Some people thrive on conflict, but the exact opposite are those who want to keep the peace. These individuals tend to hate confrontation and fighting. They don’t like it when people have beef with each other, act hostile or violent, and they prefer if people would just get along.
You have to have a certain kind of personality to be a peacekeeper. And in astrology, there are certain zodiac signs who want to keep the peace and do what they can to prevent fights, riots, and tensions.
You need to keep control of your temper and attitude when in the middle of a tense situation, and besides staying calm in volatile situations, it’s helpful if you see things from various points of view, have the ability to say the right words, and have a talent for bringing people together. If you desire to keep the peace, you need to be good at conflict resolution and preventing situations from escalating.
People are going to act the way they choose, especially if their emotions are rising and there’s a conflict with others. A peacekeeper can only do so much and must be able to recognize when they’ve done all they can. It’s up to the people involved in the conflict to try and resolve it.
1. LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
Libras want everyone to get along and not have any conflicts. People fighting, even if it’s just verbally, makes them very uncomfortable. Libras are great at seeing things from multiple perspectives and being extremely logical when it comes to fairness and justice.
They don’t place blame, they don’t threaten, but they assist people in coming together and communicating. Fair play is important and they’re not going to let that go when they’re playing the peacekeeper.
2. CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
Cancers want everyone to be one happy family, and if there’s a conflict, especially within their circle of friends or family, they will do what they can to help bring things to a conclusion. One of the ways Cancer does this is by keeping the lines of communication open and getting people to talk honestly about their feelings.
Cancers will listen to both sides and only give advice when it’s requested. They don’t insert themselves into a conflict unless it’s necessary.
3. PISCES (February 19 – March 20)
Pisces can pick up on what other people are feeling, even if the person isn’t expressing directly. Pisces are sensitive, intuitive, and have a great deal of empath,y which makes them well-suited to be peacekeepers.
They don’t place blame and they don’t make one party the bad guy. Pisces are able to contain the situation and not make it worse before it gets better. They are more likely to be part of the solution rather than source.
4. CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorns have an air about them that fosters loyalty and trust. They’re practical and are always careful about what they say so the tension doesn’t escalate. They have a talent for conflict resolution and are able to figure out the most beneficial solutions for both parties.
Capricorns stay calm and that helps the parties involved to also stay calm. If someone is yelling at the top of their lungs, they’re not going to be able to hear anything anyone else is saying or be open to trying to find a compromise.
5. VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
Virgos are known for keeping a cool head and offering practical advice. Virgo will encourage whoever is fighting or quarreling to vent a little and then start thinking of ways to fix the issue.
They are 100 percent about not overreacting. A fight among co-workers could cause both to be fired, which wouldn’t solve anything. Virgos are being the voice of reason while other people are melting down and making the conflict even worse.
