Zodiac, Self

Just because somebody is quiet, it doesn't mean they don’t have anything to say. If you’re a quiet person, could it be because of astrology? There are some zodiac signs who talk too much, others too little, and some wo just aren’t comfortable sharing their vulnerabilities with others.

Some personalities just aren’t very talkative, and for the quiet zodiac signs, people often misconstrue their silence. We all want to be heard and understood, and if everyone is talking at once, no one is heard. Sometimes, it’s the best idea to listen to what other people are saying before jumping into the conversation.

Being quiet can sometimes be an unselfish act. You’re letting someone express what they’re feeling without interruption. You’re giving them the floor, so to speak. If no one listens to us when we talk, it feels empty and meaningless.

Listening can be a gift. Think about how much better you feel when you’re expressing your feelings to someone who is entirely present and is letting you get feelings out, without trying to hijack the conversation. Sometimes we just need to take a few moments to collect our thoughts so that when we do speak, it doesn't come out like a jumbled, incoherent rant.

If someone is quiet, you don’t have to assume that they’re plotting and scheming. They may just have other methods of communication that don’t have anything to do with words. 

1. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpios value their privacy, so while everyone around them may be sharing secrets and opening up, Scorpio will stay quiet. They don't want to reveal too much to people that they haven't vetted 100 percent. Besides, it can be beneficial to Scorpio to listen and make notes.

You never know what information you can gather that might be valuable at a later date. Yes, Scorpios can be secretive and mysterious, but it's just how they're wired. They don't speak out of nervousness or a need to fit in; they speak when they have something to say and an attentive audience.

2. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Sometimes the words that Capricorn is thinking and the words that come out of their mouth don't match up. They can sound harsh without that being their intention,or unclear when what they're saying is crystal clear to them.

A Capricorn would rather wait until they have everything in place to speak. They have definite leadership skills, so the more they work on speaking up and getting their message across, the better.

3. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer individuals like to be prepared before they speak. They want to have all the answers ready for any questions that might be asked of them. They like to think things through before speaking, but the problem is that not everyone has the patience to wait until Cancer is ready to speak.

Listeners can get impatient and then steamroll the conversation, so by the time Cancer gets a word in edgewise, it's too late. They tend to have a lot of emotions and deep thoughts that need to get out, they just need to give themselves permission to speak, even if everything isn't in place before they do it.

4. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Tauruses are deep thinkers. They can turn over a problem in their minds for a good, long time. Sometimes they get stuck in their mind so their words are held back and they can't get them out.

Now, this isn't to say that Taurus gives up and just lets whatever they want to express go. No, Tauruses are stubborn and if they want to say something, you better be willing to wait for them to say it. There are strength and wisdom supporting their words, and they don't talk gibberish. When they finally speak, it's worth listening to.

5. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgos may be quiet sometimes but they're extremely present. They observe everything that's happening around them and they use that information. They love learning and showing off their knowledge, so they won't be quiet if it means coming up with an answer that has everyone else stumped.

Virgos are fine with waiting until they know the perfect thing to say, at the exact right time to say it. Also, if you should find yourself in a one on one conversation with them, you'll see that they're definitely not quiet in all circumstances.
