You definitely want them around in a crisis.

Does astrology have anything to do with your ability to keep your head while those around you are losing theirs? There are calm zodiac signs who are good at staying composed, and these individuals want to be with you during intense and volatile situations. 

Some people are able to remain peaceful under the most extreme circumstances, while others have a very low-key personality anyway. If you’re someone who has a healthy lifestyle and gets enough sleep, eats right, exercises, and takes care of themselves, they’ll be much more capable of handling an emergency than someone who doesn’t.

Many times, someone who is able to stay calm in stressful situations has an excellent support system. Being able to ask for advice or knowing that other people have your back can help you to stay cool and collected.

You never want to make a stressful situation worse by losing control or having a meltdown. If you can stay calm, you’re better able to think straight and have a firm grasp on the situation.

1. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libras are good at staying calm and keeping things from getting worse in a stressful situation. They stay calm by keeping a positive mindset and don't allow themselves to fixate on any negativity.

They will stop themselves from thinking about worst-case scenarios or what happened to someone else in a similar situation. Libras refocus their mind, kicking out any negative/dangerous thoughts, and concentrate on peaceful solutions.

2. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorns are good at staying calm because they're patient and not impulsive. Capricorns will take as much time as they're able to slow down so they can think without reacting and making things worse.

They're problem-solvers by nature and are used to considering what actions will make the situation worse and which will make it better. Capricorns are extremely thoughtful, wise, and you always want their support because of their caution and their intelligence.

3. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Geminis are amazing at staying calm in tense situations. They never ask why or what if; instead, they focus on what needs to be done. They know that this kind of question can cause fear and panic and isn't helpful.

The last thing Geminis want to do is to escalate the problem. They think of the facts of the crisis and what is the best way for them to fix or at least improve upon the situation. Gemini will try to talk down the person who is spinning out of control or advise others of a possible solution that everyone can live with.

The last thing Taurus wants is to stay in an endless loop of stress and crisis, so they're going to do what they can to defuse the situation.

5. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

One of the ways that Aquarius is able to stay calm is that they always try to disconnect from the situation for a moment to collect their thoughts. Aquarians are able to keep their emotions in check, so that's helpful in not escalating a stress situation.

They have the ability to look at the big picture and see things from other people's perspective, which helps them decide on the best solution. Aquarians are ingenious and amazing at coming up with creative ways to handle a volatile circumstance.
