Confrontation Styles Based on the Planets



This describes your confrontation style towards friends! This does not apply to significant others or family members as much, since we tend to save our batshit crazy side for them… lucky people 🙂

If you feel that your Sun sign does not match your confrontation style above, it is most likely because your other planets say otherwise. Your confrontation style can be pinpointed by combining interpretations of your Natal Moon, Mercury and Mars as well as your Sun, which is what the picture above is based off of.

In terms of confrontation styles:

Your Sun sign, house placement and aspects will describe you in general.

Your Moon sign, house placement and aspects will describe your innate reaction to things that strike an emotional chord in you.

Your Mercury sign, house placement and aspects will describe how you communicate and how incorporate your intellect in different situations.

Your Mars sign, house placement and aspects will describe how you assert yourself.

Mercury and Mars may also be in retrograde in your natal chart, which changes your communication style and assertion style, respectively.


The following example describes someone with Sun in Sagittarius, Moon in Cancer, Mercury in Capricorn and Mars in Aquarius. For all intents and purposes, I chose to include all the elements – Fire, Earth, Air, Water.

With Sun in Sagittarius, you will usually say what is on your mind – however, your mind will often tell you not to appear weak or to not waste your time on emotions, so when you are hurt, you may find it easier to just not confront the situation. If your emotions run deep and are not nurtured, this can eventually lead to a physical or emotional breakdown.

If your Moon is in Cancer, you will be equipped with sensitivity, a wide range of emotions and you intuitively pick up on others’ emotions. You have an instinctive need to take action towards protecting and nurturing those you care about. However, when you are overwhelmed with emotion, you often find it best to retreat to think about the best course of action.

If your Mercury is in Capricorn, you tend to have a clear, methodical mind and you have a great capacity to compartmentalize your thoughts. When you communicate, you tend to appear stiff and authoritative. You may not have the desire or the ability to express the depths of your emotions, as you find that emotions don’t matter in the “real world.”

If your Mars is in Aquarius, you assert yourself with logic, rhetoric and reasoning. In personal confrontations, you stay calm and emotionally detached. You would rather spend your energy on situations that help out the greater good. However, you don’t budge when you think you’re right – I’m sure it’s safe to say that most people would rather bang their heads against a fucking wall instead of argue with you.
