zodiac signs who don't know how to say no

You know when your entire family shows up from out of town and barge on into your tiny studio apartment, asking, "Can we stay here for the week? We won't be a bother, we promise!"? To which you stand there, looking horrified, knowing that Hell just arrived at your door with a promise of terrors, broken furniture, and loud kids that will probably get you evicted. 

And you say, "Yes, of course, come on in." From then, it's just a slow march to the Xanax bottle in the medicine cabinet. This is a reality that's all too common for the zodiac signs who don't know how to say no. And if you can't figure out yet who they are, we can thank astrology for giving us a deeper look.

People who can't say no do so for several reasons, and the first and most prominent reason may be due to a fear of being rejected. To cause disappointment in another by telling them "no" may open up the doors to resentment by the other party, thereby putting the one who said "no" in jeopardy of being disliked or even hated. Not everyone takes "no" well, and some can't take it at all.

Those are the people who created the histrionic stereotype "If I don't get my way, I'll have a fit, I swear!" If you witness one of these hissy fits and don't have the stomach to endure more of it, you might end up a person who just says "yes" to humor them. When fear of confrontation is your main concern, then you sign on for a lifetime of saying yes, even when you mean no.

1. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries is a people pleaser. They want to say yes — to you, to them, to this, to that. Yes is a great word for Aries as they are a very positive and ambitious sign.

Where they end up hurting themselves is when they find it difficult to say no, even when they know that "no" is the only answer. They won't risk your rejection, so they'll end up trying even harder to please you.

2. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Getting the job done is what it's about for Capricorn, and that means they are yes-men/women all the way. They know that the only way they can accomplish their means is by making sure everyone is happy and willing to get the machine running smoothly.

So, Capricorn might think you're the absolute worst, but if you're the right one for the job, it's all "yes, yes, yes." They cannot say no to someone who works hard, no matter how much they disagree with them or their requests.

3. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer cannot say no because they don't believe in no. They honestly think that whatever is required can and will be done. It's just about doing it, not talking, not complaining.

If you ask a Cancer a question that can be answered simply, they will answer, "Yes," and that will be that. Cancer rarely sees anything as impossible.

4. PISCES (February 19 - March 10)

This friendly sign merely wants your approval — 24/7, with no time off. This is what we call... a job. Pisces works hard at this job because having and keeping friends is of utmost importance, and as we all know, sometimes you have to bend over backwards to please your friends.

In the case of Pisces, they would rather do something awful with a friend than tell that friend, "No, I can't do that with you." Noble martyrs, or neurotic worry warts?

5. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

When Libra crawls out of their small closet of fear and self-loathing, they crawl out just long enough to fear you and whatever you might want from them. In their minds, they will disagree with you one million percent, yet they will tell you that you are one million percent correct.

Libra lies constantly, and they do it to avoid being noticed. Libra can't say no to you, because "no" might mean they'd have to do more than bore you to death.

6. LEO (July 23 - August 22)

As the main show off of the zodiac, you can best believe that Leo is right up there with the signs that simply cannot say no to just about any request. All the world's a stage to Leo, and all requests of them are basically requests for their greatness — in their minds.

And why, oh why, would they ever deny you such greatness? Ask away, the answer will always be yes... as long as you're asking about them.
