Everyone loves a good man, though everyone’s definition of a good man varies just enough to make him perfectly unique. Some of us want a really beefed up tough guy with a heart of gold while some of us want someone nice and quiet who won’t make a lot of demands on us. Some of us want a guy who will treat us like royalty and some of us want an adventurer who will dazzle us with his traveling tales before sweeping us off on one of them. But no matter what our relationship goals are, inevitably we find ourselves in a fight with our man and wonder what we’ve gotten ourselves into. And if we stick around long enough, we will likely see a fight matter begin to emerge. And based on his personality and his astro sign, we might be able to get a jump on those predictable fights he is always starting. Then, next time he gets all revived up, we can get the jump on him and blindside him with a very good argument or a proven method which we know will distract him long enough that he forgets about the fight. A glass of vino or dark chocolate is highly recommended to accompany this article.
Air is all around us and inside us on a daily bases, and without it, we wouldn’t be alive. Air changes, adjusts, interweaves, and flows freely. Lighter than Earth, equal to the force of water and the fuel which fire relies on — air is vastly important in the grander scheme of things. And the signs which belong to air are the balancers of life — Libra, Aquarius, and Gemini. Libra begins the new season while Aquarius holds the course steady for a time and Gemini ends it, changing control over to the new season. According to Astrology Zo. Signs, “This is the element that connects all other elements, even though it might seem less relevant, invisible as it is.”
Born between September 23 and October 22, Libra is the balance of the astro sign, and a Libra man is quite the catch. He will almost always be kind and considerate — taking your feelings into account. But, true to his Libra nature, he will have trouble making decisions and with self-esteem. He will seek to feel respected by those important to him and find balance in his own life. He’ll likely fight over the decisions he is procrastinating on, to the point of accusing you of nagging him. According to Astrology Zo. Signs, “The additional problem to trust for a Libra man is his low self-esteem, making him question every decision he has to make."
Born right after Libra, between October 23 and November 21, Scorpio is similar to Libra but very different in enough areas to make it count. As a water sign, Scorpio is connected to his emotions and fairly good at communication, but not necessarily in the important areas. According to Your Tango, “Having control is very important to you, and sometimes this leads you to become possessive and jealous.” This means that your man will likely get so attached to you (in a healthy way anyways) that he’ll become his own worst enemy and sabotage the relationship through his need for control and possessive tendencies.
Arriving between November 22 and December 21, Sagittarius is one of those magnetic guys who is all geared up and ready to party till the sun comes up. He’s a passionate fire sign, and he very likely swept you off your feet and whirled you around till you weren’t sure which way was up. But he’s starting to show his unstable side and his general unreliability for long-term plans. Plus, as Bustle tells us,
“You are all about freedom — freedom to learn, to travel, and to explore. So you don't do well with partners who aren't willing to give you that space.”
Giving him distance will help win him over if he really falls hard.
Earth is stable, steady and sure of itself. It anchors us to reality and is tangible in an ever-changing world. No matter where we are, we can always look down and touch the ground, feel the life force inside it and realign ourselves with reality when things became too muddled. The signs of the earth in the astro calendar are the protective, safe and dependable ones — Capricorn, Taurus, and Virgo. According to Astrology Zod. Signs, “This is a somewhat complicated element because it is stiff and unmovable, especially when a person has a lot of planets in it, but not enough of them in the element of Air to balance it out.”
Following hard on the heels of the freedom-loving Sagittarius is the hard-working and responsible Capricorn, born between December 22 and January 19. This man will often put work ahead of all his other priorities, including you. Sometimes, he will step back and let someone else have the chance at leading or completing the project, but when there is a lack of direction, and he gets antsy, Capricorn will take control and finish whatever it is. As Astrology Zo. Signs puts it, “If you are looking for a man at which you can point your finger and say: ‘He is difficult’, that would be a Capricorn man.”
Born between January 20 and February 18, Aquarius is a unique blend of aloofness and wanting to connect with those around him. He will struggle in communicating clearly in his relationships and — as his significant other — you will most likely find him annoyingly aloof when you feel he should be more connected. It’s important for the Aquarius man to feel respected by those closest to him. According to Astrology Zo. Signs, “He will not be hurt that easily, because of his very strong mind, but the feel of constant disrespect might make him distant and detached, as if the person he is with doesn’t deserve to understand his personality.”
Born between February 19 and March 20, Pisces is a slippery fellow. In some ways, he represents everything dark, devious, and deceitful. His flip side is trust and intense loyalty. Unfortunately, your Pisces man is likely not the most punctual of men and his plans are constantly changing. Pisces doesn’t like it when the ride gets rough, as Your Tango describes.
“When things take a turn for the worst, it’s hard for you to remain positive and you’ll often try to find ways to escape from reality instead of facing the truth.”
While not nearly as dramatic as a fire sign, Pisces was clearly born for the theater and television world.
Fire fuels us, whether it’s the inspiration of an idea or passion burning inside us or a dream we’ve set our hearts on. Fire warms us—literally and figuratively. And sometimes fire burns us. But even on the darkest days, fire is useful and has its place. The signs of fire are Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius. According to Astrology Zo. Signs, “This is the element that represents energy itself, and even though there is a lot of earthly energy in the element of Water, it cannot be compared with the amount of energy that lives in the sun, even though they might be equally important to the human race.”
