There are a lot of outside forces and factors which affect our relationships, from how we were raised to how our day at work was to how much Venus versus Mars we have in our birthday. All of these factors plus a great many more add up in little — often invisible —ways that affect our relationships with our partners and the people around us. When we become aware of these effects and the impact they have on our thoughts, habits and reactions, we can begin to change them for the better.
If we take the time to look up our partner’s astro sign and watch his or her habits, we can begin to see a pattern forming and might get a better idea of why they react to certain things the way they do. While not everyone will fit their sign to a tee, they can fit it just enough for us to go, “Oh, I get it now.” From there, it’s just a matter of observation and readjusting our behaviors around them. To help simplify the long, intensive Google search, here is a nice list that contains the pertinent information just for you. So grab a cup of coffee and maybe a notepad and start researching your sign or your partner’s for more knowledge on them.
20 Water Logged Way Of Life
For many people, water has a deep, calming effect on us. We can stick our feet in the ocean, sit near a waterfall, or stand in the rain and begin to feel calmer and more relaxed. Our energy levels change and we can refocus easily. The signs for water are Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces. According to Astrology Zo. Signs,
“Typical representatives of the element of Water have often been said to be too emotional. They could deal with a lot of anguish before they realize that there is no such thing.
Their sensitivity and fragile nature make them perfect for advisors and compassionate therapists, helping those with deep emotional problems.”
19 Sagittarius Fears Commitment
Sagittarius people are known for their sense of humor, lack of diplomacy, and deep love of freedom. They are the wanderers and travellers. Born between November 22 and December 21, you will have a hard time pinning down a Sagittarius simply because they don’t want to be pinned down. On top of that, Elite Daily says the holidays could get dicey.
“However, your need for attention and your uncensored humor will backfire the moment your partner decides to take you home for the holidays.
You will be so excited and eager to impress the family that you will push it a little too far.”
18 Capricorn Has Ambitions
Capricorns are known for being responsible, hard-working, and very traditional. They have ambitions and want to succeed — whatever the cost. If you were born between December 22 and January 19, then you are a Capricorn, and in your relationship, you need to watch your ambitions. As Allure says,
“Capricorns are known for their ambition — they're frequently described as workaholics, in fact — and when they're in a relationship, they expect their lover's drive to either match or exceed their own.
While the ‘power couple’ thing can be fun, when one partner pushes the other into it, resentment and discontent arise.”
17 Get Windblown
We all know that air is vital to life, but we take it for granted. The minute we can’t breathe is when we suddenly begin to appreciate air. When the signs for air are in our life, we take them for granted in many ways and feel their absence keenly when they finally leave us for someone who won’t take them for granted. These signs are Libra, Aquarius and Gemini. According to Astrology Zo. Signs, “Their main goal in life is often just to stop pleasing others and worrying about their opinions, so they can be able to follow their brightest and most liberating ideas.”
16 Tongue-Tied Aquarius Isn't That Smooth
Aquarius people (especially men) have a hard time verbally expressing their emotions and will remain aloof rather than run the risk of getting tongue-tied and saying something stupid to the most important person in their life. They are also stubborn and uncompromising. Born between January 20 and February 18, Aquarius is a unique blend of air and water. According to Insider,
“People born under the Aquarius sign tend to be stubborn and independent. Because of this, they don't love commitment, so it may be tough to enter a relationship with one.
But for especially patient partners, Aquarians are well worth the wait.”
15 Financially Unstable Pisces Can Land You In A Pickle
If you were born between February 19 and March 20, then you are a Pisces. You are known for being creative, gentle, wise, and very daydreamy. You don’t handle the harsh reality of life super well, so you make up your own version. One of your bigger faults is irresponsibility handling money. You should have a stable partner to do that for you. As Bustle says,
“They are not particularly concerned with money, and in most aspects of their lives, they tend to go with the flow.
This may make them low-drama in some departments, but it doesn’t benefit them when it comes to their finances.”
14 Impatient Aries Won't Wait For You
There is a reason that Aries begins the astro calendar. You like to be first and in the lead. This can come in handy, but it can also make you very impatient. Born between March 21 and April 19, you are also impulsive, passionate, aggressive, and brutally honest. Bustle says to watch out for selfishness. “Uh-oh, Aries — your desire to have the world revolve around you might get you into trouble, because relationships are all about compromise. Aries needs to look out for selfishness. If you don't want to include anybody else in decision-making, then maybe you should just have a relationship with yourself.”
13 All Who Are Earth-Bound
Earth surrounds us and nourishes us. Plants grow in it, animals eat the plants and live on the Earth, and we often have gardens for food or pleasure. Being connected to the Earth grounds us and keeps us anchored to reality and the priorities in life. The signs for Earth are Capricorn, Taurus, and Virgo. According to Astrology Zo. Signs,
“The biggest challenge Earth has to face is the recognition of something as fast, unstable, and transparent as Air.
Earthlings out of balance need to shake off their stiff habits, make changes to their life and their routine without regret, and stop questioning every decision they’ve already made.”
12 Taurus Doesn’t Compromise
Taurus has many good things going for them. If we want to settle down in a long-term committed relationship and have kids, the Taurus is the way to go. You aren’t easily fazed by frivolities and nonsense, and you don’t like drama. But you do have some faults. With a spring arrival between April 20 and May 20, you are intensely stubborn and jealous and don’t compromise. According to Bustle,
“Plus, all that stubbornness can make Taurus resistant to change, which has a serious impact, beyond just stunting a relationship's growth.
Taurus' fear of change and/or being wrong can stifle their professional and spiritual growth.”
