Why Finding The Right Person To Love Isn't Easy, According To Astrology Unsplash

Do you feel fed up with being single? Usually when you’re having bad luck in the romantic realm there’s just a mismatch in attraction and values. But when all of your breakups start to look the same, there could be a pattern drawing you to people you aren’t truly compatible with!

Or maybe there’s some retrograde action happening in the universe that makes love hard to find. Either way there’s a lot of confusion and everything is backwards. Nonetheless, the same qualities and experiences that enrich our romantic lives more generally can help us find true love.



Challenging yourself daily, working on your weaknesses, getting to know yourself better—all of these will keep you from repeating your same mistakes over and over like a sad gif. But, where do you start?

This is where the zodiac can step in to inform you about your own tendencies, whether to run away or deny a problem exists in the first place.

Astrology can also give you some solutions to implement, such as confronting how your strengths can turn into weaknesses when you fall out of balance and taking responsibility for your own emotions. 

Find your zodiac sign below (and maybe check out your ex's sign too) and get on the path to finding true love, according to your horoscope.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

You’re very practical and disciplined, which makes you rather dependable. But Capricorn, your significant other doesn’t just need you to show up, they need you to be invested. Dive deeper into your emotions and sensuality to become a more balanced person and partner. If you’re unsure of where to start, read some books on intimacy and invest in some massage oil candles!    


Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

You say you’re looking for love, but your fear of vulnerability makes you commitment phonic, or at least that’s what anyone interested in you thinks. Instead of being aloof, try to ground yourself and experience your emotions. There’s nothing wrong with some detached daydreaming, but you can’t live your whole life out there, space cadet. Meditate on what love and intimacy mean to you to get some insight.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

Your artistic inclinations and flights of fancy are alluring qualities, without a doubt. Sadly, Pisces, you sometimes get caught up in your fairy tales. If you want to find true love, you’ll need to ground yourself and find some stability. Don’t fall into the fallacy that love will bring those things to you. You need to find yourself before you find your soulmate.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

It’s sometimes beneficial to be competitive. That sometimes is not in your romantic relationships, however. Aries, if you want to find true love, you’re going to need to stop trying to outdo your significant other. Instead, focus on learning more about and celebrating them for the person they are. That selflessness will only enrich your relationship.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

I know you’re often told as a Taurus that your stubbornness is the root of your problems. That may be true, but other things may be at play, like materialism. You’re tactile individuals, and that’s well and good. But reign it in lest it become hedonistic and overwhelm priorities, like your relationships, romantic or otherwise. 


Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

You’re an extremely social person, regardless of how you recharge (introvert vs. extrovert). Part of that, though, comes with an aversion to being alone. Gemini, don’t settle just to ensure you’re not spending time by yourself. Instead, learn to spend time with yourself and enjoy it. Only then will you be able to find your true love, rather than someone you just waste time with.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

As we’ve discussed in previous articles, Cancers are incredibly persuasive, but sometimes they go beyond making reasonable and feelings arguments, delving into the realm of manipulation.  It’s likely that your insistence on getting your way, however you manage to get it, has created significant problems in your relationships. Moving forward, be more open to compromise and letting your partner take the wheel a little more frequently.  


Leo (July 23 - August 22)

Alright, Leo, you’re probably used to being told that your pride is your biggest flaw, and maybe it is. But, your main relationship issue is a different matter entirely, and it’s a double-edged sword: you’re pathologically loyal.

Don’t get me wrong, standing by those you love is certainly admirable, but you’re sometimes too willing to sacrifice yourself, your mental health, and opportunity for people who frankly don’t treat you right. Be discerning about people who are just flattering your ego, rather than truly caring about and valuing you. 

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

While your hardworking nature lends itself to positive outcomes, your criticism prevents them in your love life. Instead of nitpicking all of the details and striving for perfection, approach your significant other with unconditional love—or the closest you can get to it. Both you and your partner will benefit from this.

Libra (September 23 - October 22)

You’re extremely diplomatic, or at least you are when you muster the courage to face conflict head on. If you don’t harness those communicative talents of yours, nothing will ever get resolved! Libra, be courageous and tackle relationship problems like you would any other. Let your inherent compassion and balance influence your romantic troubleshooting, and you won’t just find the potential for true love, but rather, you’ll nourish and sustain it. 


Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

There should be no surprises here, Scorpio: you have immense difficulty trusting others, and that is holding you back. You’re going to need to get right with uncertainty and not always being in control for true love to flourish. You’ll get there eventually, but you’ll need to be forthcoming about your insecurities and jealousy with your partner—and own them. That’s right, you’re responsible for your suspicious nature. Remember that and you’ll be just fine. 

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

While classic Sagittarius optimism is extremely attractive, it can also be the downfall of your relationship. You tend to ignore red flags because of your rose-colored glasses.


Whether your own missteps or your significant other’s are getting ignored (likely both), you need to be willing to see things for what they are, not just what you want them to be. Harness that innate curiosity you have to explore possible solutions to relationship conflicts, rather than avoiding them, and you’ll have much more romantic success.
