There are all types of people who will come and go throughout your life.

You will have karmic friendships and turbulent lovers who make you feel like you're losing your mind. Then, there are twin flame connections and past-life soulmates who return to show you a mirror image of yourself. 

If you ask me, there is no such thing as coincidence in life. There are just some things that are just way too special to explain away as coincidence.

In astrology, everything means something; each zodiac sign has his or her own purpose in this world and it's important to know that we need each zodiac sign in our lives in some way or another — but what does it mean if you're always attracting the same zodiac sign?

Why do I keep attracting the same zodiac sign?

If you keep meeting people with the same zodiac sign, there's probably something you need to learn due to new planetary aspects affecting your astrological natal chart.

1. They're providing you with something you lack.

Maybe running into Aries and Leo mean you need to have more confidence in yourself and your work.

Whether we know it already or not, there are so many things we can learn from each zodiac sign.

Since we all have our strengths and weaknesses, it's important to help others and let others help us when it's needed.

Each zodiac sign can enlighten you in its own unique way; it's just up to you to listen to them and figure out what they're trying to teach you.

2. They're teaching you a lesson.

Maybe meeting Virgos means that you need to take care of yourself more.

For example, maybe you're a headstrong Taurus, a fixed sign that has no problem standing its ground. There's nothing wrong with that, but it's also important to remember to give a little, which an empathetic Pisces will teach you.

It's important to live a life where everything is a new learning opportunity because it means you're always open to growing and being a better you.

3. You have qualities that sign needs to learn.

In the same way, you can use these divine meetings to help other people, too.

Use your zodiac sign's strengths for good and always show your best self to others; there may be a chance that they'll ask for your help one day.

Why you might attract each zodiac sign

In order to help decipher why a specific zodiac sign keeps popping up in your life, pay attention to the placement that the sign occupies. For example, consistently meeting the same Moon signs might reflect an emotional lesson for you whereas attracting the same Sun signs or elements might represent something you lack in your own chart.

Why you keep attracting Aries

Does it feel like you’re just floundering at work?

There’s a difference between “getting by” and “succeeding” and right now, you’re probably just barely getting by.

You have a lot of opportunities to succeed and show everyone why you’re a force to be reckoned with.

If you keep meeting an Aries, there’s a good chance you’re not fighting for yourself as often as you should be.

But life gets in the way sometimes and it’s not always so easy to act on your promises.

Follow Aries’ cutthroat determination and really learn what it means to fight for yourself.

Whether that means fighting for your place in a busy workplace or just proving to yourself that you deserve to be here, wherever “here” means for you.

Don’t let the what-ifs determine how and when you succeed.

Why you keep attracting Taurus

Taurus is the kind of zodiac sign that makes relaxation look like a work of art. If only we could all tell ourselves that we were going to chill out for an hour or two and actually mean it and not spend that time nosing in on other people’s lives on social media.

If you keep running into a Taurus, you probably are in desperate need of taking time for yourself.

If that means blocking your calendar for an afternoon or setting a reminder on your phone, make it happen; relaxation is a very underrated activity.

We live in a world where everyone is always on the go. Yet, somehow, Taurus is able to push pause on this chaos and really enjoy some downtime.

Scheduling some much-needed me-time every week will not only help you slow down for a bit, but it will also do wonders for your concentration and productivity in the long run.

Why you keep attracting Gemini

There are a lot of ways to feel stuck. You can feel stuck physically, but you can also feel stuck emotionally or mentally.

When you allow yourself to get into the same routines every day, it can start to feel like you’re not actually going anywhere.

You might not even realize this right away until you find yourself constantly interacting with a Gemini.

If you do realize that there have been more Geminis around than usual, it could be because that “stuck” feeling is taking over your life.

The best thing you can learn from Gemini is how to get out of your comfort zone.

This doesn’t necessarily mean doing something crazy and scary. What it can mean having that promotion conversation with your boss or getting out of a relationship you know is bad for you.

You learn how to live on your own.

If anyone can show you just how worth it it is to get away from the norm of everyday life, it’s Gemini.

Why you keep attracting Cancer

Cancer is the zodiac sign of home; of finding that special and important person or place that you know you can always come back to when life gets to be a little too much to handle.

If you keep meeting Cancers, you could need to make more of an effort to spend time with your family and friends; to get back to that “home” feeling you’ve been missing.

We all have busy lives and family doesn’t always expect you to be there whenever they call.

But when we get too caught up in our jobs and social life, we often forget how nice it is to be able to come home.

Home is wherever (and in whoever) you find joy. Just because Cancer is your reminder that you need to spend more time with family doesn’t mean you have to travel thousands of miles to do so.

Maybe you just need to video chat with your siblings, make one of your parent’s home-cooked recipes for dinner, or just have a heart-to-heart with someone who feels like family to you.

Why you keep attracting Leo

How easy is it to get comfortable in the routine of life, love, and work?

Honestly! You have Netflix-binge nights on Fridays with your bae, you clock in and out without anything spectacular going on at work. You and your BFF have come to the conclusion that texting each other during The Bachelorette counts as hanging out.

Really, what would Leo say? Probably something along the lines of “get off your booty and go to work!” Not actually work, but you get it.

If you’re constantly face-to-face with a Leo, it means you need to hustle harder.

Take on that massive project at work, book a getaway weekend for you and your boo, and tell your friend to stop encouraging your lazy behavior and lay off the wine already.

