Perhaps all your breakups will suddenly makes sense. Ultimately, you can still chart your own course, but having a little insight into how the stars affect your love life can never hurt.
Aries are typically highly ambitious and goal-oriented. They have big dreams and are eager to make them come true. An Aries needs a partner that understands this and gives them the freedom to pursue those goals… even if it means not getting to spend as much time together. If an Aires is in the midst of pursuing a professional or creative career and their partner needs a substantial amount of quality couple time, the relationship won’t be very successful.
As the Bull of the zodiac, one of Taurus’s best-known traits is stubbornness. This means a Taurus likes to play things safe. This Earth sign needs to be very sure of something, like a new relationship, before jumping all the way in. A Taurus can come around – and will be in it for the long haul – but it will take some time. If a Taurus is with someone who rushes them to do something, their stubbornness will come into play and they will resist. Patience is indeed a virtue, especially in the eyes of a Taurus.
Geminis tend to be extroverts and love chatting with every person in their lives. Communication skills come naturally to Geminis, and they expect the same from others. This doesn’t just mean talking for the sake of talking; it means honest communication between partners about their feelings. If a Gemini is with someone who tends to withdraw rather than be open about their emotions, that communication breakdown will likely lead to a relationship breakdown.
Cancers have a tight-knit crew of people with whom they’re close. Instead of going out to big gatherings, they’d rather spend time with their small circle of friends or close family members. Building trust with a Cancer may take some time because only a select few get that level of approval, and part of that acceptance process is being liked by their close confidants. To paraphrase the Spice Girls, if you want to be a Cancer’s lover, you gotta get with their friends.
Leos love to be the center of attention, but it’s not actually because they’re arrogant. Instead, Leos tend to be insecure, and they crave attention and compliments in order to put themselves at ease. As a result, this Fire sign needs to be someone willing to give them that reassurance and who doesn’t mind if they get most of the glory. It’s not a role everyone is willing to play, but a Leo needs to find that special selfless someone in order to make it work.
Virgos enjoy being needed since they are the sign of the helper. While this can make Virgos pleasant to be around, it also means some people may take advantage of their helpfulness. It also means they may fall for people with a lot of problems that need fixing, since that allows the Virgo to feel useful. However, if their partner has very serious problems, it may be too much for a Virgo to handle and they’ll feel drained. A Virgo has to find that line between giving as much as possible without feeling like someone is taking advantage of them.
Libras love being in love… or at least the idea of being in love. When it comes to relationships, Libras expect the kind of romance you see in fairy tales or rom-coms. In other words, they’re often in a world of fantasy rather in a world of reality. For a relationship with a Libra to work, they have to lower their expectations. If they expect things to be perfect all the time, the relationship will fall short. But if they accept that a relationship will have its share of ups and downs, they may be able to ride things out.
Scorpios don’t like to fully commit until they know they’ve got a sure thing. But how do you know you’ve got a sure thing or not? For a Scorpio, they try to figure this out by doing as much investigating as possible. This can mean this Water sign invites their partner to open up… or it can mean snooping around the internet to get as much of their partner’s backstory as possible.
In any case, this intensity can be uncomfortable for a partner. It can also be frustrating, as Scorpios tend to keep a lot of secrets themselves. If a Scorpio indulges in sleuthing and prying too much, the relationship might end before it even gets a chance to get started.
Sagittarius crave constant excitement and new experiences. For that reason, they love the rush they feel at the beginning of a relationship. However, once the honeymoon phase passes, they can lose interest, which means they need a partner who can keep them on their toes. If a relationship can constantly throw new challenges at them, they’ll want to stick around. But if things go stale, they’ll seek excitement elsewhere.
Capricorns are great at sticking through during tough times in a relationship because they’re logical enough to know when it’s merely temporary. However, that logical side also means they have less of an emotional side and are less likely to get caught up in the idea of romance. If they’re with a partner who is hoping to get swept off their feet, this will be a problem. But if the partner is okay with things being steady and reliable, they’re in luck. You probably won’t get a surprise romantic getaway with a Capricorn, but you will get someone loyal and devoted without drama.
Aquarians are known for being fiercely independent and even as a bit of a loner. Being in a relationship might not be necessary for an Aquarius, as they do enjoy their freedom. This doesn’t mean they have no interest in being in a loving a relationship, but sometimes they may be in it for the wrong reasons; their rebellious streak may lead them to continue a relationship not necessarily out of love, but because others disapprove. For instance, if the parents of an Aquarius insists their offspring only date someone with a certain amount of money, look for the Aquarius to go out with someone in a low tax bracket… even if the two aren’t otherwise compatible.
Pisces can be dreamers, and while hoping for the best isn’t a bad thing on its own, it can be if it takes Pisces out of reality. A Pisces’s desire for everything in a relationship to be perfect can lead them to ignore the actual problems right in front of them. Problems will continue to go unresolved, and their partner will become more and more unhappy as this Water sign continues to ignore the issues. Eventually, a Pisces will have to face reality and have open communication with their partner… or they will face the reality of no longer having a relationship.
