When it comes to relationships, every zodiac sign is a little different. Some signs will fall head over heels in love with one single glance at an attractive person, while others could take a long time to open up and allow themselves to be vulnerable. Some would rather have a casual fling than a serious relationship, while some would never even dream of “not putting a label on it.” And some signs daydream about having a fairy tale wedding one day, while some could not care less about romantic traditions.
But no matter what your sign’s outlook on romance is, one thing is for certain: no sign is “perfect,” and they could all use a little sage advice when it comes to relationships! Every sign has something they could work on. Maybe your sign needs to work on being honest or being more open to communication. Or maybe you need to learn how to compromise, or when it’s time to let go of a relationship that has gone south. No matter what, we have some tips for you to help you figure it all out. Here is the one piece of advice that each zodiac sign needs to hear about relationships.
16-Fire Signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius):
When it comes love, fire signs are headstrong. The phrase “My way or the highway!” could definitely sum up the fire sign outlook on relationships! Naturally, these signs are a bit more stubborn than others, and they are not as open to compromise as some of the other signs are. But this is to be expected—after all, they’re called fire signs for a reason! If you’re going to date a fire sign, you definitely need to be aware of this. They can be tough to connect with, and once you do, it’s still not always easy to have a happy relationship. They are often set in their ways and do not necessarily want to change for anyone, so if you’re not compatible, it will be clear.
15-Aries: Compromise Is Always Key
This is a major lesson that everyone born under Aries needs to learn! Aries is one of the most stubborn signs of the entire zodiac, and while this may sound like a bad thing, it doesn’t have to be. They go after what they want, which is great, and they don’t feel the pressure to play by everyone else’s rules. But when they get into relationships, this quality can present a serious issue. Why? Well, they never want to bend to what the other person wants! There is a difference between strength and stubbornness, and Aries needs to learn that if they ever want to have a successful, long-term relationship. No matter how compatible two people are, they will need to compromise sometimes—that’s just life!
14-Leo: You Can’t Always Be The One Who Wears The Pants
Leo, you love to be in charge. After all, your symbol is the lion, and you are a natural born leader—there is no way around it, and anyone who wants to date you has to be willing to accept this! Luckily, there are many people out there who would be happy to date someone like you, but if you really want to make a romance work, you have to get used to one simple truth. Sometimes, you will simply have to take the backseat and allow your partner to step up and take the lead. Yes, it will feel uncomfortable at first, but sometimes, it is necessary. You can’t be the one to take charge all the time—that does not make for an equal relationship.
13-Sagittarius: Sooner Or Later, You’re Gonna Have To Commit
Sagittarius, we know that “commitment” can seem like a dirty word to you, but don’t get too freaked out just yet! We’re not here to tell you that you have to settle down right away or you’ll be alone, or anything like that. We understand that while you’re young, you’re probably going to enjoy playing the field and meeting lots of new people and that you would rather not date one guy just yet. That’s perfectly fine. But here’s our advice to you—accept the fact that at some point in your life, you will actually have to make the decision to commit to someone if they mean a lot to you and you actually want to stay with them. You can’t play the field forever!
12-Earth Signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn):
Earth signs often struggle to open up and be vulnerable. These signs are not as lovey-dovey as signs under any other element. When you meet a few fire signs, it’s obvious why they’re called “fire signs,” and the same could be said of earth signs! These signs are not the ones who will get carried away by love. If you ever called an earth sign a “hopeless romantic,” they would probably laugh in your face and totally brush off the comment—that’s just not who they are, and they’re fine with that. So, what do earth signs have to learn about relationships? Well, they need to find someone who makes them feel like they can let their guard down—that is the key to a happy relationship.
11-Taurus: Don’t Be Afraid To Be Vulnerable
Taurus is a very guarded sign. Yes, this description could apply to all earth signs, but it fits Taurus perfectly. Taurus, you do not want to give anyone the opportunity to hurt you. And you know that the moment you open up to someone and tell them your deepest, darkest secrets, you are giving them that power. Once you tell that you’ve fallen in love, forget about it—you’re just destined to get your heart broken after that, right? Wrong. Taurus, it will take you a long time to find a perfect you feel truly safe and secure with, but once you do, you will need to finally let yourself be vulnerable. It’s the only way that any of us can ever experience real love.
10-Virgo: No Man Is Perfect—And That’s Okay
Virgo, you are known for being highly critical, and you don’t see it as a bad thing! You hold yourself to a high standard, and that’s nothing wrong with that. But the problem occurs when you begin to hold other people to unrealistic standards. You end up focusing on the negatives and ignoring all of the positives. You can’t live like that forever—sooner or later, you have to relax a little and just allow people to be themselves. No one wants to live in fear of screwing up. You need to understand that no guy you date will ever be perfect, and you will have to decide which flaws you can and can’t accept. And just remember that sometimes mistakes can make life a little more interesting!