Born between March 21 and April 19, Aries figuratively and literally leads with his head. He doesn’t always make the brightest decisions, but he has enough fire in his veins to back up those decisions to the point where no one really wants to challenge him. One of his problems is that he never likes to admit defeat — even if it was his own fault. Much of his anger will, therefore, be misdirected. According to Allure, “They're fuelled by their passion, and while their fiery dispositions support their signature bravery — governed by Mars, they're natural warriors — they're also known to throw temper tantrums.”
Born between April 20 and May 20, the Taurus is the most stubborn sign. He loves his safe routines and is firmly anchored in his life — often leading many to assume he is dull and boring. But if nurtured properly, Taurus is exactly what many of us need in life. His biggest problem is his horrible reaction to change. He’ll like to fight on every point when presented with a new change in his life. According to Astrology Zo. Signs, “They are loyal and don't like sudden changes, criticism or the chase of guilt people are often prone to, being somewhat dependable on other people and emotions they seem to be unable to let go of.”
Born May 21 through June 20, Gemini is the complete opposite of Taurus. They need change, movement, and excitement to thrive or they’ll fear the threat of a mundane routine and panic. He will want to play with you and go on wild adventures — which sound fun but will exhaust you. Like Pisces, his reliability will change by the day, and he likely won’t show up on time. According to Your Tango, “You don’t have much of a success rate when it comes to achieving long-term goals — you tend to get bored very easily and find that you can’t stay dedicated to one thing for too long.”
Water is vital to life, equal to air in many respects. Water compliments earth beautifully, working together to create new life and water opposes fire — keeping the rush and rage of ideas and force contained when it would take over the world. In the astro calendar, the signs of water are Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces. According to Astrology Zo. Signs,
“This is the element of constant movement, but slow and steady, swirling inside each of us and holding on to its mystery.
This is the element of conception and death, of illusions, and fairytales, holding the secret to our soul — its beginning and its end.”
Born between June 21 and July 22, Cancer is an emotional water sign. He’ll sweep you off your feet simply with his ability to understand you better than other men in your life. He can feel things on a deeper level and empathize strongly. On the other hand, he can be very insecure and clingy to the point of neediness. He may or may not be aware of this. According to Your Tango,
“You tend to become attached too early in relationships, and this can make it difficult for you to move on and accept change.”
Out of all the signs, Cancer likely won’t pick a fight and battle like a fire sign, but he will have his down days.
Born between July 23 and August 22, Leos are very special, and they know it. One of their main objectives is to be treated like royalty because they practically are royalty. The Leo man is very stubborn, uncompromising, and always seeking to be in control. Uncontrollable circumstances in life will frustrate him and possibly upset him. He is not the most patient of men either. But he can make up for this with his flair for the dramatic and his intense loyalty. According to Your Tango, “Having control is very important to you. This can sometimes make others view you as someone who’s headstrong and uncompromising.”
Born between August 23 and September 22, Virgos are neat freaks. They like to have complete control and — unfortunately for anyone close to a Virgo — they will pick a fight over the littlest of things. These fights usually occur because something wasn’t done according to Virgo’s high standards of perfection. According to Allure,
“They want things to be perfect, and when they're not, Virgos can become obsessed with 'fixing things.' When coupled, these earth signs must remember that it's actually counterproductive to constantly scrutinize relationship dynamics.”
Life with a Virgo isn’t always easy, but they have their uses. They are great at fine detail work and they a very clean house.
Aries is represented by the ram and often literally leads with his head. Prone to acting first and maybe thinking later, the Aries man can accomplish great things in life, but one little impulsive decision on his part can destroy his entire life as well. Whether it’s cheating, he’s passed over for a promotion, or his kid won’t take a bath, Aries will fight about it instead of talking calmly and working things out. According to Culture Astrology,
“They're easily frustrated, so it's really easy to say something that will make them angry.
Once they get angry, they will be overly dramatic and won't let you go that easily.”
Being represented by the king of the jungle, these signs can — when slighted or challenged — be a force to reckon with. They are arrogant, mighty, and harsh. If they perceive a question, an attitude change or even a lack of attention as a threat they can leap into a fight faster than most of us can think and they won’t back down till they’ve won. According to Culture Astrology,
“They have trouble keeping their cool and when they're mad or they simply disagree with you, they will turn straight up aggressive and will be ready to fight anyone.
Leos are very loud, intense people, and even the smallest thing can make them very angry.”
Scorpions are deadly creatures, and they represent the Scorpios. Most Scorpios are calm and easy-going, fitting in well with their water sides. But one little wrong look, word or action and the Scorpio turns deadly. Half the time they overreact based on poor communication, and it takes a lot of effort to clear the lines and resolve the problem. Scorpio won’t always apologize first either which will hurt twice as much when we are the innocent recipients of their stinging words. Once they are on the warpath, watch out. According to Bustle,
“Scorpios aren't big fighters as much as they are quick escalators.
When you've offended a Scorpio or triggered their defence, you'll know.”
Bulls are generally gentle, peaceful creatures but they can become enraged at the slightest thing. Then they proceed to charge and won’t stop till the thing is mashed into the ground — no matter the consequences. The Taurus is very similar in this regard and threatens his own healthy relationships by digging in and not budging over an important issue. According to Bustle,
“The Taurus personality does not like to admit when they are wrong, and that's mostly because they rarely believe they are wrong.
They're incredibly confident in their convictions and are quick to defend their actions, even if the evidence is against them.”
