Love, Zodiac

Vulnerability is a beautiful thing.

The best relationships are when we can be open and vulnerable with our partners, and they with us. Vulnerability can be scary and being vulnerable can feel like a huge risk, but the benefits are great as it can deepen and strengthen a relationship.

There is sometimes the false idea that being vulnerable means that you’re weak, but it takes strength to lay yourself open. When you and your partner open your hearts and show your vulnerability, it strengthens the bond of your relationship.


When we are vulnerable with the people we love, we are being more intimate than if we were having sex. Vulnerability helps us to feel connected to our partner on a very deep level and makes us feel closer to them.

Being vulnerable isn’t easy as we risk being criticized, mocked, and even rejected.

Your relationship may not be in the perfect place. Perhaps your partner has been unfaithful and that makes it even more difficult to trust them, but still, if you can put aside the hurt and anger and be honest about your feelings, you have the opportunity to make your relationship even stronger.

To practice vulnerability, you should get rid of your self-defeating thoughts and focus on your own strengths, not your insecurities.

Because of certain gender biases, it can be even more challenging for men to show their sensitive side as if it makes them less masculine, so when a man shows his vulnerability to you it’s proof of how much he trusts you. But sometimes, his vulnerability isn’t obvious and you have to look closer to see it.


Vulnerability is a beautiful thing and when your guy is being vulnerable with you, it will help to bring you closer and deepen the bond between you.

Here’s how you know he’s being open and vulnerable with you, based on his zodiac sign.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

With some guys, getting them to tell you that something is bothering them is like pulling teeth. Well, that's how you know your Aries guy trusts because he lets you know when something is bothering him.

Much of the time, men feel pressured to act like everything is fine as if admitting that he's upset or hurt makes him weak. But he demonstrates how much your relationship means to him when he is real about what is going on with him, even when it might make you feel comfortable.

When your Taurus guy talks to you someplace that means something to him, or when he's in a vulnerable position such as after sex, he's demonstrating how much he loves you and how much he cares about your insight on a topic. It's easy to carry on a conversation when you're at a restaurant, but it gets more complicated when you're at his parent's home or after a sex session and his defenses are down.

You know that your Gemini man is opening up to you when he not only tells you the truth when you ask him meaningful questions but when he is genuinely interested in your life and your past. He doesn't just want the two of you to only know each other on a surface level, he wants your connection to be deeper and more honest.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

You know that he's being vulnerable when he shares not just the good about his life but the bad as well. There are times when we highlight only the positive aspects of our lives as if sharing the negative will make others run off screaming into the night.

But the only way to know someone is to know the ugly, unpleasant mistakes and missteps. It can be dangerous to admit the terrible things you've done or the flaws that you have, so when a Cancer does this, he's taking a chance that you'll still be there with him.

When the world looks at a Leo they see a leader or a person with a charismatic personality but underneath is someone who has insecurities and self-doubts. You know your guy is being open and vulnerable with you when he lets down his public persona and lets you see the quiet, sensitive, and exposed side to his personality.

It's not easy for an uptight Virgo to be vulnerable, so it might take him a while, or he might be so unobtrusive about it that you miss it. If he acts nervous or jittery that's a strong indication that he's being vulnerable. He might be slowly tearing up a paper napkin or tapping his heel against the floor. He's trying to get pumped enough to be real and raw with you.

Does your Libra guy ask for your advice or opinion on important matters? This may not seem especially vulnerable, but it is. He's letting you know that he doesn't have all the answers and that he doesn't know everything, which, obviously, you know already. But it takes guts for him to admit it out loud to you.

Generally, Sagittarius is a very humorous and optimistic sign, so when he lets his guard down and lets you in on his worries and apprehensions, he's being extremely vulnerable. His first instinct when it feels as if the ceiling is about to collapse is to get away. The fact that he's not only staying but is letting you in on what's concerning him is emotionally courageous.

A Capricorn man is generally reserved, disciplined, and uncommunicative when it doesn't have anything to do with work. If he shares a secret or reminiscence from his past, he's showing you that he feels safe and comfortable with you and where your relationship is headed. He wants you to see the real him and share with you the experiences that made him who he is today.

Aquarius tend to be more comfortable with cerebral things rather than emotional things. If he is there lending an ear when you're having a bad day, that's him being vulnerable. He finds emotions rather frightening but cares enough about you to suck it up and be there when you need him.

When he shares with you the creative work that you either inspired or reminds him of you, that's your Pisces man being incredibly open with you. Pisces can get hurt because they're so unselfish that people take advantage of them. They'd rather retreat to their fantasy world than take the chance of getting hurt again, but you mean more to him than self-protection.
