The Main Reason Your Relationships Never Work getty

Relationships are hard. You take two lives and merge them into one, so it's natural to butt heads at some point or another. And whether we want to admit it or not, many of us have at least one personality flaw when it comes to our romantic relationships. Exactly what your relationship flaw is may have something to do with astrology.

Find out how your zodiac sign is accidentally sabotaging relationships. Once you're aware of it, you can take the steps to change for the better.


Aries (March 21st – April 19th)

As an Aries, you are constantly on-the-go searching for your next adventure. You are sort of all over the place in life, and sometimes even in your relationships. You hate being bored, and if someone isn’t filling all of your expectations and wildest dreams, you tend to get bored of them too. You ruin relationships by expecting them to always be an adventure. Sometimes, just being with the one you love is an adventure in itself. You don’t always need to be doing something fun to have fun with somebody.

Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)

As a Taurus, you have a hard time letting go of the past. No matter how much time has gone by, you tend to hold grudges and use situations from the past against your significant other. You ruin your relationships by doing so. You can’t seem to fully let things go, and it puts a major strain on your love life. If someone wrongs you in any way, they will likely pay the price for the rest of their life.

Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)

As a Gemini, your mind is constantly changing. You find it difficult to set your sights on one particular thing, or one particular person. You’re ruining your relationships by thinking the grass might be greener somewhere else, instead of watering where you are right this moment. You won’t find success in love until you let go of the idea that someone else is out there waiting for you. Focus on what you have at the moment you’re in and appreciate it before the moment is gone too soon.

Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)

As a Cancer, you need to be in complete control in a relationship. You may come across as being super clingy, or even invasive to your partner. And that’s because you want to know every little minor detail about them and want to connect on a deep level at every given moment. That’s because you are an extremely deep thinker, Cancer. You want to find that profound connection with your significant other, which is a great thing. But, sometimes it will come off as being far too intense for their liking, which may turn them off completely. You must give them a moment to breathe on their own, and then they will come to you.

Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)

As a Leo, it’s your way or the highway. It’s always been this way. You’re constantly ruining relationships by always needing everything to go your way. You’re terrible at mixing in compromise because your ideas are always better. You need to have things go your way and if somebody doesn’t go along with that, you kick them to the curb. Leo, sometimes you just have to agree to disagree. Just because someone doesn’t have the same opinions or beliefs as you, doesn’t make them wrong. If you can’t learn how to compromise within your relationships, you won’t be having any at all.

Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)

As a Virgo, you can’t get your head out of your ass long enough to keep a meaningful relationship. You whine about the smallest things and your attitude can go South very quickly. Your partner is turned off by your negativity. You ruin your relationships by letting negativity run your life. You can’t be happy with somebody else until you are happy with yourself, Virgo. And if you continue to dwell on the negative parts of life you’ll never be able to enjoy all the good things life has to offer. Whether that be in love or in life in general.

Libra (September 23rd – October 22nd)

As a Libra, you are a delicate, fragile soul. Your sensitive nature is something you should admire about yourself, but sometimes you are a little too sensitive. You can’t joke around easily without it turning into a sob fest because your feelings usually end up getting hurt. Your relationships are ruined by your sensitive nature. It causes you to lash out and pick fights that shouldn’t be picked. You constantly feel like you’re being attacked which transpires into you coming back swinging. Libra, remember that relationships aren’t always meant to be taken so seriously.

Scorpio (October 23rd – November 21st)



As a Scorpio, you’re ruining your relationships by shutting people out too soon. You get involved with people quickly, but if they aren’t exactly what you expected right off the bat, you shut them out right away. You don’t give them a chance to prove themselves to you. And when you do give them a chance, you get irritated with their tactics quickly and push them away. You live for the drama, Scorpio, and there is plenty of drama involved when it comes to love.

Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st)

As a Sagittarius, you are driven by indulgence. You are very hands-on with everything you do in life, especially within your romantic relationships. You want to feel totally and wholly connected to your partner, especially physically. And if you don’t feel that sort of connection right of the bat, you immediately shut down. You begin to feel as if they aren’t good enough for you or what you’re looking for. You ruin your relationships by having such a crazy high standard for passion when the passion is really there, you’re just blind to it. You never want to settle for mediocre, which is fine, keep in mind that not everyone can fill the shoes you’re asking them to.

Capricorn (December 22nd – January 19th)

As a Capricorn, you hide your emotions very well. You’ve constructed a wall around you so that nobody can get into the softer, deeper parts of your soul. You like it this way because it protects your heart from getting hurt. You ruin your relationships by not being open with your significant other. They feel like they need to squeeze any sort of information or emotion out of you painfully and it causes them to feel like you’re hiding things from them. Capricorn, open up to your lover. They are here to stand by you, no matter what demons you’re carrying with you. If they are the right one for you, they will always be understanding.

Aquarius (January 20th – February 18th)

As an Aquarius, you’re ruining your relationships by your careless behavior. You might care for someone deeply, but you don’t really show it. You are lazy with your relationships and never really put in the time to show them how important they truly are to you. You think it should be implied, but it is not, Aquarius. Relationships require work, and until you’re ready to put in work, you will ruin every single relationship that you enter. Sometimes you must go the extra mile.

Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)

As a Pisces, your need to be the life of the party sometimes is mistaken for being flirtatious or promiscuous. Your significant other may think your kind nature is too flirty for their liking. You like to talk to anyone and everyone around you. You’re always engaging in conversation with strangers and you are extremely friendly. This is a great quality to have, Pisces, but sometimes you go overboard with it. Your kind nature comes off as being a bit too flirty for your partner, and they’ll immediately assume the worst. You’re ruining your relationships by being so careless in who you engage with and how you go about these engagements. It’s okay to be a social butterfly, but realize how it might affect the one you love.
