Star Signs In Lockdown: How To Solve Relationship Drama
Providing guidance on how to cope, we hope this blog helps you deal with difficult signs, so that together, your relationships come out stronger than ever before.
They say you don’t really know what someone is like until you’ve lived with them, and as we’ve all discovered during lockdown, this isn’t always a wholly positive experience. We’ve all been feeling the pressure of staying in and not living our lives to the fullest, and on top of that, we’ve had to see the same people - or person - day in, day out. And though many have found this comforting, it has also given rise to disagreements and arguments between partners and family members - or more than usual, anyway! Especially when differing personalities are involved, arguments can seem to go nowhere, without resolution and remorse. Therefore, we here at Psychic Sofa wanted to take a more astrological view of arguments - i.e. how Zodiac signs argue - and provide understanding for the personality traits and argumentative styles of the star signs. Providing guidance on how to cope, we hope this blog helps you deal with difficult signs, so that together, your relationships come out stronger than ever before.
The Impact Of Lockdown On Relationships - Stress, Anxiety & Need For Space
Lockdown has taken away our daily structure and routine, and put families, and those in relationships, closer together, with little opportunity for separation and ‘’me time’’. Couples can no longer use experiences outside the home - such as meeting up with friends - to refresh and share what is going on inside the home, and this can cause built up resentment and frustration. Negotiating differences and tolerating the ‘otherness’ of partners and loved ones can prove challenging at the best of times, and in such close living quarters, can bring these disagreements to the fore. As we all know, taking time out and cooling off after a disagreement is harder when meeting a friend or going to the gym are off limits. And what about relationships that were already under strain pre-COVID-19? Anxiety surrounding whether it will survive, and if it’s strong enough to endure continuous proximity can add itself to a long list of worries and stressors that are impacting many relationships to this day.
If you’ve been experiencing disagreements - which may start from seemingly small misunderstandings and escalate to big rows which get heated and out of control, then don’t worry - you’re honestly not alone. As psychotherapist, Marta Szapiel, quoted in happiful, states:
“During disagreements, it usually feels impossible for two different opinions to exist together and partners confront each other claiming that they are 'right' and the other is 'wrong'. In those moments, their exchanges turn into a war-like experience and the only thing that is on their mind is 'winning'. However, as a result of the row they both feel defeated, misunderstood, hurt and unhappy.”
Understanding each other then, and the reasons for the arguments, are big steps in moving forward and better dealing with issues that may arise again in the future. Personality plays a part, as does your argument style. At Psychic Sofa, we know that star signs can help to steer personality in both positive and negative traits, and can help predict your argument style too.
Zodiac Signs & Arguing - The Reasons Why
Fire signs - such as Aries, Leo and Sagittarius - tend to be passionate, dynamic and temperamental, whereas water signs - such as Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces - are characterised by their intuitive, emotional and ultra-sensitive personality. Get two together in an argument - and these differing personalities are not likely to argue well, without some level of appreciation for each other. To help aid this understanding, we want to outline the personality traits and argument styles of each star sign, and then later on, we’ll advise on how to build strong relationships that are built to last.
Fire Sign Traits & Argument Styles - Passionate, A Temper & Thinks They’re Always Right
The fire signs are:
Aries: March 21st - April 19th.
Leo: July 23rd - August 22nd.
Sagittarius: November 22nd - December 21st.
Aries Bad Traits: Aries are extremely competitive and hot-headed. They are the friend or family member we all have that will never back down. Even when they know they’re wrong, they’ll continue to fight aggressively so that they can have the last word. If there’s anything in this world that Aries can’t stand, it’s losing - and this is no less true when it comes to arguments. An Aries bad temper is also no joke, and they will likely try to put all the blame on you when in an argument. If you know their boundaries, it’s best not to test them, because an Aries will have no patience for it.
Leo Personality Traits in Arguments: Is Leo a fire sign? It most certainly is! Leos may be bold and brave, but their arrogance, and stubbornness can make them difficult to argue with. Leos find it hard to see the other side, and always seem to believe that they are right, or that their needs are more important than their partners. Leo's bad traits include being pompous and condescending, which only adds fuel to the fire when arguing with more level-headed signs such as Taurus and Libra. Push a Leo’s buttons and they’ll become child-like and irritable - best put them back in their pen.
Sagittarius Arguments & Negative Traits: This star sign has never been bothered by rules, or sticking to what is socially acceptable, and therefore, they have no limits on what they will say in arguments - no matter how ridiculous or hurtful it may seem. Usually, it’s a sign of impatience, and their need for expression, rather than a personal attack on their partner or loved one. Still, in arguments, a Sagittarius can appear cruel, but will often admit their mistakes when they’ve realised the effect this has had, apologise, and try to lighten the mood. This is typically the case when they argue with water signs.
