The Quietest Zodiac Signs (And Why)

top 5 quiet zodiac signs


Everyone knows people who are quiet. Some people are quiet because they are shy. Others don’t say much because they have very calm personalities and simply don’t get overly excited about too many things. Regardless of why people are silent, they can often refer this silence to their zodiac sign. Just like other personality traits, how quiet you are can be directly affected by the zodiac sign you were born under. However, just because a person is quiet doesn’t mean they don’t have anything to say. There are a lot of reasons why some of us stay in the background when they’re around other people. Let’s explain more.

Our Top 5

1. Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Preparation Before Speaking

Cancers are quiet, but it’s because they like to be perfectly prepared before they speak. They also like to anticipate any questions or comments that other people may make once they start talking. This takes time. When they do start to talk, they like to take their time. Sometimes, the people listening to them get a bit frustrated because they are taking a little too long to get their message across. In fact, often these people can’t get their words out by the time they are actually ready to share their information with others. Once they start to speak up they often do so in a very systematic way which will bore their audience soon enough.

Deep Thinkers

Cancers also tend to put a lot of emotions and deep thoughts into everything they say. It may take a while for them to get those thoughts in the right place so they can verbalize them. In other words, they take what they’re going to say seriously. Therefore, they do not speak unless everything they want to say is likely to sound perfect in the end.

2. Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Organizing Thoughts

Although Capricorns have great leadership skills, they are perfectionists in the sense that they do not want to say anything until the words coming out of their mouths are well-organized and easy to understand. Because of this, they are often the quietest people in the room. That is, until they get their thoughts together and are no longer afraid to speak up about a particular topic.

Waiting To Be Ready

If they try to say something when they’re not ready, the words they are thinking in their heads and the words that are coming out of their mouths won’t exactly match up. Once this happens, the words they’re saying might even sound harsh to others because sometimes, they speak too soon. This is something they don’t like. They usually sit on the sidelines, so to speak, until they are completely ready to say what they have to say in the manner they wish to say it in.

3. Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Making Mental Notes

Scorpios love their privacy and they hate sharing secrets with anyone they don’t know well enough to completely trust. It isn’t that they’re necessarily shy, it’s just that they do not trust everyone to keep their secrets. Therefore, they normally don’t say a whole lot when they’re in a crowd of people. Sometimes, Scorpios aren’t staying quiet because they’re not paying attention to what’s going on around them. They’re staying quiet because they are making mental notes to themselves about everything that is being said by the people in their circle.

Gaining Trust

When they have something to say and they have a captive and interested audience, Scorpios will talk just as much as the next person. They are a bit secretive but mostly just want to be sure that what they are saying is being said in front of people they can trust. They don’t want everyone to know their secrets so they stay quiet until the appropriate time. Afterwards, however, what they’re saying will make a lot of sense.

4. Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Finding The Perfect Answer

Taurus people are very deep thinkers and because of this, they will spend long periods of time thinking things through before they say them. It isn’t necessarily perfectionism that makes them do this, although some of them are. They just want to think about the situation in depth before saying anything out loud. If it’s a problem they’re thinking over, it stays in their minds until they feel like they’ve solved the issue. Sometimes this takes a very long time.

Waiting For Something Important To Say

Of course, when a Taurus talks, you’ll want to listen to everything they’re saying, mainly because they do not talk nonsense. When they talk, they have something important to say because they rarely talk just for the sake of talking. Instead, they’ll stay quiet until they know that what they’re planning to say is well thought through. 

5. Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Gathering Information

The interesting thing about Virgos is that even though they are quiet a lot of the time, they are continuously observing every single thing that is going on around them. Not only are they paying attention to everything that’s going on, they’re also planning how they’re going to use that information when it’s their turn to speak. Virgos love knowledge, and they love to show off that knowledge. Especially if there’s a question or problem to which they know the answer or solution!

Waiting For Their Turn To Speak

Virgos also never mind waiting until it’s their turn to speak, which is yet another reason why they are nice and quiet until the time is right. They want the things they’ll be saying to come out perfectly and to sound intelligent. This is one of the main reasons they seem quiet to other people. They simply don’t speak in an unorganized way. Another interesting trait that Virgos have is that when you get into a one-on-one conversation with them, they are not quiet at all. In fact, in these situations they are quite talkative and will sound just like people born under many other signs.
