Everyone needs a few air signs in their lives. They’re unique individuals that have their own outlook, and they’re never afraid to be themselves. It’s inspiring and uplifting, and for air signs, being inauthentic is never an option. But if you’re friends with a Gemini, Libra, or Aquarius, you know there are some lines that just can’t be crossed. Here are five things you should never say to an air sign:
- “Aren’t you happy where you are?”
Air signs have an undeniable desire to explore-especially Aquarius! They love adventure, and they love learning-so being immersed in a new culture is one of their favorite ways to learn. If they want to travel, sorry, but you just can’t stop them. They’re going to book that flight no matter what you say.
- “This seems like a waste of money.”
Now, don’t get the idea that air signs are frivolous big spenders, because that’s not the case at all. But when they see something unique that they like, they have to have it. You might think it looks weird or silly, but trust an air sign-they have good taste, especially Libras! Don’t try to tell an air sign how to spend their money. They know what they like, and they’re willing to invest in it.
- “Are you going to have a good time if we go out?”
Air signs can be very social-there’s no denying that. But they also need time to themselves. They’re basically ambiverts-people who are simultaneously introverted and extroverted. Many people feel this way to an extent, but air signs fit this description perfectly! They love to meet new people, have interesting conversations, and even dance the night away with a crowd of strangers. But they also need a lot of time to recharge after all that socializing, and they can’t always predict when they’ll need time alone.
- “You’ve been acting different lately-is something wrong?”
First of all, this one comes with an extra warning tag. Don’t say this to a Gemini, because that conversation will go straight downhill. Air signs aren’t trying to be two faced, they’re just multifaceted individuals who express different aspects of their personality at different times. To some people, this may come off as fake, but they’re honestly just being real-they can’t easily be put in boxes, and they certainly cannot satisfy everyone, so they don’t even bother to try.
- “This doesn’t seem like it’s going to work.”
Air signs are innovative, and when they have a problem, they might end up going with a solution that seems totally off the wall. They trust their instincts, and they don’t care if people think that what they’re trying is a little insane. They’re going to go ahead and do it anyway. So don’t discourage their plans, because they’re most likely still going to follow through. Even if it’s something you think will go badly, you have to let them figure that out for themselves-you can’t be the one to teach them.
