are already in high gear when they’re alone, and with others that mix becomes more complicated. Luckily, the drama is normally quickly resolved, since it’s normally just a case of Cancer taking something personally, or a minor misunderstanding between parties. If you are a Cancer, consult the more level-headed signs before unloading. If you know a Cancer, just focus on being as clear as possible so that those miscommunications don’t happen. 

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Lions are royalty in the Natural Kingdom—and also in the Drama Kingdom. Usually, the drama revolves around not being treated to their standard. Please don’t misunderstand Leo, sometimes that’s absolutely valid, but sometimes you just want to be the center of attention. Usually, a quick ego boost helps Leos to move on, though.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Despite being ridiculously nitpicky, Virgos aren’t terribly dramatic. They dish a lot of criticism, but it’s because they genuinely thing matters can, should, and will improve. Still, they have no time for drama, and it’s one of the things they criticize. If you are a Virgo, go easy on ‘em. If you know a Virgo, try to remember they have good hearts. 

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

When drama needs to be mediated, you call in a Libra. While Libras prefer to avoid drama, they naturally have the skills to resolve the underlying issues. You won’t catch them causing any trouble though, and if someone starts problems with them, the Libra will immediately seek a reasonable compromise. If you are a Libra, do be careful that no one takes advantage of your desire for peace. 

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

While Scorpios aren’t prone to the pettiest of dramas, their love lives can easily turn into soap operas. If they’re the cause of the drama, it’s because the snooped through their significant other’s belongings or phone. If they’re not the cause of the drama, they’re likely to seek revenge for the upset. That said, Scorpios are remarkably good friends, and if you appeal to that basic foundation between the Scorpio and another party, you can work things out. 

SAGITARRIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Your friendly local Sagittarius has no problem laughing drama away, but try not to be offended if you’re really invested. You see, our archer friends are perpetually focused on their targets, and can’t take much else seriously. Let their influence help you find peace with the drama. And if you are a Sagittarius, keep on soaring past the distractions like your own arrow.