9-Capricorn: Make More Time For The One You Love
Capricorn, your work ethic and business savvy is totally inspiring, so we’re not saying that you have to let your career take a backseat for a man! Any Capricorn woman would ignore that advice, anyway. Here’s one of your biggest flaws in relationships: you don’t make enough time to spend with your partner. Over the long run, this can really damage the relationship. You are always running around on such a busy schedule that you forget to spend time with the one you love. You need to make more time for your significant other. Maybe you could start by picking once a week for date nights, or putting aside all of your other responsibilities every Sunday to go out and do something together, just the two of you.
8-Air Signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius):
Dating an air sign can be a tricky process. It’s honestly a little bit like walking on a tight rope because their expectations can change so quickly. One minute, everything is fine, and you feel like you guys are getting along great. The next day, they wake up wanting something totally different, and suddenly, your relationship is on the rocks. It can be so confusing! Yes, there are many different things that air signs could work on when it comes to romance, but whoever dates an air sign has to go in understanding that this is going to be a unique relationship—no two days will feel the same, but if you can learn how to make it work, your love could end up lasting a lifetime.
7-Gemini: Nothing Can Make Up For A Lack Of Loyalty
Gemini, you tend to struggle with loyalty. You have a hard time convincing yourself to settle down with one guy, and it’s tempting to keep another dude on the backburner just in case things don’t work out. Don’t be ashamed—you can always change, and we understand why you might be tempted to act this way. After all, it seems like guys do it all the time, so why can’t girls? Well, you don’t want to sink to the level of those guys—you’re better than that, and you know it! The one thing that you really need to learn about relationships? There is simply no substitute for loyalty. Nothing can replace this quality, and you will have to accept this reality if you want to have a successful relationship.
6-Libra: There’s More To A Guy Than Looks
In general, Libra women tend to care about looks more than any other sign. Yes, this means they care about their own appearance—they are always shopping for new clothes and makeup, and they like to get their nails done regularly—but it also means that if they’re going to date a guy, they want someone who is super attractive. However, this can often land them in unsatisfying relationships. They may end up with someone for no other reason than looks—someone who has nothing else to offer them. Libra, we’ve got one single piece of advice for you: you need to learn how to look beyond appearances. We know it sounds so simple, but it could be easier said than done. However, it is an important lesson that we all need to put into practice.
5-Aquarius: To Find The One, Fix Those Standards
Having high standards is fine, but having unrealistic standards will leave you disappointed every time—and this is exactly why Aquarius struggles in relationships. Aquarius, you tend to worry about silly things—you may want to only date guys who have seen all of your favorite movies, who know all your favorite obscure bands, and who own all of your favorite classic novels. Of course, it is always very important to have a few things in common with the person you are dating. But there are more important things to worry about—does he want the same things out of life that you do? Does he truly respect you and support your goals? Is he patient and kind? These standards are much more important to focus on.
4-Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces):
If we had to designate one group of signs as the “hopeless romantics” of the zodiac, we would definitely pick water signs, no contest. And if you’ve ever met—or even dated—a water sign, you are probably not surprised to hear this! They are definitely super romantic. Water signs are simply obsessed with finding “the one.” They are constantly chasing that happily ever after that they have always wanted. They will not settle for anything less than the best, but they also have a tendency to wear rose-colored glasses and convince themselves that someone is a better match than they really are. It’s tough to explain. They could definitely use a little advice when it comes to finding the right person, so let’s get to it.
3-Cancer: Don’t Feel Bad For Standing Up For Yourself
Cancer, you are such a kind and compassionate sign that it’s tough for you to “rock the boat.” You don’t want to cause conflicts, so sometimes when you’re upset about something, you just let it slide because you would rather keep the peace than start a fight. However, if you want to have a happy relationship, you will need to figure out when to stand up for yourself and when to let things go. You can’t simply bury your emotions every time you feel sad or angry over something that your partner does. No, you need to learn how to be honest and communicate those emotions. Otherwise, how will you two ever solve the problem that is causing you to feel that way? It’s all about honesty.
2-Scorpio: Learn To Pick Your Battles
Scorpio, you’re nothing if not a fighter—but if you want to have a happy relationship, you need to learn how to pick the right battles! It’s easy for you to feel like you need to get into an argument over every little thing if you ever want to have your way. When it comes to conflict in relationships, you have basically the exact opposite of Cancer’s mindset. Cancer feels like they can’t express themselves fully and has to compromise on what they want every time they have a disagreement with their partner. You, on the other hand, can’t help but make your opinion known no matter what is going on! It pays to find balance and figure out when the fight is actually worth it.
1-Pisces: Relationships Are Nothing Like The Movies
Pisces, out of all the hopeless romantics, you might just be the most romantic. One of your goals in life is to find a romance that is just like the movies. You want something that many people may only experience once or twice in a lifetime, and you take relationships very seriously. While we have no doubt that you will find someone wonderful who wants to stay by your side for the rest of your life, you can’t expect your relationships to play out like a Disney movie. If you go through life thinking that way, you will inevitably be disappointed in every guy you meet, because no one out there will be able to meet those standards. But here’s the thing—your relationship will be better than the ones in the movies because it will be real.
