How do you react when someone tells you "no"?

The word "no" has a lot of power. Remember when you were a small child and the power you felt by saying it constantly? It can become more difficult as we get older to say that tiny little word, but when you do say it, you still feel the power that you once did. 

Saying "no" can protect us, and it can help us to center in on what it is that we really like or want to do. "No" lets us stand up for ourselves but it's not always the popular answer as it can upset people and get us into trouble. If someone asks you if you studied for a test or if you mailed in your taxes, "no" can lead to negative complications. Sometimes it's just easier to say "Yes."

We might be comfortable with saying "no," but not so with being told "no." For some people, just hearing "no" enrages them. They may hear "no" but do what they want anyway, or they can try to pry a "yes" out of the person they're asking.

What does hearing a "no" make you feel?

"No" is often interpreted as being rejected or being denied, but most of the time it's really not that personal. Being told "no" can be about safety, not being right for the job, or an indication that things have come to a natural conclusion.  

"No" doesn't have to be a negative word or response; it can pave the way for a "yes." The more no's you get, the more likely it is that you'll get a yes. Everybody has their own way of handling a "no," and of course, our zodiac signs influence that. Find out what happens when the signs are told "no."
