Negotiation skills come in handy when two or more people agree to arrive at a common, logical solution. You negotiate with your team lead, manager or potential clients when required. So, you need to master this soft skill to improve workplace communication and resolve customer conflicts.
However, negotiation can be complex if one party is resistant while the other is ready to reach a compromise. In such cases, astrology reveals how you can fight fair if it is in your nature to do so.
This is how you negotiate as per your zodiac sign:
Aries love a good competition. They will do anything to win, especially when negotiating because losing is not in their blood.
Ruled by Mars —the planet of movement and combat—you do not fear calling a spade a spade. While discussions may look intense, you do forgive and forget others easily.
Stop: being adamant always. Be open to others’ perspectives as well.
Taureans may not seem very proactive or aggressive during a negotiation, but your practical and composed nature makes you a worthy opponent.
A typical Taurean characteristic is that you have a holistic understanding of the problem and solution and want the discussion to favor you. As Venus rules you, you love balance.
Stop: being stubborn. If you are a loan agent, be flexible with your daily or monthly targets, lead conversions, and other processes.
Geminis love people, even though you may initiate a casual debate that can eventually escalate to a full-fledged argument.
You have good communication skills, which is a gift from your ruling planet Mercury. You are also blessed with a changeable personality that allows you to think quickly during a disagreement.

Governed by the Moon, Cancers are known for their emotional and nurturing nature. Your biggest virtue is that you can use your emotions to influence people.

Stop: being so critical about yourself. We all are a work in progress.
You are ruled by the planet of love and harmony, Venus. Thus, you prefer diffusing a tense situation instead of negotiating intensely.
You are known to be harmonious and fair-minded in your interactions with others. However, you prefer someone to support you during a negotiation instead of doing it alone.
Stop: avoiding conflicts. You should express your thoughts if your reasoning can help resolve an issue.

Stop: doing everything by yourself. It is absolutely alright to ask for help.
Aquarius come across as distant or aloof, but you are internally dealing with your volatile emotions. During a negotiation, you are interested in learning about all sides of an argument.
With Saturn being your ruling planet, you are highly intelligent, and it is sometimes tough to counter-talk with you. You think deeply and really care about winning your clients or lenders.
Stop: hiding your emotions. You are allowed to be vulnerable and honest, even in business interactions.
Pisces wear their heart on their sleeves. You are sensitive and caring and try to avoid confrontations at any cost.
