This Is What Makes Each Zodiac Stop Texting You

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

You said something hurtful to them but they’re too proud to admit it. They will pretend like everything is fine, but they’re replaying what you said over and over again in their head and they’re holding themselves back from texting you until they’re over what you said or until they’re ready to confront you. 

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

You were too unpredictable and hard to read. They like clarity and straightforward people. If they felt like you were being vague, mysterious, or reserved on purpose, they will probably feel like you’re not compatible enough to take things to the next level. 

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

They don’t know where to start. They want to text you, but they don’t know what to say or how to say it, and they keep typing and deleting messages because they don’t want to sound too cheesy or too needy or too serious or too sarcastic…depending on what mood they’re in. 

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

They are waiting for the ‘right moment’ to text you and tell you how they’re feeling or ask you out. They don’t make false promises and they don’t like leading people on, so they have to be very sure that when they reach out, they really mean it. 

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

You did not get their sense of humor. Leos are playful and can sometimes offend people with their jokes, so if you weren’t witty enough to get their sense of humor or they felt like they may have offended you, they’ll be afraid of doing it again because they can’t help it—it’s who they are. 

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

You made fun of something they really like. Maybe you made fun of their cat or their new shoes or the color of their pants. Little things can turn a Virgo off or annoy them and give them a good reason not to text you again. 

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

You don’t like their favorite football team or you hate their favorite singer. Libras enjoy going out to watch games and they love attending concerts, so if you don’t have the same taste when it comes to sports and music, they will find someone else who does. 

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

They’re ghosting you. Scorpios are known to ghost people because they are talking to so many people at the same time and they will not go around explaining why they’re no longer interested, so they take the easy way out and disappear without saying a word. 

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

They’re still doing some research on you. They love to ‘look before they leap’ so they’re still trying to figure out if you’re compatible or not, and they’re weighing out all the pros and cons before they reach out to you so they don’t rush into anything. 

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

You showed them that you’re ready for more. Capricorns believe in ‘timing’ and they will not be with anyone if they’re not fully ready or in the right headspace. They will only text you when the time is right for them because they don’t want to hurt you. 

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

They’re waiting for you to text them. Aquarians don’t know how to play games and they are known to say the wrong thing at the wrong time, so they’re waiting for you to take the lead and start a conversation, and then they’ll follow through because they don’t want to push you away by saying the wrong thing. 

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

They need space. You were probably spending too much time with them and now they’re in hibernation mode to figure out their feelings and what they want. They are known for disappearing when they’re confused and then coming back later as if nothing happened.
