At some point, usually after the novelty has worn off and we’re halfway through the book or movie, we all want to know how it ends. In life, this usually happens after the rush of the teen years and sometimes into the 20s when things start to settle down and maybe look a bit bleak depending on where we are in life. And with every relationship we have, we start wondering how it will end sooner or later. This could be because a previous one ended badly and we want to brace ourselves for the flood of pain we are certain is headed our way. Or it could be that we’re so happy that we don’t think it’s real and need the reminder that it could end to help anchor us down into reality.
At any rate, the sad truth is that we can’t see into the future to know how life will turn out. There are little ways that we can get clues about the potential ending in store for us though. Skip to the second to last page for example, or look up our Zodiac anniversaries to see what potential mayhem awaits us.
16 Fire Signs These — Couples Burn With Desire
The Zodiac calendar traditionally starts with a Fire sign and spring begins with a particularly powerful Fire sign as well. The Fire signs are the powerhouses of the Zodiac calendar, and they fuel our ideas, populate our competitive sports and career fields; they exhaust us with their boundless waves of energy. They can be a riot to live with but at the same time, they can be a struggle to live with since they all want things to go exactly their way and they don’t accept challenges, suggestions or helpful criticism very well.
The Fire signs consist of: Aries, who is cardinal and begins the cycle; Leo, who is fixed and steadies things; and Sagittarius, who is mutable and ends the cycle.
According to Astrology Zodiac Signs, “The biggest challenge for anyone guided by the element of Fire is to remain calm and peaceful along the way. With a strong need to move forward, people born with an ascendant or many planets in Fire tend to forget that passive approach is needed as much as an active one. Therapy could do miracles here, for they don’t lack awareness or the excitement when they learn something new and get an opportunity to save or recycle some of their wasted energy.”
15 Aries: These Couples Will Love Hard And Fight Harder
Aries comes into play between March 21st and April 19th. They are represented by the ram which is fierce, independent and completely suited to this sign. Aries is known for being impatient and impulsive as well as enthusiastic, passionate and honest. Finding an Aries lover is always a wild ride, and the resulting relationship is often be described by onlookers as a whirlwind. When a couple chooses to get married in the Aries season, their anniversary date is an Aries which can impact the overall relationship to some degree.
Regardless of what each person’s personal sign is, together they make up an Aries, and the biggest challenge an Aries couple will face will be competing with each other. All’s fun in love and war till someone takes it too far. A cool spin to give this competitive edge would be to see who can wash the most dishes or complete all the items on their to-do list to earn a nice romantic reward. According to Brides, “Aries is a very adventurous, bold, and independent sign. If you tie the knot during this time you'll thrive as individuals and not risk losing sight of yourselves in the relationship. Your marriage will be filled with lots of spontaneity, too.”
14 Leo: Your Relationship Will Be A Rollercoaster Until The End
Leo storms through between July 23rd and August 22nd, right at the height and heat of summer. With the lion as the representing symbol, this sign is fixed, steady and ready to get things done. Leo is best known for being creative, passionate, arrogant and inflexible which makes for an interesting blend when it comes to a couple. Both will be powerhouses in this regard, full of enthusiasm, eagerness to solve problems and a flair for the dramatic (even if it’s the I-hate-drama type of dramatic; they’ll create their own personal drama and keep it to themselves).
This can be entertaining but after awhile, it could prove to be their undoing as a couple.
People, particularly non-dramatic signs, can only take so much drama after a while and Leos also tend toward the bossy end of the spectrum. Leo is a powerhouse couple. According to Your Tango, “Leo season marriages are not something that everyone can handle, but no one can deny that they aren’t incredibly exciting. You’re known as the trend-setters not just because of your beautiful home and matching outfits, but because of your strong bond. And not only is excitement vital to you but so are romantic love affairs.”
13 Sagittarius: There Will Be Reward, But Not Without Risk
Sagittarius comes to party between November 22nd and December 21st, with the archer as their representing sign. They arrive right around the holidays and have the endless energy, enthusiasm and socialness to enjoy every holiday party they are dragged to and then some. They are best known for being impatient, saying anything no matter how bad it sounds and their massive sense of humor (which the in-laws might not always understand). The Sagittarius couple will be down for almost anything and will be the ones who go on extravagant vacations to exotic locations every year.
