Conflict Resolution

The human condition requires adjustment and conflict resolution.

ARIES is the most proactive sign of initiative and creativity, offering solutions never considered before. It may need to think before acting or speaking.

TAURUS has the patience to persevere with efforts at peaceful coexistence, offering art, music or money to manifest improvements.

GEMINI, ruled by Mercury, planet of communication and diversity, has the gift of objectively honoring the validity of other’s viewpoints, negotiating settlements amenable to all concerned.

CANCER, ruled by the Moon, luminary of emotions, is caring, subjective rather than objective, or universalized in perspective. Right or wrong, it puts family and nation first, a consummate patriot.

LEO, ruled by the Sun, luminary of personal will, believes that love and self-worth answer most difficulties. It cultivates accomplishment in sports and performing arts.

VIRGO, ruled by mental Mercury, has precise analytical abilities to determine standards of acceptable behavior or to ascertain causes of problems. If judgmental, it contracts, silently withholding support when offended.

LIBRA, ruled by civilized Venus, wants life to be fair and ethical, with equal opportunity for all. It will try to fulfill others’ needs, even at the expense of its own.

SCORPIO, ruled by Pluto, planet of transformation, would literally die for its beliefs, a willing martyr. Financially co-creative, Scorpio may combine resources with others for equitable material solutions.

SAGITTARIUS, ruled by expansive Jupiter, is strongly identified with its religion or philosophy, but must not negate others’ values. It can be a strong negotiator, uncovering the common thread of greatness in all spiritual beliefs.

CAPRICORN, ruled by Saturn, planet of maturity, wisdom and conservative tradition, is politically powerful and the best sign to get things done properly, rather than merely theorizing about solutions.

AQUARIUS, ruled by innovative Uranus, has progressive change in mind, not just personal or partisan interests. Unselfishly humanitarian, it crusades for causes that benefit masses.

PISCES idealistically believes in a higher subtler love than most Earthlings comprehend, and is subsequently more tolerant of others’ shortcomings. However, it may need to develop boundaries of acceptable propriety.
