How to deal with family stress during the holidays
Times of family stress hit everyone in a different way. Rising to the challenge of coping is easier for some, but all astrological signs have their own unique strengths when it comes to keeping their cool -- especially during the holidays! 
 
Earth signs can handle the practicalities -- though not necessarily the emotional angst -- that may come when families get together. The supreme coolest is Virgo, sensible, helpful, though not always tolerant of others’ panicky inability to make decisions. When over-pushed, they get rigid and nervy, and need to take time out to wind down. Capricorn will have bright ideas and a determination to get the nuts and bolts sorted out. But they will be puzzled by emotional meltdowns, and at a loss why there’s so much fuss. Taurus is possessive and basically hates change. As a result, they have to fight against their own inner resistance when there’s a move or a split. But the Bull will be rock solid in times of crisis -- unflappable and steady. Better still, they’ll always have a delicious treat on hand to cheer up the mood!

Water signs provide all the emotional comforting needed, unless they are the one involved, in which case they’ll be a whirlpool of muddled feelings. Cancer will retreat in their shells defensively; but being a Cardinal sign, the Crab does have initiative so they’ll flip suddenly into action with bright solutions and thoughtfully produced meals. Scorpio will huddle in a corner with the afflicted, offering a stalwart shoulder and understanding ear for those in need of talking through their pain. Pisces will space out, wanting to be helpful but not quite knowing how. They will adapt to prevailing circumstances and won’t get in the way. This Fish can be very kind, offering a soothing presence.
 
Fire signs aren’t always tactful in moments of high emotional stress, but they will pitch in with optimistic words of cheer. Aries will want to be doing something but may need to be steered in the right direction. They'll straight talk to bring tensions out into the open. Their decisiveness and ability to cut through distractions will be a joy. Leo will want to take the lead, but they tend to point the finger, expecting others to dance to their tune rather than pitching in with hands-on help. If they’re stressed, the Lion expects everyone around to be at their beck and call.  Sagittarius will be enthusiastic, pointing out that everything will get better very soon, adapting as needed. And  though they're not exactly subtle, they will be warmhearted.
 
Air signs will act as coolers for the overheated mood. They may stand back and analyze it all too much, but they will keep the conversation running if silences descend. Gemini needs to be given six different tasks to soak up their restlessness, and they’ll manage them all -- though not in the order you might expect! Libra will be thoughtful and caring, putting themselves in everyone else's place without getting drowned in difficult feelings. They’ll also rush off to buy expensive treats to add a touch of indulgence as a distraction from the stress. Aquarius will know all the reasons why a conflict has occurred, whether it’s an emotional, medical or other emergency. But they'll only know this in their heads! They're perplexed by oversensitive reactions, but their clearcut approach could be just what’s needed.
