what confuses each zodiac sign

When you’re starting a relationship with someone, you want to get to know them better and find out what things they love and hate. You want to form an idea of what gets them happy, excited, and inspired. You also want to know what they absolutely can’t stand, what angers them, or what confuses them.

And when it comes to what confuses each zodiac sign, specifically, astrology is a great way to find out. Because a lot of people are confusing, and what better way to determine why than by using the stars?

One of the ways to better understand someone is to find out what baffles and mystifies them. If you can help them find healthy ways to deal with their confusion, all the better. Sometimes the things that confuse us about other people are traits that we don’t like to admit we have. We can be confusing to ourselves. Have you ever wondered why you did something when you never even had any desire to do it in the past?

There are many mysteries in life, and most of them we’ll never solve. It keeps things interesting and helps to prevent us from ever getting bored or complacent. So, sometimes getting confused inspires us to find out more and try to solve the puzzle.

When something confuses you about someone else, it can put up a wall. You don’t get why they do the things they do, and the feeling can overwhelm you so you don’t even try to work through the confusion to get to a place of clarity.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries get confused by people who overthink to the extent that they're paralyzed by their indecision. They are known to impulsively take action, so they don't get how fear could prevent someone from jumping all in and not considering the consequences.

They don't understand people who don't take chances or who like to do the same things day after day. Aries likes to do new things, cultivate new interests, and know that if they were stuck in a routine, they'd be bored out of their head.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus are confused by people who give in too easily. What's the point in even trying if you're going to concede early on in the game? Taurus are stubborn and are known for digging their heels in and fighting until they've won. When someone gives up, even if it makes Taurus the winner, the victory feels empty to them.

If you're going to compete, give it your all, otherwise you're just a quitter. Tauruses also don't understand people who feel that they have to schedule something for every moment of the day. They know how important it is to chill and relax

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Geminis are confused by people who are rigid, set in their ways, and take everything way too seriously. Geminis are smart enough to know how important having a sense of humor and being flexible are, and that if you're open to the unexpected, great things can happen, but if you're too closed off, they won't.

They don't understand people who refuse to listen. Even if you don't agree with Gemini, at least consider what they have to say without dismissing it out of hand.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancers are confused by people who don't have a romantic bone in their body. How can anyone not be interested in love and all the romantic trappings that go with it? They also don't understand people who keep their feelings to themselves and aren't interested in other people's emotions either.

Cancers can't see how you can bond with someone if you aren't able to express how you're feeling with them. Indifference confuses them and people who have no compassion for themselves or others.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libras are confused by people who love confrontation and are always looking for a fight. They don't thrive on conflict and it doesn't make them feel more alive to be sparring with another person — it makes them upset.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpios are confused by people who think lying is no big deal, because it's a huge deal for Scorpio! They don't understand insensitive people, people who don't give a damn, and people who have no purpose in life.

Since Scorpio is a very sexual sign, they don't understand people who don't like to be touched or don't need sex or intimacy. These signs are confused by people without passion. They don't get how some people aim low and don't even try to better themselves or their lives.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

When someone is having an emotional meltdown, that confuses Aquarius because they don't know what they're supposed to do (if anything) or how they should handle it. The truth is that many times their own emotions confuse them. They'd prefer not to act from the heart if they can avoid it.

Aquarians are creative and intelligent thinkers, so they don't understand people who never think outside the box and who follow the rules to the letter. People who don't like nature confuse Aquarius because to them, being outside in nature is one of the best things you can do for yourself.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Deliberately mean people confuse Pisces, as well as people who refuse to help others. People who don't have active imaginations is something that Pisces people have difficulty wrapping their minds around.

They don't understand those who are selfish, self-serving, or who lack empathy for others. Kindness goes a long way with this sign, and if someone doesn't have a drop of it, it's practically impossible for them to process.
