Anyone who’s been in a relationship knows that it’s not always rosy and things aren’t quite as romantic and colorful as one would like. We are creatures of habit and tend to stick to our habitual lifestyles or beliefs that don’t always align with our partner’s desires. And while some people may think they’re always right, it’s safe to say that anyone can get wise advice about their relationship.
Whether you believe in astrology or not, these tips may just help you in your current or future relationship. Here’s the best relationship advice for your zodiac sign!
Best Relationship Advice
Aries (March 21 – April 19):
Don’t try to outdo your partner.
There is a reason why we call our loved ones our partners. This is because you must be part of a team that works well together. But whoever is the competing fire sign Aries cannot coexist calmly with others, because he always wants to win. And this theory also applies to their relationship.
Trying to outdo your partner or constantly rejecting their ideas or opinions because you think you know best can lead to strife in your relationship.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20):
Don’t be afraid to shake things up.
As an earth sign, Taurus tends to be stable and monotonous in all areas of their lives, and getting them to try new things can be like pulling teeth.
If they’re used to spending every Sunday in bed with their partners, watching movies, and eating pastries, then you’d better believe they’d be hard to convince to do anything else.
Because they’re stuck in a rut, their relationship can become boring or stale, and Taurus will have to get out of their comfort zone to keep things fresh.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20):
Don’t Avoid Your Problems
Since Gemini is ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication, many might think that they are wizards at solving problems in their relationships. But, unfortunately, this is not the case. Geminis do a pretty ingenious job when it comes to dancing around their problems, and they often use their excellent communication skills to avoid talking about the problem.
They may try to change the subject or soften the situation with flattery, making their partner think the Gemini doesn’t take them seriously.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22):
Don’t let your relationship become one-sided.
As a water sign, Cancers tend to be very in tune with the emotions of themselves and others. This forces them to go into full parenting mode so that their partner feels adored and wrapped in care.
While this can be good, sometimes Cancers let their feelings and needs take a back seat. Outwardly tells his partner that they do not need anything, but at the same time, he is internally sad or even suffers from the fact that he lacks love and care.
Leo (July 23 – August 22):
Let your partner take the reins in their own hands.
Like Aries, the fire sign Leo likes to choose things their way. They believe they have the best ideas and tastes and tend to force it all on their partner. And while their preferences can usually be trusted, Leos need to understand that sometimes they have to let their partner take the reins if they want to stay on the same wavelength.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22):
Don’t be so critical.
Virgos can be the worst critics of themselves (and everyone else) as they desperately strive for perfection in everything they do. They believe in working hard to get what you want, and sometimes they work too hard trying to change their partner or improve their relationship.
Virgo needs to understand that not everything will always be perfect, and pushing a partner to change will just push them away.
Libra (September 23 – October 22):
Know yourself before getting into a relationship.
In astrology, Libras are represented as scales, which means that they crave harmony and balance in all aspects of their lives. This can leave them in a constant state of indecision, unsure of what they want or need.
This is not the best trait for a relationship, since Libra can be completely happy in their relationship one moment, and secretly look for a better partner the next. Libras need to examine themselves and their desires before entering into a relationship to make sure they want it.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21):
Don’t be so intrusive.
Scorpio has as much passion as energy and likes to be in control of their work life as well as their relationships. However, this need for control can sometimes become overtly possessive, and Scorpio will often smother their partner with their obsessive antics.
If this water sign can’t figure out how to relax and give freedom to their partner, then their relationship will eventually die.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21):
Don’t be afraid to make commitments.
Sagittarians are curious and optimistic creatures who enjoy the freedom to explore and try new things. That is why they are so hesitant to make long-term commitments: work, home, or relationships. They fear that they will lose their sense of freedom and be forced to live a boring daily life or routine.
This causes them to miss out on all the good things that come with a serious relationship or career. Sagittarius must work on his fear of commitment and understand that the other person can really give him happiness, and not take it away.
Capricorn: (December 22 – January 19):
Don’t be afraid to open up.
Capricorns are ambitious and career driven, and they don’t find time for anything other than work. They may also appear cold or unemotional. They may find it difficult to open up or show their vulnerable side in a relationship. Capricorns need to understand that sometimes it’s okay to put work on the back burner and let your feelings take center stage for the sake of the relationship.
Aquarius: (January 20 – February 18):
Do not overdo it.
Aquarians are inquisitive people with their unique thoughts and ideas. This air sign tends to spend a lot of time in their thoughts, mulling over issues rather than recognizing their own (or others) emotions. This can make them constantly think about things in search of a rational explanation for what is happening. Aquarius needs to learn to stop thinking with his head all the time and start feeling with his heart.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20):
Don’t get lost in the clouds
The water sign Pisces practically invented daydreaming. This sign can get lost in their fantasies and tend to idealize their partners or relationships. This becomes a problem when a Pisces partner doesn’t fit the romanticized version in their head, which makes them want to end the relationship.
Pisces needs to understand that putting others on a pedestal will only backfire, and accepting people for all their flaws will make relationships happier in the long run.
