How You Accidentally Ruin Relationships, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

We all have issues to deal with and habits that we practice. Sometimes those habits can be hard to break and those issues can be difficult to get over. Sadly, sometimes those issues and habits that we all have become a deal breaker for those intimate with us.

You are not necessarily ruining the relationship to the point that your significant other will hate you forever. It’ll just be harder for them to stay because of these certain qualities or it will be hard for you to stay. The deal breakers that we are unaware of can determine the fate of any relationship. Everyone is different and everyone has some rule that no one is allowed to break, even themselves which could mean the end of a relationship.

Learning about yourself can really increase your chances of picking a partner who fits your needs. Knowing your likes, dislikes, weaknesses, and strengths mean you already know what you don’t want in a relationship at all — and astrology can help you figure all of that out.

Here are the toxic habits of the zodiac signs in relationships.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

An Aries can be extra stubborn when it comes to revealing how they really feel. Somehow they think it is better if they keep their mouths shut about the problems they are facing in the relationship. Well, unlike what they desperately hope for, nothing in life solves itself on its own. If there are problems those problems need to be talked about with your partner. It is wrong to expect that your partner will miraculously understand when something is wrong and correct it on their own.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

A Taurus can’t let go of their competitive streak, even in the relationship. There is always a blinking scoreboard which is projected on the back of their mind. Every kind gesture, every slight made to their happiness, everything gets added on that scoreboard. You don’t need to keep a ledger with your partner. There is no competition as to who is the better person. Both of you are in this together, don’t forget that.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Geminis are just a little bit too hit-and-miss for anyone to take them seriously. They make commitments in all sincerity but nearly always fail to stick to them. What is worse is that they somehow come up with such excuses that the only person they convince is themselves. For someone who is in a relationship with a Gemini, it can get a bit tiring to be let down again and again. There will come a point where they won’t be able to trust the other person at all.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

A Cancer takes their relationship a bit too seriously. They become a lot clingy a lot too soon. There is no denying the fact that they are very loving and caring, but sometimes their clinginess becomes too restricting. You and your partner are both individuals. You are not supposed to be inseparable. Give them some space to breathe or you might lose them for good. Your relationship might be the stuff of legends but that doesn’t have to be the only thing in your life.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

For a Leo, the best thing about this world is that they exist. They have this supremacy thing going on which is a great quality for a leader, but not so much for a partner. Being a Leo you might be used to be the one who bosses everyone around. But that is not a healthy attitude for a relationship where both the partners must be equals. Don’t assume you know what is best for them and try to control their lives. Consider them as an equal and treat them so.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

Virgos have a hard time reigning in their jealousy. They make a mountain out of a molehill and that just sours the relationship. Being a Virgo, you need to understand that you cannot question your partner’s every move just because you are insecure. Rather you should work with them and try to overcome your insecurities which will allow you to have a healthier relationship.

Libra (September 23 - October 22)

Libras are very good at taking care of problems. But this makes them prone to look for problems even where there aren’t any. More problematic than that, they take it upon themselves to ‘fix’ their partners too. Just because someone isn’t as organized or tidy as you doesn’t mean that they need a lesson in planning and management. You need to let people be their own individual. Imposing your own expectations on them will not help anyone. And on that note, you are not perfect yourself. Try introspecting and working on yourself rather than worrying about your partner.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpios have zero tolerance when things don’t go the way they planned. It can be quite tiring to keep up with the expectations of a Scorpio. And the fact that they have the habit of blowing up at the drop of the hat just makes everything worse. You are not dating a machine. Your partner is human and has flaws by default. You need to be a lot more understanding and patient if you want your relationship to blossom.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius bring misery upon themselves and by no fault of anyone else. They really have low self-esteem and they keep playing on it. They always feel that they are lacking in one aspect or the other and that just makes them very negative about everything. Your partner doesn’t expect you to be perfect, but even they can’t be blamed if you bring so much negativity in the relationship. You need to learn your own self-worth and stop putting yourself down. Only then can you be truly worthy of your partner.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn has the ability to take on the world all by themselves. They are so used to being their own boss that they sometimes forget that being in a relationship means that one has to be vulnerable and open in front of their partners. You don’t need to guard yourself against your partner. You have to trust them enough to let them break your walls and know the true you.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius has this thing that doesn’t let them stand up for themselves. They think that they are being the bigger person and letting their partner have whatever they want, but in reality, they are just being a pushover. You don’t have to agree to anything that makes you unhappy. It will only fester and bring dysfunction in the relationship. Learn to make your voice heard and your concerns visible in the relationship. Being trampled upon is in no way equal to being loved.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces are known to be creative and have a flair for drama. But sometimes if their drama needs are not met they go out looking for it when there isn’t any.This might make them invade the privacy of their partner. And that is just the beginning of the many troubles that they can bring upon themselves. You need to stop letting your thoughts get ahead of you, and respect the privacy of your partner.
