Zodiac Signs Who Confront Conflict Vs. Those That Avoid It At All Costs

Fight or flight. It’s an instinct we all have when conflict arises. Do you stay and duke it out?

Or, do you run away as fast as possible? Personally I’m somewhere in the middle. Sometimes I’ll fight, but if it’s not worth it then I’ll walk away. But I’m also a little competitive and stubborn, so I don’t always walk away when I should.

Of course, there are plenty of people more inclined to fight. Just look at MMA fighters or your average street thug. They’re the type that never wants to back down. Maybe it’s a matter of pride or maybe they just want a fight, but either way they’re not afraid to go at it. That doesn’t mean they’re strictly violent people, they just are more aggressive and assertive.

And then you have flight. These are the people that would rather avoid confrontation completely than have anything to do with it.

If there’s an argument, you’ll be more likely to give in rather than push back, though you’d prefer if there wasn’t an argument at all. Sometimes it’s considered cowardly, but if fighting isn’t your thing, what else are you supposed to do?

Let’s make one thing clear- there’s nothing wrong with being on either the fight side or the flight side, as long as it’s not to an extreme. Like, don’t go looking for a fight, but don’t hide from even the most minor inconvenience either. It’s good to find a balance. Just remember its okay to avoid conflict, but don’t be a pushover either.

But, that’s a topic for another time. When it comes to astrology, some traits are already (partially) predetermined for you.

One of those traits, in particular, is the fight or flight instinct.

So whether you’re the fiery type or shy, here’s what your zodiac sign says about you and conflict.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)

Congratulations Scorpios, you guys are the most-likely zodiac to pick a fight! Your passion is a good thing, but it can get you in trouble too. Add that with a distrusting and violent personality with occasional stubbornness and you get the words (and possibly fists) flying.

ARIES (March 21 – April 19)

Short-tempered, impatient, aggressive. All words to describe an Aries and an argument-prone person. It’s not that you don’t have good qualities, it’s just that such a strong personality and these traits makes for a dangerous combination.

LEO (July 23 – August 22)

You Leos might be a little confused as to why you rank third. Your leading and loving personality bring people together right? In a way it does, but what causes problems is your desire to be treated like the center of the universe and for everyone to love you. That desire can cause more animosity than you realize.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)

As an Aquarius, you only get loud for what you want. Fighting for causes is great, but not everyone will agree with you. And while no one cares for people disagreeing with them, you have a strong penchant for disagreement, which will spark debate after debate.

CANCER (June 21 – July 22)

Being an emotional and sensitive bunch, Cancers are already prone to lashing out more than others. Throw in a persuasive and sometimes manipulative nature and suddenly you’re the one people want to avoid. But when there is confrontation, things can get nasty.

CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)

While being considered a “master of self-control,” the character flaw of Capricorns is being a know-it-all and condescending. That will always rub people the wrong way. And then you get annoyed at everything at one time or another. Put it together and without realizing it, you’ve been asking for a fight.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)

Overall a Sagittarius isn’t going to cause a whole lot of conflict. However, you can be very impatient and forget to put on the filter, which can make people mad at you. But, your sense of humor can quickly diffuse the situation.

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)

Your hardworking attitude and attention to detail serve you well and you get through life without much difficulty. But, your overly critical mindset for both you and others can cause some irritation. You’re also not a fan of people being rude, so it can turn into a vicious cycle. Be wary.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)

A Taurus to me is someone that’s very sturdy and consistent. Little can change them, but that will also hurt them. Some stubbornness is fine, but a complete unwillingness to change is another story. If you unstick yourself a little, you’ll be surprised at how much conflict you avoid.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)

Geminis are an easy group of people to get along with. You love people and having fun and you’ll also lend an ear when needed. However, your indecisiveness can lead to slight tension. But don’t worry, everyone has trouble deciding on things all the time, so it’s not a major issue.

PISCES (February 19 – March 20)

Pisces tend to get along with a lot of people and are more gentle souls. Due to a somewhat delicate nature though, conflict is far from your strong suit. You’re probably more likely to just agree with someone even if you really don’t.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)

Libras are all about harmony and will avoid confrontation at all costs. Getting along is your thing and you’d love it if the world around you remained peaceful forever. But, on the rare occasion you do get into an argument, you tend to hang onto it for awhile.
