We all have our own way of confronting issues in our lives, and according to astrology, your zodiac sign may be to blame for whether or not you decide to run away or confront your issues head on. 

You might tackle it head-on to eliminate any and all problems now and in the future. Maybe you avoid the problem altogether or blame it on someone else. Whatever your way of solving the problems in your life is, one thing is certain — your zodiac sign is involved in your decision-making process.

You’ve probably noticed that you seem to repeat the same approach to the issues in your life. Imagine your TV randomly turns off and won’t turn back on. What do you do? You call your boyfriend over to figure it out. He knows more about that stuff anyway.

Then, your mom decides to call and say she’s going to stop by your place tomorrow to say hi but your apartment is a mess! What do you do? You tell your roommate to clean up because you’ve cleaned the apartment a lot more than her and most of it belongs to her if you really think about it.

Do you see a pattern? (The answer is yes if you were wondering.) The pattern here is that you always throw the problem on someone else. You find it easier to let your boyfriend or roommate take care of the issue rather than taking care of it yourself.



Your personality traits are linked to your zodiac sign and, in turn, so are your habits and problem-solving ways. So take a look at how your zodiac sign handles issues so you can become the best problem-solver out there thanks to astrology.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Aries zodiac signs personal conflict confront problems

Aries is a very straight-forward fire sign. You know when I mentioned maybe you tackle issues head on? Yeah, that would be Aries.

This sign doesn't like to drag things out. Aries would rather confront whatever issue she is facing right then and there and get on with her life. There’s no point in dilly-dallying to an Aries.

Aries will face her problems as they come up and continue on to the next challenge life throws at her.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus zodiac signs personal conflict confront problems

This earth sign doesn't like to confront problems, especially if she caused them.

Taurus is very practical and will take full responsibility for creating a problem, but she’s also so stubborn that she’d rather pretend it doesn't exist and deal with it later. If you bring it up, a Taurus will change the subject or suddenly have somewhere to be.

Taurus can let her stubbornness get the best of her when issues need confronting.


Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini zodiac signs personal conflict confront problems

Geminis will ignore that crap until they can’t ignore it any longer.

Other air signs major in communication, but Geminis are too indecisive and inconsistent to really face an issue right then and there. Maybe she’ll deal with it tomorrow, maybe next month. You never really know with a Gemini.

But you can be sure a Gemini will pretend her problems don’t exist until they come back to bite her in the butt later.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer zodiac signs personal conflict confront problems

This water sign lives through her emotions. Cancers are easily influenced by the thoughts and opinions of those she values, so they’ll phone a friend when an issue arises.

Cancers will want their friends to weigh in on whatever problem comes up. They probably won’t come to their own decision on what to do on their own. Cancers would rather do what their amigos suggest instead.

Cancers really trust and value their friends, so it’s really not surprising they’d want their friends’ help when confronting an issue.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

Leo zodiac signs personal conflict confront problems

Leos are similar to Virgos when it comes to confronting issues, but different in the way that they love to tell everyone about how they handle the issues. As a fire sign, Leos are outgoing and positive, and they tend to like attention.

When faced with a problem, Leos will take it upon themselves to solve the problem and then post about it on Facebook and Twitter. It may be because they want to see the comments and praise they’ll receive. But it might simply be because they want everyone to know what they are capable of.

Leos like the spotlight, so you’ll probably know about their problems thanks to social media.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo zodiac signs personal conflict confront problems

Virgos love to make pros and cons lists when they have a problem to solve. As the most methodical Earth sign, Virgos try to predict each outcome and choose the best one.

Pros and cons lists are not new to Virgos — they use them for almost everything, and issues are no different. Virgos are quick to grab a pen and paper and find every possible positive and negative aspect of the decisions they make and issues that need confronting.

It could be a fairly long list, too, because Virgos are very thorough. Be patient, Virgos will tackle the issue once they feel confident their decision is best.

Libra (September 23 - October 22)

Libra zodiac signs personal conflict confront problems

Libras don’t like being alone and they don’t like confronting problems on their own, either. Air signs like Libra are big on sharing and communicating with others. In this case, Libras grab their closest friend to help take on their issues.

Libras will take their best friend’s ideas and merge them with their own to come up with a fair decision about how to go about solving their current problem.

It’s the best of both worlds to a Libra because two minds are better than one.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpio zodiac signs personal conflict confront problems

Scorpio is a very secretive, yet confident water sign that hardly ever trusts others with personal issues.

When a Scorpio has a problem to confront, she’ll take it on right away but won’t tell anyone about it. Scorpios don’t like sharing their business with others, especially if it involves something emotional or personal.

Don’t think that since a Scorpio always seems calm and problem-free she’s actually problem-free. She’s most likely tackling her demons behind closed doors and hiding it well.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius zodiac signs personal conflict confront problems

Even though Sagittarius is a dynamic fire sign, they tend to push their problems to the back of their minds and try to forget about them rather than confront them.

Sagittarius is a free, fun-loving sign that doesn't usually handle serious situations well. A Sagittarius doesn't want to ruin the fun so she’ll continue on with life like there is nothing wrong.

Sagittarius hopes that if she doesn't think about the problem it will go away. We all wish that was the case, really.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn zodiac signs personal conflict confront problems

Capricorns will call mom or dad when they have an issue to deal with. This earth sign has deep family roots and figures if anyone knows what to do, it will be her parents.

They are grounded in tradition and see family as the most reliable source to go to when a problem comes up. Capricorns know that their parents or grandparents have probably gone through a similar situation and had similar problems so they should know what to do.

It can be rough for Capricorns nowadays, though, since many new advances and changes weren’t around when our older relatives had the same problems.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius zodiac signs personal conflict confront problems

Communication is a very important factor in an Aquarius’ life so when she needs to confront an issue, she’ll go over it with a mentor or someone she sees as wise and trustworthy.

Aquarius knows her decisions and has faith in herself, but she wants input from someone who means a lot to her, someone she looks up to. Whether it’s a grandparent, neighbor, teacher, coworker, etc. she wants to share her thoughts and hear some feedback.

It’s not that an Aquarius is insecure; she just wants to tackle the issues in her life with the help of a wiser person.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces zodiac signs personal conflict confront problems

Pisces like to confront issues only after they have put a lot of thought into it. This water sign doesn't technically use emotions to solve problems, but needs time to think about it instead.

When a problem knocks on a Pisces’ door, they like to let it in for a few days. During that time, they’ll use plenty of alone time to think about how to react and deal with it before kicking it to the curb.

It’s important to a Pisces to use prior knowledge from books and experience to come up with a solution and take on whatever problem comes knocking.
