There is a dark side and bright side to every Zodiac sign. Unfortunately, our dark side is what get’s us into life altering trouble! If you’re into astrology, then you already know each Zodiac sign comes with its own set of unique quirks. Virgos are way into details, Scorpios can be kind of jealous, Cancers are super sensitive — the list goes on and on.
For better or worse, these traits can lead to challenges in your relationships, which is why the more you can know about them and how they can affect your partnerships, the better.
Aries (March 21 – April 19):
Aries is the first sign in the zodiac, so you are impulsive and playful. Your biggest issue is you give too much of yourself and become resentful and very angry when it is not reciprocated. No one is willing to sacrifice themselves as much as you do, so to expect your lover to match your eagerness and unnecessary sacrifices is unrealistic. If you want to give your all, be happy doing it without expecting others to do the same. Learn a healthy sense of give and take. Don’t just give, give, and give, then explode in anger like a complete psychopath when all your tedious favors are not returned!
Taurus (April 20 – May 21):
As a Taurus, you live for the couple life. But your cuddly, loving ways can go a bit too far, often to the point of clinginess. You’re pretty stubborn and set in your ways. That means you won’t budge for anyone or anything when it comes to the important stuff. And what is most important to you is respect. You are a prideful person with really high standards. You show a lot of respect to your partner and would expect the same in return. But the moment your partner disrespects you is the moment they have lost you forever. You know what you want and you aren’t afraid to lose someone who can’t give it to you.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20):
Because you’re forever curious and your mind craves new learning experiences, it’s important that your mate understand how much energy it’s going to take to keep you on a committed path and be up for the challenge. You’re all about the communication. You need someone who is happy to chat with you, with your friends and with strangers you happen to bump into on nights out. And you also need that social connection with your partner so he better be sending you lots of texts, articles, and photos throughout the day when you’re apart.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22):
Cancerian is all about creating that warm family atmosphere with family, friends, and especially with a romantic partner. For you, partnership is about being completely open and vulnerable with one another. You want to share everything and get to know each other on a deep level. You’re emotional, intuitive, and you don’t believe in keeping secrets. If a partner isn’t able to open up with you, then you’ll walk. You also need a partner who has the same ideas for the future as you do. You’re all about moving in together, getting married, and starting your family.
Leo (July 22 – August 22):
Leos may need loads of attention, more so than the other signs. This is because Leos are ruled by the sun, and the rays of the sun need to shine on them a lot for them to be happy. You like to take care of yourself and appearances do mean something to you. You value how you look, how your home looks and certainly how your partner looks. You demand way more attention from your partner than you offer instead.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22):
you’re not as into appearances as a Leo but you do care what lies beneath. You really believe in looking deep at someone’s values and seeing how that is portrayed in their lives. So a bad haircut won’t set you off like it will for a Leo but maybe bad breath will. You want to know that your partner is taking care of their body. But more than that, you need a partner who is ambitious. You are all about success in your personal life and in your career. You have big goals and big dreams and need a partner who is just as goal-oriented as you are. Unambition will kill your relationship and you’ll feel like you have nothing to talk about.
Libra (September 23 – October 22):
You just love LOVE more than any other sign. You’re notorious for falling hard, and falling fast, and falling deep. However, your natural tendency is to bounce from lover to lover, because you have so much love to give that it can’t possibly be poured into just one person. For you, life is all about finding harmony with your fellow human beings. You are eternally positive and optimistic. You love helping your fellow man and doing your part to better our world. And your partner needs to not only appreciate that about you but join you in your mission. You surround yourself with good energy; if your partner is full of negativity, you’ll feel completely drained.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21):
Without a doubt, the biggest issue for Scorpios is trust. Ruled by their hearts, Scorpions are one of the most emotionally powerful signs out of all the zodiacs. Scorpios don’t like to have their time wasted and will not wait around for a liar to clean up their act. Even the smallest little white lies can really upset a Scorpio. You need someone who is serious about you and your relationship – and that means being honest and transparent. You also need someone who is able to be there for you and follow through. You hate empty promises. If your partner keeps talking the talk but can’t walk the walk, then it’s you who is going to be walking right out of the relationship. Nothing turns a Scorpio off faster than lying.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21):
The best thing about you is that you don’t need a partner to start living your adventurous life. You’re just so full of spice and personality. You dominate the social scene and are a fabulous addition to a party. You crave admiration and attention the same way girls like me crave chilled champagne on a hot summer day. However, your need for attention and your uncensored humor will backfire the moment your partner decides to take you home for the holidays. You need a partner who has a drive that rivals their own, otherwise the Sagittarian will hop out of it, as soon as they get the opportunity.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19):
Capricorns are all about sincerity, integrity, and responsibility. You don’t do well with things that aren’t the real deal because you work so hard in your life to be as authentic as possible. You’re organized, you have wonderfully high standards and you are the great perfectionists of the zodiac. You just like your things to be neat, and I respect that. You like to WIN, and I respect that, too. You just want the best, and I like the best, too. The compliments are like drugs to you. However, you don’t like when the switch flips, so when your partners dare to critique you, you go nuts. You also want someone who can take on responsibility, help out around the house, and care for you. You know what you want and you know how to get it. You know how to take care of yourself. But it isn’t fair for you to have to take care of someone else too. Your partner should be secure in themselves and responsible enough to look after both of you.
Aquarius (January 29 – February 18):
You are the ultimate free spirit. You love to test limits and experiment. You believe in trying new ideas and experiencing whatever you can. So the worst partner for you would be someone with a closed mind who insists on practical things over new ideas. Someone who is narrow-minded and constantly shutting you down will make you feel hurt. You’ll want to get out of that as soon as possible and move on to someone who appreciates your take on life. It takes you a while to fall in love, but when you do, you fall HARD. Real hard. The only trouble is when you love, you love for life. You’re like a goddamn penguin.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20):
You are sensitive and emotional. You’re so sweet. You’re like an adorable puppy who just wants to be loved, loved, LOVED. You have a lot of feelings and your partner needs to respect that. Your partner needs to be kind and caring. They need to take the time to help you open up and to be there for you when you need them. Your partner is all about support and comfort. So if they show a insensitive side to themselves, you’re out. You have a huge heart Pisces, so someone who is rude or inconsiderate can stomp all over that. They don’t deserve you. While your vulnerability is fabulous, it causes you to trust the wrong people. You open your heart up to people who don’t deserve your love and attention, but you won’t be able to see that. Because you’re in love.
