You can be stubborn and possessive which eventually will not serve you well after summer ends and your partner needs some space from you. Summer is a laid-back time so try not to take the relationship too seriously.


GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

You are a social butterfly who is always ready for some fun. You love meeting new people and getting to know them. Your a chatterbox and will want to share everything with your summer fling, which will help the two of you form a close bond even if the romance sizzles out long with the warm weather.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer summer flings are not for you. The short-lived, unpredictable nature of a summer romance will not appeal to your security longing sensibilities. You like the feeling of protection and having a strong sense of home.

You don't like change and feeling uprooted from the life you've built for yourself, so if you are suddenly faced with a fleeting relationship it will be quite the challenge for you. The anxiety a summer fling is bound to inflict on you is just not worth it.

Stick to enjoying your summer with friends and family but if you do find yourself in a summer romance try not to overthink it. Just go with the flow and enjoy it for what it is in the moment.

Like the scales, you represent you’re always going back and forth on your feelings and it’s hard for you to make up your mind. If you determine your summer fling is worthy of your love you will stick to them like glue. Remember to keep your disposition of dependency in check when engaging in a summer romance.

You are a good communicator when you open up so it’s a good idea to be upfront from the start and let your partner know you aren't looking for a deep connection right away.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)
