HOROSCOPE SIGNS: How You Handle Awkward Situations

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Underneath all that bravery and energy, there's still some awkwardness in you.

In an awkward situation, Aries will suddenly become very conscious of their body and won't know what to do with it, so they'll get very fidgety and all their nervous tics will show. Their throat will become very dry and they'll have trouble speaking as well.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

You know how to handle an awkward situation but you definitely don’t enjoy them. Taurus knows how to keep their voice even, take slow breaths, and try to change the subject in the chillest way possible.

They know how to stay cool and stoic on the outside.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Handling awkward situations isn’t on the easy list for you and that’s because it takes you back to feeling just the way they did in middle school and that kinda freaks you out.

Geminis also tend to get angry at themselves for their inability to deal with an uncomfortable situation, and then they may get sad for feeling embarrassed and ashamed.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

If this sign finds themselves in an awkward situation, they’ll try to draw attention away from themselves, usually by bringing in a family member or friend in.

Later on, they’ll go over it in their head and try to figure out how to avoid situations like that in the future.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

This sign has a talent for coming out of, awkward situations and looking like a star. They'll make a joke or do something that takes the attention off of the awkwardness and onto them.

They may even change the awkward situation into a teachable moment.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

This sign thinks that the best way to alleviate awkwardness is to just admit it. Sometimes this works and sometimes it just makes everything even more awkward.

The good thing about Virgos and their awkwardness is that they don't let it stop them from doing anything.They recognize that awkward situations are bound to happen.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Awkward situations make this sign feel very uncomfortable. If a Libra is in an uncomfortable situation their first instinct is to leave, no matter what. They’d rather remove themselves than stay in a torturous place.

Libras have a reputation for being charming, kind, and socially pleasing, so they're not going to jeopardize that by being in an awkward position.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

No one knows how to keep themselves in check better than this sign. They may be dying of embarrassment but they're not gonna let it show.

If they're in an awkward situation, Scorpios are going to play it cool and mysterious, just like they do most of the time.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

This sign tends to be extremely optimistic, so they may not see an awkward situation for what it is…. they may see it, as a means to get to know someone beyond what they want the world to see, or they may see it as an opportunity for breaking the ice.

To a Sagittarius, we’re all humans and embarrassment happens.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Try to avoid awkwardness but somehow still manage to find themselves in them.

Capricorns try to strategize before a potentially embarrassing situation, but once they're in the thick of it, it never goes smoothly.

But they are great during emergencies or in tough negotiations, but not awkward situations.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

This sign has a hard time dealing with awkward situations. They try to hold back their frustration but it usually boils up to the surface anyway, making situations even more awkward.

You’ll see their face get red, clenching and unclenching their jaws, and their sarcastic comments come out. Aquarians will definitely react in an unpredictable and sometimes inappropriate way.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces are often in an awkward state so they're surprisingly good at handling their own awkwardness or an awkward situation. They may call attention to the awkwardness and make a joke about it, or they may try to distract people.

One positive is that since Pisces has a big imagination, they’re able to think outside the box and come up with something unexpected to take everyone's mind off the uncomfortable atmosphere.
