How Willing Your Zodiac Sign Is To Take A Chance On Love

Is a leap of faith worth risking everything for love?

If astrology told you that you were going to be faced with the decision to risk everything for love, would you take the leap of faith?

It might make a difference if you could plan for the risk, find clues in your daily horoscope, or go with the flow if it were a spontaneous decision. But I don't know how I would feel personally if my horoscope told me I had to decide between letting my relationship take its own path and taking a risk.

I am not afraid of risks at all. I find the thought of not knowing how something is going to turn out to be very exciting, in fact.

I also like the fact that if your risk ended up leading to something negative, it could be a lesson learned (or a funny story) and if it led to something positive, it could be the best thing you've ever done.

Of course, that just means it's a win or lose situation every time, but isn't life always a win or lose situation?

I know, I know, I sound totally fake deep right now (or like I've been smoking something weird), but you gotta agree with me on this — risks are WORTH IT.

I don't care if you're risking going to that shady-looking diner at 2 a.m. for some bomb pancakes or risking telling your significant other that you love him a little early in the relationship because you just know he's special, risks make every day exciting and they make life less like a set schedule of events and more like a choose your own adventure book. Fun, right?

But taking risks for love is a little different, in my opinion. Bad pancakes at that diner? The worst thing you get is food poisoning. Calculated risk in love goes totally, absolutely wrong? You could lose your whole relationship.

I know that might freak you out, and that's not my intention, but you can't deny that love can be fickle.

Not only are you risking your own future for love, but you're trusting that your partner will feel the same as you do and make the decision you're hoping he will.

But for some zodiac signs, this isn't in the forefront of their minds. They aren't thinking about risking it all when taking a chance on love. 

All they see is a chance to prove their love for their partner, and if it goes wrong, it's just another opportunity for them to try again — even if it has to be with someone new.

For others, the thought of taking a leap of faith is way too dangerous (or stupid). But don’t just take it from me; keep reading to know for sure how your sign would act when faced with the option to risk it all for love or if you would just let love take its course.

PISCES (Feb 19 - Mar 20)

As a Pisces, you always try to stay true to yourself when it comes to love. You want to be honest with your emotions as much as possible because it means that you're less likely to be led on when in a relationship; if your partner doesn't feel the same way you do, then there's no reason to keep up with the relationship, right?

That said, you hope that your honesty gets you where you want to be in your relationship, not hinder you when looking for The One. You would risk it all for love just for the chance to be with the person you love forever. You want your honest, open nature and your ability to go after what you want in love to bring you luck in life.

ARIES (Mar 21 - Apr 19)

When you're in a relationship, Aries, you want your significant other to know that you would do anything for him. If it feels like something is off between you two or if you want to spice things up in the bedroom, you will risk it all just to make your partner happy. It's not so much that you're trying to be a people pleaser, but that you want to show him that you're making an effort.

Your effort might seem overwhelming to some, but to your partner, all he sees is you going out of your way for the things you care about most in life. You aren't one to half-ass anything, so when your partner sees you trying, he knows how much it means to you to risk it all for love.

TAURUS (Apr 20 - May 20)

Taurus, you've always been known as a reliable friend and that stability is doubled when it comes to love. You would do almost anything for your significant other simply because you believe in love. You know the value of putting your all into a relationship and if the time came for you to risk it all for love, you would do it in a heartbeat.

You're also known for being stubborn, but that's not always a negative quality. In fact, if your relationship feels like it's falling apart or not as strong as it once was, your stubbornness will only help you get your relationship back on track. When you risk it all for love, you are proving that love is worth fighting for, not something to quit on when times get hard.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

New love might make you nervous, Gemini, but once you get into the rhythm of love and affection, it can consume you completely. Your one motive in a relationship — new or old — is to please your partner as much as possible. This isn't because you don't want to give him a reason to leave you, but because you want to be the best thing in his life (aww).

You often have a hard time locking things down (like plans and big decisions), but when it comes to love, you always go with your gut. You know that if your gut can get you to be with the person you love the most, then it can't do you wrong when the time comes to risk it all or call it quits. It might not always lead to staying with your bae, but your gut is never wrong about love.

LIBRA (Sept 23 - Oct 22)

Libra, you are extremely loyal to your friends and significant others, which makes you a staple in pretty much anyone's life. You want to be the one your partner can come to when he's having a bad day and you know how to placate any negative situation before it blows up. You will do everything in your power to show your boo that you're not leaving anytime soon.

