Why do some zodiac signs do better in a long-distance relationship than other ones? Is it because astrology favors certain signs over the others? It's more than just what your horoscope says, because there are certain qualities you need to make that relationship work. 

Long-distance relationships aren't easy. Your relationship needs to have a very strong foundation if there’s to be any kind of relationship once the distance part has been removed. You need to feel secure that if you’re not with your partner, that they’re still honoring your commitment, and that they are as fully invested as you are.

Communication is also key making an long-distance relationship work. Frequent phone calls, text messages, and Skype calls throughout the day are a must to keep the connection between the two of you. You never want to let too much time pass without seeing each other, so scheduled visits are mandatory.

Try not to put too much pressure on yourselves when you visit. You want to make the most of it, but there are times when you might be too exhausted to enjoy yourselves. You may get into a fight, get annoyed, or feel as if you want to get away from your partner. Just because one visit isn’t perfect or even good, it doesn't mean the whole relationship is doomed.

Focus on the big picture. Eventually, the two of you will be able to be together, but for a while, you must make the best of it and get through this time apart. It could be a good time to work on yourself so that when you’re back together, you are a stronger and healthier human being.

1. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

It can be challenging for a Sagittarius to fully commit to a long-term relationship, which is why an LDR is good for them. They can see it as a way to ease into a relationship without feeling suffocated. With an LDR, a couple can grow to know each other emotionally and mentally. Plus, Sagittarius would enjoy going to where their partner is and experiencing a new place.

The only thing that a Sagittarius individual needs to watch out for is saying something insensitive or tactless — there are times when it's not a good idea to be brutally honest.

2. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Geminis are great communicators, and this is a fantastic trait to have when being in a long-distance relationship. They will be sure to talk, message, or text daily even if it's just a "good morning," "good night," or an "I love you." Emojis are great too and Gemini may even come up with their own special emoji phrase.

Also, short videos are also used to keep their connection strong. When Gemini and their partner talk, it's not all deep conversation, it can be some dirty talk, or inside jokes, the kind of things you have with your significant other.

3. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

When an Aquarius individual is in a long-distance relationship, they will make the best of it by enjoying their alone time or seeing friends and family as often as possible. When an Aquarius is in any kind of relationship, they are still independent.

The trick for an Aquarius in an LDR is not to get too used to being alone. It's a balance that Aquarius must attain. They can't be swallowed up by loneliness, but they can get so good at being by themselves that when their partner is with them, it makes Aquarius feel suffocated and controlled.

4. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

When in a long-distance relationship, Virgo will learn everything there is to know about where their partner is and what they're doing, so that when they go to visit them, they're interested and enthusiastic about the life that their partner is living.

Virgo and their partner will also come up with things they can do together like play an online game or watch a TV show while talking about it on the phone. Sometimes they'll have a Skype call while doing mundane things like eating dinner or doing the laundry.

5. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus don't go into a relationship lightly, so when they're in one, they're committed. They have a discussion with their partner at the start and set the ground rules. For Taurus, it's a relationship just like any other, which means that there needs to be a high level of commitment for both parties and that they are exclusive.

Taurus tend to get jealous, so communication needs to be clear. There should be no Instagram pictures that could be misconstrued. When the couple is together in the same space, Taurus will need a lot of touching and physical closeness to feel connected again with their partner.

6. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces love romance, so with an LDR, expect a lot of it. When Pisces is separated from their partner, they will use that time on creative projects, using their partner as inspiration. When alone, Pisces will go inward and fantasize about what their life will be like when they're finally together.

Pisces will send special gifts to their partner to let them know that they're thinking of them. While they won't demand that their partner also send them gifts, they will be beyond delighted when their partner shows them in some way that they're thinking of them too.

7. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorns take relationships seriously, even long-distance ones, and they're prepared to do whatever work is necessary to make their relationship successful. If their partner needs them for any reason, Capricorn will jump on a plane and be there for them.

For a Capricorn, a long-distance relationship with no finish won't work. They need to make a timeline with their partner where they put down estimated times together, apart, and the end date. Capricorn must feel that both partners are working toward a future that is in sight. No vagaries for Capricorn — they need to know exact dates and times.
