Success is the Greatest Revenge

Success is the Greatest Revenge
How do you react when someone cuts you down at work and makes you feel small? Do you crawl into a corner and deflate? Do you plot how to get back at them? Or do you achieve so much that they'll end up looking insignificant? Success is truly the greatest revenge -- but can you do it? Your Sun sign can show you the way!

Aries, Sagittarius, Gemini and Aquarius never really notice small slights; bumps and bruises are all part of life's rich pattern to them. They forget put-downs rapidly and are rarely tripped up. Among these signs, Aries and Gemini have an inner motor that kicks into gear after a major scrap, and this pushes them ahead.

Libra and Capricorn get momentarily startled by ill-mannered actions that threaten their reputation, and they don't quite know how to react. But both are Cardinal signs with oodles of get-up-and-go, so if a put-down pushes them off-course, they'll simply dream up a few new ideas and be on their way to triumph!

Virgo and Pisces are often overly adaptive to the mood around them, so if they're on the receiving end of an attack and made to feel substandard, they'll tend to believe it and hold themselves back. In order to escape the unpleasantness, Pisces will be resentful before soon disappearing into a comforting daydream; Virgo will complain copiously, but then return to work-drudge mode. Both need to buck up their self-esteem and grow thicker skins -- if so, they'll flourish (but still be too polite to say "I told you so"!).

Taurus, Scorpio and Cancer tend to take the opposite approach to Virgo and Pisces, hanging on to perceived wrongdoings and retreating into a brooding phase. Scorpio will lay out the grand strategy for payback, which wastes time and energy; these folks may find it difficult to let go, but they need to learn how to move on. Taurus, in their own quiet way, is the best prepared of the three since they just keep going without getting so easily distracted.

Leo has the most problems with criticism, whether rightly or wrongly aimed at them. After all, their confidence is all for show, so their self-esteem is bound to fizzle out like a burst balloon. They take a long time to recover from public humiliation, and will go into a spiral of self-doubt. They need to toughen up, find their inner core and let it all shine. And once back in proper form, nothing will hold them back!
