Virgo is a bit of a mixed bag, because while they're great problem-solvers, they also tend to get anxious in stressful situations. That being said, they'd much rather be in charge than let someone else take control.

"In a moment of crisis, Virgo will definitely step up to the plate and offer as much help as they possibly can, because their heart is always in the right place whenever something needs to be fixed," says Ryan Marquardt, astrologer and founder of Ryan's Astrology.

They are the sign of service after all, so you know they love being needed. Virgo is also incredibly organized and can analytically work through anything with ease.

Capricorn is an earth sign, meaning they're incredibly practical and grounded.

"When a crisis emerges, Capricorns become the steady rock, bringing a sense of stability and structure to the situation," says Rachel Clare, a professional astrologist at Mystic Sense.

They're ruled by Saturn, the planet of discipline and responsibility, and that gives them the ability to make calculated and logical decisions. Capricorns don't fear chaos, and will take their role seriously.

"They become the wise strategist, analyzing the situation and devising practical solutions that address both short-term and long-term needs," says Clare.

Aries is the first born of the zodiac, so you know they have the leadership qualities needed to face a crisis. Clare says they're like a knight in shining armor, ready to rescue the damsel in distress.

"Their proactive and assertive nature makes them the go-to sign when immediate action is required," she says. These rams face challenges head on, and will do whatever it takes to avoid—or get out of—disaster.

"Scorpios have a natural crisis consciousness that makes them highly capable of handling these matters," says Marquardt. They're intense and intimidating, which can work in their favor.

With Mars, the planet of war, as one of their rulers, they will always feel armed and ready in a crisis. And Mars helps them be as resourceful and methodical as possible, Marquardt tells Best Life.

These water signs are also known as the detectives of the zodiac. Scorpio loves uncovering clues and solving problems. So you know they'll be able to discover the details that will get them (and anyone else) out of trouble.

It might not seem like Gemini is ready for a crisis, but put them on the spot in a time of need, and they will be ready to solve all of your problems.

"Gemini is also a fast-moving mutable sign, so they have an agility that becomes their superpower during times of crisis," says Marquardt. They're great communicators, meaning they can see all sides of a situation and quickly think of helpful resolutions.

Gemini's energy in a difficult moment is unmatched. "They bring an appropriate amount of levity to the mix," says Marquardt, adding that they can multitask like no one else to get things done efficiently and effectively.

Libra is a cardinal sign, meaning they have a strong sense of leadership and a positive attitude. They're also represented by the scales, which symbolize justice and fairness. It's this combination that makes them the zodiac sign that's best in a crisis.

They're natural diplomats and expert communicators, so they'll be ready for whatever comes their way. "During a crisis, they act as the impartial judge, considering all sides of the situation and working towards a resolution that satisfies everyone involved," says Clare.

Thanks to their unwavering commitment to justice and equality, Librans will always fight for what they believe is right. And Clare says they won't shy away from making tough decisions if it means restoring balance and stability.
