These three zodiac signs are the least likely to cry

Whether they're going through a breakup, having a bad day, or watching a heartbreaking TikTok, some zodiac signs simply won't shed a tear. In fact, they are always confused by everyone around them who seems to burst into tears. It's easy for them to remain stoic most of the time.

Maybe it's because they don't have many tears to cry, or they prefer to save everything for later. Regardless, some zodiac signs don't cry as much as others, and there are a few reasons why.

For one, these signs are good at keeping their cool in situations that push others to the edge. Scorpios will burst into tears during emotional movies, Cancers will cry when stressed, Pisces will regularly sneak into the bathroom to cry at work, and others can stay calm by taking deep breaths.

At the same time, some zodiac signs are born to stay even without even trying. This boils down to their ruling planet, and the personality traits associated with their element. Water signs are known to be prone to tears, while fire signs tend to be agitated and emotional, while earth and air signs are more likely to have a dry eye.

Read on to find out if you're one of the three zodiac signs that astrologers say cries the least.

If you have a lot of Taurus energy in your birth chart, it may have been six months (or more) since you last cried your heart out. Whether you're dealing with friendship drama, work stress, or an argument with your partner, these won't leave you in tears.

Sure, you might get annoyed or angry, but as an earth sign, you tend to move through the day at a steady, even pace. Michelle Bell, founder of the astrology app Cosmic Fusion, says Taurus is good at taking things in stride, so you're rarely emotionally affected by life's ups and downs. "They're very down to earth, very proud and don't show vulnerability," she told Busy. "They also have a strong ability to manage pressure and stress."

After all, Taurus is represented by the stubborn bull, so even if you really want to cry, you're the best at holding it in until the time is right. For example, instead of crying at work, you might go for a walk or take a few deep breaths so that the urge goes away. Ultimately, though, you like to take a day and let it all out at once.

As an Aquarius, you're happy to live in your own little world, which usually means you don't shed tears as often as others. In fact, moments that bring joy to others, like a sweet or sentimental movie, might even make you laugh.

"Aquarians march to the beat of their own drum and are very unconventional," says Bell, so you're more likely to cringe or roll your eyes.

As an air sign, you can also be a bit emotionally distant, Bell says, meaning you approach life with an analytical mind rather than a reactive one. You don't cry because something is beautiful or touching, or because you're stressed or troubled, but you occasionally shed tears when you're sad because it's more meaningful.

Capricorn tops the list and is one of the least emotional zodiac signs. According to Bell, this earth sign tends to approach life in a practical and rational manner rather than an emotional one. While some people cry to cope with stress or misfortune—and, hey, there’s nothing wrong with that—you tend to go into repair mode.

Flat tire? The train is late? Instead of falling apart, you piece together all the other ways to get to where you need to be. Plus Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, the planet associated with tasks and responsibilities, which means you'll naturally lead people through difficult situations.

You often feel like you don't have enough time in the day to cry, but you're totally okay with that. However, if you feel like something is brewing, then you can put on a sad movie and see if it makes some people cry.
