Some people aren’t afraid to say what it’s like—or at least what they think it is. They don’t keep anything bottled up and aren’t opposed to expressing (sometimes controversial) opinions. If you’ve ever wondered why your boss is never diplomatic in his criticism or why your uncle always starts political fights at the Thanksgiving table, astrology may offer some answers. Read on to discover the most opinionated zodiac signs, from the slightly self-important to the most assertive.

Virgos generally take a strong stance and believe that everyone else should agree with them. Your opinions can vary on everything from what you’re wearing, where you live, to who you should date, says Sacred Arts astrologer for Soulful Seekers Briana Saussy. The Virgo in your life, whether a family member or significant other, will often “point out the pros and cons and then let you know what their opinion is.” Fortunately, this analytical sign is polite, so they don’t always share their judgments. But once you start them, they won’t hold back.
Capricorns believe they are the best at everything (and they are usually right). This could mean they are overconfident in the office or think they are the most stylish person in their group of friends. Because they are so stubborn, Saussy warns that they “fall into the trap of judging by appearances, but they are also willing to learn and revise their stance when they get new or better information.” Caps are open to new ideas and enjoy stimulating conversations that make them rethink their own ideas, which makes them interesting friends and colleagues.

People with Gemini friends know how much they love to talk. This often means sharing stories, but it also leads to a lot of reflection. According to Saussy, these extroverted people are chatty, thoughtful and smart. “Not only do they have a lot of opinions, they get to them quickly, change just as quickly, and are always happy to share them with anyone around, whether they’re interested or not,” says Saussy. Geminis aren’t shy about expressing their opinions, but they can easily change their minds.
Want to disprove an Aquarius? Unfortunately, you won’t get very far. The fixed air sign has strong and strident opinions about specific areas of life. Unlike other signs, an Aquarius is unlikely to change his mind, even after a heated debate. Saussy says her theories “tend to be firm and, once made, are difficult to undo.”
This air sign also likes to give talks on their favorite concepts, which are usually related to social causes they are deeply invested in. “Aquarius may not care much about how much money someone makes, but they definitely care about what kinds of social justice are being promoted and which ones can be ignored,” says Saussy. If you have an Aquarius family member, chances are you bit your tongue listening to their many intense opinions over dinner.

Aries is known for being bold and courageous. Because they are so self-confident, they “have definite ideas about how things should be,” says Saussy. This sometimes arrogant and always self-confident sign wants to ensure that their ideas are set in motion so that they continue to express their notions until they are realized. Aries tend to be extremely vocal and refuse to be silenced.
Libras are always fair, so they look at all sides of a story before making up their minds. But because they can see situations from all angles, “they can have a lot of different opinions about the same scenario,” says Saussy. She adds that Libras have “an affinity not only with sweet Venus, but also with severe Saturn”, which makes them surprisingly critical. “Your friends may not know why Libra tends to be very low-key, but there are a lot of salty opinions underneath that smooth facade,” says Saussy. While Libras can often be discreet with how they present their ideas, they will always share their point of view.