Water Sign Traits & Argument Styles - Emotional, Compassionate & Understanding
The water signs are:
Cancer: June 21st - July 22nd.
Scorpio: October 23rd - November 21st.
Pisces: February 19th - March 20th.
Cancer Star Sign Traits: Cancers tend to be loyal and caring, which can be why they find arguments so tough. They are sympathetic and want to see the best in everyone, becoming too absorbed in the feelings of the person they are meant to be arguing with. Always trying to avoid conflict, they can get very upset during a fight because they feel their devotion is being unfairly tested. Sometimes, this can result in a quick fit of rage, and their partner must try hard to calm them down - without any malintent. A sweet star sign, Cancers do try hard to understand the feelings of others, and do not like arguing at all.
Scorpio Personality Traits: Always on the quest for truth, Scorpios are assertive and always try to uncover underlying secrets in any argument - to get to the heart of how their partner is truly feeling. It can lead to distrust and jealousy, and as anyone who has ever argued with a Scorpio knows, this can be very trying. And even if they do get the truth, if it doesn’t please them, a Scorpio may try to twist the truth to meet their needs, and make their partner feel as if they’re in the wrong. A master at manipulation, they just don’t like being wrong. But stand your ground with them, and put them in their place, and they’ll be no mistaking your victory.
Pisces Personality Traits: Pisces arguments don’t tend to last long, because they are very forgiving and love their partners and family members very much. Only engaging in arguments when they wish to stop it, they attempt to understand the other person’s point of view, so that together, they can find a resolution. When arguing with more difficult signs such as Leo, Scorpio or Capricorn, a Pisces will show compassion for their behaviour, but should there be any star signs that clash with them, they will not tolerate any childish or unfair behaviour. They tend to have good arguments with Libras and Taureans however - due to these star signs’ ability to argue fairly, and with a level head.
Air Sign Traits & Argument Styles - Intricate, Thoughtful & Requiring Space
The air signs are:
Gemini: May 21st - June 20th.
Libra: September 23rd - October 22nd.
Aquarius: January 20th - February 18th.
Gemini Negative Traits: Gemini arguments can be anyone’s guess, as their two-sided personality means that no two arguments are alike. That being said, Geminis tend not to stay mad for long periods of time, because they are social creatures, and perhaps more so than any sign, have been finding lockdown tough. If a Gemini is upset, they will tell you what is wrong not to antagonise you, but in the hopes of working through the problem together. They may not always go about it in the best way, but other star signs would be wise to notice the effort involved, and appreciate the maturity they are trying to convey.
Libra Personality Traits: Always looking to restore balance and the natural order of things, Libras rarely engage in arguments because they wish to avoid confrontation at all costs, and believe in fair discussions where everyone has their say. They are cooperative and caring, and truly have no interest in heated discussions or disagreements. If they are dragged into one, they will try their best to reason with their partner or loved one, and if they find themselves getting agitated, they’ll walk away before they explode. In lockdown, this may have proved difficult.
Aquarius Personality Traits: You could scream your head off at this star sign, shouting profanities and the nastiest of insults you could think of, and they just wouldn’t react. It’s not that an Aquarius doesn’t care or is trying to bug you, it’s that they are thinking deeply about both sides of the argument, so that they can understand your point of view, and try to reason with you. If an Aquarius does believe you are in the wrong however, after arguing with an Aquarius, they may want space for a couple of days, giving you both time to think things through and come up with a solution, and an apology.
Earth Sign Traits & Argument Styles - Logical, Irrational & Sometimes Harsh
The earth signs are:
Taurus: April 20th - May 20th.
Virgo: August 23rd - September 22nd.
Capricorn: December 22nd - January 19th.
Taurus Arguments: Whether it’s a Taurus-Leo argument, Taurus-Scorpio argument or you are arguing with a Virgo, this star sign always makes for a worthy opponent. Their common sense and practicality can be hard to argue with, because they tend to think logically, and from both sides of any conflict. Whether you’ve been disagreeing about lockdown rules, the children, or what to watch on television, a Taurus will explain their side calmly, and expect the same from you.