However, their downfall will be their enthusiasm as they will tend to take risks and aren’t the best at managing their money. If the stock market suddenly crashes, Sagittarius will likely be hit hard for some of their risky investments. On the flipside, this is another powerhouse couple with the energy and willpower to pull through most of what life will throw at them so they likely won’t stay down for long. According to Brides, “The Sagittarius couple is very outgoing, adventurous, and worldly. There will most likely be a lot of travel in your future. You're constantly learning and taking classes together, and you're both incredibly open-minded as well.”
12 Water Signs — These Couples Will Need To Learn To Go With The Flow Before They Go Up In Flames
The Water signs are mysterious. They can lure us in with their calm peaceful brooks and streams, promising sweetness, understanding — all the while dark secrets, raging passions and hidden emotions lurk in the unfathomable depths beneath. And if pressed, water can become a force of nature to be reckoned with and we will likely lose the battle as we’re swept away by an uncontrollable tidal wave of emotion.
A Water sign begins summer, which is amusing considering that most of us flock to bodies of water during the heat of the summer season.
The Water signs are the emotional signs, being more in touch with how they feel than any of the other signs. According to Astrology Zodiac Signs, “Signs belonging to the element of Water are Cancer, Scorpio, also, Pisces. This makes the entire need of this element a bit complicated, for the ruler of Cancer falls in Scorpio, and Pisces seem to be there to hide its body. Perhaps this is the greatest task of all, for each of us to embrace emotion, accept the negative as much as the positive, anger and sadness as much as love.”
11 Cancer: The Risk Of Becoming Shut-Ins Runs High
Cancer arrives between June 21st and July 22nd, right at the beginning of summer. They are represented by the crab which is very fitting as these signs tend to have hard exteriors and soft gooey insides, prizing their homes and security above other things like fashion or adventure. They are best known for being moody, pessimistic, sympathetic and loyal.
Once a Cancer falls in love, it’s pretty much a done deal and a Cancer couple will be all over each other. They will do literally everything together but will likely prefer to be at home alone the majority of the time.
Their home is their priority and where they feel the safest and happiest. This homey clingy-ness can backfire on this couple, however, when they become too much for each other. An occasional nice dose of the outside world with other people is a healthy idea for the Cancer couple. As Brides can confirm, “Home is where the heart is for Cancers. You really like to pamper your husband (and vice versa). Cooking together is another shared interest. And don't be surprised if you have a lot of cutesy nicknames for each other. The danger Cancers face is getting a little too wrapped up as a couple and becoming homebodies.”
10 Scorpio: Jealousy May Put A Dagger In The Heart Of This Union
Scorpios arrive between October 23rd and November 21st, the tail end of the autumn season right before all the holidays begin and everyone fills up their social calendars with parties, shopping — other events. Represented by the scorpion, Scorpios are known for being clever, suspicious, stubborn, passionate and loyal. A Scorpio couple will be something of a powerhouse and will get things done, but their downfall will be their tendency to keep their feelings hidden till it’s too late.
Once jealousy has taken root, it can be hard to rip out, and unfounded feelings of jealousy can destroy the strongest of marriages if allowed to fester for too long.
Scorpios need to talk things out and curb their darker sides for success. Once they do get those tendencies under control, they can outlast any couple in the romance department for decades. As Brides puts it, “Scorpio is an extremely [sultry] and intense sign. There's bound to be a ton of intimacy and passion in your marriage, and you should have no problem keeping the romance alive over the years. Scorpio is also a sign of power and control though, so jealousy issues can crop up down the line.”
9 Pisces: When The Going Gets Tough, This Duo Often Checks Out
Pisces slides in between February 19th and March 20th, at the end of winter when everything is all mushy and muddy but still chilly before the warmth and growth of spring arrives. Pisces is represented by the fish, and this is suiting as they can change direction with the flick of an eyelash and dive to the deep dark depths of their emotions before anyone can blink. Pisces is best known for being indecisive, inconsistent, intuitive and compassionate.
