Ah, the stoic nature of the stiff upper lip and all that rot, as they say. What on earth does that even mean? Well, the stiff upper lip refers to one who basically can grin and bear it — "it" being anything uncomfortable; something to make one wince.

Yet, the stoic will take the pain and ride it out, with a stiff upper lip to show that they are not only unaffected, but unperturbed as well. The same goes for the zodiac signs who pretend not to care (but actually do). Even a negative horoscope may hurt them to their core, but they'll never outwardly show it.

Luckily, astrology can be a guide to discover the people who have it in their minds that they need to play it cool no matter what. This is not altogether such a bad thing, as it's the cool, calm cucumber of a person that we run to when we need to ground ourselves in the tumultuous storm that is life on earth.

These folks are anchors; they hold down the fort when things get too crazy, and we rely upon them for the comfort they seem to carry with them in abundance. But are those who appear to be collected during the storm actually as stoic and determined as they seem?

Ah, there's the question! Because some of us actually like to pretend to be carefree, when indeed we can be ruffled as much as the next guy. Who are the zodiac signs who pretend not to care but actually do? Here are the top 6 pretenders:

1. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

As a point of pride, Aries wants to be perceived as the most solid person in the room, and while it may be a total act (it is), they will go out of their way to appear calm and collected.

They have no reason for this other than to impress you, as it is next to impossible for them to actually "not care." They care, and they pretend not to... for your sake.

2. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus is completely into walking away from problems as if they don't exist. The truth behind this is that if they start to care too much about something, they figure it's going to end up biting them in the rear, so their best bet is to get out of Dodge before it does.

What do they think of that? They don't care.

3. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer has had it up to here with the B.S. of the world, and when they are finally full up with it, they switch into apathy mode. Cancer cares, but not enough to keep them involved in something that will eventually cause them mental anguish; they know better.

Oh, they may care, but caring can become non-productive, and Cancer wants to be productive.

4. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

No one carries around more anxiety than Libra, so it's very easy for these folks to shut the machine down when they sense it's coming their way.

Libra is a sensitive sign; they care way too much about trivial things, and so, due to experience, they know when to say no to caring and they know how to pretend they don't care because they are experts at it.

5. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

This is a sign that tends to overthink almost everything, and while that may sound counter-productive, it actually works for them in so much as overthinking allows them to know what they shouldn't care about.

If something gives a Virgo too much anxiety, they know to dial down the caring on that topic. Virgo cares, but they go that extra mile to show you they don't.

6. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Well, the truth? Capricorn actually just doesn't care. Or, if they did, you'd seriously never know it. Capricorn likes you to know, in no uncertain terms, that they do not care — for you, for this, for that, for anything.

They just don't care, so it's not really a pretense with them. It's the real thing and they really are that stoic lighthouse in the storm, so to speak. Just don't ask them for help, because where you're concerned, they don't care.
