Relationships are not at all like hallmark movies, they take work; and if you choose to get into one, you need to do that work. You owe it to your partner. Of course, not everything is perfect. Often, we let our habits get the better of us and things get tough. So maybe, knowing our weaknesses in a relationship can help. You can spot when you’re doing something out of habit, and mend it before it’s too late. It’s like relationship advice for the future you.
So, we did exactly that. Here’s what different zodiac signs are capable of doing wrong in their relationships – and how to correct it:
1. Aries (March 21 – April 19)
The dynamic fire sign is known to be competitive. Often, this can bring up insecurities in a relationship. Of course, jealousy can be like a wildfire, so keep it in check. Trust your partner and give them space. Basically, be your fiery, passionate self, but don’t let your impulsive side rule your relationship. Take a breath before jumping into conflicts.
2. Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
The thing with Taureans is that they can get lazy in relationships. Too comfortable. Don’t wait for your partner to do all the heavy lifting; take the lead sometimes. Also, get excited about your relationship by setting some fun goals together, like traveling to new places or learning a new hobby as a team.
3. Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
This air sign is always in a rush to accomplish multiple pursuits. It’s like they’re omnipresent, because they’d do anything to achieve perfection. Of course, this also means that they take a lot of pressure in keeping a relationship perfect – which cannot always be the case. Overanalyzing every detail can be too much; and you need to stop being in a relationship alone. Take help.
4. Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Like the crab, this water sign is always treading two worlds – and they do it well. Only, they end up trying too hard to protect their emotions that it ends up as bad communication. Say things. You don’t have to spill your entire heart in one go. Begin with a simple, “I love you,” or “I appreciate you.”
5. Leo (July 23 – August 22)
There’s such a thing as too much spotlight. Despite being worth all the attention, Leo tends to overdo it. This just means that you can easily forget that there’s a partner in your relationship. Maybe don’t hoard all that attention and notice your partner every once in a while. It’s cool to be the lion, but even lions have their humble moments.
6. Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Virgo is a Earth sign, and it makes sense because they’re rooted as people. This also makes them quite efficient and good at whatever they do – even if that means doing things in a relationship. Of course, relationships are not a project and you shouldn’t look at them like that. So, give your partner some time to catch up, and try not to rush them.
7. Libra (September 23 – October 22)
The Libra energy is all about finding balance, which is sweet. However, it isn’t always helpful when it comes to decision making and they tend to end up juggling with the pros and cons. Libra, loosen up a bit and don’t leave your partner in the dark. Share your thoughts and feelings, even if they’re a bit muddled.
8. Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
The intense and mysterious vibe of a Scorpio can be a great start to a relationship. However, the energy goes down with time, and you eventually need them a partner who shares things. Your secret agent persona is cool, but in a relationship, you NEED to talk. Know that your partner can’t read your mind.
9. Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
A Sagittarius can definitely promise you a fairy-tale romance, and they’re quite capable. It’s the moodiness of this fire sign that makes them back out from these promises. You should know that being in a relationship is not a competition – so don’t hide away your vulnerabilities. Let your partner know who you are – you owe them that.
10. Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
This sign can be like a rollercoaster, hot one minute, ice-cold the next. They’re too practical to know or understand emotions which isn’t a great trait for a romance. Life’s too short for petty fights. Instead of being nitpicky, focus on the bigger picture and enjoy the ride. Your partner is human too, so just be a little less unforgiving.
11. Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
An Aquarian loves their independence – so much so that they find most relationships suffocating. It’s important to rely on your partner, through. If you’re used to taking the lead, be patient with your partner when they want to share the stage. It’s all about finding that sweet balance between your independence and being a loving, considerate partner.
12. Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Pisces are like healers in a relationship; and as much as it sounds nice, it can be unhealthy, especially for you. It’s great to care, but you don’t have to fix everything and everyone. Sometimes, just being there to listen is enough. Don’t be a therapist for your partner, just recommend them one, and protect yourself first.
Or well, break up.
