You might consider added these two options: ImageSize -> {1400}, Method -> "SpringEmbedding", This is not completely satisfactory, but the labels don't overlap. All but one arrow head is at least partly visible. Some isolated portions of the graph have only two vertexes with one edge. Curiously, these portions are rendered differently in an apparent attempt to maintain identical spacing between two vertexes, the arrow-edge aesthetics are sacrificed: sometimes the arrow is too short to connect the boxes; sometimes too long and and partly obscured, and sometimes are "just right." Other values for Method (such as "SpringElectricalEmbedding") give somewhat different layouts.
