Experience has taught Cancerians that they must be prepared for the possibility that their parents would immediately disagree with them once they have said what they have to say.
They never seem willing to make an admission of guilt. But since kids can't continue lying to their parents for very long, that is exactly what they end up doing.
They are aware that they need to plan their response in case things don't go as planned. They typically bite the bullet and take whatever discipline their parents administer for their transgressions.
Scorpios carefully listen to what their loved ones say when they discover them doing something wrong. Even when they respond passionately or violently, the Scorpio keeps their cool while speaking.
They are aware that they have the opportunity to advocate for themselves. Scorpio is usually able to get away with their secrets if they can be diplomatic and cunning, even if the outcome isn't what they had hoped it would be.
For a Virgo, any argument with their parents feels like a heated parent-teacher conference. They always plan their words before speaking and are careful how they word things.
Virgo intends to be open and sincere, but they are aware that it is unnecessary to bring up previous incidents of mischief at this moment. They focus on the particular incident that upset their parents and offer an explanation.
