The stars know how open you are to an open relationship.

Monogamy isn't the only option these days. While most people may be in monogamous relationships, more and more people are having open relationships and exploring alternative love lifestyles.

Are you more suited to monogamy or polyamory? There are many factors that can make up one’s relationship preference. To some people, the idea of being with one partner only for the rest of their lives is confining and stifling, while others can’t abide by the idea of sharing their partner sexually with others.

When you’re in a polyamorous relationship, it isn’t just that you have an open relationship, it’s that you may have several partners — not just for sex, but for everything that is involved in a relationship.

If you don’t feel that your needs are satisfied by one partner, you might be a candidate for an open relationship. However, if you have strict religious values, then monogamy would be the only kind of relationship you’d consider.

Both monogamy and polyamory have their negatives and their positives, and sometimes, the positives aren’t so good when you’re actually experiencing them. You might not think you’re the type to get jealous, but then when you see your partner enjoying sex with someone else, you become a green-eyed monster.

Whenever there’s a status change, both people involved in the relationship must consent to it — it doesn’t work if you’re into polyamory but your partner is strictly monogamous; that will lead to a lot of pain for both of you.

Any kind of non-monogamous relationship must be consensual. While polyamory is on the rise, there’s no shame involved with those who prefer monogamy. The point is to be satisfied with your relationship and for it to be fulfilling to you in all ways.

Astrology can indicate if a polyamorous or a monogamous relationship would be best for you. Here's what you prefer, based on your zodiac sign.

 

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

You can go either way because of your voracious sexual appetite and energy level. Some people would get tired having sex with more than one person but you can keep going. You like a lot of spontaneity and excitement in your life and in your relationships, so having a relationship with more than one person would keep things exciting.

You do like to take risks and you'd enjoy the feeling that you were doing something that not everyone would be comfortable with. However, you are extremely loyal and are very devoted to your partner, so if they weren't on board with polyamory, you'd be okay being monogamous.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

You're well suited to a polyamorous lifestyle because you're so sensual. You love touching and being touched, and the more stimulation you get, the better. The only problem might be finding people who are easy-going as you tend to be rigid when it comes to your own opinions and ideas for doing things. You definitely need to be the alpha in the group with everyone following your lead.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Since you've got two sides to your personality, you can be either depending on the situation and your mood. You like to flirt and keep things interesting. However, you have a major problem with commitment and it takes a lot for you to commit to one person. But once you do, you're committed 100 percent.

You may not be able to commit to more than one person. You're versatile, adaptable, and can get easily distracted. It would be difficult for you to split your focus with more than one person.

Surprisingly, you're better suited to polyamory than monogamy. It's because of your emotional neediness. You don't just want partners for sex, you want people who will listen to you, care for you, and show compassion towards you. You need a team for your needs.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

You do better at monogamy. You always have a bunch of people surrounding you anyway, so you don't really need a bunch of people to commit to. You're a ride or die kind of person, so once you commit, you give your partner a lot of focus and energy. If you were in a polyamorous relationship, you might have to share being the center of attention and that doesn't work for you.

Monogamy for the win! You're all about long-term relationships with one person. You don't even like casual flings or booty calls. You are the most faithful of all the zodiac signs, so monogamy is better for you.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

You're better with monogamy. You like people but it's too difficult to keep things harmonious when there are a lot of people involved. You're loyal and completely dedicated to those you love and you wouldn't want to cause anyone any pain, least of all yourself. Polyamory seems loaded with emotional land mines.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

While you're extremely sexual, you're also better suited to one partner. When you fall in love, you fall hard and you focus all that love on your partner exclusively. You definitely wouldn't be open to our partner having more sexual partners; you want them just as focused on you as you are on them.

You like to keep things fresh and lively but when it comes to relationships, once you've dedicated yourself to someone else, you only have eyes for them. You may have several partners in your lifetime but one at a time. You're more of a serial monogamist than anything else.

Out of all the zodiac signs, yours is the most polyamorous. You're dedicated to your work and career but when you want to play, you go for it. You've got all the necessary requirements needed for the polyamorous lifestyle as you're independent, have an unlimited supply of energy, and you have a tremendous sexual appetite.

You're much more polyamorous than monogamous. You're attracted to all different kinds of people and it's their intellect, not their bodies, that really turn you on. You're independent, open-minded, and curious. You do great in a communal type of living community.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

You lean towards monogamy because it's challenging enough for you to have a relationship with one person, let alone three or four. You want romance and for polyamory to be truly successful, it takes planning and a certain amount of emotional distancing. Nothing destroys a polyamorous union faster than jealousy and anger. You're passionate and you love to give to your partner, but you'd get overwhelmed if you had to focus on more than one.
