How the Sun Signs Deal with Sibling Rivalries

How the Sun Signs Deal with Sibling Rivalries
Family life tends to be romanticized with visions of a contented mother, father, brothers and sisters all getting along merrily. The reality, of course, is that siblings can sometimes act like a den of baby hyenas trying to inflict damage on each other. Depending on each individual's Sun sign, all siblings cope differently with disagreements (and worse) -- here's a primer for parents.

Aries
Aries will often try to talk themselves out of a squabble ... and because they have agile minds, they often manage it. They also never bear grudges for long, and can't understand why anyone else should, either.

Taurus
Taurus is more easily stung by hurtful remarks than they let on, and can go into brooding silences for a very long time. They are the masters of the art of passive resistance, so they can let arguments fester unresolved. They'd do well to learn the art of letting go.

Gemini
Gemini usually has more contact with brothers and sisters than most signs, but they will still vie for center stage -- which can result in fearsome disputes over who deserves more attention. However, they're warm-hearted to the core, so they'll eventually reach out to make up.

Cancer
Cancer can be sharply critical of siblings in a superior fashion -- and needless to say, this doesn't go down well. It's mainly because they regard their family as an extension of themselves. If they can see their family peers as individuals with a right to live their own lives, it'll certainly help.

Leo
Leo is generally amiable towards brothers and sisters, wanting to keep life running on an even keel. They have the irksome tendency to be know-it-alls, and they insist on getting most of the attention. But they'll try to smooth over their rough edges whenever they can.

Virgo never takes anything lightly. They're intense in their family relationships and, at times, rather stinging in their responses, which can leave lasting resentment. They should lighten up and realize that not everyone lives the way they do.

Libra
Most of the time, Libra will race around trying to keep everyone else happy. But they also have an unnerving habit of wanting to take the opposite view from time to time, just to keep the balance. And unless the moderator parent tries to keep everyone on the same wavelength, this can lead to problems.

Scorpio
Scorpio can be decidedly cool about brothers and sisters, taking a rather business-like view that everyone needs to share tasks fairly. They are not good at play, so often end up being the odd one out. They need to loosen up, stop pointing out mistakes and be more spontaneous.

Sagittarius
Sagittarius fluctuates between seeing siblings as fun friends ... or a real chore. Their mood swings can be unsettling, since the others never know quite what to expect. Their tendency to pair up with one sibling can sometimes lead to divisive, warring camps.

Capricorn
Capricorn can be evasive and uncertain about siblings. They find them rather mysterious, difficult to pin down and too tricky to spend much time on. Simply put, they need to trust their hunches more about what's going on within the family.

Aquarius
Just as they are with everyone else, Aquarius insists on being upfront with brothers and sisters. They like things to be out in the open, which may unsettle more sensitive, naturally secretive siblings. The upside to this, though, is that tensions are quickly aired -- and quickly resolved.

Pisces
Pisces can be surprisingly stubborn, playing their cards close to the chest and being slippery with brothers and sisters; because of this, suspicions sometimes arise regarding their motives. If they can find enough confidence to open up, it will definitely raise the family mood.