Virgo Arguments: Virgos are unusually sensitive for an earth sign, but rather than imploding into themselves as their water sign counterparts do, they tend to deflect their insecurities and anxieties onto whoever is arguing with them, and they sure know how to make it sting. Virgos often spark arguments about small details or things that other signs wouldn’t be concerned about too - which is why there may have been more disagreements over untidy rooms and not doing household chores recently - though we should all be playing our part. However, the best way to stop Virgos in their tracks is to compliment them in an argument - reducing their insecurities and making them feel as if you appreciate them. Pretty good advice for any argument really.
Capricorn Personality: In arguments, a Capricorn’s bad traits can unfortunately shine through. Capricorns have a hard time accepting others’ differences and because of this, conflict can often arise. They think they are always right, and that their solutions to disagreements are the only ways forward. During a fight, they can be extremely condescending and condemn others for actions that don’t align perfectly with the way in which they want to accomplish things. This can be tough for other star signs to contend with, so arguments with Capricorns require the level-headedness and understanding of star signs such as Libra, Taurus and Aquarius, among others.
Whereas some star signs use rational thinking to get through arguments, others use their passionate personality to show why they feel they are correct. How star signs argue requires understanding to get to the heart of the issue, to avoid Zodiac breakups and star sign divorces. So how do two different signs find common ground and solve their issues more efficiently? Let’s take a closer look in the next section.
The Solutions To Our Disagreements - Understanding & Care
You may be wondering which Zodiac signs argue the most? The Zodiac signs that argue the most include Leo, Scorpio, Aries, and Aquarius, with Sagittarius and Capricorn not far behind. They are contrasted with signs such as Libra and Taurus, who usually only argue when they feel it necessary to. So what are the results of Leo-Libra arguments or Scorpio-Taurus arguments? Well, without a fair discussion, not a positive one. Here at Psychic Sofa, we’d like to offer some solutions to ensure that living with loved ones is bearable, and that heated disagreements become a thing of the past, and are replaced with better discussions:
Avoid using blaming or accusatory language if you can, instead focusing on communicating your thoughts and feelings, rather than what your partner or family member has done wrong.
Check in with each other daily - a simple conversation about how you’re both feeling and coping during lockdown can help to lessen internal burdens, and ensure you both have a chance to air any issues, and resolve them in a more effective way.
Why Star Sign Compatibility Matters - Star Sign Perfect Matches
As you can imagine, one of the most popular topics our psychic readers get asked about is love, and more specifically, what star signs are compatible, which star signs are most compatible, and which star signs are not compatible? From Aries and Libra compatibility through to Gemini and Scorpio compatibility, clients have many questions about whether the personality traits, passions and goals of star signs will make for long-lasting relationships. Though compatibility - whether that’s Aquarius and Virgo compatibility, Cancer and Pisces compatibility or Capricorn and Taurus compatibility - is important, as it can be used as a guide for similar traits and interests, compatibility should form more of a basis to work off. Two differing signs can find love, so long as there is mutual respect and understanding. All couples and families argue, but finding common ground isn’t hard if you both want to work together to make it work. Passion underlies arguments, but it underlies love too.
As one of our psychic readers - Stephanie Pearce - states:
‘’I do believe that the unfortunate lockdown situation has made it worse for certain signs because they do not like to be 'held captive' in many ways and perhaps feel more isolated because of their passionate/stubbornness and need to be in control of things. Therefore it would make sense that they would be feeling more vulnerable to the COVID-19 situation. What everyone needs at this time is understanding and care, and compassion for different points of view.’’
How To Build Stronger Relationships - Love Conquers All
If you’ve been arguing a lot with your partner, or you’re finding it tough living with certain family members, you’d be forgiven for thinking that maybe, once lockdown finishes, you may need space. But deep down, you know that lockdown has been tough on everyone, and everyone deserves a second chance. Unless you feel you are in danger, or that you have been unhappy for quite some time, you don’t have to be another star sign breakup, or become part of the Zodiac sign divorce rate. If you’re wondering how to build stronger relationships with your loved ones, then we recommend the following advice:
Make time for each other, and engage in each other’s passions and hobbies. Does your Leo boyfriend like to cook, or your Gemini wife love watching art shows? Do this together, and find shared activities that you both enjoy too.
Be open, honest and share yourself. Don’t avoid tough discussions - instead, work through them together, and ensure that everyone feels happy with the solution. If it means sharing housework, giving each other some occasional space, and managing the kids’ schedules fairly, then so be it.
Trust that your partner has your best interests at heart, and that they do love you.
Relationships can be tough, and for all Zodiac signs in lockdown, these relationships have certainly been tested. From daily disagreements to full blown arguments, we’ve all had to cope, and learn how to live together. We hope this blog has helped you to better understand the argument styles of star signs, so that disagreements can be better managed in the future.
