How You Chase Love Away, Based On Your Zodiac Sign getty

Love is amazing but I think that we can all agree that it is scary as well. Even though everyone deep down does want to be loved, sometimes it's just easier to protect yourself. The fear of rejection and the reality that you may lose something so precious to you is enough to make you hesitate. 

Sometimes you push love away without even knowing it. The things that you are doing subconsciously can create barriers. For example, the way you act can be a little off-putting when you are trying to be romantically involved with someone. It's nothing bad, it can just be a defense mechanism

Aries (March 21st – April 19th)

When you want something, you want it immediately and this will only backfire on you in your relationship. You have to understand that not everyone moves at the same pace at you and to open your mind to the limitless imagination to love instead of staying stubbornly fixed to your old judgment.

Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)

When someone catches your attention, you want to quickly stake your claim on them and make them yours- body and soul. You feel jealous and threatened easily, which affects your relationship. You’re also too realistic in the romance department when you should just let love in.

Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)

We know that you have a gigantic heart and care for everyone. But when you’re already seeing someone, you should draw away from members of the opposite sex to avoid misunderstanding. Ease your partner’s fear by assuring them that you’re in with them for the long haul.

Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)

Your comfort zone is your safety net but nothing worthwhile ever grows there. You have to take the first step and say yes to spontaneous plans as well as to that first date. You need to choose the present over the past, and forgiveness over old animosity to live your life to the fullest.

Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)

You value your pride above all else and this can affect your relationship adversely. Learn to listen to your partner and compromise over your differences to avoid conflict. You should also accept them for who they are and give them the freedom to grow to their ideal self.

Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)

Things are perfect the way they are if only you can just get over the imperfection. Let go of control, breathe, and don’t obsess over the tiny details so that you lose sight of the bigger picture. Remember that when it comes to your feelings, all the rules don’t apply.

Libra (September 23rd – October 22nd)

You’re a great catch and it literally doesn’t take much for someone to fall for you. But you should take care to curb your sky-high expectations as what matters the most lies beneath the heart. Oh, and be careful not to lose yourself in your brand new romance as nobody is more important than yourself.

Scorpio (October 23rd – November 21st)

You never forgive or forget and the intensity of your personality will only get yourself burned. There is no use holding onto past resentment, as all it does is eat you up inside. You should also not waste your energy expecting the worst when you’re supposed to learn to trust your partner.

Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st)

You wear your heart on your sleeve and you see the best in people. Unfortunately, the reality isn’t always so rosy and it is better to let time and sincerity reveal one’s intention instead of trusting too readily. Use your intuition to guide you in whatever you do.

Your drive to succeed in your career means the world to you but it’s important to create some work-life balance. Don’t be too fixated on achieving your goals at the expense of your own emotional needs. Take note to always give others a chance and not be too quick to judge their shortcomings.

Aquarius (January 20th – February 18th)



Love has never been straightforward for you. You struggle to communicate what you feel and you’re afraid of your own feelings. To be frank, commitment scares you and you’re okay with taking things casual and assuming the other party feels the same way when in actuality, they’re bothered with your nonchalance.

Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)

You’re ruled by your emotions and they guide you in everything you do. This causes you to often cling to what you feel instead of seeing the concrete reality for what it really is, including glossing over cracks in your relationship when you should be facing it with your partner.