When it comes to risking it all for love, you will do it just to make your partner happy. It might make you nervous at first to put it all on the line for love, but when you feel strongly about a person, that doesn't really cross your mind. All you see is an opportunity to prove love is more important to you than everything else in the world, which is incredibly romantic.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

As a Cancer, it's not uncommon for you to get attached to the people in your life, so much so that you would bend over backward for them, even if you didn't have to. When it comes to risking it all for love, there's no question about it; you'd already be jumping at the chance to show your partner how much you love him.

Your tenacity for life and love only fuels your fire to keep your relationship strong and everlasting. You would much rather go to the ends of the earth every day for your bae to prove your love instead of just telling him you love him. You can be a bit extra when you're in a relationship, but that really does just prove that you think your partner is worth the risk.

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 - Feb 18)

When you're in love with someone, you are totally invested in your future together. Your future with him might only be a few months, but in that short amount of time, you will show him that he’s not just a partner, he’s a friend to you. To you, it doesn't matter how long the relationship actually lasts for you to know if it's worth risking it all; it’s about the connection you've made.

You're an optimist when it comes to love and relationships, but you still want to know that you're making the right decisions for the right person. You don't want to put all of your effort into someone if he isn't going to return the favor, but you also know that risks can't always be calculated. Sometimes, you need to trust that the risk is worth the reward, even if it doesn't last.

SCORPIO (Oct 23 - Nov 21)

Scorpio, you're a fierce lover, there's no denying that, but risking it all for love is something that takes a lot of consideration. You want to know that the risk you're taking is worth it, which sometimes defeats the point of a risk. You aren't one to go blindly into any situation, so for someone who can sometimes be distrusting of others, risks aren't exactly your thing.

That isn't to say that love isn't important to you. Like other signs, you like making friends before lovers because you know that relationships last longer when they have a strong foundation. The thing that bothers you the most about risking it all is the thought that your partner might not feel as strongly about you as you do for him — making the risk not worth it at all.

VIRGO (Aug 23 - Sep 22)

No one is as practical as you are when it comes to love, Virgo. You make falling in love look like a science, which may not work for others, but for you, it makes sense. It's not so much that you want everything in your relationship to follow a schedule but it does mean that you're not a huge fan of surprises.

When it comes to risking it all for love, you are not the first to get on that bandwagon. Yes, you love deeply — maybe even deeper than others - but you can give up when you're hurt, which can be done pretty easily. When you're not happy in a relationship, you're more likely to find someone you ARE happy with instead of risking it all to make it better.

LEO (July 23 - Aug 22)

Leo, you're most definitely a creative and passionate lover, there's no denying that. You love to spice things up when it feels like your relationship is getting stale and, when it feels like you're having problems with your partner, you're always the first one to jump at the chance to solve the issue as soon as possible.

When it comes to risking it all for love, you tend to take a step back and really look at your relationship. You’re not one to do things just for the hell of it and you find risks to be tricky to explain, even if you're just explaining it to yourself. You would much rather know that your relationship is stable early on and let it ride on autopilot instead of taking a risk later on.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 - Dec 19)

It might seem totally out of character for you, Sagittarius, but you can be very vulnerable when it comes to love. You so often preach wanting to be free and independent, but when you find someone you're infatuated with, this all goes out the window. Of course, you still want to keep part of yourself alive in your relationship instead of just being an extension of your S.O.

Taking a risk in life is something that you do often because you find that risks keep the excitement around. But when it comes to love, risks make you nervous. You feel like you're already lucky enough to find someone who wants to be with you that if you took an unnecessary risk, you could be ruining something good.

CAPRICORN (Dec 20 - Jan 19)

There is no one more anti-risk than you, Capricorn. You are a master of controlling your emotions and making the best decisions possible - in life AND in love - that even the thought of risking it all for love makes you queasy. You want to be known as the person who can tell your partner years from now that you were always sure of the relationship.

Not only that, but you consider risks for love to be totally childish. You can sometimes be a prude when it comes to letting loose in a relationship and when you hear about others taking risks and breaking up, you want to pat yourself on the back for being smart. It might mean a little less spontaneity in your own relationship, but being smart works for you.