As a couple, this sign will be understanding of each other's hard days as well as supportive during the good days. Their downside, however, will be their tendency to prefer fantasy over reality to the point where they can’t tell the difference anymore and fights break out over who is right and who is wrong.
According to Your Tango, “If anyone can make marriage look like a romantic movie where everything goes right, it’s a Pisces marriage. Not only are you two totally in love, but to be quite honest, you’re the closest thing to soulmates there is. You always try to inject a little romance into your everyday lives, whether that means breakfast in bed, [kissing] like teenagers or just using your words to express how much you love each other.”
8 Earth Signs — These Couples Are Easily Stifled By Life's Demands
The Earth signs are the rooted grounded and often sane members of the Zodiac calendar. They provide the building blocks and sturdy support needed for Fire to burn wild, Water to nourish and rest, and an anchor for Air that keeps them linked to reality. Earth is always taken for granted until one day it is nowhere to be found and everyone is left hanging in the void, wondering what happened.
The Earth signs consist of: Capricorn, who is responsible; Taurus, who is reliable; and Virgo, who is steady.
Each sign has a role to play in their daily lives, and each one has their own strengths and weaknesses to balance out.
According to Astrology Zodiac Signs, “Earth represents matter itself, our physical body, and with it our finances, the food we eat, and our daily routine. Strongly set in their ways, individuals with this element accented have a tendency to give in to an unchangeable routine for years, sometimes too scared to get out of it. In a challenging mode, they will stick to habits that don’t make them happy just because they are convinced they have to or stay at a job because of financial security, while completely neglecting their intelligence and creativity.”
7 Capricorn: Living In The Present Is No Small Task For This Pair
Capricorn rules from December 22nd to January 19th and is represented by the goat which is rather fitting as goats take to the hardest untrodden paths and still reach the top of the mountain at the end of the day. Capricorns are known for being responsible, hard-working, unforgiving and condescending. They are rooted in tradition and tend to be very strict and conservative as couples and parents.
This sign as an anniversary sign will give us a power couple capable of working long hours selflessly to achieve their goal, but at the cost of their present happiness and togetherness. Looking to the future is always a good idea but when that elusive future consumes us and leaves us neglecting our present and constantly comparing the ideal of our future to the bleakness of the past, we will suffer, and that will be this sign’s downfall as a couple.
According to Brides, “Capricorn is the sign of tradition, which is why this winter wedding typically happens around Christmastime or the New Year. You and your hubby are all about legacy and honoring your heritage. You love celebrating the holidays and carrying on traditions from your childhood.”
6 Taurus: You'll Bury Yourselves In A Rut — And Not All Will Make It Out Together
Taurus arrives on the scene between April 20th and May 20th, with the bull as their representing sign. This is particularly fitting as Taurus is the most grounded, rooted and stubborn of all the signs. They do not like change and are known for being loyal, patient, possessive and uncompromising.
As individuals, they can make or break a relationship with their traits, but as a couple sign, they will tend to be one of the strongest couples around. That is until their own tendency to resist change and stay in a nice little routine stabs them in the back, and they find themselves stuck in a rut that has lasted for years.
Changing up their routine occasionally will be good for the Taurus couple.
According to Your Tango, “Weddings during the Taurus season tend to produce some of the most down-to-earth couples out there. You rarely have relationship problems that you can’t fix, and you don’t get caught up in what the perfect marriage should be; you just try to make your own marriage perfect. There will definitely be times when you find yourselves acting more stubborn than usual, but it’s only because you don’t want to go to bed angry.”
5 Virgo: Your Criticism Will Chip Away At Your Love
Virgos are born between August 23rd and September 22nd, with the virgin as their representing sign. While not always virgins, this sign is one of the calmer of the Zodiac signs and can quietly work wonders from the back of the stage while the shinier signs take the lead roles. Virgos are best known for being loyal, critical, kind and very shy. It can take a long time to get a Virgo to open up about how they feel, but once they’re caught, they are in the relationship for the long haul.
As a couple, they will have the drive and attention to detail to get things done and keep their house very neat and tidy. But their downfall will likely be their tendency for control and focusing too much on the little details to the point of hyper-criticism which no one likes.
