Everyone has their own dealbreakers and must-haves when it comes to romance.
Perhaps for you it’s all about words of affirmation, or you might think a fiery sex life is essential.
Could that be down to your star sign? Some people think so.
It’s thought that relationships can bring out and intensify your star sign’s traits and drivers, because having to adapt to another person really brings home what you really need and want.
But why wait to find out what’s most important in a relationship to you or someone you’re dating?
Here’s a headstart to figuring it out…
March 21 to April 20
The Mars-ruled Aries gets bored in a nano-second, and needs ongoing stimulation, fun, hijinks and challenge to stay on top form.
When things get stale, routine or dull, Aries starts (even unconsciously) looking for a way out. If you’re with an Aries, keep things interesting, spicy, and new.
April 21 to May 21
Taureans are creatures of habit, determination, and control. They like to master their own destiny, pursue their own indulgences, and be in charge of what is getting done, and when.
To resist their decisions can be a fool’s errand because they will steam-roll ahead anyway.
If you’re with a Taurus, be sure to know their deal-breaker areas and don’t try to shift them.
May 22 to June 21
Geminis are flighty, smart, fast, and curious people, who need a high level and ongoing constant stream of interesting information, gossip, new news, ideas, and entertainment to stop their mind drifting off into the realms of overthinking and self-sabotage.
They need a lively and witty partner, who wants to go out and do stuff. If you’re with a Gemini, be prepared to enjoy a busy and active social life.
Cancer: Sympathetic attention
June 22 to July 23
Cancerians really do relish the sympathy, support, and care of those they love and like. It’s a default position for them: to be sympathised with, protected, and told to take it easy and that everything will be okay.
Does this tip over into mollycoddling? Sometimes. But they give so much love and attention in return, you’ll soon forget it.
If you’re with a Cancer, know that every now and then, they want you to take extra-special care of them and keep them safe.
July 24 to August 23
Leos are born to rule, lead, shine and perform. The world is their stage, and they adore having a captive and appreciative audience.
In a partner, they need to see admiration and respect and fascination. They need to know they’re the centre of your world, and you think highly of them in every respect.
If you’re with a Leo, make sure you praise them (when they deserve it…) and present overt, public gestures of affection. Nothing is too flashy or OTT.
August 24 to September 23
Virgos hold themselves to very high standards, and the same goes for their partner, who they almost view as an extension of themselves.
Don’t embarrass them, or the cringe factor might turn them against you, They simply can’t bear to be shamed, showed up, made fun of, or looked at askew.
Appearances really matter. If you’re with a Virgo, stay on your best behaviour in public (now, behind closed doors, it’s another story…).
September 24 to October 23
Libra is ruled by Venus, the goddess of love, pleasure, and beauty. This pretty much reflects their motivations in life.
All Librans crave harmony, beautiful environments, passionate and romantic encounters – fairytale stuff. If you’re not into extravagant date nights, grand gestures, big gifts, and flattery… then maybe you should look elsewhere.
If you’re with a Libra, it really helps to have a naturally romantic nature too.
October 24 to November 22
There’s no getting around it, Scorpios are very passionate and intense people, and this bears out most visibly in their dramatic, high-octane sex lives.
Sex is life for Scorpio. So, if it’s not happening (often and spectacularly) between the sheets, then it’s not really happening for them at all. They need physical contact, they need a strong chemistry, they need a lot of sex.
If you’re with a Scorpio, a high sex drive is a major plus.
November 23 to December 21
Sagittarians are independent, spontaneous, freedom-loving and free-wheeling people who hate to be told what to do or tied down in any way.
As partners, they need you to let them have acres of space and be able to do what they want, when they want. This can be tough, but you’ll be rewarded by a loving and passionate time when they return.
If you’re with a Sagittarius, don’t try to control or smother them.
Capricorn: Power couple vibes
December 22 to January 21
Capricorns carry the zodiac’s power couple vibe. They want a true life partner, who is as ambitious, hard-working, status-aware, and dedicated to getting the finer things in life as they are.
They don’t want to carry someone, they want an equal.
Capricorns are into their home, possessions, bank accounts, career paths, and future plans. They think big, and work hard to get there, and they expect that of you too.
If you’re with a Capricorn, you’d better be ambitious and go-getting.
January 22 to February 19
Aquarians are a little eccentric, out there, inventive, clever, and totally into their own thing.
Like Sagittarius, they need space – acres and acres of it, because there’s an awful lot going on in their mega-big brains, and they want to have a go at everything.
So, you need to be okay with them being off on their own adventures. And you need to have some of your own, so you’ve got just as interesting stuff to share when you’re together.
If you’re with an Aquarius, make as many plans apart as together.
February 20 to March 20
Pisceans are the kindest, most caring, loving, wisest, and vulnerable members of the zodiac. They are all natural empaths and absorb the emotions and moods of those around them.
As such, their partner needs to almost act as a psychic bodyguard for this sweet-natured soul. You need to protect them from toxicity, negativity, and trouble. You need to guide them towards people and situations that are good for them.
If you’re with a Pisces, make sure they know you have their back.
