Is it really possible for a human being to become emotionally empty? We have all watched people get cold or shut down, but always assumed that this shutdown was the result of an emotional overload that led to total breakdown, not simply the influence of astrology.
This breakdown cannot last, so the person experiencing it must adjust their emotions so that they can continue to live reasonably normal again. For the emotionless zodiac signs, however, a positive horoscope is not enough to lead them out of the darkness.
When we feel pain, we need relief – sometimes immediately or we lose our minds. One way people deal with it – and mostly subconsciously – is to turn it off. When we switch off, we transform into beings who feel less because “feelings” are what hurts us.
We empty all emotions out of ourselves so that we can survive the pain we feel: if it becomes too much, it becomes uncontrollable and to regain control, we teach ourselves to become cold and empty … hollow inside.
Some of us are better equipped to switch off than others. Here are the top 6 of the numb zodiac signs that successfully reach the goal of emotional emptiness in an emergency.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
The ibex looks stoic and robust and will mislead you. When he feels emotionally tested, he turns off within milliseconds, giving others around him the impression that he has been the victim of a lobotomy and has been made a hollow nothing.
Capricorns cannot tolerate torture and in order to deal with it, they have become masters of emotional emptiness.
2. Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
They went through a lot, the pain was great, and they learned a thing or two about how to use it – they just switch off. Aquarius can sometimes seem emotionally dead, which can be unsettling for close friends and family.
Aquarians are often moody, but in reality they are concerned with self-protection. They’re not really dead inside, they just want you to think that.
3rd Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
For the scorpion, already cold by nature, it doesn’t take much to flip the switch to emotional emptiness.
The scorpion is often seen as the sign that is most likely to make you emotionally dead in an emergency – but it takes even less than we think for it to say goodbye to the spirit world. The scorpion switches off its emotions at least 20 times a day – and this acts on us as if it were frozen to the core.
4th Aries (March 21 – April 19)
If you are as stubborn as Aries, you have to maintain this stubborn attitude and know when to show the world that you are dead inside. Aries are inherently emotionally unstable – and this type of volatility can either explode 24 hours a day or be kept in check and alleviated by the practice of emotional emptiness.
It is hard work to maintain the “I’m always right” attitude and sometimes the ram has to switch to “empty” to make it through the next day.
5th bull (April 20 – May 20)
The bull is already close enough on the verge of madness and so absolutely not at all ready to deal with your crap that he has already mentally left the arena, only to get away from you. When the bull turns off, he takes tools – drugs, alcohol, whatever.
The bull takes its shutdown deadly serious, and if you try to reach it while it is emotionally empty, you will literally run its head against a wall. Good luck with it, you jerk!
6th twin (May 21 – June 20)
Twins have a hard time! Especially with all these negligent, crazy emotions floating around inside, which is why the “other side” of the twin usually intervenes and saves the day when things get too intimate and soft.
The vulnerable twin loves all these feelings … until all these feelings become all this pain – and then it says goodbye, emotional facade, and hello, frost-covered tundra of emptiness.
