Why Each Zodiac Sign Has Trouble Talking To New People

Aries

You aren’t good at small talk. You want to dive deeper — and this intimidates some people.

Taurus

You don’t like making the first move. You want other people to approach you.

Gemini

You feel like you’re awkward. You feel like you come across as a weirdo.

Cancer

You’re worried you’re bothering them and wasting their time, so you keep to yourself.

For the person who is always googling astrological compatibility when they meet someone new.

How You’ll Do Everything Based On Your Zodiac Sign includes an exhaustive analysis of each sign’s personality. You’ll learn which high school clique represents them (Pisces are the cool art kids), who would get eaten first in a scary movie (Gemini, obviously) to how each sign prefers to say ‘I love you’ (for Taurus, it’s with good food). Alternating between silly, sweet, and serious, this book is filled with deep dives into the mind of everyone whose birth chart you can get your hands on.

Pisces

You’re worried they won’t want to be friends with you or hear what you have to say, so you completely avoid them. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
