5 Indecisive Zodiac Signs Who Can Be Wishy Washy. getty

We all know people who are wishy-washy, and sometimes the wishy-washy person we know is ourselves. You have a difficult time making decisions, standing up for your beliefs, and often have trouble taking advantage of opportunities when they’re presented.

In astrology, the wishy-washy zodiac signs are often are very sensitive and don’t want a decision they make to hurt someone. They don’t want their actions to have painful consequences.


If you’re one of the indecisive zodiac signs, you may have a tendency to be more passive than assertive; you’re intuitive, emotional, and smart. But the more knowledge you have, the harder it is to come to a decision. The harder you think on a subject, the more variables come into play and it makes it hard to take action.

Many of the personality characteristics we have are shared by others born under the same zodiac sign. If you tend to be wishy-washy and indecisive, it’s not unlikely that other people with your sign are as well.

It’s not that indecisive people don’t have opinions or beliefs, but there are times when it’s easier for them to not say anything in order to keep things peaceful. Some might say that wishy-washy people are too flexible and accommodating, and if they’d just stand up for themselves, they’d do better in the world. But you don’t always have to be aggressive to get what you want.


1. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libras are so busy taking everything into consideration that they make it even more difficult for themselves to make a decision. They have strong opinions, but there are times they don't want to cause any friction or have anything they say lead to an unpleasant confrontation.

Sometimes it's just easier to agree with people rather than take the chance of upsetting them. The worst would be for Libra to make a decision that causes a lot of tension and negativity.

2. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancers are extremely sensitive and sometimes they would rather retreat into their cave than stand up for their own beliefs. Cancers can be somewhat pessimistic, and when they are, they get into a mindset where they start thinking that no matter what they do or say, it's not going to change the world at large.


If they experience a failure or disappointment, they're probably not going to stick their neck out and say something controversial. They'd rather keep things low-key and safe.

3. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarians have times when they are wavering with their decisions. They'll say yes, then no, and then will think about it again. They are masters of waffling, and even once they've made a decision, they'll go back and re-think it.

Once there's no turning back, Sagittarius individuals may continue to consider the options and choices they didn't make. They never want to miss out, and sometimes just the act of deciding on something prevents them from doing something else.

4. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Geminis can be wishy-washy because they don't want to have to commit to something and then regret it later. Geminis like to leave their options way open, and when they're forced to choose, it makes them feel confined and tied down, and they really don't like that.

Since Geminis are the sign of the twins, they're of two minds, and those minds don't always agree when it comes to making a decision.

5. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces can be wishy-washy in the way they let opportunities slip by.


Let's say that a friend of Pisces recommends them for a great job at a museum. Pisces knows all they have to do is get their resume in order and reach out to the contact their friend gave them, but they start to think about how much work they have to do on their resume, and if they have a job, they won't have enough time to work on their own projects.

Soon enough, with all their dithering, the window has closed and the job is no longer available.
