Love, Zodiac


Do you realize how amazing you are and how anyone should feel lucky to be with you?

You’re a keeper, as they say — you’re someone who’s the complete package and someone who gives as much as they get. You make the people in your life feel loved and supported. You are exactly what we all need in a partner.


You’re not someone who is dependent on others for your power. You love and accept yourself without needing approval from anyone other than yourself. You don’t do things just to impress other people, you do them because you want to or because that’s what a responsible person must do.

When you’re in a relationship, you speak the truth and can discuss difficult topics without awkwardness. You stay in the present and you don’t bring up your past relationships as examples of successful or failed relationships. You know that love isn’t a contest or a game but something that should be treasured and nurtured.

Everybody has their own unique partner requirements and certain traits that we seek. Some of the qualities that every relationship needs are great communication skills, empathy, compassion, passion, and humor. While no one is perfect, there are some characteristics that need to be there for a relationship to work.

If you don’t have certain abilities, you make up for them with other strengths and abilities, and you’re willing to do whatever work is required to make your relationship work and for your partner to feel loved.


There may be times when it seems as if your light is being overlooked and you may doubt your gifts, but you must keep on going with the hope that eventually your perfect partner, the one who sees how incredible you are, will come along.

Astrology knows how you are the real deal and that anybody who has you in their life is blessed. Here's how to know you're dating a keeper, based on your zodiac sign.
