No one likes to feel as if they're being suffocated in their relationship.

Attachment issues are common in relationships, where one of the partners is too attached or the other isn’t attached enough. Rarely does there seem to be the same level of attachment for both partners.

Are you one of the zodiac signs who get too attached? If astrology and horoscopes have anything to say about it, there are some signs who are more susceptible to attachment issues. 

But what makes someone get too attached? If you’re a very emotional person, have abandonment issues, have experienced shocking and painful breakups, or have gone through times where you felt completely alone and on your own, these problems may make you cling to someone.


When you’re so attached to someone that they feel as if they can’t breathe because you’re holding on so tightly to them, that can put a strain on a relationship. It’s one thing to have an equal partnership, but when one partner is too dependent on the other one for their happiness, there will be problems in the relationship.


You can love someone with all your heart and want to spend time with them, but you have to give them space. If you’re too attached, you put yourself at risk for losing part of yourself because all your focus is off you and on someone else.

1. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

The process of getting to know someone and having a relationship with them is often accelerated with a Cancer. They confide in people much too quickly and they don't hold back on what they tell them. The concept of TMI is lost on a Cancer when they're getting attached to someone.

If a Cancer is revealing their deepest and darkest secrets to someone they haven't known for long, it shows they are compensating for something that's missing in their life. It's one thing to be vulnerable and share your feelings, but unloading all your baggage to someone you just started dating is putting a burden on them.

2. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces just want to love and be loved in return, so they may be a little overanxious when it comes to developing a relationship. It's easy for Pisces to get too attached.

One of the ways they learn about someone is by overanalyzing their social media activity. It's one thing to investigate someone before you go on your first date, but Pisces goes beyond that with their social media stalking. They'll check their partner's Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter throughout the day and make notes on who they are engaging with.


It would be one thing if Pisces was discreet about their surveillance of their partner's social media, but they're not, because they can't resist commenting themselves.

3. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

You know when an Aquarius is a little too attached because supporting their partner's ambition becomes the most important thing in their life — even more than their own goals. It makes sense that when Aquarius spends so much of their time with another person they would want to do whatever they could to support and encourage them, but losing themselves in the process isn't healthy.

When a couple has their own interests and goals they pursue, it adds a positive element to the relationship. But when you lose your life because you've lost sight of who you were and are outside of the relationship, that's harming yourself. The best thing to do is to detach a little and get back on track.

4. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Geminis love to be around people, but when they're too attached to someone, no amount of people can take away the loneliness Gemini feels when their partner isn't there. They will try to fill the void they feel without their partner, but that doesn't work and just makes them feel more alone.

Gemini needs to get back their sense of independence and remember how much they enjoy alone time. To have your mood be dependent on someone else takes away your power.

5. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

When Virgo is too attached, they become too accommodating. They don't mind being at their partner's "beck and call" because it makes them feel closer to the person and needed. Virgo, normally quite opinionated, will agree with almost everything their partner says, will change their lifestyle to align better with their partner's life, and take it upon themselves to help their partner, even when it's not wanted.


If Virgo's partner wants them to drop everything to come over and hang out with them, they will do it, even if they have something more important that they're working on.
