Your zodiac sign reveals much about your personality. Strengths and weaknesses are not always related to our star sign, yet there is no denying the effect the universe has on our lives. When it comes to love, there are certain things each sign must acknowledge or override in order to find love among a galaxy of souls.
(March 21st to April 19th)
Aries are confident and gregarious. They thrive on challenges and draw people to them with their charm. The downside of this is that they sometimes steamroll their partner, especially if they are with a quieter, less short-tempered sign.
What an Aries needs to understand is that their non-committal personality and adventurousness can scare them from deciding on “the one.” Because they love meeting different people and going to different places, they will oftentimes find themselves with options – if you get my drift. This is the one time where logic fails them.
(April 20th to May 21st)
Taurus is a sign that’s always being made aware of it’s major flaw: stubbornness. It’s something we associate with Taurus people more often than all their gifts: they make incredible friends. They are loyal, interesting, generous and deep people. When they are with someone, they are truly a partner in every sense of the word.
But yes, they are overly stubborn and hate when they have to give up their independence. And they can be lazy. In order for a Taurus to find love, they have to decide that they really want it and then appeal to their finely-tuned logic to understand that if it’s something they want, they have to open up to it. Other people are not the enemy. They are not trying to steal something from you or make your life more inefficient. Those are just normal bumps in the road and you have to decide it’s worth it — or be content being single.

Geminis are energetic and imaginative. They never lose their sense of childlike wonder and are happy to be constantly learning and discovering new things about the world. The charisma of the Gemini is irreplaceable. These people tend to spark moments of light in others’ lives. They are oftentimes drifters, seeking out interactions with others no matter where they end up.
Yet, for that reason, Gemini find it hard to settle in one place. They are constantly imagining the what-ifs in life, and if they have the means, they will give chase to those fantasies. Such restlessness is the major pivot point for how their relationships will wind up. The person they love today might not be the same person tomorrow.
This is not necessarily a bad thing. It simply means that the Gemini must find a soul who is as romantic and wistful as they are. If you are Gemini who can’t find love, you have to overcome your uncertainty.
(June 22nd to July 22nd)
At their best, a Cancer is loyal, reliable, adaptable and compassionate. You can count on a Cancer to be there for you when you need them most. Yet, they are also known to be too responsive to the emotions of others. Driven people, a Cancer will do what it takes to get things accomplished, but they also actively seek out encouragement from others. For this very reason, they are a sign of paradoxes..
However, every Cancer needs to spend time working on themselves and maturing before they get into a relationship. If they jump in before they have learned to be confident in themselves, they are insecure and overly needy when it comes to the praise and affection of their partner. And when they don’t get it, they sulk instead of communicating.
It’s really only because a Cancer gives so much of themselves in a relationship that they need to take this extra time to make sure they are ready to be healthy in one. They don’t casually date and so the intensity of their love requires pre-work.
(July 23rd to August 22nd)
Leos are creative and driven. They are generally smarter than average and typically become successful, even if they plug away behind the scenes for a long time beforehand. What Leos struggle with is getting the recognition they need for their talents. Because of this, they prefer relationships to being single, even if they relationship leaves much to be desired.
Therefore, a Leo needs to understand one thing when it comes to relationships: Demanding admiration from others can come off as controlling. Passion is great, but sometimes a level-headed, rational view of the world is what will make a relationship work.
(August 23rd to September 22nd)
Hardworking and practical, Virgos make great partners for almost anyone. People like to have them in their life because they always add value to it by being the one who will make plans, find the best restaurants, fix your budget — figure out how to maximize every area of life.
But the overwhelming logic of the Virgo is often their worst enemy. Perfectionism can consume them. They will stick to a routine, becoming involuntarily dispassionate, rigid and uncompromising. Should someone not live up to their expectations, they will become short-tempered. Nit-picking is not one of Virgo’s finer qualities. In fact, it ends up being the determiner for how their relationships play out.
