How Each Zodiac Sign Fights in Their Relationships
How do you fight in a relationship? Ruby Miranda for YourTango shares how different zodiac signs handle things when arguments ensue.
It's all about communication.
You know that moment when you just smell trouble brewing inside your partner's head? Like, at any second, they're going to blow and only you know how that's going to look, because when they let loose and get aggressive in a lover's quarrel, they "do" certain things? Tell-tale signs that let you know just how the dreaded fight is going to go down?
Nobody likes to fight with their partner (unless of course you're a Virgo, but we'll get into that later). Still, sparring with one's lover can cause incredible stress. But the interesting thing is that no one fights the exact same way, especially when we use astrology. And when it comes to how the zodiac signs fight in relationships, no two signs hit the dojo mat for some argumentative distraction the same way.
Each zodiac sign expresses anger and defense in their own way, and how they go about holding up their end of the ramrod depends on the traits they've pulled from their astrological background. Here's how they show up for a fight, within the context of their romantic relationship.
ARIES (March 21 to April 19)
Aries hits below the belt and with their stun-gun set to kill. There is no middle ground, no place of peace with Aries. If your partner is an Aries, you will be beaten down verbally, even if you're right.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20)
Dirty, dirty and dirty. Taurus really doesn't want to fight. They'd much rather glide through a peace-filled love story, but alas, that doesn't happen on earth, and so when Taurus does decide to enter the ring, they are underhanded, insulting, unfair and break every known rule there is.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20)
Gemini never wins. But in an argument or fight with one, all you'll really feel is that they didn't even try to win. That's because they are internally ignoring you to death. They don't care about winning, they only care about you shutting up, finally.
CANCER (June 21 to July 22)
Cancer doesn't fight, they whine. So if you find yourself battling your Cancer mate, understand this: you'll probably lose simply because you won't be able to handle the moodiness and sulky (and obnoxious) moaning of your partner.
LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22)
If only Leo could step back and watch their "fighting their lover" performance, because if they could, surely they'd overly approve of themselves and go for more. Next time you fight with your Leo lover, check out how they look in the mirror as they fight.
VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)
Basically, there is no life without fighting for Virgo, so if you're coupled with someone of this sign, be prepared to be at war 24/7. Not to mention that they delight in sparring, so fighting with a Virgo is a happy day for them, indeed.
LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)
You'll wonder why your Libra mate doesn't really fight you, or why they always seem to back off. They're not backing off. What they are doing is using their ultimate fighting skill: Passive-aggressive behavior. Libra won't fight but they'll certainly bore you to death.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)
Believe it or not, Scorpio hates to fight. Their aggression and need for pain is much more about surprise and control; a lover's quarrel is not a controlled situation, so fighting with your Scorpio partner is much easier than, say, jumping into bed with them.They won't fight. Not unless they can guarantee you're going to cry at the end.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)
At once both total brutes and milquetoast pushovers, Sagittarius is completely put off by having to fight with a lover. And why? Because if they let out what's really on their mind, it's relationship apocalypse. Sag is too good with words to fight with, and they know it. So they basically shut up during an argument.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)
It's hard to fight this sign, as they are highly intelligent as well as snobby beyond belief. To fight with your Capricorn lover is to endure insults, condescension, petty jabs and mean-hearted words. They may not mean a thing, but they are very impressed with themselves as they go about doing the hurting.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)
The Aquarian fight goes like this: they state what's on their mind, it's soft, bland and dumb. Then you beat the living crap out of them because you can't stand how utterly and phenomenally weak they are in an argument. You win, then hopefully, you learn.
PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20)
It's all a passive-aggressive theatrical performance with this sign during a romantic squabble. They like to throw in weepiness and martyrdom at every turn, so be prepared to lose your freaking mind trying to get your point across. The sobs will override your every word.
