The Kind Of Partner You Really Need, According To Your Zodiac Sign

the right partner for you
Love, Zodiac

The stars know what you need.

Wouldn’t it be great if life was like a romantic comedy? You could meet the person of your dreams in a cute way, there’d be a few simple hurdles that you would climb over and then there you’d be with a happily ever after life.

Obviously, life isn’t as easy or as cute as it is in the movies and finding your perfect or even your most compatible partner isn’t easy; in fact, it can be quite challenging.


When someone really is the one — the person that you want to spend all your time with — and is someone who makes you feel healthy, happy, and whole, it may not be clear when you first meet that they are all that.

You should get to know them and go beyond the person they are on the surface. What happens if you don’t like them initially and immediately put them in the reject pile? Sometimes it takes a bit of faith to give them a chance to show who they really are and let you see the fantastic qualities they have.

There are times when we don’t even know what the right partner for us looks like. We think we want one thing but what we need is something entirely different. It can be scary to date out of your comfort zone.

If you’ve had several failed relationships in the past, how do you know that you’re ready to move forward with someone new? You don’t want to settle for someone who isn’t right just to be part of a couple. And yet, you don’t want to be too picky and run the risk of never finding someone.


It may seem as if everybody has an opinion about what qualities you need in a partner, but the only opinion that matters is your own. If you need some guidance, here’s the right partner for you, according to your zodiac sign.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

You need someone who's like you in the way that they're open to doing things and are competitive, but your perfect partner will also have a cautious side. Aries, you need someone who will make you think about it first before you do something and who won't react when you suddenly have an anger episode. You need someone who will encourage you to fly but remind you to make sure your wings are strong first.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus, you need someone who's the epitome of trustworthy — an ex boy scout perhaps? You don't trust easily and you like to take things slowly — sometimes too slowly — so you need someone who moves at a faster pace than you do but has a strong sense of integrity and moral values.

You won't do well with someone who gets a charge out of pointlessly stirring things up. You want to them to be higher energy than you but still be chill.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

You need someone who is great at deciphering mixed messages and doesn't need constant hand-holding. This person isn't going to get upset when you leave them alone at a party; they're going to have a great time with or without you. They don't take the obnoxious or indifferent things Gemini does personally and are a "live and let live" kind of person. They're game for anything.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

You need someone with an old soul who understands the meaning of true romance, someone whose mission in life is to make sure that Cancer knows they are loved and cared for. They'll always be there when you need them and if you're feeling extra needy, they have the patience to let you cling to them. They are the kind of person who not only loves everything about you but makes you feel safe.

The right partner for you is your equal in every way. You don't want your partner to fade in the background when you take center stage — you want them to be up there with you, standing tall and proud. While Leo's perfect partner is strong, they're always gentle and know when you need to be reassured with either physical actions or verbal affirmations.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

You think that your perfect partner would be heavily into research and be very analytical, but then it would be like being in a relationship with yourself. Virgo, you need someone who is more outgoing, literally and figuratively, who will get you to go out and meet people. Someone who encourages you to get out of your shell and to experience life rather than read about it all the time.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

You need someone with a strong personality but who isn't overbearing. It's not that you're submissive, but you do like it when someone is more dominant than you and who will make the tough decisions for you. Libra, you want them to be completely comfortable with themselves as it will make you feel as if your relationship is balanced.

You need someone who is loyal, trustworthy, strong AF, and who tells the truth. It's not easy being in a relationship with a Scorpio and things can get intense where you're concerned, so they need to be able to take it. If they have a strong sexual appetite, even better. You're passionate and your partner can't be overwhelmed by it when you get intense.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

You need someone who understands that you need your space and won't, under any circumstances, try to tie you down. If Sagittarius thinks someone wants them to make a huge commitment — not only to them but to a place — they are gone. You need a partner who can be satisfied knowing that you can care about them without you making any promises.

Capricorn, you need somebody who is as career driven as you are and who has all a strong sense of purpose. If you could do a credit check on a potential partner without it being invasive and illegal, you would. You just need somebody who understands how important it is to plan for the future and to be careful with their finances.

You need someone who can adhere to the minimalist lifestyle and who isn't into material possessions. Aquarius wants someone to be a free spirit and someone who is flexible and open enough to just pick up and go. They should be someone who cares about the earth and its inhabitants and will do whatever they can to help.

You need someone who will ground you when you get lost in your Pisces fantasy world. They should be supportive and a true fan of your work, whether it be artistic or ingenious. They give you the space that you need to create but they also help to sustain you both body and soul.
