Why You Struggle With Making Friends (And Keeping Them), According To Astrology

You ever wonder why you don’t get the things in life, like lasting friendships, that you were almost certain you are supposed to have. Whether it’s in your family, love life, career, friendships, etc. they’re all frustrating situations to be in.

Friendships are an important part of life, and there's a reason why it's hard to make them. But, part of that reason can be associated with your personality traits. What describes you most is your zodiac sign's horoscope and you can learn about that through astrology.

Friendships are chance meetings that turn into something more over time. You may make a friend over something as simple as a common interest or when you needed help that person just happened to be there and they stuck around for longer than that one occasion.

There’s one thing that all of those facets have in common though that you’re probably not taking into account, destiny. First and foremost do you believe in it? Or do you believe that you are 100% in control of the things that happen to you? This belief can translate into the way that your zodiac sign goes about making friends in your life.

If you don’t believe in it then you probably just take responsibility for being every time you are unable to accomplish what you set out to accomplish, no matter what your zodiac sign is meant to do. You probably also don’t fret about it for too long and keep it moving.

If you do believe in destiny then you most likely live by the saying “everything happens for a reason.” Therefore you’ll have that mentality whenever something goes left in your life and you really wanted it to go right. However, despite having this mentality, people who do typically harp over those situations again and again, especially if you got no closure.

With all of that being said, what’s one thing that most people want in life? Real love with our soul mate. In a survey done back in 2011, a heaping 90% of Americans responded to a survey that they personally believed in true love.

However, not to burst anyone’s bubble, but some of us will just never get to experience what true love is like (due to a multitude of reasons). That’s just the cold hard facts of the matter. Maybe it’s because we get in our own way, maybe it’s because we were never deserving of it or maybe it’s because of our zodiac sign. Yes, that’s one thing that could determine it whether you knew it or not.

Depending on our zodiac sign, some of us are way more ready for a relationship than others, so let’s find out why each zodiac struggles to make new friends, even after trying hard to put ourselves out there, according to astrology.

1. ARIES (March 21-April 19)

Aries are known for playing life by ear. Therefore things that become commonplace and routine are a turn off for you. You get an adrenaline rush off of being outside your comfort zones, so when being in your comfort zone and in any state of stability you may go crazy to the point where you have to back out of the relationship.


2. TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

The Taurus sign is known for being guarded and not letting everyone in due to the belief that people are out to wrong you and usually are in the wrong if they don’t believe in doing things your way. One might sum this up as being close-minded, and rightly so. Needless to say, an argument with a Taurus usually is like pulling teeth. With that being said being in a relationship with this type of person can be like a nightmare sometimes depending on how much patience a person has.

3. GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

The Gemini sign is known for not being in touch with their emotions in any facet of their lives. To others who see this on a regular basis, it’s typically perceived to them that the Gemini is cold and distant. If you’re around a Gemini who is like this you’ll begin to accept this as fact too most likely. So unless someone wants to work with you on doing something as basic as being in touch with your emotions, you probably aren’t the type for them.

4. CANCER (June 21-July 22)

On the other end of the spectrum, Cancers are known for being extra sensitive and emotional, which sometimes is a downfall for you. The con of being this way is that you know no bounds when it comes to expressing your love and adoration for those you’re fond of. The problem with that is that by just expressing favor of this person can get you in trouble with your significant other, especially if they’re the jealous type. Needless to say, nobody wants to be constantly checking if their significant other is just being nice to someone or having relations with them.

5. LEO (July 23-August 22)

Leos are known for being desperate attention seekers. The type that doesn’t know how to act and will lose their s**t when they’re not the center of attention. This is not only annoying but also is perceived by others as condescending. An even more serious concern is how you would react to you and your partner having a kid together? Would you be able to handle the sharing of attention?

6. VIRGO (August 23-September 22)

Virgos are typically known for being analytic freaks. This usually screws up your relationships because you can overanalyze things that either isn’t that serious or not worthy of being analyzed. On that same token, you will constantly criticize your partner every chance you get, which obviously is annoying.

7. LIBRA (September 23-October 22)

Libras are one of the more bearable signs when it comes to relationships. You’re consisted and committed. However, if you have personality traits that your significant other doesn’t like, that may be a problem because you will be consistent with it. You can also be predictable, which is a problem for some.

8. SCORPIO (October 23-November 21)

Scorpios are cynical about just everything. You even doubt how real true love is and can be skeptical of the person you are in a relationship with for the time being. In your defense this isn’t just because though; it’s usually because of your fear of getting hurt. The worst part about this is that in turn, you have no fear of doing something that can lead you to hurt them first (as a sort of defense mechanism). This obviously can hurt or end the relationship.

9. SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21)

If you are a Sagittarius then you know you don’t necessarily need companionship; however, this can easily become a problem. The reason why is because that sense of independence and solitude is so important to you that you don’t fully give yourself to anyone at risk of losing that.

10. CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19)

Capricorns are very ambitious and driven in life, which is why you are sometimes reluctant when it comes to relationships because you severely fear being in a predicament where you have to choose between your goals and your partner, that being because you will most likely choose the former.

11. AQUARIUS (January 20-February 18)

The Aquarius sign is known for being kind of mysterious and unbothered, which can make you a hard person to read. Anybody involved with you will most likely feel like they’re solving a Rubik’s cube when trying to figure you out. As a result, your partner may feel insecure/insecure about both themselves and the relationship, which can cause them to just bail on the union.

12. PISCES (February 19-March 20)

If you’re a Pisces you basically live in Wonderland. You spend a lot of time thinking about how you would like things to be. However when reality sets in you struggle dealing with it. Needless to say, a relationship isn’t all rainbows and butterflies, so if you seem to be in denial, this can turn your partner off.