Love for Virgos does not come quick. A Virgo with an open mind is much more capable of finding love than those that cling to their set approximations of the world. In short, Virgos need to learn flexibility.
(September 23rd to October 22nd)
Gracious and diplomatic, Libras almost always possess a high social IQ. They are incredibly skilled at making and keeping relationships — so why do they struggle with finding The One?
They dislike confrontation and can carry a grudge.
This is a good quality disquised as a bad quality, they simply want their relationship to be harmonious. Libras need to learn that in order to be happy, they need to bite the bullet and confront issues head on. Don’t let it build up until you are past the point of no return. Those conversations will never be as hard in real life as you think they will be in your head, and you’ll save yourself a lot of time and frustration.
(October 23rd to November 22nd)
Scorpios are the kind of people that tend to be either loved or hated — rare is the person who has lukewarm feelings about a Scorpio. Confident and passionate, they are champions of the people they love (and feared by the people they hate). They also tend to be the best sex partner in the Zodiac.
Scorpio’s fatal relationship flaw, however, is this same passion. They can be jealous, obsessive and manipulative. They need to be right, they need to win every argument, they need to be not just loved but revered by their partner. It can be a bit much.
In order to move forward and find a healthy, lasting relationship they need to focus on finding someone who will balance out their personality — not challenge it. Fellow water signs Pisces and Cancer are a good place to start. They have no issues opening up and being vulnerable, so there’s no need for a Scorpio’s jealousy to make an appearance. The Scorpio will feel secure in the love they are receiving, and meet their potential as a partner.
(November 23rd to December 21st)
A Sagittarius will generally be the funniest person in their social circle, so they don’t have a problem attracting people into their lives. They are fun-loving and adventurous but without the normal accompanying flaw of being restless and unhappy when they aren’t constantly stimulated.
The problem is that along with this humor and outgoing-ness can be a lack of tact that puts people off — especially between Sagittarius men and women from more sensitive signs. It’s far too easy for a well-meaning Sagittarius to hurt someone without meaning to. What’s fair game for them, is too far for others.
They either need to wait around for someone with thick skin, or learn to increase the amount of assurance and affection they give their partner so that these minor misunderstandings don’t keep ending potentially good relationships.
(December 22nd to January 20th)
Capricorns are independent and adept. People like them because they are smart and usually pretty successful in life. They know how to work hard and achieve what they want to.
In love, however, they are less adept. They can be cold and nagging and frankly, dating a Capricorn can get quite boring. They need to learn how to be more imaginative, more open, and less inhibited. When in a relationship, consider keeping the spark alive part of the work of being successful there — treat it like a business opportunity and schedule exciting dates and nights to try new things with your loved one.
(January 21st to February 18th)
Smart, funny, and completely original, Aquarians are compelling individuals. They lead non-profits, become politicians, write life-changing books — they inspire everyone else to be better. But this doesn’t make them good at relationships.
Aquarians are their own biggest obstacle on the road to love. They dislike emotional expression and can feel trapped in the confines of commitment. In order to get a relationship to work, they need to be with someone who won’t smother them — who will encourage them to be as individual and independent as they desire (and won’t feel insecure about it).
An Aquarian should only be willing to date other deeply individual and independent people. They should select deep-thinkers who are too wise to be thrown off by the lack of affection that might accompany an important work project, or an election. A Sagittarius or a Gemini will solve this problem.
(February 19th to March 20th)
Compassionate, loving, and devoted Pisces are a sought after partner — when they are bold enough to make other people realize how valuable they are. While they possess a myriad of qualities that make them desirable, they can also be shy and meek and those qualities go unnoticed.
Pisces, unfortunately, often bring about their own ruin because of their super-sensitivity. Emotions run deep like water in this sign. They are influenced by how their close friends feel, and they might find themselves questioning their own identity should they try to aid another in finding theirs. A Pisces that does not know how to use their compassion deftly will soon become a martyr.
Developing strength in character is the main hurdle Pisces must overcome to find love. A partner whose sense of self is strong would do right by Pisces by bolstering their confidence.
