The Best Zodiac Signs To Vent To getty

We all need someone we can vent to, but that’s a big ask. Sometimes you just want to talk and let it out; you don’t want advice, just someone to listen without judgment and keep your secrets.

Unfortunately, not everybody has the patience or the ability to be a good listener. Some individuals hijack the conversation and make it about them, while others will try to find a solution before you’ve fully spewed out all your feelings.


Using astrology, it's clear that some personality types are more likely to listen to you vent. And these particular zodiac signs feel comfortable around others who want to let their emotions out and get things off their chest.

If you’re spilling your guts to someone and they have no compassion or empathy, you feel worse than before.. You may not need emotional validation, but you need to know someone is supporting you and has your back.


1. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces are great to vent to because they're empathetic, compassionate, and will offer you any kind of emotional validation that you need. They're sensitive and they're not going to do or say anything that might upset you further.

Pisces are selfless, and they're going to make sure you get the help and support you require before they ever think about their own needs.

4. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus can be extremely patient and they're not going to rush you to finish up what you're saying, nor are they going make you do anything you're not ready to do. They won't judge you or try to insert themselves in the conversation by trying to one-up your problems.

What happened to you is unique, and even if Taurus had a similar experience, it's not the same as what you went through.

5. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Geminis are great to vent to because they understand how it's the best thing you can do for yourself. They may be great conversationalists, but they're also great at listening. They won't interrupt, but they may help steer the conversation in a more helpful direction, or they may ask questions that will help you to clarify what's going on in your head.


If you get overly-emotional while venting, Gemini will let you know that you're safe with them and that whatever you need to do, they'll support.