11 Restless Gemini Needs More Than You Can Give
Gemini babies are natural-born social butterflies. You are more than capable of juggling multiple activities at once without losing your cool, and you have a lot of friends. Unfortunately, though, you lack the commitment and attention-span for long-term things like relationships and 5-year plans. Born between May 21 and June 20, you can become restless in relationships. According to Your Tango,
“As a Gemini, your mind is constantly changing. You find it difficult to set your sights on one particular thing or one particular person.
You’re ruining your relationships by thinking the grass might be greener somewhere else, instead of watering where you are right this moment.”
10 Clingy Cancer Won't Let Go
Cancer is born between June 21 and July 22. You are the natural-born mother — nurturing everyone around you and taking care of anyone who needs your help (even if they don’t ask for it). Because you are an emotional Water sign, you tend to be moody, clingy, and just a tad manipulative.
If you aren’t careful, you can drive away the most important people in your life with your clinginess.
As Your Tango points out, “Oh Cancer, so emotional and so loving are you. Unfortunately, you can get really clingy and project an attitude of being overly needy. Try to give your partner some breathing room or you'll suffocate them.”
9 Burnt By Fire
Fire is all power and destruction, but fire does have a softer side. Gentle candles can light up a dark room. They are the Fire powerhouses are Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius. According to Astrology Zo. Signs,
“This is the first element with strong masculine energy, and it easily neglects the feminine principles within, burning everything around a person and making all the Water in their body and life evaporate.
A life without love isn’t worth living, and in order to make them happier, all fiery people have to respect their emotional side and acknowledge their emotional needs.”
8 Egotistical Leo Loves Themselves
Leo is one of the astro powerhouses and for good reason. You can enter almost any room and spot the Leo immediately. They tend to stand out and radiate light around them. If you were born between July 23 and August 22, then you are a Leo and you have a big personality. But you are also very dramatic, egotistical, and selfish. As Elite Daily points out,
“You're ambitious, and you crave someone just as powerful as you are. So what's the trouble with all this? You consider yourself the most amazing creature in the world, so you think you deserve the most amazing creature in the world.
You're just always looking for better.”
7 Critical Virgo Comes Down Hard
Virgos are known for being goal-oriented and very detail-oriented to the point where they micromanage everything. With a birthday between August 23 and September 22, Virgos have a controlling tendency, seek perfection to the point where they exhaust themselves and are very critical of themselves and others. If this sounds like your partner, you’d better stock up on patience and wine. According to Bustle,
“It's totally unrealistic to expect your partner to never mess up, and it puts a serious strain on the relationship.
Virgo's need to have everything perfect can also mean they tend to be controlling — they hate the idea of someone else taking the wheel and potentially messing things up.”
6 Libra Can’t Decide
Libras are known for their legendary indecision and for good reason. Born between September 23 and October 22, you like shiny things, new things and people, so you bounce between them all — when pressed to pick your favorite or settle down with just one, you end up freezing. According to Elite Daily,
“Libras, 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.”
5 Scorpio Keeps Secrets
Scorpios are a special sign. Born between October 23 and November 20, you are bracketed by an indecisive sign and a dramatic one on both sides. You tend to be secretive, which can strain a relationship, and you detest lies to the point where even little ones can cause trouble. Having control is very important to you, and you like loyalty in your connections — especially in your family circles and romantic relationships. Allure says,
“If they fear their partner isn't equally invested in the relationship, they can become paranoid and possessive.
Scorpios may even create conflict to test their lover's devotion, toxic behavior that often backfires.”
4 Bonus: Sagittarius Longs For Adventure Over Everything Else
Because it is so crucial in a relationship, it bears repeating that Sagittarius is a free-spirit and rather shy of serious commitments. It is one thing to travel the world with your partner but an entirely different matter to settle down in one place and raise kids for the next 20 years. As Allure says,
“Sagittarians do not compromise when it comes to their wanderlust, so they expect their lovers to be their willing copilots.
But while cruising down the Amazon River with your mate is totally fabulous, most of us don't want to maintain an Indiana Jones lifestyle all the time; serious relationships are also about tackling daily realities together, even when they're mundane.”
3 Bonus: Gemini Says All The Wrong Things
Due to your indecisive dual nature, you will probably put your foot in your mouth at some point and wonder where you went wrong. You are irresistible to many of us so that we will forgive you most of the time. Elite Daily dramatically says,
“When you're faced with one person who could possibly make you happy for the rest of your days, you will mess it up.
Because you will be terrified to commit to him or her, and he or she will say, ‘Screw this, I can't handle this roller coaster. I deserve commitment, regardless of how charming you are!’ And he or she will walk away and never look back.”
2 Bonus: Pisces Isn't On The Same Planet
You like the little reality you created for yourself and you adore the new addition of your partner to it. But they live in a different reality from you, and when they most need you, you will flake out and swim away. You just aren’t the dependable, punctual, reliable type. According to Allure,
“Pisces operate in their own reality, and these dreamy Water signs can accordingly be a bit flaky and unreliable.
At the same time, it's nearly impossible to confront a Pisces with frustrations about their behavior. Since they lack emotional armor, their first move is to swim away.”
1 Bonus: Capricorn Works Way Too Hard
It has been said before and will be said again, Capricorn is a workaholic when their priorities are out of whack. This isn’t necessarily their fault, but they do have some control over this. When they aren’t trying to take over the world and rise through the ranks of their business, Capricorns are very family-oriented people. As Bustle points out,
“But if you're bored by your hardworking Capricorn partner, at least there's an explanation behind their work mania.
They're also extremely ambitious and power hungry, which isn't always a positive thing. Capricorn's obsessive need for establishment and rank can come across as selfish and merciless.”
