ARIES (March 21 - April 19)
Aries can out-shout anyone who tries to debate with them. They’re stubborn and dedicated to their own point of view. If you can make them think that changing their mind was their own idea, then you’ve got a better chance of winning that argument.
TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)
Once they’ve made their mind up about something, there’s no changing it. Your best bet is to appeal to their common sense or their physical senses: beauty and pleasure are Taurus’s weak spots. Take them where they can see a beautiful view and explain to them how your way will benefit them the most.
GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)
It’s actually easy to get a Gemini to agree with you. Your opinion is more likely to stick in their minds if you can convince a Gemini that your way really is the most popular. Let them know that your social life will suffer if they don’t go along with your plan.
CANCER (June 21 - July 22)
Cancer hates confrontation but it’s hard to win an argument with them when their protective instinct kicks in. When they feel like they have to protect themselves or someone else. They’ll calm down if you can show them that everyone’s going to be okay, and they really don’t have anything to fear.
LEO (July 23 - August 22)
Flattery will get you anywhere with this sign. Start off with compliments and make sure you you never interrupt them. They’ll most likely listen to you and your idea.
VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)
Don’t argue with Virgo. They can pick you apart in seconds, because they see exactly where you’ve gone wrong. If you can’t avoid it, be prepared to back up your position with facts, figures and examples. If you can prove they’re wrong, they have no problem changing their mind.
LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)
Libra doesn’t argue; they negotiate. You won’t win a fight with Libra, but you won’t lose, either. If you can show them that your position is fair, they’re most likely to compromise. If there’s a way that you can both get something that you want, Libra’s are more than happy to settle.
SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)
Mind-games, half-truths, and fancy leaps of logic are not going to work on Scorpio. Even worse, they’ll lose all respect for anyone who argues like that. Tell the truth — even if it’s uncomfortable. Express your real feelings and motivations. Don’t try to sugar-coat anything. If you can argue honorably, Scorpios are more likely to let you win an argument.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)
Sagittarius knows a little bit about everything. They definitely love to learn but if you can teach them why they’re wrong and help them understand more about the issue, then you’re good to go. If the whole problem really boils down to opposing opinions, you might as well agree to disagree.
CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)
Capricorn don’t have time for silly bickering. If the issue doesn’t directly relate to what they’re working on, they don’t really care who’s right or wrong. If it does, you better have a very good reason for trying to get them change their mind.
AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)
Before you get into it with an Aquarius, you have to make sure you understand their point of view. They tend to see things from very different angles, that are complex. Don’t even bother appealing to their emotional side — they’ve got that under control. Instead, try explaining how many people would benefit from your idea.
PISCES (February 19 - March 20)
Confrontation is so frustrating and upsetting for this sign, they’re likely to agree to anything, just to make the fighting stop. They can actually feel others’ anger and emotional distress, making them understand exactly where you’re coming from.
