What Topic Not To Talk About, By Zodiac Sign

I remember being at this networking event and I kept making small talk with this person. I didn't know what to say.

Getting to know someone in the 21st century is really difficult. you never know if a topic can be total hit or miss. For example, a person may love to talk about zodiac signs, planetary transits and astrology, while some may not.

They may prefer to never hear what their horoscope says and if you tell them you share similarities in personality traits because you are both of the same Sun sign, they silently shut down and tune you out.

What's worse about having an awkward conversation is not having any at all. But, I think as people we want to make these human connections. We just don't know how. At work, taboo topics are even more prevalent, and this complicates learning what not to say, and what never to explore when opening up about ideas or discussing during a debate. 

You can learn how to avoid things you like to talk about are absolute topics that the person doesn't want to talk on at all. You don't have to go through that whole awkward “I don't know what to say next and neither do you.” Then there's that awkward silence where no one says anything for a good five seconds and you wonder is this the make-or-break. Small talk sucks for anyone.

But what if we can remedy all that? What if we can look to the stars to tell us what topics to avoid for each zodiac sign? Read further if you want to know what topics to avoid as per someone's astrological identity.
