How You Deal With Drama, Based on Your Zodiac Sign
Even for the most passive of peeps, drama is unavoidable. But how you deal with the drama at hand is entirely up to you… or is it?
Our zodiac signs shine light on our personalities, habits and character traits, so it's no surprise that your horoscope comes into play when drama erupts.
Below, find out how you tend to deal with drama based on your zodiac sign—and learn some things to keep in mind next time you get in a sticky situation.
Aries (March 21 – April 19): Head-On
Rams have no problem creating a war path, even if that means making matters worse. As one of the most confrontational signs of the zodiac, Aries ladies aren't afraid to talk about the nitty gritty details of the drama at hand, even if it's super uncomfortable for the other person involved. This ability to keep cool under pressure and tackle the hard issues will take you far—but consider the consequences before you set out for blood. Is it worth it?
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Loyalty
Known for their kind, reliable nature, a Taurus likes to navigate the drama waters as elegantly as possible. You're extremely loyal and make friends for a lifetime, so when drama floats your way, you always air on the side of friendship. The downside of this is you might feel the need to stand up for your gal even if she's wrong, but make sure you know all the facts before choosing a side.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Drama Queens
Someone pass you a crown, because you are the queen of the drama, dear Gemini! You're not only known to love drama, but you love to have friends that love drama, too, usually because it becomes a good story to tell. All the chaos oddly keeps you on your toes.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Emotional
Cancers can be reserved and tend to harbor their feelings from most. But your close friends know that you have many dramatic tendencies because you act with emotion, which causes you to make a way bigger deal out of a small situation. Confrontation isn't your thing, but unfortunately comes your way often because you unintentionally make the problem worse. When it comes to dealing with drama, you absolutely hate it, but somehow find yourself wrapped up in it more often than not. Start looking inward to see if you might be the root of some of the issues in play.
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): Drama Kings
The only sign that can upstage the Gemini drama queens are you, Leo! You're the king of the jungle and also the anointed king of the drama. You like all eyes on you, even if that means stirring the pot to keep things interesting. Your over-the-top energy lands you in the center of drama aplenty, but what's intriguing is that when it becomes malicious or character-defaming, you abort real quick. Leos have too much pride to let their name get tarnished, and will retract quickly to heal their wounds if the drama gets too intense.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sep. 22): Analytical and Critical
No offense Virgos, but you tend to be the last one a friend wants around in a dramatic situation. You're analytical by nature, and you assess all areas of the problem at hand. You also tend to be overly critical and have a hard time consoling people, especially when you've analyzed the situation and know someone else is in the wrong. A word of advice: Try not to be so harsh on the ones you love when they need support.
Libra (Sep. 23 – Oct. 22): The Mediator
Libras are all about balance, so when a problem arises, they step in to restore the peace. You tend to get along with everyone and are the unifying harmony in your friend group, which ultimately makes you the mediator when the drama erupts. You don't necessarily enjoy being in this position, but you do enjoy a bit of attention so this allows you to be in the conversation without engaging in the problem.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Drama-By-Choice
Even though Scorpios tend to be enigmatic and mysterious, you sure do love getting wrapped up in other people's drama. Scorpios are fully committed to the feelings that their friends endure, and you tend to even take on others' drama as your own. Becoming super involved not only can make matters worse, but it brings you into unnecessary drama that you otherwise wouldn't have been a part of. But secretly, you (kind of) love it.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): What Drama?
A Sagittarius is known for her happy-go-lucky nature, so when it comes to drama, you tend to run in the opposite direction. Sags don't deal with other people's emotions well, so it's no surprise that your friends don't come to you with their problems. You have enough difficulty dealing with your own drama, let alone other people's! If you can't seem to shake the situation, others call on you to break the ice and keep the convo light.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Anxious
Oh, Capricorn, you're probably ridden with anxiety just reading this article about drama. Drama can make you feel overly anxious and you tend to avoid friendships and events that lead to problematic situations. If you do happen to find yourself with a dramatic friend or issue that you care about, you try to level with them to show them that life is much more enjoyable when it's drama free.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): Intellect
Shy and quiet by nature, Aquarians tend to be smart and averse to drama. You have no room in your life for negativity, and you choose friendships carefully to ensure you have a peaceful environment. That said, when drama pops into your life, you use your quick wit and intelligence to calmly assess the situation. Fighting with you is no fun because chances are you know what to say to shut the other person down.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): The Creators
Sure, Pisces might be a bit of a recluse who enjoys spending time alone making art, but somehow you still find the time to stir up the drama. Pisces are known for being at the center of the problem. The drama just seems to find you, which is unfortunate because Pisces ladies do not handle altercations well. Instead of standing up for yourself, you just take it and get very emotional inside. When it comes to outside drama, you're wonderful at comforting your friends—perhaps because you know drama oh-so-well.
Enough of the drama, HERE is why you'll succeed in life based on your zodiac sign!
