We’re all prone to making mistakes in relationships, and often these hiccups can be linked back to our zodiac signs.
This isn’t to say that the stars are the puppet masters pulling our strings, but rather, they provide a framework for understanding our deepest tendencies and quirks.
So, come on this cosmic journey with me as we explore the biggest relationship mistakes each zodiac sign tends to make.
Maybe, just maybe, we can help you sidestep these pitfalls, or at least understand them a bit better!
1) Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Your fiery enthusiasm, Aries, is a double-edged sword.
In your eagerness to get things going, you may rush your partner or push them beyond their comfort zone.
Here’s the thing to remember:
Relationships require a delicate dance of getting to know each other, understanding boundaries, and gradually developing trust.
Take your time and enjoy the journey, rather than racing towards the destination!
2) Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
If you’re a Taurus, you’re probably known for your stubbornness, which is just a manifestation of your strong will and determination.
However, your rigidity can make your partner feel unheard or unimportant in a relationship.
I had an ex once who was a Taurus…He was a great guy, but man did he annoy everyone (including myself) by always trying to make a point!
So, how can you avoid making this mistake in your relationship?
Learn to loosen your grip on ‘being right’ and welcome a compromise.
This doesn’t mean you’re giving in, but rather that you’re honoring the value of your partner’s perspective!
3) Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Next up is our witty and funny friends – Geminis. You guys are great fun to be around but in a relationship?
Your restless nature and desire for constant change can often send mixed signals in a relationship.
Here’s the thing:
This can leave your partner unsure of where they stand, which can lead to frustration for both of you!
So, why not try the following:
Practice expressing your thoughts and feelings more clearly, and find ways to make your need for change coexist with your need for a loving, stable relationship.
4) Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Dear Cancer, you have an amazing ability to love and nurture, but you also tend to hold onto emotional hurts like a crab with its claw (see what I did there?).
This can lead to resentment and inhibit the healing process.
As a fellow Cancer myself, I understand.
It takes us a while (and that’s putting it mildly) to let go of a grudge or forget someone’s wrongdoings against us – especially when we’re in love.
I’ve found that it’s best to let go of past hurts and offer forgiveness.
This will not only lighten your emotional load but also help you build stronger and healthier relationships in the long run!
5) Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Leo, your radiant personality commands attention, but this can sometimes become a need for constant admiration in a relationship…
It’s essential that you recognize that your partner also needs to be seen, heard, and cherished, otherwise, they’ll quickly seek attention elsewhere…
So, before it gets to that point, it’s a good idea to practice active listening and show interest in your partner’s world.
When both partners shine, the relationship glows even brighter (excuse the cheesiness, but it’s true!).
6) Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Next up we have the creative and kind Virgo…
Want to know the biggest mistake you’ll likely make in a relationship?
Well, it all comes down to your high standards!
The truth is, this can sometimes translate into criticism and nit-picking in a relationship.
That’s why it’s important to remember – everyone is a mix of strengths and flaws, including yourself.
So, instead of focusing on your partner’s imperfections, celebrate their unique qualities and show them that you love them just the way they are!
7) Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Lovely Libra, your desire for harmony often leads you to avoid conflicts. I feel you on this, as a Cancer, I’m not too keen on arguments either!
However, not all conflicts are harmful.
In fact, they can be opportunities for growth and understanding in a relationship.
Want to know what works for me (and could help you too)?
Practice communicating your concerns openly and honestly, even if it disrupts the peace momentarily.
And remind yourself that everything will be okay, better even, once all feelings are out in the open!
8) Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Vastly different from Libra, Scorpios are known for being brave and honest.
But in relationships? You guys can be resentful when you want to be! And this intensity extends to your emotions, including the negative ones.
Put it this way:
You’re not one to forgive and forget easily, which can create lingering tension in a relationship.
Here’s what will help you avoid making mistakes when in love:
Learn the art of letting go.
It doesn’t mean you’re ignoring the wrongs done to you; instead, it means you’re choosing to focus on the future rather than being anchored in the past.
9) Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Oh, Sagittarius, your love for freedom can sometimes lead you to shy away from commitment.
However, it’s important to keep in mind that a committed relationship doesn’t have to feel like a cage.
It can be a beautiful union where both partners respect each other’s independence while sharing a deep bond.
Don’t let your fear of losing freedom prevent you from experiencing this.
Instead, be open and communicative. Put healthy boundaries in place. Be clear about what you want, but be respectful to your partner at the same time!
10) Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Next up on the biggest mistake your Zodiac sign makes in a relationship is Capricorn…
Let me start by saying, your unwavering focus on your goals is admirable.
But here’s the thing, in a relationship, it can make your partner feel secondary.
So, my advice?
It’s crucial to strike a balance between your professional ambitions and your personal life.
Relationships require time, care, and attention—making room for them can enrich your life in ways you never expected!
11) Aquarius (January 20 – February 18
As an Aquarius, your independent spirit can sometimes translate into emotional aloofness. This will be your biggest downfall when falling in love…
Because while it might be your defense mechanism, in a relationship, it can create distance.
But don’t worry, you don’t have to bare your soul all at once!
Gradually opening up and showing vulnerability can strengthen the bond and lead to deeper intimacy in your relationship, so start small and go from there.
12) Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
And finally, we turn our attention to Pisces.
I’m going to be honest here – your deeply empathetic nature is one to be admired, but it can sometimes lead you to lose yourself in your partner.
You tend to put their needs and desires before your own, which can lead to a loss of self-identity over time. Do you know what this leads to?
So, how can you avoid making this mistake in your relationships?
By maintaining your own individuality and personal boundaries. Look out for your partner, but remember don’t neglect yourself in the process!
After all, balance is key.
