Is your sign a motormouth, or the strong and silent type?
From small talk to big ideas, humans love conversation. There are nearly seven thousand languages spoken in the world today (and that’s not counting those that grew out of fictional worlds, like Klingon or Elvish — we love to talk so much that even linguistic systems from stories catch on and become real languages).
The Air signs (Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius) are most often associated with language and communication. Most speech requires breath, so that connection is easy to see, but it’s also the idea of communication itself: the connection from one mind to another.
Even if you’re “speaking from the heart,” language is processed in the brain. Because the Air signs rule the mental realms, they’re thought to be the best speakers and writers.
That doesn’t necessarily mean that the Air signs do the most speaking, just that they tend to do it well. For some people, it depends on what they’ve got to say. These are the folks who linger at the edge of a group, perfectly happy to just listen and observe, until the conversation turns to something that interests them. And then look out, because they own the room from that point forward.
In, the third house rules speech and communication, so you might want to see which rules that section of your chart. Look for your natal Mercury’s position, too. This planet is named after the god of eloquence and its location in your chart will show where your own gift of gab will serve you best. Don’t forget to check , too, to see if you speak your mind today or just keep your mouth shut.
Here are the most talkative zodiac signs who make it impossible for others to get a word in edgewise, ranked from most to least.
1. GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
This Air sign is ruled by Mercury. They can’t not talk.and their quick minds let them switch gears as often as necessary to keep the conversation going.
Gemini can relate to almost anyone, and they have no problem leading the discussions or chiming in with something worthwhile even if they don’t know a lot about the subject.
2. ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
No filter here!may not be the most eloquent sign of the Zodiac, but when they’ve got something to say, you better believe that everyone around is going to hear it.
Aries can shout over anyone and anything, and they’ll keep it up until they’ve said their piece. Anyone disagree with them? Buckle up for a loud, long debate!
3. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
Honest, enthusiastic, and to-the-point,about their favorite subjects (of which there are hundreds on any given day).
Sagittarius makes a great teacher, though you might have to make them stop and back up now and then; they tend to get ahead of themselves and their audience. The best way to shut Sagittarius up is to give them a new book, or offer to teach them something that they’ve never heard of before.
4. PISCES (February 19 – March 20)
. If you give them an opening, they’ll tell you all about it… and then probably tell you all about yours, too.
5. LEO (July 23 – August 22)
. They don’t have conversations so much as put on an improv act. Leo loves to tell stories, make grand proclamations, and please the crowds.
You’ll get your chance to speak too, but you’re going to have to wait for your cue. If Leo’s on a roll, that won’t come for quite awhile.
6. AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
, and they’re often found up on a podium, rallying the crowd to pay attention to some major world problem. Then again, even in a private conversation, Aquarius can’t help but give speeches.
They’ve done their research. They really care about the topic. They can’t rest until everyone else understands what’s at stake.
7. LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
As an Air sign,, but they know when to listen, too.
Libra is the negotiator of the Zodiac, and their love of balance makes them a great conversationalist. They have a lot to say, but they also know how to take turns so that everyone gets a chance to be heard.
8. VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
, so they’ve always got a lot on their mind. Naturally a bit neurotic and anxious, they might not always feel brave enough to speak up, but just let them notice something that’s going wrong, and they’ll give you an earful about it.
Virgo’swhen it comes to providing valuable critiques.
9. TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
Small talk, stupid jokes, and
avorite art and other treasures.
However, since Taurus is all about absorbing the best that life has to offer through their physical senses, they’d rather spend the time experiencing these pleasures instead of just talking about them.
10. CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
, so they guard their thoughts as carefully as they guard their home turf. They do appreciate someone who really understands them, though.
It takes awhile to earn Cancer’s trust, but once you’ve achieved this honor, you’ll hear a lot about what’s really going on in their heart as well as their mind.
11. CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)
to waste time with frivolous conversation. They’ve got no problem heading a business meeting or giving a productivity report, but if there’s nothing to say, why should they say anything?
Capricorn. If given time to choose their words, they can get their point across quite effectively.
12. SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
Scorpio knows that the more they listen, the more they learn. While everyone else is spilling their secrets,.
They may or may not use this information later, but it never hurts to know as much as possible about other people while playing one’s own cards close to the chest. Scorpio rarely blurts anything out impulsively — all of their words are carefully calculated for optimum effect.
