6 Polite Zodiac Signs Who Always Treat Others With Respect

They've got good manners.

When you’re polite, it doesn't mean that you have to be fake or a pushover; it means that you’re considerate, you have good manners, and you treat people with respect. In astrology, the polite zodiac signs are ones who stand out the most for their demeanor.

If you’re someone who doesn't care about anyone else’s opinion or you have no empathy for others, you’re probably not very polite. See, you can live a full and happy life and not be polite, but when you have good manners and a set of rules that you follow, some things will be easier and you’ll feel more comfortable.


When it comes to being polite, you don’t have to follow gender rules. If you’re sitting in a subway car and someone (no matter what gender they identify with) clearly needs to sit down, you offer them your seat. This doesn't make you weak or a joke; this makes you someone who is thoughtful and kind.


Helping people when they need it or having patience in situations where nerves are frayed is what polite people do. It goes beyond treating people well — it’s having an empathy for them. It’s easy to enjoy being around these people because they’re likable, sincere, and make us feel comfortable, respected, and valuable.

1. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

One of the reasons that Libras are so likable is their politeness. They have opinions like everybody else, and they're happy to share them with people. What Libras won't do is push their opinions on somebody else, and if that person is vehement that they're correct, Libra will not force the issue.

Libras are considerate enough to listen to what the other person has to say with an open mind, but they won't bully someone in order to get them to do what they want or think the way Libra thinks they should.

2. LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leos are great with people and they always try to show the proper amount of respect. If a Leo meets you at a party and you introduce yourself in a certain way, Leo will continue to use that name until you tell them differently.

They don't assume that you're immediately best friends or that it's okay to call you by the nickname the other kids called you in school. Leo knows that if you want them to call you something specific, you'll let them know. This is a great habit, especially when meeting a prospective client, a boss, or an elder person for the first time.

3. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgos might be polite because they're very familiar with the rules of modern behavior or because they don't like to make other people feel disrespected or uncomfortable.

Virgos never gossip; they try never to talk behind people's back, preferring to talk to them openly, and they never actively seek it out or listen to it. They certainly wouldn't make any kind of decision based on gossip.

4. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Geminis couldn't be as socially gifted as they are if they weren't polite and thoughtful. Gemini is the person at the party who introduces themselves to strangers or makes introductions so a group of people who didn't know each other before have something they can talk about together.


When being introduced, Geminis will always step forward, smile, tilt their head slightly forward (even if they're not aware of this sign of respect), and act as if they couldn't be more honored to meet a new person.

5. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)



Pisces show their consideration of others and their politeness by never hogging the conversation and bragging about how awesome they are, how much money they have, or the way they look. It's awkward, rude, and boring when someone won't shut up about themselves.

They don't humblebrag either because it's just as obnoxious and is just another way to say how great they are. Pisces are more likely to ask questions of the other person so they can hear about their life and get to know them better.

6. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus won't try to skate around the elephant in the room. If they're somewhere where they come into contact with someone they know just had a family member or friend died, they won't pretend they don't know about the death. Instead, they will keep it simple and offer their condolences. Once this uncomfortable topic has been dealt with, the conversation can move on to other topics.

The other person is wondering if the topic will be brought up — it has been dealt with and there are (hopefully) no more potential landmines that can inadvertently be set off.
