Sagittarius hates sitting still, let alone staying in one place for too long. Their adventurous nature and spiritual vibe can prevent them from getting attached to anyone or anything. Tara Bennet, astrologer and spiritual coach at Mediumchat, says that they're so wrapped up in their own lives that they place little importance on other things.

These folks are mutable signs, meaning they are flexible, but are also constantly changing their minds and moving on to the next big thing. While their life experiences are out there and fun, they don't always have time for small talk or pleasantries.

Sagittarians are always aiming for something just out of reach, Rachel Clare, a professional astrologist at Mystic Sense tells Best Life. "They're constantly striving for greater heights and bigger goals, which can make them seem distant and unattainable."

Cancer's reserved nature can make them appear aloof. They are caring and love being there for others, but "until they get to know someone, these crabs like to hide under their shells," Bennet says.

Their ruling planet, the Moon, makes them moody and introspective. It takes time for them to open themselves up to other people, and they can get defensive and retreat quickly if things don't go the way they were planning.

They'll definitely keep their distance at first, but 0nce these water signs warm up to you, they'll be willing to do whatever you need.

Known for their innovative ideas and forward-thinking mindset, Aquarius is in their own little world most of the time. You also won't find them adhering to social norms or expectations. This uniqueness sometimes makes them seem detached from others and their surroundings.

They value independence and individuality. They never stay in the present moment for too long and find it hard to engage in conversations that don't propel them forward.

"In addition to this, the symbol for Aquarius is the Water Bearer, which can be interpreted as carrying the ideas and insights of the collective consciousness," Clare says. "This can sometimes make Aquarians appear more focused on the bigger picture than on individual relationships or connections."

Taurus is very stuck in their ways. They thrive on having routines and do not like their methods to be messed with. Conforming isn't their style and Bennet says they'll give you the cold shoulder if you try and get them to change.

They are a fixed sign, as well as an earth sign, and are very grounded people. "Taurians are known for their steadfastness and may resist change or new experiences, making it hard to connect with them on a deeper level," Clare says.

While they do seem removed most of the time, you just have to dig a little deeper if you want to see their softer side.

Capricorn is cautious when it comes to putting their emotions on display. They may not open up right away and exude a "stay away from me" vibe, Clare tells Best Life.

It doesn't mean they don't feel things, but they do tend to turn themselves inward more often than not. "Also, as they are ruled by industrious Saturn, Capricorns have a deep respect for tradition and structure, which can make them resistant to change," Clare says.

They like sticking with what they know and don't like to hedge too far out of their comfort zone. You can approach them, but you may want to let them come to you instead.

Icy and mysterious Scorpio is definitely the most aloof zodiac sign. Even though these water signs are intense feelers, they seem standoffish at first. It takes a lot for them to shake off that frost and welcome people into their life. Their closed-off persona isn't everyone's cup of tea, so if you get to know them deeply, you might be one of the lucky few.

Scorpios are also very secretive and don't let anyone know what they're thinking or feeling unless it's absolutely necessary.
