No one does relationships better than you.

Relationships take a hell of a lot of work. You’d think that once you found the perfect person and each of you committed to the other, everything would be easy from that point on. It's not easy or simple but luckily, relationships are where you shine.

You know how to take care of yourself, but it gets more challenging when you add another person into the mix. How do you care for them and yourself? You don’t want to smother them or make them feel as if they can’t do anything on their own, but you want to make sure they know you’re there. Relationships take work and like any job, you need to have skills.

You can’t always do what you want when you want to do it. You need to consider your partner’s feelings and expectations.

If you want to take a trip to Cancun but your partner can’t afford to go, would they be insulted if you offered to pay for them or would they want you to take the trip by yourself? You have to consider not only your actions but the effect those actions have on your partner.

You and your partner must get extremely good at communication and learn how to be honest without being hurtful. You can’t bottle your emotions in and expect them not to explode at inconvenient times.

But on the other hand, you can’t just say anything. You know how to weigh your words carefully so that you can get your meaning across without devastating your partner.

Are arguments off limits or can you find a way to disagree without getting upset? What are the things that you or your partner can’t tolerate, and how do you determine a middle ground?

As you grow and change so will your partner, and these changes will alter your relationship so that nothing is ever exactly the same as it was. You’ve gotten good at adjusting to these changes and you're able to handle any issues that may affect your relationship.

It’s not just working on the relationship and letting it be — your real job is working on it so that it gets better. What is it that you do that makes you the best relationship partner and how much influence does your zodiac sign have on your ability to be a good partner?

You make sure that you and your partner make memories together, whether it's taking amazing trips, having adventures, attending fun classes together, or simply pretending to be tourists in your own town. You take a lot of pictures and videos to capture these moments which you can look back on when you're feeling stressed about the relationship.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

You're very intuitive where your partner is concerned and you pay attention to their wants and needs. You don't try to control them and you don't try to persuade them that your needs are theirs, too, especially if they aren't. You're able to accept the fact that their wants may be contradictory to yours and that they are an entirely separate being.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

You work very hard to remain your own person and to love yourself. You do things separately from your partner but talk about it afterward with them. By going out without them, you have things to bring back to the relationship. You don't change to please them, you remain true to who you are and the both of you are fulfilled as individuals as much as you are as a couple.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

You're naturally empathetic so it's easy for you to show your partner compassion when they're having a bad day and to cheer them up when they're feeling down. When you sense that they need to be left alone, you give them space and try not to take it personally. You remind yourself that everyone needs alone time every now and then and that it's not their way of saying they don't want to be with you.

You try not to get stuck in a rut with your partner. When it seems as if you are sinking into an endless routine, you do what you can to shake it up. Maybe you insist on the both of you ditching work for the day and going to the beach in the middle of winter, or maybe you surprise your partner by giving them the perfect gift for no reason other than the fact that you love them.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

You use your words and you use them carefully. You try never to hit below the belt when you're fighting because you know that you can't erase an insult, humiliation, lie, or any kind of verbal abuse. If you deliberately try to hurt someone with your words, even if they're not in print, they will be remembered. You breathe, count to 10 before responding in the heat of the moment, or you take a break from the negative space until you are calmer.

You make sure that there's mutual respect in your relationship. You may not always agree with your partner's opinions but you'd never call them out on them or dismiss them as stupid. You listen to them with an open mind and an open heart and you try to see things from their perspective. You work on making sure that your partner not only feels respected but valued as well.

You have a happy attitude and look for the positive in life. It's exhausting to be around someone who is constantly complaining and unhappy and that kind of negative attitude can be damaging to any relationship. You're naturally an optimistic and happy person and it's not a hardship to look on the brighter side of things. This isn't to say that you're unaware or unaffected by the bad things that happen, just that you choose to focus on the good.

You're there when they need comfort and you're there when they need a push to pursue a goal. You're insightful and the advice you give to your partner is usually exactly what they need to hear.
