I believe these 3 zodiac signs can help you make a comeback

Creating the perfect comeback takes a lot of effort. You have to be resourceful, you have to think fast, and you have to be willing to cast a little shadow. For some signs, these characteristics are given to them by the stars, so you know they will always inspire the greatest passions in the world.

According to astrologer Stina Garbis, the signs that are most reversible tend to have these in common. They have intelligence, they have sass, they have the ability to think quickly, but they applaud for completely different reasons.

Some zodiac signs will make a comeback and try to maintain their status. If they think someone is being rude, they won't hesitate to reciprocate the same energy with a few choice phrases. At the same time, some people are great at comebacks because it's the perfect excuse to make others laugh. They stock up on quips like a five-minute comedy and are always looking for excuses to share their most acerbic observations.

Then there are those racing to rescue those they care about. Their fight back is to protect the person being bullied, so they will use witty retorts to stop the bully. According to Gabis, these motivating factors stem from a sign's ruling planet, as well as their elements, which can determine their intelligence and sass.

Read on below to learn about the three zodiac signs that make the best comebacks.

Gemini (May 21 to June 20)

As an air sign ruled by communication planet Mercury, Gemini naturally has a treasure trove of stylish comebacks. They are quick thinkers and very smart, so they always seem to have the perfect response to sarcastic remarks and rude comments, Garbis said.

Whether they're defending themselves, a friend, or simply fighting back at someone who thinks they're funny, you'll never find a Gemini at a loss for words.

When tensions arise, they are always the first to speak up. Gemini has the ability to defuse sticky or tricky situations with well-timed witticisms.

Leo (July 23-August 22)

You can always count on a Leo to have the wittiest quips. "They are sassy and witty and know what to say in any situation," Gabis said. This is partly down to the fact that they are ruled by a scorching sun.

Plus they're a fire sign, which means Leos will be quick to stand up for themselves. If someone is rude or disrespectful, they will immediately blame it on their position with a barrage of counterattacks.

They are also not afraid of confrontation, which is crucial when you speak out. "They can go back and forth with someone for years," Garbis said, and never run out of things to say.

Leo's goal is not only to win an argument, but to make everyone around him laugh in the process.

If you're arguing with someone and don't know what to say, hand your phone to your loyal Scorpio best friend and watch them instantly come up with a perfectly poignant response.

According to Gabis, Scorpios are ruled by Pluto, the planet of secrets and hidden meanings, so they have an innate ability to see someone to their core. Combined with their stinging scorpion tails, this means they can zero in on a person's deepest insecurities and literally make a comeback.

While they won't be that quick to stand up for themselves - they are, after all, a sensitive Water sign - they have plenty of counter-attacks in reserve, ready to fight back should someone push them over the edge.
