Have you ever started talking to someone, and it feels like they aren’t giving off the same energy as you are? Or worse, it feels like the person isn’t the least bit interested?
Give or take, the person is most likely just manifesting a subtle characteristic of their zodiac sign. The person might, in fact, be Aries–the extroverted fire sign.
Aries born are naturally not the quiet type, neither is the sign among the most introverted zodiacs. Bold, brash, confident, and energetic, Aries have a way of being noticed even when they are trying to go unnoticed.
So, why do Aries sometimes get so quiet?
When Arians get quiet, it’s usually because they are feeling overwhelmed. Or they may simply be introspective by nature and prefer to spend time alone. There are times when Aries need some time to recharge after exerting a lot of energy or trying to avoid conflict.
Now let’s dive deeper, exploring the nuances of why Aries get so quiet.
Why Do Aries Get So Quiet?
The following are some of the reasons why Aries get so quiet:
To Avoid Relationship Drama
Arians are often passion driven and career-focused, shouldering a lot of responsibility that carries over to the relationship. They set high bars for themselves and those around them, which is oftentimes a recipe for conflict.
So, when they disagree with someone, especially their partner, they feel like they’ve failed because it became too heated, and they lost control of the situation; As a result, they withdraw from the situation for a while and tend to remain silent to let things cool down and prevent further confrontation.
A Brewing Rage
As a fire sign, Arians are known for being blunt and hotheaded. But some things pull their strings more than others. Phrases like “why are you blunt,” “why are you so impulsive,” “you have anger issues,” and “stop being childish” attack their personality and can lead to complications in your relationship with them.
In this case, their quietness is usually a precursor to a full outburst, leaving smoke and ashes behind once the fire sign is done venting. On the bright side, their anger subsides quickly–only after their rage.
An Introverted Arian
It’s pretty ironic for a fire sign and the bold leader of the zodiac to be naturally quiet, but what can we say? Arians come in all forms and shapes, including quiet ones. While some Arians are outspoken about their introverted nature, others keep it to themselves.
Introverted Arians tend to have social anxiety and social awkwardness and crave time to reflect on things going on around them and how they feel about them.
Although these Arians might be introverted, they also do a bunch of things extroverted Arians do: speaking their mind, talking nonstop about something they are very passionate about, and speaking out loud to themselves. More often than not, Arians are people whose minds are always going fast.
How To Deal With an Aries Who Is Acting Strangely Quiet
Below are some ways to handle the quietness of an Aries.
Give Them Space
You must respect the time Arians take to recoup and process how they feel because it is crucial to their well-being.
They will know you care about them and that you are confident and mature in your relationship with them if you respect their feelings without making things about you or demanding their attention.
You also avoid pushing them away completely when you give them space. They’ll warm up to you and become their fiery selves once they’ve had the desired amount of alone time.
Act Confident and Apologize if Necessary
Arians hate weakness, so make sure you aren’t begging for attention. If you’ve done something wrong to make them ignore you, apologize confidently and firmly. Aries’s anger is brief, and they only hold grudges when they don’t get an apology.
It’s important to save face here and act as confident as possible even if you don’t feel the part.
Discuss the Problem
Communication is vital to clear the air and resolve any issue. After giving an Arian who is acting eerily quiet the needed space, it’s time to discuss. Find out what’s wrong while being empathetic to his feelings. If you feel you’ve been mistreated, now’s the time to discuss it–and do so while acting firmly.
Arians are generally known for being fiery and erupting with passion. They are outgoing, loud, extroverted, confident, and bold.
However, this is not always the case as they are not immune to getting overwhelmed, and they aren’t all the same. Some Arians are naturally introverted, while others tend to be quiet depending on what they are going through.
When Arians feel like everything is getting too much, they tend to retreat to clear their head and process everything. Once they’ve had time to do this, they’ll usually come out of their shell and be their usual selves again.
Therefore, whatever the reason, it’s important to remember that Arians are still the same passionate individuals they always were, even when they’re quiet.