As Brides puts it, “Virgo is an extremely organized, refined, and healthy sign. You and your husband pay attention to the little things, and you're all about the details. He's your cheerleader, and you're his, which is why helping each other outcomes so naturally. Though you may get stuck focusing on your problems and lose sight of the bigger picture since you can be a bit nitpicky.”
4 Air Signs — These Couples May Forget To Come Up For Air
Air is one of those tricky elements. It can either cool us down on a hot summer day with a timely breeze or destroy our entire lives with the force of a hurricane or tornado in the blink of an eye. Like Water, Air should never be taken for granted or underestimated.
They may be the sweetest signs around until they are pushed to their limits and then they lose all control and vanish with a puff of dust.
The Air signs consist of: Libra, who is cardinal and begins autumn; Aquarius, who is fixed and holds winter hostage; and Gemini, who is mutable and mushes up the end of spring.
According to Astrology Zodiac Signs, “This is the element that connects all other elements, even though it might seem less relevant, invisible as it is. The distance from the nature of Earth lifts us up high, in impractical and mental planes that don’t satisfy our physical needs. Still, this is the element that can be found in all others, keeps the fire going just like the Sun burns hydrogen. We may say that the beginning of life wouldn’t be possible without Fire, but there would be no Fire on our planet without Air.”
3 Libra: The Air Gets Thick When You Don't Let Each Other Breathe
Libra arrives between September 23rd and October 22nd, bringing with it balance and a fine sense of fashion as well as the welcome relief of autumn after the blistering heat of summer. Represented by the balancing scales, Libras spend their entire lives searching for a balance between their relationships, their emotions and everything else in their lives. They are best known for being diplomatic, indecisive, inconsistent and cooperative. As an individual, everyone wants to be around Libra and possibly married to Libra as they are the glue that holds the signs together often.
As a couple, Libra will be so into each other and in love that they will likely destroy themselves with their mutual clinginess. Therefore it is important for the Libra couple to get out and about on their own to keep a hold on their individuality. Besides, these solo adventures will then give the couple something exciting to discuss over another romantic dinner. According to Brides, “Libra is the sign that rules marriage. This is probably why October is one of the biggest wedding months. Libra marriages are, not surprisingly, very much about balance and give and take from both partners. The relationship is a real priority for you and your man.”
2 Aquarius: You'll Drown Your Union In Honey-Do Lists
Aquarius arrives between January 20th and February 18th, with the water-bearer as their representing sign. This can be confusing since they are an Air sign but they make it work. Aquarius is best known for being uncompromising, independent, temperamental and original. They do not like expressing their emotions and will often run from it if they have to, but once Aquarius has been landed, they will stick with the relationship for longer than previously thought. As a couple sign, Aquarius will be a weird, quirky blend of everything and nothing with their own unique way of communicating and handling stress.
The problem with this couple, however, will be that they find themselves with a lack of couple time.
With so much going on in their lives, connecting as a couple alone will be hard for them to prioritize. According to Your Tango, “When it comes to Aquarius marriages, there’s “marriage rules,” and then there’s “Aquarius rules.” The only thing you hate more than listening to other people’s opinions of your marriage is playing by the rules. You believe that since it’s your life, then it’s also your marriage — and no one else gets to say otherwise, no ifs, ands or buts.”
1 Gemini: Constant Adrenaline Does Not Equal Lasting Love
Gemini arrives between May 21st and June 20th, with the sign being represented by twins. This fits their dual personality nicely though can often lead to confusion from the other signs. Gemini is best known for being inconsistent, indecisive, affectionate, unable to adapt easily. They love to explore new ideas and can change their plans on a dime which makes for some very interesting last minute dates.
As a couple, this sign will be highly into each other, exploring new ideas and adventures together. Their downfall will be this tendency to pursue adventure and excitement together to the point where they have stretched themselves so far that there isn’t time or energy left for simple couple time.
According to Your Tango, “Gemini season marriages tend to be reserved for the couples who are so close, they could be the same person. Marriage works best when you can be friends and lovers, but the two of you are friends for life. Not only do you love to do everything with each other, but you also know what the other is thinking at all times; this makes for a very intuitive and lasting relationship.”
