When it comes to our daily lives, we know it’s impossible to avoid emotions—the good, the bad, and everything in between.
While some people may thoroughly enjoy expressing their feelings, it’s not quite as simple for others. Some aren’t as comfortable in emotional realms as they are in logical ones. Some may have plenty of pent-up feelings, but don’t want to deal with them. And others simply don’t want to open up when they aren’t ready. This can lead people to become emotionally avoidant in their relationships, as they don’t have strong desires to wade into intense emotional territory.
Astrologically, there are some zodiac signs who have a reputation for being emotionally avoidant. Check out the signs below (Sun and Moon) to see which zodiac signs are the most emotionally avoidant.
Aquarius signs aren’t devoid of emotion, but they get apprehensive about letting them run wild. Aquarians are more likely to analyze their emotions than feel them deeply because they aim to make sense of things that are difficult to control. While they are willing to share their feelings with people they love, it doesn’t come naturally. They want to express their emotions in the perfect way because they wish to be understood. Ultimately, though, Aquarius doesn’t want to dive too deeply into emotional matters and is more likely to avoid such conversations until they are good and ready—not a moment sooner.
Sagittarius probably has the biggest reputation for being emotionally avoidant—though it isn’t because they hate their feelings. Sagittarius signs are curious (and aren’t afraid to experience significant moments in life). Yet, when emotions are at play, things can become overwhelming for them to navigate. Typically, Sagittarians prefer to avoid unpleasant emotions until they feel they are in a safe enough headspace to unpack them. And they will often hold out for as long as possible.
Geminis aren’t afraid of being emotional perse; however, they don’t want negative feelings to ruin whatever is happening in their life. Similar to their sister sign, Sagittarius, Geminis are curious and desire to experience as much of life as possible, and they like to move quickly from one thing to the next. Emotional issues can require undivided attention, and Geminis aren’t always willing to slow down to process. They are more than willing to avoid discussing their feelings if they think such conversing will lead to a drawn-out, unpleasant situation.
Capricorns are more than willing to do what is necessary to get where they want to be in life. However, when talking about emotional matters, they prefer to keep things tight-lipped. If a Capricorn is pushed to open up emotionally, there must be a life-altering reason to do so. Otherwise, they don’t see the point in unpacking messy emotions. While they certainly have feelings, they are far more likely to shove them down and keep pressing forward.