Leo is a fierce zodiac sign and is a great role model if you need fierce motivation to push yourself harder. You may be exhausted at the end of the day, but you’ll be satisfied, too.

Why you keep attracting Virgo

One of the easiest mistakes we make in life (that everyone is guilty of) is putting people’s needs before our own and then completely forgetting we even have needs until it’s too late.

It’s almost second nature to forget that we have limits and that there’s nothing wrong with putting yourself first. If anyone is the best advocate for self-care, it’s Virgo.

If you keep seeing Virgo everywhere, you could be in desperate need of some self-care yourself.

Take Virgo’s lead and take better care of yourself. Treat yourself to that iced coffee if it’ll make you smile more during the day. Turn your phone off for an hour and put on a face mask after work.

And there’s nothing wrong with telling your boss that you just have way too much on your plate right now to take on another project.

We so often forget to take care of ourselves that Virgo can be that much-needed reminder for you.

Why you keep attracting Libra

Libra is one of those zodiac signs that everyone needs in their life, without a doubt. There’s something about the air that surrounds this zodiac sign that is just filled with beauty and a sense of calm.

If you’re running into a Libra time and time again, you probably need some of this calmness in your own life.

The best thing you can learn from Libra is how to be a little nicer.

This world doesn’t always have the niceness it needs, but Libra always still seems to make an effort to ensure that smiles and friendliness are contagious.

No one is saying that you’re mean or rude, but maybe you need to help those in need more often or even be nicer to yourself.

Libra will tell you that there’s nothing wrong with sharing a smile with the world.

Why you keep attracting Scorpio

If you keep meeting a Scorpio, then you’re probably in for a very big wake-up call.

Take it from Scorpio: it’s so much better to push yourself until you think you can’t anymore just so you can prove that you can succeed in any situation.

Meeting a Scorpio means you need to stop giving up so easily, whatever that might mean for you.

Chances are, you already know that one intense Scorpio who can both inspire and scare you with the amount of motivation and hard work that goes into everything they do.

Take a page out of Scorpio’s book and push your limits. The only time you should be saying “no” is when you’re faced with the opportunity to give up.

Whether that’s giving up on yourself, your work, or your relationships, don’t give yourself the option to back out of anything.

It’s a lot of hard work and it might feel pointless at times, but just remember that if Scorpio keeps coming around, it’s for a very good reason.

Why you keep attracting Sagittarius

Running into Sagittarius over and over again means it’s time to lighten up a bit.

Life can be so serious and stressful all the time that the moment you have the opportunity to do something fun and carefree, it can feel almost foreign.

Meeting a Sagittarius means you need to start doing something that makes you happy more often.

Sagittarius is a great role model for the “don’t worry, be happy” lifestyle because this zodiac sign is constantly looking for new adventures.

You don’t have to always take a trip or spend money to be happy as long as you’re doing something that you enjoy. If you like getting exercise or baking with your BFF, then do it! If it puts a smile on your face, then Sagittarius will definitely approve of it.

Life is way too short to not take the time to smile and have fun, so the minute you start realizing Sagittarius keeps coming into your life, it’s time to leave your stress behind.

Why you keep attracting Capricorn

We can all learn a lot from Capricorn, one of the most inspiring and hardworking zodiac signs of astrology.

But if you keep running into a Capricorn, there’s probably one thing in particular that you can take away from your constant meetings: most specifically, how to be more productive.

Capricorn is constantly busy, always adding things to their schedule — but this zodiac sign never seems to break a sweat, no matter how much they’ve got on their plate. Maybe it’s magic or maybe Capricorn is just very focused, but being productive certainly helps.

You already know that objects in motion stay in motion and objects at rest stay at rest, right? So, by that logic, Capricorn is constantly staying productive and motivated, no matter what, because they’re always on a journey to success.

Take some notes on this because there’s a good chance that you’ve been slipping on your responsibilities and finding it hard to concentrate on what’s most important.

Why you keep attracting Aquarius

Aquarius is one of those zodiac signs who prefer to look to the future, rather than worry about the past.

The hard thing about that, though, is that the future is very unpredictable… so how can someone prepare for the future when things are bound to go awry?

For Aquarius, being in control helps. Knowing that if they want something done right, they have to do it themselves is a driving factor in making sure that the future is full of possibilities.

If you keep meeting an Aquarius, you could be experiencing feelings of being out of control or letting others dictate your life.

Follow Aquarius’ lead and rebel against those who want to try to control you just so that you can regain your own control.

Aquarius doesn’t play by anyone else’s rules but their own and that mindset seems to help them stay focused on what matters most in life.

Feelings of chaos, helplessness, and just feeling lost are all reasons an Aquarius could be in your life.

Why you keep attracting Pisces

We spend a lot of our time in life-wrenching ourselves back into reality because that is what is deemed most important.

Daydreaming, drifting off, and even having an active imagination are often seen as childish and time-wasting because getting caught up in your thoughts doesn’t help anyone out in the real world.

Of course, Pisces doesn’t believe that for a second. If there is a Pisces everywhere you look, you probably need a reminder that this isn’t always true.

You can learn a lot from Pisces, especially letting yourself dream. You don’t have to stop dreaming just because you’re not a child anymore. 

It’s a good way to remind yourself that life is too short not to do everything you’ve always dreamed of.

Follow Pisces’ lead and let your imagination run wild. Giving yourself countless opportunities to turn your dreams into reality is what life is all about, right?
