How To Talk To Anyone, Per Astrology © Provided by NewsCred How To Talk To Anyone, Per Astrology

Even the chattiest zodiac signs have been in a situation where they just didn't know how to start a conversation with someone.

Maybe you're having trouble undoing the double knots in your tongue when you're around someone you have a crush on.

Maybe you just don't know how to strike up a conversation with someone you look up to. Maybe you just really suck at knowing what to say in any situation.

The point is, we've all been there. No zodiac sign is immune to having their mind go totally blank on them.

Of course, each astrology sign is able to regain their confidence and say something meaningful to the person they really want to talk to. When you think too much about what to say, almost everything sounds like a lame suggestion.

Do you talk about the weather? Should you ask them how they're doing? Is that a weird thing to ask when you've been religiously stalking them on Instagram for the past few months, so you kind of already know what's going on in their life?

Yeah, maybe you should relax a bit. While you want to open with something meaningful (of course), sometimes the best course of action is to start with small talk. This is an especially good idea if you don't know the person very well yet.

The last thing you want to do is to dive into something super serious before even introducing yourself, which is bound to backfire on you.

Instead, introducing yourself, asking them about themselves, and bonding over shared interests is a good starting point and can get rid of some of the awkwardness.

When first initiating a conversation, the most important thing to remember is that you want to show that you are a friendly, approachable person. After that, you can really let your personality out. Once, I was really into this guy who was a friend of a friend.

I really wanted to have a conversation with him (and maybe something more), but every single time I was around him, I literally could not speak.

It wasn't even that I stuttered around him or kept talking about the weather like I was a weatherman – I could not speak to save my life.

I was nervous and tongue-tied to the point that my mouth felt like sandpaper. Naturally, that relationship (or friendship) never went anywhere, but having your mind go completely blank like that is an experience I can't even describe.

Now, I know that the things I open with don't have to be the wittiest or smartest things I've ever thought of but rather just ways to break the ice.

I also know that I could have used a wing-woman to help me out, but years later, it doesn't seem important enough anymore to chastise my friend for not having my back on that one.

Whether you have a specific person in mind you'd like to chat up, or you just want to brush up on your conversation skills, keep reading for exactly how to start a conversation, based on your horoscope sign.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

You often dominate conversation, Aries, so trying to figure out what to say when talking to someone else isn't too hard for you. Oftentimes, you just go with the flow of the conversation, but you DO also like when there's actually a point to whatever the other person is saying.

You have a lot on your plate! You don't need to have a conversation that goes nowhere when you could be checking things off your to-do list.

If you're looking for ways to start a conversation with someone – during times when you actually do want to talk – start by talking about whatever you're currently working on.

You have a way of making pretty much anything seem exciting, so even though you might just be talking about boring work stuff, you'll at least have a starting point before you get into office drama or a side project you've started.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

You can be shy when you're not in a familiar environment, Taurus, so making conversation with someone new can be hard for you at first. The best piece of advice I can give you is to take your time before jumping into a convo, whether it's with one person or a lot of people.

Talking just for the sake of talking will only make you more uncomfortable, so you're better off listening until you have something to say.

When you do want to start a conversation with someone, talk about your thoughts on something. You can be a very factual person, so talking about your feelings isn't always easy.

Ask the other person what they thought about a new movie that just came out, the results of the last hockey game, or what they think about those home-delivery cooking services. Once you get the conversation started, you'll get more comfortable talking.

Talking is definitely your bag, Gemini, which means you rarely have trouble starting a conversation or deciding on a topic to talk about. You talk a lot and you talk fast, and anyone who engages you in conversation knows that they don't have to say much for you to keep things flowing.

You're also amazing at small talk, trivia, icebreakers, stories – everything. You just like expressing yourself through words.

Unlike most of the other zodiac signs, you're able to strike up a convo very easily. When you want to start a conversation with someone, you tend to
