Conflict resolution is a skill some of us aren’t naturally born with, though it’s still a valuable asset to have going through life.
Can you negotiate to a peaceful outcome? Can you still have fruitful relationships with people you run into disagreement with?
Conflicts will arise but when we neglect to confront them head on they only get worse. What makes us disagree may differ from one person to the next, but did you know that your astrological sign may actually be an unsuspecting factor in how you deal with conflicts in your life?
For some people, their instinct is to simply ignore a problem and hope that it disappears without intervention or some naturally tackle the issue to a solution.
So, what importance does your zodiac sign have in conflict resolution? Here is a breakdown of each sign.
While reading this you may notice behavioral trends within yourself or you might be able to observe patterns of behavior in others just based on the zodiac sign!
ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
Less is more with Aries. These people don’t like to beat about the bush and aren’t keen on sitting down talking something through for long periods of time. An Aries person would be content with a firm half an hour of discussion to resolve any problem. They aren’t stubborn or unwilling, they just know the longer something goes on for, the more misunderstandings arise.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
This is the last person you would want to have in an argumentative scenario. However, Taurus individuals prefer to take time out to calm down before discussion to avoid getting too angry and frustrated. They feel the emotions intensely but luckily they’re aware of the risk of escalating an argument if they’re not emotionally grounded.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
You guys are the shining examples of conflict resolutions. A Gemini can be outspoken, which of course can cause conflicts, but their willingness to do so honestly and offer clarity forms part of why they’re naturally skillful in sorting matters out.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
You prefer to avoid harboring grudges, holding onto anger or grief, as you know all too well that these just eat away inside of you. So, naturally you’re going to face issues head on and charge your through any obstacles that stand in your way of communicating your truth.
LEO (July 23 – August 22)
Similar to Cancers, you’ve got the communication skills to negotiate your way to peace as you take responsibility for every word you say. You are a master of catering towards the other persons feelings in order to help the other progress through the conflict too, therefore you are able to manifest a positive outcome.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
Virgos foster an excellent strategy in resolving difficulties in relationships. Rather than being obstinate towards their counterpart, a Virgo would welcome their input of ideas, thoughts and opinions which provide a two-way communication. A Virgo can turn around a challenging and seemingly hopeless conflict into a peaceful outcome by working together with the other person. It can be a win-win situation when you’re dealing with Virgo.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
If you’re a Libra, or dealing with a Libra, you’ll prefer an equal and balanced method where you’ll give as much time to the other person as their willing to give you theirs. Each will have their opportunity to lay down their thoughts and concerns. Libra’s will be more open to what their partner has to say.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
A Scorpio can react with intensity whether that be with anger or fear. However, this doesn’t mean they burst into conflict without first thinking things through. A certain wisdom runs deep with Scorpios as they will turn inwards to discover what is causing their pain to engineer a solution that works for them and their partner.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
If you find yourself caught in an argument with a Sagittarius, or you are one, then you’ll certainly run into some challenges as it’s not their forte to tackle a problem straight away. However, they have full knowledge that it’s better to confront a problem sooner rather than later. Thankfully, you Sagittarians are open-minded enough to hear a new perspective which is a wonderful step towards a peaceful outcome.
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorns have the wisdom never allow a situation to take the magic away from a relationship. They have no problem in letting go of their need to be “right” as this will likely sabotage their relationship. Instead the resolve the issue to satisfy the other person more than them.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
You guys will have a clear-cut approach to conflicts. You know the pitfalls of being too defensive or provoking a defense reaction from your partner, instead you by pass the smoke and mirrors and are upfront about your thoughts and feelings.
PISCES (February 19 – March 20)
The first thing a Piscean would do, is straight away let their partner understand where they’re coming from. They put emotion at the forefront of the communication as they seek to reason with their partner by voicing their affection and gratitude for their partner. They’re more inclined to create a suitable environment for a discussion, when both are ready and willing to solve an issue.
Overall, no matter what your zodiac sign tells you, to successfully resolve a conflict we’re always required to place ourselves in the shoes of another person rather than chasing our need to win or be “right” in the argument.
