Sometimes, when you've been in a relationship for a while, there's this moment where suddenly you feel yourself closing yourself off. It's like your mind is telling you to back down, and you're following along without necessarily knowing why.

It's difficult to be able to fully put your finger on why it's happening, and you might even feel annoyed that you can't connect with your SO the way you usually do. How a person deals with their love life is part character, personality, and some might say, by zodiac sign.

It's terrifying, knowing that as you pull back, you may effectively be extinguishing some of the spark that you have with your partner. But it's hard to make yourself stop once you've started. 

It may help to know WHY it is that you're feeling the need to pull back. We've put together this simple list of horoscope signs and why you're pulling back from your partner using some information from astrology.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)


An Aries starts shutting themself off because they are feeling comfortable. They've hit the point in a relationship where they can start to feel bored. Aries is known to enjoy speed and competition, and once they reach this moment where they can relax and settle in, they can start to feel bored and unsure if they want to continue. If you feel yourself shutting down, a big factor in this is that you're feeling settled and comfortable.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)


A Taurus is possessive and devoted. They're losing interest and going cold because they feel like that interest isn't being returned or respected. They also may be losing interest if they are missing out on the physical element of a relationship, as touch is an important part of their love language. Try to articulate your needs to your SO in order to explain the change in your connection and to help work towards a solution.


GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)


Most Gemini's are known for being inconsistent. In a relationship this can be driven by fear, feeling unwanted, or insecurity. All of these things will contribute to a pull back in the relationship: concious or unconcious. When combined with their need to be social, this may drive them to pull back further, or even break things off to satisy their needs.


CANCER (June 21 - July 22)


Emotional to a fault at times, a Cancer may have a stronger reaction to something small, causing them to immediately pull back from their SO. They also tend to be moody and pessimistic, meaning that they are often insecure about how a relationship may be progressing. It's a tough thing to fight against, with a Cancer doubting themselves and feeling like they can't fully invest in the relationship.

A Leo is practical, and a great problem solver. However, when it comes to a relationship they may struggle to fully cut someone off.  They arenpulling back because they haven't committed to dumping their SO, but there are problems in the relationship and 


VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)


If a Virgo begins to pull back, it's likely thet they're looking at the details. As a Virgo myself, I tend to notice something small that may easily turn me off of someone. For example, one guy missed a show I was in, and it really bothered me, to the point where I ended it. The small things are often an indication of 


LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)


A Libra pulling back is a Libra who feels insecure, and pulls back into themselves to hide it. They may be feeling like they've been treated unfairly and they're pitying themselves for that reason. Feeling somewhat slighted isn't uncommon for a Libra, but they hate being alone so they won't fully end things, just back off.


SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)


Scorpios have no problem stepping up for a fight, which means if they're backing off, there's cause to be worried. They are resourceful and at times vengeful, meaning that if they're retreating it may be to plan they're next attack. They may be ready to expose their partner of any secrets.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)


A Sagittarius' sense of idealistic morals may lead them to have unrealistic expectations in a relationship. They pull back when they think they need something better, when they're ready to move on. This may also be a result of their desire for freedom and change. 


CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

A Capricorn is resonsible and self controlled, but can also be somewhat condescending and unforgiving. When a Capricorn starts to pull back in a relationship, it may indicate that they still haven't forgiven their SO for something, and are hanging onto that grudge. This can last some time, especially because a CApricorn is extremely stubborn.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)


An Aquarius probably doesn't fully recognize that they are pulling back. In fact, their pursuit of knowledge and logic, and for pursuits other than romantic interest, they may be too busy to even realize that they are pulling back. Their need to run from emotional expression may make this difficult to explain, but ultimately they may just need a little bit of space.


PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

A Pisces may pull back in a relationship because they fear that they are losing some element of control. Their feelings are too real, the emotions too overwhelming. They are a gentle sign, and dislike cruelty and hurt. Likely, their motivation for pulling back is that they are afraid they will be hurt.
